The Driftwood B&B is a perfect place to spend some time away in a beautiful setting with outstanding views of sunsets and water. Open the door off the breakfast area to swimming and boating, and a lovely open porch for reading and relaxing in a land of wineries and beautiful landscapes at every turn in the road. Jim and Tammy's... More

We stopped because of a recommendation. They were right. The B & B was roomy, clean and the best setting in the Finger Lakes. The view on the front porch is the best and a must see. The food is a 5 star breakfast. Enjoy - We did!

We have stayed at the Driftwood many times. It's comfortable, clean and charming. The verandah overlooking the lake is an excellent place to relax. Breakfast is hearty, and has one of the best fruit salads I've had at a B&B. The beach - made up of small pebbles - is memorable because of the many small dark stones with little... More

My Wife and I spent 2 nights at the Driftwood Inn. The Property and view of the lake was outstanding. Jim and Tammy were very welcoming and greeted you with a smile every morning. Sunsets and Sunrises were to die for and I would recommend this B&B to anyone heading to the finger lakes area.

This could not have been more perfect. The Driftwood is right on the lake and the views are gorgeous. I walked around the shore every morning, lounged in the best porch swing ever, ate delicious home cooked breakfasts (the blueberry pancakes were exquisite) and swam, paddle boarded and mostly floated around the lake. Jim and Tammy were lovely and very... More

At the last minute, we decided to visit the Finger Lakes and contacted the Driftwood Inn B&B. Tammy got right back to us and offered us accommodation for 1 night. We had few expectations but set off and arrived at the Driftwood just after 7PM in early August. What a fantastic spot! It is right on the lake and we... More

Driftwood Inn B&B was charming! The location was perfect, right on Cayuga Lake. The accommodations were great. We had the 'penthouse' Room 6 which was quite roomy, but the bathroom was small. Not a problem. We had a nice view of the lake from our bedroom. Even though we had to climb two flights of stairs to get to our... More

The Driftwood Inn is a 7-rooms family-run B&B, located on the shore of Cayuga lake, operating since 1946, in the middle of the wine trail. (It also have several cottages, but I can't comment on these) Hosts Tammy & Jim are very welcoming and attentive to their guests. The rooms are comfortable and clean; the overall decor is grandma-ish but... More

We arrived at the Driftwood Inn by boat, 'tho cars are surely the way folks usually arrive. Nevertheless, there is a fine (and long) pier with deep water that will will multiple boats with no problem. The Inn goes back - five generations back - to 1912. Owned from start to last by the same family, the latest owners -... More
