We stayed at the Bed & Breakfast Wellington for the first and last day of our trip, and after a week on the road, our last night was like coming home. Wendy and Ray are gracious hosts and the beds were the most comfortable we’ve found at a B & B. The house is filled with flowers, inside and out (you must check out her kitchen), which lends a homey atmosphere. Rooms were spotless and well-maintained. Our second-floor room had a door leading to a lovely screened-in porch.
Wendy’s cooking is terrific. She excels at the weekend breakfasts, which may be a bit heavy on carbs, but splendid in the variety of special pastries, apple cakes, muffins, stuffed French toast, etc. We found plenty of special touches with each breakfast.
The location is close to the freeway, the University, and downtown restaurants, while still being in a quiet residential area. Ray’s written directions for local shops, restaurants, and attractions made it easy to find our way around town. The people we met here were some of the nicest and most interesting of any we’ve met at a B & B. Most were repeat visitors, which is understandable. We would definitely recommend it to anyone coming to the Syracuse area.
