I have spent many a fun evening here in the past and I was eager to treat my family to this place. However, having stayed here over the early part of the summer, it was a little grubby, and the food leaves much to be desired. Owners are nice people, but it’s Caz: ( as in Cazenovia ) A tiny little village in the middle of central NY. I feel they don’t quite get the hospitality biz as it sits these days. Do yourself a favor- there are other places who will give you much more for a lot less dosh. You have to be better than good to compete- honestly.
This historic building offers lovely accommodations and good food. The staff are very helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. It was like staying in someone's home but with all the privacy we could desire. We enjoyed our stay and hope to visit again.
We stayed at the Lincklaen House because it was located within walking distance of much of Cazenovia! The Inn is charming and you feel like you stepped back in time. Our room's decor was soothing and clean. Our room was quiet except for some traffic noise (it's located on a corner). The only negative for us was that the bed was really high! I'm 5'4" and my husband had to boost me up unto the bed each time I got in -- a little step stool would have been great. ha! The bed was a little on the hard side for us; although, to be fair, we are spoiled with our pillow-top king size bed at home. There's no elevator which wasn't an issue for us but it could be for anyone who has trouble with stairs or if you have lots of luggage so be forewarned of that. The weather was lovely so we were able to eat in the courtyard. The breakfast was adequate for us. The staff is very accommodating; we were craving coffee in the evening so they brought up a little tray with de-cafe in a little pot, creamer, sugar, etc. It was nice. There are benches on the front porch; we sat there a bit just enjoying people watching.…
The Lincklaen House oozes class and character with it's 2 beautiful dining rooms, gorgeous lobby and wide staircase. All 3 fireplaces were roaring as we checked in with a bridal shower in 1 dining room and a baby shower in another. The attractive brick property has 2 main entrances, one more thru their taproom ( The Stone Steps) and another thru the back courtyard. There are many attractive maps, plaques, paintings and decorations in the property. It is located in the center of town and you can walk to many shops, restaurants, parks, the lake and even other inns as well as Cazenovia College. The young lady that checked us in was tremendous, great sense of humor and full of local insight. The only negative was the mattress in Room 222 needs to be changed. We loved the tavern downstairs and the continental breakfast was passable with waffles, fruit, breads, juices, teas etc. They have a nice lighted courtyard that must be nice in the warmer weather and it opens into a attractive pizza restaurant. With a better mattress, this is a slam dunk 5.…
Nice, clean room in a historic building, super comfy bed. The lighting was dim but I had my hiking flashlight with me so that wasn't a problem. The bathroom was updated and clean, everything was in good working order. There were no accessible outlets in the bedroom ( all were behind furniture) so I had to plug my cell phone into the one outlet in the bathroom - make sure you bring a charger with a longer cable. The window panes are thin so I could hear cars on the street below but still slept well. The onsite restaurant is good, the complimentary breakfast is minimal due to Covid precautions but was good ( cereal, breads, coffee, tea, pineapple juice). Staff was very nice. I would stay here again.
Really beautiful, old-fashioned, comfortable. We had a charming room with TWO easy chairs, so no one had to spend the evening sitting on the bed. Breakfast was pretty spare because of Covid, but the staff was consistently attentive and helpful all round. We had a good dinner in the elegant dining room. P.S. The wi-fi service is awful.
This hotel was built in 1835, but has all the 21st century comforts. There are loads of antiques, and comfy beds, lots of towels and a strong shower The staff is delightful and helpful. We ate dinner - see picture of spectacular popover-and breakfast there and both meals were very good. The other picture is of an old telephone closet - what people did before cell phones. I hope to go back.
My wife and I had a very nice dinner in the tavern, where we have dined before but had forgotten how good the food can be! The crab cake appetizer was very nicely done, as was my beef on kummelwick. This was not exactly the "beef on wick" I grew up with in western New York--it was better! Nice tender slices of sirloin served with a tasty dipping sauce. My wife had the stir fried vegetables and crusted tuna, which was also very good. We topped it off with the flourless dark chocolate cake, which was very tasty. The service was good, if a bit rushed, but it was busy and our waitress was doing her best to keep up. Overall, a great, casual place to go for a nice meal! Note: we did not stay at the hotel/inn.
My daughter and I stayed in this hotel for one night when we were on a recent college tour trip. We were in the area to visit Colgate University. Lincklaen House is about a 25 minute drive up some lovely country roads to get to Colgate. This hotel is so quaint and historic and it's located on a great little main street. We were greeted by a very friendly woman who was genuinely happy to be there and was incredibly nice. We received keys to our room (yes, actual keys)! and headed up to the 2nd floor. I don't think there are elevators (not that I saw anyway) so that is something to be aware of but she did immediately ask if we needed help with our bags (we didn't but appreciated the offer). The room we were in had 2 double beds and was comfortable. The only 2 things I'd mention about the room that might be good to know is, since this is an old building there are not many outlets for charging phones/computers, etc. We unplugged a lamp so we could charge a phone. The other thing is that the windows only have blinds and no curtains. I like my room to be dark so that the sun doesn't wake me up in the morning. That being said, the blinds are very sold and did a pretty good job of blocking out the light, it just wasn't totally dark. Also, you do hear street noise but it didn't really bother me except for a couple of loud trucks that went by over night. We had a window A/C unit that kept our room comfortable so that was nice. We ate dinner at the attached pizza place (the Tavern was closed). Apparently the tavern, pizza place and restaurant in the hotel can all serve from the same menu so that was nice for us. We were able to charge our food to the room. They had a continental breakfast in the morning and because of covid, there were limited items. They did have fruit, yogurt, english muffins, juice, milk, coffee. You could sit in the small eating area or take it out on the pretty little outdoor patio but it was too cold and rainy for us to do that. Overall a great stay and a great price. We wished we had more time there to explore the hotel and the town. I would definitely stay again if we're in the area.…
Hotel is pretty, room was nice but very warm with no actual temperature control. No screens so could not open windows for relief. Also no fridge in the room which was difficult for me as I need insulin and it has to be refrigerated. My ice packs only lasted so long so I wound up losing almost a full insulin pen as I had no way to keep it cold.
