We travelled to New York from Scotland and hired a car to travel upstate and see some of the smaller places. We are huge fans of staying in old historical buildings so I was delighted when my husband found this place and booked a night here. The communication from the owners was great right from booking up to arrival. Don was a great host and we felt right at home in this beautiful place. Our room was stunning with fantastic views. The terrace at the front literally meets the water of the lake and sitting out there was extremely relaxing and peaceful.
Breakfast in the morning was delicious and generous and the tour of the lighthouse was interesting. I really loved this place. I wish it wasn't so far away because I want to go back!
