“Quaint Hotel”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

This is an old hotel that my only thought is quaint. We spent one night there, was ok, nothing special. Continental breakfast was good had homemade scones that were excellent. Restaurant at hotel was just ok nothing outstanding.

Carpets are disgusting. Room from night before was never cleaned. Finnaly at 3pm after speaking with the useless mgr they cleaned it. The other guests checking in also had to wait for the room to be readied. Furniture is old and dirty. Bathroom is disgusting. No hooks or vanity to place items on. Have to use the floor or toilet lid. Peeling paint and exposed pipes. This place needs a major overhaul. With the room rates they are, it should look like a palace. We've stayed at all 3 inns in Caz and this is the worse. Try the Brae Loch. Better staff and rooms.

Lincklaen House is on a charming main street in a charming central NY town. It is a wonderful, sturdy old Federal style brick building that has been beautifully cared for by several generations of preservation-minded owners. We enjoyed our stay very much and even added on an extra night. The staff was friendly and accommodating but not intrusive or overly interested in us.
We were there at a slow time and were able to score a suite with a kitchenette for $125 a night. The bedroom was dominated by a huge four-poster king bed. The bathroom featured a giant whirlpool tub and separate shower. The living room/kitchen looked out over Main Street and three big windows let in lots of light. It was an extremely pleasant place to hang out, and the internet service was excellent.
We had two really enjoyable meals in the pub downstairs. I especially loved the old part of the pub with tables, walls and benches carved with the initials of generations of college students. (Well, I guess they weren’t necessarily college students but it seemed very student-y.)
It’s not easy taking care of an old building like this, especially as an independently owned and operated property. I totally understand that the carpets will not always be pristine and staffing may be a little thin. I am basically in awe of the commitment necessary to keep a wonderful place like this going.
If I could offer any constructive feedback to Lincklaen, I would suggest stocking a few luggage racks, replacing worn bed pillows, being sure the kitchenette is stocked with appropriate dishes and pans. More ambitious improvements might be upgrading the bed linens (Towels were very nice and thick.) and replacing some of the uninspiring furnishings and décor with period pieces available just down the road at the famous antiques market in Bouckville for prices comparable to HomeGoods. Perhaps Amanda Bury, owner of a very attractive antiques shop next door would help select some furnishings in exchange for a few meals.
There is a selection of interesting places to stay and eat in Caz. We were happy with our choice!

We stayed at The Lincklaen House while attending a family party that was held there and found everything very enjoyable. From the food served to the room we were in, and ending with brunch on Sunday there was not one aspect I could find fault with. Plenty of room in the suite with clean comfortable furnishings. Staff was friendly and attentive. I would definitely stay again.

My husband and I have enjoyed the Lincklaen House with a large group of friends every year for 12+ years. The rooms are spacious, beds are clean and comfortable, and the food is second to none. Made from scratch delicacies such as house made popovers, sushi, fresh fish, and one of the best made Bloody Mary's I've ever tasted! You will not be disappointed! Make sure you stay for the Sunday brunch...YUM!!

Had a wonderful visit to this quaint historical inn. Food and service was great along with free wifi, continental breakfast, and even a computer room to print boarding passes. The main dining room has reasonable prices, a nice menu and is well decorated. A Sunday brunch buffet is offered for 11.95 how can you go wrong!! The 7 Steps Pub in the basement has a great menu available all day and is a great place to hangout and relax.....Overall this I had a great experience and look forward to visiting again. For the other reviewers who are critical your right its not the Ritz....your in Cazenovia!!!

Great atmosphere in this older (1835!) hotel, but service and amenities are average at best. Rooms are quaint, and most are nicely furnished - although some are so strangely shaped that they are difficult to get around in. The continental breakfast is a nice touch, but the only place that the free wireless works well is in the lobby. Even the second floor is marginal for getting online, and one of my colleagues on the third floor could not even see the network. Housekeeping was spotty as well - hair left in the tub and on the sink, and the toilet was not flushed, so not cleaned. Would love to recommend, as it is central to Cazenovia, has a great tavern, and the bed was comfortable, but if you need to get work done you might want to make sure you get a room with internet access and a desk.

Room Tip: get the suites if you can - check that internet works for you.
