Are you looking for the perfect B&B getaway? I would recommend that you look no further than the Juniper Hill Bed & Breakfast. This is what a stay at a B&B is meant to be--gorgeous, well-appointed rooms, delicious and thoughtful breakfasts, and friendly innkeepers.
I've stayed in perhaps a dozen bed and breakfasts and would wholeheartedly rate this my outstanding favorite. I had the special opportunity to stay at Juniper Hill for seven days, which provided me with a wealth of experiences to rate my stay. They were all superior--the variety and quality of the breakfasts, the fine bedding and furnishings, and the attention to detail. From the Bose sterio system in my steam shower, to heated tile floors, to playing special music just for you during breakfast, Bruce will seemingly go to any length to ensure your stay is special. He even sent me off with muffins and biscotti to take on my plane flight home.
Bruce, Dave, and Celeste (your canine innkeeper) are so hospitable. They went out of their way to create a luxurious stay, but one where I also felt at home. I stayed in the Hale suite, which had the most beautiful window dressings and bedding, and perhaps the most sumptuous robe I've every worn. Every morning, Bruce would provide coffee upstairs before breakfast and make a special effort to bring me milk instead of cream (my preference.) He was always welcome to my special requests.
You'll also find yourself lost in their beautiful art collection. There you are--sleeping in an art gallery! You can curl up by the fire with one of their many books, or watch a DVD on your in-room flat screen (probably better than the TV at home), or take one of Bruce's restaurant recommendations. He clued me in to the Hazelnut Kitchen, just a two-block walk, which I would now consider one of upstate New York's best culinary experiences. Delicious, locally-sourced, organic ingredients made right in front of you by the chef/owner. What could be better?
Okay, I know that I am gushing, but it's well-deserved. This is well worth the price. I plan to go back again and again to visit these special people. They really have made every effort to preserve this historic home and you should support their efforts. You'll be proud to know that your lodging dollars are staying right there in Trumansburg and helping to support such great people.
