“A romantic weekend getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012 via mobile

My boyfriend and I just returned from an amazing weekend at the Finger Lakes and the reason we had so much fun can be directly attributed to the proprietors of the Savannah House Inn, Pat and Brenda! Before we even arrived I sent an e-mail asking about the best bicycle store and Pat responded quickly and directed us to visit Geneva Bike Shop- an amazing place where we mapped out a cycling tour for the weekend. We arrived in the early evening to a warm welcome from Brenda. She escorted us to our room, the Salt Water Taffy room, decorated entirely in pink! My boyfriend did not seem thrilled but everyone laughed about how he would fit in like a bull in a china shop. Brenda certainly has a knack not only for decorating but also for gauging personalities and making everyone feel so welcome! She took one look at us and could tell that we were low key and directed us to a few local haunts in Himrod which had extremely good atmosphere and food! Don't miss the Himrod Eagle and the Dairyman's Diner-make sure you try the buckwheat cakes(locally milled in Penn Yan)
I could not stop raving about them! We had a blast exploring the lakes and wineries and spent quiet evenings watching the sun set over the vineyards across the way. Upon our departure Brenda gifted me with a bag of buckwheat flour (!) and warmly hugged us goodbye. I almost shed a tear when we pulled away, feeling like I was saying goodbye to family. They even sent a short and scarf I left in the room back to me. We can't wait for our fall foliage trip! Hopefully our friends will join us this time at the Savannah House:)

We stayed in the motel part of Savannah House. Although it looks like an ordinary motel from the outside, Brenda has decorated the rooms with care and inspiration. The colors of the room, choice of linens, and other decorative touches create an atmosphere -- in addition to the fabulous view from the back window -- that is soothing and very pleasant indeed. The grounds are lovely and the whole area is wonderful.

I rented a lake house on Perry Point through The Savannah House for my daughter's wedding weekend on Seneca Lake. The house was exactly what the pictures showed on the website. We stayed in a large four bedroom house that was right on the lake. From the living and dining rooms all you can see is the lake. The view was breath taking. The house was spotless with all the amenities of home. All of the bedrooms were good sized and the master bedroom has its own bath. We were very comfortable and would recommend the Savannah House to anyone looking for a great place to stay on the lake. By the way, the hot tub was an added bonus.

We all really enjoyed our stay at Savannah House Inn last November 2011!! It is charming place with a beautiful view. The owners Pat and Brenda make you feel like you are home with their touches and try to appease to your needs every moment.

They start your mornings with the most delicous coffee and teas and they end your day with a cozy fire so that we got sit with our friends... all 16 of us! They reccomended wonderful eating establishments and of course the vineyards.

The rooms are incredibly clean and very cozy for two. We stayed in the sute and so that our friends can come share breakfast with us in our big kitchen and living room.

If there is any concern or any need you might have... Pat and Brenda sure know how to accomidate you!!!

My husband and I have stayed with Pat and Brenda at the Savannah House many times so when we decided to get married in the Finger Lakes we thought of them first. How lucky did! Between 3 cottages and many of the rooms at the Savannah House Inn our family and friends were able to stay close and have a place to relax. The Perry Point house worked perfectly for our evening get together with family and friends and pre-wedding preparations. Pat and Brenda were so helpful and got us any extras we needed.

We entered the suite the evening of our wedding to soft music, candles, and a bottle of wine. The perfect ending to a perfect day. We're looking forward to coming back soon to sit and watch the beautiful sunrise.

We love going to the Finger Lakes wineries but didn't want a hotel/motel. We are a group of 22 friends who like to get together at night and hang out and talk. Most places don't have an area we can do that in other than a bar. We wanted something more homey. Pat and Brenda delivered when they recommended their cottages. Twelve of us stayed at their Perry Pont Cottage and LOVED it! As one freind said "It's f---- beautiful!! Can we book now for next year?" We loved the view, the hot tub, the bedrooms, the room to spread out in... When the rest of the gang showed up for dinner Saturday night, all 22 of us had plenty of room. There were even card tables and extra chairs downstairs to use, which came in handy. We are definately coming back naext year. Thanks, Pat and Brenda.

We decided on a trip to the Finger Lakes for my friend's bachelorette party. After much research on the area, I contacted several places to inquire about accomodations and package. The owners of The Savannah House, Pat & Brenda, were very responsive! They walked me through options and answered all of my questions, and I had plenty. When we arrived, we were greeted by Pat and Brenda - they were very excited to have us and to show us their Inn. We were booked at the lakefront cottages, which were a bit down the road. Pat gave us directions and many helpful ideas on places to eat and visit. The cottages were fantastic - the view from the one cottage was remarkable - it is right on the lake! The hot tub was a nice surprise for us! The 2nd cottage was only a few steps away so all the girls were able to spend a lot of time together and didn't feel separated. The massages were wonderful - great way to end the work week and begin the long weekend. They came right to the cottages - and set up with no problems. The following day we were scheduled for our 6-hour wine tour of the region - and the driver showed up on time and picked us up right in front of the cottages. He was fantastic - taking us to 7 wineries and arranging the tastings for us so we didn't wait in line! He was very knowledgeable of the region. Pat and Brenda were wonderful and their behind-the-scenes organization of the massages and wine tour made my planning of the trip so much easier. I recommend the Savannah House without hesitation and can't wait for another trip up there!
