An enjoyable visit

5 on September 26, 2016

We arrived at Los Gatos to a warm welcome from Barney and Susan. On a lovely September day we enjoyed sitting on their lovely deck enjoying the view of their gardens. After a comfortable night's rest, we enjoyed a lovely breakfast with homemade syrup and jams. They are the perfect hosts and have a lovely home.


Really nice B&B

Wonderful Finger Lakes retreat with great views, breakfasts and hosts

5 on August 20, 2016

Los Gatos is a wonderful retreat in the centrally located village of Penn Yan. We stayed in the Grand Suite on the 2nd floor that included a separate sitting room with a deck overlooking the grounds and a view towards Seneca Lake that afforded us beautiful sunrise panoramas each morning. Outstanding breakfasts are homemade each morning and are quite delectable ranging from bread for French toast, their own English muffins, blueberry souffle, pancakes, Belgian waffles, homemade syrup, jams and even their own coffee blend. Susan and Burney are salt of the earth folks who work hard to ensure your stay is memorable. They know the area well and can offer tips including off the beaten path locations that are well worth the trip. A great find for sure.


Great place to stay!

Burney and Susan made us feel at home in their home. The Blue Room was quiet with plenty of room and a comfortable bed, we had a great night's rest. The grounds are well maintained and have a great overlook view of the countryside which you can view from a spacious deck at the back of the house. The breakfast was simple and sumptuous.and included homemade fixings from their own garden and grounds.


Keuka Lake Cottage

4.4 on July 17, 2016

We have stayed at Los Gatos before in one of the cabins. This time, since we were traveling with friends we decided to rent the Keuka Cottage. Do not be mislead by the word cottage. This is a lovely 3 bedroom home overlooking the Lake. Burney and Susan have done everything to make the home comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting out on the expansive deck with a glass of wine staring at the lake and reviewing our day. The only thing missing was Burney's breakfast.


Great location in the Finger Lakes

4.8 on July 11, 2016

Located near the top of Keuka Lake this B & B is very inviting, as are your hosts Susan and Burney. Three rooms in the main house plus 2 cabins. We stayed in the grand suite (the entire second floor) with a deck overlooking the yard, which I highly recommend if it's available.The property is spacious with flower and vegetable gardens. At night if the sky is clear enjoy star gazing with Burney, just fabulous! Speaking of fabulous, the 5 star breakfasts will fuel you for your daily adventure.


Homemade Excellence

4.4 on July 08, 2016

Los Gatos offers clean and spacious accommodations in a Penn Yan location that's convenient for exploring the Finger Lakes. What makes this B & B special is the hospitality offered by proprietors Burney and Susan. First of all, our three breakfasts were all memorable! Everything is homemade- scones, jams, waffles, clafoutis,crust less quiche, apple cider syrup, berry granita - and delicious! Susan and Burney offered many helpful suggestions for things to do in the area. In the backyard of their 3 acre property, Burney shared his knowledge of astronomy and his telescope with interested guests. Los Gatos knows how to make their guests feel welcome!


Relaxing setting with friendly service and all around great hosts

4.8 on June 20, 2016

This was our first time traveling to the Finger Lakes region of NY and my wife selected this specific B&B to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary due to the positive reviews. Upon arrival Burney and Susan were very welcoming and immediately made you feel at home. We stayed in the Grand Suite on the second floor which overlooked the relaxing grounds and peaceful gardens of Los Gatos. I suggest getting up to catch the sunrise. The suite accommodations are comfortable and well maintained and most importantly clean. We were both appreciative of the knowledge of the area that they shared and the pointers that they provided. Words cannot due justice to the scrumptious breakfast served sharply at 9 a.m. and the freshness of the blended juices and home made jams. The location of this B&B is conveniently located so that one can explore wineries, eateries, and other attractions near both Keuka and Seneca Lakes. We loved our stay!


“Beautiful setting, tasteful room, excellent hospitality, easy access to Keuka Lake”

5 on June 02, 2016

Stayed in the Sage room at this lovely B&B outside of town. The room is nicely arranged, very clean and very comfortable. The common rooms are great - we enjoyed eating breakfast in the enclosed porch with the sun shining into the room and sitting on the large deck taking in the view and the chattering birds. We saw a gobbler turkey strutting for some hens and a handful of white tail deer feeding in the back of the field in the evening. At night we played games on the porch with the TV on in the background. If we had already visited the wineries, we could have used the ample glassware they have. Burney and Susan are very friendlyand accommodating. They had great suggestions for which wineries and breweries to visit and where to get lunch. Burney is an excellent breakfast cook. When we returned to the B&B near the end of the day after visiting wineries, Burney and Susan came out of the side of the house where they had been working to greet us with a friendly hello and to ask about our day - such a nice touch!


Awesome Getaway!

Great views, excellent hospitality. We stayed in the Casa Verde cabin and it was gorgeous! The food was excellent too. Will definitely be back!
