Ellwanger Estate

Reviewed 29 January 2011

I probably wouldn't normally choose to vacation in Rochester, but both my husband and I went to college in Rochester, so we like to visit friends. The inn is beautiful and is situated in Rochester - but you almost feel like you're not in the city. The rooms are comfortable and the grounds are very nice. I'm sure the grounds are even better in the spring and summer, but we visited at the end of October after a lot of the trees had lost their leaves. Rosemary cooks up quite a breakfast - it's pretty much fantastic and one of the best of all the B&B's we've stayed at. Almost the entire first floor is yours to enjoy with many places to sit - even a nice porch (I'm sure the porch would have been great had it been a bit warmer). The only quirk is that the rooms only lock from the inside, so while the inn is locked all day, you can't lock your actual room unless you are in it. This really wasn't an issue as it is a small inn and people mind their business.
