“Relax. Enjoy the lake.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

Took a chance on staying at this newly opened B&B for our anniversary and could not be happier. Beautiful building with many areas around the house and yard to view the lake. Although others were around we felt like we were alone because there are so many places to hang out that privacy was easily achieved. Our room had a private balcony which we used every morning and every night. Amazingly peaceful and serene. Our room was excellent, although a bit on the small side we had everything we needed: private bathroom with awesome shower, thick towels, firm mattress, quality bathrobes, and flat screen TV. The whole house is beautifully renovated with eye appealing decorations throughout. The inn keepers were warm and friendly and made us feel right at home. The breakfasts were excellent; fresh fruits and tasty breakfast fare. The house has coffee/tea always available, a guest kitchen with fridge/freezer, utensils and dinnerware. There is also a grill available outside for guests to use. The inn keepers really have made this the perfect B&B to enjoy the lake. Will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: The rooms with private balcony are great.

We absolutely loved our stay with Ginny and Jaime at Steamboat Castle. We were looking for a cozy retreat to enjoy a long weekend in the Finger Lakes and this totally fit the bill. They recently completed a renovation of the house and it was absolutely stunning. Breakfast every morning was delightful (Ginny I still want the recipe for those Apple Cinnamon Scones!!) and a great time to chat with the other guests- to find out what everyone had done the day before or had planned for the day. The location in Penn Yan was quite convenient to town and both the Seneca and Keuka Wine Trails.

I can't recommend Steamboat Castle highly enough and cannot wait for book our next visit!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Cricket- which was on the top floor and had a private balcony overlooking the lake!

Want to enjoy a lakeside establishment? New in Sept. 2013, this
totally refurbed B&B promises to do very well. It’s a classic.
Lots of space inside to stretch out; with various sweeping
interior spaces and nooks to accomodate your changing needs.
The latest technology in conveniences are available to
keep your life seemlessly happy. If you require rest and comfort,
SCB&B is your ticket to unwind. The breakfasts and attention to
detail are first rate. You can even jump into a canoe and tour the
shoreline for the very best view of the lake.
My wife and I certainly were impressed with this venue,
and the friendly attention received from our hosts.

This recently renovated B&B is absolutely beautiful and has stunning views of Keuka Lake. The renovations of the house were done masterfully. While making modern updates, the artistry and character of the original building was kept intact. All except one room have views of the lake. We stayed in the Howell room which had access to a covered balcony overlooking the lake, which was fabulous. The rooms are all very tastefully decorated and have flat screen TVs and private bathrooms with rain showers. The common lounge areas and dining room are very spacious and comfortable, again with fabulous views. There are several outdoor areas, including a firepit, as well as canoe and rowboat. We loved our canoe ride! The breakfasts are outstanding. Yummy homemade scones, breads, and tarts are served as appetizers and then a wonderful savory or sweet entree is prepared, such as peach french toast! Everything was absolutely delicious! The hosts, Ginny and Jamie, are very hospitable, and we enjoyed their company very much. Also, their beagle, Samantha, is an absolute love! There are many wineries and restaurants nearby. We truly felt like we were in our own vacation home. We plan to return.

Room Tip: The Howell room has a covered balcony overlooking the lake, so you can sit outside, rain or shine.

This beautiful B/B was completely renovated with the view of Keuka Lake as the inspiration. Very comfortable rooms, each with private bath. The balconies overlook great outdoor patios and the private dock. Breakfast is prepared each morning and features fresh, local produce and wonderful homemade entrees. The common living spaces offer comfy furniture and large screen TV, as well as that spectacular lake view. It is a just a very special place!

Room Tip: Only one room doesn't face the lake...and it doesn't have a balcony either. It is probably a...
