“what a great stay!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Can't say enough about this place. Diane and Ken run a class act B and B. Do not look any further for your stay in Seneca Falls. We were greeted by Ken and he showed us around their beautiful and very clean home. I am a very picky person with regards to where i stay, i would not hesitate to recommend and or stay here again. It is a five minute walk away from downtown. A five minute drive to any lake. They have a beautiful front porch which we spent most of our down time on having drinks and playing cards or chatting to the other guests. A fridge is provided with water and ice if needed. Breakfast was to die for. I was full after the second course. Everything was purchased locally and prepared to perfection. The bed linens made for the best sleep. They spared no detail in making our stay a perfect one. Thank you Diane and Ken. Regards Rob and Gail Murdoch

Room Tip: our room faced the side of the house and only heard road noise after i woke in the am.

The moment you walk into Barrister's B&B (the name Barrister is taken from the original owner in late 1800's who was a barrister (attorney), you know there is depth of history in this home. The location is Senaca Falls, New York (the Finger Lakes Region) is a perfect "launch point" for getting to all the many Lakes Region attractions - vineyards, the lakes, quaint towns, places to cycle and run, just so many things to do! The hosts, Diane and Ken, greet you, give you a great orientation of the local attractions (and coupons!) and tell you some of the history of the property. Each room is unique and roomy, private baths, beautiful stained glass windows and carved wood throughout. Our hosts were gracious and always welcoming. We're not sure you could find better breakfast (seriously) or nicer people to stay. Our three days/nights @ Barrister's was just fantastic. Easy drive to spectacular NY State parks and falls that will leave you wanting to capture the sound of crashing water for moments of serenity. Easy drive to Ithaca, Watkins Glen, and any Finger Lakes location. To offer three words, "Just Go There." You will love Barrister's. We certainly did.

Room Tip: Any room has unique personality. The hosts will help you get comfortable quickly.

Ken and Diane create a wonderful ambiance and serve fabulous breakfasts. They know all the great places to go and have coupons for many of the wineries. We slept very well on luxurious linens and enjoyed our suite, Erin's retreat enormously

We spent a lovely July 4th weekend with Diane and Ken- they made us feel like old friends. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful- I am still working off the delicious calories :) Both Ken and Diane gave us wonderful advise on the area and we enjoying meeting our few guests over breakfast- We were two couples traveling so Erin's retreat and the cottage room had a connecting sitting room which was perfect for us to enjoy a private space- I would recommend Barrister's for a wonderful Finger Lakes experience

Our stay here was the best we've ever had at a B&B. The innkeepers, Ken and Diane were so helpful as we navigated our way around the Finger Lakes Region. They have developed close ties with many wineries and provided us with free tasting passes. What makes this a standout B&B are the breakfasts. Suffice it to say that they are truly gourmet. Our took, the Yellow Rose (Zu Zu's room) was comfortable and beautifully appointed. There was no detail that was overlooked to make our stay memorable. We will return!!!

Ken and Diane are delightful hosts at this historic, restored mansion convenient to many area attractions. The rooms are beautifully furnished, very clean, and the bed very comfortable. Thoughtful amenities include good room lighting, toiletries, and coffee and tea available in the evening. Three course, homemade breakfasts featuring local products were delicious! A wide front porch invites lounging and the B&B is only a short walk from several restaurants. Ken and Diane are very knowledgeable about the area and can provide suggestions for visiting the many area wineries, as well as restaurants throughout the region. We're looking forward to returning!

Room Tip: Each room is unique. Note: there is no swimming pool or fitness center.
