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.

Having never stayed at a Bed & Breakfast, my wife and I were unsure of what to expect. Let me tell you that my expectations were not only met but also far exceeded. The location alone was among one of the best that I have stayed at as far as lakefront. This Inn sits right on the lake almost 20... More

Our hosts, Jim and Tammy, were so laid back and accommodating, it was very relaxed! Lovely room overlooking Cayuga Lake, with a wine boat tour that left from the dock immediately next door to us, which we also took. This B&B is clean and beautifully decorated, and priced about the same as most others in the area. Our host gave... More

We spent the labor day weekend at the Driftwood, our 3rd Finger Lake B&B, and found a keeper. We had room 202 for three nights and the views, cool lake breezes and even a spectacular lightning show could not be beat. We loved spending time on the dock and in the crystal clear water. A pair of kayaks provided more... More

If you are planning a trip to the finger lakes, put the Driftwood Inn at the top of your list. On a quiet road, the beautiful waterfront home is the perfect location for a quiet getaway, yet, it is still just a short drive to the "wine trails". Our homemade breakfasts were delicious, and Jim and Tammy both made us... More

Driftwood Inn is a hidden gem. If you enjoy a relaxing atmosphere, beautiful views, great homemade breakfasts & the best innkeepers by far, then Driftwood Inn is definitely for you!!! Located near several wineries and a short drive from Ithaca, Watkins Glen and Corning NY. The Inn is right on the shore of Cayuga Lake. Love this place, it's our... More

A Great get-away for couples! We traveled to the Finger Lakes from Saratoga Springs, NY, with freinds. We were directed to the Driftwood Inn by the owner of the The Thirsty Owl Wine Company, Ted Cupp. Ted recently opened tasting room and bistro in our home town, Saratoga Springs. Ted was "Spot-on" with this recommendation! The weather was chilly and... More

If you have a busy and/or stressful life, spending time at Driftwood Inn is just what the doctor ordered. Besides offering rooms in the main house that include breakfast, there are houses with 2-4 bedrooms. They are fully stocked and even have barbecues and the charcoal you will need. You are steps away from beautiful Cayuga Lake where you can... More

My husband and I stayed 3 nights over Labor Day Weekend 2013. It was peaceful, serene and absolutely beautiful. The proprietors' Jim and Tammy fill the house with a feeling of warmth and kindness and made us feel very comfortable and welcome. I highly recommend this B&B if you are planning a trip to the finger lake region :)

Spent 4 nights in August and enjoyed more than the first time we were here, also helped that we had a longer visit. Very relaxed atmosphere and a lot of that goes to Jim and Tammy. Amazing location (love pre-breakfast kayaking!) on the lake spending hours on the back porch. Great breakfasts as well! Only complaint is very spotty wi-fi
