Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House on the historic Jephson estate is a beautifully restored, nicely appointed, peaceful place to stay. The beds are comfy, the great big kitchen is the perfect place for family gatherings, and the surroundings are gorgeous. It's seconds away from Cazenovia village where there are nice restaurants and shopping. The owner, Linda, is a kind and gracious host. Would love to stay there again.

I grew up in Cazenovia and always admired the Jephson Estate - in fact, we used to toboggan on their hill! So it was a complete delight to meet the current owner, and stay in the lovely carriage house. Very peaceful and a real step back in time. Comfortable, spacious and an overall great place to stay. Thank you!

Wonderful stay at carriage house along Casanovia lake with our family. We attended the graduation of our daughter from Cornell vet school. The house is on the second floor overlooking beautiful garden and lake. The big kitchen allowed for lots of nice family time! A great stay!
