Adda Trimmer House Bed and Breakfast

145 East Main Street , Penn Yan, NY 14527 USA (Show map)


David Orville Trimmer built Trimmer House for his wife and daughters in 1891. D.O. Trimmer was a wealthy wine merchant specializing in champagne. No expense was spared in restoring this fine example of Queen Anne architecture. What better way to visit the Finger Lakes Wine Region than by staying at this Historic Bed & Breakfast! Proprietor Gary M. Smith, Professor of Hospitality Management at Keuka College, will attend to every detail. Elegant 1891 Queen Anne Victorian situated in historic downtown. Seven spacious guest-rooms with private baths including a suite and adjacent guesthouse. Attentive hospitality, period furnishings and a full gourmet breakfast await your arrival.

Absolutely Loved the Trimmer House B&B

5 on August 26, 2017

We only stayed for one night and wish we could have stayed a week! Yang and Gary are the perfect hosts! Our suite was perfect -- very large, two rooms with an outdoor balcony with two rocking chairs -- perfect for morning coffee. Breakfast was great too. The house is beautifully decorated with every necessary amenity. Can't wait to visit again!

Keuka Lake Bliss

5 on July 11, 2017

We stayed at Trimmer House recently while visiting friends on Keuka lake. everything was perfect which meant we could enjoy our visit. The innkeepers have thought of everything and the place was extra clean. They serve a delicious breakfast and accommodate special requests without issue. We would certainly stay there again. Much better than the chain hotel/motel options and it costs less as well.

Excellent Find

This was our first time to the Finger Lakes and we were lucky to find Trimmer House. Everything was perfect and the innkeepers were very helpful with suggestions. The B&B is historic and romantic with lots of nice touches.

Classy and Comfortable B&B

5 on March 27, 2017

We stayed at Trimmer House B&B and found it to exceed our expectations. The rooms were very comfy and clean and the hosts friendly and helpful. Great central location for the wine and beer trails. Stay here if you visit the Keuka Lake area.

Charming B&B Choice

5 on February 17, 2017

We don't normally stay in B&Bs but we decided to try Trimmer House out for a romantic valentines getaway. We would absolutely come back there again. The B&B is very historic but modern. They thought of everything we could want and served a delicious breakfast as well. They are located in town so you can walk to pubs and restaurants. The owners were very interesting and helpful in making suggestions. Put Trimmer House on your to do list if you plan on visiting the Keuka Lake area.

Helpful Hosts

5 on February 02, 2017

We stayed at Trimmer House based on the suggestion of friends who had been there before. We would certainly recommend this B&B. The hosts were very helpful in assisting us in making the most of our visit. They suggested a great restaurant, Ports, and made a reservation for us. The B&B itself is imppecably kept and they have thought of every comfort you might want. Breakfast was delicious and entertaining. You will not be disappointed with a stay at Trimmer House B&B.

Always Excellent

5 on February 01, 2017

We have stayed at Trimmer House several times over the years as it is one of our favorite B&Bs. It is the perfect location for visiting the Keuka or Seneca Wine Trails. The Inn has a romantic Victorian atmosphere with modern amenities. The Hosts are very knowledgeable about the area and serve up personal hospitality. Bessie's room is one of our favorites as it has a fireplace. Breakfast is delicious accompanied by vintage music from their 100 year old player piano. Always a memorable stay at Trimmer House!

Wonderful vacation

5 on August 26, 2016

We recently stayed at Trimmer House for a 5 day vacation in the Fingerlakes. Yang and Gary were gracious hosts who ensured we were very comfortable (and well fed!) throughout our stay. Their local knowledge helped us find some gems of places to visit that we would otherwise not have known about. And the house is beautiful. Thoroughly recommend.

Attention to detail amazing!

5 on August 22, 2016

This is an immaculate property. The home has been restored beautifully. Attention to detail in addressing guests comfort was just amazing. Breakfast was served at 8:30 but coffee/tea was available at 7:30am. Buffet breakfast included a frittata, pancakes, bacon, fruit and scone. Very good and quite filling. Off street parking is available. We only stayed the one night but would strongly recommend to others. It also has a great front porch to relax on. While we normally stay in Watkins Glenn during our visits to the Finger Lakes, this is a very short drive away and well worth it in comparison to the BB's in Watkins Glenn.

First B+B experience

5 on June 24, 2016

This was our first B+B experience. It was great, we will be back! We stayed during the week due to our anniversary date, next time we are going to try a weekend so we can meet other guest! Our hosts were more than accommodating.
