You will find not find better, more welcoming hosts in the Finger Lakes than Ken and Diane at Barrister's. They pay attention to every detail in their rooms, and breakfast is five star every time. You will not be disappointed.

Thanks for the kind words Amy. It is truly a pleasure to see old and new friends come through the front door. It makes this a fun and rewarding 'job'. We hope to see you again soon.

If are looking for a quiet, comfortable attention to detail get away- this is the place to stay. Ken and Diane, the owners, did their job with ease and enjoyment. The 3 course breakfast each morning was visually superb and equally matched in taste. The homemade ricotta danish was my husbands favorite. My favorite was the pumpkin french toast. There...

Located in the village of Seneca Falls, this beautiful home and gracious innkeepers Ken and Diane are just the best. They are very friendly and most helpful to guide us to our points of interest. They love their B&B and it shows. This was our second time staying here and we plan to return again in June.

Barristers Inn is a beautiful, historical home and our room was extremely comfortable. Ken gave us lots of great advice about Seneca Falls and he is a wonderful breakfast chef. We found a 9:00 breakfast was a little late though but it was delicious!

From the moment we arrived late evening, Ken, was the perfect host. Welcoming us to Barristers and getting us settled in was followed with directions to Goulds for a late dinner. We had a two room space with comfortable king bed, newly renovated bath. The sofa provided place to relax while my wife was in bed sleeping. But the best...

Seneca Falls is such a wonderful, sleepy little village with great history. We enjoyed walking around the town and checking out the women's rights park sites and other history. We stayed at Barrister's B&B which is located in easy walking distance to the town center. The B&B is a great classic brick mansion and the rooms are tastefully decorated in...

Wonderfully decorated, clean and comfortable room in historic Victorian house. Spacious en suite bath with jacuzzi tub. Refrigerator upstairs for guest's use. Centrally located--walk to restaurants, shops, canal, historic sites. Great library almost just across the street. Nice for exploring Cayuga and Seneca lakes. Breakfast included homemade muffins, really nice fruit salad, and tasty frittata and sausage, plus all the...

Lovely house in the heart of Seneca Falls, Bedford Falls in a Wonderful Life, within walking distance of the museums and restaurants. Lunch is superb in the local deli. Catch the Wonderful Life exhibit. Breakfast was very good. The room was nicely furnished with older furniture and the bed very comfortable.

We planned an overnight trip to enjoy some of the history and attractions in the area. The B & B is located within walking distance for most visitors (or a very short drive) to the downtown area including the "It's A Wonderful Life Museum". Ken and Diane were wonderful hosts, the B & B is lovely, very clean and beautifully...

Choosing to anchor our stay at Barrister's was definitely the right decision. The owners were very warm and welcoming. The food is delicious and the rooms are well decorated. A truly wonderful place to stay.
