We spent a few days at the William Smith Inn and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The Innkeepers are outstanding hosts. They make you feel so welcome and provide a great deal of insight into this small and quaint town in upper New York. Great advise on things to see and restaurants. They never let us down. The Inn itself takes... More

My parents and I visited the finger lake on August 16. Usually B&B won't accept one night reservation, but we are very lucky to have one night in William Smith Inn. The house is huge and beautiful, we stayed in Statesmen, it has a queen size bed and a twin size daybed which is perfect for three of us, and... More

I stayed at the WS inn while dropping off my son at Hobart. Theresa and David are quintessential hosts. This is the place you imagine when you think about an historic B&B in a quant town. The house is a reminder of a more gentile time with the soaring ceilings, transoms and floor-to-ceiling windows. It is decorated beautifully and all... More

Back again for another wonderful stay. We love every room at this historic, lovingly renovated beautiful property. Sitting out on the front porch with a bottle of wine is bliss and the home cooked breakfast is presented beautifully and is delicious. Can't wait to come back!!!

Stayed in this inn while passing through. Lovely inn, beautifully appointed. We very rarely stay in a B&B, but decided to give this one a shot based on the reviews. My only disappointment was the breakfast. Since our visit was "during the week", we were not offered the full breakfast that I was so hoping to complete our stay. All... More

An almost perfect review! We always strive to be the best. Thank you for your comments about our B & B. Our website states that, during the week, I offer a served continental breakfast that consists of fresh fruit, yogurt, granola, local breads and/or a baked good. If a guest has another request, I can most often accommodate. Upon arrival,... More

Perfect place to stay in Geneva or for that matter in the Finger Lakes. Rooms are all different, very quiet and beautifully decorated. Theresa, loved her from our first visit, couldn't be more enjoyable, accomodating or a more perfect hostess. She looks to every detail and it shows. Highly recommend!

We just had a great time in Geneva. The area is beautiful, and so is this bed and breakfast. It is in a stunning old house with a lot of history that still retains some authenticity to the period in which it was built. Theresa, the innkeeper, is a terrific person who will help you find restaurants, vineyards, historical sites... More

My husband and I wanted to celebrate our 20th anniversary in the lovely city of Geneva and had never stayed in a bed and breakfast before. We saw the review for The William Smith Inn and felt like this would be perfect. We were so NOT disappointed! Theresa and David are just the nicest people and they provided the perfect... More

My husband and I booked a quick get a away and didn't want the standard hotel experience...we are experienced and well traveled...and we do enjoy good wine alongside fresh, healthy food. Theresa helped us put an itinerary together, suggested wonderful local restaurants, allowed us the flexibility of using her full kitchen ( we have minor dietary restrictions) which made our... More
