My husband and I were welcomed by Tanya, who is delightful. The home is beautiful and has such wonderful indoor space for guests to enjoy, including a billiards table. There are beverages such as water, coffee, soda etc out which I think is a nice extra touch that not all B&B's do. Our room was comfortable and we slept quite...

It's so easy to stay in a normal hotel when away on business - that you have to fight the temptation and try a B & B. We did just that on our trip last week to visit some clients in Penn Yan, NY. The actual home was built in the early 1800's and is very lovely and well kept....

We stayed in the William Morris Oliver Master Suite. The room was spacious, warm and inviting with toiletries for anything you may have forgotten. Our hosts were very helpful in giving us advice on daily outings including a wonderful hike on the outlet trail. Our daily breakfasts were delicious with many choices to choose. We were very comfortable within the...

The Fox Inn is a beautiful old home with modern comforts. Owners Tanya and Mike were welcoming and gave great recommendations for our visit. The B&B is close to wineries, shopping, and restaurants. Breakfast each morning was delicious!

Fox Inn B&B is fantastic! The owners Mike and Tanya are welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable. The house is immaculate and so was our room, which was large, bright, and very comfortable. Plenty of plush towels and very nice toiletries, and bathrobes are a very nice touch. We did not have to ask for anything as everything needed was already provided....

We only spent one night at this house, but if our schedule allowed, we would have loved to stay longer. First, the location of the house is ideal for exploring Penn Yan. The house is beautiful and in great shape. Our bedroom was beautiful, large and full of antique furniture. Playing pool in the game room was a pleasant way...

My friend and I stayed in the William Fox suite, consisting of the Blue Room and the Red Room that share a bath on the back hallway. We stayed three nights and the place was pretty quiet. The arrangement of the two rooms and shared bath works fine. The Blue Room is larger and better furnished with a nice poster...

Breakfast is the special of this B & B. A menu with choices that are prepared by a terrific chef. Only B & B we have stayed in that offered so much for breakfast. The room was clean and had all the normal amenities. The old furniture was hard to sit on and quite difficult to get off of, being...
