“Decendants of Sheldrake coming home”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

Our trip to Sheldrake NY was to visit the Hilltop Cemetery and count the many generations of my family that made Sheldrake there home. In our immediate family, Mom having died in 2001 at 89, we have over a100 decendants with ties to Sheldrake, and I can't imagine how many other family's have ties to this wonderful little place, come and visit.

This was our first time staying at the Silver Strand and we will be back again. Maura and Skip are not only great hosts, they are historians and interesting. Thanks for hooking me up with the elder local historian Naomi.

The location is close to so many Winery's that it will take many trips to try them all. The Silver Strand is a timeless beauty that makes you relax, slow down, and to feel special.

Maura goes out of her way to make every morning breakfast a welcome treat and her personal service to each guest was well noted and appreciated. Our room, #1, is going to be our requested space for our future visits. And Maura, thanks for all you do.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good, not a bad choice anywhere.

Beautifully kept historic Inn situated in a perfect location. Maura and Skip are great hosts, making us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. Gourmet breakfasts prepared by Maura are amazing. The wine tour by boat with Skip at the helm was a highpoint of the trip..a great way to visit the wineries.We had a memorable and totally relaxing time. Would love to return.

We stayed at the Silver Strand for only one night, and wished we could've stayed longer! Maura is truly an artist of her craft, and made us feel right at home. The view of the lake was fabulous, and the breakfast couldn't have been better.

Room Tip: Room 3 was perfect!

We stayed in Silver Strand for just one night , we got the upper room with the balcony, the scenery is great, the room was beautiful. We sat on the balcony , drank wine and had some berries , what could you ask for more? The hotel manager Nora was very nice, and we had a great breakfast that included home made pastries, good bread and more. The room we got was not cheap (about 205$ with tax) but it was worth it.

Room Tip: The upper room is the best choice, cause it has a nice view to the lake

My wife and I visited in May of 2013, and it was the perfect getaway. We stayed for three nights, and the hosts (Maura and Skip) were extremely accommodating. They provided great local tips, delicious breakfasts, and the fridge was always fully stocked with libations! As parents of a 2-year-old, this was our first real vacation by ourselves. As such, we wanted something that was close enough to our NJ home (it was 4-5 hours), but far enough to serve as an escape. We stayed in Room #2, which I would highly recommend. Its balcony/veranda overlooks Cayuga Lake, and my favorite moments at Silver Strand were spent drinking coffee/wine on the veranda at sunset. 2nd favorite was doing the same on their private (and huge!) dock. It's a great location, too...just a couple miles from a number of wineries, and right down the street from another. Silver Strand at Sheldrake comes highly recommended by us, and thank you Maura & Skip for a great experience!

Room Tip: Room #2 has a great view of the lake.

So happy we found this great, relaxing B&B to get away for a few days. Maura is the perfect hostess and couldn't have asked for better breakfasts and the view is great. A great way to start any day. Having the toys right there was another plus. We also enjoyed not having a tv in our room. We would definitely recommend the Silver Strand to anyone.

After last year's visit to celebrate an anniversary, we decided to bring my brother/wife and parents back w/ us this year- My mother hates to travel and is physically limited- She raved about the stay! The first floor handicapped accessible room was perfect, especially the porch w/ awesome lake view right out her door- We stayed in room 2 again, and my brother/wife in room 3, all w/ lakeview balconies- Maura and Skip are excellent hosts and the breakfasts are excellent as well- Took the kayaks out, napped on the dock, and drank wine on the porch- Highly recommend for relaxation!

Room Tip: While not facing the lake, room #4 also has a balcony that I think has a lake view and is lower in p...
