I had a wonderful stay at VanCleef Homestead Bed & Breakfast in Seneca Falls, NY. From the moment I stepped through the doors on a cool November afternoon, Carol, the innkeeper was there to make me feel right at home. My room on the first floor had a comfy bed and a large claw foot tub--both of which I enjoyed! The inn had a great room with a piano, books and games. Breakfast was exceptional--if you get a chance to try Carol's baked french toast, jump at it. I was lucky enough to have Carol join me for coffee and conversation and I learned about the town and so much more from her. It was really enjoyable. The location was also terrific. It was a five minute drive to the Women's Right's Historical Site and the restaurants and shops nearby. On a pretty day, it would be a nice walk. It was also just a short drive from the Seneca wine trail. I can't say enough good things about this experience. Should I find myself in Seneca Falls again, I will be staying here!

My wife and I had an excellent weekend celebrating our 20th anniversary. We stayed in the main floor room with attached private bath. The room was very clean and comfortable. Carol was very attentive to our needs and went above and beyond to ensure a memorable weekend. Breakfast each morning was delicious and plentiful. Would definitely recommend VanCleef Homestead to others. We hope to return next fall.

Carol is a very good host and cooked a great breakfast. She also gave us very useful tips for exploring the Finger Lakes Area. Our room was very nice and comfortable and had a large bathroom.
We sincerely enjoy sharing our home in this lovely little town, and it is always a pleasure to make suggestions to our guests on what to do and see in this beautiful area of the Finger Lakes. Thank you to all who appreciate what we have to offer!

Baked French Toast
French Toast made with Amish homemade bread, baked with fresh fruit, such as blueberries, apples, or peaches. Our guests have told us we should find another name for this dish, as the term "French Toast" doesn't do it justice!
