A Slice of Home Bed and Breakfast is located in a quiet, romantic, rural setting, 15 minutes from Ithaca and 30 minutes from Watkins Glen, in Upstate New York - perfect for a sightseeing family vacation or a romantic getaway in the Finger Lakes.
  We are centrally located to the Seneca and Cayuga Lake Wine Trails, museums, wonderful restaurants, shopping, hiking, biking and all that this area has to offer.
  We are located within walking distance of the new Hollybrook Country Club, with banquet hall. Hollybrook is a wonderful 18 hole course that is open to the public.  We even have a new driving range nearby. What a perfect location a slice of Home offers!
  We are a short distance to Cornell University and Ithaca College, Corning Museum of Glass and four New York State Parks surrounded by wineries, antique shops, and cross country skiing, hiking and bicycle trails. Our location is bicycle friendly too!
  We specialize in daily self-tour planning. We'll help you to see the sites: the best wineries, restaurants, antique shops, parks, waterfalls and hiking areas!

A Slice of Home B&B - Dining Room

We provide area maps for self-guided tours in order to help our guests see the most important sites, such as Taughannock Falls (which is higher than Niagara Falls), and Watkins Glen with its famous gorge. Enjoy Cayuga Lake and Seneca Lake Wine Trails and dine at excellent area restaurants.

For group touring the wineries, we suggest that you enjoy the service and safety of a limo tour:

The new Tioga Downs racetrack with harness racing and video gaming is a short drive from our B&B.  Open every day, racing continues until mid-September, and the casino is open all year.

We have some of the best hunting and fishing in the country.
