Can't say enough good things about Ken, Diane and their B&B, but I'll try. We visit the Finger Lakes nearly every year as part of a wine getaway, but this was our first trip to Seneca Falls. We found The Barrister's as part of a Groupon and were not disappointed. Ken and Diane are welcoming and accomodating hosts. Ken's 3...

My fiance and I stayed in Erin's Retreat and friends stayed in Grandmother's room. We arrived quite late on Friday and were greeted by Ken and shown to our room. Erin's has a nice parlor before you get to the bedroom. There is a couch, two armchairs, a writing desk and a comfortable day bed. Note to others, Erin's Retreat...

Spent two nights here as our home base to explore the Finger Lakes and surrounding wineries. Tom and Diane are delightful; both know the history of the area, and have a font of information about surrounding area activities. They are active in the community, and share their love for Seneca Falls. The inn is old but lovingly restored. Photos in...

Victorian B & B in a quaint town, located in the beautiful Finger Lakes region. Victorian houses are not our first choice in B & Bs, but this one was in great shape, very clean, tastefully decorated, and with quite comfortable accommodations. The hosts were friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and very helpful. Grounds were lovely, as was the neighborhood....

The barrister is a Very clean and convenient stopping off point in Seneca Falls New York. The road is rather busy outfront with lots of trucks so be sure and ask for room at the rear that is quiet. The host was an expert cook. The hostess was overly chatty for our tastes. The second day egg frittata was dry...

Diane and I are so sorry that Barrister's did not meet your expectations. The Inn is located near the downtown area and traffic is busy at times. We do our best to maintain a very quiet environment in the house. We replaced all 68 windows with double insulated glass to help that effort. We try to provide you with useful...

Barrister's is within walking distance of the national park in Seneca Falls and the all around best place to stay in the town. Step into the past as you step through the door. The parlor, dining room and bedrooms mirror the history of the town. The breakfast, with one seating, is not only excellent, but allows all guests to exchange...

Ken and Diane are Expert innkeepers! From the Victorian decor to the wealth of information (including menus from restaurants in the area) that they graciously provide! A wide variety of tea and coffee are always available in the dining room sometimes with delicious baked goodies.... Many brochures of the surrounding area are found in the living room, but Ken and...

Seneca Falls was the first leg of our trip to the Finger Lakes and Barrister's set the bar high for any future B&Bs. Ken and Diane made us feel like we were old friends. They knew all the great places to visit and things to see. They fed us unbelievably delicious breakfasts (yes, Ken really does serve a three-course breakfast)...

We stopped here for just one night during a trip from Michigan to Massachusetts. Wanted to see the Women's Historical National Park. Barrister's is right close to the main street, a nice walk. The house has been lovingly restored and is beautiful. I'm not usually a big fan of the flowers-and-lace decor you find at B&Bs, but our room was...

Thanks for your kind words about your experience. We are so pleased that it was positive at the Inn. I do agree with your assessment of downtown. The town businesses have found a brand in the Women's movement and have been able to market that to their advantage. I trust that the lure of Seneca Falls will bring you back...

My wife and I stayed at our first B&B in 2013 and fell in love with them. The problem though is that the one we stayed at was phenomenal and have not been to one that could compare, that is until we stayed at Barrister's. My wife set this trip up for my birthday and has explained to me how...
