Staying at this B&B was fabulous. It was comfortable, homey and clean. We stayed in the Balcony room because it had a private (and clean) bathroom. The bedroom was decorated with many things to keep you quietly occupied: playing cards, dominoes, mancala, telescope and an assortment of books. These items were not just stacked on a book shelf. They were left lying around the room for you to find, and the amazing thing was that there was no dust (even with all of the chachkes and books around). Even though it was not decorated to my taste, the room was very comfortable. There was both a fan and a portable a/c unit in the room for your comfort. There was even a comfy hammock in our room.
We had the most spectacular view and food for breakfast. We were served breakfast on the porch overlooking the lake. My husband called it "serene". It was probably the best breakfast my husband I have ever had. Unique and flavorful. If you have certain dietary restrictions or dislikes make sure to tell the chef of the day, they will oblige you. They did provide a gluten free meal for me and made a slight adjustment to make a "normal" meal for my husband.
This B&B is close to Ithaca. Convenient to civilization even though the house seems to be "in the middle of nowhere". Diane, the owner and also an artist, was very helpful about providing us info about the local gems. It was like we had our own, personal concierge since we were there by ourselves for the first night. There isn't always someone in the house working from the B&B. Diane does has many "angels" working for her.
We also were able to help ourselves to the outdoor hot tub in the terrycloth robes that are left in the rooms for our use.
All in all we would highly recommend staying here! Staying here instead of at a hotel "made" our vacation that much more special.
