My husband and I just returned from a wonderful long weekend at the Magnolia Place B&B. Simply fabulous!! We have stayed at several B&Bs over the years and Magnolia is one of the best! The house is lovely and the owners, Ted and Terri, couldn't be more welcoming. Ted's breakfasts are an experience on their own! Each room is unique... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to get away for a night. We decided on the Magnolia Place. It was wonderful! Immaculantly clean. I have always been weary of B&B's just because of that. I've traveled the US extensively and parts of Europe. I've never stayed at a B&B before but after this experience, I'm willing to try it again! We... More

Ted doesn't need to let rooms to earn a living, he could just make breakfast for a few people a day and demand an exorbitant amount of money and I would stand in the cold waiting for the door to open. I can't say enough about how good it is. He's also about as nice as possible without being imposing.... More

This was my wife and I's second visit to Ted and Terry's B & B. Both times were outstanding visits. The house is immaculate, but very very welcoming. It is a completely renovated older house overlooking Seneca Lake. Ted and Terri are very nice people and great to sit and talk to. This last time we were there the weekend... More

Ted and Terri were amazing hosts. Me and my girlfriend went for a two-night stay during the week and had the most enjoyable time. The room was beautiful: up to date with technology and amenities (Jacuzzi + electric fireplace), while the inside was historically preserved (classic bed design and fresh draping). The dog Irish is a blast to play with.... More

My wife and I went to the Seneca Lake Wine Trail for an overnight visit and stayed at the Magnolia Place B&B in Hector. On a Monday in early November, the wineries were uncrowded so we got plenty of attention. We are not regular drinkers but bought several bottles of wine anyway. At the B&B, we were one of two...

I don't usually write reviews, but Magnolia Place is very deserving of one. The view from the front porch overlooking Seneca Lake is beautiful. So relaxing sitting out there early in the morning while sipping hot coffee. At 9:00am the breakfast bell chimes for the most delicious breakfast I've had in a long time. Terri & Ted are awesome hosts!... More

Spent a few days at the Magnolia Inn overlooking a gorgeous vineyard and Seneca Lake, beautiful place to unwind and relax in New York's wine country! The owners are so nice, they made us feel right at home! Breakfasts were outstanding!
