I relaxed!

5 on August 13, 2017

I am not someone who relaxes often or easily but I was able to do so here. From every chair on this lovely landscaped hillside property one can experience the sights and sounds of the clear and serene Lake Keuka. In the morning, you are greeted by Samantha, the super-friendly beagle, and served a delicious homemade breakfast, prepared with your dietary restrictions in mind, by Ginny, Samantha's mom. It is a nice opportunity to meet the other guests and talk about your plans for the day. Whether you choose to take out their canoe or kayak, go for a hike, tour some wineries or explore one of the area's larger towns, Ginny and Jamie (Samantha's dad) will help navigate your course. We had perfect weather during our visit, but should you be less fortunate, you can view the lake from the chaise in the living room through the floor to ceiling windows. Or, depending on your room, sit on your balcony with a bottle of wine that you purchased from one of the local wineries you visited that day, and enjoy the view. Like I said, there is no bad chair in the house. To be sure, I did not sit during the entire visit. Watkins Glen, home to beautiful waterfalls, is a 30 minute drive. The gorge is nature at its finest. The Keuka Outlet is also a great walking/biking path and just minutes from the B&B. Wineries, produce farms and ice cream stands line the Finger Lakes and range from very simple structures to large fancy properties. Many of the wineries host special events throughout the season like live music and happy hours. My new favorite is the Spotted Duck Creamery located just a few miles from the B&B. The Spotted Duck makes homemade all-natural custard and, like the wineries that offer flights to sample the various wines, here, they offer ice cream flights! Ginny and Jamie are not only excellent innkeepers, they are good people. My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Steamboat Castle B&B and hope to return soon.

The perfect getaway!!!

This was our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast, the Steamboat Castle was the perfect get away!!! Ginny and Jamie, were wonderful hosts paying attention to every detail. The view of the lake was breathtaking. It was so relaxing and peaceful to sit by the side of the lake on any one of the beautiful patios. We hope to visit again soon!!!! And will recommend the Steamboat Castle to everyone!!!
