“Been there since the beginning and plan to keep coming:)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

My wife and I have traveled to the Fingerlakes and stayed at the Day Dreams Bed & Breakfast(DDBB) for three straight years. The reasons that we continue to stay there are the wonderful hospitality; the great breakfasts each morning; and the serene nature of Christine, her husband and her mother.

The DDBB staff have always gone out of their way to ensure that my wife and I have had a fantastic stay. From their warm nature, their helpful suggestions--restaurants to local attractions, and sometimes waiting up if we're out late, the DDBB staff have always made us feel like we are at home. In addition, they do an outstanding job in quickly and thoroughly cleaning our rooms each day.

The breakfasts, hmm, where do I start. Christine typically makes some type of fruit pastry as a starter that is always fresh and tasty. I tend to like to watch my calories, but because it's always so good, I always end up selecting the item of the day. They offer a variety of options--from french toast and pancakes to scramble eggs and omelette-and the hearty breakfast typically holds us over to the early evening.

During out 2nd year, we shared that in a few weeks we would be getting married. Well, we were completely surprised on our last day we say a bottle of Dr. Frank's wine and two decorative wine glasses in our room. This kind gesture meant a lot to us and demonstrated to us that not only did DDBB appreciate our patronage, they also cared about us as individuals.

We look forward to going back next year to enjoy the Fingerlakes and see our friends at the DDBB.

This little inn has only four rooms. The innkeeper, Christine, was a wonderful host -- greeting us promptly, explaining the property and helping us with finding our way. One note is that the bathrooms are separate from the bedrooms, but don't be put off by that. Each bath is large, well appointed and totally private. There are several areas of the home dedicated to sitting areas and so you never feel cramped or isolated. We stayed in the Hunter Room and we were very impressed at the spaciousness and comfort. The entire property is IMMACULATE. It is obvious that Christine, Roberta and families take great pride in this property and do everything to make you feel like a pampered guest. Location is perfect for getting around Keuka Lake and is a short walk to downtown -- perfect for browsing the shops or walking by the lake. Breakfasts are made to order and were delicious. To the reviewer who complained about them being "nothing special" I would just say, that the food was prepared fresh, with healthy quality ingredients and convenient. I would definitely return and stat at this charming inn again.

Room Tip: I think any room here would be lovely--if you are looking for the bath to be IN your room, they only...

We just got back from our 2 night stay at Day Dreams and it was wonderful! We have stayed at many B & B's over the years and this is one of the best. Christine and Roberta are very welcoming and helpful. The location is great, being in walking distance of town. The house is extremely clean and renovated with guest comfort in mind. Breakfasts are yummy and we like having the "cooked to order" choices. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Choose the Day Barber room if you want an attached bath. Though the other baths are private and nic...

We returned for another long weekend. Though the weather didn't cooperate fully, we were pampered and treated like long lost family - again !
Love the location, the beds, the breakfasts made to order and the front porch - not to mention Christine and Roberta.
This is a wonderful place - and the reviewer who said 'less' must be used to such high end accommodations that she is not able to appreciate this lovely bed and breakfast.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in Hammondsport last weekend and had a superb experience at Day Dreams. Christine is a wonderful host. The rooms are the cleaniest I've ever stayed in. The breakfast was out of this world. The secret recipe pastry served before your made to order breakfast is absolutely insane. I want the recipe Christine!!

I was absolutely astonished to read the review from Enjoying_Life27. It couldn't be farther from the truth. Our stay was so memorable and I can't wait to go back.

We stayed at Day Dreams for three days late August after dropping our son off at RIT. The inn is immaculately kept and beautifully decorated. Christine, Jackie, and Chris' Mom were very friendly and welcoming. They had lots of tips on places to eat and what to see in the area. Chris recommended a "passport" booklet of coupons that local businesses and wineries had put together, which proved to be a great deal. We stayed in the Hunter Room, which was large with a very comfortable king size bed and a sitting area. We had been skeptical when we booked that the bathroom was down the hall, but this proved to be no problem. Note that the bath was a private bath for our use only, not a shared bath like at some B&Bs. Breakfasts were basically what I would make at home if I had time, nothing too special but tasty. Chris' homemade fruit dishes were the best! We've been to other B&Bs that had "gourmet" breakfasts that were sometimes just too rich for our taste, so our breakfasts here were fine with us. One of the best things about a B&B is meeting and talking to the other guests at breakfast. We were encouraged to linger in the dining room and chat over coffee as long as we liked, and we enjoyed some very interesting conversation. The location of the inn was great, within walking distance of the town center and lake front. Overall, we would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed last weekend and enjoyed every minute there. The rooms are lovely, the beds so comfortable and the bathrooms very clean as well as the whole house. The breakfasts were delicious and made to your order. The owners are so friendly and so accommodating. We had no complaints and hope to get back next year.
