My husband and I celebrate our wedding anniversary each year at a different B&B in the finger lakes and we have stayed at quite a few. The Black Sheep Inn is by far the best and we will be returning to stay at this absolutely fantastic B&B!! Dan & Deb La Bar Rochester, NY

My husband and I recently stayed at the Black Sheep Inn for our honeymoon and loved it! Debbie and Marc made us feel right at home.

The Black Sheep Inn is delightful. The architecture is enchanting and the spaces are incredibly clean. We enjoyed the "home" feel and comfort of the room. The food is a unique artisan blend, some of it was most tasty than others. We wish the grounds were a little more manicured. There is a great old piano in the main parlor...

We decided, last minute, to take our small fishing boar up to Keuka Lake one weekend. We were very fortunate that Deb & Marc happened to have an open room. The location was perfect. Very close to town and to the boat launch. Our room was really nice and VERY conveniently arranged. The guest's comfort was a priority when they...

While planning a trip to the Finger Lakes, I came across excellent reviews of The Black Sleep Inn . The Inns web site was informative, attractive and held my attention so I called.

We arrived at The Black Sheep Inn, harassed and frustrated having encountered a problem with our vehicle on our drive from Canada.
