Greeted by Doug, one of the friendliest men we had ever met at our car when we pulled in after a long road trip in the pouring rain, we were smitten.
The inn itself is stunning; a stately 1920's colonial home, beautifully renovated and decorated with intricate detail and tasteful decor. We were in the blue room and could not get over how gorgeous the decor and comfortable the bed were.
The restaurant was lovely and the service impeccable. We sat in the solarium portion while the rain pelted down and were left to enjoy our wine long after the other patrons had left. We opted for a night in and thoroughly enjoyed the large comfortable seating area with plush couches and an oversized pillow-laden window seat. Wireless internet was also an large convenience.
The owners Doug and Peter are hands on, extremely warm and very hospitable. I have been telling everyone I know who ventures towards the finger lakes, that it is worth the small drive off of the beaten track to experience this gem of a find!
