My girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights during a recent trip to the Seneca Lake wine trail. This is our first time staying in the area so I can't provide much in the way of comparisons to other properties. I can say, however, that we were very pleased with this place. We stayed in Southlake room at The...

I simply cannot say enough about our time at Seneca Springs. We found it at random when we were in desperate need of an escape from long work hours and city stress. From the moment we pulled in on our first visit, I was instantly relaxed. The sunset views were incredible, our room was beautiful and very cozy yet very...

This experience was a real treat for us. The food was excellent, and the Beer had distinctive aromas and flavors. You could taste the time and attention that was poured into brewing these Beers. Our room was spacious yet charming and inviting, so much better than a traditional Hotel. It is obvious the owners are passionate about the entire experience...

Can't wait to return in the summer months. Even the November gloom didn't deter for the outstanding views and customer service at this quaint, modern and CLEAN B&B & Brewery. The staff was friendly and engaging and the location is the perfect destination for local wine or brewery trail visits

The Edgewood Suite is delightful! My hubby & I had an overnight getaway as a gift from our son & new daughter-in-law. We enjoyed having a full kitchen where we cooked a romantic dinner for two. Breakfast in the morning, delivered by Darlene (the owner) was truly delicious. We enjoyed a leisurely breakfast, jacuzzi tub, a movie, reading, talking....things we...

My wife and I spent an extended weekend at Seneca Springs and could not have been happier. We booked the Fireside room in the Inn. It was very quiet and had a beautiful view of the lake out the front window. We were a little concerned about the noise from the nearby breakfast area, but it was not an issue...
