We ran late.... ( our fault, although the website says open 12 - dinner, to be fair) .....but the lovely manager at the desk understood that the birthday lunch, for my Mom, who had celebrated her wedding reception and her 50th wedding anniversary here, was very special. He spoke to the remaining staff and he made our special lunch happen!!...

Taughannock Farms Inn is a delightful inn along beside the lake adjacent to Taughannock Falls State Park. The rooms are charming, if somewhat old fashioned. The common areas and grounds are beautiful and the included continental breakfast is a high quality affair. Fast, free Wi-Fi is another plus - particularly in an area with poor cell phone service.

We decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary by staying at The Taughannock Farms Inn. The grounds overlooking Cayuga Lake are beautiful with many outside places to sit and enjoy the views. There is an outdoor gas fired fire pit that was enjoyable to sit by with a cocktail in the evening. The inn itself is an inviting, vintage mansion with...

We had our wedding reception here 37 years ago, and have returned periodically through the years. It was wonderful to return again and find that it is better than ever. My husband had the lobster and pasta with white sauce, which was wonderful. I chose New England clam chowder (superb!) and the Butter Lettuce salad entree with shrimp (MMmmmm -...

We stayed here while touring NY wineries, breweries and distilleries. It was a beautiful, warm and thoroughly enjoyable time! Lakeview guest house was warm and comfortable with a beautiful view. Dinner and breakfast were both delicious, very filling and the views were amazing! Highly recommend!!!

Finding a hotel room in Ithaca is a mess any time there is a school event at Cornell and/or Ithaca College. However, just a short, scenic drive outside of Ithaca along the shores of Cayuga Lake is the Taughannock Farms Inn. The Inn is so peaceful--along the lines of a large bed and breakfast--and the views are wonderful. We stayed...

We stayed at the Taughannock Farms Inn last weekend and hosted a Saturday afternoon reception there following my father's memorial service. This family reunion brought more than 20 of our family members together from Canada and 7 states to stay in various buildings on the property. My family stayed in a double room in the Edgewood building where the rooms...

The Inn has changed owners and menu. It is a first class place, great service, excellent food, good wine choice. They are making structural changes that are already adding to its natural ambience. It is a must go place, don't miss it.

we have been travelling in this area for several days and stayed in all price range hotels.When we checked in , we were quoted a very high price comparing to all the other places we stayed before.The reason we took it was because of good reviews and free breakfast that was included in the room rate.
