We had a nice stay at the Inn at Taughannock. The room was clean and modern with a rustic decor. And a nice view of Taughannock Park and Cayuga Lake. The host was super friendly and helpful. We were with walking distance of Taughannock Falls, and a path from the inn leads to the trail to the falls. The continental...

We have been going to Taughannock for 18 years and are sad to say we will not be going again. We are dismayed by the change in ownership. When calling the Inn to change a reservation, we were greeted with an answering machine and had to leave a message and wait for a return call. When we checked in, it...

My wife and I spent the first weekend in December here with an idea for a getaway while in Syracuse on business. We happened to be the only paying guests the weekend we went, but we were not the only people at the property, which was nice. Service: Brian, the GM, took absolute care of our every need the entire...

Very disappointed with Thanksgiving dinner at the Inn. There were 10 of us and the cost was significant. The turkey was overdone, the vegetables cold and for dessert we were served ice cream that was listed as honey vanilla and turned out to be espresso bean. The ice cream had apparently softened and was refrozen as it was full of...

What a fabulous place to stay, and eat. The hospitality is second to none! The Inn is around 175 years old. The rooms are beautifully furnished with period furniture. The staff treat you like family, and the food in the restaurant is superb. Taughannock Falls are a short hike from the Inn, and most rooms have a view of lake...

Hubby & chose this Inn because of the location, right on Cayuga Lake, at the base of Taughannock Falls...little did we realize how very excellent the location was. A very convenient walking path to the Falls, from the Inn, meant we did not have to move our car We stayed in Lakeview 1, a charming, 1 bedroom, more like a...

Having heard about this place for many years, I surprised my wife with an overnight get-away here. I reserved one of the lake view rooms in the original inn, and we were pleasantly surprised. Not unlike other local inns we have stayed in, our room was comfortable, clean and well appointed and the staff very accommodating! They also explained that...

Our overall experience of Taughannock Farms Inn was over priced. The quality of the rooms and the level of service does not match the price. More over we had a group brunch on the second morning and had to wait for the hot plates for over an hour. We were a group of 30 people but on arrival they didn't...

My husband and I had a two day getaway at the Taughannock Farm Inn. We stayed in South Lake suite. The view of the lake and fall foliage was the best. One afternoon, we poured a glass of wine and sat on the bed to enjoy the view. It was so relaxing. The service was excellent and we met, Brian,...

We live in Massachusetts and come to the Finger Lakes area only once per year. But we make sure that we make reservations at the Inn for our very special dinner each year as soon as we get there.
