This B&B is run by a great couple, he of the meticulous and welcoming demeanor and she of the great story-telling when prompted. The morning biscuits were melt-in-your mouth and the French toast was wonderful. The jams and honey offered were exceptionally good. If you like strong coffee, use the machine--it's got expresso-type K-cups, the perked coffee is a little weak. The bathroom in our room had a huge jacuzzi-type tub and a spacious double shower. The room was large and comfy. We do prefer softer pillows and the bed was very firm--granted we're used to a Tempurpedic. The house is furnished with wonderful antiques, beautifully restored, and the common areas are extremely comfortable. If you like to roam the grounds, including the small apple grove in Summer, bring bug repellent--the skeeters leave a vicious bite. We may go back in the Winter. Our hosts give accurate and helpful printed directions that we used to visit Corning and eat in Elmira.
