This place is a dream! We stayed here only for one night (wish it could've been longer) on our way to Massachusetts from Niagara Falls. We met Anne and Steve, and immediately felt welcomed and at home! After helping us upstairs, he showed us around the house and to our room - the Oneida River Suite. It is even more beautiful than the pictures, but we didn't have much time to relax because we were also set up to take the River boat dinner cruise! A MUST!!! Wow oh WOW! The weather and river and the whole environment was just amazing! We boarded the boat and enjoyed refreshments and music and conversation while smelling the wonderful meal that Anne was making for us. I learned how fantastic of a cook she was that night and it would be reiterated the next morning for breakfast. If you get a chance, let Steve and Anne take you on the river boat dinner cruise - you will not regret it! When we returned, my husband and I enjoyed the deck out by the room and fell in love with everything! The bed was comfortable, the house was quiet, it was a perfect place for a peaceful rest. The next morning we had a pre-breakfast treat waiting outside our door - coffee and some kind of tasty cake - what a surprise! Steve was a great conversationalist and did not make us feel uncomfortable, but more like family! One minor problem I had, but I totally got over it - I wish there was a handheld shower head for the shower... it is a small shower and a handheld would have been very helpful, but no biggie. We will most definitely be back to this gem! Absolutely enchanting!
