We welcome you to our cozy historic home surrounded by nature's tranquil beauty yet only 6 miles from the city lights of downtown Ithaca. We offer two comfortable double bedrooms with private bathrooms and fantastic views and a breakfast menu to choose from, served in our beautiful dining room, cosy porch or on our spacious patio. Our manor is located on 15 acres of certified organic land which is a haven to wild life and bird lovers will be sure to meet a large number of their feathered friends. Electricity is generated by the 56 solar panels in our garden. Cornell University, Ithaca College, Watkins Glen and Trumansburg as well as the Senaca and Cayuga wine trails are all within a 10 mile radius from us. Plenty of activities for all ages: Hikers will enjoy Robert Truman Park with it's stunning Lucifer Falls which is only 11/2 miles from our doorstep whereas the Finger Lakes Trail passes just below our manor. Bring your bikes and kayaks!! Newlyweds might enjoy a romantic sunset cruise on Cayuga or Senaca Lake. Great golfing opportunities! Or, if you just want to chill out and relax on the patio behind our manor and enjoy the stunning views you are just at the right address!! Looking forward to meeting you. Tom and Inez

Beautiful getaway

4.0 on September 19, 2015

Perfect getaway close to home. Beautiful views wherever you look, wherever you walk. 5 minutes from Tremont State Park. Easy drive to Ithaca and Watkins Glen. The owners are very kind, welcoming, and knowledgable about the area. Perfect hosts.

A Truly Great Stay

Inez and Tom are wonderfully friendly hosts and made us feel like family during our 3 night stay. Breakfasts were delicious and varied; artfully presented. The Harriet Tubman suite was extremely well appointed and comfortable. It was quiet, beautiful, and definitely worthy of a return visit.

Great Hotel Alternative

We came up to Ithaca for a weekend stay to visit our son. The Harriet Tubman room was spacious with a private bath. Everything was clean and the views are wonderful. Our hosts were friendly; it was like staying at a friend's country house. Breakfast was cooked to order by selecting from a menu in the evening. Only about 5-6 miles from downtown Ithaca and only a mile form Robert Treman Park. We have always stayed at one of the Ithaca hotel chains and overpaid for small outdated rooms with poor service.Never again.

Great stay!!

Had a great stay here with Tom and Inez, they went out of our way to make us feel welcome. Beautiful views, lots of peace and quiet; convenient to Ithaca, Watkins Glen, the Finger Lakes wineries, and many other parks and sites. Away from the city lights so the stars are amazing. I'll stay there again whenever I'm in the area.

New B&B in Ithaca New York

4.8 on May 31, 2015

Enfield Manor is run by Inez and Tom, a pleasant couple with good eclectic taste in music, especially jazz. The house is an old farm house, recently renovated and incredibly clean; It is located on a quiet back road, but was easy to find. Our room was light and airy and the bed quite comfortable. Breakfast was a great treat and a little unusual in our experience. Most places serve whatever, usually deliciously decadent, dish they are making that morning. But Tom cooks to orders placed the night before. Depending on the season and weather, breakfast can be served in the dining room, on the porch, or on the soon to be completed patio. Interesting items, for an engineer at least, are the solar power system and the toilets with two flush settings.

Another perfect stay!

My husband and I have just returned from our third stay at Enfield, and again, were greeted warmly by Tom and Inez (and Golden Retrievers Sally and Floyd...not to be missed!). We felt pampered by their good attention to detail and friendliness in their lovely, immaculate, tastefully decorated home. We love the crisp simplicity and comfort of the Harriet Tubman Room, and the beauty of the tiled bathroom. We had wonderful conversation over a yummy breakfast, with wonderful coffee and teas, and felt free to relax afterward in their comfortable living room while the snow fell outside (yes, in April). What a wonderful, friendly, place! We cannot wait to see what Tom and Inez create as they add to this already special place! How happy we are to have found this gem of a B and B!

A lovely bed and breakfast in Ithaca

5 on January 10, 2015

We just returned from our second stay at Enfield Manor. The home is lovely and the guest rooms are newly remodeled and spotlessly clean. Inez and Tom are very friendly and helpful but will respect your privacy. The location is convenient for sightseeing and visiting the Cornell campus. The next time that we visit Ithaca, we will stay here again!

Outstanding Value near Ithaca

5 on November 10, 2014

Inez and Tom were wonderfully accommodating to our visit. We were coming in late and they called us during the drive to provide alternative directions due to a recent road hazard. The rooms are beautiful, airy and very comfortable. The breakfast was made to order, the coffee was strong and the tea selection was excellent. Inez and Tom are a lovely couple. They are enthusiastic and interested. Tom helped us map out bike ride in the area and then provided a dry spot for our tandem to dry out. Inez was happy to chat about the area and their new bed and breakfast..

A peaceful stay between Watkins Glen & Ithaca

5 on November 02, 2014

My husband and I were looking for simple three night accommodations in the country for a mini honeymoon. We got just that with the very friendly and helpful Inez and Tom at their charming home in Enfield conveniently situated between Ithaca and Watkins Glen Park. Impeccably clean and handsomely furnished, one can tell that this house is well cared for. We particularly appreciated being greeted downstairs with some lovely music every morning and our breakfast of choice (you get to pick from a handful of options). We got to stay in both rooms since the Harriet Tubman suite was not available the first day of our stay. The HT suite was sweet: spacious yet comfy and with a great view, an ensuite and a large comfy bed. For us, this simple accommodation with kind folks was... simply perfect.

Innkeeper Response
Dear R & A. Many thanks for your encouraging review! We have been in operation now for 3 months and have thoroughly enjoyed having people like yourselves stay with us. So many guests arrived as strangers and left as friends! It is giving a new purpose and dimension to our lives and we are glad that we can offer guests a home away from home where they can unwind and enjoy our beautiful surroundings! We will continue to develop the manor; A large new patio/deck area will enable us to offer breakfast outside next year! We wish you all the best and hope that we will meet again some time. Regards, Inez and Tom

One of the Best Bed and Breakfast Experiences I've had !

5 on August 22, 2014

The Enfield Manor is an exceptional B&B with clean comfortable rooms, a wonderful host, great breakfast and a peaceful scenic setting. My fiancé and I found the Enfield to be one of the most excellently decorated and comfortable places we have stayed in. There were no sagging beds, old bedding, carpeted floors or overabundance of knick-knacks. This B&B was very elegant and lovely as was the hostess Inez. If you are looking for a beautiful and intimate place with character, charm and vibrancy the Enfield is a wonderful stay. The house itself has a swell history, please ask Inez about the rooms and their meaning, she was thoughtful and sincere and it showed in her manner toward guests. My fiancé and I were looking for a place that would offer a great experience and we found it at the Enfield.
