Thanksgiving dinner was excellent

We made a road trip to Ithaca to do some hiking and planned to visit Watkins Glen. After visiting the Chamber in Ithaca we found out that NASCAR was taking place that weekend and chances are most hotels were full. Not only did they help us find one close but made our reservation so we could go about our day!... More

We selected this restaurant based on reviews and were not disappointed. We made reservations for seven people t celebrate my daughter's high school graduation. We were greeted at the door and led to a private dining room that sat eight. The atmosphere, service, and food was excellent. It was also a very good value. Many small restaurants such as this...

My sister and her husband hosted a family dinner for 22, in honor of their son's Cornell graduation . The staff was welcoming, the food delicious, and the setting impeccable. We were located in the sun porch, and so had a private intimate setting for our celebration. The inn looks like a great place for my husband and I to... More

We had a fantastic birthday dinner here tonight. I had grilled tuna and John had black & blue sirloin steak. The vegetables were perfect, as was the meat. We loved sharing the peanut butter pie served for dessert. What a treat!!

We cannot say enough about the Benn Conger Inn. My husband's class from Groton, NY celebrated their 60th class reunion there on August 1, 2014. Peter and Doug are outstanding Innkeepers. The atmosphere is charming and the food was delicious. There were several waitresses and they are some of the best we have seen anywhere. We stayed at the Inn... More

We first went to tour the 1890 House in Cortland which was a very nice hour tour. My husband had made reservations at the Benn Conger Inn and restaurant for 5:00 p.m., and we were seated right away. We were greeted by the owners who were very pleasant to us. This is a very beautiful place, and the food was... More
