This is a recently opened B&B, completely renovated by Ginny and Jamie. They essentially rebuilt the grounds, including retaining walls, walkways, multi-level patios, gas firepit. The home itself is beautifully done, with large windows overlooking Keuka Lake. One can walk the steps to the shore of the lake, and there is a long dock with chairs to just take in the view. All the rooms have a great view, and antiques abound in the home. The modernization was painstaking, including a ground floor dining area with a new kitchen. The common areas are spacious and have lots of natural light, including main floor and ground floor areas. Ginny and Jamie know the area well, and go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. Unlike some homes of this vintage, there is a wealth of space indoor and out, so that one can be alone or socialize as one prefers. This has a very private feel to it, as it is considerably away from a not-too-busy road, and the adjacent homes are very quiet. Breakfast was fabulous, the room was quiet, and service was perfect.
