Image of 3 sourdough breads - rye, cinnamon raisin and multigrain

The two photos above show five of our most popular breads.   The top photo includes five-grain (“birdseed”) bread and challah bread.   The bottom photo includes sourdough rye bread (foreground), sourdough cinnamon-raisin bread, and sourdough multi-grain bread.   All of these breads are home-made by Mary, and are served on various days for breakfast here at The Pearl of Seneca Lake.




Baking has been a passion for Mary for many years, and to her delight, this passion is now being channeled with the bread, scones, cookies and other desserts she makes for our Seneca Lake bed and breakfast. Gluten-free foods are her new specialty.

Mary is continually working with new bread recipes for our guests. The photo above shows our challah and whole wheat breads.

The Pearl of Seneca Lake Bed and Breakfast is renowned for its homemade breakfast foods and our bottomless cookie jar.

Breakfast is served family style, with the option of eating privately, either in the guests’ rooms or on our lakeside deck. Breakfast is served between 8:30 and 10:00 AM (or at other times previously arranged). Many guests comment that the servings are generous enough that they can skip lunch or have a late lunch. A typical breakfast starts off with orange and cranberry/raspberry juice, fruit cup, fresh-made applesauce, melons, strawberry/rhubarb, depending on what is in season locally. Hot-from-the-oven scones are available while the made-to-order entrée is being prepared. The entrée may include eggs to order, pancakes, waffles, quiche, crepes, and frittatas, accompanied by sausage, ham, bacon or turkey-sausage hash. Homemade white and whole-wheat toast is served daily. Gluten-free baked items can easily be made upon request. We also strive to accommodate any special dietary requirements, like vegetarian, lactose intolerant, gluten-free and low fat / low cholesterol.

Our beverage center is available 24 hours a day and includes an individual-serving coffee maker with a huge assortment of regular and decaf flavors. There is also a variety of loose-leaf teas as well as traditional tea bags and cocoa. Accompanying the hot beverages are our homemade cookies. Cold water and sodas are available in the refrigerators in each guest room. Popcorn is available in each room and can be made in the in-room microwave.
