This place was a secret little gem. Diane arranged for a cake for a birthday surprise. It was so cute, she even added a homemade card. It was moist and delish. The little touches were so special. They really make you feel at home. Little things you don't normally see like air freshner in the bathroom. It was like staying...

We stayed at the Lakeside Inn after a lacrosse game at Cornell University. Diane is a vivacious and gracious hostess and Tony her second hand provides top notch customer service. The inn itself is lovely. We were lucky enough to be in the top floor room; it is spacious with a king sized bed and a large bathroom with a...

Lakefront Inn is a great place for a weekend getaway. Tony, the caretaker/concierges/chef of the Inn, puts his all into his work, to make you have the best possible visit to the area. We loved the character, cleanliness, and amenities of the inn. We were on the hunt for a place with a great tub and reasonable priced, and we...

We made a last minute plan and found this on Trip Advisor. We got the last room and had no idea what to expect. We had a beautiful , spacious first floor room with 2 sets of French doors, a private courtyard overlooking the lake, and a beautiful Italian tiled bathroom. Every supply you may have forgotten was provided ,...

Have stayed at both of their Inns. Always enjoy staying there!! Service is great and the rooms are beautiful. Breakfast is delicious. Bed and Breakfasts are very different from hotels. Its more like being a guest in someone's home so you have to be the kind of person who is comfortable in that setting. The great thing about the Inns...

When we called to book a room it sounded great but a little out of our price range. The host seemed eager to bring the price down for us so we agreed, which at first I was very excited about. However when we finally got there (we were given multiple addresses and it was very hard to find) we saw...

The view was nice but that is where it ended. It seemed her entire interest was filling the place/places up to 35 people versus keeping the place kept up.

After looking at this businesses website and the beautiful lake front view it had to offer i was quite excited for my stay. After getting there however i quickly realized I was mislead.
