Great Getaway Location

4.4 on March 31, 2014

Stayed at the Magnolia Place on a recent visit to Seneca Lake. It was our first experience at the Finger Lakes and with a bed and breakfast. Ted, Terry and Irish were great. They were very welcoming, provided us with great local recommendations and they cook a fantastic breakfast. We stayed in the Vinter's Room which had its own private bathroom in the room. The room was also located at the back of the building and although we did not have a lake view, the room was very quiet, clean and comfortable. We look forward to returning to the Magnolia Place in the future when the weather is nicer and taking advantage of a lake view room.

A terrific place to stay. Would recommend to everyone.

4.8 on March 27, 2014

The owners, Ted and Terry, made you feel at home as soon as you arrived. They provided suggestions on where to eat and where to visit. The common room was spacious and the activities provided for when you stayed were fun and relaxing (DVDs, games, etc.). The breakfasts were excellent...Ted's cooking was terrific. We enjoyed it everyday. Can't forget Irish, their dog. He was friendly and a lot of fun each morning playing out front. I would recommend staying here to everyone.

Excellent Stay

4.6 on March 24, 2014

We arrived just as a late snow storm in March hit town as we had hoped . Our stay was absolutely wonderful and Theresa & Ted were very accommodating and gave their 110%. They were so nice to get us take out dinner the first night, as several of inches of snow was received that day. We will definitely be back to stay their and will recommend staying at their B&B to anyone visiting the Seneca Lake area.

Girls-Only Weekend Getaway

My sister and I stayed here in July 2013 for a long weekend. This place was awesome. The food, the room, the atmosphere, just amazing. I can't say enough good things about this place - it was so nice. We are telling everyone we know to come and stay at this B&B. Go ahead and book it - you won't regret it.

Amazing Place to Stay

5 on January 13, 2013

Ted and Terri were the best hosts that anyone could ever dream of having. Everything was clean, the food was exceptional and it was great conversation with Ted and Terri. Our room "The Magnolia Suite" was BEAUTIFUL! We stayed the first weekend in January 2013. We could not have thought of a better way to start the new year. We are planning on doing this every year now from now on. It was just such a great way to getaway and RELAX! We did not want to leave the stress free environment. Our first day there I was missing our pooch at home and Irish an 8 year old black Lab greeted us! He was amazing, the best behaved dog that loves to go for walks and play fetch! Each night when we came back there was a roaring fire going in the common room that just made you feel right at home. If you forget wine glasses, bottle openers, a DVD to watch or a board game to play they had you covered. After a long day of wine tasting and touring the area it was just the place to relax and enjoy life. Ted and Terri - we will be back to visit and next time bring friends!!
