We stayed here with our pooch. Had a wonderful room in the Victorian home,with highly deluxe bath. Enjoyed a wonderful dinner, owner, very welcoming and friendly. A great experience. Porch overlooks bucolic grounds. Also, very close to downtown Groton, for a nice stroll. Highly recommend.

Just had a girls weekend in the Ithaca area to do some hiking and birding. It was so nice to come back to the comforts of Benn Conger Inn every evening. We had three rooms in the Victorian Cottage and they couldn't have been more comfortable or beautifully decorated and each room had a fireplace as well. Douglas and Peter,... More

I grew up in Groton and have lived out of state for 30 years. I've stayed at the Ben Conger Inn twice now, and it is a great experience. Peter is an outstanding host, and just plain fun to talk to. The house is just great, and has been made comfortable and welcoming. The food is excellent, and you won't... More

Groton is my home town but I haven't lived there in 40+ years. The old saying is that you can't go home again but you can if you stay at the Inn. We were there for a surprise party for my brother, and 8 family members stayed at the Benn Conger. It was amazing. We started every morning with a... More

My family and I stayed at the Benn Conger Inn in Groton, NY for the first time in a few years, and the Inn remains friendly, warm and very comfortable. The Inn is very convenient to Ithaca and Cortland, NY, and surrounding sites. Parking is a few steps from the front door of the inviting main house where you are... More

My husband and I recently spent the night here in celebration of our 2-year wedding anniversary. The main house is beautiful and the Victorian house adjacent to the main property was cozy and comfortable (we stayed in the yellow room complete with Jacuzzi tub and balcony). We had dinner at the restaurant that evening - the prime rib was to... More

This Inn is a jewel hiding in plain sight in the small town of Groton, NY. It is nicely situated between Ithaca and Cortland and among the finger lakes (think wine tours). Peter's vast culinary skill is on display with every breakfast and dinner and may be exceeded only by his genuinely warm and accommodating personality when working with guests.... More

I stayed here over New Students Weekend as no rooms were available in Ithaca. The inn is about a 15 minute drive from North Campus. The owner, Peter was very personable and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Definitely would stay here again as it is a welcome break from the crowds near Cornell campus.

This was a perfect setting for my daughters wedding! We rented out both houses for two nights. The rooms were clean and beautiful with fireplaces and jacuzzi tubs. Peter was so wonderful to work with. He took care of all the details and was very approachable with any questions. The staff was amazing, friendly and fun! They even danced with... More

We arrived during dinner on a Thursday night but Peter popped out of the kitchen to welcome us. Spent five nights in a beautiful room decked out with comfort and a big wrap-around porch overlooking the peaceful back yard. The rooms were freshened up each day. Breakfast each morning was delightful even when we were the only guests in the... More
