Great beds, great showers, amazing service and above all we were utterly impressed by the amount of heart and soul that Deb and Marc put into this place. Thank goodness they fell in love with this octagonal piece of New York's history and restored it.
Regarding eating in the area: We unfortunately could not find a restaurant in Hammondsport open after 8:30 pm on a Tuesday night ( I think this was still off-season) and we were hungry! Immediately Debbie offered to 'whip something up' , and served a truly delightful meal, w/o previous 'dinner for two' reservation. They did not seem to mind that we brought our own beers and snacks ...and even offered the use of the fridge in their reception area to keep the beers cold.
I highly recommend this B&B, wish we could have stayed longer. They were working on getting an on site yoga/ massage area set up, and my husband and I look forward to returning to see their progress.
