About Susan Barnes

Susan Barnes, Owner

Born and raised in a small village just outside of Edinburgh, Scotland where her family owned and operated a small full service hotel. Upon leaving home and many travels, Susan decided to settle in the great Finger Lakes Region in upstate New York. She chose the area because it reminds her so much of Scotland. Susan can be found picking fruit on the farm or selling gorgeous locally grown produce on the farm stand.

Cathy Barnes, Manager

Cathy has spent most of the last 20 years living in and loving upstate New York. She has completed 2 years of college for hospitality management and has recently returned to school for sustainable agriculture and food production. When she is not digging in the gardens, pruning trees or serving customers on the farm stand (or taking orders from her mum, a.k.a Susan), Cathy works at the local Cornell Cooperative Extension office assisting with adminstrative duties and marketing.

Susan Barnes purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Susan Barnes chose Seneca Lake

The family decided to settle in the Finger Lakes Region some 30 years ago because it reminded them so much of Scotland. Now, we would like to share a wee piece of Scotland with you! We truly hope you enjoy your stay in the Buchanan Suite, which is named after our clan. Take a left or right turn from the farm and we promise you will not be disappointed!

Great location for relaxing & wine tasting!

  • 5 of 5

Susan was a very welcoming host. She was accommodating when we were delayed in arriving and to the time to meet us & give us recommendations. The place is very cute & close to a delicious local diner, as well as lots of wineries and Watkins Glen State Park.

We couldn't be happier

  • 5 of 5

Susan is an incredibly gracious and respectful host. We so enjoyed our conversations with her. The cottage is down to earth, comfortable and cozy, and in a very lovely setting amid the fruit orchard. It is also perfectly situated, so close to several state parks, to the national forest, trails, wineries, and villages. A sweet getaway solo or with another.

Great Long-Weekend Getaway for Two

  • 5 of 5

The Buchanan suite, it's location, comfort and owner, Susan were wonderful! My husband and I stayed here for a much needed weekend getaway. The location was perfect for visiting some of the best wineries and breweries around Seneca Lake. The bed was comfortable, the suite was clean and perfect for two people. Susan gave us.great recommendations for places to eat. Thanks Susan! By the way, if you enjoy great red wines, visit the nearby Shalestone Vineyards. What a gem and the best red wines in the Finger Lakes!

We absolutely loved it here. Very clean. The towels and linens are so soft. It was also nice chatting with Susan. Very nice people. Right on the wine trail so it was convenient to hit up all the wineries. We would definitely stay again.

Quaint***Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My husband I enjoyed a long Easter weekend here in 2017. What a perfect little spot! We were greeted upon our arrival by Susan. She was very welcoming and gave us some great tips on local spots to enjoy. The cottage house is beautiful and perfect for one couple. The kitchen is fully equipped as is the bathroom. The mattress is extremely comfortable. The towels....I wanted to take them home, but didn't!! The cottage is immaculate. We were able to sit outside our front door at the bistro set and watch the sunset each night. We roamed the property which is a gorgeous orchard with views of the lake. There were several wineries and restaurants within 10 miles and some within a mile. The cottage was so nice to come back to after a day of hiking and wine trailing! I hope to be able to return to the Finger Lakes soon; if I do, I am staying here again! Thanks so much! - Heidi & Tom Humphries
