We stayed here in June 2015, when we were in town for a wedding. The place is owned and run by a wonderful couple, Wally and Nancy. They're very willing to help with any suggestions that the guests might need on the local area. Their reviews of the nearby wineries were very accurate and helpful. Wally is an experienced professional...

This was our fifth time staying here and second under Nancy and Wally's ownership. It is a great place to stay, clean and quiet. And the breakfasts that Wally makes are amazing. Never need lunch with them. Interlaken is also very conveniently located both to Cayuga Lake and Seneca. Highly recommend it.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Glass Magnolia this past weekend in the "Lady Spencer" room. It was a warm weekend, but the air conditioning kept the room comfortably cool. I will definitely make a return trip!! The food was wonderful! I was there for my brother's wedding, which Nancy and Wally did an amazing job catering! Wally...

Returned to this B & B after having stayed there last year. Wally and Nancy continue to be very accommodating hosts. The rooms are very comfortable and quiet. Wally is a top notch chef, as the breakfasts are always bountiful and delicious. We had some pleasant conversations with the hosts, and we were provided with some very good tips on...

Upon arrival, we were pleasantly greeted and shown the common areas of the main house. The hosts were very nice and accommodating. Premises was a quaint Greek Revival with the owners trying to stay true to the motif. After a brief meeting and discussion with owner, we were told that our accommodations were in another house. We walked in through...

Went back up to The Glass Magnolia Bed & Breakfast last month. Such a nice time. The 'new' owners have been continuously sprucing things up since they purchased it just over a year ago. The rooms were nice & clean. Mine had a little fire place which was perfect to take the chill out of a cold winter day. At...

This place was fantastic to stay at. The owners are quite friendly and welcoming. The rates are also top notch. My favorite part was the breakfast in the morning because the cook was a chef for 30+ years at world class restaurants before he retired. The rooms are all unique and very cozy. We look forward to returning and recommending...

This place was great. Let me begin by saying that we headed up to the area with no plan or reservations and heard about the Glass Magnolia in our winery stops. We looked at a couple pics, called to check to see if it was available because it was March and too many places are closed up tight. Our stop...

I agree with Jessica L! Phoebe the dog is a wonderful welcome and starts off your visit just right! Nancy and Wally are so kind and warm and the main house is a wonderful 1800's gem. We stayed in the dog friendly room that has a door out to the back, but alas, our dog was home this time. Next...
