I'm not sure if I liked it or not. Never got to go there. Played a phone, and email tag with the owner. Never got a straight answer to any of my questions. Pictures don't really match the location and price and standard ratio seems to be a little bit off. At the end of it I had to reschedule...

Two huge thumbs-up. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to book again. We had two kids with us, and we all slept very comfortably in a partitioned room. Wonderfully peaceful and quiet. -Peter A

I so enjoyed the spectacular views of Cayuga Lake from the many windows, grounds, & gardens of this quaint 3-story b&b. Elegant furnishings & fabrics reminiscent of France & Italy added to its charm. Delightful breakfasts, great wifi, hospitable staff - all these pluses made my stay a truly relaxing retreat and helped to put the Cayuga Lakefront Inn at...

This was the first stop of our trip, and after 5 hours of driving we arrived at the B and B, and there was not a soul there (even though we arrived in the narrow arrival window)! We waited around for 40 minutes and called the phone number repeatedly, but no one answered. Starving and travel-weary, we left and got...

My wife and I had a very nice weekend at this B & B. However, I pictured it, (based on the name), as being on Lake Cayuga. It is not. It has a very nice view of the Lake, but if you picture walking along the shores of the Lake, forget it. Diane is very nice and runs a good,...

This bed and breakfast was a bit like visiting an eccentric aunt. While overall we had a good experience, it would not be to everyone's taste. But if you bring an open mind and some allergy medication (our room was a bit dusty, and full of fabrics, ribbons, books, paper, many dust catchers) you are in for a different experience....

What an unexpected surprise! My husband and I read the reviews and even though some weren't the nicest, we decided why the heck not?! And I couldn't have been happier. We stayed at the Lake Front Inn 2, the grey building, and had the best time. Privacy and comfort, comfortable temperatures and great wifi. Dianne was the best host, and...

My husband and I stayed at one of the Cayuga Lakefront B&Bs (http://www.lakefrontinn.com/) in mid-August and had a really lovely time. Diane was incredibly welcoming and friendly to us, and we stayed in a gorgeous room with lots of character and one of Diane's beautiful handmade hammocks! She recommended an excellent restaurant in Aurora, Pumpkin Hill Bistro, and our evening...

The owner has two B&Bs and we stayed in the LAKEFRONT INN 2 one for two nights in mid of July 2013. We paid $265/night cash (suggested by the owner) to stay in the so called premiere room. The B&B was way way over priced according to its conditions and the breakfast service. The room was not very clean and...

Debbie remembered our chat on the phone many months ago which is quite a pleasant surprise. The room was decorated beautifully and very comfortable. Would highly recommend for the convenient location and the view as well. Food was wonderful. I only had breakfast. Wish I could have their 7 course dinner.
