The perfect weekend getaway!! My husband and I spent a long weekend here in early October celebrating our anniversary. We were warmly welcomed by Ike and Julie on Friday afternoon and were given a tour of the lovingly updated property. Our room was well appointed with a very comfortable queen-size bed and beautifully finished bathroom. We were in the Gorman suite which has a sitting room overlooking the backyard. Everything was just perfect, from the repurposed piano which now serves as the bar on the main floor of the house, to the comfortable porch accommodations, to breakfast baskets delivered to your door. They easily accommodated my gluten free dietary needs. Ike could have a side gig as a local tour guide too! He gave us great recommendations for biking and hiking activities and Julie’s advice for dining out was spot on. Did I mention the view of the Susquehanna River from the front porch?! Beautiful. We can’t wait to go back.

Beautiful home offering fabulous hospitality and an interesting back story Restored historic home that provides comfort and charm as a B&B. Overlooking the water and a close walk to everything you'd need in town, Belva Lockwood Inn is a perfect spot for a weekend getaway, celebrating a special occasion or just treating yourself to a nice stay. Julie & Ike, the owners are friendly and welcoming and we had a great conversation one evening out on the front porch. They really make you feel at home. From comfortable beds to great water pressure in the showers there are little touches throughout that show an attention to detail and design. Looking forward to returning!!

A must-stay, hidden gem on the banks of the Susquehanna River! The owners of the Belva Lockwood Inn have utterly mastered the art of hospitality. We were completely blown away at every turn of our stay! Their small town, country lifestyle, puts the big city “hospitality” to shame. By the time we checked out, I felt like they were my favorite aunt and uncle and I couldn’t wait to visit again! When I initially called to book, I was considering booking two rooms so my kids (3 & 2) would have a bed to sleep in. Ike said he’d look around and see if one of the neighbors had a couple pack n’ plays I could use so I wouldn’t have to book the extra room. No one does that unless they care about people more than they care about money!! We ended up staying in the Gorman Suite and the kids had pack n’ plays in the sitting room (which saved us a ton of money on our lodging). We felt so cared about! During our stay I had a mishap where my luggage fell over in the hallway and the handle made a gash in the paint. I was mortified. I showed them the damage and offered to pay for it. They waved it off and said it was no big deal. I tried insisting, but they wouldn’t let me pay for it. Throughout my stay they were super helpful at recommending places to visit and places to eat. They ended up recommending MJ’s Bar and Restaurant down the road. We got their chicken noodle soup, their clam chowder, and some grilled bread for dipping. It was beyond heavenly. There was love in every bite! The last night of our stay at the Inn, we told them we were going to be checking out super early the next morning and they offered to bring our breakfast early and have it in a to-go bag so we could eat it on the road. Once again, their thoughtfulness totally blew me away! I just can’t say enough good things about them. As for the house itself, its located across the street from the Susquehanna River and is absolutely gorgeous! I loved learning about it’s rich 150 year history from the booklet in our room, the pictures around the house, and the owners themselves. This was by far one of the nicest places we’ve ever stayed at! This Inn is hidden gem and a MUST-STAY if you’re traveling to or through southern New York! We give the Belva Lockwood Inn ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Excellent B&B Recently restored historic B&B with very comfortable rooms, great staff and perfect location. The Inn is quite spacious for a historic building and the bar/dining room and seating areas were very comfortable, with a great selection of drinks and snacks. The front porch has a nice view of the beautiful bend in the Susquehanna River, and it's only a block away from Owego's historic downtown. We had the choice of a picnic basket breakfast or dining at the Owego Kitchen (also owned by Julie and Ike) which is only about a block away. The food at the Owego Kitchen was excellent and we are looking forward to another stay!

Wonderful hospitality Beautiful historic Bed and Breakfast. Wonderful host. Fun picnic basket at your door every morning with large thermos of coffee. They accommodated my gluten free diet with the best GF coffee cake I’ve ever enjoyed. Belva’s story is so interesting! You must find the time to set still on the front porch and perhaps read the story of this women’s rights pioneer.

Belva Lockwood Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Belva Lockwood Inn in Owego, NY. Julie and Ike were very welcoming when I arrived and gave me a tour of the house and made sure I had everything I needed for a comfortable stay. The Tioga room was great! Charming and cozy!! I also enjoyed my breakfast the next day! It was nice to be so close to the restaurants and shops downtown. It was an easy and pleasant stroll to walk in for dinner and to see the Christmas lights in all the shops. You won’t be disappointed!

Fabulous Inn! My wife and I stayed one night at the Belva Lockwood Inn. This is a wonderfully restored old mansion in Owego NY. The owners, Ike and Julie, live on site so any concerns that come up (we had none) can be taken care of immediately. Everything about this Inn is first class from the decor all the way to the bedsheets. Lots of history to learn in this Inn named in honor of Belva Lockwood, the first woman to run for President of the United States. We drove 8 hours to get there and it was worth it. Can't say enough good things about it. Just go!

Wonderful Visit Last night we stayed here with friends as our home base for a concert in Ithaca. Ike and Joan (the owners) have done a beautiful job restoring this home! Modern infrastructure has been seamlessly integrated into the historic architecture, so you can experience the historic atmosphere with the comforts of home. The bar is a creatively repurposed piano, and the thoughtful design detailing is worth the trip alone. When we got back from the concert, there was a charcuterie board waiting for us at the bar with the most amazing cheeses. The front porch is the perfect place for a great glass of wine, and to catch up with friends. Our group had most of the rooms and you couldn't ask for a better venue to catch up. The breakfast baskets are a wonderful touch. I can't say enough about the hospitality here. It's great to see people like Ike and Joan work so hard to create great experiences for others. If you get the chance, check this place out, trust me you'll thoroughly enjoy yourself!!
