Dean Lane is a 3 generation family farm, run by myself, Michael (the chef) and my lovely wife, Lisa (our hospitality guru).

Our family loves and cherishes the New York Finger Lakes region, and want others to experience its wonder. There are numerous wineries, breweries, state parks, and historical museums to visit. Staying with us provides access to all the Finger Lakes has to offer, in a quiet secluded location. Start your day off right with a farm fresh, homemade breakfast and head out to visit your favorite attractions — or stay all day with us to relax and recharge.  

Lisa runs the daily operations. Unafraid of hard work, she worked in the hospitality industry while putting herself through school. At the farm, her role shifts to baker, receptionist, and mother of our 2 young children, Cora and David. Be sure to say hi to the kids if you can slow them down long enough to do so.  

As a 25+ year professional chef and culinary-graduate of Cornell’s Hotel School, I know the importance of a great dining experience. Included with your reservation is a breakfast second to none. We provide many options, made to order, for your enjoyment. Simply come to the main dining room between 8am and 9am and join us for a great start to the day. Looking to take lunch with you for your daily adventure- let us know in advance and the delicious eats continue!


the region

For five generations, this region has been our home. From the wineries to the winding back roads, the breweries to the backpacking trails, we’ve experienced all but a few. And we’d love for you to do the same. Here’s a list of our favorite local haunts, including a couple of my own. If you’d ever like to pick our brains about what else the Finger Lakes Region has to offer, we welcome the opportunity.
