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

As a small child, I grew up in Locke, NY. In 1986 our wedding reception was held at the Benn Conger. This August I was invited to the Moravia Central School class of 1974 40th class reunion in the area. I have many memories of Groton, Locke, and Moravia and of the Benn Conger. It was a pleasant surprise to... More

On Aug. 1, 2014, I dined at the restaurant for a 60th High School Reunion. Great atmosphere, food and service. Would highly recommend it. It is a Bed and Breakfast. I didn't stay there, but the classmates who did said really nice things about their stay. Dick Metzgar Clayton, GA The selections on first time visit do not go back... More

We had a wonderful dining experience. The service was superb, the food excellent. And joining Peter for an after dinner drink in the cozy bar was a treat. We don't get to the Benn Conger as often as we would like, but every time we go, we wonder why we waited so long to return. You won't be disappointed!

This is probably the 4th or 5th time I have enjoyed a great meal at the BGI. The environment, the host (either Peter or Doug), the quality of the food and the wait staff always give you a outstanding time and for true value. If you are looking for delicious food, intimate and detailed dining experience this is definitely the... More

Visiting with family took us to this restaurant where we were treated like family and there was no need to ask for seconds! The prime rib, duck and veal oscar were out of this world and the accompaniments surprising! There were veggie towers that you couldn't stop eating, delicious sweet potato and zucchini fries and the coolest salad presentation I... More

We spent our wedding night here 30 years ago. We are delighted it's still open. It's in the home of the man who founded Smith-Corona (typewriters) in the mid 1800s. The dining room is intimate, quiet and for just a few couples and larger groups. The mural on the wall was stunning - a castle overlooking the sea, set among... More
