If I could have rated this 2-1/2 stars, I would have. Although there were nice touches (chocolates in the room, a small vase of flowers, bathrobes), this bed and breakfast just missed the mark for me. We stayed in the Swaby Suite, two adjoining rooms with queen size beds and a very small bath with shower only across the hall. The owner was at church (on a Thursday evening) and her elderly mother was there to greet us (after much loud knocking and hand waving). She stood in the hall and pointed out things: your rooms are upstairs, the dining room is behind me, and the living room is in there. When I asked what time coffee was ready in the morning, she said “Yes, we have coffee.” I understand people have commitments, but at $175 a night, I think arrangements should be made to greet guests warmly. That is why we stay in bed and breakfasts and not Marriott Hotels. Carol said breakfast the first day would be at 8:30 to accommodate a couple who had not even checked in yet. Coffee would be ready at 8:00. Because I'm an early riser, I schlepped out at 7:00 for coffee at Dunkin Donuts. When I returned I was surprised to see coffee ready and breakfast being served to the couple who had checked in late. Breakfast was nice enough, but we had to leave early our last day and we were not disappointed in the least that we would be missing breakfast. Carol, the hostess, was cordial, but we did not find her to be overly friendly or helpful. She answered questions, but did not volunteer information about the area, things to do or the history of the house. We actually learned more about the home from a guest who grew up there. The second night we were there, the outer door repeatedly was locked; guests are not given a key for that door. We were locked out twice. Once it was my husband and when he knocked (for quite a while), Carol asked “Can I help you?” She didn’t recognize him from breakfast that day. Carol implied the lock problem was either us inadvertently locking the door or our 21 year old son being a “prankster,” until another guest who had checked in after us said “Oh, I’ve been locking that door.” There was a lamp in the hall that shined in our room at night. I turned it off one night and the next day there was a note that said to not turn off the light because it was on a timer. (There were two chandeliers that kept the hall illuminated at night in addition to that small lamp.) We stay at bed and breakfasts exclusively and the Van Cleef bed and breakfast is at best average, especially given the price range. With the number of B&Bs in the Finger Lakes area, you don’t have to settle for average.
