Great location right in the town of Penn Yan. The house was beautiful and enjoyed the stories Sue (Mike's mom) told us the following day after a wonderful breakfast. She was even able to accommodate my gluten free diet which was much appreciated. A small refrigerator located in one of the common rooms held our cheese we had purchased during...

Location was great for visiting the Keuka and Seneca Lake attractions (wineries, restaurants and landmarks). The accommodations were very nice and the common areas were incredible. The breakfast selection was wide and had very generous portions, but most importantly they were delicious. We will definitely stay here again.

At a friend's recommendation we stayed at the Fox Inn while visiting the Finger Lakes. Having never stayed a B&B before we were very happy with our accommodations and the well prepared breakfasts. The exceptional service provided by Renee and Mike made our stay very enjoyable. After enjoying a very good breakfast we often spent at least an hour socializing...

Everyone was so friendly and helpful. First time we ever stayed in a B&B so nothing to compare it to, but we were impressed. Located in the heart of town, so you can walk to local bars and restaurants. The whole town is friendly. Enjoyed having breakfast with the other guests and hearing their stories and recommendations. Just a great...

Penn Yan is my hometown, but both my parents are gone and we've sold the home in which I was raised. You can imagine, then, that going to visit is a bit of a nostalgic trip for me, with it's ups and downs. But staying at the Fox Inn was so comforting; it felt just like staying at home. The...

Lovely, historic house with a perfect location to access the Wine country and all events that the Lakes have to offer.

The owners of this stately Greek Revival were kind enough to squeak an air mattress into our double room so we 3 – parents and very tall 16-year-old son – could share a room, keeping our travel costs down. The family is friendly and thoughtful and, although we are not generally B&B lodgers, made us very comfortable indeed. The pool...

Travelling with friends to the Finger Lakes, we stayed at the Fox Inn for 3 nights in July. The Innkeepers are relaxed and welcoming. They were very helpful with advice and information about the area and sightseeing. The Inn is an historic home full of antiques. We stayed in the Lucy Hall Fox Bedroom which has a comfortable queen bed...

My wife and I made our first trip to the Finger Lakes and the Fox Inn was great. The Innkeepers were helpful and kind. They even waited up when we were delayed because of traffic. Can not recommend enough.
