Fodor's Expert Review Esperanza Mansion
3456 Rte. 54A, Bluff Point, New York, 14478, USA
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
The stately 1838 Greek Revival mansion sits on a hill overlooking Keuka Lake, 16 mi north of Hammondsport. Some guest rooms are in the mansion, but most are in the separate two-story inn building. Rooms may have four-poster and sleigh beds, armoires, and decorative fireplaces. Whitewashed furniture and quilted bedspreads give the inn a more casual cottage feel. Linger over a cocktail on the outdoor terrace and drink in the lake, surrounding hills, and farms.
