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.

Lovely bed and breakfast on the lake! The owners, Jim and Tammy, were terrific hosts. Everything exceeded our expectations...food, location, and accommodations. This made our anniversary even more special!

My wife and I make it a point to always stay at the Driftwood Inn when visiting the Finger Lakes. This charming B&B is right on Cayuga Lake in a private and quiet area where the only sounds you hear are the birds chirping and the waves lapping along the shore. Jim and Tammy make you feel so welcome that... More

...you don't get any closer to beautiful Cayuga Lake than at the Driftwood Inn. Tammy and Jim are gracious hosts and caretakers of this treasure which has been in their family for five generations. The breakfasts are made to order and wonderful. Local restaurants are very good and neighboring towns have great outdoors adventures awaiting. Schedule in time to just... More
