Welcome to John Morris Manor

Tony Masullo and John Personius John Morris Manor

We ((Tony standing (over a decade ago); John sitting (ditto); Moby in lap (dead), Bender on chair arm (still kicking); Bear (absent on day photo taken)) began welcoming guests into our home May 2003 after transplanting ourselves from NYC. We are now long-in-tooth, married (10/19/13), cranky sometimes, and the house has begun to look a bit worn and tattered, but is still very comfortable and clean. If you’re looking for “elegant”, “4-star service” or  “a romantic get- away”, we’re not it. We’re more a family-style setup, with cute country bedrooms (nothing fancy), parlors with Cable TV and Wi-Fi. There are dogs wandering about, folks hanging out on the porches or by the pool in summer, and everyone shares breakfasts together. Guests with rooms in the back of the house have to pass through the den where we hang out and are often self-conscious at first, but quickly adjust to the routine. We find it an opportunity to chat about the day’s activities and share any updates on the B&B schedule.

We’ve been doing this a long time now, so we’ve accumulated a wealth of information and resources on what to see and do in the Seneca Falls area. We enjoy offering suggestions to help optimize our guests’ experience of the Finger Lakes.  Whether it be hiking, biking, kayaking, historical exploration, antiquing, outlet shopping, bird watching, wine, cheese or spirit tasting, we’ve got it all, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, too!

Tony continues to enjoy cooking and baking and breakfasts are a treat. John loves the gardening, taking care of the pool, and sharing secrets of the Finger Lakes

We are situated atop a secluded hill on 5.7 acres of spectacular natural beauty and are on scenic State Route 89 and the Cayuga Lake Wine Trail. It is three miles to the center of Seneca Falls, and a quarter mile south to the New York Chiropractic College.

Our Bed and Breakfast is open to guests year round. The home features five large, comfortably furnished guest bedrooms, three with private baths and two with a shared bath. The majority of the common areas on the first floor are open to guests, including two parlors, the dining room, and a den with a fireplace. During the summer guests may relax by the full-sized, in-ground swimming pool. Two bedrooms in the west wing are designated as “pet friendly” for dogs and their well-behaved owners.
