Wicher Bed & Breakfast.

A Beautiful Home, friendly hosts. Very knowledgeable about the local area, restaurants, etc.

Very congenial owners, excellent breakfast

Gail and Gary were very welcoming hosts and each morning provided a very full, delicious breakfast, each day a different menu. My room, though small, was clean and comfortable, and the various porches throughout were inviting and relaxing. The B&B is located close enough to the towns in the area as well as to some very good restaurants, beautiful state parks and wineries. As it's close to the road, one does hear traffic, but it never was disturbing enough to interfere with sleep. Gail and Gary were always very helpful doling out suggestions and information on the area. For me this was a very pleasant stay in every way, and I would definitely come back.

"Honey, I'm Home"

Have stayed here many times and left with many great memories. It does feel like home. Love the rocking chairs on the porch to sit, talk and enjoy good wine. Gail's breakfasts are as creative as her attention to decorative detail throughout. Gary's engaging conversations about all the local "goings on" are ripe for publishing. Just hate leaving (especially saying good-by to GG this time) and always looking forward to staying. Pat - San Diego.

An outstanding experience in beautiful setting.

We stayed in the Rose room and found it to be very comfortable. The whirlpool bath and shower was a welcome addition at the end of a strenuous day. Our innkeepers were attentive and helpful and the breakfast fare was excellent in every way. We would definitely stay here again.

My fiancé and I had a beautiful stay. The scenery was beautiful, the room was amazing and so romantic, and the service provided was outstanding. We will absolutely be returning again and again and will definitely recommend this b&b to friends and family. Thank you to Gary and Gail for superb and outstanding service, and absolutely delicious breakfast!!!

Pet Friendly and Great Location

We loved this farmhouse bed and breakfast, a perfect place to return to after a full day in Montezuma Wildlife Refuge. While pet friendly, you would never know that an animal may have stayed in your room previously and the hosts really do a nice job of making you feel welcome. We would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone heading out to the Finger Lakes or passing through on their way across New York State.

Quaint B&B not far from the Finger Lake wineries. Our room was spacious. The surroundings were quiet- we were able to sleep in and awaken to bird song.

Our stay was very pleasant. The hosts made us feel very welcome and comfortable. We had one of two rooms of the second floor with a large covered deck. Very nice!

First time B & B

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised as we had never stayed at a Bed & Breakfast. Our hosts were wonderful and made us feel right at home. They recommended dinner dining options and even made our reservations. Lovely property and look forward to traveling back to the area and seeing more of the local historical sights. Breakfast was delicious!
