“Warm & Inviting Fall Getaway”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

My husband & I had never been to the Finger Lakes region, so we picked the Savannah House based solely on photos and reviews. We were not disappointed! Our room was very cozy and immaculately clean – with super soft sheets and towels, an electric fireplace for ambiance (!) and simple but elegant little decorative touches throughout. Everything smelled fresh & clean. We had a nice view of Seneca lake from our window & caught the changing leaves at their peak. Pat & Brenda were great hosts – very friendly and welcoming. They were a great help with information about the area along with places to visit and eat. They have done a great job transforming this little gem into a wonderful place to stay.

The beds are so comfortable, it is hard to leave in the morning. But the delicious morning coffee is a great incentive. The bed sheets and linens were soft and perfect. The owners are like gracious hosts. The property is beautiful and the view of the lake is really spectacular. The leaves were changing and the fall colors were outstanding. On our first night we sat by the outdoor fire and enjoyed the company of fellow guests. We have definitely decided to make every effort to return next fall.

You came at the perfect time to enjoy the peak fall foliage on the Wine Trail. We too look forward to that time of year and never tire of it. Having an unending source of worlsd class wine nearby only adds to that experience. On top of that, we get to meet and spend time with many great guests like you. Thank you for your warm and sincere comments. You will always have friends here.

The Savannah House just glows with the warmth and personality of the owners … it is so obvious that Brenda and Pat love what they do; it reflects in every aspect of the Inn.
The boutique-style rooms are both elegant and welcoming. Everything looks, smells and fells so fresh and clean.
We doubt that you will find a more warm and genuine welcome from any Innkeeper anywhere! We felt like favorite family members returning home!
Memories of sitting around the roaring outdoor fireplace with friends and other guests … and Brenda’s matchless gourmet morning coffee are just a few of so many added touches of service superiority.

Room Tip: We loved Rooms 1 and 2 ... they are near the outdoor fireplace! All the rooms we saw were beautiful...

We stayed at Arrowhead cottage for 3 nights in the second week of October 2012 and had the most amazing time. The cottage is on the lake front and has its own pier leading onto the lake. The view was breathtaking. Pat and Brenda have been so helpful replying to my emails very quickly and were very welcoming when we got there even though we arrived quite late. Pat was there to greet us and kindly spent some time with us answering any questions we had about the area and sorted us out with contact details of people that we might need to do various activities etc, which we used. We unfortunately got the check out time wrong and left an hour late, but pat was really nice about it and didn't make a fuss at all, which was very kind. Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend it to anyone. The area was quiet and peaceful which was exactly what we wanted after having been in e city for a week. We visited Watkins glen state park which was very nearby and had a lovely time there too, it was absolutely stunning.

Kate and family were a pleasure to have as guests, and we were happy to see that they had such a good time at our place. Their late departure was an honest oversight, and they did such a good job picking up before they left that our housekeeper had smooth sailing as a result. We were impressed that they were so conscientious and that they appreciated the manor in which we prepared the cottage for them. We very much appreciate Kate's wonderful comments and hope she and her family will visit us again.

My fiancé and I decided to have a spontaneous trip to Seneca Lake, after struggling to find a place with availability we came across The Savannah House and we are so glad we did. Pat and Brenda are the perfect hosts who clearly love the area and are extremely helpful in regards to places to eat and things to do. The room was perfectly clean with a cozy bed and breakfast feel. The bed was comfortable and the towels were soft. After staying at multiple places in the Seneca Lake area we have finally found our forever spot and can't wait to return! Thank you again Pat and Brenda for your hospitality and kindness, we will see you this winter! - Jeremy and Hannah

Thank you Jeremy and Hanna - you were a delight. Seeing how much you appreciate the area, and what we try to do for our guests, is very rewarding for us. You will no longer have to worry about a place to stay in wine country. Just be sure to reserve as soon as you know you're coming :)

Just returned from Savanna House Inn after spending 3 nights. Would highly recommend this Inn. We had the pleasure of staying in the suite ... so spacious, super clean, fine linens, comfortable bed, spectacular views. We booked this getaway relying soley on the website & reviews and they did not disappoint. Pat & Brenda were the friendliest hosts & strived to make our comfort their priority. Thank you for that !! We were welcomed like old friends and felt like that the entire stay.

Just got back from a great stay at Savannah House. The owners -- Pat & Brenda -- are just so super nice! Almost felt like we were staying with friends. They had a campfire going on the cool nights which made a lovely gathering place for us with our travel companions (better than hanging in someone's room!). The room linens were super soft and comfy --it was hard to get up and execute our plans for the day! The view of the lake is gorgeous, the grounds are amazing. I wished we could stay longer just to sit around and relax with the lovely books and magazines they provided. I'd love to go back -- but I'd stay longer so I could spend more time lounging at the inn. Thank you!
