We stayed in room #4 overlooking the lake in the beginning of November. Absolutely beautiful view and cozy, intimate room. The owners are wonderful and so helpful, and the breakfast is delicious! Would recommend to friends and family.

Nothing be could be more relaxing than falling a sleep to the sound of the waves on Lake Cayuga. Our room #4, overlooks the lake, is tastefully decorated with a large bath and Jacuzzi tub. It is the perfect setting for unwinding with a glass of Finger Lakes wine! Jim and Tammy are gracious hosts who see to your every... More

Just an amazing view with this B&B right on Cayuga Lake (they even have their own pier and kayaks for guests to use). We stayed in a room on the third floor and basically had the floor all to ourselves. Definitely loved being able to look out the window and see the beautiful view of the lake. We were a... More

I love the Finger Lakes area, it's a great place to take mini day trips exploring the beautiful state parks and vineyards. If you can combine that with a lake front B&B, it's the perfect vacation. Driftwood Inn's accommodations were great; yummy breakfast in the morning to start the day and a great atmosphere to come back to at the... More

I had read the reviews of your B&B but the impact on my arrival at seeing the beautiful lake Cayuga in your backyard left me in awe. What a beautiful spot.

We stayed three nights in Room 2. Couldn't have asked for a better location, room, knowledge of the area, or breakfast. Every aspect of our stay was positive. The location is close to restaurants, wine trail, and areas to engage in outdoor activities. Tammy and Jim are truly professional innkeepers.

Spent Labor Day weekend 2016 at this lovely B&B on the shores of Lake Cayuga. Gorgeous view of the lake from many of the room, Room 4 is the best in the house! Delicious breakfasts, lovely hosts, quiet & out of the way, but easy access to main roads to get you around the region. Will definitely return upon future... More

We had a wonderful, relaxing weekend at this B&B. Such pleasant hosts who accommodated my gluten free needs for breakfast. Dine out on the porch overlooking the lake or indoors. Close to wineries. One even a short walk away. Laze around on the lawn in the sun or under a tree, or use one of their kayaks or the paddleboat... More
