The B&B was a fantastic place for our first B&B experience. The room was spacious and very clean, we even had a sitting room that overlooked the lake. The breakfast was delicious and Linda was so acoomdating. We will definitely be back!

We spent the weekend at Onanda and had a wonderful time. The room was very comfortable. The hostess was very friendly. Breakfast was fabulous The views from the front porch and from our room were great. If I had to find one negative it might be that it is a little remote from everything else. But that also adds to the quietness.

Very enjoyable

We celebrated our anniversary in Finger Lakes and enjoyed every minute. Our Lake room was comfortable and sitting room was inviting. Our host Linda was a very friendly and informative giving us ideas to local attractions (wine tours). We had a invigorating walk on the property and spotted deer in the back yard. A return visit a must.

Great stay

Our lake view room included a wonderful sitting area, comfortable bed, and luxurious towels. Fresh cookies on arrival and an excellent dinner suggestion further added o the pleasant experience. Thanks Linda, for preparing a sack breakfast for us because of our early departure. Wish we could have stayed longer to enjoy all the amenities.

Lovely day and night

We stayed in the 'Garden room' there, and had a wonderful sleep, luxurious bath, and a fabulous breakfast, all in the setting of a charming English style home. We took a walk to the lake, and had beautiful views of the lake from the house and the porch. We would definitely stay again, preferably for longer than one night!

My husband and I spent two lovely days at Onanda by the Lake. Linda was an excellent host, she was friendly and engaging without being intrusive and gave great advice on places to check out in the area. Her food was sinfully good! Crepes one morning and French toast the next! The room was gorgeous- a nice mix of modern and cottagey. There is plenty to do in the surrounding areas- dining, shopping, wineries, hiking and an excellent concert hall. I would highly recommend staying at Onanda by the Lake!
