Great Place to Stay

5 on July 25, 2014

My daughter booked us into Barrister's a year before our trip. We loved the look on the web page and we were not disappointed. Ken & Diane are wonderful B&B owners and I wish all were like them. We had great breakfasts, fantastic rooms, and excellent conversations with Ken & Diane and the other guests. if we are ever in the area again, we will be staying with Ken & Diane. Thank You! Denise & Sandra

Great B&B

We stayed here one night in July of 2013. Called from the road and they had a cancellation. It was the smallest room they had but it was beautiful. Ken and Diane were wonderful hosts. Breakfast in the morning was gourmet! Diane had all sorts of coupons for free wine tasting in the region. We will definitely return.

Best B&B

We have stayed at Barrister's several times, and continue to find it an exceptional experience. The rooms are gorgeous, and the Innkeepers are wonderful! The gourmet breakfast fills us up and holds us over all through our travel day. We've already reserved our rooms for next fall!

Best Place to Stay in the Finger Lakes Region

Breakfasts were wonderful and were accommodating to my allergies. Our hosts provided wonderful information about the area based on our conversations. The Barrister was quiet, clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this b&b as your base for exploration of the region.

Loved our stay in Barrister's bed and breakfast. It's in great location, close to both the famous lakes. The hosts Diane and Ken were excellent. Diane helped us plan our 2 days in fingerlakes and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Breakfast was very delicious too. We will definitely come back and stay here whenever we visit Fingerlakes again!

Great Stay!

We just spent two nights and 3 days at Barrister's and I must say they out done themselves. Where else can you met 3 other couple from all over the world perfect strangers and the day we are checking out we are all hugging one another exchanging emails etc. So beautiful is the home so cozy so clean neat so warm and friendly. Diane and Ken make you feel right away like family. Breakfast is absolutely fabulous and I love the way they explain what we are about to eat. If you go away hunger it is your own fault. Truly a relaxing and peaceful way to spend some time away from home as they make it your home away from home. Truly.

Comfortable, beautiful bed and breakfast

This is a lovely bed and breakfast with beautiful, comfortable rooms. The jet bath in the "Grandmother's Room" is wonderful. The breakfasts are delicious and the hosts, Diane and Ken, are a warm, helpful, friendly couple. Breakfast is served at 9:00 only, and it would be better if the time were more flexible for those who want an early start. I would definitely recommend this B & B to everyone and would stay there again.

Mr. and Mrs. McConnell were gracious hosts!! Everything was warm, inviting and immaculate. We had to leave early in the morning so they fixed me a goody bag for the road!! above and beyond service. A true home away from home. Thanks again for a lovely stay. Mark and Tammie Michigan 8-2013
