“Lovely Home & Helpful Hosts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

Our rooms and baths were generous and comfortable; excellent beds! Diane and Ken are delightful knowledgeable hosts. Breakfast was huge, delicious and more than we could eat. We look forward to a return visit for more bicycling and exploration.

My husband and I and another couple spent 5 nights with Ken and Diane. This was our first trip to the Finger Lakes area and Ken and Diane could not have been more accommodating. The rooms were charming and welcoming. The Breakfasts are out of this world. Every morning we were served a 3 Course breakfast utilizing local fare which kept us satisfied until late afternoon. Ken and Diane are both very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas. The house is gorgeous and very well maintained with a welcoming porch to kick back and relax in the evening. We will be staying there again.

Barrister's made our first visit to the Finger Lakes a wonderful & unforgettable experience. Ken & Diane (the Inn's owners) greet you at the door like you are family. Ken helped take our luggage to Grandmother's Room. A cozy, nicely decorated room with a huge bathroom that used to be Grandmother's kitchen! Both were eager to give you advice about the area. They gave us several "Barrister Buck Coupons" for some of the Wineries which entitled you to free tastings! Their breakfasts are worthy of being served at a five star hotel. Amazing! An interesting fact is that they purchase and use as many local ingredients that they can find. Ken & Diane are perfect for hosting a B&B. We will be coming back in the the future - many times!

This bed and breakfast is in a fabulous location close to many vineyards and state parks which were gorgeous. When we sat down for breakfast Saturday morning, we had no idea what to expect. We were served three delicious courses which kept us satisfied until late afternoon. The presentation was fabulous and the taste, just wonderful! Ken and Diane spent a lot of time answering our many questions and helping us plan our day's events. They were very hospitable, down to earth and just lovely people, it was as if we knew them for years!

Our Bed & Breakfast experiences so far have really been good but Ken & Diane have made it exceptional. We told them what we wanted to do and they gave us some really great suggestions making our trip that much more enjoyable. The Barrister's bucks was a great idea and saved us a lot. We were never lost for conversation and Ken & Diane made us feel very comfortable and at home. We stayed in "Grandmothers Room" (near the room Zuzu from "It's A Wonderful Life" stayed) which was very roomy and comfortable. And of course we can't forget the breakfasts. They were out of this world. When we return to the Finger Lakes Barrister's Bed & Breakfast will be our choice. Ken & Diane, thanks for your hospitality.

Barrister's Bed and Breakfast defines what a b&b should entail. It isn't just another big, beautiful, antique house, but rather a place you can call home for the weekend. Ken and Diane go above and beyond to accommodate your needs and surpass your expectations. If you're visiting the area, Barrister's is the ONLY place to stay!!

We were with friends that rented Barrister's for a weekend celebration. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Three course breakfast was fabulous and well represented by local food sources...we never walked away hungry. Ken and Diane were accomodating by identifying options for our activities. The Barrister's bucks saved us money at various locations. We are already planning our return. Thanks for a great experience.
