Reviewed 3 August 2014

We were looking for a place to stay on our motor trip traveling from Niagara Falls to Lake Placid and wanted to spend some time touring the Finger Lakes. The website for the Chalet's B & B looked inviting, and after communicating with the hosts,Patti and Margaret, we booked, hoping we would not be disappointed. We were not! Every aspect surpassed our expectations. The chalet is beautifully decorated, the views are amazing, and the breakfasts are gourmet. Patti and Margaret are terrific hosts and provide excellent sightseeing tips.. If you're feeling adventurous they can even book you a hot air balloon ride which will launch on their front lawn.

My husband and I have been staying at The Chalet for 2 years. Each visit is unique and relaxing. We enjoy our stays so much that we schedule multiple visits each year. Pattie and Margaret are awesome hosts and look out for your every need. The breakfasts they prepare are delicious and creative. The rooms and grounds are perfectly decorated. Instead of catching a plane to a far away place we have decided to keep going to The Chalet where we area always welcome and leave each visit with no complaints and looking forward to our next stay. Thank you Pattie and Margaret for all that you do to make each stay so special.

Room Tip: All three rooms are awesome,

We selected this B & B because of the well-deserved, excellent Tripadvisor reviews. The Chalet is a beautiful home on a beautiful piece of wooded, peaceful property. Margaret and Pattie are wonderful, warm, knowledgeable hosts. Before we even arrived, Margaret suggested a terrific stop between Niagara-on-the-Lake (the first stop of our ten day road trip) and Canandaigua, one we would have never considered, at Letchworth State Park. Once we arrived at the Chalet, she and Pattie gave excellent suggestions for area restaurants and activities. I can not rave enough about the three course breakfasts each day. Not only were they delicious but beautifully presented on the plates. We loved that breakfast is served outide on the deck. Margaret and Pattie were conscientous about accommodating our dietary requests. We loved the evening treats as well. Our room, The Balcony Suite, was immaculate and beautifully appointed, though a bit dark. The bathroom was absolutely gorgeous, bright, and so spacious. Hands down, the best B & B experience we have ever had.

My wife chose The Chalet of Canandaigua for a quick vacation and opportunity to see family in the area. We wanted a little quite and the Chalet definitely provides that! Pattie and Margaret are great host and obviously try to get to know their guests and what they want. Pattie really goes all out on the breakfast and it was great everyday. We were not really interested in doing much but we did have a great meal in Canandaigua one night and did our fair share on antiquing!! The area is beautiful and just driving the surrounding area was enjoyable. We plan a return to the area to take in the fall foliage and the Chalet will be first on our list of accommodations. We highly recommend The Chalet of Canandaigua as a great place to stay and Pattie and Margaret as hosts!

Room Tip: If possible get one of the rooms on the second floor for a little more quite.

A nice place to relax in a pastoral environment that still retains the amenities you want from home. The well kept and beautifully rustic lodge is a perfect hideaway for swooning couples or the traveler requiring peace, quiet and delicately prepared food. Margaret and Patty are personable hosts and a pleasure to talk to. Will be back for a future visit!

My son and daughter in law spent a lot of time looking for the ideal place for wedding! Last Saturday, it was the best wedding I had ever attended. Owners, Pattie and Margaret were the ones who provided the warmest welcome and best lodging and breakfast for everyone. I will highly recommend people who are looking for vacation, wedding, birthday, or anniversary celebration at the chalet! You will be pampered as we did

Thank you for your comments, Having your son's wedding here was our pleasure! Thank you for letting us be part of such a special time. It was great meeting you and having you help us "translate" as it was our first time having a wedding here with most of the guests speaking Chinese! We are very happy that everything went so well and that over the course of the three days, all the hard work by the family really paid off! It was a beautiful wedding and reception!
We look forward to someday visiting Hawaii and looking you up! Takecare

I flew from Taiwan to attend my brother's wedding at the Chalet of Canandaigua. It was a ridiculously long flight (15 hours), and I was not in a good mood before I saw the chalet. After we entered the obscure road without sign, what entered my eyes was a serene scene of pond and willows. I thought to myself: "Hmm this could work." Passed it, we found the perfect log cabin that anyone could ever ever imagine. My room was cozy and comfortable, with an adorable fireplace and a super big bath tub. I felt perfectly at peace and rested in the room.

The wedding was probably the biggest one that the Chalet ever hosted. We had around 50+ people, with a tent set up right outside of the Chalet. Margaret and Patti worked non-stop to make everything happen. I have to say, they were probably the most committed and hardworking among the bridal party. Every detail was checked and there was no room for mistake. From caterers to setting the table up, they got everything under control. Our family was extremely touched by their amazing work ethic and passion for their job. I remembered going to sleep at around 11pm after a day of wedding preparation, and they were still busy preparing for next day's breakfast.

The wedding turned out very well under a very acceptable budget.
Now, I must plan my winter vacation there.
I heard they have amazing christmas banquets. yum.

We we're very happy to have the wedding be such a success! Thank you letting us be part of such a special time. It was our pleasure meeting all the extended family over the course of the three days. The ceremony down by the pond was beautiful, and the wedding guests all seem to have a wonderful time attending the celebration. Café Sol did a marvelous job with the catering and everybody's hard work really paid off. Too bad the party had to end!!!!!! Thanks much for taking the time to share your thoughts and we will look forward to seeing you sometime in the future!!!! M&P
