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!

Vacation in the Finger Lakes

  • 4 of 5

Me and my wife stayed at this lovely rental in Hector. Susan and her daughter Cathy were very nice people. The cherry trees that were right out the front door still had ripe sweet cherries to pick. The rental is small, but has what we needed for our 5 day stay. Susan helped suggest places to eat and things to do. They are perfectly located in the middle of everything. The rental was clean and very quaint. Loved our stay and we would go back when we can.

At home amongst the cherry trees

  • 4 of 5

A perfect location, just a short drive to hike the falls and to the wineries. Susan was always quick to respond to my questions and provided everything for a relaxing retreat.

Loved our vacation here.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, Susan and her daughter were very polite and a pleasure to talk with. My wife loved Susan's accent. The accommodations were perfect for us. The place was clean and ac and fan kept it nice and cool. The bed was very comfortable. We cooked breakfast most mornings and BBQ one evening with their Charcoal grill. This was our first trip to the area and I think we will definitely be back. We hit a total of 27 wineries from Friday afternoon till Tuesday, and loved it. We would highly recommend Susan's place for a cozy weekend getaway.

Quaint, Quiet, Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided to make the pilgrimage to Watkins Glen for the 6-hour race. We wanted a place to retreat to and to prepare breakfast and picnic meals for the track. Susan's suite provided us the perfect accommodation. The cherry orchard is lovely and so is the hostess. The proximity to all of the Lake Seneca vineyards and micro breweries, Finger Lakes National Forest, and Watkins Glen State Park was a nice surprise. The furnishings were very comfortable, and the kitchen has everything you need, (except baking sheets - but I am willing to bet that if you ask, Susan will quickly find you one). I only wish that I had more time with Susan and her family. Finger Lakes Wine Festival coming up -- Caledonian Farm and Lodging is a great place to stay for it. We heard Uber is in the area too, but didn't use it.
