Superb Romantic Stay

5 on December 03, 2013

My girlfriend and I decided to take a spur of the moment trip to the finger lakes for some wine tasting and made a surprise reservation the night before we left. From the very beginning of our reservation process we knew this would be an excellent stay. Chuck and Gerry could not have made our stay more pleasant, warm, and inviting. Upon walking in we were greeted by name and given a tour of the beautiful b&b. Our room was not only beautifully decorated it was impeccably clean! The beds and rooms were extremely comfortable and it was all wrapped up in a perfect romantic setting. The breakfasts were beyond compare, as a trained chef Chuck takes a lot of pride in his cooking. This was our first stay at the beakman house but it most certainly will not be our last. We look forward to our future stays!


Beautiful, charming, and delicious!

Wish I Could Give 6 Stars!

My partner and I recently spent two wonderful nights at Beekman House for my birthday. This was our first B&B and I truly believe we have been spoiled for life. The inn is beautiful and immaculate, the food and service are absolutely first class. From the moment we were greeted by our hosts, Chuck and Gerry, we were treated like royalty. My partner requested that I have an in-room massage and they arranged for it to happen. Three course breakfasts prepared skillfully and with love we're amazing. There was a lovely coffee/tea station, snack in the afternoon, regional wines for purchase, and on and on. I had forgotten my makeup remover and lo and behold there it was for me. We stayed in the Royal Room and the king sized bed was comfy and cozy. Even the pillows were great. It is completely obvious that Chuck and Gerry are passionate about what they do. A stay at 1897 Beekman Place is truly a wonderful experience. Don't miss it! Steve & Jo


The best

Actually it was my first stay at a b&b but my best overnight stay anywhere. Breakfasts were nearly priceless. Very clean. Wonderful wonderful hosts. I will be back and I hope to send friends there just to hear the report. Was hard to leave. Really.


Top Notch

5 on October 16, 2013

We stayed at this Bed and Breakfast last weekend and it absolutely exceeded all of my expectations. This was our first experience with a B&B and I have to say that Chuck and Gerry has totally spoiled me for any future innkeepers. I doubt that I will ever find a wonderful experience like this again. The house and rooms are decorated very well and the innkeepers attention to detail is beyond words. Now let me talk about the food!!!! Words don't even begin to to do justice to the scrumptious breakfast that is served to you daily. You will spend the whole day just waiting for breakfast the next morning. His culinary skills are beyond compare. It is regular food with just enough haughtiness to make you feel like royalty. I highly recommend anyone visiting the finger lakes area to stay here as it will only enhance your stay to a beautiful area of the state.


The BEST!

This was my second time staying that Beekman House. I could not imagine staying anywhere else after the wonderful visit my husband and I had in August 2012. This time I came on a girls weekend to the Finger Lakes the first weekend of October 2013 and we rented out three of the rooms. Gerry and Chuck were fabulous hosts and we enjoyed every detail of our visit from the grand breakfasts down to the handmade soap in each bathroom. Can not wait to visit again.


Best B&B I've been to

5 on October 09, 2013

My girlfriends and I went on a weekend trip to the Finger Lakes and stayed here. It was fabulous. The rooms were beautiful and we'll appointed. The food was out of this world and Chuck paid attention to every single detail, down to the garnishment. We even ordered dinner in one evening and ate at the dining room table and we're surprised by homemade cookies for dessert. I'd highly recommend Beekman House and its wonderful owners,


Anniversary to Remember

Outstanding five star worthy breakfast with inn keepers that make you feel like you're staying in a home away from home. Exquisitely preserved Victorian era decor makes this b&b a place to return again and again.


The best bed and breakfast ever. A must go destination

Great food and service. Owners are very nice and willing to help. A great place.


Wonderful 'get-away' experience!

Gerry and Chuck were fantastic hosts! We felt totally 'at home' in their home.....and it's obvious that they love what they are doing. It shows in every little detail in both the home and the incredible food! We'll look forward to visiting again and will 'spread the word' to family and friends about this wonderful get-away in the Finger Lakes!
