About

"GREAT PLACE, GREAT BREAKFAST, GREAT HOSTS! Quoted from our guest book. We welcome you to our cozy historic home surrounded by nature's tranquil beauty and stunning views, yet within a 10 mile radius from the city lights of downtown Ithaca, Cornell University, Ithaca College, Watkins Glen and Trumansburg as well as the Senaca and Cayuga WINE TRAILS. Whereas the Finger Lakes Trail runs just below our property, Robert Treman State Park is only 1 1/2 miles from our doorstep. Another 4 State Parks are nearby, all with beautiful waterfalls! We have two comfortable double bedrooms with private, tiled bathrooms in the Manor House as well as a separate, cute, PET FRIENDLY VACATION RENTAL which offers the ideal spot for a romantic get away and is very popular with honeymooners! Air conditioning and fridge space for all rooms is available. We have a breakfast menu to choose from, served in our beautiful dining room, cosy porch or on our spacious patio. Our manor is located on 15 acres of certified organic conservation land and electricity is generated by the 56 solar panels. We are proud to be recognized as a green facility by Tripadvisor and green practices are actively observed. Bring your hiking boots, bikes, kayaks, golf clubs, swim suits and a good book! Or, if you just want to chill out and relax on the patio behind the Manor with a glass of wine purchased from one of the many wineries in our area, you are just at the right address! Looking forward to meeting you. Tom and Inez

Wonderful Farmhouse B&B

5 on August 24, 2017

Enfield Manor is perfectly situated to explore the Finger Lakes region; minutes from beautiful state parks and downtown Ethaca. The beautifully restored farmhouse is a relaxing and welcoming place to end and begin your days of exploring the area. The innkeepers, Inez and Tom, were most helpful, accommodating and interesting, sharing information and engaging in conversation. The room was beautifully arranged with very good lighting, seating options, excellent bed and comforters. We had chosen the room with the bath room across the hall way which was spacious, brand new and extremely clean. We very much enjoyed all the breakfast options and appreciated their great effort to run a "green" B&B. We will recommend Enfield Manor to friends and would love to return in the future.


Spacious room in a great location

Large, comfortable room, great breakfast. Quiet, rural location, yet close to great state parks and Cornell University. Helpful, welcoming hosts.


Beautiful gardens and views - peaceful setting

5 on July 09, 2017

Our first trip to the Finger Lakes region and we spent a week in Mallard Cottage at Enfield Manor - very clean and cozy cottage just perfect for two people - well-equipped kitchen - great deck overlooking beautiful grounds - gorgeous views. Tom and Inez were terrific hosts - made us feel right at home - made sure we had everything we needed - and offered great ideas for sightseeing. The grounds are beautiful - perennial gardens everywhere - and a pretty water feature that is very relaxing to sit by and listen to the gentle flow of the water as you take in the views. Floyd and Sally are two beautiful golden retrievers that are very friendly and loving - they are very fortunate to have the run of this gorgeous property. Enfield Manor was a great location for our "home base" - it is set on a very rural and quiet street away from the hustle and bustle yet in minutes you can be in downtown Ithaca. Robert Treman park is just down the street - Buttermilk Falls, Taughannock, and Watkins Glen are close by - Hammandsport on Lake Keuka is an awesome town to visit as is Skaneateles - and for any baseball lovers you can do a day trip to Cooperstown and the Baseball Hall of Fame which is just over a 2-hour drive and well worth it. We highly recommend Enfield Manor, Mallard Cottage, and Tom and Inez (Floyd and Sally, too!) - thank you for helping to make our Finger Lakes vacation so wonderful!!


Enfield, flowers, birds, views, comfort and serenity.

I am pleased and happy to validate the previous positive reviews of this charming, country Bed and Breakfast. Inez and Tom showed genuine interest in our comfort, were attentive listeners and eager to share their knowledge of the area, making recommendations based on our needs. The two mornings we awoke to the sound of birds, found my wife and I well rested on an extremely comfortable mattress. The breakfast menu was given to us the night before so that we could individually choose our preferences. We enjoyed both of our selections. The purpose of our trip was to visit and hike at the Robert H. Treman State Park, less than 5 minutes away and also Watkins Glen State Park, a beautiful 30 minute drive from The Manor through the country. We made sure we spent time in Ithaca which has plenty to see and do for a trip of its own and to relax at The Manor, admiring not only the surroundings but also marveling at the work, care and love Tom and Inez have put into their home and property.


