My wife and another couple traveled around to local wineries and stopped mid-way to stay at the Fox Inn B&B. This B&B is a great old mansion, kept in gorgeous decor and clean condition; in inn-keepers were friendly and helpful.
We stayed in the William Fox two-room suite. A door separates the suite from the main hallway, and in the suite, a hallway separates each of the three rooms: two bedrooms and a bathroom. Both rooms were very nice, containing a welcome basket of snacks and bottled water, and were equipped with A/C. The bathroom was wonderful with a gorgeous faux-marble shower.
Breakfast is made-to-order at 8 or 9:30am. We selected items from a list the night before, and the menu was excellent: juices, teas, coffee, yogurt (with blueberries and strawberries) or a fruit dish, and eight or so main courses with variations, including light breakfast options, creme brule french toast (my choice and was delicious!) and your choice of 3 variations of frittatas (one of the main eight options). Everyone was more than satisfied with their meals.
As a suggestion if you are wine-touring, pick up the $12 Passport in one of the winery gift shops. It has free tastings at 7 of the 10 main wineries on Keuka and discounts at wineries, restaurants, and B&Bs like this one. We got a great deal!
