Overlooking the village of Groton, in New York's Finger Lakes region, stands the Benn Conger Inn. Originally built in 1921 as a private home for Benn Conger, popular state senator, it became a safe haven for the infamous bootlegger and numbers racketeer Dutch Schultz.
The Colonial Revival architecture of the Inn is complimented by a charming Victorian "cottage" located next door. Renovated in 2001, it increases the total number of guest rooms to nine, adding another dimension to the Inn as a destination experience.
We are located just 15 minutes from Ithaca, NY or 35 minutes from Syracuse, NY. The inn is the perfect headquarters from which to explore the beauty of the area: Hiking, biking, horse-back riding, golfing, tennis, crosscountry and alpine skiing, hunting, fishing, water sports, wine-tasting, antiquing and a variety of other activities.
Whether for business or pleasure, corporate retreat, wedding reception, or romantic getaway, we look forward to making your stay as memorable as possible.
