My wife and I made our first trip to the Finger Lakes and the Fox Inn was great. The Innkeepers were helpful and kind. They even waited up when we were delayed because of traffic. Can not recommend enough.

A wonderful and quiet place to take a break. Excellent hospitality included outstanding made-to-order breakfast. Room was comfortable and clean. Nearby Keuka lake bike trail, Watkins Glen Gorge and numerous farm stands and wineries provide entertainment.

So Much fun! My man had been working 7 days a week for almost 2 months and he surprised me on his day off by taking me to the Fox Inn. If you want a nice B&B with tons of antique shops and local restaurants near by this is the place, not to mention the lake is close too. The...

Our family took over this large, roomy, home during a family reunion with our American cousins. We were warmy welcomed and told to use the entire house as or own. .. which we did. Pool games, watching the tennis matches and lounging in the historical rooms between visits to Keuka Lake, made our visit comfortable and homey. And the breakfasts!...

We visit the Finger Lakes area at least once a year and stay at different Bed & Breakfast Inns. The Fox Inn was definitely the best B & B we stayed at in the area.

An 1820 Inn in a great location - the top of Keuka Lake and in among a couple of very good restaurants. The owners were very attentive, the breakfasts not to be believed and our room was large (Wm. Oliver Suite), comfy, with a new bath and a gas burning fireplace. Quite a visit.

Great historic B&B in an easy-to-find, central location. Very warm owners who serve a fantastic breakfast. We enjoyed having coffee and sitting on their front porch at night, watching the Amish drive by in their buggies. We stayed in a room with a jetted tub that was very nice after a day of hiking! Access to ice, cold drinks, wine,...

The Fox Inn is nestled in the small village of Penn Yan. It was a lovely historical building loaded with charm. The owners, Tanya and Mike, were wonderful! The rooms were clean, beds were comfy and the breakfast was huge! Keuka Lake was about a mile away. The Keuka wine trail was great with two standouts being The Ravine and...
