A beautiful historic house on lovely grounds with great views of Lake Seneca. We stayed 3 days midweek and enjoyed very personalized attention from Maria and John. They have taken a Victorian "summer cottage" keeping it's original character, while updating it to make it light and comfortable for today. Their advice on activities in the area was just right for us. Hoping to visit there again!
