Jim and Tammy are wonderful hosts and have restored and preserved a beautiful Inn right on Lake Cayuga. Nothing like sitting on the porch, enjoying the lake breeze and reading a book. If you want to relax, enjoy a wonderful breakfast and be in the midst of beautiful scenery, there is nowhere better than the Driftwood Inn Bed & Breakfast...

Tammy and Jim provide a warm and friendly environment. Jim is quite the morning chef and there is plenty of coffee available. The setting of the B&B is right on the western shore of Lake Cayuga with a very old oak tree that shades the building from the afternoon sun. My wife and I stayed in the Room #2 and...

TJ and I had a wonderful time at the Driftwood. It was a surprise quick getaway for me and our first time staying at a Bed & Breakfast.

My boyfriend and I came across the Inn through the Internet. We had never been to the area and wanted to plan a weekend away for my birthday. The cozy cottage was clean, had all the amenities needed, and was cozy. Tammy and Jim were wonderful hosts. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and can't wait to reaturn!

Driftwood was very clean and comfortable. Jim and Tammy were great hosts. The B&B was right on the water with a great view. Sitting on the big porch was relaxing we found the whole area very friendly. We will more then likely return to the Driftwood

I honestly picked this place randomly on Google Maps, and I am glad I did. My girlfriend and I stayed her for a weekend getaway, and had nothing but a positive experience. A lot of thought is put into the breakfast each morning. If you are not a B&B person, you are able to keep to yourself. However, if you...

We wanted to go on a quick getaway and knew a little bit about the area… but had never been down to the Inn's location on Sheldrake Point on Cayuga Lake. Everything was excellent - would return again, no matter the season. Wonderful hosts and pleasant guests.

Very nice bed and breakfast inside and out. Clean, quiet and inviting. The property is right on the lake and very serene. The owners were friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was delicious. We've stayed at many B&B's over the years in all different parts of the Northeast and this was one of the best.

Accommodations were cozy and clean. The property is beautiful. Owners are welcoming. They serve a great breakfast in the morning. We were looking for a quick, relaxing getaway and found it here. Having a winery within walking distance never hurts either. We are looking forward to the next trip with more friends and will happily refer everyone we know.
