“Our Favorite B&B”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

My husband have stayed here 4 times, and we plan to make this our home away from home every time we visit Keuka Lake. It is conveniently located in beautiful Penn Yan and close to all of our favorite wineries. Cindy and Casey are amazing hosts; they always make you feel right at home. My husband and I are vegetarians, and they've been very accomodating to us at breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, Cindy makes the best! She always makes amazing baked goods (I love the cranberry gorgonzola scones the best!), and the main course is always a treat (her bread pudding french toast and chick peas hash, yum!). We usually stay in the Music Room if it is available; it is very spacious and comfortable. I highly recommend the Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast for your next stay in wine country!

Just driving up to this lovely B&B ...it's lovely! To be honest one of the things I liked the best was that is wasn't over decorated! It was spacious and lots of natural light comfortable with tons of separate seating spots. Our room was the smallest but we chose that because we were only spending about 12 hours there...unfortunately! We were in town for the Keuka Art Festival as a vendor, I think we would have enjoyed just hanging out with a glass of wine on one of the porches! We would absolutely stay again!

My husband and I recently stayed at the Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast and enjoyed our stay. The house is spotless and there are many common rooms and a porch to relax and "hang out" in. It is located in one of the neighborhoods bordering Penn Yan and is close to both Keuka and Seneca Lakes. The property sits back a good ways from the road, so it's very quiet. Breakfast was super and there were homemade cookies available along with tea or coffee. The only thing we would have changed was to have a clock in the room.
Cindy and Casey are very gracious hosts and are very attentive to the needs of the guests. Thank you!

As always, we had a wonderful time in the Finger Lakes, but it is always made better by our stay in the Finger Lakes B&B! It is so relaxing. We love to just sit on the couch/porch and read a book at night with a nice glass of wine. And of douse, we can't wait to get up to the delicious breakfasts always accompanied by fresh fruit and a different baked good each morning! We would not want to stay anywhere else.

The Finger Lakes B&B was such a great place to stay. The owners, Cindy and Casey, will recommend the best wineries and places to eat in the area (and trust us, they did!). They are quite knowledgeable of the area. The room we stayed in (as well as the whole house) was extraordinarily clean and comfortable but not at all fussy. Our favorite part was relaxing by the bonfire at night and making smores after a few games of Bocce ball!

We can't say enough good things about this place. The proximity to both Keuka and Seneca Lakes makes wine touring easy. Farm markets and restaurants are very cose, as well.

We loved spending our Memorial Day weekend here and look forward to returning in the future!

We stumbled upon Finger Lakes Bed & Breakfast accidentally on Hotels.com when we were trying to book a last minute stay. An opening had popped up last minute and we decided to book, although we had not stayed at a Bed & Breakfast before. But we were pleasantly surprised!!

We were wine tasting at Seneca Lake and this was very easy to get to from there. The house is very cozy with lots of open common area with a TV, cards/games, a library, cookies waiting for guests, a cute porch, etc. Each room has its own bathroom/shower which was nice. And the bed was very comfortable.

We met some of the other guests at breakfast the next morning and they all seemed great. And speaking of breakfast, it was delicious!! We had pumpkin muffins waiting for us on the table and a wine glass of melon balls. Coffee was fresh and very tasty. For the main meal were served a banana pastry, some eggs, and sausage. Very very tasty! And most importantly, the hosts were more than friendly.

Overall a great experience and we're very glad we stumbled upon this place. We have already been recommending it to friends and would easily come back, hopefully for longer than 1 night this time.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sculpture room and it was wonderful! It faced the front of the house, had a big bed...

Thank you for making our trip memorable, as always! Not only did you take care of the bed and breakfast but you also were there to give everyone great suggestions for what to do around the area. The wineries recommended were excellent and we also enjoyed some great food! Can't wait to visit again!
