Finger Lakes B&B

128 South Avenue , Penn Yan, NY 14527 USA (Show map)


Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast is a casually comfortable 1840 era Italianate mansion located on 4.5 acres of manicured lawn and woods with nature trail. Each of our five guest rooms has a private bath en suite, flat screen TV's with DVD player, air conditioning and wonderful views. Awake to the sounds of birds chirping and breezes blowing through the trees, then head down to a freshly prepared gourmet breakfast featuring local and home grown ingredients. Though secluded, Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast is only one half mile from the center of Penn Yan and Keuka Lake, and both the Keuka and Seneca Lake wine trails are easily accessible.

Exceptional B&B!

5 on October 23, 2017

We recently met friends for a midweek getaway and were beyond satisfied with the entire experience at the B&B. The bedrooms and common areas are spacious and tastefully decorated to reflect the period of the home as well as being comfortably modern. The multi-course breakfasts were delicious with portions to satisfy a large eater. Cindy and Casey are gracious innkeepers who are attentive to every detail and provided a lot of information about local sites which helped to make our stay very enjoyable. These small touches in addition to the delicious homemade cookies have made the Finger Lakes the destination for our next trip back to the region.

Finger Lakes B&B July 2017

4.4 on July 17, 2017

Finger Lakes B&B has excellent breakfast and service! It's a little hot in the house with only AC in the bedrooms. But the house is very lovely and well kept up as it is very old. The Kowalskis are very knowledgeable about the house and about the surrounding town and community. Their recommendation of a local winery was spot on!!

Great B& B

Finger Lakes B & B is a wonderful, quaint place to stay! The owners are excellent chefs and hosts! This B & B is near several great vineyards/wineries. One of which they highly recommended, Keuka Springs, and it was a beautiful vineyard with outstanding wine! I highly recommend this B&B!

My husband and I first stayed at the Finger Lakes B&B in 2013 and we loved it then. We attended a Keuka Lake Wine Trail event then, and finally returned in 2017 to do another event and of course, stayed here again, in our favorite room, the Music Room. Cindy and Casey are absolutely wonderful hosts in every way!

Repeat excellence

Beautiful B&B

4.2 on December 01, 2016

Made a last minute reservation for the Keuka Holiday Wine Event and accommodations were limited. We were so glad we chose Finger Lakes B&B in Penn Yan. It was a beautiful, quiet place near everything we wanted to see. The hosts were gracious and very helpful. The breakfasts were delicious and filling, a perfect way to start the day. We will definitely return again. I highly recommend it.
