My husband and I have stayed at Esperanza Mansion twice. The first time we stayed in the Diamond Room, which has a beautiful view of the lake. The second time we stayed in the Pinot Noir Room, which is on the second floor in the back of the hotel. I would recommend the Diamond room as it is in the front, has the best view and does not connect to another room. (The Pinot Noir connects to the room next door and we could hear our neighbors clearly)
As for the restaurant, we only ate lunch there on the patio. The food was good and the patio view of the lake was gorgeous.
I have never stayed in the smaller rooms located next to the mansion, but they looked okay. One thing to note, this is your typical bed and breakfast. While the rooms were very clean, they are not fancy sheets or bedding. It is an older quilt and dated, but lovely, era furnishings. Our rooms both had four post beds and beautiful armoires.
The staff is always very welcoming and kind as well.
As for things to do, I definitely recommend a day trip to Hammondsport. It's a great little town right on the lake. You can park and walk down and sit at the lake as well. There are cute shops, a nice bistro and some local bars as well.
