We recently celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary at this lovely Inn. The rooms are new and fresh, dinner and the service was excellent. The location next to a State Preserve is terrific. We will definitely return. Can't wait to see the exterior addition completed. More...

Perfect!! I honestly do not know where to start! Tiffany and Kim have been working with me for some time now getting ready for this special day, they both have made this experience for me!!!! I should have been so nervous with traveling so far but they made me feel so confident with everything. The front desk was so helpful, the housekeepers were personable and always there to assist. The food was delicious and exceeded every expectation I had. We needed for nothing and I even stayed an extra night because I just wasn't ready to say goodbye. I cannot wait until next time! Thank you to all of the staff at the Inn!!! More...

Only stayed one night and it was wonderful. Beds were very comfortable. Even a soft pillow and a firmer one on bed for individual preference, Cocktails on the outside veranda in the evening. You can also sit around the outdoor fireplace and chat with others if you choose. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Continental breakfast was amazing. You can walk from the Inn to the Gorge Trail for the Taughannock Falls, Short easy hike to a lovely site. More...

There was a mix up and we waited a while for our order, Tiffany the manager personally came to our table and apologized for everything then when we went to leave, we had NO BILL, it was complimentary due to the mix up! Unbelievable, food was amazing and staff was amazing and extremely attentive after they realized the mix up, highly recommend! More...

Simply Amazing. By far the best location and property if you are visiting the finger lakes. I did a ton of research and was nervous I wouldn't pick the right lake to stay on. Trust me this is where you want to be. Whether it's the wine outdoors or eating you can all find it within a couple minutes of Inn at Taughannock!! Rooms are very clean with the most amazing views. I would honestly say this was the friendliest hotel staff I have ever encountered. It's a must stay in my eyes if you plan to visit the finger lakes! More...

Recently spent a Saturday night at the Inn, simply put - I don’t why you would want to stay anywhere else if you are in the area. We had be enjoying the wineries and this was a one night getaway. I can only imagine this place in the summer. More...

My Husband and I wanted to take a long weekend getaway for our 5 year anniversary and for my birthday.  I did a lot of research about where to stay at the Finger Lakes and presented the options to my husband; he chose The Inn.  We could not have been more pleased with our selection.  We arrived on Friday and the staff was overwhelmingly friendly.  We had a few cocktails at the bar and Cheyanne could not have been more pleasant and accommodating.  We then had dinner at the restaurant and the food and the service was outstanding-we were even treated with complimentary champagne for our anniversary!  After dinner we sat by a fire out on the patio with some wine and met some other guests who were just as pleased as we were with the accommodations.  We ended up on that patio every night of our stay meeting new people and just relaxing.  We stayed in the Edgewood house room 85; the view was astounding and we could not get enough of it.  We had brunch at the restaurant on Sunday and again it was phenomenal.  Later that day we hiked the falls which are literally a pathway away and beautiful!!  We ran into Gigi (manager) quite a few times during our stay and it is very apparent that she really makes every effort to ensure that all of the guests are pleased and well taken care of!  It was such a great weekend and we can not wait to return next year and possibly make this trip a yearly tradition!

We regretfully were only able to spend one night at the inn on our road trip. It is a beautiful inn with a great staff and friendly owner. If we are ever in the area again, we will definitely return. More...

Our family needed emergency vacation housing. Gigi and the entire staff couldn't do enough for us. We spent 5 nights at the Inn. Although we were very disappointed that our vacation housing did not work out, we were extremely pleased with our accommodations and the entire staff. Thank you so very much! More...

We had a small intimate wedding with just 17 guests at the Inn. Our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony and reception, and farewell brunch were all held at the Inn. Each event was unique and allowed our guests to experience the Inn to it's fullest. We had our rehearsal dinner in the beautiful Bommer Room. Our ceremony was held outside over looking Cayuga Lake. Our cocktail reception was held on the porch and our reception dinner was held in the romantic Jones Room. Our guests stayed onsite at the Hillside House while we enjoyed the romantic rooms at the Main Inn during our stay. From the time we arrived, to the time we left the staff went out of their way to make sure our events were prefect and all of our needs were met. Thank you Heather, Chef Tom, and Gigi for making our wedding events wonderful and memorable for us!! We look forward to spending our first anniversary at the Inn next year! More...

I recently travelled to Ithaca NY and stayed at the Inn at Taughannock. Coming from Los Angeles, this was my first trip to the area and I had no expectations. Within a day I fell in love with this hotel and all the wonderful people who work here. The hotel ambience was warm and inviting, my room (the Falls Suite) was at par and as comfortable and tidy as the rooms in the Montage or Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills, but with breathtaking views of the lake. The hotel is next to a beautiful State Park, with great hiking and a breathtaking waterfall, it was a very relaxing hike.  You'll never get tired of the scenery. The hotel and restaurant service was amazing! Great chef, amazing complementary breakfast, just the dinner service at the restaurant is worth the stay there. The staff was very warm and friendly, yet professional; they make you feel right at home. I highly recommend hanging out at their fire pit in the evenings; you'll meet many interesting people. What an unexpected gem, I'll hope to return, and I will definitely want to stay at this hotel again! More...

My husband and I met some family at the Inn for a long weekend get-away from NYC and had a spectacular time! We stayed in the Edgewood, which has great views of the lake and balconies on all the (well-equipped) rooms & was quiet despite the sold out weekend. I loved the pastries at breakfast, crab cakes app & clam chowder at dinner... The scallops are amazing and the turkey dinner was delish! I managed to also try the lobster linguine, pasta bolognese, homemade chicken parm, cheese cake & an unforgettable toffee pudding cake. The staff was really helpful & had recommendations for local hikes, running trails, places to eat in Ithaca & local wineries to visit, all of which we enjoyed! We hope to be back next summer!

