My husband and I just returned from our first trip to Hummingbirds Home. It's a good thing we had not seen nor listened to the negative review below, because if we had, we might have deprived ourselves of one of the nicest, warmest B&B experiences we've had in the Finger Lakes region. Please... go there and form your own opinion. You will be pleased that you did.
Sabina is a most accomplished innkeeper and no novice to hospitality. She makes a lovely breakfast. Our room was comfortable and sweetly appointed, our accomodations immaculate. The B&B is located about a mile from the center of town, in a quiet location. We also had the loan of Max the dog to pet, since we were missing our own.
We have friends who have owned and run an old inn for decades. They've told us similar stories. Innkeepers may be able to control many things, but an uncontrollable factor is how guests may behave after they arrive. Even with the most tactful handling on the innkeepers or their representative's part, some people may refuse to cooperate. Running an inn is not an easy task, and pleasing everyone, as you can tell, is well nigh impossible.
