This is the best B&B I have ever stayed in. About 10 years ago I found them on bbonline.com and I have been visiting ever since. Sally caters to my gluten-free needs and makes lip-smacking breakfasts.

This was our second stay at the Marmalade Cat during Ice Bar weekend. We walked the few blocks to the event venue. B&B is nice and quiet, has a friendly host, comfortable rooms, reasonable rates and delicious breakfast. We'll be back :)

The charm of the B&B is the in keeper and we felt right at home here. Sally made sure everything was to our liking. There was just something appealing to the eclectic decor in this beautiful home. Truly warm and inviting

Arrived on a wet and blustery November late afternoon and were made instantly welcome by Sally in her quirky, English-themed house. Location is great, near the centre of town and effectively walking distance from pretty much everything, the shops, the restaurants, the clubs and even the Glen State Park. Our room was a little short of electrical sockets, the bathroom... More

Hello fellow Brits and thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Guests have called our home lovely, charming and even beautiful on most occasions, but quirky is a new one on me. ???

First the location of this B&B can't be beat. It seems like any major stop in the area is at most a half hour away (Ithaca, Geneva, Seneca Falls, Hammondsport). Its right on the main drag in Watkins Glen which makes it easy to find but there is a bit of road noise. Not enough to complain about but enough... More

Thank you so much for your kind review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful area. Naturally being in town there will be some traffic, but our great location gives perfect access to the lake, shops, restaurants, parks and of course the Watkins Glen Gorge. It was a pleasure...

Lucked into a room last minute- easy walk to restaurants & nicely outfitted. Wonderful hostess who gave us our space but was there as needed. Breakfast was generous, which was good because we were hiking the gorge that day. I agree with others that outlets were low, but I'm short enough I could stand to dry my hair. I loved... More

I second all the positive comments here. However, I am compelled to add two improvements needed for the Rose room (and probably for the other rooms). First, the sink (outside the small bathroom) was so tiny that only a small soap/cup could be placed on it. Where do you put your shaving, toothpaste and other equipment? Either install a sink...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We enjoyed having you stay with us in the Rose Room and appreciate your comments. Just for future reference to anyone reading our reviews, there is now a 3-tier stand next to the sink for toiletries, etc. (we had been searching for one that would fit that area). Also, it... More

We stayed at the Marmalade Cat for our 5th annual NASCAR family weekend. Every year we are treated like family. If you are thinking of a trip to Watkins Glen or the surrounding area, you need to stay here. Sally's breakfasts are excellent and you will not leave hungry. The bed and breakfast is in a great location. You are... More

Hello Dave and Suzanne, Thank you so much for your glowing review. We love having you all each year and look forward to each visit. And, yes, you are all like family now in so many ways.

This was our first trip to the Fingerlakes, we booked at The Marmalade Cat after seeing other great reviews. The atmosphere was outstanding, the rooms were very nice and the breakfasts were great as well! Overall this was a great experience and we would definitely stay there again!

The room was spacious and beautifully appointed; the bed was comfortable; and the shower was wonderful. And the breakfast was superb! This B&B was well located so that you could easily get where you wanted to go - a lot was walkable - some were short day trips. (Not handicapped accessible) Great visit. We would definitely go back.
