I spent a very pleasant weekend staying at Don and Nancy's B&B in June 2014. Their place is a charming old house (apparently the oldest house in Rochester) that they've renovated beautifully. There's a light-filled sunroom and a cute backyard with a pool and hot tub (which unfortunately Don was painting while I was there, so no lounging by the pool for me), and a little pond. My room was the "Lexi", which is on the small side, but cute & comfortable. There are TVs all over the place, which was great for watching the World Cup, which had just started when I was there.
Don and Nancy were very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. They actually came into Detroit to pick me up and had their helper Mark drive me back to the Detroit airport at the end of my stay (there's an additional charge for this service but it's a deal compared to taxi or limo rates). I had one of those inevitable travel mishaps my first night--I lost a contact lens down the bathroom sink--and Don happily got out his tools and we were able to retrieve it from the trap.
The property is a 20-minute walk to the main street of downtown Rochester, along with a great creekside trail that you can use for walking, jogging, or using one of Don and Nancy's bikes.
If you're going to be in the area and are looking for something more personal, friendly, and unique, I highly recommend the Rochester Carriage House!
