My husband and I had a rare chance to get away for a weekend for our anniversary. We had only stayed at B&Bs twice before. This B&B is excellent, as it is very close to many activities in the Finger Lakes area. It's located on a quiet street, which was very relaxing. Our hostess was very friendly, helpful, and the breakfast each morning was fresh, plentiful and delicious! Very nice accomodations as well.

My husband and I recently visited the area, and spent one night at the Starkey House. Cathy is a delight and has done a nice job with the Inn. Breakfast was wonderful! Thank you.

Our first bed and breakfast experience was an excellent one! The house is very clean and comfortable and the host Cathy very hospitable. The house is in a perfect location for visiting wineries on Seneca Lake. We enjoyed the absolutely delicious breakfasts and afternoon snacks - everything homemade and featuring herbs from the garden. Cathy is a fabulous cook! We will definitely return on our next trip to the Finger Lakes!

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.
