I used trip advisor to find B&B, and I picked a wonderful place with a great loft. This place had everything you could think of. Great amenities and luxurious courts. I am a lucky man to find such a great B&B. The food was delicious, the owners were inviting. It truly made me and my girlfriend feel right at home...stay...

The inn keepers are both friendly and genuinely kind. The set up of the inn is very homey with a "living room" area and a pool table area. Games and puzzles are available too. When we went to these rooms, the other guests were just as friendly as the inn keepers, it was like hanging our with friends. We opted...

I liked most of everything about our stay BUT our room (Dorothy) was above the InnKeepers quarters and the noise of slamming doors and their young son running and fussing below us echoed through the room each morning. The Inn is beautiful, decorated nicely, plenty of books and games to occupy you. The room was clean and comfortable as was...

This Bed and Breakfast is awesome!!! We decided to stay here rather than hotel and do the Chocolate and Wine Tour in Seneca Lake, which was 15 minutes away. Love the antiquiness. Mike and Tanya are really warm, friendly people who make you feel as though you are old friends. Breakfast was great and freshly made.

My wife and I were at the Fox Inn for a winter weekend getaway in this gorgeously restored 1820's Greek Revival mansion. Take the Maxfield-Parrish-inspired, Art Nouveau decorated master suite with the gas fireplace if you can, although the other rooms looked clean and homey as well. Mike was incredibly friendly and accommodating (even when juggling his 1 month old...

My sister, my 19 year old daughter and I decided to take a girls-only leisurely trip to Cape Cod. I'd heard the Finger Lakes were beautiful, and home to many fine wineries, so I thought we'd plan to stop there along the way. I started looking for a unique setting that could accommodate three adults - and did I score...

Bernie and I, along with another couple, booked a late fall getaway to the Finger Lakes, and chose the Foxx Inn on another friend's recommendation. Mike and Tanya were marvelous hosts and the breakfasts were amazing, filling, and very tasty. Never before were we offered a choice of what to have for breakfast at a B&B.
