We celebrated our weekend by visiting a town that had meaning to us and the experience we had at the Fox Inn made it even better. The personal touch and friendly interactions from the owners truly made the stay that much more wonderful. The house is beautiful and maintained at a high level, it felt as if we were visiting...

We celebrated our wedding anniversary there back in September. A beautifully decorated neoclassical home,comfortable rooms,huge scrumptious breakfasts, friendly people. We couldn't ask for more. This will be our home base for future Finger Lake excursions.

My fiance and I stayed here for a weekend in January for a brief getaway in wine country. There were a few other couples staying who were all very friendly and fun. The owners were fantastic and accommodating, and offered several suggestions for us as we toured the wineries in the area. The breakfasts were outstanding - the foxtrattas, creme... More

My wife and I recently stayed in the Dorothy Fox room at the Fox Inn. The weekend was cold but the room was warmed by a gas fireplace which kept us toasty. The house sits downtown on Main Street and has the stately elegance of homes of a bygone era. The hosts Mike and Tanya are delightful people with two... More

We spent a wine tasting weekend at The Fox Inn with some friends. Everything was wonderful. The Inn Keepers were fantastic. Breakfast was outstanding! Tremendous value for the money. Would certainly return to The Fox Inn when we do our next wine tasting tour.

Great location right in the town of Penn Yan. The house was beautiful and enjoyed the stories Sue (Mike's mom) told us the following day after a wonderful breakfast. She was even able to accommodate my gluten free diet which was much appreciated. A small refrigerator located in one of the common rooms held our cheese we had purchased during... More

Location was great for visiting the Keuka and Seneca Lake attractions (wineries, restaurants and landmarks). The accommodations were very nice and the common areas were incredible. The breakfast selection was wide and had very generous portions, but most importantly they were delicious. We will definitely stay here again.

At a friend's recommendation we stayed at the Fox Inn while visiting the Finger Lakes. Having never stayed a B&B before we were very happy with our accommodations and the well prepared breakfasts. The exceptional service provided by Renee and Mike made our stay very enjoyable. After enjoying a very good breakfast we often spent at least an hour socializing... More

Everyone was so friendly and helpful. First time we ever stayed in a B&B so nothing to compare it to, but we were impressed. Located in the heart of town, so you can walk to local bars and restaurants. The whole town is friendly. Enjoyed having breakfast with the other guests and hearing their stories and recommendations. Just a great... More
