A lovely respite

Such a delightful stay at Hummingbird's Home in Skaneateles. Just a little over a mile from town makes it a convenient spot to perch for a night or more. Very quiet and lovely back yard in which to sit and enjoy the surroundings. A delicious gourmet breakfast greeted me each morning!

A very pleasant experience

Our stay at Hummingbirds Home was very satisfactory. Sabina was welcoming, and flexible about check-in (we wanted to work in a boat ride on the Lake first). Our room was comfortable and the sheets were luxurious. Breakfast was excellent as well. Central air conditioning was an unexpected benefit, especially on such a hot day. Highly recommend Hummingbirds Home.

Hummingbirds Home B & B and more

3.4 on August 08, 2016

We had a warm welcome upon arrival. This is the second time we were at this B & B in a short period of time; as our daughter attends camp near by. On our first stay, I was terribly lost and the Innkeeper telephoned me to make sure all was okay. Our room was small, but the furniture was strategically placed to make it comfortable and useable. The room was very clean. Both stays, were last minute reservations. The Innkeeper is quite knowledgeable about the area and restaurants. The price and the B & B met our needs and we typically travel quite a deal.

Great place to visit with friends

Owner was wonderful and went out of her way to make our stay comfortable. Breakfast was great, with attention to detail. Our food preferences were asked ahead of time, as well. Room was big and clean. We were able to visit with friends in the room or in the downstairs parlor very comfortably. Price was reasonable and overall it was a terrific place to be.

The perfect tiny room

My stay at Hummingbird was delightful. I was able to snag the last room, which was tiny but well proportioned with twin beds and other furniture that made the room utilizable. The Inn Keeper was very helpful in directions and recommendations for local restaurants and other places that I needed to drive to. Very clean, good breakfast and pleasant. I would stay here again.

Very Personable. Like going home to family.

It was quiet as I stayed in the middle of the week. I was given everything I needed. The next morning I had the most wonderful conversation with the owner and we shared a lot of life stories. I had dietary restrictions and the owner took care of me as if I were her best friend or daughter. I left feeling that if I were to go back, she would be "family". Beautiful historic house, lovingly restored by the owner.

Lovely stay for a girl's weekend

We stayed for two nights in May of 2016. Sabina greeted us warmly and was very helpful with information about local attractions and various things to do. The Sweet Pea Room was very cozy and inviting. The bathroom had all the toiletries we needed in case we forgot anything. The decor in both the room and the whole house was homey and comfortable - not too fussy or frilly and not too austere. Check-in was a breeze. Breakfast was a delight! Sabina does all the cooking. We were greeted each morning in the dining room with a table set with china and fresh fruit, and a second hot course followed with a pot of tea. One day was cinnamon French toast with stewed apples and one day was Eggs in Purgatory and banana-chocolate chip muffins. It's not too far from town, and it's relaxing and quiet. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone coming to Skaneateles!

Birthday getaway!!!!

We had a wonderful stay at Hummingbird's Home!!! They were incredibly accommodating and fabulously friendly!! It was an amazing weekend away and we'd gladly return!!! One of the most memorable part of the experiences was the time we spent getting to know our hostess.

Will be back
