We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.....the atmosphere was very inviting and relaxing........John and Julie made sure everything was perfect........our meals were excellent and serviced so beautifully!........we will be back!
Just returned from three night stay at the Ellwanger and it was not long enough. What a beautiful estate. Rosemary is an amazing person and has decorated the entire house with beautiful taste and comfort in mind throughout. Lighting good, furniture comfortable, colors lovely and restful. Breakfast was a treat everyday and my plate always looked like a work of art and tasted wonderful. The gardens grounds are beautiful and restful addition to the lovely house. Beds comfortable and everything we needed was within reach. I have stayed at many, many B&B's and this one tops the list. We will be back this summer to see how the gardens have changed. Within talking distance of history cemetery and and park as well as restaurants.
This is a beautiful old house in Scotsville NY. The rooms are large and well kept. The stairwell (to the second floor rooms) is a bit steep and narrow so take your time accending and descending. The common rooms are spacious and comfortable. The owners don't live on site but are close enough to respond when needed. There is no on-site breakfast - instead breakfast is at the coffee shop down the road.
We arrived early at Ellwanger Estate and that was no problem for Rosemary. She greeted us early and gave us a thorough introduction to the Estate and our quarters for the next few days. The room was spacious and open and exactly as described on their website. The bed was comfortable and warm and extra blankets and pillows were available when needed. We were there when Rochester received a pretty heavy storm and knocked out the power to the Estate for over 24 hours. Rosemary sprung into action and ensured we had sufficient lights and kept warm. She also comped us the night of the storm. Totally unnecessary, but Rosemary insisted. The location of Ellwanger is very close to the hospitals, which was the reason for our stay. Rosemary also gave us some extra care by providing amenities after my surgery which went above and beyond the duties of "bed and breakfast". There were several choices for restaurants and entertainment nearby. The morning breakfasts... after having Rosemary's breakfasts you won't be hungry til the evening hours. Such delicious and well-balanced breakfasts. A great way to start each day. We highly recommend staying at the Ellwanger Estate. We stayed in the Woodland Suite and it was delightful. My husband felt that this was his best stay at a bed and breakfast ever.
Jaynee and Guy were fantastic during our stay. Our stay in the Gifford room was perfect. The room was clean and everything worked. For a historical home, everything is kept up well. All guests had breakfast together at 9am, specially prepared by the owners. They even catered to my girlfriend's food allergies. It's obvious that Jaynee and Guy truely love what they do and want their guests to have the best experience possible. The location is a short walk or drive to Canandaigua Lake and nearly every attraction in Canandaigua. I highly recommend checking out the 1840 Inn on the Main for any stay in the finger lakes!
We stayed at Morgan Samuels Inn 7 days for our honeymoon. We chose MSI because it also has an "in house" restaurant. John is an amazing chef and the meals we're top of the line! Julie is the most gracious host there is. From the minute we arrived we were welcomed and treated like family. You can look on line and see that the rooms are beautiful. We have already recommended MSI to our friends. Thanks John and Julie for a special week!!
This was our second stay at the Morgan Samuels inn. The food, atmosphere, comforts and service are all second to none. We are very blessed to have found this little piece of heaven and will return many more times!
Our stay was very relaxing and comfortable at the Morgan Samuels Inn. John was an exceptional host who is very passionate and takes great pride in providing the dining experience and inn services. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get away, short drive from downtown Geneva, waters edge, and plenty of wineries. And you should definitely inquire about the formal dinner, words do not do it justice!! Wide spread of appetizers and I've never had lamb that tasted so good, must try!!
It was a great place to stay. Very beautiful and peaceful. The owners greeted us at the door and showed us around and walked us to the room. Our room was more beautiful than the pictures online! Such a romantic setting. The hot tub was clean and spacious. The only thing we would've liked was a couple of more options to choose from for breakfast.
I booked the Ellwanger in part because it is walking distance from the nursing home my Mother is in. So glad I did. The estate is spectacular (even in winter). The building is gorgeous, Rosemary is very welcoming and accommodating. Turns out we were the only ones there that weekend (mid December) and had the run of the place. I am sad we were there i winter because the gardens look like they would be spectacular. Breakfast fast amazing.

We were made to feel welcomed the moment we arrived. The inn is beautiful and each room was decorated to perfection. We were with a group and relaxed in the parlor. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts each morning. The owners and helpers couldn't have been nicer.It truly was a wonderful experience!
We loved it here! The food was fantastic; coffee, tea, hot chocolate and other beverages available around the clock along with fruit and then baked goods in the afternoon. Rental movies available with coffee and a mini-fridge and beverages upstairs as well. The rooms were clean and the owners were very friendly. My only complaint was the bath towels were so tiny that they worked for hair but that's about it. In the scheme of everything that is so minor and I would definitely love to go back... just bring a towel from home!
Wow! What a great place! We stayed three nights in the Hubbell Room,and it was a very spacious room with a very clean bath! The breakfasts were wonderful and the hosts were so sweet as well! Enjoyed our stay and loved the area! Thanks for such a wonderful stay! This bed and breakfast lacks nothing.Too many amenities to mention! The cookies I will mention, they were awesome everyday¿¿
Jaynee and Guy were wonderful hosts at 1840 Inn on the Main. Everything about our two night stay was phenomenal. Our room was so comfortable, so beautiful, and absolutely immaculately clean. Breakfast each morning was huge and delicious, and the constant display of delectable desserts and coffee was so homey! We will absolutely stay here again when we visit Canandaigua. Thanks so much!!
What a delightful find in Canandaigua. The innkeepers could not be more accommodating. The rooms are beautifully decorated and our bed was very comfortable. The breakfast was outstanding. Will definitely return.
A beautiful old home with nicely decorated rooms (we snooped in the other rooms while they we vacant) Our room, the Burrill Suite, was a two room suite with a living room , a very comfortable place to sit and plan your activities. Jaynee and Guy were very helpful suggesting places to eat or visit, in fact Jaynee made a couple of reservations for us.The breakfasts were delicious and service great.
Came here for my birthday with my wife. Everything was amazing. Walking distance to the town. The rooms were very nice and the staff is great. Very welcoming, have great recommendations about the surrounding area and make delicious meals! We will definitely be back! - Kelli and Pete
My cousin and I stayed in the Victorian Suite at the Ellwanger Estate for two nights September 19 and 20th 2016. We loved our stay! The Estate is beautiful as are the surrounding gardens. Our host Rosemary was extremely helpful and friendly. The gourmet breakfasts were wonderful and extensive. There were also snacks like cookies and fruit out all day. The mansion is so historic and lovely. Our room was large and comfortable. We would love to visit again, and highly recommend this Inn.
