Bob and Marilyn were fantastic hosts. The accommodations were exactly as described and we found our stay quite comfortable.
Bob and Marilyn were very welcoming at their lovely historic home in the woods near Cazenovia. The four of us were comfortable in the upstairs--Dick and I slept on the hide-a-bed in the office while our friends had the upstairs bedroom and we all shared the upstairs bath. The view is lovely and we REALLY enjoyed watching the variety of birds Bob feeds. And we had a good time exploring Marilyn's studio where she paints beautiful furniture pieces. After coffee and toast the next morning we explored Cazenovia's shops--especially the nice Artisan Co-op shop where Marilyn and other local artists sell their wares.
Marilyn and Bob were fantastic hosts. We exchanged our life stories,
and learned of of their family's history. Bob did tremendous work to
renovate and maintain this beautiful late 1700s house in the country.
Together with Marilyn's fantastic artwork, the house was decorated
perfectly. By the end, Thuy and I both felt like we were part of
family, visiting after a long while. We regret not having spent more
time at the house with them, but that was only due to our busy visit
to Syracuse. We came in after a long drive from Baltimore, and
instantly relaxed. The room and house felt heavenly. We enjoyed
everything, from hearing the sound of light rain pattering on the
ground at night to waking up to bird song, all in a very comfortable
bed. Looking out of the bedroom window towards the horizon was just
amazing. Standing outside was breath-taking. The house is along a very
scenic and beautiful Rt. 20, not far from I-81. The location allows
one to really commune with nature – a perfect place to retreat and
relax. I can say, with certainty, that we plan to come back again
soon. Thank you Marilyn and Bob! ~ Carlos and Thuy
Well, we love Bob and Marilyn.
Our daughter is a freshman at nearby Colgate and we are from Portand, Oregon. The house is my cup of tea. Built in 1780 something which by itself it amazing. It's a lovely place to stay, comfortable bed, great bathroom, shower, etc.
More importantly, Bob and Marilyn are wonderful people, interesting, interested and inspiring. So grateful that they were willing to share a little piece of their lives with us. BTW, our daughter is doing great, woohoo!!!

Marilyn and Bob were the perfect hosts! We truly felt like we were treasured members of the family. They are very warm and kind. Their home is beautiful and only 1 and 1/2 miles from Cazenovia, a lovely, Norman Rockwell-esque town in upstate NY. Four of us stayed with the Fegans during a local college graduation and I am so glad we did. My sister and I traveled with my 88 year old parents (the graduate's grandparents). Marilyn and Bob were very understanding of traveling with older people and the patience that entails. My parents felt so welcomed and at home. I can't thank Marilyn and Bob enough for their hospitality and kindness. We had a GREAT time and feel we made new friends. The trip was outstanding in every way. Thank you, Marilyn and Bob!
We feel the same way.
Bob and Marilyn were terrific guests. We didn't get to talk all that much due to our schedules, but it was nice to get to know them the bit that I did!
Bob and Marilyn were model guests--friendly, courteous, and enthusiastic about the local and lodging. They're welcome back anytime!
I've had pleasure to host Mr. & Mrs. Fegan while they were visiting their family here in NYC!
They are very pleasant, clean, respectful, and easy to get along with! I would be honored to have them as my guests again at some point in the future...
Highly recommended to any potential hosts/guests!
