“A Nice View onto Lake Seneca”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

My wife and I spent two nights in The Phoebe Room. The view was terrific, the room was spacious, and the bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. Even so, there was an absence of a consistent theme in the room, with what seemed to be too much "stuff."

The bathroom could stand some updating. The floors were carpeted with a small amount of linoleum. The shower was well used and the shower floor needed some cleaning. The blue sink appeared out of character with the room.

The mother and daughter hosts were extremely energetic and helpful during breakfast. They prepared delicious breakfasts and made us and the other guests feel completely at home with their hospitality during breakfast. They provided very good recommendations for restaurants, wineries and other things to do without hesitation.

We were disappointed that we were not shown to our room upon our arrival. Instead, one of the owners welcomed us in the foyer, seemed irritated that I had not read the rule about not parking in the driveway, and returned to drink some wine with her friend on the back porch. For the amount of money we spent for the room, we were surprised that we were not offered a complimentary water or drink at any time.

What a great b&b experience! If you have never experienced a b&b this is a great first time that will spoil you for the rest. We had the Phoebe room which had a view facing the lake, and a large bathroom (converted from another bedroom. Breakfast was fantastic& the owner is so friendly you that it is like you have known her forever!

We had the best time at the Bragdon House. We stayed for four nights and each one was better then the last. Starting with breakfast...wow! Weather it was a souffle or french toast, every breakfast was delicious and served with a great sense of humor by Jen. Sitting with the other guest got us talking and we would meet up later on the porch to finish our day. Our room (the Di Suite) was comfortable and decorated beautifully. The location was also great. We were able to walk into Geneva for dinner, and the lake was right there for our morning walks. Jen and Diane's recommendations were always right on the mark. Every restaurant they recommended was outstanding. If we didn't know what to do for the day, one of them always had a great idea for us to try. We couldn't of been more pleased with our decision to stay at the Bragdon house. Give it a try. You will be back.

We stayed two nights here on July 28-29 and enjoyed it very much. We stayed in the second floor "Betty" room, although we would have preferred the larger Di's Suite, which was booked. Diane is a lovely host, and we enjoyed meeting and conversation with the other guests. Would definitely recommend this B&B for anyone staying in the Finger Lakes area. The only downside I'd mention is that the free WiFi is a bit weak and doesn't reach into all areas of the house.

There are reasons why Bragdon House is rated #1 in Trip Advisor!
My husband and I could not have asked for a nicer place to spend our anniversary weekend.
We stayed in Phoebe's Suite, and it was perfect. Views of Seneca Lake from every window!
A super comfortable king sized bed, cool furnishings, huge bathroom, a powerful and quiet air conditioner...everything that our own bedroom at home lacked!
We loved having morning coffee out on the veranda with it's amazing lake views.
We also loved having evening cocktails on the veranda.
If we were there in the afternoon, I suspect we would have loved having an afternoon iced tea on the veranda. Personally, I would have been happy just hanging out there, forget about the wineries! :)
Geneva and the surrounding area is full of things to do. I recommend dining at Ports Cafe. An amazing meal! Also, the Three Brothers Vineyards...especially the War Horse portion of it. Beer Brewery and beer tastings for those who don't love wine. VERY cool place!!
Di and Jennifer were SO NICE!! I felt like I knew them forever. And they are both fantastic hostessed and amazing cooks. Our breakfasts were unique and delicious. The other couples we dined with so friendly and happy. Hard not to be happy when you're staying at the #1 Bed and Breakfast in Geneva! We will definitely be back!!

My husband and I stayed overnight here July 21, 2014. What a spectacular view from the balcony! Our room was quaint and nicely decorated.

Had a lovely chat with the owner, Di that evening- was a lovely night.

Breakfast was delicious as well, very nicely prepared.

Stayed here for a week while visiting the wineries. AMAZING! The mother/daughter team could not be more accommodating... it truly felt like visiting old friends.... and the breakfast was scrumptious! Booked Di's Suite and have zero regrets. Easily, the best way to experience all the finger lakes have to offer. And check out Ports for an amazing dinner.
