This was our second stay Gothic Eves. The Inn is elegant and so charming. Rose is a delight; she’s friendly, attentive, and professional. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. We love visiting this area and when it came to this trip, it was a no-brainer where to stay. We had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed our time immensely. Rose’s breakfasts are not to be missed! We recommend this inn for anyone who is interested in visiting the Finger Lakes Region or planning a weekend getaway.

My partner and I were looking for a bed and breakfast at which to have a small wedding ceremony, with guests staying on location and activities both on- and offsite. When we visited Gothic Eves and met the owner, Rose, we knew we had the perfect location. The Inn is elegant and perfectly appointed, and Rose is friendly, attentive, and professional. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable and there are a number of amenities on the grounds like a hot tub, fire pit, hammocks, and picnic tables that make for a relaxing atmosphere with a variety of options available. Rose’s breakfasts are not to be missed and wherever possible use fresh, local, organic ingredients. Rose was very helpful in coordinating the event and, as we were unfamiliar with the area, provided creative suggestions and excellent recommendations for caterers, restaurants, and anything else we needed from the region. This allowed us to have a wonderful weekend that all of our family and friends enjoyed immensely. The size and variety of the Inn’s common areas (and careful coordination by Rose and her excellent staff) made it possible for our guests to move from event to event in a unique manner. We recommend this inn for anyone who is interested in visiting the Finger Lakes region, and particularly for anyone looking for an intimate and unique site for an event.

We could not have asked for a better experience. The bedroom is large with a king size bed. Rose is a wonderful hostess and goes to any length to ensure your comfort. The sitting room is equipped with a flat screen TV and fully stocked fridge with complimentary nonalcoholic beverages. There is a front porch swing to wile away the hours. A great place to sit back and relax.

Are you getting close but have to wait another year or more to retire? You may not be able to retire but you can try it on for size. Ask for some time off, vacation midweek like the retirees, enjoy the attention that all restaurants, wineries, parks, museums have to offer without the crowd. Enjoy the sound of everyone getting up in the morning while you lay in bed longer, experience a local organic gourmet breakfast and spend the day leisurely exploring the Finger Lakes. Spend 3 nights, Sunday-Thursday and pay for 2 nights. Enhance your stay with a hot tub soak or a massage. Go home after this vacation and still have your weekend to stay at home with the family. Just a taste of retirement could make waiting more tolerable. Other specials and holidays excluded.
