The Inn at Gothic Eves
Ranked #3 of 9 Trumansburg B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 1, 2008

My fiance and I stayed here at the last minute when other plans fell through and were pleasantly surprised when Rose and Roman had a room available and were willing to welcome us hours before normal check in. The house is in amazing condition and has been restored beautifully, with nooks and crannies and lots of surprises. Each bedroom is completely different and tucked away into the private corners of the house.
We stayed in one of the smaller, more affordable rooms with the bathroom in the hallway. This wasn't much of a problem since we were provided two cushy robes. The pillowtop bed was great, we slept like babies. They also have WIFI if you need to work on your computer.
I chose the inn mainly due to its spa services and hot tub. I didn't notice a hot tub at first glance but later realized it was a service you need to set up with the innkeepers. I did take advantage of the spa and had a wonderful massage in the very peaceful room located behind the second house on the property. My fiance enjoyed a quick round of golf on a great course less than five minutes away.
Thanks to Rose's advice we enjoyed the best dinner on our whole trip at Hazelnut Kitchen. The next morning were treated to an equally delicious breakfast-totally organic from the eggs to the homeade jam. Overall we really liked the inn's proximity to the town (walk), golf (tiny drive) and the parks and wineries (a few miles.)
This place is a find!

My wife and I stayed here for two days in July. We wished we had stayed much longer!
The location is excellent for getting to the local wineries and exploring the finger lake region. The B&B is located in a quiet village and is in walkable distance to a few good places to eat and drink.
Rose and Roman are fantastic hosts and can't do enough to help you out. They're very knowledgeable about the area and give advice as to which are the best restaraunts to eat at. Our breakfast was amazing - with local ingredients and berries picked fresh from the garden.
They have a hot tub - which is wonderful to relax in afer a day of touring the local wineries.
The rooms in the hotel have no TV - which is lovely when you want to 'get away' from everything. They're all individually themed and the furniture in the place adds to the character of the house.
A wonderful stay and would recommend it to anyone who is looking to truly relax.

My husband and I stayed at this inn for a few days to visit the wineries in the area. We are extremely satisfied with the location of the place, the room and services. The innkeepers, Roman and Rose are excellent hosts and made us felt comfortable and welcomed. They are also knowledgeable about the area and the wineries. The rooms are charming and beautiful and each has its own personality. We also wake up to home made delicious breakfast made by Roman with mostly local fresh ingredients. We highly recommend this place and will stay at this inn again if we were to visit in the future.

Looking for a nice getaway in the picturesque Finger Lakes Region of New York State, and having traveled on business in the area it didn't take me long to find the Gothic Eves Bed and Breakfast through a local search. My companion and I stayed in the Smokehouse Room, so named for the small smokehouse outside the window overlooking the backyard. I was not disappointed and this B&B exceeded all my expectations. The main house was built in 1855 and has been furnished with authentic antiques.

Gothic Eves is located in the small town of Trumansburg N.Y., has an almost New England charm. Most travelers will drive right through it on the way to nearby Ithaca (home of Cornell University). It is in the heart of New York's wine region and centrally located to several state parks and Finger Lakes National Forest. If you hike, cycle, swim, or otherwise love the outdoors this is the perfect place to rest. Take a winery tour if you wish or go to the Museum of the Earth (passes available from the hosts) at the end of the day you will be happy to kick back and relax. The gourmet style breakfast would be at home in any high end hotel, and all the rooms have a different theme. I found an authentic 1944 edition of National Geographic in my room, the perfect touch. Despite the extreme cold outside, the heating was excellent and bedding was beyond comfortable.

There is a word of advice to anyone expecting modern technology in this B&B. There are no TVs, telephones, or internet access in the rooms. Quite frankly it was refreshing, and we loved it. The feeling of getting away from it all is exactly what we were looking for. The hosts, Rose Hilbert and Roman Pausch are always available and are beyond accommodating; not to mention excellent cooks.

The only thing I regret was leaving after a peaceful three day weekend. I look forward to returning in the near future and possibly trying one of the other rooms in what will no doubt be a great experience. Call them or email them, you won't be disappointed.
