“Girls Getaway Weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

We spent the weekend at the Savannah House Inn for a bacheolorette weekend and had a great time. Brenda made sure that our stay was comfortable and we had everything we needed. The rooms were very clean and the bedding was super comfortable. After a fun day of wine tasting, it was great to come back to the inn and chill by the firepit.

We were looking for a relaxing 4th of July getaway weekend with friends and found it here at Savannah House Inn near Seneca Lake. Yes, this is a remote location but that is exactly what we were aiming for...peace and tranquility, with scenic views...and only a short drive to Watkins Glen where there's lots to do and see, including various wine tours. The hospitality was great and the charm and attention to detail in the room accommodations was something you won't see at a chain motel. We hope to return to check out the Fall colors. Thank you Brenda and Pat, and Josie the cat, for a truly enjoyable weekend! Laurie & Bill D.

I have been here a couple of times and it always feels like coming home. The rooms and property are as welcoming as the owners Brenda and Pat. Beautiful views of the lake with a fire pit in the evenings make this place an outstanding retreat for family and friends. It is simple in layout but that is what makes it simply beautiful. I would recommend this place to any kind of traveler. It is a terrific escape from the insanity of daily life.

Room Tip: This is a motel type layout. All the rooms I've stayed in are equally lovely. If you need total...

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this property. Pat and Brenda are the host/hostess who aim to please. It's a no frills motel but the rooms are kept very clean with fresh towels and linens; I especially liked the colorful towels we got each time they gave us clean ones that smell so sweet you'll feel like you are visiting mom. Brenda decorates each room with beautiful bright colors, antique accessories throughout the rooms and the peace you get staying at this inn is what makes it worth the stay!.

There is a BBQ grill for the guests to use if they opt not to go out to dine, picnic tables, adirondeck chairs for relaxing after a day of wine tasting and touring. There is a fire pit where you can sit and chat with other guests if you wish too or just take a stroll around the property for a quiet time alone or sit on the swing under the tree with your partner. There is coffee and tea in the main building where you can mingle with others or chat with Pat who is always available to share some stories from when he lived and worked in New York City's financial district. Not to mention that Brenda offers some suggestions for places to see and spend the day exploring. It's a short drive to Watkins Glen town which is a much visit location. I guess my most memorable moment was when I said good-bye to Pat and he gave me a bear hug; I felt like I was leaving my friend's home. I would definitely recommend staying at the Savannah Inn if you are looking for a clean, quiet and economical place to stay with all the comforts of home!

Cheers to Pat and Brenda!

Brenda and Pat were so great. They gave us such a warm welcome when we arrived. Gave us great places to visit in the area, and made sure everything was perfect in the room. The property is beautiful. Make sure you eat at Emiles in Geneva, food is delicious and staff are great. Make sure you get what you need before you get to the Inn as there is nothing around to pick up snacks, beer etc. Do not let that deter you from staying there the place is great.

Reading other reviews and the percentage of positive reviews to negative. The water pressure in the room we had was a trickle. It appears that we were in the percentage of the negative reviews. I contribute this to having higher standards..as were presented on the internet..but not received in reality. A cute place..unorganized as some call it or laid back as Pat calls it. Being nice matters and so does knowing what a confirmation means when you are running a business. When you pay for a service the consumer should get what is advertised.

We are stunned at this reviewer's comments, because the whole time they were here all they offered were exceptionally positive comments. None of the comments herein were presented to us. To begin with, as in every reservation we do which includes a private wine tour, we advise the guest that we will try to get the vehicle they prefer because tour requests at all limo companies are very heavy - plus this guest did their reservation only 2 weeks prior to arrival. After taking this reservation, we contacted the limo company and they advised that they only had a luxury van - no limos available - they were heavily booked. We then contacted this guest and advised them of what the limo company told us. Guest advised they would accept the van. They weren't happy about it, but they agreed. If they had not found the van acceptable, we would not have charged them for the tour, and they were told this. Upon arrival, they told us that their rooms were beautiful, and they seemed very happy with everything. The next morning they did their tour, and when they came back they told us that they apologized for their attitude at time of reservation, because they thought they were going to be in "some sort of plumber's van", but it was very nice and they had a great tour. At one point, guest approached Brenda, put her hand on Brenda's shoulder, and told her to be sure to tell Pat that she apolgizes for her mistake and the misunderstanding about the van. They told us they were "all happy and things were great". Again when departing, guests made a point of telling us their stay was great and they were going to be back again in the future. As for the water concern - we are noted for 2 things when it comes to our water system - the hot water is very hot, and the water pressure is very high. If guest's water was at a "trickle" as they claim, why then did they not come and tell us. This review is the first time we have heard this, and guest's claim completely contradicts observations of many other guests. In 7 years of operation, and 170 guest reviews, no one has ever made a similar claim. In 2014, it is very rare for the owners to be present and running a motel. We are here every day for our guests and we are very responsive to their concerns. We were here for these guests. They had the opportunity to tell the owners directly of any concern they might have. They did not. All they told us was how great everything was, and even apologized for assuming the van would not be as we described it.
