Barrister's Bed and Breakfast

Barrister’s Bed & Breakfast has been known for having “all of the comforts of home in a historic setting" for years. Those comforts have included a comfortable bed to come home to and warm friendly service to its guests. Ken and Diane McConnell are committed to making their guests' stays at Barrister’s more enjoyable with a commitment to service and comfort. Barrister’s Bed and Breakfast is located in the historic village of Seneca Falls in Seneca County, New York. From Barristers, it’s an easy drive to Finger Lakes wineries along the Cayuga Wine Trail or the Seneca Lake Wine trail, or comfortable walk to historic sites like the Women’s Rights National Historic Park and the Women’s Hall of Fame. Built in 1860 by Attorney Charles Weed and his wife Sarah and later Attorney T.J. Yawger and his wife Harriet Weed Yawger and their daughter Grace inhabited the home. The home was designed with fine details like quarter-sawn oak paneling, carved oak mantels, graceful stained glass windows and expansive porches. When purchased in 2007, we were only the 4th family to own the property since 1860. Of the previous men in the house, four of the last five were attorneys – hence the name Barrister’s.
