So happy we found this wonderful B&B. We booked the only three nights they had for a quick getaway from the Philadelphia heat and humidity. Wanted to be on water could not ask for more. This is not your flat screen tv in every room kind of place but if you are looking for some old world charm then this...

My husband and I stayed at The Silver Strand in Ovid NY after being referred there by a friend. Since it was my husband's 50th birthday, I wanted to do something special for him. My husband likes to fish and boat and doesn't like to be around a whole lot of people. He is a quiet guy who enjoys solitude...

Always reading before we book any travel arrangements, the TripAdvisor for this B&B was spot on. Maura and Skip are lovely hosts. You will feel welcome in their house. You will have a relaxing comfortable room with a view of the beautiful Lake. You will have awesome varied breakfasts. You will meet interesting new people. You will not regret booking...

We booked the Silver Strand via the internet, so we had a limited idea of what we would get, although the Finger Lakes and the B&B both read well. Were we lucky, or is everywhere this good? The building is old and a little creaky, but to us Brits, it is a perfect representation of rural America. The view from...

The best the Finger Lakes has to offer. The scenic view of the lake and a gourmet breakfast on the porch is a perfect start to your day. We have been coming to the Silver Strand for over 10 years and plan to return in years to come to relax, re-charge and reward ourselves during this weekend vacation get-a-way.

Silver Strand is a wonderful bed and breakfast. We always felt welcome in the common areas, which include a dining room, living room (with tv), and a sprawling wrap-around porch. Although not mentioned in their advertising, I was able to connect to the internet. There is also a cooler stocked with water, soda, beer and wine which is available 24...

Our fourth visit was pleasurable as always. Maura and Skip are friendly and caring owners. Maura's breakfast is out of this world delicious. The views are wonderful. You can walk to a local winery, relax on the dock, take a nap on the hammock,or take a boat ride with Skip. Don't expect luxury. Expect a restful visit that will entice...

I highly recommend the Silver Strand. We stayed two nights and had a wonderful, restful stay. Maura's breakfasts are amazing. And Skip's winery cruise was fun. We stayed in the smallest and least expensive room because it was the only one available. It was fine - in fact, it's porch was a perfect place to sit and enjoy a glass...

From start to finish - an amazing experience. Maura and Skip are exceptional people ! Maura is able to completely integrate the considerable local bounty of the Cayuga farm region into every delectable meal - and then some. Their community of friends, vintners and restaurateurs provide so much more than wonderful food and drink for their patrons. You'll feel connected...

The Silver Strand at Sheldrake was the perfect location not only to be right on Cayuga Lake it was very close to the Thirsty Owl where we were attending a Summer Solstice Party. Maura was the perfect hostess......we arrived early and to our surprise there was a cancellation so she offered us an "upgrade" to the front room #3 we...
