Located in the village of Seneca Falls, this beautiful home and gracious innkeepers Ken and Diane are just the best. They are very friendly and most helpful to guide us to our points of interest. They love their B&B and it shows. This was our second time staying here and we plan to return again in June.

Barristers Inn is a beautiful, historical home and our room was extremely comfortable. Ken gave us lots of great advice about Seneca Falls and he is a wonderful breakfast chef. We found a 9:00 breakfast was a little late though but it was delicious!

From the moment we arrived late evening, Ken, was the perfect host. Welcoming us to Barristers and getting us settled in was followed with directions to Goulds for a late dinner. We had a two room space with comfortable king bed, newly renovated bath. The sofa provided place to relax while my wife was in bed sleeping. But the best... More

Seneca Falls is such a wonderful, sleepy little village with great history. We enjoyed walking around the town and checking out the women's rights park sites and other history. We stayed at Barrister's B&B which is located in easy walking distance to the town center. The B&B is a great classic brick mansion and the rooms are tastefully decorated in... More

Wonderfully decorated, clean and comfortable room in historic Victorian house. Spacious en suite bath with jacuzzi tub. Refrigerator upstairs for guest's use. Centrally located--walk to restaurants, shops, canal, historic sites. Great library almost just across the street. Nice for exploring Cayuga and Seneca lakes. Breakfast included homemade muffins, really nice fruit salad, and tasty frittata and sausage, plus all the... More

Lovely house in the heart of Seneca Falls, Bedford Falls in a Wonderful Life, within walking distance of the museums and restaurants. Lunch is superb in the local deli. Catch the Wonderful Life exhibit. Breakfast was very good. The room was nicely furnished with older furniture and the bed very comfortable.

We planned an overnight trip to enjoy some of the history and attractions in the area. The B & B is located within walking distance for most visitors (or a very short drive) to the downtown area including the "It's A Wonderful Life Museum".

My husband and I enjoy travel to historical areas, and save up to stay at a bed and breakfast when we are lucky enough to travel without our children.
