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.

Honeymoon Stay

3.4 on April 30, 2015

We stayed here on our honeymoon and we visited several wineries in the area. Both Tony and John were very personable. They had chilled champagne waiting for us upon our arrival. Tony was helpful in giving us suggestions of places in the area to visit. The homemade cookies were delicious too. Thank you for making our honeymoon a very special one.


Wonderful Experience

It was our first experience staying in a Bed and Breakfast. I would definitely recommend it. We met wonderful couples to share stories with during breakfast.. John and Tony were super hosts. Very friendly and warm.


Our Honeymoon

5 on October 30, 2014

We had the most relaxing time at the John Morris Manor. It happened that we were married on the same date as Tony and John, one year later. Both delightful, charming and excellent hosts. The breakfast was second to none and the room was more than comfortable. Tony made excellent recommendations for dinners and sights to see. Bender and Bear, their dogs, were well behaved and cuter than cute, especially when trying to beg a bit of breakfast. We will stay with them again next year. CAN"T WAIT!!

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!
