Absolutely beautiful setting directly on Cayuga Lake. We stayed in Room 5 and it was comfortable clean and updated with a king bed and big bathroom. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Breakfasts were delicious. We took one of the kayaks available to guests out on the lake and had an amazing time. Convenient to Ithaca, wine tours, Watkins... More

My mom booked this place for a weekend get away for the two of us. I had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before and I was skeptical. I'm not a person who really enjoys making friends on vacation and was worried about a lack of privacy. The Driftwood exceeded all of my expectations. Tammy and Jim were wonderful.... More

Jim and Tammy are two of the nicest people you will ever meet. They take great pride in their inn, but more importantly, you can tell that they love what they do. They are fantastic hosts. We actually arrived late Friday evening around 8. I had called ahead to inform Jim that we would be arriving a little late, and... More

We booked a four day stay here on the basis of many of the Trip Advisor reviews. When we first drove up, our hearts sank a bit as the building looked a bit shabby and in need of paint and power washing. However, all our trepidation was dissolved as soon as we met Jim and stepped out onto the porch.... More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Driftwood Inn. We loved it! Very comfortable, relaxing and lovely. Understated but homey and cozy in every respect. Beautiful views of the lake. We stayed in room 202 and it was wonderful to wake up and see the lake first thing every morning. Jim and Tammy are great hosts and the... More

The Driftwood Inn was perfectly situated near the lake with a wrap-around porch with comfy seating for relaxing and a sturdy dock for enjoying the lake breezes (see photo). Bedrooms were clean and clutter-free. Breakfast was great! The Driftwood Inn is minutes away from great wine-tasting (our reason for the visit). The owners were friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable about the area,... More

I found this B & B when checking TripAdvisor for a place in the Finger Lakes. I read all of the reviews and decided that this was the place to go. We went with another couple and all four of us couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. It's right on the water and has a huge porch along... More

We felt just like we were at home at this lovely B & B...to walk out on the dock with a glass of wine was just priceless...only topped by walking out on the dock with a cup of coffee in the morning waiting for the scrumptious breakfast Jim and Tammy prepared for us...lovely way to end a wonderful wine tasting...

This is a great B&B! It's well located, the owners are very friendly, and the place is well maintained. The view of the lake is gorgeous and if you do the wine tour by boat they can pick you up right there. I plan on going back one day.
