We're from Central new York, Hamilton, and will be driving down that morning.
We had a wonderful stay. Highly recommended!
We had a lovely stay at Johnnycake Hill. Liz & Tom were very welcoming. My daughters and I enjoyed a great breakfast and lively conversation in the morning before bringing my oldest daughter to college.
Also, Liz was very helpful and flexible when I needed to change my reservation a week or so before our stay. And the view from Johnnycake Hill is breathtaking!
Our experience at Johnnycake Hill B&B couldn't have been better! Everything was very clean and our room was set up to accommodate our family comfortably.
Upon arriving we were invited to relax by taking a walk around their lovely property. The view is amazing and stunning -- it renewed our weary souls after a long day of travel! They encouraged us to make ourselves at home, and they provided us with as much privacy as needed to settle in -- yet were available nearby for questions.
The sweeping view greeted us again at the breakfast table where Liz served us a scrumptious breakfast and kept our coffee cups full.
The Brackett's are interesting conversationalists and we enjoyed our time with them thoroughly!
We enjoyed our stay. The accommodations were comfortable and Elizabeth and Tom were very pleasant and accommodating to our schedule. Breakfast overlooking the valley and hills of upstate NY was delightful.
Liz & Tom are delightful hosts with a beautiful home. We were comfortable and felt very welcome. Highly recommended!
I called Elizabeth a few days before we were to arrive to confirm the address and she told me then that, because of a death in the family, she and her husband needed to fly out to see family the same weekend we were to scheduled to stay. She offered that we could still stay there, if we were comfortable with that, or she could suggest a different place if not. We chose to stay there as planned.
The house was on a stunning piece of land with views from every room. We were so pleased. And it was a couple of miles from Colgate, where we were visiting our daughter - so an ideal location. Elizabeth had left wonderful breakfast goodies (coffee cake, good bread, raspberries, juice, eggs etc) and we made use of them all while there.
In the morning we enjoyed taking walks in the neighborhood and sitting by the wood stove afterwards. Only wish we could have met our hosts personally, especially after looking at some of their books (of which there are many many). They are world travelers and actively involved in supporting education abroad. Clearly good people.
Pastoral location with fabulous view of pond and countryside yet only 3 minutes from Hamilton/Colgate. Lovely custom home, lively conversation. Responsive hosts. Couldn't be better.
My daughter and I enjoyed staying with the Brackett's. They have a very lovely and serene country house overlooking a pond on the top of a scenic hill.
Elizabeth serves a nice breakfast including fresh fruit, and table conversation is as interesting as this educated and well travelled couple.
I highly recommend the Brackett's if you are looking to stay in the area.
Liz and Tom were wonderful hosts, living in a beautiful home in lovely Hamilton, NY. Excellent breakfast, clean, comfortable, and private rooms and bath, good conversation and company. Thank you so much for making our stay so enjoyable! I would highly recommend staying with them to anyone visiting the area.
Elizabeth and Tom are a veritable pleasure to have as guests. They're just so youthful,intelligent and fun.And one has to appreciate their devotion to the causes of their foundation. I was so happy to see them again since their last visit in November and, practically speaking, they leave the guest suite so immaculate it's hard to beleive they slept here..
Elizabeth and her husband are such sweet souls. I was happy to be able to accommodate their needs on such short notice. Anyone who travels to see a 3-year old grandchild's sack race is alright with me.
Elizabeth and Tom are a gift,truly special, wonderful, intelligent, thoughtful, considerate guests. the absolute best!
