My friends and I met there for one night. There was easy access to Ithaca this is true and a beautiful view of the lake. We agreed upon a time for dinner with Diane. We arrived promptly and there was another couple dining as well. Dinner took 3 hours! We waited for at least 45 minutes for the salad, which... More

Our stay at Cayuga Lake Front Country Inn's was an unexpectedly magic one. The house offers much more than whatever we could expect.... Including a romantic hot tub at night outside in the garden under the stars!! Beautiful scenery in front of the lake. Great walk with no need of car to the closest of the waterfalls....(Ithaca and Cayuga Lake... More

My husband and I recently had the wonderful experience of staying at Cayuga Lakefront Bed & Breakfast. The inn has several locations and all have wonderful views of Lake Cayuga. When we walked into our room I felt like I was definitely in a European villa. The room was spacious and clean and the bed linens were beautiful. Our room... More

This little slice of heaven is truly an oasis. We had a wonderful get away week end to celebrate my birthday and the room(s) that the owner Diane put us in was truly a wonderful gift! It was 2 rooms joined by a hallway but the room we slept in had the king size bed facing the the spectacular view... More

I'm not sure if I liked it or not. Never got to go there. Played a phone, and email tag with the owner. Never got a straight answer to any of my questions. Pictures don't really match the location and price and standard ratio seems to be a little bit off. At the end of it I had to reschedule... More

Two huge thumbs-up. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to book again. We had two kids with us, and we all slept very comfortably in a partitioned room. Wonderfully peaceful and quiet. -Peter A

I so enjoyed the spectacular views of Cayuga Lake from the many windows, grounds, & gardens of this quaint 3-story b&b. Elegant furnishings & fabrics reminiscent of France & Italy added to its charm. Delightful breakfasts, great wifi, hospitable staff - all these pluses made my stay a truly relaxing retreat and helped to put the Cayuga Lakefront Inn at... More

This was the first stop of our trip, and after 5 hours of driving we arrived at the B and B, and there was not a soul there (even though we arrived in the narrow arrival window)! We waited around for 40 minutes and called the phone number repeatedly, but no one answered. Starving and travel-weary, we left and got... More

My wife and I had a very nice weekend at this B & B. However, I pictured it, (based on the name), as being on Lake Cayuga. It is not. It has a very nice view of the Lake, but if you picture walking along the shores of the Lake, forget it. Diane is very nice and runs a good,... More

This bed and breakfast was a bit like visiting an eccentric aunt. While overall we had a good experience, it would not be to everyone's taste. But if you bring an open mind and some allergy medication (our room was a bit dusty, and full of fabrics, ribbons, books, paper, many dust catchers) you are in for a different experience.... More
