Just returned from 2 nights at the Fox Inn in Penn Yan, NY....What an amazing, charming place. The owners, Tanya and Mike, create a warm, welcoming atmosphere and cook one hell of a breakfast (Crème broulee French toast!!!!). We stayed in the William Oliver room, which was spacious, clean, and had a really nice Jacuzzi tub. The Fox is also...

My husband and I decided to take a last minute trip to the finger lakes and found a gem! We stayed in the William Oliver Suite, which was amazing! Everything was clean and beautifully decorated. In some of the previous reviews, they mentioned that there are not locks on the outside of the bedrooms. The new owners recently installed them...

Mike & Tanya were gracious hosts with their beautiful B&B. Many antique furnishings in a large old home offering a wonderful breakfast. Kind of meets my definition of B&B. We made good use of the pool table and enjoyed the main street location from the front porch when we returned from our dinners. Penn Yan seemed to be a convenient...

What a beautiful place with a wonderfully friendly and accommodating family operating it. We went in late May, midweek and took advantage of a wonderful wine tasting package they were offering. We are originally from California and were pleasantly surprised by New York's "Napa Valley". We had not been to this part of the state before but definitely want to...

My husband and I stayed August 12th with my sister and brother in law. We really enjoyed our stay. There were many extra little touches including snacks in the room, a hospitality cabinet in the lounge and cookies to go. We were on the first floor next to the kitchen. There were wonderful baking aromas late in the evening and...

We stayed one night with our 9 and 12 year olds. The Inn was well kept, clean and we were welcomed warmly. We had a 2 bedroom suite with comfortable beds and a large, well appointed bathroom. The Inn has great common areas, and they serve a generous, wonderful breakfast. I hope we will return!

We spent two nights at the Fox Inn in early June and the overall experience was excellent. We traveled with another couple and they too agreed that this was one of the best B&B's we've seen. The house blends old world charm with modern amenities, the rooms are comfortable and the small downtown core of Penn Yan is essentially next...
