I'm wrapping up my stay at the Country Inn, still in awe of the spectacular view of the lake, valleys and beyond. Diane is the most special kind of host radiatinh authentic good energy vibes and a love of her extraordinary property. She was meant to share all this with those fortunate enough to land here. There are mystical little... More

After looking at this businesses website and the beautiful lake front view it had to offer i was quite excited for my stay. After getting there however i quickly realized I was mislead. The pictures on the website seem to be Photoshopped to seem closer to the lake than it truly is. Don't be fooled! This is by no means... More

The advertisements for this establishment are misleading. The Villa and Inn are not "lake front" - they are easily a few miles from Cayuga lake. There isn't even a walking trail to reach the lake from the inn. The rooms were dirty and the staff was very disorganized. Booking a room requires email and phone tag with the owner, who... More

My husband and I spent a long, September weekend in the Tuscany suite with a lovely view of the Cayuga Lake. The room was clean and spacious, with a comfortable bed. We had use of the kitchen and living room, neither of which we used. Basically, we were there only to sleep and were out all day enjoying Ithaca, which... More

Views are beautiful, but rooms were little dirty and had an electric heater in room to keep room warm. People were nice running the facility but the place needs some TLC and upkeep. Drive to Ithica takes about 15 min and 15-20 min from a couple wineries. Would not Stay here again.

My wife and I stayed three nights at the Cayuga Lakefront Inn 2, in the French Country suite, and had a wonderful time. Dianne, the owner, was wonderful, warm, real. The room was beautiful and spacious, with a sitting area and full bath, and lovely distant view of Cayuga. Everything was very clean! We enjoyed Ithaca for several days, and... More

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
