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:)
