Cozy Winter Getaway

5 on June 03, 2013

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.

Fantastic Weekend Experience

5 on September 29, 2012

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.

The escape from everything

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of service and attention to detail that went into our stay. Rose was exceptionally delightful and took care of everything for us making our stay stress free. Would highly recommend this B & B. We will be going back.

Perfect in every way

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.

Wonderful experience

Roman and Rose have done a wonderful job in their B&B. We had a great time. See you again sometime!

Well worth your time and money

My girlfriend and I recently spent a lovely weekend at the Gothic Eves. Our room was beautiful, the breakfasts we had were out of this world and the service and friendliness of the owners was highly appreciated. I highly recommend you stay here!

Cozy & Satisfying

4.6 on November 24, 2010

Very welcoming hosts without intrusiveness. Excellent breakfasts w/ a local emphasis. Oh, & the wood fired outdoor hot tub was a treat. The Falls at Naugatuck are spectacular & less than a mile down the road. Other than that not too many sights nearby. Not far from the wine trail & very close to the town of Ithaca which was a mixed bag of counter -culture & blue collar. An interesting stop on our trip & one we would not hesitate to repeat if just to experience the Inn's laid back graciousness.

Perfect Place to Relax

The house was very inviting and Rose and Roman were just wonderful hosts! My husband and I looked in every room and decided that it didn't matter which room we stayed in, we just wanted to come back! The breakfasts were amazing especially sitting around the fireplace. I can't wait until next year when we come and stay at The Inn at Gothic Eves.

Simply a pleasure!

The inn was beautiful, Rose and Roman are the best hosts! They are extremely accomodating and helpful. We really felt both pampered and at home. Some of the best breakfasts we've ever had. The leek and swiss omelet was out of this world! We will definitely be back!

Wonderful, elegant inn

4.6 on October 26, 2010

This is just a beautiful inn. Our room, the Bordeaux Suite, was large and elegant with a very, very comfortable king bed. All in all, a great value and a wonderful place to stay. Rose and Roman are very gracious and welcoming.
