Loose Moose Lodge Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #7 of 12 Penn Yan B&B and Inns
Reviewed July 31, 2013

My wife and I along with friends of ours stayed at the Loose Moose July 27, 2013 while touring the wineries. Upon a late afternoon arrival Jennine, Dennis and Scout warmly greeted us as we pulled into their driveway and parked. They showed us to our rooms (there are two and each includes a private bathroom and shower) and let the four of us decide which to take. We opted for the 2nd floor Lake Room and appears exactly as shown on their web page. This entire log cabin is paneled in real wood, is well furnished and one is left feeling a sense of genuine comfort after only a few minutes stay.

After unpacking we sat discussing everything from how the home was built to where to eat for dinner. The hosts offered several local options and we decided on the more casual Switzerland Inn right down the road; the food was very good and the service attentive. Before dinner Jennine asked if we need to store anything in their refrigerator and we placed a bottle of champagne in for sipping upon return from our evening.

After returning from dinner the six of us sat at their kitchen bar, engaged in lively conversation, sipped the wine and ate desert prepared by our hosts. As the night wore on we dug into the freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and received instruction on how to operate their Keurig for the early risers. Only, there wasn't early risers because both couples commented how their beds were very comfortable. Coffee, along with cream/sugar, was already prepared by 7:30 AM and we were given a choice of coffee from the Keurig or the carafe.

Breakfast was a real delight at this Bed and Breakfast. Before we retired for the evening Jennine asked what we would like in the morning. Along with several options presented we decided on a simple, yet very good, scrambled eggs, bacon and pancakes. Our hosts provided fresh fruit, yogurt, granola and freshly baked muffins for additional breakfast options as the six of us gathered at their large dining room table. Upon check-out Jennine placed a small credit card slider on her cell phone and charged our rooms separately for each couple. After receiving very good driving directions for our next destination we were escorted to the porch for a customary group photo with the standing Moose statue.

This Bed and Breakfast is a real winner and the hosts made every detailed effort to help us feel relaxed in their spotless home. We were impressed with our stay, hosts and food. In fact, we booked another night for a stay 4 months from now!

My husband and I stayed at the Loose Moose Bed and Breakfast over the Memorial Day week-end. The setting is a very beautiful log cabin lodge about half way down the right arm of the "Y" shaped Keuka lake. The room was very neat and well kept, the place was very warm and inviting. Jennine, Dennis and Scout (the dog) were very welcoming and hospitable.
The breakfast in the morning was made to order and absolutely fantastic. There was plenty of fresh fruit strawberries, blueberries, melons, pineapples, and kiwi. We had excellent waffles, granola, orange juice, toast, excellent potatoes and more. We are both vegetarians and hosts were very accommodating to our diet.
My husband was able to find an excellent running path along Keuka lake for his morning run, not far from here.
All in all, it was a very relaxing stay for us. It is a great find. We will not hesitate to call Jennine for another night stay if we are in the area.
You will find this place accessible for both the Keuka and the Seneca Lake wine trails.

My fiancée and I stayed one night at the Loose Moose Lodge, and it was fantastic. The lodge is a log cabin tucked away in the woods on Keuka Lake. The rooms were immaculate and comfortable, and the entire building is warm, inviting and tastefully decorated. Our hosts (and their dog) made us feel extremely welcome, and the breakfast they prepared was over-the-top with Belgian waffles, eggs, bacon, fresh fruit, yogurt, and so on. We stayed in the Lake Room, which felt very private. We also appreciated the "no minimum stay" policy that made it possible for us to get away for a quick trip. Would definitely stay there again, and recommend to our friends!

We LOVED the Loose Moose Lodge. This was our first time staying at a B&B and let's just say Jennine and Dennis have set the bar VERY high. Their place is gorgeous---beautiful log cabin, super comfortable beds and located near restaurants and wineries. The breakfast they prepared was amazing and they treated us like royalty. I would highly recommend this B&B. Say hello to their dog Scout too. He always welcomed us to their home!!!

We only stayed 1 night at the Loose Moose but we didn't want to leave. Jennine, Dennis, and their adorable dog, Scout made us feel right at home. They prepared a beautiful breakfast in the morning and gave us some tips of places nearby to visit. The house is stunning! All the beauty of a rustic log cabin with the luxuries of air conditioning and super-soft sheets. Definitely the nicest B&B we've stayed in!

Room Tip: Book ahead of time, especially on long weekends.

Just stayed at the Loose Moose and loved it. If you like quite, peaceful, and beauty - this is the B&B for you! Not your typical Victorian - NO, this is a well appointed log cabin surrounded by trees, wild flowers, and silence. The Innkeepers (Dennis & Jennine) truly have the gift of hospitality. Having made the journey from California to this Finger Lakes retreat, I say it was worth it!
