The Pearl of Seneca Lake Bed and Breakfast is located on the west side of Seneca Lake in the heart of New York State’s Finger Lakes region. It was purpose-built in 2005 as a bed and breakfast. It has four guest rooms, each with lake view, a private bath, satellite TV, Wi-Fi, a refrigerator stocked with water and soda, and a microwave with popcorn. Three of the rooms have private entrances from our lakeside decks, and the Southview Room has a private covered balcony. A spacious living room with a gas fireplace is provided for guest use, where guests often gather for socializing, watching TV and playing card and board games. The property is comprised of 13.7 acres, with 385-foot lake frontage. It includes an 80-foot dock with a canoe and rowboat for guest use. Overlooking the lake is a pavilion with a large picnic table, and nearby is a fire pit with wood provided for our guests. The property is secluded, and includes a 3000-foot nature trail with benches to enjoy the birds, wildlife and natural surroundings. We are in the middle of the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, and a short distance from the Keuka, Cayuga and Canandaigua wine trails. The Watkins Glen International Race Track is 15 miles to the south. It includes NASCAR and other major and minor races, as well as the opportunity for guests to drive their own cars around the track on weekdays. Many hiking and biking opportunities abound in the area.
Over the past several years, 35% of our reservations have been from returning guests.

We’ve just installed a new set of stairs down to the lake. It is much stronger and safer than our old stairs, and includes a 12′ x 12′ deck about 9 feet above the dock, making another scenic spot to sit and enjoy the lake. To the right is a photo of the new stairs. >
We accept all major credit cards, as well as cash, personal checks and travelers’ checks.
We were surprised and honored to be included in the fall issue of Focus Magazine, published by the New York State Hospitality and Tourism Association. It includes a recipe for our signature Raspberry and Chocloate Chip Scones. Here is a link to our page: Focus Magazine Link (The “Zoom In” tab at the bottom of the screen expands the page to make it more readable.)
We are also featured in Frommer’s New York State Guide, which has
given us an “exceptional” (3-star) rating, and has designated us as a
“special find”, which means those places only insiders know about.
Another surprise was being featured in The Finger Lakes Explorer’s Guide as “one of the best places to stay in and around west side Seneca Lake”.
