“Weekend getaway”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

Chose this home for our annual weekend getaway with friends. There were 8 of us and we were treated like royalty; couldn't have asked for more. The rooms were large, comfortable & clean. Each with its own private bath. The food was great. We chose to do the wine tour and Jaynee & Guy set it up for us...what a terrific day...cold and damp but good wine and beer to chase the blues away. Definitely recommend this the Inn on the Main to anyone wanting a change from your typical hotel/ motel vacation. I hope Guy enjoyed the micro beer I left him!

Room Tip: Can't go wrong with any of the rooms you choose.

A superior bed and breakfast experience. We have had the good fortune to stay in many bed and breakfasts and I would not hesitate to say that Inn on the Main was head and shoulders above most. The hosts were very gracious while not being intrusive.
We stayed at the Inn on the Main in October 2013 for our annual couples getaway. There are four couples- we've been going away for an October weekend every year for over 20 years. We have only revisited a previous destination once or twice. We will definitely revisit the Inn on the Main.
The breakfasts were also exceptional and no small detail went overlooked for our comfort (stocked mini-fridge and coffee maker just outside of our room, fresh home made cookies available for snacking and lots to see and do.

Sincerely,
Laura Josephson

This Inn is fantastic from the moment you pull in and enter the beautiful property. The bedrooms are well maintained and the breakfasts something else. A good location for touring the finger lakes with access to some nice dining in the town.

The Inn on the Main is by far, the most exquisite bed and breakfast I have stayed at. My quest was to find a B and B with both a fireplace and a jacuzzi. This B and B delivered and surpassed my expectations!

We will be back!

Fabulous B&B - one of the best we've ever stayed in. Jaynee and Guy are very helpful in every way - from restaurant recommendations to meeting our every need at the B&B. Highly recommend! We go out of our way to stay here rather than stay at a hotel near the highway.

While not inexpensive, this B & B is worth every penny. This is an incredible old house with quaint decor and large rooms with high ceilings. The rooms were spotless, quiet and have ensuite washrooms. We were a group of four couples and I'm sure we were noisy at times but outside of our area there was very little sound and no complaints from the hosts or other guests. The hosts seemed to be genuinely nice people who attempted to take care of our every need.

Breakfast was served at 9 AM and did not allow for any selection of foods. What was served was hot, tasty and filling. Fussy or large eaters may not be entirely happy in the lack of selection but our group was very satisfied and I'm sure the hosts would do whatever they could to accomodate if asked.

All in all a great experience.

Room Tip: Ask about the winery tour that the hosts set up for us. You will be picked up at the B & B, tak...

I would my it known to the United States if I could that Inn on the Main is a wonderful place to be. Jaynee and Guy do a wonderful job and so do their staff. You will not forget your stay once you stay here. I make it a tradition to come hear every November and I never want to leave...Breakfast, the room, service, beautiful, happy and comfortable. You will find it all here.
