This was one of the best B&Bs we have stayed at internationally....the rooms were spacious, great bed and various pillow types, a large living room to sit by the fire or watch tv, homemade cookies, snacks available at all times, bottled water, and the best 2 course breakfast. No need for lunch if you stay here. In addition, the other... More

We chose Magnolia Place as a bed and breakfast convenient to the wineries on East Seneca Lake. It was a very good choice. Many outstanding wineries, Watkins Glen, and the National Forest are minutes away. The house is very charming and tastefully decorated. Our room was spacious and well appointed. Ted and Terri were gracious hosts. Ted is a fount... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Magnolia Place. The highlights were the breakfasts and the comfortable rooms. The B&B is centrally located and has many worthwhile wineries and breweries very close. It is 15-35 minutes from multiple State Parks with great hiking. Things for you to consider: - Breakfast was not served until 9AM which precludes an... More

Absolutely amazing! We stayed in the champagne suite with a view of the vineyards and Seneca lake. Room was so clean and beautifully decorated. The sunsets were gorgeous and the wrap-around deck with rocking chairs made it all the more inviting to enjoy. The location was perfect, close to so many wineries and wonderful places to eat.

If you're looking for a relaxed, comfortable, clean, friendly place to stay in the finger lakes, look no further. Magnolia Place is gorgeous and boasts spacious rooms that are immaculately kept with private balconies that overlook the lake. Make sure to use the balcony at night and look up at the blanket of stars overhead! The owners are delightful hosts... More

I honestly cannot rate this home highly enough. Ted greeted us as we arrived, and could not have been a funnier, nor more perfect host, while we were joined by Irish, the older lab, and later by Patrick, the younger. Both dogs were incredibly well behaved. Ted put us at ease immediately. The room was beyond our expectations, and everything... More
