We booked the Silver Strand via the internet, so we had a limited idea of what we would get, although the Finger Lakes and the B&B both read well. Were we lucky, or is everywhere this good? The building is old and a little creaky, but to us Brits, it is a perfect representation of rural America. The view from... More

The best the Finger Lakes has to offer. The scenic view of the lake and a gourmet breakfast on the porch is a perfect start to your day. We have been coming to the Silver Strand for over 10 years and plan to return in years to come to relax, re-charge and reward ourselves during this weekend vacation get-a-way.

Silver Strand is a wonderful bed and breakfast. We always felt welcome in the common areas, which include a dining room, living room (with tv), and a sprawling wrap-around porch. Although not mentioned in their advertising, I was able to connect to the internet. There is also a cooler stocked with water, soda, beer and wine which is available 24... More

Our fourth visit was pleasurable as always. Maura and Skip are friendly and caring owners. Maura's breakfast is out of this world delicious. The views are wonderful. You can walk to a local winery, relax on the dock, take a nap on the hammock,or take a boat ride with Skip. Don't expect luxury. Expect a restful visit that will entice... More

I highly recommend the Silver Strand. We stayed two nights and had a wonderful, restful stay. Maura's breakfasts are amazing. And Skip's winery cruise was fun. We stayed in the smallest and least expensive room because it was the only one available. It was fine - in fact, it's porch was a perfect place to sit and enjoy a glass... More

From start to finish - an amazing experience. Maura and Skip are exceptional people ! Maura is able to completely integrate the considerable local bounty of the Cayuga farm region into every delectable meal - and then some. Their community of friends, vintners and restaurateurs provide so much more than wonderful food and drink for their patrons. You'll feel connected... More

The Silver Strand at Sheldrake was the perfect location not only to be right on Cayuga Lake it was very close to the Thirsty Owl where we were attending a Summer Solstice Party. Maura was the perfect hostess......we arrived early and to our surprise there was a cancellation so she offered us an "upgrade" to the front room #3 we... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Silver Strand at Sheldrake Point to celebrate our 10th anniversary. We stayed in the pricest room in the main house so that may color my impression of the following review. The house is georgeous. It is an 1860's victorian mansion, right above the water. Our room had an interesting tropical decor but... More

We've been spending vacations at the Silver Strand for more than ten years now. Maura and Skip are the perfect hosts, always making us feel completely at home. The location couldn't be better, just across the road from the lake and a short walk to the Sheldrake Point Winery. We usually take one of the rooms on the lake-facing side... More

The Silver Strand at Sheldrake is in a lovely location in the Finger Lakes offering easy access to a wealth of wineries and cheese tasting attractions. My husband and I loved the wonderful hospitality, the gourmet breakfasts, and access to a variety of boats for fishing. The atmosphere was casual and warm. We would highly recommend staying at the Silver... More
