What an amazing place to stay. I have never felt so at home away from home. We traveled to the Benn Conger for a family wedding, and it was magnificent. The Inn Keepers/Owners, Peter Zon and Douglas Yurubi, made us feel so at home. The rooms were absolutely magnificent. I recommend the original building. The attention to detail in the arches, windows, eclectic furnishings, etc., is unsurpassed. The newer building features things like jetted bathtubs and separate showers, but I so prefer the older with character. Peter and Doug rescued this property from foreclosure and destruction and have painstakingly restored it to its former magnificence. Mr. Conger would be pleased. It's only about 20-25 minutes from Cornell University. They even have a vegetable garden - what can get fresher than that. I would absolutely, without a doubt stay here again, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone travelling to that area.
