Ken and Diane are gracious hosts and the house is immaculate and restored perfectly! I would most definitely recommend this B and B to anyone who was planning a vacation to the finger lakes region. The food was delicious! The barrister bucks are also a nice touch and they saved us a lot of money along the wine trail. We...

For a B&B to be successful, it must have three essentials - good night's rest, convenient location to other attractions, and a breakfast that starts your day. Barristers's B&B has this and more - very cordial proprietors. Ken and Diane were the perfect hosts for our one-night stay. They shared their B&B experience and the town's history. Breakfast was enjoyable...

My wife and I frequently travel and when we travel to more rural areas we tend to use B & B s. . . So, we have been at more than a few. Most exaggerate their claims and some like the Barristers ( @ Seneca Falls ) " fit the bill". Unlike the ones that " fit the bill" Barristers...

While driving back to New Jersey from Niagara Falls, we knew we needed to find a hotel room. Checked the AAA book for rooms in the Finger Lakes Region and called from the road. Luckily for us, there had been a cancellation, and there was one room available. We stayed in the "Grace Yawger Room", which is their smallest queen...

Barristers is a very attractive Victorian. Diane and Ken are exceptionally helpful. The breakfast is different each morning and a gourmet's delight. If you like old Victorian homes, walk across the street for a tour of that home.

We stayed at this Bed and Breakfast just outside the center of Seneca Falls (scene of Bedford Falls in ' It's a wonderful Life'). 'Zuzu' actually stayed here during the filming of Wonderful Life... Diane and Ken are the perfect hosts, with coupons and information on a multitude of local wineries, restaurants, cheese factories, breweries and attractions. Lots to do...

Our rooms and baths were generous and comfortable; excellent beds! Diane and Ken are delightful knowledgeable hosts. Breakfast was huge, delicious and more than we could eat. We look forward to a return visit for more bicycling and exploration.

My husband and I and another couple spent 5 nights with Ken and Diane. This was our first trip to the Finger Lakes area and Ken and Diane could not have been more accommodating. The rooms were charming and welcoming. The Breakfasts are out of this world. Every morning we were served a 3 Course breakfast utilizing local fare which...

Barrister's made our first visit to the Finger Lakes a wonderful & unforgettable experience. Ken & Diane (the Inn's owners) greet you at the door like you are family. Ken helped take our luggage to Grandmother's Room. A cozy, nicely decorated room with a huge bathroom that used to be Grandmother's kitchen! Both were eager to give you advice about...

This bed and breakfast is in a fabulous location close to many vineyards and state parks which were gorgeous. When we sat down for breakfast Saturday morning, we had no idea what to expect. We were served three delicious courses which kept us satisfied until late afternoon. The presentation was fabulous and the taste, just wonderful! Ken and Diane spent...
