This Victorian mansion has been redone to make it a bed&breakfast. The rooms are quaint and quirky.

I would recommend this for travellers who understand and enjoy the b&b spirit where things are a little different and less standard. The owner, Stephani, greets you by name (confirming pronounciation), and is very chatty - the dinner recommendations were much appreciated. The rooms are fun, we had a portrait of Abraham Lincoln in our room and a sliding door for the toilet to minimise space used.

Overall a good stay and a good place to explore the Finger Lakes from.

Whoever heard of Waterloo NY? We stayed at a B&B called the Gridley Inn. It was so charming. Stephanie has taken time to make this historic building a warm and welcoming place. Don’t hesitate to book there

My friend and I stayed 2 nights here for a finger lakes long weekend end of Sept. Stephani was a very gracious host! The B&B itself was lovely, carefully maintained and refurbished to keep the charm of the old building, but have modern conveniences. We stayed in the Academy room (2 twin beds), very comfortable (if a little chilly, couldn't figure out the AC/Heater unit). The attached bathroom was very nice and the shower water pressure was divine! Breakfast each morning was scrumptious! Coffee and tea was hot, with a fine selection of teas (those drinking tea got their own pot of hot water!) Muffins were available as you came into the dining room and got your beverages. First morning was french toast with bacon and fresh blueberries, second morning was quiche! My traveling companion had a specific food allergy to an ingredient in the quiche and was prepared a lovely omelet that morning. Conversation flowed and Stephani treated everyone like family. She offered suggestions for dining and sightseeing, and had coupons for some wineries we visited. The location was very handy, right between Cayuga and Seneca lake at the north end of both, easy access to wine trails, Seneca Falls and Geneva. All in all it was a delightful stay and we'd stay here again!

We were here for my wife's 50th reunion. The place is beautiful.. I especially appreciated the leather sofas in the living room. I did wish for better reading light. The breakfasts were very good indeed, particularly the bacon. In the afternoon scrumptious cookies are available. Stephani is a delightful hostess. We were there for three days, but the bed was never made nor the wastebaskets emptied.

We recently stayed at the Gridley Inn in the Garden Room Suite. It was a perfect room for us, everything we needed. Very clean and comfortable. Stephanie was a great host and has put a lot of work into the home to restore it's beauty. Breakfast was good and her company at the table was most enjoyable. Lots of stories. The area is very nice, able to walk out for dinner and the coupons given to us for some wineries were much appreciated. We love the Fingerlakes area and visit a different area each time we return. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