I came here for my friend's wedding and I was quite surprised by the quaint little villa vibe, as well as the beautiful scenery. The overall staff were helpful and polite, but the quality of the food was a bit bland and forgetful. More...

After a long day on the motorcycle we just stopped in for a little break. Manager Jeremy explained what the Inn had to offer and we decided to stay for dinner and a night in one of the "cottage" rooms.  Steaks were great and the room was too but what sets this place apart is the exceptional hospitality from all the staff.  Check this place out if your in the Finger Lakes.

We stayed here over the weekend in room 75 that is in the yellow home about 100 yards from the main property.  Our room had a view of the lake, an outdoor patio, and a Jacuzzi tub.  The king bed was super comfortable.  The room was equipped with a keuirg coffee makers, microwave, and refrigerator.  We ate at the restaurant twice for dinner and it was amazing. They had a walkway to the falls that we did the first day and we went over to the lake the second day and rented kayaks and went swimming.  We also went wine tasting to Americana and the Thirst Owl, both really close by.  Great Location, Great Staff, Clean, and very Comfortable.  We can't wait to come back!  We were already planning our next trip on our last day.

I have dined at the inn 5 times since the new owner has taken charge.  The new menu is superb.  It is a menu with many choices that will satisfy any diner.  I have ordered lobster, scallops, the Kobe burger and the Pappardelle De Castelli.  Each dish was outstanding.  The truffle fries, which comes with the burger, are stand alone.  I ordered the clam chowder before one of my meals and you are left wanting more due to its flavor.  If you are looking for a dining experience that is fabulous, you must try the Farms.

This little jewel is a best kept secret.  I almost don't want to let the secret out but if you are in this area (or even if you're not .. Go!) visit, stay at or eat at Taughannock Farms Inn. They have a new owner and new management and it's amazing. We (our family) was visiting upstate NewYork to see more of this amazing country we live in. We stayed here for the 4th of July weekend.  We happened to arrive on the evening of the great firework show hosted by the Inn and boy was that a stunner! (See photo)!! Our rooms were comfortable and the staff was amazing. Stay in room 81 if it's open because the view from the deck is breathtaking and the jacuzzi/bathtub is just what you need after a great day on the lake or a very convenient beautiful hike to see the waterfalls.  The restaurant is delicious and the chef is inspirational.  The angel hair pasta with red meat sauce is so flavorful that even if you're avoiding carbs you have to try it! (Maybe you could just order a side of sauce)! The GM Brian Simon is terrific and makes you feel like you're an old friend.  And if the man (*hollywood producer) in charge of buying and renovating this gem is around, say hello.  His effervescent energy is contagious!

My husband and I have been wanting to take a trip to the finger lakes region to check out all of the wine, beer and cheese trails that they offer.  After going on Tripadvisor we decided to book our stay with Taughannock Farms Inn.  We arrived around 1pm and since our room was ready they young lady at the front desk allowed us to check in early.   We asked her from some suggestions of the best local wineries in the area.  She was happy to provide us with her favorites and also said she would leave a map at the front desk for us. After taking a nap on the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on (we stayed in the Garden Room) we went downstairs and retrieved the map, she even circled her favorites for us.We ate at the restaurant the first night we stayed there.  The service and food were excellent as was the view from our table overlooking Cayuga Lake.  The location of the Inn was ideal for us, as we were able to visit many of the wineries located on both the Cayuga and Seneca Lakes.  Seneca Lake was only about a 20 minute drive.  The Inn itself is located on the grounds Taughannock Falls State Park State and there are different trails to hike including one that will take you up to the waterfall. We were very happy with the service, in fact one night while we were having a cocktail on the deck, the bartender arranged for the chef to prepare a cheese platter for us. We would definitely stay here again. More...

The first part of this review deals with the accommodations.  My wife and I, and another couple, stayed here over Columbus Day weekend.  We stayed at the Edgewood, not the main Inn so these comments reflect that.  They use keys, real metal keys, the kind that go into locks.  For me, that's a plus.  It can't get de-magnitized because it sat near a cell phone.  But, unlock your door, it stays unlocked until you manually re-lock it.  Gee, just like at home.  The rooms were spacious, and clean.  Great view over the lake.  Very comfortable queen bed (they also have rooms with kings).  Fridge, microwave, and coffee maker.  They have wifi, very easy to use, and apparently wired connections though I didn't use that.  Cell service is virtually nill, another plus for me.  So, accommodations, 5 stars.Now for the dining.  Our original plan was to eat in Ithaca where we had advance reservations.  But after spending the day exploring the area before check in, we thought why shlep back into town.  So we called late for a reservation and they graciously slotted us in.  They were busy, the Inn was filled.  Their setup is an interesting concept.  You buy the entree at it's price, appetizer, salad, dessert are included in that price.  I had the salad & cheese plate, a fav of mine, salad w/ blue cheese, the lamb, and cheese cake.  Sometimes I like having a complete meal like this.  This was one of those times.  It was great!  The other 3 felt the same way.  So, the dining room was full, late in the evening, but the food was cooked perfectly, the service attentive but not over-bearing.  Breakfast.  Not my favorite but still, what I should eat.  Everyone else raved about the European style fruit, light pastry, muesli, hard boiled egg, hot crepe/waffle, yogurt, juice, coffee, tea.  I want meat.  But the gals loved it and I should be eating healthy.So, if you want a place from which you can explore the finger lakes, the wineries, the creameries, the arts, and the natural beauty, I recommend Taughannock Farms.
