Los Gatos Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 12 Penn Yan B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 5, 2008

We stayed three summer nights in the Blue room as guests of Burney and Susan and had a terrific stay. Although air conditioning was available, we opened our windows and slept with the fresh, cool night air and quiet ceiling fan. The location is about a mile north of downtown Penn Yan, close enough to restaurants and the lakes but away from most of the traffic. The night sky was dark and our host brought his telescope out during our visit to allow us to view Jupiter and several nebulas.
The breakfasts were quite a treat with Burney and Susan making every effort to offer meals that were a culinary feast. Local fruits and preserves were served on home made English muffins and creative house specialties completed the meals. We never had the same meal served twice.
To keep trim after the excellent breakfast, you might consider a swim in their pool or a country hike.
The hosts were very knowledgeable about local restaurants and wineries and offered some great suggestions of fun places to visit.
Their clean home is divided so that guests maintain privacy. There is a sun room where you may get to know the other Los Gatos visitors or relax with books and magazines about the area . Two cabins are also on the property for guests but we only stayed inside the main house.
We cannot rave enough about Los Gatos. You will have a restful stay in one of the most scenic areas of New York state.

This was a great get away, we had the suite upstairs which has a comfortable homey feel with a sitting room and balcony overlooking the rolling fields. The breakfasts were wonderful -- and having the coffee waiting when we got downstairs in the morning was a treat. The hosts were friendly and helpful when needed and left us alone when we wanted. Lots to see in the area, two lakes close by, wineries, fun restaurants, local crafts and produce. A relaxing change of pace. We spent a week and would do it again!

This is a great bed and breakfast. Burney and Susan Baron make you feel comfortable from the moment you arrive. Our room was maticulously clean and well equipped and there wasn't a detail missed by our hosts.

It surely didn't hurt to wake up to fresh ground coffee and a gourmet breakfast each morning, with fresh jams made by the Baron's.

This is definitely a spot to place on your travel list and I am sure that we will return often.

We came to explore the Finger Lakes, and Los Gatos B&B proved to be the perfect place to start. The folks at the inn had great ideas for places to visit: beautiful waterfalls, friendly wineries, fantastic restaurants. They even gave a tour of the night sky with their huge telescope- complete with a beautiful comet! Three days were not enough to see the area...we are planning another trip!

Our stay at Los Gatos this fall was wonderful. Our only complaint was that we wish we could have stayed longer! When we arrived we were warmly welcomed by our hosts Burney and Susan. They have a beautiful piece of property located just outside of Penn Yann, which is a great stopping point if visiting the Finger Lakes region. After getting settled into our room (Sage room) we did a tour of the property - between their gorgeous flower gardens, peaceful woods and relaxing porch swing it was tough to get me inside. Los Gatos also has a great back porch on both the upper and lower levels where you can sit back, relax, and sip wine compliments of Susan and Burney. I think the most special thing about our trip was that when we came back from a delicious dinner (suggest by our hosts) Burney had out his telescope and shared with all of the guests about a 45 min -1hr guided viewing of the night sky. It was absolutely amazing! If that wasn’t enough, after an excellent night’s sleep we had the best breakfast ever! The multi-course meal included poached pears in orange juice, followed by baby dutch apple, homemade English muffins (with homemade jams) and bacon. We can’t wait to come back again!

What a great place to stay! The hosts were very friendly, our room was beautiful, and breakfast was fantastic-- the home-made jams are great! We even had a friendly cat to play with in the evening... I'll definately be going back again!
