Charming B&B

5 on May 21, 2015

Very good


Lovely Stay at Hummingbirds B&B

4.2 on April 29, 2015

My sister and I treated my mother to a weekend getaway in Skaneateles the last weekend in April. We choose Hummingbirds Bed and Breakfast based on their off-season pricing, reviews and proximity to the town. When we pulled in we were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful home and well-kept grounds. As we were walking up to the front door, their adorable dog Jogi greeted us; he was so happy to see us and was our little welcome committee! Sabina met us at the door, checked us in and showed us to our rooms. My mother stayed in the Lilac room which was very spacious! My sister and I stayed in the Sweet Pea room which was perfect for us. Everything was very clean and neat. We went about our day/night shopping, wine tasting and enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Rosalie’s Cucina. When we returned to Hummingbirds later that night, we all hung out in my Mother’s room drinking wine, eating dessert and talking. In the morning Sabina cooked us a tasty breakfast: eggs Florentine, muffins, toast and fresh fruit. The coffee was delicious too! Sabina was so friendly and accommodating. We would definitely recommend Hummingbirds Home Bed and Breakfast to anyone visiting Skaneateles!

We decided to stay over night in Skaneateles. After looking at several bread bed-and-breakfast I chose Hummingbird's Home. When we arrived, I realized that I it made a mistake in reviewing my map and it was not walking distance to town. Upon meeting Sabina, we found her very cordial and accommodating. Our room was as shown on the website. Sabina gave us some information regarding dinner that evening which we found helpful. Overall we found the bed-and-breakfast to be of good quality. There were a couple of things that you may want to understand. First is we were on the first floor with windows facing the road and the traffic noise was a little loud.I also went to get some ice and found there was only two small trays in the refrigerator that we were using and both were empty just had water in them and that was only one other couple staying the night.The last thing that I would consider is there was nothing available to drink other than tapwater.

Sabina was a gracious and welcoming host who ensured that our entire family's needs were met. She guided us to some of the most wonderful attractions in the local area. Breakfasts were delicious and she was more than willing to accomodate our dietary preferences. The charming home was clean and comforting!


Immaculate B&B minutes from town

4.8 on September 04, 2014

Our family was looking for resonable lodging close to town for a weekend long Labor Day wedding. For the mere price of a budget motel, we stayed in a charming, spottless guest house minutes down the road from the hustle of town. My parents stayed in the Magnolia room and we stayed in the Lilac room. Both had really cute electric fireplaces that added character without heat. Decorated with antiques and interesting artwork, there were loving touches everywhere. Our host, Sabina, was gracious and welcoming. Her table was set each day with old world china and serving pieces, to accompany the cooked from scratch, made with love, breakfast. She was eager to accomidate our dietary preferences. On our final morning, we left, said goodbye and when we arrived at our family brunch destination, i walked in to see Sabina standing there. I couldnt inagine what she was doing there...I had left my cell phone in the room and she had paid attention to where I had mentioned that we were having brunch...she came straight over to the restaurant knowing that I would have otherwise left the Finger Lakes without my phone. That clearly seems to be in her nature...to go the extra mile for her guests. Lisa and Lee Moldowsky Westbury, NY
