We have stayed on four of the Finger Lakes at various B & B's. Silver Strand on Cayuga is by far our favorite place for a number of reasons. First Maura and Skip are great hosts. The accommodations are very comfortable and tastefully done. The breakfasts are delicious and plentiful to prepare us for the active days we spend in... More

This large Victorian Bed and Breakfast is located right on the shores of Lake Cayuga. Our room was on the first floor and we could lay in bed and see the lake. We also had our own little private porch off the bedroom and the rooms upstairs had balconies with wonderful views of the lake.The bedroom was beautifully furnished and... More

Maura and Skip are the perfect hosts. Visiting the Silver Strand in the Finger Lakes is the highlight of our summer! The... More

I am so thrilled with my recent stay at the Silver Strand. The house has the best location. It is right on Cayuga lake with no obstructions of the beautiful view. On the property, we took advantage of their private dock using their andoranak style chairs and the lounge chairs too. On the wrap around porch, we enjoyed the hammock... More

We were lucky and booked this place last weekend of the year. The room was beautiful and had a gorgeous view from inside as well as a stunning view from the outside balcony. Maura and Skip were so helpful. She had a delicious breakfast prepared both mornings. The house itself is wonderful and each room is filled with special details.... More

This B&B is such a lovely getaway and probably one of the closest properties to the lake, across all the places you can stay around the Finger Lakes. We stayed in Room 1 which is on the 1st floor and has a beautiful view overlooking the water. There’s also a glass door that leads directly to the porch where you... More

In our immediate family, Mom having died in 2001 at 89, we have over a100 decendants with ties to Sheldrake, and I can't imagine how many other family's have ties to this wonderful little place, come...

We stayed at the Silver Strand for only one night, and wished we could've stayed longer! Maura is truly an artist of her craft, and made us feel right at home. The view of the lake was fabulous, and the breakfast couldn't have been better.

We sat on the balcony , drank wine and had some berries , what could you ask for more? The hotel manager Nora was very nice, and we had a great breakfast that included... More
