A cozy room at a waterfront hideaway, in a wine region that's acclaimed among sommeliers

The Lowdown

Head back to nature and back in time in the beautiful Finger Lakes region. Bragdon House Bed and Breakfast/Wine Tours, on Seneca Lake, the largest and deepest of the 11, is surrounded by greenery and water outside, and packed with romantic touches inside. Experience both, without having to leave at all: the first, as you sit upon the lake-view veranda; the second, as you admire the toile wallpaper along the staircase, settle into an overstuffed armchair in one of the two traditionally designed parlors, and curl up in an impossibly comfy bathrobe.
This inviting property also serves a delicious daily breakfast, but it’s the location that really makes it worthy of its almost perfect TripAdvisor reviews and Certificate of Excellence: You’re right in the heart of the region’s best. Get your fill of cultural attractions, whether you explore the Rose Hill Mansion and dramatic Belhurst Castle, or head out antiquing nearby. You may even discover some of the 100-plus area wineries and breweries; the inn is proud to offer its very own wine tours (you pick between red, white, sweet or dry). And then there’s charming Geneva downtown, closer to you than to any other B&B, and housing FLX Table – America’s best new restaurant, according to USA TODAY’s 10Best Readers’ Choice poll.


Each Wi-Fi-equipped room has its own unique design and décor, but all share a traditional feel, plus


A small lakeside town with big-city culture, Geneva, an Arbor Day Foundation Tree City USA, offers the stunning beauty of Seneca Lake – the largest and deepest of the Finger Lakes – as well as a friendly downtown scene full of shops, restaurants, theater and music. Bragdon House Bed and Breakfast/Wine Tours puts you on the water and near the best of this upstate New York destination, including its wineries (which you can visit on the eponymous wine tours), shopping, golfing, arts and more. Bustling Linden Street is closer to you than to any other B&B and holds FLX Table, voted the best new restaurant in America in January 2017 in USA TODAY’s 10Best.com Readers’ Choice poll. Rochester and Syracuse are an hour away each, and New York and Brooklyn four to five.

Feel like family

My husband and I just visited the Bragdon House for the 2nd time this year. Jen and Di are amazing. We always stay in The Phoebe. The bed is so comfortable and you wake up to the sun coming up over Seneca Lake. You are treated like family while you are there. So, relaxing. Walking distance to some of the restaurants in Geneva. The muffins at breakfast are so delicious. Thanks again for another wonderful visit.

Charming & Fun!

We only got one night at this adorable and peaceful cottage but can't wait to return! The Bragdon House was comfortable and charming and in a beautiful setting overlooking Seneca Lake. Most importantly, the owners, Jen and her mother, were SO FUN! The inn was very easy, come and go as you please, but also just like visiting family with such wonderful hosts :) Thanks for a great stay!

Anniversary Weekend

What a wonderful weekend we just spent at the Bragdon House. Di’s suite is so beautiful and spacious. Even better than the room was our hostess Diana! We couldn’t have felt more at home and like we were spending time with family. Loved your scones and muffins -so delicious. Our personal wine tour that ended up including antiquing was awesome. Thanks for being so flexible. We’ll definitely be back!
