We stayed in the Lucy Fox room for two nights during our trip to the finger lakes. Mike the owner was a great host. Breakfast is HUGE and delicious. We had the cinnamon roll--which lives up to its name as the Mother of All Cinnamon Rolls, the creme brulee french toast, the "fox trotta"--Mike's version of a frittata which probably... More

We stayed in the Dorothy Fox suite and it was a perfect accommodation for our race weekend as I was participating in the Peasantman Triathlon. My wife 30 months pregnant and I couldn't have had a better more relaxing stay than we did over the weekend. The pancake breakfast was absolutely amazing and perfect for the day before a race!...

My fiancé and I had a wonderful overnight stay at this location. Penn Yan is a very quaint, charming town with a surprising amount of things to offer. We arrived late at night (around 9:15 PM) and were pleasantly surprised to still be able to meet Mike. After a brief and pleasant conversation, we were escorted to our room, which... More

We originally booked for 4, but ended up staying here for 5 nights the last week of June, 2015. The owners Tanya and Mike, along with Mike's mom Renee, are very attentive, yet not intruding, and the gourmet breakfasts are the best with a lot of choices, making accommodations for special diets. The location in downtown Penn Yan is ideal... More

We recently spent two nights and it was a perfect trip. Tanya, Mike and Renee were helpful and very friendly. Our room was great and the house filled with antiques. The menu for breakfast was very extensive and delicious. We could walk easily to restaurants and shops and drive around the lake to wineries. We met their small boys since... More

Perfect! Our family reunion here could not have been better. Tanya, Mike and Tanya's mom were great hosts -- very sweet and accommodating. The rooms are all nice with updated bathrooms (a bonus). The common areas easily accommodated 11 of us and the pool table, games, and puzzles kept every age group happy. The front porch was lovely for sitting... More

Spent 2 nights at this wonderful Inn. Both Tanya and Mike were very accommodating and breakfast each morning was excellent! My wife and I came stayed along with our teenage son and we reserved the William Fox 2-bedroom suite so my son could have his own room. Our bathroom was across the hall, which was not an issue at all.... More

We showed up late without reservations and Tanya very kindly found us a room. The house was beautiful and breakfast was great. We were made to feel like old friends. I would definitely stay again if I'm back in the area.
