We went to Oswego for my daughther's admission. We called last minute and was so thankful that they have a room. We were the only guests for the night, so instead of putting all three of us in 1 room, they offered the other room for free for my daughter to use. I figured that was not fair, for them,... More

I stayed at Serendipity because my daughter and I were looking at the college. We loved the decor in the old house, enjoyed the owners and had two wonderful breakfasts. Would definitely recommend staying there.

I have stayed at Serendipity many times since it opened and I have enjoyed every moment. The home is an 1800's Federalist style home so, being a bit of a history nut, this was really appealing to me. Behind the home is a forest with lots of trails to hike and there's an old orchard that the trails pass thru.... More

My dad, sister, and brother-in-law stayed here in July while visiting my Grandparents in Oswego! We had a great time and the breakfast was great each morning. Ellen and her husband are wonderful hosts and she adjusted our stay to include my sister and brother-in-law last minute. Ellen also gave us direction for a great running route along the lake...

Not clean. Kitchen is in a garage that smells like death. So don't eat the food. Has potential to be nice... but it just is not. Also, there are cats. Nice to be close to college, but I'd rather be a few minutes down the road and clean.

The attached garage has been converted to a commercial kitchen. We were absolutely booked that day and hadn't completed the clean up process. There was an old cat on the premises that was ill. Maybe that's where the odor came from. We're sorry you found our B&B un acceptable. Since the demise of the old cat, there are no cats... More

I would love to give this place more stars, but the fact is the mattress was the kind of thing you find in a college dorm room...coated in vinyl and bad for your back, and the comforter and sheets were scratchy and cheap. Those factors aside, the people that run the inn are great, and the food and breakfast provided... More

We're not sure you stayed at Serendipity. There are no plastic covers on any of our beds. Two of our rooms share a bathroom but sufficient guest bathrobes are provided in each bedroom and as one would expect the rates for these rooms are lower. We also use high thread count bed linnens to make your stay as luxurious feeling... More

We booked a room and the owner never sent a confirming email, even after many tries to contact her. Out of sheer frustration and concern, we cancelled our reservation and booked elsewhere. What a shame. This place looks lovely.

Our internet access and WIFi has been upgraded with new routers. Thus far there have not been any incidents such as you described. We're sorry you had the problems you did and offer you a free nights stay if you try us again. The management has also been changed and we sincerely hope our guest's experiences will reflect those written... More

If you want a cozy, small, quiet and charming B&B with personality and a lovely host couple, then you should certainly choose Serendipity in Oswego. Though, so far Ellen has only committed herself for running the place for a year, and the hosts mean everything for a small B&B. Ellen’s breakfast will be remembered for a very long time. It...

We were thrilled to have this be our first BandB experience. Kathy was like an old friend welcoming us into her lovely home her away from home, her kind heart was evident in the details throughout the house and room. My husband is still amazed at the awesome breakfasts served!! We loved the location, close to campus and town. Thank... More

B+ B Owners Darell and Kathy were super nice from the first moment when they literally came out of the house to help us with our bags! The breakfast was wonderful and on the mornings when we went fishing on Lake Ontario, Kathy packed "Breakfast to Go" for us!! Overally super friendly, great guest experience and you simply won't go... More
