Bicycles and a Violin Played a Large Part For Seven Friends at 1922 Starkey House Bed & Breakfast Inn.

This is the best Finger Lakes location for bicyclists, just twelve miles north of Watkins Glen along captivating Seneca Lake.

There could not a better spot to call home for a long weekend, than the
1922 Starkey House for seven college friends (SUNY New Paltz circa 1976).

 I have not seen a more physically fit, fun-loving group in a long time. They certainly know how to enjoy life. 


Their three day visit consisted of bike rides down to the Glenora Falls, the surprise that I mentioned they would find. And, a twelve mile trek down to Watkins to hike the steps at the State Park, and then bike all the way back to Starkey House! They enjoyed jumping in Seneca for a brisk swim at the end of Starkey Point and took in some wineries and restaurants. And, oh yes . . . Barbara practiced her violin (fiddling) preparing for a contra dance concert she would be performing at later in the week, just lovely!

"What a wonderful stay. Seven of us thoroughly enjoyed Cathy's hospitality . . Our room was comfortable, quiet 
and a nice cool breeze made for nice sleeping . . ."
