“The perfect launch point for wine lovers”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

My girlfriend and I spent many a nights on this site looking through reviews of places for our trip to the finger lakes. After about a week we finally decided on Lake Valley Legends. The B&B was right at the base of Seneca Lake, offered great accommodations, and was very fairly priced.

When we arrived we were so pleased with our room. We chose the Lakeview room and it was a really good size. The view from the sitting area was great in the morning and never did we feel cramped or crowded. The B&B had incredible charm and the owners Lou and Vicki were incredibly warm and pleasant. They even went the extra mile to have gluten free foods available for my girlfriend. The location was fantastic. We honestly chose Seneca because it had the most wineries and were both wino's. From where we were you could jump on the main highway on either side of the lake and be wine tasting in minutes.

Overall just a great experience in the Finger Lakes. Lake Valley will definitely be the first place we call when we plan our way back. What a great trip!

Room Tip: Lower rooms stay cooler in the summer. The paris and lakeview rooms were definitely our favorites.

Thank you so much for your warm and generous review! Once again, it is so rewarding to know that the care and hard work we put into making our guests "stay" happy, comfortable and memorable--is working. It sure means a lot to us to know that all of that is appreciated. Also as I continue to say, it is the guests themselves that make the whole experience a success. Especially guests like you. Many thanks again. We really hope to see you again!

Myself, my husband and our 2 friends stayed here last weekend for a couples weekend away from the kiddos. What a wonderful B&B! Vicki is an absolutely wonderful hostess. Awesome breakfasts and night time snacks/desserts. Loved staying in the blue/yellow rooms with our friends. Made it very convenient to hang out at night after dinner. Definitely planning on staying here again. Felt like home!!!

Thanks so much for your quick review--and lovely one, at that! We, too, had such a great time with the four of you--and we are glad you are coming back. As I have said before, if we can make you comfortable and keep you full of baked goods--those are some of our goals! Can't wait til you come back in better weather and can sit on the decks and enjoy the lake view--and totally enjoy your vacation with us. Many thanks again--we loved having you here.

Our stay at Lake Valley Legends was tops, from beginning to end! Our hosts, Lou and Vicki, where the best! We were greeted upon arrival by Lou, who showed us to our rooms and gave us the grand tour of their lovely B & B! The rooms are welcoming, comfortable, beautifully decorated by Vicki, and include their own sitting areas, beverages and snacks! The morning breakfasts, cooked by Lou, were absolutely delicious, not to mention beautifully presented! Vicki had an array of yummy and tempting home baked cookies and other treats for snacking available throughout the day and evening in the kitchen, as well as water, tea, coffee and hot chocolate! Both Lou and Vicki were more than happy to help us with information on local doings, restaurants, park info, and directions. We loved that we could walk to town from their place and did so several evenings for dinner at the terrific Rooster Fish Brewery and Wild Flower Cafe. We found Lake Valley Legends a perfect jumping off spot for visiting the lakes, the parks, nearby Ithaca and Corning, and the wineries. This was our first visit to this beautiful area and we are already planning to return to Lake Valley Legends for another perfect getaway! We wouldn't stay anywhere else! Thank you Lou and Vicki for the wonderful long weekend!

My 2 siblings and I came together from OH and MA for a long weekend getaway and we stayed at the wonderful Lake Valley Legends B & B. We couldn't have asked for more welcoming hosts in owners Lou and Vicki, or more beautiful and comfortable accommodations. The comfy beds and antique furnishings of our Blue and Yellow room suite made us feel instantly at home, as did the owners! This B & B provided absolutely everything we could possibly need and more -- from the excellent breakfasts served up by Lou, to the sight-seeing advice he offered us, to just about anything we meant to pack but forgot at home! From our quiet location, we were able to walk to the town center of Watkins Glen to enjoy its shops and the terrific Rooster Fish Brewery & Wild Flower Cafe. We are already planning our next trip to stay at this terrific B & B!

Room Tip: The Blue and Yellow room suite where we stayed is charming and spacious and an excellent bargain. My...

"A", you are so sweet!!! I wish i could have spent more time with you all, but I know Lou does a fabulous job as a host. So glad you could take advantage of the many things to do around our area, our village is really wonderful. Thanks for all your kind praise for our B&B--we really love to make it special and comfortable for our guests--and we love it when someone appreciates it like you three did. You were super wonderful guests---PLEASE come back again!

Our children got us a 2 night stay at the Lake Valley Legends for our 60th Wedding anniversary and all I can say is WOW!! When we arrived at The B&B and I opened the front door all I said was WOW!! The first thing I noticed in the living room area was a electric fire place and two chairs and I said to myself I can see me reading my book there and I did!! Our room was beautiful and the bed was wonderful and I loved having a private bathroom, Louie and Vicky made sure we had homemade desserts and a wonderful assortment of teas and they are just Wonderful Hosts! We have a lot of friends out of town who come for a visit and I told them all they need to stay at Lake Valley Legends. My husband and I just fell in love with your B&B!! It is very clean and warm and cozy and you feel like you are at home! Thank you for the wonderful time we had at your B&B!

We stayed at Lake Valley Legends over MLK weekend. This was my second time in the area and we were traveling with friends. It was their first time in the area and they came with us on our recommendation. We really wanted to impress them and Lake Valley Legend helped us do that. We stayed in the German room and our friends stayed in the Paris room. We had the whole bottom floor to ourselves with a private shared sitting area. This was a great set up for us to catch up and relax.
The German room was very comfortable and very clean. We had control of the temperature in our room which I truly appreciate at a bed and breakfast.
Lou and Vicki were very warm and welcoming. There was always delicious food and snacks available and the breakfast was outstanding. They provided so many choices for breakfast that even trying a sample of each was too filling.
I will be going back to the area this summer and I will definitely stay at Lake Valley again.

We REALLY enjoyed this lake view B&B! Winter in Watkins Glen is a little (ok, a lot) different than the summer, but there are still plenty of wineries and shops open to make a long weekend out of it. Lou and Vicky were more than welcoming with snacks upon our arrival after a long drive; a great assortment of teas and goodies to help us wind down. The room (We stayed in the Lake View room) was clean and quiet, and there was even more goodies and little gifts up in the room when we checked in. Breakfast (quiche) was delicious! We'd like to head back in the spring and we will definitely check Lake Valley legends first for their availability when we decide to go!
