David Orville Trimmer built Trimmer House for his wife and daughters in 1891. D.O. Trimmer was a wealthy wine merchant specializing in champagne. No expense was spared in restoring this fine example of Queen Anne architecture. What better way to visit the Finger Lakes Wine Region than by staying at this Historic Bed & Breakfast! Proprietor Gary M. Smith, Professor of Hospitality Management at Keuka College, will attend to every detail. Elegant 1891 Queen Anne Victorian situated in historic downtown. Seven spacious guest-rooms with private baths including a suite and adjacent guesthouse. Attentive hospitality, period furnishings and a full gourmet breakfast await your arrival.

This is an immaculate property. The home has been restored beautifully. Attention to detail in addressing guests comfort was just amazing. Breakfast was served at 8:30 but coffee/tea was available at 7:30am. Buffet breakfast included a frittata, pancakes, bacon, fruit and scone. Very good and quite filling. Off street parking is available. We only stayed the one night but would strongly recommend to others. It also has a great front porch to relax on. While we normally stay in Watkins Glenn during our visits to the Finger Lakes, this is a very short drive away and well worth it in comparison to the BB's in Watkins Glenn.

This was our first B+B experience. It was great, we will be back! We stayed during the week due to our anniversary date, next time we are going to try a weekend so we can meet other guest! Our hosts were more than accommodating.

We have been here several times over the last few years, and are looking forward to a 2015 trip. Gary and Yang are great hosts and provide each guest with a beautiful home during their stay. Incredibly friendly and helpful with tips on the area. Great location and immaculate home! I can't say enough about the Trimmer House B and B, I'm so happy we discovered it for our wineries trips!!

There were five of us on a Finger Lakes early May hiking/site-seeing tour, and we had a wonderful stay for 3 days and nights. The meals, the rooms, Gary's (the innkeeper), knowledge of the area, the front porch, and the setting were all great. In fact, I will be returning. People from the city would be attracted to the comforts, the porches, the peacefulness and security, etc. Gary and Yang do a fantastic job!

We were not sure of our arrival time in town and when we drove that evening and called around, the proprietor welcomed us and said she would be right there to let us in and get settled. From the moment we walked in she showed us their home; took care of us and made us quite at home. We loved our upstairs suite; very warm, quiet, cozy, claw foot tub; lovely and comfortable (comfortable cotton robes and slippers). She checked with us to ensure we had the breakfast we needed before we headed out by bicycle. She also helped us with a good safe place for our bike. Breakfast was complete and delicious. Beverages were always available; small refrigerator available too. We were so tired from our ride by the time we arrived she helped us with a recommendation for take out and provided us dinner ware to eat. We really enjoyed the segment of the house on 'If Walls could talk' which we watched on DVD with a movie from their great dvd collection. The Trimmer was easy to find and in a lovely part of town; beautiful inside and out with special touches like fresh flowers. Parking is convenient in the extra large driveway and place for bicycle. She was knowledgeable about the history of the house and area and excited to help guests. She was genuine in her desire to provide a wonderful guest experience. She asked us what we'd like for breakfast and provided a terrific meal. We would definitely stay again.

The owner stated that she doesn't usually accept gift cards for the Keuka Room. This is not mentioned in any literature. She also complained that the charges from B&B.COM were very high. Another couple at breakfast also mentioned that she made the same comment to them when they paid by gift card. If she has trouble with the charges, she should not mention to paying clients.

The restoration of the property has been done exceptionally well. The rooms are beautiful. We would definitely stay again.

Trimmer House was the perfect romantic escape. An ideal location in wine country, Trimmer House was clean, comfortable and charming. A hearty breakfast was included plus lots of unexpected amenities like WIFI, a hot tub and free movies. The innkeepers were friendly and helpful. The other guests were repeat visitors so that says alot. Great restaurants were just two blocks away.
