“A very enjoyable weekend”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

This is a fine Inn. Gail and Mary made us very comfortable and welcome. The rooms have been refurbished with lovely old and vintage looking furniture and new fixtures in roomy bathrooms. Breakfast was delicious in the common dining room. Friends who stayed in another inn on Main Street spent some time with us on the back porch enjoying a glass of wine and quickly knew we had made the better choice. They, too, will return to this location.

We stayed at Temple Hill B&B while visiting our son at Geneseo. Gail & Mary were so friendly. We even made friends with the dog and cats. The room was large and nicely furnished. I would love to go back when it's warmer to enjoy the verandah and pool. Oh, and the breakfasts were delicious!

I stayed at Temple Hill B&B several times. The place is beautiful, well-appointed, and very clean. The breakfast was the best I have ever had...anywhere. The hosts were friendly and gracious. I traveled with two of my two adult sons and they said their room was exceptional. I have stayed at many B&B's in the US and Europe. This one is the best!

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!
