Our History...

The Van Cleef Homestead, a two-story clapboard structure in the Federal style, was built in 1825 by the first permanent settler of the village of Seneca Falls, Lawrence VanCleef.

The home later became the residence of Wilhemus Mynderse, who is credited as being principally responsible for the settlement and growth of the Village of Seneca Falls.

In 1837, the house was transferred to Frederick Swaby, another of the Village's original industrialists, whose family then occupied the house for nearly 100 years.

...and Charm

Opening in 1996 as a Bed and Breakfast by Joice and David Fredenburg, who began the VanCleef’s restoration. The Van Cleef Homestead was purchased by its present owners, Carol and Brent Gibbs, in 2006, to continue the home’s restoration and maintain the warm and friendly hospitality the inn has become known for.

The Van Cleef Homestead features three large comfortable bedrooms, all with private baths.

We are a NON-SMOKING facility.

A full breakfast is served family style in our formal dining room.
