We had our wedding there in August and the benn conger inn is the place for the perfect wedding!! Peter and Doug is really what made it perfect they met all our needs and went above them by the extra things they did for us. They made it stress free and we planned everything together. We are not from the area but they knew all the people for us to contact to get the cake,flowers,and photographer. I can't say enough about these guys. They made our day perfect and they are family to us now. We will definitely be back to visit these gentlemen and the beautiful benn conger inn.

Doug and Peter who own the Benn Conger Inn are the most welcoming hosts that I have ever met. My husband and I have stayed at many Inns in the region and have never experienced the gracious generosity that the Benn Conger has to offer. The setting is exquisite. In a region that has many B&B's none will match the quality of experience that you will have at the Benn Conger. The rooms are well appointed and you feel like you step back in time to a period in history where style mattered and hospitality was not just a word. The intimate Bar, the wonderful food and most of all the gracious hosts make the Benn Conger one place that nobody should miss! Thanks Peter and Doug. We will of course never forget our time there. You made us feel like family.

The Benn Conger Inn is a beautiful, and supremely comfortable place to stay. My husband and I are from the area, and we found ourselves staying here on a whim with some friends visiting from out of town. We had a blast chatting it up with Doug at the quaint bar inside the beautifully appointed Victorian House. If you are looking for a place to stay that has the kind of space, and eloquence of an Inn, but the warmth and hospitality of a local B&B , this is a place for you. I have worked at an Inn, and I have stayed in countless 3-5 star hotels, Inns and B&B's throughout the world. This place has something unique to offer. The Benn Conger Inn is the definition of casual elegance: comfortable and indulgent at the same time. The rooms are lovely, and the breakfast is delicious. Also, the entertaining space within the main house, and the property are worth considering for anyone hosting an event/wedding. Thank you Doug and Pete for a great time. We wish you all the best!

We were married at the Benn Conger Inn in September 2012. We could not have asked for a better team helping make our wedding special.

Peter was extremely helpful to us in planning our wedding, connecting us with local vendors and patiently fielding our questions. We don't live in the area, but he readily made himself available when we were visiting from out of town.

It rained on our wedding day, but the alternate arrangement they pulled together for our ceremony indoors was perfect. The food was great, the atmosphere was casual and friendly, the evening was run smoothly, and all our guests had a great time.

We didn't end up staying at the Inn ourselves, but many of our family & friends did, and all reported that it was a wonderful place to stay. Some plan to come back again on their own.

I strongly recommend the Benn Conger Inn if you're getting married in the Central New York region.

I have been to many places and never felt a need to post a review until now. I have a background in culinary arts, make everything from scratch and and extremely fussy about the cleaniless of where I stay. It's safe to say at times I am hard to please or impress. I can't say enough good things about Benn Conger, from Doug and Pete making us feel welcome and their amazing display of hospitality, to the delicious breakfast, to the beautiful, immaculate, comfortable room, this place is a little piece of heaven! The Inn has such character and is decorated beautifully and Doug and Pete are happy to speak to you about the history or answer any questions despite their busy schedules. Me and my husband truly enjoyed ourselves and can't sing their praises enough! If you are overwhelmed with all the possibilities of Inns, B & Bs, hotels/motels in the area, please stop looking, you found your place and we will definitely be back!

We were attending a meeting at Cornell and tried the historic Benn Conger Inn for the first time after many years of staying in the Ithaca area. Our room in the Victorian House was spacious, attractively decorated, and very comfortable in every way. Each room had its own balcony overlooking the beautiful property. We had an outstanding dinner with a very nice wine selection, and the breakfasts were delicious and perfect in a "greenhouse" setting. The formal dining rooms are most attractive, and one includes an elegant mural. Doug and Peter were most accommodating and helpful. The main building at the Inn is a beautiful, historic Colonial Revival tastefully restored for its present use.

Room Tip: All the rooms seemed to be attractive, spacious, and with similar accommodations though decorated in...

The Benn Conger is an amazing well oiled machine!!! I was attending a wedding for a dear friend and was amazed with the Inn. The owners we fantastic and like other reviews the owners were on top of every detail. From the Harvest Salad with a champagne apple vineagarette to the Chicken Picatta...tops! The staff were equally delightful and were attentive to all of our needs. I stayed in the Celedon room and it must have had z-quil in the sheets, lol, never slept better other than home base.

A very tranquil experience for the Finger Lakes.

Thanks Peter and Doug!

Room Tip: Have the deep fried stuffed olives.
