This was our second visit to Barrister's, but this time we brought the rest of our family. We wanted them to have the same great experience we had on our first visit...and they did. Lovely accommodations, fabulous breakfast, and gracious hosts, you could not ask for more. We will recommend this B & B to everyone we know coming to... More

Lovely b&b, large, comfortable rooms. Innkeepers were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. They were eager to please and able to accommodate our food choices. Would definitely recommend this b&b if you are looking for warm hospitality in the area.

We spent one night at Barrister's en route from a summer getaway. What a gem! The bed was more comfortable than ours at home, and the breakfast was superb (the highlight was blueberry french toast with candied bacon). Ken and Diane are wonderful hosts. The B&B is a magnificent mid-19th Century Victorian that has been lovingly restored. It is easy... More

Can't say enough good things about Ken, Diane and their B&B, but I'll try. We visit the Finger Lakes nearly every year as part of a wine getaway, but this was our first trip to Seneca Falls. We found The Barrister's as part of a Groupon and were not disappointed. Ken and Diane are welcoming and accomodating hosts. Ken's 3... More

My fiance and I stayed in Erin's Retreat and friends stayed in Grandmother's room. We arrived quite late on Friday and were greeted by Ken and shown to our room. Erin's has a nice parlor before you get to the bedroom. There is a couch, two armchairs, a writing desk and a comfortable day bed. Note to others, Erin's Retreat... More

Spent two nights here as our home base to explore the Finger Lakes and surrounding wineries. Tom and Diane are delightful; both know the history of the area, and have a font of information about surrounding area activities. They are active in the community, and share their love for Seneca Falls. The inn is old but lovingly restored. Photos in... More

Victorian B & B in a quaint town, located in the beautiful Finger Lakes region. Victorian houses are not our first choice in B & Bs, but this one was in great shape, very clean, tastefully decorated, and with quite comfortable accommodations. The hosts were friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and very helpful. Grounds were lovely, as was the neighborhood.... More

The barrister is a Very clean and convenient stopping off point in Seneca Falls New York. The road is rather busy outfront with lots of trucks so be sure and ask for room at the rear that is quiet. The host was an expert cook. The hostess was overly chatty for our tastes. The second day egg frittata was dry... More

Diane and I are so sorry that Barrister's did not meet your expectations. The Inn is located near the downtown area and traffic is busy at times. We do our best to maintain a very quiet environment in the house. We replaced all 68 windows with double insulated glass to help that effort. We try to provide you with useful... More

Barrister's is within walking distance of the national park in Seneca Falls and the all around best place to stay in the town. Step into the past as you step through the door. The parlor, dining room and bedrooms mirror the history of the town. The breakfast, with one seating, is not only excellent, but allows all guests to exchange... More

Ken and Diane are Expert innkeepers! From the Victorian decor to the wealth of information (including menus from restaurants in the area) that they graciously provide! A wide variety of tea and coffee are always available in the dining room sometimes with delicious baked goodies.... Many brochures of the surrounding area are found in the living room, but Ken and...
