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.
How to Get There
This is our 2nd time to the Bragdon house with our friends. Jen is an amazing woman and owner who takes her time to make sure that everyone and everything is taking care of when we arrive. Every room is tastefully and beautifully decorated with charm and flare of early century decor. We felt very comfortable throughout the house and Jen made sure we knew where everything was. She has plenty of clean and comfy blankets for cold nights on the deck so we can enjoy the lake views. She makes the best scones and coffee/tea for breakfast. This is the only place we would ever stay at when we come to Geneva in the Finger Lakes. Close to everything, walking distance to restaurants and the lake. Just a great place to stay!!!
What a wonderful B&B, with fun friendly mother and daughter hosts, our short visit very enjoyable. I knew after my phone conversation with Jen about a room that I wanted to stay at Bragdon House. She made me feel so welcomed on the phone. When we arrived, we found all she told me to be true. The room was so nice and the bed was especially comfortable. She had offered me the wine tour and I was hesitant because of the price, but after taking the tour with Diane as our guide my husband and I felt it was well worth it. She was a great guide and took us to wineries we would have never found. Having her drive us made it easy for us to taste lots of wines and not have to worry about driving. Diane was also helpful in giving us information on where to have dinner and where else to visit. We would definitely stay here again.
Jen and Diane, we had the most amazing time!!! Sooooo travelers, Diane and Jen are the mother-daughter duo of this incredible bed and breakfast in Geneva. Our room was beautiful. It was spotless. The bed was one of the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in (and I’m a 5-star hotel snob). And our mornings on your porch with the most AMAZING carrot cake muffins and coffee were just magical. I can’t wait for the cookbook you need to write.... to be released. We felt like family.... and we can’t thank you enough for everything....and can’t wait to re-visit our home away from home again. Love you guys so much!!! Lisa and Jonathan!!
My husband and I loved our stay, at the Bragdon House B&B! The rooms were lovely and the proprietors, Di and Jenn were fabulous! Both grow up on the Lake and are super friendly and full of wonderful suggestions on where to go and what to do!
We loved the light fare breakfast to start our day and enjoyed both mingling with other guests as well as our quiet time alone together. There are multiple private/public areas within the house and on the porch!! The location is fabulous to walk into town for dinner and easy driving to other local restaurants and the many, many wineries of Seneca Lake. Highly recommend to all who are looking for a "home away from home". We also did a 7 hour wine tour with Di and had the best time! We drank and bought lots of delicious local wines!! BOOK the Wine Tours with Di and Jenn!! Definitely a must if you stay here. They are knowledgeable and helpful on directing you to the perfect wineries for your taste and budgets!
The Bragdon house is not only beautiful but the energy of Jenn is wonderful! She’s fun, knowledgeable and gives you what you are looking for! Don’t bother with Air B&B, call Jenn and stay at the best B&B!
