A small group of stayed here while hiking on the Finger Lakes Trail, which is only 12 miles away. We splurged for the weekend, as we typicaly stay in "mom & pop" hotels. Alice's Dowry was nicely decorated and clean. The bed rooms were large and the beds very comfortable. The Innkeeper Mary was very accomodating and pleasant. Breakfast was good, and she will make dinner with advanced notice. Cinncinnatus is a quaint scenic little town in rural central NY, which is why I only gave 3 stars for the location- its really in the middle of "nowhere", which if that is where you want to spend a relaxing weekend is fine- but you have to travel a bit for food or activities. We would stay here again for sure.
