We stayed in the Curtiss room for two nights. It was a beautiful room and house as a whole! It was a great first time B&B experience. It was great chatting with Mark & Deb and learning about the house and how they got the house up and running!

My wife and I were looking to enjoy a long weekend in the Hammondsport area for our 15th anniversary. We looked at many options online and found the Black Sheep Inn on Google. We were intrigued by the historic look of the inn and also the executive car service they offered to "tour" the wineries. We decided to book our... More

The Inn was absolutely stunning, well decorated and spotless. Debbie and Marc were more than helpful in making suggestions on fun stuff to do in the area and great restaurants to dine at. Debbie is an amazing chef who will WOW you with her gourmet breakfasts. She also makes a great cup of coffee!! We will be returning.

Charming Inn located a bit more than a mile from town. The innkeepers, Debbie and Mark, were gracious hosts, fine breakfast cooks and good guides for the area. Inn is particularly good for stays by more than two people since the common areas are like having your own private living room.

This is a unique property on a mostly quiet road. Marc and Debbie have done a great job of refurbishment. Deb is an accomplished chef, the breakfast was divine, but since I do not eat eggs, it was not really very filling. My wife does eat eggs, and her delectable breakfast did come with a gently fried egg on top,... More

Hi John and Martha, Thanks for making us a stop on your trip.

This review is not so much about the property or accommodations or the food. It is about how I was treated when I had to cancel a massage appointment 24+ hours in advance.

We normally don’t rehash details in a public setting, but it seems that you have forgotten many of the details of our transaction.

Deb and Marc are fantastic and accommodating hosts! The Inn was exactly what we were looking for, comfort and relaxation in the heart of the Finger Lakes. We especially enjoyed some of the little personal touches that Deb and Marc provided, like the organic hair and body wash, the robes, and all guests names on the welcome board (see picture)....
