Reviewed 31 May 2011

Our stay at the Chalet was even better than expected! The owners were extremely hospitable, and felt like friends rather than inn-keepers. We stayed in the Balcony Suite, which was charming and tidy. The best part was the bathroom with a huge soaking tub, towel warmer and glass fireplace that was also shared by the bedroom.

Not only did we have a wonderful place to sleep, but the most fabulous 3-course breakfast in the morning. They are self-taught cooks whose meals will surpass anyone's expectations. We would love to go back and will recommend it to everyone we know!

I found the Chalet when looking for a B&B as part of a 40th birthday weekend for my wife. It seemed like the perfect combination. My wife has been dropping anvil-sized hints about going to a bed and breakfast, but old Victorian homes and textured wallpaper just weren't calling to me. The rugged look of the log cabin Chalet really caught my eye. Set in the woods, overlooking a pond, it was a quiet, tranquil place, and would be beautiful in any season. We had reserved the Woodsview room, but a glitch with a Travelocity.com reservation caused a double-booking, so we were upgraded to the Lee Suite instead. I can assure you that the room was fantastic. It was spacious, well-appointed, and though the walls were log, it was quite elegant and very romantic. We had a wonderful weekend, visiting wineries, dining at the Bristol Harbor Restaurant (less than 10 minutes away), and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Chalet. The owners, Patty and Margaret, were wonderful, always working to ensure our visit was perfect. We were greeted warmly, they were accessible and easy to talk to without being intrusive, and our every need was taken care of promptly and cheerfully. A nice dessert awaited us when we returned from dinner (warm apple pie), and we awoke to a wonderful, three-course breakfast that was a feast for the eyes and mouth. We couldn't have been happier with our stay, and we hope to return for another visit, possibly in the Fall to see the leaves. I highly recommend the Chalet of Canandaigua for anyone.

We had been researching places to stay in the area of Canandaigua, where we had been planning a ski trip to Bristol Mountain. The website for the Chalet of Canandaigua was very enticing and appealed to what we wanted for our weekend getaway. Upon arriving we were greeted by the incredibly friendly owners of the B&B, who gave us a tour of the beautiful log building. The decor and ambiance were very warm and cozy and had a five star appeal. Our suite was incredible -- king size bed, kitchenette and fireplace (our favorite) were all intact. The bathroom was also amazing, with a huge tub that was perfect for a long soak after a day of skiing. After dinner on the town, we were greeted by desserts waiting for us upon arriving back at the Chalet. Delicious! The ladies were very accommodating to me personally - I have a lot of dietary restrictions and they were able to provide me with scrumptious alternatives to what my boyfriend had. The three course breakfast was equally impressive. We especially liked the bananas foster on waffles. Overall, the Chalet was an incredible experience. It was only a 20-25 minute drive from Bristol Mountain and the perfect getaway if you are looking to get out of the city and enjoy the peace and serenity of the countryside. The owners create a very welcoming atmosphere and are obviously committed to appeasing guests` needs. We will be recommending the Chalet to all of our family and friends and hope to return!

Pattie and Margaret have far surpassed any other b&b or hotel we've stayed at......simply phenomenal! We were pampered from the second we walked in the door....dvd library, games, custom toiletries, the best sheets you will EVER sleep on, and the bathtub in the Lee Suite....you'll want to smuggle it out with you! The breakfast.....we're still so full from it! My husband wants meat pie now for Christmas morning!! Such an amazing relaxing experience..the perfect getaway, and we can't wait to come back!!!

My wife and I stayed for two nights in mid-December and didn't want to leave. Pattie and Margaret have thought of every little detail possible that makes The Chalet the best B&B we've ever stayed at. Incredible rooms, delicious breakfasts and great hostesses. Frommer's and all of the preceding Trip Advisor reviews were spot-on as this is THE PLACE to stay while in Canandaigua.

Thank you again Pattie and Margaret (and Missy) for two wonderful days at The Chalet. We're already looking forward to our next trip there.

Staying at the chalet was a perfect way to take advantage of our first night away from the kids in about 2 years. After giving all of our attention to our children for so long, we surely felt that we were finally the ones being pampered. Even the smallest details have been thought of at this 5 star home away from home. The best part is, since we lack the ability to get away for long, escaping to the Chalet was perfect since it is literally right around the corner from where we live in downtown Canandaigua.
