Driftwood was very clean and comfortable. Jim and Tammy were great hosts. The B&B was right on the water with a great view. Sitting on the big porch was relaxing we found the whole area very friendly. We will more then likely return to the Driftwood

I honestly picked this place randomly on Google Maps, and I am glad I did. My girlfriend and I stayed her for a weekend getaway, and had nothing but a positive experience. A lot of thought is put into the breakfast each morning. If you are not a B&B person, you are able to keep to yourself. However, if you... More

We wanted to go on a quick getaway and knew a little bit about the area… but had never been down to the Inn's location on Sheldrake Point on Cayuga Lake. Everything was excellent - would return again, no matter the season. Wonderful hosts and pleasant guests.

Very nice bed and breakfast inside and out. Clean, quiet and inviting. The property is right on the lake and very serene. The owners were friendly and welcoming and the breakfast was delicious. We've stayed at many B&B's over the years in all different parts of the Northeast and this was one of the best.

Accommodations were cozy and clean. The property is beautiful. Owners are welcoming. They serve a great breakfast in the morning. We were looking for a quick, relaxing getaway and found it here. Having a winery within walking distance never hurts either. We are looking forward to the next trip with more friends and will happily refer everyone we know.

This inn is right on the lakefront. You walk out the door and see at the lake a few yards away. The atmosphere at the inn was serene. Breakfasts were delicious and beautifully prepared. Kayaks are available right at the inn. We brought our bikes for biking along the lake over rolling hills.

My husband and I had never stayed at a B & B. Fortunately for us, our first experience was at the Driftwood on beautiful Cayuga Lake. The view from the front porch is spectacular with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. Our hosts Jim and Tammy were so friendly and welcoming and the breakfasts they prepared and served were delicious!

My wife and I found the Driftwood Inn Bed and Breakfast beautiful at first glance. The views are wonderful around the Inn and across the lake, and the owners put it over the top in hospitality and good conversation. The room was very comfortable and had the feel of visiting a dear friend’s home. The locale was awesome such that... More
