A a big sunny comfortable second floor room with new, comfortable queen bed, large Jacuzzi bath across the hall (robes provided. shared with hosts), flat screen TV, wireless internet, kitchen and house privileges. Full hot breakfast included in our breakfast room on your schedule. Antiques, books, and REAL HOSTS! Accommodations available for separate beds.

The space
Geneva, NY, is the Finger Lake region’s crown jewel – with a day-time “big city” feel and peaceful quietude at night. If you are passing through from one big city to the next, or if you are simply wandering this beautiful area, refreshment and renewal can be found at Gram’s authentic 1886 Eastlake Victorian home.

Upstairs, we have made available for guests the large master bedroom at the head of the stairs. It is furnished with a queen-sized bed, and served by a spacious bathroom just across the hall, shared with hosts (which is also a laundry room—a godsend to some of our previous guests!). At the other end of the long hallway, behind a weathered privacy door, lies a smaller guest suite—also featuring a comfy queen bed and served by a private bathroom. Flat screen TV is available in both rooms, plus wireless internet. Kitchen and house privileges are assumed for our guests. Breakfast is served on your schedule in our breakfast room (and sometimes in our dining room, if a larger table is required). Find antiques, books, and REAL HOSTS who actually live here and like to get acquainted, but who can also get you on your way promptly!

Please ask about pets – three cats live here already. If you are traveling with animals, make sure they are flea-free, please! Ours currently are and want to remain that way. And please bring a crate for your dog/s if they are skittish about new places.

If the Finger Lakes is your destination, it is unlikely you will run out of things to do: restaurants, history, wine tours, hiking, boating, biking, and antique malls. If you just wish to relax in place, feel free to do so on the wide front porch of our gracious home with a cool glass of tea (or local wine). You might be excused for thinking you’ve stepped back in time: expansive stained glass windows above the grand staircase; elegant double pocket doors opening into the front parlor; a kitchen right out of a '20s movie--unless you want to watch that movie in our state of the art DLP projection, surround-sound home theater--or access the internet or receive a fax at the high tech business center concealed within the massive oak roll-top desk. Piano enthusiasts are encouraged to visit the music room. Our Knabe grand piano features its original 1923, fully functional AMPICO expression player system. Pull a roll and have Rachmaninoff serenade you. Check out a selection of books from your hostess’s thousand-plus volume library. As a published mystery writer, Marolyn "Gram" Caldwell has amassed quite a collection.

Hobart and William Smith Colleges are within walking distance if you are visiting a student or coming for an event. Our home's location also provides easy walks to Seneca Lake as well as to downtown, with access to fine dining and superb entertainment. The Smith Opera House books first class entertainment, sometimes including the Rochester Orchestra. Check Geneva’s schedules on the internet if you wish. Local festivals abound.

We look forward to meeting you!

Published Mystery writer, love to meet new people.
During your stay
As much as desired. We love to entertain - or you can have your privacy. Breakfast when you want. We live on premises, we love people, and we interact. Be warned - we're very liberal politically !
