Everything went very smoothly with our stay at Kevin and Mary's! Their home is a charming historic house with a large front yard that they use to grow plants and food, and the room is a lovely simple and clean design, with slightly low ceilings (common in this time period house) and the bathroom is right next to the bedroom for added convenience. The hosts weren't able to be home when we arrived, but they communicated that early and left very clear, easy instructions. Would definitely recommend and would stay again if in the area!

Our stay at Kevin's and Mary's was warm & comfortable. Communication and check-in was easy, the room was tastefully decorated (and private - it even had a lock!) and, even though the bathroom is "shared", we felt as though we had it to ourselves. My travel companion even commented that, "it's like we're staying with friends" (in a good way!). They also provided a binder full of local tips. I highly recommend this accommodation for its comfort, location and affordability.

The room was exactly as shown in pictures. Despite the site listing a shared bathroom it felt like it was our own as we never encountered anyone else using it. The second room Kevin and Mary rents also has its own bathroom. We only met Kevin, as Mary was working, by he was kind, accommodating and communicative. At the price point this gorgeous house with old charm was rented for, it is the best deal in town.

This is a great location; you can walk to everything: downtown, the lake, the colleges, Wegmans/shopping, the hospital. Rooms are comfortable, clean, and well appointed, and Kevin and Mary are delightful. There's really no reason to stay anywhere else!

Close to downtown, quiet, beautiful house! Room was great and space was very private even though it states shared bathroom. Would definitely stay again!

Comfortable and relaxing stay at Kevin and Mary's place. Geneva is the best. Great restaurants, enjoy the farmers market and the lake is absolutely beautiful

Mary and Kevin operate Flying Whale Studios, creating fine art photography and graphic design, out of our home. We've enjoyed the hospitality of our Airbnb hosts whenever we travel for art shows or to find new material -- a comfort to our wallets and our psyches. It's an experience we want to share!

When we're not traveling ourselves, we fill our days tending our half-acre edible landscape, growing and preserving much of our own food. Along with our cats, Franki and Molly, we look forward to welcoming you to Flying Whale Landing!
