As I was born and raised 75 years ago in Montour Falls and wanted to stay in the best accommodations possible to relive some of my childhood. I knew of the old Barton home- stead, their new owners, Carol and Cathy, and the Cook Mansion became my first and only choice. We had originally made reservations for 3 nights and... More

This is truly a beautiful place to stay! I could admire it all day long! We felt at home and really appreciated the extra touches like a mini fridge, TV, Keurig coffee maker, wine glasses, pitcher of water, cookies and little chocolate bars on the pillows when we arrived. The breakfast was delicious and a good variety. There were many... More

Thank you for your great review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, it was a pleasure having you here and we hope to see you again.

We were reluctant to stay in any bed and breakfast as we usually stay in 5 star resorts or higher end hotels but we thought we would try something different. We were extremely satisfied with our accommodations and the atmosphere of the house and property. We stayed at the end of July and stayed in the colonial room. Our bathroom... More

We booked here based on the excellent reviews and very attractive web-site but were very disappointed in the reality of the place. In my opinion it is a run down version of the web-site. I will post photos that I believe speak for themselves. Out of politeness I kept it to three. The reaction upon arriving was "oh no, this... More

We thank you for your review, obviously you are entitled to your opinion, and we are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. Our Granada room has two brand new beds in it, Queen sized with brand new bed spreads and bed linen. It is in our opinion not at all fair to say everything is worn out,... More

My husband and I just spent three wonderful nights at the Cook Mansion. Carol and Catherine are the perfect hostesses. From the spotless rooms to the little touches that make you feel right at home, this is the perfect place to spend time while exploring the Finger Lakes.

My husband and I have stayed at several B&B's. Cooks Mansion was by far the most outstanding. The location is lovely with the sound of Montour falls to lull you to sleep. The Mansion is decorated beautifully with a south African touch. The breakfast was sumptuous!! And the Hostess Carol and her family were so gracious and friendly. We felt... More

Carol, and the family at the cook mansion were absolutely perfect for my bridal party this past weekend.

I enjoyed the getaway with my BF for our anniversary. Went there in early May. Staff was extremely friendly. It's was sweet, romantic and cozy. The only down side, it's was a little too early to see natures beauty. We only caught a glimpse of nature's potential. I imagine it would be even lovelier when the blooms are out.

We were welcomed upon arrival like old friends. Our room was opulently decorated and the whole mansion and decor are reminiscent of the Empire. A lot of souvenirs from past travels are displayed in the downstairs. Lots of charming places to sit and relax both indoors and out. You immediately feel like family, and Carol and Cathy are great hosts.... More
