“BEST Bed and Breakfast EVER!! :D”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2010

My husband and I decided to drive up to the Finger Lakes area for a romantic getaway to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. We found this B & B online, and my husband called to make a reservation. Just from the brief conversation he had with the super-friendly owner, Carolsue, we knew we were in for a real treat! :) We arrived to a beautiful, immaculate house, where we were warmly greeted by Carolsue and the wonderful aroma of herbs from her gift shop. We stayed in the Sage Room, with a King Bed, which was so comfortable and cozy. The other rooms looked really cute and comfortable, too. The bathroom is in the hallway, but was never an issue. Carolsue pays great attention to keeping her house spotless and bleaches the bathroom every day, so you never feel strange about sharing a bathroom with other guests. There is a clawfoot bath tub, perfect for a relaxing bubble bath! ;) The medicine cabinet was filled with nice little amenities too, in case you forgot anything. I cannot say enough good things about Carolsue- she is one of the most charming, fascinating people I have ever met! :) She is incredibly warm and sweet, and just makes the best breakfasts ever! They are all organic and vegetarian, healthy and hearty! She also makes REALLY good organic popcorn for a snack at night! We had such a great stay here, and this is coming from someone who has traveled extensively. We were actually having so much fun, that by the 2nd day, we had decided to stay an extra night! ;) During our visit, we ate at some great restaurants which Carolsue recommended- The Rooster Fish Brewery & Pub/Wildflower Cafe (they share a menu) in Watkins Glen (5 minutes away), the Stone Cat Cafe (only a 15 minute drive), and Moosewood in Ithaca (about 1/2 hour drive- VERY fun town!). All have excellent organic and vegetarian options. Also, we drove out to Hammondsport one day and went to Bully Hill Vineyards- a "no frills" winery, which was SO much fun! The people that work there wear tie-dye and speak in rhyme. ;) And the wines are delicious! We had such an amazing time on this trip and absolutely cannot wait to come back to this B & B- it really was like a home away from home, and I know Carolsue will be a life-long friend. Feel free to contact me with any questions... my name is Kimmie, and I'm at: derikimmie@comcast.net

If during your correspondence you can find a good date where you are here at the cottage alone go for it. Carolesue is a wonderful host, the food is completely organic and absolutely amazing, the house smells so sweet its like walking through a garden. A truly amazing experience, a must stay.
