“Simply Perfect!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

What can I say that other's haven't already said. . .Judy was warm & welcoming from the moment we arrived until we (unfortunately) had to leave. We spent Memorial Day weekend at Lakeside. While we were out much of the days, each evening when we returned there was always a little snack waiting and plenty of beverages available whenever we needed. The house is beautifully located on Owasco Lake providing a delightful view each morning.

We stayed in what I think was the only room with a private bath which was clean and neat. I will say, we stay at many B&Bs and have never had the supply of personal toiletries that were made available at Lakeside! Everything you can think of, much more than your typical guest soap-way to go Judy! Our only wish would have been for a small TV in our room, we like to watch the news as we relax - but other than that, we were thrilled and look forward to returning!

This bed and breakfast was perfect. Very clean, fair price and wonderful hosts. The food was out of this world. It felt like home. It's a postcard like setting minutes away from wineries, shopping, great restaurants and spas.

It is difficult to review Lakeside Bed & Breakfast without boring one with superlatives. We stayed for three nights in mid October for the purpose of touring the Finger Lakes region of New York at the peak of fall foliage season. The foliage was beautiful but paled in comparison to experiencing the warmth and serenity afforded us at Lakeside. Judy and Dick Freeman, our hosts, along with Madison, their gentle canine, made it even more rewarding. So nice to wake in the morning to the smell of coffee and fresh baked bread and pastries. The tasteful decorating and attention to every detail is right out of 'Traditional Living' magazine. Although small by some B&B standards, its size added to the quaintness and feeling of comfort and the views of Lake Owasco were extraordinary. Need I say more? It is the B&B by which others should be judged. Cannot wait to return.

Every detail has been attended to in this absolutely lovely home on Owasco Lake. We have stayed in many b and b's and this is by far one of the nicest. We enjoyed visiting with Judy, our host, and cannot say enough about the wonderful breakfast. Every amenity is at your fingertips. We look forward to our next visit.

I was tempted to just copy & paste all the prior excellent reviews, it’s all true.

Being an amateur woodworker I tend to look at details most people wouldn’t notice.
I was amazed at the quality & condition of their 120 year old house, furnishings and improvements done though the years.
The house and grounds are very well kept and the bathrooms are operating room clean.
And Madison the dog is reason enough to visit the Lakeside.

We toured the area for three days, my only regret is that we did not block out much time to just hang around the house & lake. Won’t make that mistake next time!

We travelled to Auburn for a girls weekend on a hot, humid July weekend. After spending a steamy afternoon outdoors, we were cranky, exhausted and ready for some refreshing. Upon arriving at Lakeside B&B, we were greeted with cool drinks, delicious home made snacks and a refreshingly cool room with a lovely view of the lake. The Lakeside B&B is prettier than the pictures both inside and out, our hosts more than accommodating. We were made to feel at home in this magical respite. We all slept well and were treated like members of the family. And just before we had to leave, we were served a delcious meal. We can't wait to return next year!

This is a beautiful B&B in the Finger Lakes region on Owasko Lake. The home is lovely. Judy, the host, is delightful and extremely accommodating. She thinks of everything to make your stay enjoyable and easy, and she also makes delicious breakfasts.
