We are generally not B&B people but we only had two nights to visit the Finger Lakes area and we wanted waterfront. This is a very pretty little spot, on the water. The hosts are friendly and helpful and Maura is a great cook, the breakfasts were wonderful. The vineyard boat tour leaves right from their dock so it was... More

Maura and Skip were wonderful hosts. The rooms were great and the breakfasts that Maura prepared were better than great. And oh by the way, the view - classic NYS Finger Lakes. And we didn't even get to take the wine tour boat trip. Next time.

Our stay at this Bed & Breakfast was amazing! Met up with an old college friend to relax and catch up for a few days. We had a cozy room with a great lake front view.

Nice sized room with private bath and balcony overlooking the lake. We had access to kayaks and a row boat. My husband also fished from the dock. Walking distance to one winery with several others close by. Also close to hiking and a goat farm for cheese tasting. The owner, Maura, was very nice and made absolutely wonderful breakfasts! We...

B&B's do not get any better then this. The hosts make you feel like family the moment we arrived. Private bath with a balcony overlooking the lake. Give it a try. They have a long dock over the water with deck chairs for sun bathing. They deliver coffee to your room at your requested time. Then breakfast on the porch... More

This was our first time staying at a Bed & Breakfast and we had a great time. Maura and Skip went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable.

As sunset approached we went out on the long private dock and soaked in the golden colors, as the swallows darted about gobbling up the mosquitoes. In the late evening after a wonderful local dinner we sat on our private porch and enjoyed a bottle of (very) local wine under an umbrella of wondrously bright stars. In the morning, Maura... More

We stayed at this B&B three nights and had a lovely visit. The best parts of it were the location with an awesome view and the very special breakfasts prepared by Maura. She has a real flair for presentation as well preparing very tasty unique items. One drawback when staying in the room decorated with a tropical theme is lack... More
