We stayed here in September of 2013, and had a WONDERFUL experience. Sally and her husband are wonderful hosts! Especially outstanding were her breakfasts - huge and absolutely delicious! Our room was clean and comfortable, and although we did not have an en suite bath, it was just steps away, and we did not share with other guests - so...

Everything about this B & B was charming. Our room was spotless with lots of pillows. The whole inn is very welcoming. It was very comfortable to sit downstairs and chat with the other guests. Breakfasts were delicious and bountiful. Sally is very friendly and treated us like family. We especially loved hearing her share stories. The location is excellent....

This is the best B&B I have ever stayed in. About 10 years ago I found them on bbonline.com and I have been visiting ever since. Sally caters to my gluten-free needs and makes lip-smacking breakfasts.

This was our second stay at the Marmalade Cat during Ice Bar weekend. We walked the few blocks to the event venue. B&B is nice and quiet, has a friendly host, comfortable rooms, reasonable rates and delicious breakfast. We'll be back :)

The charm of the B&B is the in keeper and we felt right at home here. Sally made sure everything was to our liking. There was just something appealing to the eclectic decor in this beautiful home. Truly warm and inviting

Arrived on a wet and blustery November late afternoon and were made instantly welcome by Sally in her quirky, English-themed house. Location is great, near the centre of town and effectively walking distance from pretty much everything, the shops, the restaurants, the clubs and even the Glen State Park. Our room was a little short of electrical sockets, the bathroom...

Hello fellow Brits and thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Guests have called our home lovely, charming and even beautiful on most occasions, but quirky is a new one on me. ??? I hope the rest of you visit to the USA was a pleasant one. Just for future reference as I mentioned in a...

First the location of this B&B can't be beat. It seems like any major stop in the area is at most a half hour away (Ithaca, Geneva, Seneca Falls, Hammondsport). Its right on the main drag in Watkins Glen which makes it easy to find but there is a bit of road noise. Not enough to complain about but enough...

Thank you so much for your kind review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful area. Naturally being in town there will be some traffic, but our great location gives perfect access to the lake, shops, restaurants, parks and of course the Watkins Glen Gorge. It was a pleasure...

Lucked into a room last minute- easy walk to restaurants & nicely outfitted. Wonderful hostess who gave us our space but was there as needed. Breakfast was generous, which was good because we were hiking the gorge that day. I agree with others that outlets were low, but I'm short enough I could stand to dry my hair. I loved...

I second all the positive comments here. However, I am compelled to add two improvements needed for the Rose room (and probably for the other rooms). First, the sink (outside the small bathroom) was so tiny that only a small soap/cup could be placed on it. Where do you put your shaving, toothpaste and other equipment? Either install a sink...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We enjoyed having you stay with us in the Rose Room and appreciate your comments. Just for future reference to anyone reading our reviews, there is now a 3-tier stand next to the sink for toiletries, etc. (we had been searching for one that would fit that area). Also, it...
