About the Inn

Greg and Lilly DeForest-Campbell

Meet Your Innkeepers:

Hello! We are Greg and Lilly DeForest-Campbell, and we are thrilled to announce that we are the new owner/operators of 1897 Beekman House! Here is a little bit about us by way of an introduction:
We are both sommeliers and former restaurant managers with over four decades between us of experience in the hospitality industry. We met in New York City, but Lilly is originally from the Finger Lakes region, and it has long been a dream of ours to move back to the area and run a bed and breakfast right in the middle of what we consider to be the finest wine region in the eastern United States. When we first set eyes on 1897 Beekman House, we instantly fell in love. One year and lots of hard work later, we are ready to resume operations. This is a dream come true for us, and we cannot wait to continue the tradition of excellent service and gracious hospitality that was established by Chuck and Gerry France!
We will continue to offer guided wine tours, as well as gourmet, three-course breakfasts, and of course, luxurious accommodations in our five gorgeous rooms. Lilly will be baking fresh, delicious pastries, and Greg will be providing the breakfast main courses and delectable, homemade bread. Some food offerings may change, but we promise they will meet the high standards you have come to expect at 1897 Beekman House. If you are a returning guest with a favorite breakfast, Chef Chuck has been kind enough to share many of his best-loved recipes, so let us know and we will be happy to prepare it during your stay.
1897 Beekman House is reopening for business with expanded days of operation starting on Wednesday, March 24th. Please feel free to send us a message with any questions or comments, or contact us by phone at 1897 Beekman House’s new telephone number: (315) 412-2697, or at beekmanhouse1897@gmail.com. We look forward to meeting you soon!
