Deb and Bob were great hosts, giving us dining and activity suggestions in the area. Brakfast was outstanding! We didn't really need lunch afterwards!

Deborah and Robert provided the perfect setting and went out of their way to help make a get together with friends from Canada much more than just an enjoyable surprise for my wife, who recently retired. The accommodations were clean and very comfortable. The food was outstanding and included delicious breakfasts as well as a specially arranged dinner with a choice of lamb, chicken, or steak on Sunday evening, and fresh fruit, cheeze, and crackers when we arrived. Most importantly was how comfortable Deborah and Robert made us feel and how much we enjoyed their company too. It actually seemed like the four of us were visiting two other close friends. Oh, I almost forgot the outstanding chocolate cake Deborah made for dessert and of which we were provided with an additional piece when departing. Deborah and Robert, thank you so much!

Deborah and Robert's home is by far one of my favorite places to stay. They really know how to do it right! My husband and I have no complaints. Chocolates and brandy in the room, the most comfortable mattress I have ever slept on. The kitchen is for guests so you can feel free to use it, since they have another living area for themselves. These two are so very accommodating, gracious and helpful. They want to make your stay perfect and they do! I would stay here again! This is a nice place to stay if you are visiting Sackett's Harbor or Watertown. It is close by to these towns and there are some nice antique places in the area, which we love to shop at. We could not have asked for anything more and only wished we had stayed here more than one night.

From the first phone call I knew that this was going to be an incredible experience! Deborah and Robert were very accommodating, extremely attentive, and went above and beyond all expectations, needs and desires. Their hospitality and personalized service was on par with any Four Diamond establishment. Deborah and Robert treated us as if we were long friends, and with warmth and great conversation. Deborah’s breakfasts started our days off with such pleasure, and Robert added humor and great stories to our meals. The rooms were wonderfully decorated, extremely clean, very cozy and comfortable, and came with perks of bottled water and brandy. Shower provisions were supplied and towels were abundant. We enjoyed breakfast on the back terrace, and evening conversation on the front porch. Visit in the summer when you can enjoy the beautiful garden and the quietness of the quaint town. Stroll around the house to admire the art, antiques, stained glass, interior finishings and the china. There is a neat story behind everything! The price was extremely reasonable in comparison with other B&Bs in Upstate New York, and especially with the level of service received. Coming from a family of restaurateurs, and being a constant traveler myself, I without hesitation recommend Dexter 1855 House for business and/or pleasure. Truly a wonderful stay!! As Deborah insisted, we left with no bags under our eyes!

I stayed at the Dexter 1855 House Bed & Breakfast in 2010 and had a lovely experience. I needed temporary lodging in Jan 2011, and thought this would be the perfect place. My husband and I both spoke with the owners by telephone and thought I would have the perfect set up. I inquired about their carriage house which was more private and apartment like. It was occupied, but was told they had another room I might be interested in. I was told there was an efficiency-like room on the ground floor that had its own entrance. If I committed, I could rent it for $900 per month. I was planning on staying 5 months. I was late on my arrival date, but had spoken by telephone to the wife of the owner. I told her that I would be happy to pay for my efficiency room so I wouldn't lose it. I arrived 3 days behind schedule and was shown by the owner to a differenct room than what we talked about. He acted annoyed and said they hadn't heard from me. I stated that I contacted his wife. I said I reserved the Lincoln Room, and he then took me there. Once I saw the room, I was very upset. It was not an efficiency. The room was simply a guest room/private bath that could be entered from the house's interior, and had it's own door to the outside. There was no kitchenette. I felt very deceived. I had just driven 18 hours over 2 days thinking that I would have the perfect place to stay temporarily. I expressed my concerns to which the owner said it is actually better than an efficiency because I had the use of the main house's kitchen and common living area. That may be true for some, but this was not what I was told, nor what I expected or asked for. I immediately started looking for other arrangements because I did not trust the owner any longer. I found a small rental immediately. Instead of being gracious about their obvious mistake in room description, I was charged $280 for one night's stay. Keep in mind they charge $300 a week for long term guests. They charged me for the delayed time of my arrival, my one night's stay, plus an additional day for having my suitcase in their B&B while I looked for other accomodations. The bottom line is I was decieved and had to pay $280 for it.

From my first phone call to checkout, deb and robert made me feel like family, in the most positive sense of the word. And wait til you taste debs cooking!! Professional yet laid back at the same time, the innkeepers could not be more welcoming. Rooms are spacious and and quiet and mine had a bath and flat screen tv. Can't wait to go back!
