Private, hilltop, 1837 Greek-Revival manor on 6 acres, with Cayuga Lake access, located on NYS Scenic Route 89 and the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail, with the Seneca Lake Wine Trail a 20 minute drive away. Tony, (Brooklynite), and spouse, John, (Manhattanite via Watkins Glen), and their two dogs migrated to the country over a dozen years ago. Seneca Falls is the birthplace of Women's Rights, so lots of local history to soak up. Comfortable accommodations. Not the Shangri-La, but far from the Gray Gardens. The Pool Room has a working fireplace and Jacuzzi in the private bath. Hearty, country-style breakfasts with local fresh produce; baked goods in the afternoon. Pet-friendly with local dog-friendly parks for you and your canine companion to explore. Love our dogs. Open to all, including infants and we are noted as a safe haven for trans and gender fluid folks. In-ground pool in summer; free Wi-Fi; 50 inch cable TV in parlor. Fab wine and cheese trails, hiking, biking, kayaking, outlet shopping, antiquing, bird watching, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, too! Come check out the gay-friendly Finger Lakes and while you're at it, why not bring along your canine companion and make us your get-away destination in NYS wine country?

Lovely Home!

4.4 on September 16, 2014

I had a lovely two days at this B&B. Tony fed us wonderful breakfast and their home is a great place to relax after a tour of the Finger Lakes. My bedroom was comfortable and clean. The common rooms also provide many comfortable places to read and watch TV. There are dogs which made it even more homey!

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

This is a beautifully maintained quiet B&B in the Finger Lakes managed by two very friendly and accommodating hosts. Breakfast was wonderful, and the room was comfortable and well-appointed. I would definitely come back again!

Warmly welcomed; room - entire B&B - was immaculate and very comfortable; breakfast was a real treat - meal was exceptional and conversation with other guests from Denmark and Spain was great fun. We'll be back!

So very helpful

The owner was so helpful when our schedule caused us to arrive late that he stayed on the phone while we found the driveway in the dark. The breakfast was fresh and hot and wonderful the next morning. Beautiful views.

Wonderful stay in the Finger Lakes with my puppy Ruby!

What a wonderful quirky place, great location, great pool, a can't say enough about the fabulously delicious breakfast. Great mix of people. Informal and the owners really bring a casual elegance that is not forced. I will return!

Bed & Breakfast of Your Dreams

5 on July 28, 2011

What an exceptional Bed & Breakfast! I recommend it most highly. Tony & John, the hosts, were as down-to-earth, friendly, and accommodating as any 2 people can be. I, my friend, & the others staying there enjoyed the pool, the extensive & beautifully landscaped grounds, & spacious parlors for playing games, watching tv, etc. I especially enjoyed sitting on the screened porch watching the many birds at the different kinds of feeders. Tony prepared fantastic breakfasts and accommodated my vegetarianism. The bedrooms were gorgeous & the beds as comfortable as any in which I've ever slept. I slept like a baby. I intend to return to the area for another vacation & Tony's & John's hospitality is part of the reason why. If you're in the Seneca Falls area, I strongly suggest that you stay at this very special place. It's a unique combination of feeling at home and yet being wonderfully taken care of. Enjoy!
