The innkeeper Heather is terrific. Went this past weekend to visit friends in the area. She was very accommodating to my somewhat flexible schedule. Manny's Spanish omelet this morning was amazing (along with the banana bread and the French toast the day before). Eggs, melt in your mouth potatoes, chorizo, peppers, onions, yum! The room was very pretty, roomy and...

Thank you for the wonderful review of our Inn. We enjoyed meeting all of our guests this weekend, and look forward to your return. After 9 years with us, Heather is the heart beat of the Inn - and loved by all, (especially Manny and I).

It was a beautiful house in a very nice city. Rochester is a beautiful city with nice people. The innkeeper Heather was very sweet and helpful. The breakfast was amazing! She made crepes and broiled pineapple. Our room was charming. The king bed was comfy. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful, so very clean. Great breakfast. But the bed was old and uncomfortable. The room was on the small side, but the bathroom was very nicely appointed. The house! It is a gem. A bit too expensive!

Thank you for the feedback. Unfortunately, as hard as we try, no 2 bodies react the same to mattresses the same. It actually is not old - all the beds are all fairly new, but it is a bit firmer than some of the others for those that need a firm mattress. I am sorry if it diminished your stay....

The breakfast was wonderful.Staff is very attentive and friendly. We love our stays at this B&B. They did a wonderful job of renovating this old house into a B&B and keeping with the original architecture. It is an old house with old house issues, but that just adds to its character.

Thank you for the nice words - there are quirks that only an old house (C1896) has. It truly has a lot of character for sure! Hope to see you again soon Tonia.

This is the best bed-and-breakfast experience I have ever had! My family had a reunion in Rochester recently, and we all stayed at the Edward Harris House. On other occasions we have stayed at their cottages on Long Pond or the Genesee River. Susan and Manny greeted us with incredible hospitality on the evening of our arrival, making us feel...

Spent 4 nights here over MLK Jr weekend in 2017 for a family reunion. Susan and Manny were over-the-top accommodating and welcoming - affording our family an unsurpassed family reunion experience that would not have been possible without their hospitality. The house itself is spacious, clean, and anticipates every need (tea, cookies, books, magazines all at the ready). Each room...

My family has been choosing the Edward Harris House for lodging for many years. I grew up in a large family in Rochester, and we stay at the Edward Harris House or the River Cottage or Pond Cottage at least once or twice per year - pretty much every time we can. The inn itself is spacious, stunning and historic,...

The Edward Harris House in Rochester is a very beautiful Victorian Bed and Breakfast. I was delighted with its elegance and comfort. I also appreciated its location. It is quite close the the Eastman House and also Rochester's art museum. It is within walking distance of the Park Avenue shopping and dining area, which has a lot of elegance and...

The location, architecture, furnishings and cleanliness of this Inn is superior. The rooms are large and well fitted out. The cold and hot breakfast was delicious, including choice of ingredients in a 1-2-3 egg omelette, fresh fruit and a baked flan. The hosts were friendly and very accommodating.
