Wonderful wedding weekend
Submitted: December 7, 2010
Stayed: September 2010
We stayed here for several days in September for our son's wedding. Since we are from Ohio, we had many out-of-town guests coming and we shared Bag End with another family and several friends and relatives. It was much nicer being together rather than having everyone in separate rooms at a hotel. Bag End, itself, was fabulous, both inside and out! The barn/house has quite an interesting and unique layout, with spacious areas and little nooks and crannies. The decor was lovely. We were a little nervous about having so many nice antiques around, since we had little kids with us as well as large adults, but everything was sturdy enough and quite homey. The only difficulty was trying to get the water to stay at the right temperature when you took a shower. And also, the water has an unpleasant sulphur smell. But the owners took great care to leave bottled drinking water in each bathroom. If you have little kids be sure to tell the owners, and they will provide a protective cover for the open space in the floor of one of the upstairs rooms. (It's part of the original barn--you have to see it to know what I mean.) On Sunday we held a pot-wedding brunch for all of the out-of-town guests and the wedding party, and Bag End was the PERFECT place for such an event. The kitchen was fully equipped for all sorts of cooking and entertaining, and the living/dining areas are so spacious that the house can absorb many guests easily. You can also spill out into the yard and onto a darling patio that was full of lavender cleome in full bloom. Bag End will be part of our wedding memories for years to come. Thank you.

Owner's Response: We love Cazenovia and are so pleased to offer Bag End, our "labor of love, as a special new family-friendly resource for kindred spirits visiting Cazenovia. During the winter of 2010-2011, we are installing a state-of-the-art new water treatment system in response to feedback from our guests. This system will not only remove the sulphur odor, but will soften the well water, so as to permit us also to install 2 new on-demand water heaters, as well as a new high-capacity washer-dryer combination, so as to accomodate family use.
