We've stayed at many B&Bs before and typically love the experience but our stay at the Bout Time B&B got a little tricky.

While I can't say anything bad about Becky - her cooking is absolutely delicious and she's definitely a nice lady ...there's too much to say about Bob who makes you feel uneasy and a little apprehensive.

When going in the winter, especially re-consider staying at this B&B since they do not clear their driveways. On our 2nd night, we got stuck driving into the parking lot of the B&B. We were about 15 steps away from the house so instead of just calling, we came in. Bob & Becky didn't seem to be around so we gave them a call...and that's when we heard an earful. Bob was screaming angrily and calling us names - bieng completely rude and unnecessarily harsh. All we needed was help getting the car into the parking lot which should have been cleared to begin with!

Becky's "apology" for Bob was that he was angry and sometimes people say bad things out of anger. Why was Bob so angry? Were we not guests that paid? Did we call late? (We called at 8pm)

This experience completely ruined our view of the B&B and we will never return!

Furthermore, while we love pets, the B&B clearly stated that the pets from the home remain in a separate area ....my friends staying next door got a surprise visit from the B&B's owners dog who ventured upstairs to their room!

I loved Gunny (their dog) but its not appropriate to have the dogs run loose.

All in all here's the pro and con summary:

Pros:
Great Location
Good breakfast
Nice Hot Tub

Cons:
BOB JAMES - rude and fake
Bad Service
Dogs run around house (in case you are allergic, this is a big no no)
Rooms a bit old
Bathrooms are tiny (no tub in room)
All rooms are on 2nd floor (in case you have trouble walking up)
The owners are really loud and have 2 children so if you are in the common room trying to relax - you hear screaming and laughing from the owner family

We stayed three nights in the room with the postage size bathroom and made out just fine considering that I am a very overweight woman. We loved having our own deck that looked out front . I am a light sleeper and with the floor fan going for white noise slept like a baby. We have traveled and stayed in many b and b's and would gladly come back here when in the area.

We stayed for two nights in early October with old Army friends. We gather annually to tell war stories and remember the good old days. So we need a place with a large, comfortable living room, clean, comfortable rooms with atmosphere, and wonderful breakfasts. Mix in a great view of Seneca Lake, and I've just described Bout Time. Hosts Becky and Bob couldn't have been more hospitable or kinder. And that's saying something about a Marine! We all had an unforgettable time and heartily recommend Bout Time to anyone.

Bob and Becky James made our group of three retired military friends and wives feel instantly welcome. The rooms were spacious and clean and Becky's breakfast will become the gold standard from which to measure all future B & B's. We could not have been more please or satisfied!!

This B&B is a wonderful place to rest your head. Becky is charming, sweet, friendly and most accommodating. You will not find a person running a B&B that will try to please you more than Becky will. The rooms are clean and very comfortable which is all anyone can ask. If you are looking for opulance or regal accommodations then you might try somewhere else. If you want good clean accommodations with a woman that will dazzle you with her cooking then 'Bout Time B&B is the place for you. It may not be the fanciest B&B in the world but it is a great place to stay with an outstanding hostess!
