This lovely Inn is located right on the lake with dock , pier and sun deck to enjoy. Our host Maura was most accommodating and friendly giving us the Inn tour to our spacious room with lake facing balcony and fire place. The view was terrific. The Inn has a wrap around porch with well manicured grounds. Breakfast was a... More

Nice sized room with private bath and balcony overlooking the lake. We had access to kayaks and a row boat. My husband also fished from the dock. Walking distance to one winery with several others close by. Also close to hiking and a goat farm for cheese tasting. The owner, Maura, was very nice and made absolutely wonderful breakfasts! We...

B&B's do not get any better then this. The hosts make you feel like family the moment we arrived. Private bath with a balcony overlooking the lake. Give it a try. They have a long dock over the water with deck chairs for sun bathing. They deliver coffee to your room at your requested time. Then breakfast on the porch... More

This was our first time staying at a Bed & Breakfast and we had a great time. Maura and Skip went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. The room was clean, the breakfasts were amazing, and the view of the lake was spectacular. We stayed two nights and it was the perfect getaway. We can't wait... More

As sunset approached we went out on the long private dock and soaked in the golden colors, as the swallows darted about gobbling up the mosquitoes. In the late evening after a wonderful local dinner we sat on our private porch and enjoyed a bottle of (very) local wine under an umbrella of wondrously bright stars. In the morning, Maura... More

Most relaxing long weekend thanks to the property and the hosts, Never stayed at a B&B before which delivered a pot of coffee to the room at the time guest chooses. Had that coffee on the porch right outside our room each morning in our pajamas in Adirondack Chairs overlooking the lake. Then a breakfast to die for in the... More

We stayed at this B&B three nights and had a lovely visit. The best parts of it were the location with an awesome view and the very special breakfasts prepared by Maura. She has a real flair for presentation as well preparing very tasty unique items. One drawback when staying in the room decorated with a tropical theme is lack... More

Stayed at 4 B&B's on our trip and this was our favorite. Even though some of the others provided free drinks(beer, wine and soda) plus snacks, we still preferred Silver Strand. They are located right on Cayuga Lake, dock, boats, etc. The number one reason to stay there is Maura, she is special. Warm, friendly, accommodating and a fantastic cook.... More

My husband & I were in town for a wedding and were fortunate enough to be able to secure one of the rooms here. We stayed in what was formerly the master bedroom of the house and the view of Cayuga Lake was spectacular!! The room was very tastefully decorated with plenty of windows to let in the beautiful fresh... More

Sorry, but we don't quite agree with the other rave reviews, especially based on our experiences with other B & B's. First the Pros; Good location, beautiful view, full use of boats, bikes,, helpful advice from the owners, etc.. Now the Cons; Our room was advertised as being large, but it was nothing special. Maura was away the first 2... More
