Weekend away from Studying

4.8 on November 03, 2015

My boyfriend and I wanted to get away and see a new place. We had heard the finger lakes were incredible and needed a nice place to stay for a good price since we are struggling college students. John and Tony were extremely welcoming and funny! We really enjoyed the accommodations and the very filling breakfasts each morning. They provided a wide variety of pamphlets with things to do and even told us of the best wineries and breweries to visit. We would highly recommend this bed & breakfast for anyone who wants a quiet weekend away.


very comfortable

Tucked away from the highway and out of view is this nice B&B which is quiet and charming. Room was spacious (Yellow Room) and breakfast was very good. Liked having coffee on the front porch in the morning. Nice to have use of a refrigerator to store the cheese we had bought along the way.

Outstanding B and B in Seneca Falls

Tony and John are wonderful and welcoming hosts and prepare super breakfasts. We really enjoy bird watching off their screened-in porch or having cocktails around the pool. The rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated with lots of character.

Innkeeper Response
Summer flew by much too fast. We've just closed the pool for the season and are gearing up for guests visiting the area to admire the beautiful fall foliage and partake in the wonderful events on the Cayuga and Seneca Lake wine trails. Thank you for your very kind review and we hope to see you again!

We are repeat customers - always staying at John Morris when we visit our friend Dr. John & Fran Clark, long-time residents of Seneca Falls. It has an historic character, is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean with a wonderful perennial garden and a resort-quality swimming pool. We love the owners Tony & John who always greet us with genuine warmth. The breakfast is always delicious and served in the old style in a well furnished/decorated dining room. Love this place!


Fantastic B & B

5 on June 08, 2015

I've only stayed in a few bed and breakfasts in our lifetime and wasn't sure what to expect. The John Morris Manor bed and breakfast was perfect for my husband and myself. The rooms and bathroom were nicely sized and very clean. The grounds and gardens were beautiful and the nights are very quiet. Absolutely loved the view from the front porch. The pool was large and inviting; however we were too busy to use it. They also had a nice fire ring outside that we did not take advantage of. The food was absolutely delicious. The daily breakfasts were the highlight. Large portions, delicious and ever changing. Tony takes pride in his cooking and it shows. Bender and bear are very cute dogs and well behaved. Overall.....our stay was perfect. Thank you!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words. You make us feel proud and happy that our home is welcoming, that Tony's breakfasts are appreciated, and that Bender and Bear don't get under your skin. We truly enjoyed your company and look forward to future visits.


Charming Seneca Falls B&B

5 on June 03, 2015

I stayed at the John Morris Manor Bed and Breakfast with my mother and my dog Ernie on the last stop on a road trip from Los Angeles to Boston. It was a welcome quiet sanctuary. We stayed in the Jetson room which was clean and comfortable and had the most charming wallpaper. Breakfast was delicious, and Tony was a gracious host with great advice on where we could go in town for dinner with the dog in tow. All in all it was a wonderful experience and I would recommend it to anyone traveling through or to the finger lakes region.

Innkeeper Response
You make us blush. We love our visiting canines and their well-behaved owners. It's great to know that you found our home clean and comfortable and that we were able to offer you local information that was helpful. After running the B&B for 12 years, we accumulated a wealth of info on the local wineries, best restaurants, hiking trails, and historical sites. Thank you for the wonderful review.
