My husband and I had never stayed at a B & B. Fortunately for us, our first experience was at the Driftwood on beautiful Cayuga Lake. The view from the front porch is spectacular with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. Our hosts Jim and Tammy were so friendly and welcoming and the breakfasts they prepared and served were delicious! We felt... More

My wife and I found the Driftwood Inn Bed and Breakfast beautiful at first glance. The views are wonderful around the Inn and across the lake, and the owners put it over the top in hospitality and good conversation. The room was very comfortable and had the feel of visiting a dear friend’s home. The locale was awesome such that... More

We've been visiting the Cayuga Lake area for many years but had never stayed at Driftwood but I'm glad we found the place. Very nice B&B with very friendly and attentive owners...Jim & Tammy. Great location. The Inn is steps from Cayuga Lake and located right in the heart of the Wine Trail. Great place for a very relaxing get-away.

My husband and I spent three nights at the Driftwood. Our room was well-appointed and comfortable. The breakfasts were very good. The view from the wide back porch was amazingly beautiful. We thoroughly enjoyed morning coffee and evening wine sitting on that veranda. The hosts were a friendly and helpful couple. I highly recommend the Driftwood Inn B and B... More

The DIBB is a near perfect place to stay. The location with east/north/west views of the lake are amazing - sunrise in the morning and sunset in the evening. The rooms are spacious/large and most have views of the lake. The landlord and landlady, Jim and Tammy, are friendly and solicitous about your every need. I'm not a B&B kind... More

This place was absolutely awesome! Right on the lake, great views, excellent breakfasts, very friendly hosts, very clean rooms, nice local attractions, good kayaking, very serene getaway! The price was very reasonable and well worth it. The only thing I could possibly see someone having an issue with was the internet/cell service. Never had good reception on wifi or tmobile... More

This is by far one of the best B&B experiences I have had. A charming house perched on the edge of Cayuga Lake with a stunning view . You will find everything you need in the rooms that are very comfortable and clean. The Hosts, Tammy and Jim are so friendly and welcoming as well, they made us feel right... More

Tammy & Jim were very accommodating and so pleasant. Nice winery was walking distance from Inn. Kayaks available for guests - loved that! Excellent breakfasts! Beautiful view of lake and lovely porch to sit out at night and enjoy the peaceful surroundings!

We stayed in the Cozy Cottage for 7 nights. So we cannot comment on breakfast since it was not included and we only saw our hosts once. This cottage houses 2 people at the most. It is super small and spaces are tight. We could get past this since we were out hiking different state parks during most of our... More

Jim and Tammy were great host and hostess. They treated us like family. Fun to be around, a lot energy and very youthful. Jim's breakfast were incredible. The view was break taking and the best view on the lake. The rooms were beautiful. Peaceful time on the porch. Close too many NYS wineries.
