I had never stayed at a Bed and Breakfast before so I wasn't sure what to expect but the experience here was fantastic. My girlfriend and I were planning our first getaway together and as we looked for places to stay the Beekman House had excellent reviews so we decided to give it a shot. As soon as we walked...

Excellent Victorian style B & B with a culinary flair provided by gracious hosts Chef and Lady France. Outstanding culinary delights prepared from scratch for breakfasts. It starts your day off perfectly. Close to both Keuka and Seneca Lakes wineries, restaurants and lake activities. We would stay there again and highly recommend to all.

My husband and I always stay at B&B's when we travel and The 1897 Beekman House was one of the top one's we have had the pleasure to stay at. From the greeting at the front door by Gerry (Chuck was out giving a wine tour to guests), to the wonderful, delicious breakfasts made by Chuck, this B&B is spectacular....

Chuck and Gerry are the sweetest owners of this elegant Victorian B&B. We loved the Royal Room, and enjoyed each 3-course gourmet breakfast prepared by Chuck, a formally-trained chef. Dundee is a quaint down with a few local places, but only 15 minutes from Watkins Glen, and 5-10 minutes from amazing wineries like Lakewood, Glenora, Starkey's Lookout, and more. We...

Chuck n Gerry are exemplary hosts in an inn that is itself exemplary. The Beekman house revels in its Victorian style as much as its chef revels in his culinary skill. From a beautiful interior setting to the truly beautiful breakfast you will not be disappointed. We even learned some new french words to impress our stogy friends.

My wife have enjoyed staying at B&B's in the US and Canada. The Beekman House ranks at the top of our list. The house is historic and beautiful as well as completely up to date. Spacious rooms, comfortable beds, bathrooms that are not large but well fitted out with modern shower stalls and plush towels. Lots of little touches like...

We visited in the very beginning of the season, so there were no grapes (or even leaves!) on the vines, and we still had an amazing time (of course there's still wine everywhere!). Chuck and Gerry are splendid hosts, and the house is beautiful and conveniently located. The breakfasts were easily the most amazing breakfasts we've ever had!!! Chuck makes...
