“Wonderful B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2006

Finger Lakes wine country was that much better by staying at Trimmer House B&B. The B&B was centrally located between the Keuka and Seneca Lake wine trails in historic Penn Yan. The B&B was beautifully appointed and immaculate. Enjoyed the hot tub and big front porch. breakfast was delicious and featured the local specialty, buckwheat pancakes and waffles. The owners were helpful and knowledgible about the area. They had thought of everything we might need before we knew we needed it. We especially liked that the owners didn't hover over us but rather let us enjoy our stay without being obtrusive like many other B&Bs. If you visit the Finger Lakes wine country, you must stay at Trimmer House B&B. Great value too!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2005

We stayed at Trimmer House B&B for a long weekend with friends. The house was really beautiful and made for a relaxing trip. They have a hot tub for use which was a real plus. The house is within walking distance of downtown Penn Yan, a lovely little town - and a short drive from activities on Keuka and Seneca Lakes. Breakfast was good (featuring pancakes and waffles with buckwheat from the local mill) but not spectacular. The hosts were nice, but not overly friendly. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others, but we felt that just a bit more enthusiasm for breakfast and chatting up guests, this place could really be a 5-star stay.
