I was looking for a B & B for a couple of days to relax before we ventured to the Adirondacks in New York. What a find!! Tanya and Mike were wonderful hosts. Anything we needed was provided, including complimentary coffee, wine, cold drinks anytime of the day. Our room was very comfortable. It was great to meet their family,... 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

An 1820 Inn in a great location - the top of Keuka Lake and in among a couple of very good restaurants. The owners were very attentive, the breakfasts not to be believed and our room was large (Wm. Oliver Suite), comfy, with a new bath and a gas burning fireplace. Quite a visit.

Great historic B&B in an easy-to-find, central location. Very warm owners who serve a fantastic breakfast. We enjoyed having coffee and sitting on their front porch at night, watching the Amish drive by in their buggies. We stayed in a room with a jetted tub that was very nice after a day of hiking! Access to ice, cold drinks, wine,... More

The Fox Inn is nestled in the small village of Penn Yan. It was a lovely historical building loaded with charm. The owners, Tanya and Mike, were wonderful! The rooms were clean, beds were comfy and the breakfast was huge! Keuka Lake was about a mile away. The Keuka wine trail was great with two standouts being The Ravine and... More

I used trip advisor to find B&B, and I picked a wonderful place with a great loft. This place had everything you could think of. Great amenities and luxurious courts. I am a lucky man to find such a great B&B. The food was delicious, the owners were inviting. It truly made me and my girlfriend feel right at home...stay... More

The inn keepers are both friendly and genuinely kind. The set up of the inn is very homey with a "living room" area and a pool table area. Games and puzzles are available too. When we went to these rooms, the other guests were just as friendly as the inn keepers, it was like hanging our with friends. We opted... More

I liked most of everything about our stay BUT our room (Dorothy) was above the InnKeepers quarters and the noise of slamming doors and their young son running and fussing below us echoed through the room each morning. The Inn is beautiful, decorated nicely, plenty of books and games to occupy you. The room was clean and comfortable as was... More
