Spectacular wine-cellar with spectacular wines ... a rare treasure! As well as a spectacular cuisine - a grand Chef with experience from Burgundy. All this in the countryside of upstate New York - it‘s a romantic Villa from 150 years ago. Thanks for filling this location with excellency in wine and food!

This is a lovely property that takes you back to a bygone era. Rooms are large (get one with a lake view), beds are comfortable. Dinner at the restaurant was top notch with a large , but affordable wine list. Downsides like a spartan continental breakfast and only a single sink in the bathroom were not enough to drop my eating to a 4.

Came for Sunday brunch and was not disappointed. I've always found the food and service to be excellent anytime of year I've visited. What I like about the brunch is that there are selections that are not at other restaurants. I enjoy tasting other foods with different ingredients and the chefs their do deliver for both hot and cold dishes. Of course there are the usual bunch choices. Many families and couples representing all ages were dining. We sat outside and noticed the outdoor casual refreshment area had people eating breakfast and enjoying morning drinks there. There is outdoor seating for enjoying the lake view after the brunch which we did. It's a great place to eat and enjoy the views of Cazenoiva lake.

We stayed here for one night on our way north to Canada. The staff was friendly, check in was a breeze, and the room was very comfortable. We had dinner outside by the lake and it was great! Decent breakfast is included and wifi was great. This is a beautiful place.
