It was our first trip to the Finger Lakes region, and everything was perfect - the house, our host, John, our fabulous breakfasts, and even the weather was perfect the entire weekend. John helped us plan our excursions by giving us directions and maps, recommending the best wineries to vist (must sees), places to eat, and giving us some local history of the area. All were so helpful for first time visitors.
Our stay at the house was like staying with relatives or friends. It was a home, and not like a rental. Personal photos, books and magazine collections, big, cozy chairs all lended their charm, and made our stay very comfortable. My husband, who has a hard time sleeping in stange beds, slept like a baby, so it had to be comfortable. We were past the swimming season and the pool was closed, but we did enjoy the gardens and garden room where we had our wine we purchased from the wineries.
All in all, it was a delightful weekend, and when we come back, it will be like visiting an old friend.
