Reviewed 17 January 2013

We stayed at Temple Hill in October 2012 with friends and had a wonderful time. We were looked after so well by Gail and Mary and were able to take advantage of the lovely end of season weather to sit on the verandah in the evening - joined by the cats. Ours was the Academy Room with a bathroom to die for! Lovely shower and bath, plenty of room and a really comfy sleep. It was just so relaxing. Our hosts had plenty of ideas for trips out when we asked and were even kind enough to loan us a map and booklet for one trip. Would recommend!

My husband and I checked into the Temple Hill B&B on Christmas eve and had a lovely stay!
Gail and Mary are wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home.
The bed and breakfast is an old school and is absolutely charming. The inside is as beautiful as the outside and you feel as through you are staying with family. Our room was beautiful and the bed was incredibly comfortable.
When we arrived back at the B&B late on Christmas eve we were greeted by one of their very friendly cats, Chester, who followed us up the stairs.
Our breakfast on Christmas morning was delicious, cranberry bread, fresh fruit salad, ham and stuffed french toast. Their home was beautifully decorated for Christmas complete with a giant Christmas tree.
My husband and I can't wait to stay at the Temple Hill Bed & Breakfast again!

We were so fortunate to find this charming b&b 3 1/2 yrs ago while staying in Geneseo, where our daughter attends college. We would never stay anywhere else, the home , rooms are immaculate , and Gail and Mary are the perfect inn-keepers. The breakfasts are always great, and we always feel so at home. Also love the kitties :) Our memories of Geneseo will certainly have Temple Hill B&B, and having known Mary and Gail, on the top of our list. Staying here is always my treat to myself.

Wow. I can't imagine anyone wanting to stay in a hotel when there is space in this place that exceeds all expectations. Our room was immaculate. It was large and airy with elegant furnishings, comfortable bed, spacious bathroom, and a fireplace! There is beautiful scenery outside every window, no matter what room you are in. This beautiful residence has wonderful outdoor spaces - a relaxing porch, green spacious lawns, and a large and inviting swimming pool. Gardens surround the grounds, both flower and vegetable. Each breakfast was a culinary delight with veggies from the garden and other fresh local ingredients. Vegan dishes and other food requests are happily accommodated. The location is perfect for a Finger Lakes experience with countless excursions waiting for your delight. It is also a jewel for those parents who want to come and visit their Geneseo State attending children. Mary and Gail are super friendly, knowledgeable, and will point you in the right direction for any and all activities. The very best part for me was the warmth and friendliness of Mary and Gail. They were especially made for this business and will make your stay and this outstanding B&B one that you won't forget.

Room Tip: All rooms are great!

Thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at the Temple Hill Inn in mid-September. The history of the house was very interesting, the innkeepers were friendly and attentive, and breakfast was excellent. We also enjoyed the surrounding park-like neighborhood with mature trees and sidewalks. There was a dog and two cats on the property but they were no problem and we enjoyed their company on the back patio.

All the common area rooms as well as the bedrooms were unusually spacious for a B&B. Parking on the circle drive is limited and we parked on the lawn one night. I can see that could be a problem if the weather was rainy, but didn't detract from our enjoyment of stay.

Unfortunately, very allergic to cats and dogs which were both freely around the b and b. Thus, I could not breathe during my stay there. Nice breakfast. Parking was iffy on the grass since my car was surrounded by a lake after a little rain. I was greated by a barking dog when knocking on door. Usually, you would have free access to the living room but a teenager showed up and took over the living room. Would not stay here again.

This huge historic house is lovely, spotless and in excellent condition. Our bedroom was spacious and the bathroom was large. The neighborhood is quiet and our two hosts were friendly and welcoming. The place is conveniently located to visit the Finger Lakes wineries. Enjoyed our stay and would definitely choose to stay here again when in the area.
