This place truly goes above and beyond for what a B&B concept means. Yes, you'll have the best home made food and cozy rooms to stay at, but you'll also have enjoyable talks, fun stories and sound advice about the whereabouts. The owners are very knowledgeable on the area and they love sharing it, making you wish to stay in town longer. Carol puts her heart to everything she does, making you feel really welcome, as if you were Home. Me and my family LOVED to stay here!! (my 15 months old baby included)

My friend and I had a very nice stay at the VanCleef - Carol was very accommodating to our needs. The room was very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was delicious!! We would definitely stay with Carol again.

Our rooms were huge, the beds were comfortable, the whole house was well kept and full of interesting things, breakfast was delicious, fellow travelers were pleasant, and hostess Carol could not have been more hospitable. Convenient walking distance to downtown Seneca Falls. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat!

Wonderful and very hospitable B&B in the Finger Lakes Region. Very closely located to Wineries and attractions in Seneca Falls (Womens Rights Museum, It's A Wonderful Life Museum, Canal Boat Ride, etc.). Also only a 1/2 hour drive to Watkins Glen. Carol was a very gracious host and we loved the fresh fruit every morning for breakfast. We would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone and would stay here again if in the area.

I would recommend the VanCleef Homestead B&B, Carol is very nice and it is a good location to explore the Finger Lakes area! Beds are comfortable, rooms a good size, parking in the back, and lots of maps/knowledge of the area from Carol.

Very nice B&B. The rooms and decor throughout the house are pretty and very comfortable. The hosts are very nice people. They made us feel very welcome. Conveniently located to the Seneca Falls downtown and historical areas. You could either walk or drive. There are no TVs in the bedrooms or in the common rooms. You can certainly bring DVDs and watch them on your PC or devices, or watch movies or programs online. The wireless at the B&B is good.
It is our goal to make everyone feel at home and comfortable, surrounded by comfort and hospitality! We welcome your comments, especially the alternatives to "no TV". So many guests look to be unplugged while here, and they enjoy the quiet and serenity of our B&B. Thank you for telling travelers about your stay!

Baked French Toast
French Toast made with Amish homemade bread, baked with fresh fruit, such as blueberries, apples, or peaches. Our guests have told us we should find another name for this dish, as the term "French Toast" doesn't do it justice!
