Everything about the Yorkshire Inn was Outstanding! From the beauty of the old inn and its surroundings to the wonderful food with professional presentation, Kathe and Doug made us feel like family. Their knowledge of the Finger Lake area provided indispensable suggestions of places to visit. Thanks to both of them, our vacation was most memorable. We will return!

Relaxing place to stay

4.8 on January 24, 2014

1/17/14-1/19/14 stay was our second visit. The location is very convenient for us. Doug and Kathe are very hospitable hosts and we enjoy the time we have to sit and relax over breakfast. The dogs are precious. I would highly recommend the Inn for a base of operation for any low key, relaxing weekend.

Veteran's Day Stay 2013

5 on November 23, 2013

We really appreciated the accommodation offer for Veterans. This was our first stay in an historic inn B&B. Doug and Kathe were great hosts and we enjoyed their company. We had a good dinner in Geneva and the wineries are also close by. The Lodge room was very spacious as was the bathroom. Perhaps a few hooks in the bedroom would help for hanging jackets and such. Overall a good choice for staying in the area.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your recommendation. We plan to add decor appropriate hooks in the near future. We also need to remember to point out to new guests that the wardrobe is for their use.

A Veteran's Appreciation

5 on November 20, 2013

We were hosted by the Latch Family for Veteran's Day 2013. It was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast and it was an awesome experience. Their friendliness, beautiful accommodations yummy(!) food and cute dogs were the highlight of our trip. Our room, bed, bathroom, and all of the common areas were super clean. We felt like honored guests and would recommend anyone to stay here.

Veteran's Day Stay

We want to thank them for making their B & B available to veterans as their gift to those who have served our country. The owners were extremely friendly and made us feel right at home. They were extremely accommodating, even providing cute little dishes for the children who were also staying there. They pointed us to a very nice restaurant for dinner and were informative about the area. We stayed in the lodge, which was very large and roomy. Perhaps a comfy chair could be put in that room for those wanting to sit to read or watch tv. Overall, it was a great experience for us and a place we would gladly recommend or return to.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review. Due to our recent remodel, the Lodge Suite is a new addition to our inn. We are planning to add one or two chairs and a desk to the room. As you noticed, the Lodge Suite has a unique character and we have not yet located the right furniture to compliment the decor.

Wonderful B & B

5 on November 17, 2013

Our first stay at this beautiful inn in Phelps, NY. We were welcomed by the gracious hosts, Doug and Kathe Latch who instantly made us feel right at home. We stayed in the Blue Room which was very comfortable and charming.Did have the opportunity to tour the other rooms and each was very unique and tastefully decorated. Nice country breakfast with wonderful conversation with our hosts.The Yorkshire Inn is just what a country inn should be: welcoming,friendly and comfortable. My husband and I definitely would love to return and would highly recommend this inn to family and friends.

Beautiful B&B in the Finger Lakes Region

5 on November 16, 2013

Stayed for Veteran's Day Weekend, when Doug and Kathe opened up the B&B for free to active duty military and veterans. It also happened to be our anniversary weekend, and we couldn't have picked a better place! Stayed in the Bolero room, which was a private, very romantic room. Kathe provided all-natural, locally-made bath fizzes for the 2-person jacuzzi tub in our private bathroom. The room was clean and very comfortable, if not a little cold (they told us they have since fixed the heating in that room so it's nice and toasty now!). Their two dogs are also excited to see you visit, and drive the "at-home" feeling of the Inn home.The Inn itself is simply beautiful, and Doug and Kathe make it so welcoming and friendly. Plus Doug's breakfast was awesome!! Definitely worth the drive to visit, and will absolutely be keeping them in mind for the future.

Innkeeper Response
Each year we are proud to honor our veterans by providing free rooms. This year we were able to extend the offer to 7 veteran families. The romantic Bolero Room was recently added during our remodel and it features a very quiet, high efficiency HVAC unit. Due to your comments (the following day) we read the manual and discovered that we did not have the system configured properly. In addition, the Bolero Room now features an electric fireplace that compliments the Victorian decor.

Two Thumbs Up!

5 on September 16, 2013

The minute we walked into the house we felt very welcome and at home. Our room was immaculate, very clean and accommodating to anything you would need. The breakfast was perfection, especially Kathe's cheese pastries with spiced apples. Also we were lucky enough to share some time with Doug and Kathe during breakfast and before we left. They are an amazingly knowledgable couple and we would come back just to talk with them. We will be staying there on our next trip to the Finger Lakes. Thanks! Audry&Adam

A Must Stay

Really enjoyed our stay. Very accommodating.

What a find!!!

5 on December 02, 2012

We stumbled upon this listing while searching for a place to stay for Seneca Lake's "Deck the Halls" and we couldn't be happier! It was the first time we were reserving a room with our son, daughter-in-law and daughter and we weren't sure what to expect. Everything about this place was wonderful. The owners couldn't be more welcoming and hospitable. The adorable friendly dogs were such a pleasant addition! The accommodations were just lovely, clean and very comfortable! We were even able to manage with one bathroom with no problem :)! And about the was absolutely delicious both mornings! We were treated with such warmth, we felt like royalty. We can't wait to go back and we've already told many of our friends and family to stay here when they're in the area. We'll definitely stay here next year and are looking for an excuse to come back this summer!!!! Thank you Doug, Kathe & Chris!!!! We feel like we've made new friends! Maria, Norm, Charlie, Noelle and Andi Wahl
