Should have made this review around 6 months ago... This is a great B&B in a historic building which was turned into a cozy accommodation to those exploring the Finger Lakes area. The owner was superb in her dedication to try making us feel at home during our stay. Great breakfast, excellent conversation, no complaints at all. To this day...

We felt there could have been a TV in the house, better reading wattage on the bedroom lights, an earlier serving time and a more robust breakfast. On the other hand, the home was cozy, clean, historic, well decorated and pleasant. The hostess was helpful in suggesting ideas; however, when we were talking with the other guests, there were a...

Thank you for taking the time to let other travelers know about your stay. It has been a 20-year tradition of the "no TV zone" in the B&B, as started by the original owner. They are a distraction to our already too-connected lives, and we want to afford our other guests a restful, peaceful stay. The arrangement of the bed...

The best part of being an innkeeper, for over 10 years now, is the people we get to meet, host, befriend, and love! We were so honored to have you and Eli (and company) choose our B&B for your vow renewal weekend. Special occasions are always a treat, and it was wonderful being a part of your day. There is...

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at this Bed and Breakfast. The breakfast was wonderful and the accommodations were great. The hostess and her cat were also wonderful. The peace and quiet of the bed and breakfast and the location gave us a wonderful chance to relax and unwind.

Thank you for sharing your experience with others. It is our goal to offer a relaxing and comfortable getaway, and we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Toby the cat is the added bonus (and our official greeter)! Our guests enjoy his interaction with them; but if someone should be allergic, we do our best to keep him...

Our book group stayed here this past week. There were 6 of us so we occupied the entire house. We were treated like royalty! This home is in an ideal location, a 15 minute walk to downtown. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, beautifully furnished and immaculately clean. The dining room is charming and the living room is comfortable with...

It is always fun to have groups who travel together and reserve the whole B&B. You were certainly a fun-loving bunch! It was my pleasure hosting your stay, and it is the special touches we offer that bring travelers back - many even become friends! You know the old saying . . . "Enter a stranger, leave a friend".

My friend and I stayed for one night and wished we could have booked another. It's often difficult to find a B&B with 2 queen beds and the Swaby Suite totally ticked all the boxes for us. It had 2 adjoining rooms with queen beds with beautiful quilts and a private bath across the hall. VanCleef Homestead is beautifully maintained...

We loved this place! The house is charming and historic. Our room was fabulous - very large and with a comfortable king sized bed. Carol, our host, thought of so many details. She refreshed a pitcher of iced water for us in the room each day. The bathroom was equipped with all the basics plus many more including bubble bath...

It has been a few years since we have been there, but our trip is planned for September 27th. First the rooms are wonderful. The breakfasts are to die for, and the inn keeper's are fantastic. We were made to feel at home. The four of us can't wait to go again!!

The VanCleef Homestead is a lovely old home that is well maintained. The owner, Carol, is very attentive to guest’s needs. Breakfasts are more than ample and well balanced.

We stayed in the main house and all four rooms were beautiful. Our stay was on an exceptionally hot day making the presence of a swimming pool especially enjoyable.However, the tone of the visit was epitomized by fact that the owner found us after we had been biking for an hour and delivered some clothing that we had forgotten.
