About Carolyn

This property was purchased and built by my brother, Jim. He was a great builder put a lot of love into the development of the whole property. He loved to share it with others. The property is in trust for his son. We are the caretakers of his legacy.

Why Carolyn chose New York

Jim chose this property because it was in the country yet not too far from the stores, etc. There are 20 acres to roam and even a vineyard on the property.

What makes this cabin unique

This place is special. There is a peaceful feeling about the property. It is a place where one can truly relax.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just wanted to say thank you for the hospitality. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. You have quite a treasure there.

Wine Country Getaway--Jim's South Bristol Guest House
average rating of 4.970588 based on 35 reviews

Beautiful hidden gem in the Bristol Hills- but beware of the neighbors!

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely beautiful, and you can't beat the view or the property with the ponds and scenic fields. The house is a little off-putting when you arrive though- it is located inside a multi-door garage and doesn't look like a house from where you park. But inside it is clean and well cared for.

The only trouble we had was with the driveway. The instructions say to stay to the left (and there's a sign in one fork to keep you on the right road) but the driveway forks again and you may be inclined to follow it up to the house above. DO NOT. This is not the rental. This is the home of one very agitated (and possibly drunk?) woman who will scream at you if you approach her home. You've been warned.

Working with the owner was great, she is very responsive to e-mails and provides a nice touch with a Monica's pie in the refrigerator when you arrive.

We enjoyed the fire pit on the back patio both nights of our stay and enjoyed our stay immensely.

Owner's Response: The guesthouse is a hidden gem. We love the 20+ acres to explore and relax. It is a tranquil setting and all love the large patio to spend time with family and friends. Of course being a hidden gem, we are now sending guests a satellite view of the property with the way up the driveway clearly marked. We are also getting solar lit decorative wind spinners to help lead the way so that guests of guests can find their way especially when coming to visit at night. We are thankful for all suggestions our guests make to give them a great experience at The Guest House.

Family fun!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our second visit to the "Guest House" as much as our first. We spent hours at the ponds fishing. The kids enjoyed the new ping pong table. So much to do. Carolyn has added many thoughtful touches to this rental and it feels like home. We can't wait to return.

Delightful Spot

  • 5 of 5

Though a bit out of the way for many Finger Lakes attractions, the guest house was a delight both inside and out. Spacious, clean, great patio perfect for star gazing. Yes, you have to drive a bit to get anywhere (30 minutes to Hammondsport, one hour to Watkins Glen) but who cares -- the scenery along the way makes the ride a pleasure. Just delightful.

Wonderful, as usual

  • 5 of 5

I was very moved by the kids' (and dogs') joy upon arriving here again. Our family, and the kids' friends we bring with us, absolutely adore this place. The kids immediately ran for the pedal boat, followed by an hour on the trampoline. We dug into the chicken potpie, and got all the s'mores ingredients ready for the fire pit. The dogs tore up and down the hills, and even went for a ride in the pedal boat. The next morning I went out and exercised on the dock while the dogs chased after the barn swallows. Sheer joy.

Wonderful Sisters Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My two sisters and I had a fantastic weekend at this lovely guest house. The weather cooperated by being sunny and cool -- perfect for our love of hiking. We enjoyed an afternoon glass of wine around the fire pit, took a quick drive into Naples to explore a bit and did a lot of laughing. We all agreed that it was one of the most enjoyable getaways ever and are already looking forward to coming back!
