“Fantastic stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

Beautiful house with large rooms throughout giving it a very warm and cozy feeling. Gourmet breakfasts were served each morning in the dining area at 9am with an amazing array of food from nut/fruit breads, parfaits, baked apple, quiche and pancakes. Bill and Lynne were very accommodating as well with dietary alterations when possible......being vegetarian Lynne was more then happy to withhold the meat addition to our quiche in the morning so we could enjoy and savor every bite. Everything cooked was to die for! Our favorite part was the outside hot tub that is enclosed by a gazebo, with spa robes in our room and plenty of towels available....a perfect way to relax at the end of the day on a beautiful fall night. This B&B encompasses everything from elegance, class, and warm hospitality!

Room Tip: Rooms towards the back of the house are the quieter ones, with this B&B being right on the main...

Pleased to report that not only is this a wonderful B&B , the new owners are quite knowledgeable about local cycling possibilities for recreational cyclists plus have covered indoor storage for bikes when not out on the road. Don't want to understate how great the location was in terms of accessing the local must sees, the ambiance and food were though. Quality, quantity and presentation were great!

Our first experience at a B&B was certainly wonderful. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very welcoming. We sayed in the suite, which was just lovely. The full body shower...oh joy! Our hosts, Bill and Lynn, made us feel so at home and were glad to give directions and suggestions for attractions to visit. The breakfasts are out of this world, too. We will definitely visit again. I enjoyed working on the puzzle during "down time" and the living room with it's beverage table made for easy interaction with other guests. A most enjoable experience!

Room Tip: The corner suite (Oliver Phelps Suite) is luxurious and comfortable. A great choice for a romantic g...

Bill and Lynne were gracious hosts during our three-day stay at this beautiful NY state bed & breakfast inn. Our room was comfortable and private without being fussy. In fact the entire house is incredibly comfortable and inspires guests to mix and mingle in the living room over a jigsaw puzzle or cup of coffee, enjoy a board game in the game room, or even check email with the free wi-fi. A charming period house with all the comforts of home. Breakfasts were top-notch and never boring -- featuring homemade sausage, granola and other ingredients, local produce and juices, and all served with a friendly smile and hot coffee! The grounds offer quiet places to relax and read, and the innkeepers are ready with restaurant and sight-seeing suggestions when you are ready to hit the road. A must-stay in beautiful Canandaigua!

Bill and Lynne were fantastic hosts! Everything about our stay was wonderful! Our room was spacious and clean with lots of character, breakfast was amazing every morning, the location was great, and the amenities were above and beyond our expectations. We could not have asked for a better B&B for our trip to Canandaigua! I would recommend to everyone and would definitely stay there again.

After a very hectic wedding weekend, we checked into Oliver Phelps to begin our honeymoon. Bill greeted us and showed us around the beautiful historic home. The house was very clean and comfortable. We stayed in the large suite and loved the fireplace, comfortable bed, and wonderful shower. Both Bill and Lynne were friendly and helpful. They had a remarkable knowledge about the restaurants in the area and helped us find a few that we really enjoyed. Breakfasts for the two mornings we stayed were amazing. According to my husband, they were the best breakfasts that he has EVER had. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay!

Room Tip: We loved the Oliver Phelps room. It was large with plenty of room to unwind.

Lynn and Bill are wonderful owners of a wonderful historical property. With Canandaigua's year long city celebration its a great time to visit and partake of the events schedule. Lynn and Bill made great recommendations, and it felt like home staying at Oliver Phelps except with better breakfasts than I could never imagine cooking. The rooms are very comfortable with an added plus of a mourning dove nesting just by the front porch. The Bed and Breakfast at Oliver Phelps is close to the Granger Homestead and is a short walk to the shops on Main Street.
