We traveled to the Finger Lakes for a weekend getaway and found the Ben Hunt on Trip Advisor. Since we had not stayed at a B&B before, we were not sure what to expect. What we found when we arrived was a welcoming room with some fantastic cookies :) Beth and Buddy made us feel at home and we had... More

We stayed at Benjamin Hunt inn for 5 nights while enjoying a relaxing vacation in teh Finger Lakes Area. We were within walking distance to many attractions (Watkins Glen State Park), as well as several restaurants. Beth does a great job of making you feel at home and cooks up a great and very filling breakfast every morning. The price... More

I loved our stay at the Benjamin Hunt Inn! First, the price. Very reasonable rate for a room. I searched all other B&Bs and this was the best rate when compared to the things offered at the B&Bs. Second, the food. We were extremely pleased with the breakfast offerings. Multi-course meals with different options each day - eggs, bacon, french... More

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed at the Ben Hunt Inn, and we always have a lovely time while we are here! Innkeeper Beth is just as sweet as can be, and is very helpful with any advice on things to do about the town, whether it be local restaurants, the best ice cream shop,... More

We stayed here for two nights during our visit to the area for the Seneca Lake wine trail "Deck the Halls" weekend and really enjoyed our first experience at a B&B! We liked the location, since it was off the main street, yet within easy walking distance to the restaurants we chose to go to. Our Guest Room #5 was... More

Hands down, this B & B offered the biggest, most delicious and varied breakfasts that we’ve encountered on our travels. And what a treat to find fresh home-baked goodies placed in our room each day. My husband and I loved our spacious Guest Room #4, conveniently located next to the 2nd floor lounge/kitchenette where we could help ourselves to coffee... More

The B&B was nice, comfortable, safe and convenient to downtown. Several restaurants and bars to choose from and also in walking distance to the Watkins Glen State Park. We really enjoyed talking to Beth and her brownies upon returning to our room that night. The multi-course breakfast was delicious. Thank you again for your hospitality and if we are in... More

This was a really nice b&b in the heart of 'downtown' Watkins Glen. A 5 minute, 2 block walk to the main street. The veranda was great to sit on and watch the world go by. The bedrooms were beautifully decorated and upstairs was a lounge that guests could use to sit, read, play cards, microwave or prepare some small... More
