My husband and I were looking for a relaxing getaway. A friend found a Groupon and we decided to give Los Gatos a try. We originally booked for 2 nights but ended up staying 4. Everything was wonderful! Beautiful location, beautiful and very clean rooms, beautiful deck, porch and gardens to relax in! Susan and Burney have a gift for hospitality. Their passion shows in everything they do. Breakfasts were amazing and they even shared their recipes! The coffee was the best! We couldn't possibly visit all the wineries that were part of the Groupon package. The drive around Keuka and Seneca Lake between wineries was wonderful! We especially enjoyed our hike at Watkins Glen State Park and our visit to the Corning Museum of Glass. Susan recommended the Spotted Duck Creamery and we enjoyed delicious custard in a unique setting. This will be a vacation getaway to remember!
Susan and Bernie made us fee very welcomed. We stayed in one of the cabins and loved the way it gave us privacy . It was very nicely decorated and we enjoyed sitting on the porch and admiring their lovely property. Their breakfast was beyond delicious and we brought some of their jams home. Would highly recommed this inn when making a trip to the beautiful finger lakes.
We only stayed for one night and wish we could have stayed a week! Yang and Gary are the perfect hosts! Our suite was perfect -- very large, two rooms with an outdoor balcony with two rocking chairs -- perfect for morning coffee. Breakfast was great too. The house is beautifully decorated with every necessary amenity. Can't wait to visit again!
This is a fantastic Bed and Breakfast. Burney and Susan are very hospitable hosts and the property is gorgeous. Breakfast was always unique and a treat! Would recommend without hesitation to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.
We stayed with Dennis, Janine, and their dog Scout for 3 days: Wed 09 Aug to Fri 11 Aug. We stayed with another couple. Dennis and Janine are perfect hosts. The lodge is in a quite, peaceful setting on the east side of Keuka Lake. The bedroom we stayed was on the second floor. The room was cozy with a spacious bathroom. The room and bath were clean. The kitchen, dining area, and sitting area on the first floor has an open floor. Large windows face west. Breakfast was hearty and plentiful. Dennis and Janine enjoy sharing breakfast. We enjoyed the conversation. We highly recommend staying.
I am not someone who relaxes often or easily but I was able to do so here. From every chair on this lovely landscaped hillside property one can experience the sights and sounds of the clear and serene Lake Keuka. In the morning, you are greeted by Samantha, the super-friendly beagle, and served a delicious homemade breakfast, prepared with your dietary restrictions in mind, by Ginny, Samantha's mom. It is a nice opportunity to meet the other guests and talk about your plans for the day. Whether you choose to take out their canoe or kayak, go for a hike, tour some wineries or explore one of the area's larger towns, Ginny and Jamie (Samantha's dad) will help navigate your course. We had perfect weather during our visit, but should you be less fortunate, you can view the lake from the chaise in the living room through the floor to ceiling windows. Or, depending on your room, sit on your balcony with a bottle of wine that you purchased from one of the local wineries you visited that day, and enjoy the view. Like I said, there is no bad chair in the house. To be sure, I did not sit during the entire visit. Watkins Glen, home to beautiful waterfalls, is a 30 minute drive. The gorge is nature at its finest. The Keuka Outlet is also a great walking/biking path and just minutes from the B&B. Wineries, produce farms and ice cream stands line the Finger Lakes and range from very simple structures to large fancy properties. Many of the wineries host special events throughout the season like live music and happy hours. My new favorite is the Spotted Duck Creamery located just a few miles from the B&B. The Spotted Duck makes homemade all-natural custard and, like the wineries that offer flights to sample the various wines, here, they offer ice cream flights! Ginny and Jamie are not only excellent innkeepers, they are good people. My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Steamboat Castle B&B and hope to return soon.
Los Gatos is our "home away from home" in the Finger Lakes. Susan and Burney are very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area. They always have great suggestions for places to visit and dining options. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and breakfast is always delicious. We have already booked our next stay!
Innkeepers Burney and Susan have set high standards for their B & B and created a beautiful, welcoming, relaxing place to stay in the Finger Lakes. The breakfasts were outstanding, made from fresh ingredients home-grown or locally sourced. We booked the Blue Room for two nights. It's more spacious than the online photos suggest and conveniently is mere steps from the common area (every other guest we encountered also raved about their accommodations). John & Peggy
My husband and I have stayed at the Willows B and B before, in fact, in the same room. We love the closeness to the lake, the breakfasts and coffee are wonderful, and the ambiance is perfect. Our bedroom was a bit crowded with 2 pieces of luggage, however we accommodated, as we knew this about the room ahead of time. Overall, our stay was an extremely positive experience.
We recently traveled to the Finger Lakes to enjoy a quick getaway. Los Gatos was the perfect place to stay. We started each day with AMAZING breakfasts provided by Burney and Susan and ended each evening with wine on the beautiful back porch. We loved walking around the grounds, picking fresh strawberries from the strawberry patch and enjoying lovely views from the gazebo. Burney and Susan were always available to answer any questions but also provided the perfect amount of privacy. We loved how none of the bedrooms shared a wall, so we had the quiet to enjoy a perfect night's sleep each night. We would highly recommend this Bed & Breakfast to anyone looking for a peaceful, relaxing and beautiful getaway with great food!
Finger Lakes B&B has excellent breakfast and service! It's a little hot in the house with only AC in the bedrooms. But the house is very lovely and well kept up as it is very old. The Kowalskis are very knowledgeable about the house and about the surrounding town and community. Their recommendation of a local winery was spot on!!