Relaxing Stay

5 on June 09, 2017

We recently returned from a 3 night stay at Enfield Manor, and thoroughly enjoyed it. They are very centrally located, just a short distance to Ithaca and Watkins Glen, Cayuga and Seneca Wine trails, as well as the State Parks, with plenty of hiking trails and waterfalls. The friendly hosts, Inez and Tom, made it easy to feel at home as soon as we arrived. They work very hard to keep their home immaculate, both inside and out. They are very familiar with the area and gave us great tips on restaurants, wineries, etc. Inez prepared an awesome breakfast every morning, giving us a good start for the days activities. They also have 2 friendly golden retrievers, which were a lot of fun. We would highly recommend Enfield Manor, and look forward to staying there again when we're in the area.


Quiet, rural setting w/ lovely valley view

5 on April 21, 2017

We had the pleasure of being the first guests of the 2017 season at Enfield Manor; stayed in the Alex Haley room. The room was very comfortable; everything was spotless. Breakfast was made to order & tasted great. Inez & Tom could not have been more accommodating. We'll have to return when warmer weather allows dining on the back patio next to the fish pond - beautiful setting!


A perfect location for Ithaca and Finger Lakes Exploration

4.2 on November 07, 2016

I selected Enfield Manor for its location and a private bath with our room. The bed was comfy and supportive. It is a beautiful old house with gorgeous views all around. At night from our room (Harriet Tubman) we could see the lights of Ithaca and the colleges distant in the horizon. In the morning, we woke to the sunrise. It is a quiet location about 10 or 15 minutes from busy-ness of Ithaca. Tom and Inez are very welcoming and friendly. Tom makes the best omelettes I've had in a while.


Excellent Stay

My wife and I stayed over for Labor Day weekend and loved it. I have dietary restrictions and they went out of their way to provide special things for my breakfast. Inez and Tom were both very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. It's very close to Robert H Treman State Park so you can get to Lucifer Falls very quickly. It's not a long drive to get to Ithaca or Watkin's Glen too. The property is beautiful and it's great place to stay!


Mallard Cottage is a gem!

4.8 on August 28, 2016

Just spent a weekend visiting our daughter at Cornell, and stayed again with Tom and Inez at Enfield Manor. Each time we stay, we enjoy more of Tom and Inez's vision, with their lovely grounds growing to include new gardens, walkways, patio with beautiful stone wall and fountain. Mallard Cottage is immaculately clean and absolutely comfortable, light-filled and airy. We arrived to a gloriously starry night, and fell asleep to the sounds of crickets and bullfrogs and gently falling water from their goldfish pond. Morning sported birdsong and a golden sunrise, and spirited greetings from Sally and Floyd, resident Golden Retrievers. Innkeepers Tom and Inez are welcoming and accommodating and friendly, all in the right measure. So glad to have found this gem of a place to stay when visiting Ithaca!

Innkeeper Response
We would like to thanks all our guests who have posted reviews! We are so glad that we can share the beauty that we are surrounded by with you all and feel so moved when we read your enthusiastic comments! We hope to further develop our grounds and surrounding conservation land to make room for more plant and animal species. And we continue to be delighted by the great people who chose to stay with us and are invariably fascinated by the bits and pieces that they share from their lives! We hope to see all of you back some day and don't forget that Mallard Cottage is pet friendly!!

How Sweet it was!

5 on August 21, 2016

We traveled for 3 weeks from NYC to Maine and then back home to San Francisco. We stayed in many places, met many people and Enfield Manor was my favorite, I remember many fond details of staying there and hope I can return. Tom and Inez met us outside, offered to help us with our bags and were gracious hosts. We stayed in the Harriet Tubman Suite, which was spacious,with a wonderful bed(so important to me when traveling!), wood floors, had windows open(didn't need air conditioning), crickets at night and so quiet. We were given menus ,enjoyed a sumptuous breakfast on a lovely porch, with sweet music in the background and over looking the beautiful property that Tom and Inez have amazingly maintained. Loved this place!
