This B&B is beautifully decorated and has been restored quite elegantly. The rooms are very comfortable with a feel of plushness. Our breakfasts were delicious with attention to the chef using local farm sourced ingredients. We found the hosts to be a nice blend of giving us space, yet there when we needed them! Very comfortable large spacious rooms to... More

Kelly and Max, it was great to have your group here with us last week. We are gratified to provide a comfortable place for small groups like yours to get away, relax, and catch-up. And it seems that the visit to the Curtiss Museum was insightful and productive. We look forward to hearing about how it all comes together. Happy... More

The Black Sheep Inn and Spa is an amazing Bed and Breakfast and the owners Deb and Mark make you feel like you are at home. The work they have put into the Inn to make it welcoming to their quest was well thought out, it is a very cozy home. The breakfast was delicious and unique each morning. They... More

Thanks Rachel, it was fun having you and Tori here to celebrate her birthday. We really enjoy helping people make the most of their time away, and special occasions are no exception. And there is no better place to celebrate a 21st birthday, than sampling the local Finger Lakes beer and wine. Happy Holidays! M&D More

My best friend and I wanted to plan a relaxing "girls" weekend full of wine, pampering and laid-back fun. We decided on the Girlfriend's Getaway package and couldn't have asked for a better experience than the one we received at The Black Sheep Inn! From the moment we pulled up and were warmly greeted by Deb, to the delicious breakfasts,... More

Ten professional, middle-aged, girlfriends arrived...planning on spending time laughing, "wining", and celebrating for the weekend. We pulled up to a beautiful restored old home, only to be greeted immediately by the caretaker who told us we could not park our car in an area perfect for just unloading. We explained that we were just removing our items after a four... More

Unfortunately, there are no public forums to review guests, so we are very thankful for this review for it gives us an opportunity to recount the most disrespectful group of guests we have experienced in our almost 10 years as professional innkeepers. And the most reprehensible part is that one of the members of the group is an innkeeper herself.... More

We recently came back to the Black Sheep Inn after a 6 year gap (since we live in Phoenix!) This was our first time returning to a B&B, and we did it because our original visit was so memorable and special. Deb and Marc are the perfect hosts. They're interesting and fun to talk to, and extremely helpful about suggesting... More

I loved everything about our weekend here. My partner apparently planned the whole trip months before it happened. I had no idea. I thought were just going to the Finger Lakes for kayaking and hiking and I didn't even know where we were going to stay. I was so excited when we arrived at The Inn. The building, rooms, and...

We were at Keuka Lake for a friend's wedding. We chose The Black Sheep Inn partly because of it's convenient location (the wedding was at Heron Hill, just up the road). We were also intrigued by the idea of staying in a beautifully restored historic home, and by the promise of thoughtfully prepared, locally sourced gourmet breakfasts. The inn more... More

We can't begin to describe the magic of the Black Sheep Inn.
