We made a reservation about a week ahead and didn't have our first choice of room available, so we reserved room #3, lake view with king bed. The room was spacious enough as was the bathroom. I prefer a head board which this room does not have, and I also prefer easy to deal with (i.e. intuitive) showers. This has... More

My husband and I decided to celebrate our anniversary at the Brewster Inn in Cazenovia. One word describes the food and service ... Fabulous !!!! We made our reservations earlier the same day. In spite of the short notice, we were seated at a table next to the window overlooking the beautiful lake. The service was the best we have... More

Don't stay in room 23. It sits just 30' from the highway and if the noise of the cars doesn't disturb you, the head lights shining through thin blinds, or the foot fall noise from the room above will. Nice people. Great location. Mediocre breakfast.

Thank you for the feedback. We are so sorry to hear that you did not have the experience you hoped for. The carriage house is normally very quiet, as Cazenovia is a quiet town. We hope you consider coming back again to join us for dinner or an overnight in the main building. If you are a light sleeper we... More

We had a lovely dinner with drinks. The view of the lake from the terrace is stunning. Our dinner was very good. Everyone had fish (of course). The service was exceptional. We did not stay here but overheard positive comments from guests.

Thank you so much for the nice words! We do get some great fish here. The tuna is flown overnight from Hawaii (less than 8 hours out of water). We go to great lengths to get the best so we appreciate that you notice! Also -- have you tried the mussels! They are huge! And -- just an FYI, the... More

This is a very nice place to stay on a large property at the lake's shoreline. A beautiful old inn decorated nicely, rooms very comfortable, free internet, great staff and excellent food in the dining room.

I was attending a wedding in Cazenovia and found this an ideal place to stay as the reception was at the Cazenovia Club just next door. The lakeside setting is very pleasant with an extensive lawn sloping down to the shoreline. I managed to reserve room 1 in the corner tower of the main house, an old summer mansion for... More

Our room had a queen bed with a canopy, looking out over Cazenovia Lake, OK, my wife needed a ladder to get into it after a bottle + of wine, but once in bed, it was comfortable and we slept like logs. Shower was a little complicated, but lots of hot water. Very good AC system. Would come back, maybe... More

We stayed 2 nights in the "Carriage House", Room 34. This was a large room with faded furnishings, a rock hard bed with Motel 6 quality linens, and staff who seemed not to care.

So sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We appreciate any feedback you have aimed to make our establishment a better place. We however, don't appreciate the insensitive negative comments made towards our staff who works very hard to accommodate all guests. Bullying and threats for discounts will not be tolerated. More
