“Benn Conger Inn is Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2010

We just spent Thanksgiving at The Benn Conger Inn in Groton New York. It is apsolutely fantastic;
Clean
Beautiful
Spacious

Peter and Doug, the owners, are wonderful gentlemen. Their greeting and attitude during our stay was warm, enthusiastic, charming and very pleasant.

Our daugther lives in Groton and The Benn Conger Inn serves as our home away from home. I'm sure you will enjoy the experience. We look forward to our next visit!

We had a wonderfull wedding for our daughter at the Inn. We occupied all 10 rooms with family and cllose friends. The owners were really great, friendly and good listeners. They provided everything needed or recommended vendors for flowers and pictures. They delivered on everything discussed ahead of time. They provided the dinner as well as breakfast and lunches for the two days we stayed there. Everyone was very complimentory about the accomodations which ran from antiques to the eccectic. A real interesting place to stay and party. A large comfortable common room on the second floor served as the after party location. In Autumn a great setting, with lots of interesting places for guests to visit including waterfalls and vinyards.

We stayed at the Benn Conger on a recommendation from a friend, and we were delighted with our stay from top to bottom. We stayed in one of the beautifully furnished suites, and thorougly enjoyed both the fireplace and the whirlpool following a fun day exploring the Finger Lakes and Ithaca. On our second night, we had dinner in the restaurant at the Benn Conger (Prime Rib night!), and believe me, we were not disappointed. Benn Conger Inn is a gem of an inn, and we'll be back!

My husband and I were visiting the Ithaca area and needed a place to stay. We happened upon the Benn Conger Inn, and what a wonderful "find" it was!! This charming Inn sits on a beautiful piece of property in Groton, NY (about 20 minutes from Ithaca). The service and warm hospitality provided by the Innkeepers was outstanding. We were pleased to find a cozy bar (where we had good wine, cheese and crackers) and a lovely, intimate restaurant. We decided to dine there (in a glass-enclosed "sun-room) and the food was delicious! Our room (in the main house) was very spacious and tastefully decorated. Bed was comfortable and we awoke to hot coffee, a delicious egg dish, fruit, juice & cereal. We'll be back for sure!

My husband and I have stayed at this Inn on numerous occasions. Our daughter attends Cornell University and we stay here every time we visit her or pick her up because of the level of service we get and the beautiful surroundings. Very friendly and accommodating hosts bring us back again and again.

The Benn Conger is a surprisingly sophisticated hotel found in the heart of the Finger Lakes. The personable owners were super-attuned to our every request, no matter how trivial. We were pampered! Our room was in the Victorian annex, and was modern, extremely clean and nicely decorated. We had a luscious dinner after making last-minute reservations, and enjoyed the spotless, crisp table linens and service as much
as the wonderfully-presented and reasonably-priced food. A quick tour of the Inn followed dinner. Our king-sized bed featured an antique bedstead, and the spacious bathroom had lots of extra towels and a Jacuzzi. Breakfast was an elegant continental one, quite filling. We would recommend the Benn Conger to anyone visiting the Finger Lakes.

We stayed in absolutely charming room in the adjacent cottage. Spacious, tastefully decorated with a large balcony overlooking an immaculately kept property. The room also had a beautiful whirlpool equipped bathroom. The king sized bed was very firm and provided a great night's sleep.
We ate dinner in the recently redecorated main dining room in the Inn. We started with an extrordinary grilled artichoke appetizer, followed by prime rib for me, and twin petite filets for Susie. Each was prepared perfectly. The filets came with garlic mashed potatoes and I had roasted red russets that were prepared perfectly and served piping hot. The buttered baby carrots were served crisp but not underdone. A fabulous meal for two at 2/3rd's of the price for a meal for one the night before in NYC, and this was better on all counts.
The next morning our hosts accommodated our desire to lounge leisurely in the room, but providing our breakfast in the room, and it was great. I don't know if they could do that on a busier day, but it was an indication to me that they will go out of their way to anything reasonable to accommodate the needs of their guests.
