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.
