Marcus was a most gracious and accommodating host. He made a terrific omelette, a little bit earlier than usual for me, so that I could get to the track on time. The room was comfortable and a nice size with a firm (but not overly so) mattress. Great views of the lake from the porch and from the breakfast nook. Would definitely return.

Wonderful Old Summer Residence

We enjoyed staying overnight at the Idlewilde Inn. The hosts were wonderful in every respect. The room and private bathroom were clean, comfortable and had wonderful original period character. The hosts were very nice and attentive when needed. Breakfast was excellent- stuffed french toast, choice of Quiche, sausage, fruit, the host's spaghetti pancake, and unlimited coffee! The house is a late 19th century shingle style home high up on a hill overlooking Seneca Lake with spectacular views, even in winter. There are a number of comfortable sitting areas in original rooms and a long covered summer porch overlooking the lawns and the lake. The owners have recently acquired the inn and have made many improvements with plans for more. We will definitely return.
