“A Treasure in the Finger Lakes Region”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2008

Looking for a nice getaway in the picturesque Finger Lakes Region of New York State, and having traveled on business in the area it didn't take me long to find the Gothic Eves Bed and Breakfast through a local search. My companion and I stayed in the Smokehouse Room, so named for the small smokehouse outside the window overlooking the backyard. I was not disappointed and this B&B exceeded all my expectations. The main house was built in 1855 and has been furnished with authentic antiques.

Gothic Eves is located in the small town of Trumansburg N.Y., has an almost New England charm. Most travelers will drive right through it on the way to nearby Ithaca (home of Cornell University). It is in the heart of New York's wine region and centrally located to several state parks and Finger Lakes National Forest. If you hike, cycle, swim, or otherwise love the outdoors this is the perfect place to rest. Take a winery tour if you wish or go to the Museum of the Earth (passes available from the hosts) at the end of the day you will be happy to kick back and relax. The gourmet style breakfast would be at home in any high end hotel, and all the rooms have a different theme. I found an authentic 1944 edition of National Geographic in my room, the perfect touch. Despite the extreme cold outside, the heating was excellent and bedding was beyond comfortable.

There is a word of advice to anyone expecting modern technology in this B&B. There are no TVs, telephones, or internet access in the rooms. Quite frankly it was refreshing, and we loved it. The feeling of getting away from it all is exactly what we were looking for. The hosts, Rose Hilbert and Roman Pausch are always available and are beyond accommodating; not to mention excellent cooks.

The only thing I regret was leaving after a peaceful three day weekend. I look forward to returning in the near future and possibly trying one of the other rooms in what will no doubt be a great experience. Call them or email them, you won't be disappointed.
