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.

We Always Feel at Home
Reviewed 1 month ago

We have been coming to Geneva for almost 6 years and have always stayed at Bragdon House. We love the welcoming atmosphere of the house and Jen & Diana. We stayed for a week this time. We were finalizing our wedding plans and really needed to relax after days spent dealing with vendors.

The rooms are cozy with private bathrooms. We enjoy the screened in lanai as much as possible for the scenic views of Seneca Lake and the comforting atmosphere of being outside. There is a small refrigerator on the lanai for guests to use, which can get filled pretty quickly when all rooms are booked. *My suggestion would be to put a small fridge in each room, so leftovers are not monopolizing the space for public use.*

We love that Bragdon House is walking distance into Geneva. Lots of great restaurants and a lovely wine bar. There is also a trail around the top part of Seneca, for those people into exercise or nature walks. We travel around Seneca to our favorite wineries, every time we are here. We have also enjoyed wineries on Keuka Lake, which is a very short distance away.

Best B&B in Geneva
Reviewed 2 months ago

My husband and I recently celebrated his birthday at the Bragdon House. We were greeted with a campaign toast on arrival, which was very special. This was nor our first stay at the Bragdon House. This is our place of choice when ever we are in the Finger Lakes. The hosts, Jen and Dianna, will make you feel like family! The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable. They are so close to downtown that you can walk to dinner on a nice evening. I highly recommend checking out the Bragdon House if you are planning a trip to the Finger Lakes.

Wonderful B & B in Geneva

My husband and I have gone to the Bragdon House for 5 years now. It is always relaxing, beautiful and the service is great. Jen and Diana always make sure that we are completely relaxed and ensure that we have a great time. The B & B is beautiful with gorgeous Lake views. We have stayed in all of the rooms, love the Pheobe and Di's Suite.

Beautiful house, great staff!

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast
Reviewed 4 months ago

This is a special place. It is a beautiful home and every room is different---some really big and some are smaller. All are beautifully furnished. The hostess is just wonderful and a wealth of information about the Finger Lakes area. She knows all the best restaurants and wineries.
The breakfast is just amazing. Tons of delicious food, and all the people currently staying in the home eat together, so it is a great way to meet people from all over the country and world!
Would recommend this B & B with great enthusiasm.
