We had plans for a quiet 4 days of exploring the Finger Lakes and enjoying the "feel" of upper New York State. We found The Fox Inn on line and were impressed with the room illustrated and the menu listed. However, we wondered if it would really measure up to our expectations. I am so happy to report that we couldn't have been more pleased. The historic inn has been renovated to reconstruct the history and times way back when luxury was stated in the furnishings and accent pieces. Our 4-poster canopied bed was soooo comfortable and the towels, robes that were supplied were so soft and cozy! We also had so much fun playing several games of pool after we returned in the evening form our exploring the area. The pool table is situated in the main living area.
We were also pleased that we were able to use this inn as a base that allowed us to see all of the lakes in the 3 days easily. WE most loved loved Hammmondsport and Skeneateles. So many local wineries are closeby and delightful. I highly recommend the Village Bistro in Hammondsport....best prime rib have ever eaten!
All in all, a great mini escape. By the way, the hosts' knowledge of the area both in history and things to see and do was so helpful and the Creme Brulee french toast was to die for!! Great breakfast menu!
