Featured in Historic Inns of the Northeast. Located in this quiet rural village is a large, gracious Georgian home, a costly leaded glass windowed porch ornamented with hunting and period scenes, marble fireplaces, period sitting rooms, parquet floors, six sets of french doors, gardens, a gazebo and a pergola. An Epicurean breakfast as would have been enjoyed in 1908 is served in a genteel manner. There is a gift shop with local crafts and antiques on the premises. Wireless available.

Luxurious Breakfast

5 on November 15, 2011

My room was comfy. Breakfast was a time to relax and enjoy the beauty of the room and company of other guests. My gluten free request was acommodated in high style. Thank- you Eva Mae and Frank. Joyce Bolek ( Florida ).

Always an Outstanding Place to Relax

Every other year or so I visit family in the area and stay with Frank and Eva Mae. Outstanding hosts. Elegant home. Relaxing environment. Always leave looking forward to the next visit.

Perfect weekend!

We had a wonderful mini family reunion in the Musgrave's home. It was the perfect setting! Frank and Eva Mae were outsanding hosts, making everyone feel right at ease! We thank them for their wonderful hospitalty and sense of humor!

A Weekend of Relaxation

5 on April 11, 2010

We had a busy weekend planned and the stress levels were high; until we walked into the Edge of Thyme. The stress was gone, we had the best nights sleep we've had in weeks, the breakfast and conversation were top notch (boy can Frank tell a story!!!), and the Edge of Thyme made our weekend!!!

Living on the edge

A lovely place to relax and enjoy while contemplating. Great spot on the edge of the finger lake region to set out from and return to tour the area.

"Once again a memorable stay!"

5 on July 31, 2009

This is the sixth summer that I have stayed with the Musgraves and once again it was memorable and enjoyable. They make you feel like a member of their family from the moment you are greeted at the front door. The meals are always outstanding, the services superb, and the hospitality comforting (including Fred!). I look forward to my stay next year!

A pleasure

If you want to experience the true America there is no better place. All 'three' hosts made you feel most welcome. Paul, Val & Nick

I'll Be Back!!!!

5 on March 16, 2009

I travel quite a bit for work and rarely stay at Bed and Breakfasts. That is about to change if The Edge of Thyme is typical (which I do not think it is). Being here is as close to being home as you can get. Frank, Eva Mae, and Fred made me feel like part of the family.

Many years of enjoyment

We have stayed at the Edge of Thyme for over 20 years. Outstanding hospitality, wonderful breakfasts, and excellent accommodations!

As if you were home, but better!!!

We arrived in the late evening, but Eva Mae and Frank were there to greet us as if we were family. That is how they make you feel. The food was exquisite. It felt like a "special" holiday breakfast every morning. They were ready to meet any request or need. My family lives right there in Candor, whom I usually stay with, but this was an occassion to stay with the Musgraves. I will certainly visit again. Sorry Mom!
