Can't say enough about this place. Diane and Ken run a class act B and B. Do not look any further for your stay in Seneca Falls. We were greeted by Ken and he showed us around their beautiful and very clean home. I am a very picky person with regards to where i stay, i would not hesitate to... More

The moment you walk into Barrister's B&B (the name Barrister is taken from the original owner in late 1800's who was a barrister (attorney), you know there is depth of history in this home. The location is Senaca Falls, New York (the Finger Lakes Region) is a perfect "launch point" for getting to all the many Lakes Region attractions -... More

Ken and Diane create a wonderful ambiance and serve fabulous breakfasts. They know all the great places to go and have coupons for many of the wineries. We slept very well on luxurious linens and enjoyed our suite, Erin's retreat enormously

Our stay here was the best we've ever had at a B&B. The innkeepers, Ken and Diane were so helpful as we navigated our way around the Finger Lakes Region. They have developed close ties with many wineries and provided us with free tasting passes. What makes this a standout B&B are the breakfasts. Suffice it to say that they... More

Ken and Diane are delightful hosts at this historic, restored mansion convenient to many area attractions. The rooms are beautifully furnished, very clean, and the bed very comfortable. Thoughtful amenities include good room lighting, toiletries, and coffee and tea available in the evening. Three course, homemade breakfasts featuring local products were delicious! A wide front porch invites lounging and the... More

I want to add my simple concurrence to the legion of encomium blanketing this website for this remarkable B&B. Yes, Ken and Diane have a real gem of a stately residence to offer guests. Diane is indefatigable in the advice she offers about local sites and Ken's modest descriptions of his incomparable breakfast creations hardly do the morsels justice. You... More

This was a great B&B experience. The hosts, Ken and Diane, were delightful, amusing and helpful. The breakfasts were truly memorable, using very fresh local ingredients. Mmmmmm...! We received excellent advice on the local wineries, places to go hiking and birding, and had an overall great weekend. We highly recommend the Barristers B&B! Anne & David
