It was quiet as I stayed in the middle of the week. I was given everything I needed. The next morning I had the most wonderful conversation with the owner and we shared a lot of life stories. I had dietary restrictions and the owner took care of me as if I were her best friend or daughter. I left feeling that if I were to go back, she would be "family". Beautiful historic house, lovingly restored by the owner.

Lovely stay for a girl's weekend

We stayed for two nights in May of 2016. Sabina greeted us warmly and was very helpful with information about local attractions and various things to do. The Sweet Pea Room was very cozy and inviting. The bathroom had all the toiletries we needed in case we forgot anything. The decor in both the room and the whole house was homey and comfortable - not too fussy or frilly and not too austere. Check-in was a breeze. Breakfast was a delight! Sabina does all the cooking. We were greeted each morning in the dining room with a table set with china and fresh fruit, and a second hot course followed with a pot of tea. One day was cinnamon French toast with stewed apples and one day was Eggs in Purgatory and banana-chocolate chip muffins. It's not too far from town, and it's relaxing and quiet. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone coming to Skaneateles!

We had a wonderful stay at Hummingbird's Home!!! They were incredibly accommodating and fabulously friendly!! It was an amazing weekend away and we'd gladly return!!! One of the most memorable part of the experiences was the time we spent getting to know our hostess.

Will be back

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.

Pleasant Stay in Skaneateles
