It is very obvious that providing good wholesome food and a comfortable place to stay is a passion and a calling for Cathy. She shops for the freshest, healthiest ingredients and cooks one of the best breakfast I have every enjoyed and I have stayed in a lot of B&Bs. The B&B setting is a very quiet rural enviornment that is ideal for rest and relaxation as well as being centrally located for all of the Finger Lake attractions. If you don't take advantage of the chance to stay here, you will miss out on a rare opportunity for a 1st rate B&B experience. My wife and I were extremely happy we stayed here.

We had a wonderful stay at the 1922 Starkey House B&B. The house was warm and inviting on this cold winter weekend. Cathy was the perfect hostess, welcoming us with open arms, making us feel right at home, and offering great suggestions for local dining. Breakfast was locally-sourced, healthy, homemade, and delicious. We'll definitely be back this summer.

we stayed here for the first time the first weekend in December. The inn is beautiful, the food was incredible and the owner was very helpful and personable. We have stayed at many B&B's and will definitely come back to the Starkey House!

Crisp, thin, and deliciously golden, rolled with cream cheese filling, or berries. These scrumptious delicate pancakes are hand made and can be topped with fresh strawberries, blueberries, or other available fruits from my garden or local farm markets. Crepes can served alone or along with an egg dish of the day. They are especially delicious accompanied by herbal teas or freshly ground and brewed coffee.
