Our Covid-19 response and protocols
Stay Small, Stay Safe at one of the premier Bed and Breakfast’s in the Finger Lakes
With the evolving coronavirus, we are taking every extra effort to keep our Inn, its rooms and common areas clean and safe for you, our employees and the community at large. Currently the Inn is accepting reservations and is open for business. We are closely following the evolving Covid-19 Pandemic and if a reservation needs to be canceled or delayed, we are happy to help you find alternative dates or assist with a cancellation.
The State of our Region
Currently, our region of New York is open with some restrictions. Numerous local restaurants, wineries, breweries, parks and museums are open for business. Most of the wineries are requiring reservations for tastings, it is best to visit the websites of wineries you plan to visit prior to your stay to view their polices and make reservations. Restaurants are serving at 75% capacity indoors, most outdoor dining will open back up as the weather improves. Again, many of the restaurants are requiring reservations, especially on the weekends. Takeout is also an option with many of our local eateries.
