We were traveling through the area late in the evening and happened upon the Inn and was fortunate to have secured their last room. The room was in the separate building called the Carriage House located next to the main property. The Inn has lovely grounds and is located on the Lake. The room was tastefully decorated and had what... More

It's our annual trip to the Brewster and so enjoy our meal at the restaurant. We love the Terrace Bar Room - the bar area is amazing and there is a great number of people to mingle with. The dining area there has a great atmosphere - so it's our favorite. I love that the menu now offers smaller orders... More

We have eaten at the Brewster many times, but this is the first time we have stayed at the inn. We had a room in the main house, overlooking the lake. We had a gas fireplace and a hot tub. The staff was excellent, service was first rate. The room, however is showing its age a bit. The tub needed... More

This place sits on the southeast end of Cazenovia lake. It was after dark when we arrived, so we missed the entrance at first. Note: It is just before the T in the road where 20 east meets Rippleton Road (13) and Foreman Street (20). It has plenty of white string lights to guide you, but if you've never been... More

We have been coming here to eat and for special events for years. The food is always great. Wine selection very good. And the setting on beautiful Cazenovia Lake can't be beat. Every season is special there and in the warm weather you can eat out on the manicured lawn lakeside. It is always a favorite!

Dined here Saturday June 7th with my wife.

Seeking out historic properties to overnight and dine . Great old victorian . Large bathrooms and bedrooms . Expected more antique furnishings but the rooms were adequately decorated. Some rooms have jacuzzi tubs within the bedroom. I am not a fan of this . I like the tubs in the bathroom. The dining was above expectations . A plus .... More
