This was my first bed and breakfast and the experience was terrific! Maura made gourmet delicious breakfast each morning. She was happy to talk about the area and suggest places to go and things to do. The room was comfortable. Each room had a private balcony. We definitely recommend this bed and breakfast!!

Maura makes truly an amazing breakfast. Not only do you not what to skip it, but we found ourselves just dying to know what she was going to make the next day. It is a perfect location on the lake, so peaceful and quiet. Would highly recommend this for long weekend of relaxation.

August was a rough month for us, and we almost considered canceling our plans for our 2-day stay at Silver Strand. Are we ever glad we did not! The Silver Strand was the PERFECT spot to relax and unwind. Upon arrival, we were immediately greeted by Maura who is friendly, gracious and extremely helpful. I could sense right away we...

We visited for a long weekend and let me tell you this is the place to be. Right on the lake! Maura and Skip were great hosts! More than friendly, they made it feel like home. Breakfast was to die for and made fresh. Once Maura knows you're up she cooks up your breakfast, so no sitting on hot plates....

The location can't be beat if you want to get away from it all!! Traditional B and B with a view of the lake from all rooms. The breeze from the lake kept the B n B cooler than surrounding areas and taking the Kayak out on Cayuga Lake was wonderful. Maura's breakfasts are delicious and they are held outside...

We just finished up a 3 night stay at this perfectly located B&B. If you're a water lover, this is the place for you! The house is classically beautiful and each room has its own private outside space/balcony with wonderful views of sprawling Lake Cayuga. I believe there are only 4 rooms to choose from in the home, making for...

We stayed at Silver strand for 3 nights and we had a fabulous relaxing time. The owners Maura & Skip made us feel right at home. The place has a fabulous location overlooking Kayuga lake & our room on the top floor had a gorgeous balcony overlooking their own private beach & dock. Maura went out of her way to...

This is everything you could want in a B&B. The views are spectacular. The facilities are excellent - lovely bedrooms with private balcony / porches + beautiful beach and deck + nice kayaks + nice bicycles. Incredibly friendly and helpful hosts. Wonderful breakfasts - the eggs Florentine with home made Hollandaise and a wonderful mix of home grown Swiss chard...

My husband and I are not really B&B fans. Before coming here to Silver Strand we had a hard time remembering when we had last stayed at one. Staying here reminded us of all of the charms we have been missing! We had wanted to visit the Finger Lakes for many years and found this place online. It was exactly...
