Since our children typically celebrate Thanksgiving with their in-laws we choose this time as a "get-away". Our initial plan was to stay at the Sherwood Inn and have dinner there. Since the Sherwood was full we were referred to Hollow Hobbit B&B. What luck! Although our dinner was wonderful at the Sherwood it was bedlam in the lobby area, not... More

This was a gift from friends when my husband was home on R&R from Iraq. It was a wonderful place for a reconnect and enjoy each other during the short period we were together. We appreciated the quietness of the area. We went to the Sherwood Inn for dinner - a wonderful choice. Not much in walking distance to the... More

We chose this B&B because the Sherwood Inn which is located right in Skaneateles was full. This is one of their other properties just 2 miles outside town. The inn boasts sweeping views of Lake Skaneateles saying that it is just across the road from the lake. What they failed to mention is that parallel lake road is about a... More

My wife and I spent our honeymoon week touring the Finger Lakes Region. We looked for B&Bs that were elegant but not outrageously priced. We checked on Hobbit Hollow online, saw the reviews here and booked it. The house is tucked away from the Lake on a quiet hillside. The interior is immaculate and well-decorated with fine antiques. Our room... More

I spent the night at Hobbit Hollow Farm B&B with my boyfriend and it was everything we could have hoped for. The Innkeeper was a complete doll. She tended to our every need and was also conscience of our privacy. The rooms were all perfect right down to the ironed sheets and big fluffy towels. We were looking for a... More

I loved the Hobbit Hollow. We stayed here for a night in the fall and it is just beautiful there. The breakfast was amazing and the service was great too. We had dinner at the Sherwood Inn (which owns Hobbit Hollow). It was a great weekend.

Maybe the wealthy investor hired a new innkeeper. This one is helpful but not at all intrusive. We stayed over for our anniversary and had the Masters Suite..with a gas fireplace,a double whirlpool and an enclosed porch. I am not too big into the decorative touches but it seemed just fine to me..We spent most of our time in the... More

This was our third stay at this beautiful spot overlooking the vineyards leading down to one of NY's famous finger-lakes. We were greeted warmly by Celeste, the innkeeper and her Corgy. She had baked cookies for us and we enjoyed a few with tea. We went out back and ran the Corgy for awhile around the horse corrals and then... More

My fiance' and I stayed at Hobbit Hollow in July after reading the review in Frommer's and on Trip advisor. It is a lovely house set back on a very sleepy stretch along the lake.

NEW INNKEEPER! Thank you and we did want to respond to the review regarding our innkeeper from 2005. She certainly meant well but did enjoy discussing politics! She has since left and our current innkeeper is wonderful and certainly looks forward to offering our 2008 guests a warm welcome to Hobbit Hollow! More

We had an unexpected overnight stay at Hobbitt Hollow recently. I cannot express enough of the wonderful way in which we were treated. The room was fabulous. It had an outside terrace, a fireplace, a jacuzzi and the room itself was very large. The bed was very, very comfortable and the decor was so homey. When we came downstairs for... More

“Size matters here. We loved the Chanticleer Room. No lake view but the weather was rainy and the lake fogged in a bit. The smaller rooms would be too confining for our tastes.”
