We spent one night at aunt Louise. The BB is just on the lake Skanealetes of the finger lakes. Dale and Louise were very warm and welcoming. The house is beautiful. The rooms are very comfortable. The location excellent. The breakfast is superb. We really had a wonderful stay.

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Aunt Louise's, and felt both welcomed as family, but treated as honored guests, a tough combination to manage, but Louie and Dale did it masterfully. And the breakfast each morning was superb! We look forward to returning and highly recommend a stay at this wonderful B&B.

Thank you Louise and Dale for a lovely stay at your beautiful house. The surroundings were beautiful (thank you also for the tips you gave us as to what places we should visit). We'll definitely return to Aunt Louise's Lake House next time we visit the Finger Lakes region. We highly recommend it.

We were gifted by our son with a weekend to Aunt Louise's. Most couples would have likely waited for warm weather to enjoy Skaneateles and the lake but...after endless weeks of snow and cold, we jumped at the first chance for a change of scenery! We had a fantastic time just relaxing at our leisure! Louise and Dale provide carefree... More

My husband and I visited in the fall. We had a great time. Louise and Dale are great hosts, we have stayed there a couple of times and were never disappointed. Dale greeted us with a warm fire and a glass of apple cider. Louise and Dale serve a great breakfast and they go out of their way to please.... More

Our friends recommended this wonderful bed and breakfast to us, and now we will be telling our other friends about it too. From the moment we arrived, we felt comfortable and right at home. Dale and Louise kept the fire going, which we really enjoyed after a snowy weekend. The breakfasts they served were wonderful, and the table settings were... More

This is our 3rd stay in as many years. Very fun friendly couple (Dale&Louise) run this romantic B&B. very well appointed to the smallest detail. You won't be disappointed. And cannot say enough about breakfast, from the beautiful antique table settings, flowers grown by the owners to the actual food...as they say, presentation is Everthing but the food is outstanding....

Dale and Louise are charming host/hostess. They take great pride in every aspect of their B&B.; the charming decor, comfortable rooms and brilliant breakfasts. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Dale and Louise during our breakfasts and learning about why they love the Finger Lakes area so much. Would return in a heartbeat if in the area again.

This place was nothing like I expected from the other reviews. The hosts (especially Louise) were not that friendly and the house was nothing special. There were no amenities......I had to ask for something cold to drink . Other places we stayed at had coffee, tea, cold drink available at all times. They had nothing here except for a decanter...

Hosts Louise and Dale are very warm and friendly people. They like visiting and are interested in all of their guests. The house has only three rooms so it is cozy and away from the mainstream - about four miles down the east side of the lake from downtown. The breakfasts are not at a fixed hour but rather when...
