“Wonderfully Different!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2011

What a great B&B! Los Gatos offers two very distinctive options – the more traditional “in-house” stay or the unique opportunity to make yourself comfortable in the privacy of one of their two cabins all of which are smartly appointed and impeccably clean. The property offers a breathtaking view of the countryside that during our visit was a feast of color with the trees displaying their beautiful fall foliage.

Susan and Burney are great hosts – attentive to all of your needs without being intrusive. They provided worthwhile insights on nearby restaurants and wineries. The best suggestion was to visit the Windmill Farm and Craft Market which is only a short drive away. Watkins Glen State Park is likewise nearby only 30 minutes from Los Gatos. At the end of each day Burney met us upon our return to ask how we enjoyed our travels – again, indicative of their simple, yet careful, attention to ensuring we enjoyed our visit.

As for the breakfasts, they were splendid offerings – a baked crepe dish called Clafoutis with blueberries and toasted walnuts accompanied by sausage patties and homemade English muffins complimented by Susan's homemade jams and jellies. The second morning it was waffles (Burney's own recipe) accentuated with Susan's homemade apple cider syrup, homemade whipped cream, home grown strawberries, homemade applesauce and maple flavored sausage links. Coffee was a house blend developed with a local coffee roaster especially for Los Gatos. A variety of select teas was also available.

For B&B aficionados who plan to visit the Seneca Lake area of the Finger Lakes we highly recommend staying at Los Gatos. We’re confident you won’t be disappointed.

We had a wonderful 31st anniversary celebration at Los Gatos and the Keuka Lake winery region, and introduced our one year anniversary son and daughter-in-law to their first B&B. Couldn't be more perfect with the full deck upstairs, the view of the meadows and surrounding landscape, and the lovely suites. The hosts are first class, the setting beautiful, and the rooms perfect and private. Thank you.

Room Tip: The upstairs suite was large enough to have two couples visit at night after dinner, and still have...

Beautiful, modern cabin with all the necessary amenities within minutes of wineries along Keuka and Seneca Lakes.We especially enjoyed the small, electric fireplace for added ambiance. Hosts were very friendly and informative. Breakfasts were homemade by the hosts Burney & Susan, including scrumptious jams and juices. Grounds were beautifully maintained, a perfect setting for an elopement.

Room Tip: Cabins are located within a few feet from the house.

Being first time at B&B, Los Gatos has definitely set the bar high for any future B&B we stay. It is ideal location if you are looking to do wine tasting in Finger Lakes region. We stayed in Sage Room and it was immaculately clean, tastefully decorated and had everything we needed for our stay. Susan and Burney were great hosts and were very helpful with information we needed about the area. We had a great time!

Sue and Burney are clearly superb hosts in every sense of the word! We stayed in the Sage Room, and I must say that everything was perfect; the room was the most perfectly decorated and cleanest I have ever stayed in, and we prefer B and Bs, so we've stayed in plenty. The breakfast was superb, and there was plenty! We highly recommend Los Gatos!!!

We picked Los Gatos as our location for an extended weekend in celebration of our 1s6 anniversary. It was the perfect spot for us ...
The location was ideal, close to the wineries and restuarants along Keuka Lake.
The atmosphere was relaxed and quiet. We had one of the cabins and absolutely loved it! They give you a measure of privacy while still offering all the comforts you need. And they have a cute front porch to spend the evening on!
And, the breakfast was fabulous! So delicious, and don't forget to grab some of the home-made jams and syrups.
Overall, we were so glad we chose Los Gatos, and will be back soon.
