“A Step Back in Time”
Reviewed 29 July 2010

The beautifully restored B&B is truly a step back into the quieter days of yesteryear.
Immaculate rooms and common areas. Lovely gardens, Intimate porches, delicious breakfasts...Owners are very friendly and love to share tips about the area.
Definitely a jewel on Main Street.

We stayed in the "Inn Suite" which has upstairs master bed and bath, with a downstairs kitchen, dining area, living room and bedroom. TV up and downstairs. Also pull out couch. Kitchen came stocked with breakfast goodies (eggs, bacon, cereal, fruit, milk, bread, bagels, butter, etc.)

Note: only one bathroom upstairs if you are handicapped or elderly.

We recently stayed at 1840 Inn on the Main while passing through Canandaigua, NY. We made the reservations on line. Upon arrival, we were so pleasantly surprised by the exterior of the building. It is a beautifully restored home. When entering the home, we were extremely impressed by the interior as well. The owners, Jaynee and Guy Straw have lovingly restored each room in the house/inn. Our room was lovely and every room we looked in was lovely, as well. Guy was only too happy to answer any questions about the area, restaurant recommendations, etc. The next morning, Jaynee served the most wonderful, delicious breakfast. I don't think we ate the rest of the day! We have nothing but praise for this charming Inn and since we've stayed at numerous bed and breakfasts for many years, we can say that this is one of the very best!

Guy and Jaynee know how to make their guests comfortable. From the moment Guy greeted us to the last day enjoying the awesome breakfast we knew they were the perfect couple to run an Inn. Our room was squeaky clean, the linens upgraded, the coffee, tea and water and oh yes the chocolates and cookies available during the day made the "extras" perfect. We found this Inn on line and chanced it for our three night stay in the Finger Lakes...well it was the right chance because our stay was one of our memorable experiences of our visit...thank you Guy and Jaynee for doing it Right!!!

Guy and Jaynee Straw (the innkeepers) did a fabulous job of renovating this home. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by Guy and given tour and information for our stay.
Their attention to detail both in the decor and service is excellent. The breakfast cuisine
was beautifully presented, a treat to the palate with unique ingredients. The 3 days we
spent at the Inn were truly delightful.

Every detail of your stay is expertly attended. Guy and Jaynee have made hosting an art form. As you look around your accomodations - both in your room and in the common areas - you see detail after detail of things that add beauty, comfort, and convenience. The rooms are immaculately clean, well-appointed, and quiet. Every effort is extended to you for your comfort, yet they do it without hounding you - they are very respectful of guests' privacy while still being so genuinely warm and welcoming that it's like staying with good friends. And then there's the breakfast. We've stayed a total of three nights now, over two visits, and each meal has been a gourmet spectacle. The food is so beautiful and delicious that it almost feels sinful to eat it. We had the world's best eggs benedict one morning that I will probably still taste 30 years from now. The best part of it all, though, is that it's very reasonably priced for being among the best B&B's in all the Finger Lakes. I could not make even one criticism of this establishment - it is perfect. Lastly, the professionalism and dedication of the hosts: despite a couple of challenging and emotional events in their lives, Guy and Jaynee refused to relax their obviously high standards for even a minute, and stayed strong and unified and cheerful. If you are going to stay in the Finger Lakes region, you can do no better than the Inn on the Main.

Myself, my husband, and another couple decided to go to the fingerlakes for some relaxation, social time and, of course, wine tasting. However, we all wanted to stay in a sort of communal environment where we could also have our own privacy (i.e. separate rooms). After searching for hotels with two-bedroom suites, I finally came across this B&B. We stayed in the Inn's Suite, a sort of townhouse in the back of the inn. It is FABULOUS! Two bedrooms, one bathroom, a pull out couch, a kitchen, dining room, and living room - and all for an incredibly low price. It is centrally-located, immaculately clean, and quiet. Of course, in addition to the two separate rooms, we also appreciated the communal areas and spent the evening drinking wine and playing board games. In the morning, we were provided with breakfast, which was also wonderful. The owners are friendly and approachable, and they were always more than happy to answer our questions. I have already recommended this place to several of our friends. If we were to return, we would absolutely come back here.
