Livingston Manor, New York
Reviewed 20 September 2015

This was one of our most remote, peaceful, lovely stays ever in New England. The day starts with a canoe ride on Kezar Lake, coffee on the swing, and a delicious and filling gourmet breakfast. Dennis is very accommodating but also gives you your space and privacy. Grace is a very lovely assistant who helps to keep the place spotless!...

A lovely, quiet location across the street from Kezar Lake. Our room (Jean) was very comfortable with a very nice view of the lake. The two common sitting rooms were pleasant places to sit. There was a swing and rockers on the porch with beautiful plants all around. The swing, chairs and hammock beside the lake were a pleasant place...

Thank you for your kind words. Kezar Lake is such a gem whether one enjoys it by boating or swimming or fishing or just viewing. We have added outdoor tables for breakfasting while enjoying the view of Kezar Lake. And with New London 3 miles up the road as you noted there are many nearby restaurants for guests to enjoy.

There are a handful of 'terrible' reviews... They are all from nearly 10 years ago! Denis has been at the inn for 3 years and the food is spectacular (I would go again just for the breakfasts) and the atmosphere is elegantly homey. We used the kayaks and bicycles, sat on the porch and chatted with other weekend guests, and...

Thank you Loretta, we certainly hope you do return for winter. Each of our seasons is unique and each is beautiful and worth a visit. I wish every review were as kind and wonderful as yours, and evidenced such satisfaction with the inn and all we do.

Dennis & Angel gave us a magical time at the Inn. Our daughters ( 11&12) spent most of their time on or in the lake using the vast selection of kayaks, canoes and boats Dennis has, or laying in a hammock over looking the water. Our room was delightful ( family suite) and the breakfast was amazing.

Thank you so much for your kind review. The Family Suite is perfect for guests traveling with children as it gives parents and children a degree of privacy. And of course Kezar Lake is a magnet for children.

What an unexpected surprise!!! We had a great stay at the Follansbee Inn. The Inn is absolutely charming, the beds, especially the king bed in our room, were extremely comfortable. The location was excellent, a short drive to many different sites worth visiting. However, if you are not into the sightseeing, the lake provided hours of relaxing time, especially with...

Thank you Harley for such a fantastic review. You are so right, one can stay here by and on Kezar Lake with plenty to occupy them, or they can drive about the area and find many activities to enjoy.

The Follansbee Inn is the epitome of old time elegance, modestly but beautifully and historically furnished, with a picture perfect lakeside setting. Kezar Lake is peaceful and serene and the next door church and general store just enhance the step-back-to a gentler time ambiance.

We had a wonderful time at the inn, enjoying the lake, breakfast (especially outside), the nearby general store, and other area activities. We were sorry we had to leave early on Sunday...we ran out of time to do everything we would have liked to do. Our room (Bennett) was very nice, clean and comfortable. We also loved the common spaces,...

Fuel up with Dennis's rich morning fare before a day full of hiking, cycling, kayaking, canoeing, and all other water sports on Kezar Lake or just laze and read basking in the peace the wooded lake offers. Nearby Vernondale Country Store grills great burgers with irresistible French fries and makes rich milkshakes in an old fashioned setting.

We came here for a night with 4, 16 year old boys and found a piece of heaven. The welcome was wonderful, the rooms charming ( our king bed was to die for) . The boys mucked around on the lake and we cycled around . In all a truly delightful stay.
