Recommend the pub side for informal gatherings and dinner. Our Server was great friendly local that was attentive. We were visiting and had been on the go all day. Great relaxing place for meal. Portions are huge- so be prepared. Beef barley soup was delicious. Open face steak sandwich was enough for two- delicious. If you order kettle chips starter... More

We were treated very well by our hostess. She explained the meals and was patient as we waited for our 2nd couples arrival. The kitchen staff was slow, as though on lunch break themselves. The food, whine did arrive was cooked perfectly for all. Nice atmosphere. My chicken sandwich was delicious and the chicken was very tender-perfect actually.

This place charmed the hell out of me. Picture book little inn in a pretty community right at the top of one of the Finger Lakes. The room was appointed nicely. Bed was comfortable, bathroom roomy clean and up to date. Lobby and hallways were decorated with care. And everything in town was an easy walk, restaurants, park. Lots of... More

I've reviewed this inn before, but this time I would like to add that we found the decorating superlative. We had a wonderful room, formerly a sunroom, that was so well done in terms of colo9r, fabric and functionality that I feel we should menion it. It is so seldom hat hotels spend money wiwely when it comes to aesthetics,... More

Just a great historic inn in a beautiful town on a magnificent lake. I stayed here with my family and we had an incredible time -- clean, well maintained, great food and a great bar to visit with friends. Lake is across the street, just can't beat it. This has the feel of a five star inn.

My wife and I stayed here for a few days last week. The hotel has so much ambiance and history. The room was nice but the food was fantastic. Breakfast was included and they have a small but very nice gift shop. We have been here for Easter dinner and also during Dickens Christmas. The Sherwood Inn is our go... More

Only stayed here one night, but we really enjoyed it. Stayed in Room 23, which had a nice view of the lake. We were able to peak in a lot of the other rooms on the 2nd floor, and they all looked nice. Not sure I would pay for a lake view room again unless I was getting a suite... More

We stayed at the Sherwood Inn on 6/24-6/26 and enjoyed a wonderful weekend stay. The Inn is traditionally decorated with a truly historic feel. This is not an old building renovated to be a modern hotel. Our room (37) was well decorated, spacious and while I prefer the rooms in the front of the Inn, it was perfect for our... More

We spent one night at the Sherwood during our Finger Lakes trip. The front desk team is knowledgeable and friendly, better yet - they allowed us to check in early. We were in Room 30, a good-sized corner room with a Queen size bed, lovely furnishings, small bath with shower only. If you peeked out the side window, you can... More
