Spent a few days at the Magnolia Inn overlooking a gorgeous vineyard and Seneca Lake, beautiful place to unwind and relax in New York's wine country! The owners are so nice, they made us feel right at home! Breakfasts were outstanding!

We spent 2 wonderful evenings at Magnolia Place. The Lilac suite was beautiful and the view from the porch was gorgeous. The breakfasts were delicious!! We also had "Table for Two" come to the B&B and cook dinner for us.......what a culinary experience!!

It is hard to know where to start, I don't usually write gushing reviews but everything about Magnolia Place was perfect. The location is in one of the prettiest parts of the Finger Lake region with many wineries and small restaurants close by. The decor is elegant and comfortable. We stayed in the Magnolia Suite with a fabulous jacuzzi tub...

We stayed here for 8 days on a recent trip to the Finger Lakes area. It is located a few miles outside of Watkins Glen on route 414 and perfect for visiting the winery's and other attractions. The first thing one notices when one drives up is how well cared for the outside is. It is perfect. Then as you...

The owner's we're very gracious and accommodating (dog included). The place was beautifully kept and eco-friendly. The living room and the patio were very welcoming. Full of books, games and movies to enjoy. My favorite part was the wonderful breakfasts. Everything was plentiful, fresh and just delicious! We were able to have breakfast on their beautiful wrap around porch overlooking...

Magnolia Place is a perfect example of why you should consider a B&B instead of a hotel, when you are on vacation and want to relax! The owners Terry & Ted took great care to ensure the "little touches" that truly allow for comfort - and even pampering. The house is immaculate and well-appointed, with many different places to relax...

This was my first B&B stay and it was wonderful. The setup of the house is fantastic. Lots of open space in the common areas with TV and information about the area as well as couches to read etc. Central fridge where you can keep wine/cheese and they provide bottled water. The owners were very warm and provided an amazing...

We have just returned from two wonderful nights at Magnolia Place. The location is perfect for wine tasting along Seneca Lake, hiking at Watkins Glen, and dining at some of the many outstanding restaurants in the area who feature local products. Terry and Ted have made Magnolia Place comfortable for their guests by not cluttering their guest rooms (there are...

Let me preface this by saying this was my first B&B experience, and it definitely fulfilled my expectations. The B&B was fantastic! The entire house is sparkling and clean. There is a big living room with a TV on the first floor and a huge wraparound porch. The kitchen is cozy and inviting, as is the big sunroom where we...

The B&B is very beautiful, design in good taste, very clean and comftrable. The owners are very helpful and nice. The breakfast was very big. The only thing was that the internet connection was bad at our room. Overall I recommend staying there.