Burney and Susan provided cozy accommodations with a relaxing atmosphere. The landscaping is absolutely beautiful......so many flowers......which, in vases, also provided a refreshing scent throughout the shared area of the B&B. If all of this isn't enough to bring us back - Burney's breakfasts were more than delicious - made from all local and homegrown (right there on the property) veggies, fruit AND eggs. They took time to share conversation and suggestions about things of interest in the area.
We celebrated our 53rd anniversary at this delightful B&B. The owners, Burney and Susan, were very welcoming and helpful in suggesting local restaurants and wineries to visit. The breakfast was very good- French Toast and raspberry sherbet made from scratch and the eggs came fresh from there own chickens. The place was clean and comfortable. We felt very much at home and will return
We spent a fabulous 2 night Anniversary stay at The Willows. The home is gorgeous, beautiful views of Keuka Lake, amazingly delicious breakfasts & the hosts, Jim & Kathy were warm & inviting. Sitting around the fire pit on the deck overlooking the lake while enjoying the NYS wine was wonderful. We stay in a lot of B&Bs & The Willows is certainly one of the best. Rob & Ruth Ann, Milford DE
We stayed at Trimmer House recently while visiting friends on Keuka lake. everything was perfect which meant we could enjoy our visit. The innkeepers have thought of everything and the place was extra clean. They serve a delicious breakfast and accommodate special requests without issue. We would certainly stay there again. Much better than the chain hotel/motel options and it costs less as well.
Susan and Burney were gracious, helpful, and friendly. The accommodations were excellent, clean and comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious. The deck, gazebo and grounds offer places to roam and relax. Easy and close access to Penn Yan, Keuka Lake and Seneca Lake. A wonderful place to stay!
Finger Lakes B & B is a wonderful, quaint place to stay! The owners are excellent chefs and hosts! This B & B is near several great vineyards/wineries. One of which they highly recommended, Keuka Springs, and it was a beautiful vineyard with outstanding wine! I highly recommend this B&B!
If you're looking for a genuine B&B with outstanding hospitality and gorgeous Finger Lakes landscapes, then Los Gatos comes highly recommended. Burney & Susan's place provides access to several acres of self-sustaining gardens and woods conveniently located on the west side of Seneca Lake, which provides easy access to Watkins Glen and many of the region's best wineries. We stayed in one of these cabins, Casa Verde, which was clean, peaceful, and very quaint. Breakfasts are made using eggs, fruits, and vegetables sourced from Burney and Susan's own chicken and gardens. They were extremely delicious. Burney and Susan were lovely hosts, happy to provide us with details about the area, as well, as pleasant morning conversation. If and when we make our next trip to the Finger Lakes, we would be happy to stay at Los Gatos again!
We had a wonderful two night stay at The Willows B&B on Keuka Lake. Kathy & Jim were perfect hosts. Our room was beautiful with a lovely view of the Lake. Kathy's breakfasts were so delicious & creative. Started our days out terrific. The B& B is spotless, the decks were great for socializing & sharing conversation & wine with the other guests. We will definitely return in the near future.
We had a great stay at The Willows on Keuka Lake in the Finger Lakes region of NY, beautiful view of the lake from their lovely deck, we had a nice cool evening around the fire pit. Breakfast was delicious, Kathy is a great chef and Jim gave us a wonderful boat ride around Keuka Lake. The lake has lots quaint towns with little stores to explore, as well as wineries.
This was our first time to the Finger Lakes and we were lucky to find Trimmer House. Everything was perfect and the innkeepers were very helpful with suggestions. The B&B is historic and romantic with lots of nice touches.
We had a great time staying here with Susan and Burney. They were so welcoming and made you feel like you were a part of their family. The breakfast every morning was delicious. We even bought some of their homemade jellies to take home! We can't wait to stay there again. - Ronelle & Justin
This was our first stay at the Willows, having chosen it from B&B's listed on the internet. Before we even entered the doorway we were greeted by our hostess who made us feel immediately at home. The location is lovely. Our room was clean, bright and cozy with a beautiful view of the lake. Breakfast was something you would expect in a high class restaurant. No need for lunch after eating the wonderful food that was served. Kathy and Jim, the owners, besides being very hospitable, were extremely helpful in suggesting restaurants, points of interest, etc. We feel so lucky to have found The Willows to spend our 44th anniversary and we definitely plan on returning.
Burnie and Susan host the most amazing little bed and breakfast. The food? Amazing. The hosts? So sweet! Their ability to point you in the right direction for your stay? Completely on point! Burnie even gave me a running route to use before breakfast in the morning so I didn't feel as guilty when I complete indulged on his homemade EVERYTHING! I promise, you won't regret going to Los Gatos!
My husband and I first stayed at the Finger Lakes B&B in 2013 and we loved it then. We attended a Keuka Lake Wine Trail event then, and finally returned in 2017 to do another event and of course, stayed here again, in our favorite room, the Music Room. Cindy and Casey are absolutely wonderful hosts in every way!
From the moment we checked in we felt welcome and Susan and Burney's quaint B&B located in the heart of the Finger Lakes region of NYS. The room was bright and clean. The breakfast was amazing. And the hospitality beyond compare. We would recommend staying at Los Gatos to anyone looking for a similar experience while traveling. Ellen & Gordon
Gorgeous views, clean, spacious suite, amazing breakfasts! The location to Penn Yan and Lake Keuka is perfect. I cannot think of anything negative to say about this place. We will definitely be back!
