Lovely, historic house with a perfect location to access the Wine country and all events that the Lakes have to offer. I stayed during the harvest season for a week and I was glad I had found this great Inn. Fantastic stay, awesome breakfast and great company. What a way to get the day started! Mike and Tanya are the... More

The owners of this stately Greek Revival were kind enough to squeak an air mattress into our double room so we 3 – parents and very tall 16-year-old son – could share a room, keeping our travel costs down. The family is friendly and thoughtful and, although we are not generally B&B lodgers, made us very comfortable indeed. The pool... More

Travelling with friends to the Finger Lakes, we stayed at the Fox Inn for 3 nights in July. The Innkeepers are relaxed and welcoming. They were very helpful with advice and information about the area and sightseeing. The Inn is an historic home full of antiques. We stayed in the Lucy Hall Fox Bedroom which has a comfortable queen bed... More

My wife and I made our first trip to the Finger Lakes and the Fox Inn was great. The Innkeepers were helpful and kind. They even waited up when we were delayed because of traffic. Can not recommend enough.

A wonderful and quiet place to take a break. Excellent hospitality included outstanding made-to-order breakfast. Room was comfortable and clean. Nearby Keuka lake bike trail, Watkins Glen Gorge and numerous farm stands and wineries provide entertainment.

This was our second stay at The Fox Inn Bed & Breakfast. We stayed in the same room as our first visit - The Dorothy Fox. It is a more private room on the second floor towards the back of the inn. It has a shower and a bath tub in the bathroom. The room is cozy and the bed... More

So Much fun! My man had been working 7 days a week for almost 2 months and he surprised me on his day off by taking me to the Fox Inn. If you want a nice B&B with tons of antique shops and local restaurants near by this is the place, not to mention the lake is close too. The... More

Our family took over this large, roomy, home during a family reunion with our American cousins. We were warmy welcomed and told to use the entire house as or own. .. which we did. Pool games, watching the tennis matches and lounging in the historical rooms between visits to Keuka Lake, made our visit comfortable and homey. And the breakfasts!... More

We visit the Finger Lakes area at least once a year and stay at different Bed & Breakfast Inns. The Fox Inn was definitely the best B & B we stayed at in the area. Mike and Tanya were great hosts and we enjoyed their family and great breakfasts. Hope to stay there when we return in the future. Bill... More
