We drive to Syracuse yearly to visit relatives. This last time we decided to make it more of a vacation so we chose Ophelia's for its location near I-690, pleasant looking rooms on the website, reasonable price and lovely grounds. We were not disappointed! Our room..the French Room...was spacious, comfy with plenty of closet and drawer space and the bathroom still had the original tub, sink and toilet from the 1920's. The house itself is chockful of interesting antique furniture, collectibles, art and beautiful rugs. We spent quite a bit of time just looking at everything both inside and outside the home. We saw deer and groundhogs every day. Breakfast was great.....juice, coffee, fruit, eggs, toast, etc. The best thing about Ophelia's is Annie Ophelia and David. They are friendly and gracious hosts. Within a short time we felt relaxed and at home which made the stay there the highlight of the trip.
