Very personable hosts and impeccable facility! It is clear that Don and Priscilla have poured their hearts into the detail and functioning of this bed and breakfast! Will definitely recommend this to others and hopefully return soon.

The only place to stay while in Penn Yan

5 on June 30, 2014

My wife and I just left Tudor Hall yesterday, after our seventh visit in seven years to this very special B&B. There really aren't enough superlatives to describe Tudor Hall and the owners (Priscilla and Don Erickson.) We consider Tudor Hall to be a little slice of heaven on earth, which we have been blessed to enjoy many nights over the last several years. We always stay in the King Edward's Lakeside Country Cottage, which is an incredible value considering you get a private kitchen in addition to the bedroom and bathroom. It's almost like a small apartment, but with the warmth of a well-appointed B&B room. Tudor Hall also has a beautiful location, literally just steps from Keuka Lake. Priscilla's breakfasts are always delicious too. But, the best thing about this B&B is Don and Priscilla. They are the sweetest and most genuine people you could ever meet. They truly make us feel like we are old friends each time we come back to stay at their lovely home. We consider them friends in return. There could be 100 new B&B's on Keuka Lake in the future, but we will go back to Tudor Hall every year Don and Priscilla keep it open as a B&B. We could not recommend Tudor Hall highly enough to those wanting the best B&B experience money can buy. Karen & David Kunert Aurora, IL


Unbelievable - cannot wait to go back :)

This was our first time at a B&B and didn't know what to expect. Wow .... What an amazing experience we had. The hosts, Don and Priscilla were fantastic! Their home and property are phenomenal with accommodations that far surpassed our expectations. They are very gracious, personable, and attentive and will make sure that you have the best possible stay while you are there. The candle lit breakfasts that they serve are absolutely delicious and the presentation is like none other. S'mores by a bonfire beside the lake in the evening :) Serene walks in the morning. The grounds are gorgeous and the lake breathtaking. The royal suite is fabulous with a private balcony and several windows overlooking the lake. No need to draw the blinds at night! This makes going to sleep and waking up in the morning exceptional as you hear the soothing sound of the waves hitting the shore and wake to wonderful sunrises. Nothing more peaceful! We did not want to leave and cannot wait to go back! This is well worth the trip. Thank you, Don and Priscilla for opening up your home to us and to all of the other guests that visit your fabulous "slice of heaven"... You are offering a spectacular service. We had a fantastic weekend, Dan and Donna :)


The Perfect Mini-Vacation

4.8 on October 30, 2013

I was looking for the perfect spot to celebrate a special occasion, my wife's___th birthday. (Self preservation prevents me from saying which one). Anyhow, we found the perfect spot, Tudor Hall. Don and Priscila greeted us warmly upon arrival and their attentive concern for our comfort and satisfaction continued throughout our 4 day stay. Our accomodations were outstanding with our door leading us to the nearby shore. The hot tub was steps away on the grassy beach and canoes were available for those so inclined. We did not swim in the lake beause the air was a bit on the cool side during our October stay. We are seriously considering a return visit during the warmer weather next year. Last but not least, the four breakfasts we enjoyed were imaginative with pleasant surprises each day. Don and Priscilla are very familiar with the area and we enjoyed visits to the Glen Curtiss Museum, local wineries and restaurants as well as lovely drives in the Finger Lakes area. Top grades to Tudor Hall and its owners, Don & Priscilla!


Visit every fall!

We have visited this lovely spot for several years on my birthday weekend the end of September. Don and Priscilla are gracious hosts. We have stayed in 2 of the 3 rooms and they are always immaculate. The breakfasts are delicious and we enjoy the wonderful view from the dining room and chatting with other guests. We keep coming back to this spot because there is so much to do. We bring our kayaks and bikes. Several great bike rides-around the bluff, Skyline Drive from village to bluff and around Keuka Lake. We've done them all. We also enjoy antiquing, wine touring and fine dining. If you are looking for a beautiful, quiet getaway with excellent hosts and food-this is it!!


Great B&B

5 on October 13, 2013

My husband and I can't stop telling everyone about your Tudor Hall B&B. We have been to numerous B&B's over the years, but yours was by far our most enjoyable. It was like being at home. Don and Priscilla are the best innkeepers. The food and interaction with the other guests felt like being with old friends. Our only regret is that we didn't get to spend more time there. Pat and Tom


Two days to remember

Can't wait to return

What a great find! I love the access to the water and the quietness of the location. The innkeepers are very sweet, very attentive and pay excellent attention to each detail. And they make a very fine breakfast! We stayed in the Royal Suite because we loved the balcony large enough to sit out on and because I love jacuzzis! My husband fished before breakfast using their boats but they also have kayaks. I soak ed in the tub. The balcony was wonderful for star gazing too! We uncorked a bottle of a Finger Lakes wine we selected during our wine tour and just enjoyed the view and the quiet. If you are looking to go out dining and bopping around town, understand that excellent restaurants are not close by but the restaurant currently at Esperanza Mansion is good to very good. It is more casual than one might expect from the site but the Finger Lakes region is casual in general. I love that but some other visitors expect differently. The village of Penn Yan is not exactly a tourist attraction nor are the restaurants we've tried over time much to get excited about. The wineries are great though!


wonderful stay

4.6 on September 03, 2013

We enjoyed the peaceful and hospitable time during our stay. The host and hostess were very knowledgeable about the area. You could tell how much they love the area. Everything went smoothly. Would visit again should the opportunity allow. Would recommend to friends and family.
