Barrister's Bed & Breakfast

Reviewed April 22, 2014

I want to add my simple concurrence to the legion of encomium blanketing this website for this remarkable B&B. Yes, Ken and Diane have a real gem of a stately residence to offer guests. Diane is indefatigable in the advice she offers about local sites and Ken's modest descriptions of his incomparable breakfast creations hardly do the morsels justice. You will love the stop if you find yourself in the upper Lake Cuyuga area.

This was a great B&B experience. The hosts, Ken and Diane, were delightful, amusing and helpful. The breakfasts were truly memorable, using very fresh local ingredients. Mmmmmm...!

We received excellent advice on the local wineries, places to go hiking and birding, and had an overall great weekend. We highly recommend the Barristers B&B!

My husband and I decided to try this as a stop along while doing the wineries between Seneca and Cayuga Lakes. It is a great historic home with beautiful stained glass. Ken was very cordial and prepared a very good breakfast He also shared very good and interesting local knowledge. We appreciated the Barrister bucks and the cheese staying was fun. Thanks Ken.

My wife and I treated ourselves for our 10th anniversary in the Finger Lakes region and we could not have chosen a better bed & breakfast. Ken and Diane were gracious, warm and friendly. The homestead was gorgeous - stained glass windows, elegant rooms and fantastic antique furniture and decorations (wink, wink!). And the breakfast was delicious too. We could not have been treated any better - thanks Ken and Diane!

Ken and Diane made us feel like part of the family. Great advice and entertaining conversation during breakfast and the food was delicious. We stayed in Erin's Retreat which adjoins the Cottage Room, and they can share a living common space if you go with friends (we did not, but want to next time.) Barrister Bucks (coupons) will get you complimentary tastings in many places (normally a $2-$3 charge per person) and sometimes get you discounts on your purchases, so be sure to let Diane know where you're heading for the day. Thank you both for the wonderful weekend away

Room Tip: All of the rooms are a little different. Erin's retreat is the only one with a living area, day...

This was my and my boyfriend's first B&B experience. We were a bit apprehensive but I am so glad we stayed at Barrister's! Diane and Ken are amazing hosts. When I walked in Diane gave me a rose for Valentine's Day(SO SWEET!). We really enjoyed our cozy cottage room and all the decor and especially the jacuzzi tub in our private bathroom. Bed was very comfy and heat was plentiful and we could control it as well. There is a fridge right outside our bedroom which was great to keep our wine and goodies in. They also had bottles of water to take with us as well. We absolutely loved the breakfast! Ken and Diane present a 3 course breakfast each day at 9:00am. So deeeelish! (baked goods, baked fruit course, and french toast and frittata and this sweet potatoe cakeso yummy!) And plentiful, we didnt even each lunch bc we were full. The cuisine was second only to the great stories and information that Diane and Ken shared at breakfast. We really enjoyed chatting and listening. It felt really homey and intimate. The location is also prime and they provided some Barrister Bucks to a couple of vineyards so we could do some free wine tastings and get other discounts-AWESOME! They also have easy parking in their driveway and wi-fi throughout the house. We will def return and can highly recommend Barrister! Thank you for a lovely time Ken and Diane!

This was a great place to be if you are planning to do the Seneca wine trails. The folks were very hospitable and made us feel at home. They gave us great advise on the different wineries. Breakfast was phenomenal! Overall, great experience with great people.
