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

OMG! Teresa is amazing! The minute you meet her, she is a friend forever. Our stay was perfect because she is the perfect hostess! She is so willing to make your stay enjoyable by either providing information about the area or purchasing a specific tea for breakfast! She is a good cook as our breakfasts were freshly made, ample, and... More

My husband and I just returned from a honeymoon in the Finger Lakes and we stayed at the William Smith Inn for three nights. Our hosts David and Theresa Gage could not have been more hospitable. Theresa gave us the scoop on good wineries to visit and David took us to see the nearby historic observatory. The house itself has... More

This is a beautiful Inn with beautiful accommodations, and a convenient location. The owners Theresa and David are wonderful, they are full of information about the area and really know how to make guests feel right at home, they are also very accommodating. Last but not least, the breakfast was fantastic. Highly recommended. We will be staying there again!

This is our second visit to The William Smith Inn. We thought our stay was perfect on our first visit, but this visit was even better because our room was *even larger* than our first stay three years ago. The home is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, located ideally, and owned by an absolutely wonderful innkeeper and her husband. Theresa is... More

We enjoyed one night at the William Smith Inn and yet, I feel like Theresa is an old friend. While the decor is period to the time of the inn, it has a modern, and impeccably clean feel. The details in the maintenance of this home as well as the attention to details to provide all the amenities to make... More

We have stayed at this Inn three times. It is beautiful. Theresa is an excellent innkeeper. The room, amenities and breakfast are fabulous! Our daughter is a student at HWS and Theresa invited her for breakfast....a special treat for a college student! Everything about our stay was perfect! <3

Gorgeously restored historic home with a "wow" factor in every room. Theresa is an outstanding host -- very attentive, a great source of info on local sites and activities, an excellent cook, and hilariously funny! The rooms are huge and beautifully appointed. We felt completely relaxed and at home. Theresa recommended a couple of restaurants which were truly outstanding. Geneva... More

Theresa is terrific and always works to provide a fantastic overall experience. Breakfast is homemade and delicious and there is nothing better than sitting on the front porch with a bottle of wine. Love everything about it.

My wife and I stayed for one night on our way home from Toronto. The hosts were delightful, the room comfortable and filled with historic touches, and breakfast delicious. Geneva is one of the gateways to the Finger Lakes wine country and is a convenient stopping off place.
