1840 Inn on the Main Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 15 Canandaigua B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 September 2008

We stayed at this outstanding B&B for four nights and three days. I can't say enough wonderful things about this Inn and our accommations.

This Victorian Inn is just everything you will need it to be. Our room was outstanding in every way. The Inn and our room was spacious, impeccably clean and elegantly decorated.

The Innkeeper's attention to detail was outstanding down to the yummie cookies and treats left out for us for each day and night. The breakfasts are to die for.

The Inn is very well run. The Innkeepers are professional, hospitable, and will do everything to make your stay enjoyable.
Don't hesitate to book a stay at this B&B. You won't be sorry. We will feel lucky to go back there.

Everything about our stay at the Inn on the Main was wonderful, most notably the friendly and reliable service provided by the innkeepers. My favorite aspects of the stay were the breakfasts and the incredible service. The cooking and baking was the best we've had at any B&B. The breakfast was prepared precisely at 9 am and not made buffet style so you are served hot/fresh food when you sit down.

If you decide to visit the Finger Lakes without a general game plan there is no need to worry. You can go completely unprepared and the in-keepers can help. They are very helpful and informative and have an abundance of information ready for you in case you decide to wing it (which is what we did to an extent) They will also gladly book your reservations for you at any restaurant or winery in the area.

The Inn is very close to the lake (walking distance 20 minutes, driving 5 minutes or less) The Inn is close to the best restaurants and just a few minutes walk from the business district. Most importantly you are a few blocks from the beautiful Sonnenberg Gardens and Mansion. We recommend taking a walk from the B&B (about 10 minutes) and visiting Sonnenberg.

Our room was beautiful and impeccably clean. Cleanliness is another positive of the Inn. We had the room with the fireplace and hot tub. The bed was really comfortable too! We highly recommend this room!!

A kitchen area located right outside your door in the common area is kept stocked with assorted teas, milk, soda, bottled water and candies. Coffee is made right outside your door every morning in this same kitchen area. The Inn also provides magazines, books, playing cards and a collection of DVD movies and daily afternoon baked snacks (i.e.: brownies/cookies).

So, to recap, cleanliness, great breakfasts, wonderful and friendly services and location are the positives. No negatives to report. If I were forced to choose my favorite aspect of my stay it would be the breakfasts!! Simply amazing. I can’t think of a reason not to stay at the Inn On The Main the next time my wife and I visit the Finger Lakes.
