My husband and I spent our 34th anniversary here. We stayed in the Portia Ransom room. It had a lovely fireplace. Dinner was delicious. They packed up our coffee and dessert to take up to our room to have later. Great breakfast the next day. We will definitely be back.

Just returned from a very enjoyable stay at ASA Ransom House. This BNB is beautiful and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. I stayed in the Wilson Greatbatch room, which was spacious and tastefully decorated with a library-type decor. The king-size bed was very comfortable. There was a beautiful golden retriever on-site. This dog was very well-behaved, mild-mannered, and... More

Kareny, Glad you enjoyed our special 'Veterans Day' getaway in the Wilson Greatbatch room - named after a Clarence resident and the inventor of the pacemaker. The library, Joseph Ellicott room and Rebecca Hamlin room are in the historic 1853 part of the building. Your room and the dining room are in the 1975 addition. When you travel to other... More

charming inn with cozy rooms and delicious food in a tranquil setting - the staff is helpful and detail-oriented and the inn is a good value, too - we have stayed there several times, each time in a different room and we've loved each trip!

We're glad you enjoyed your recent visit, its one of the highlights of innkeeping to welcome past returning guests. Were busy 'buttoning' up outside by cutting and freezing the herbs from the west herb garden, adding all the leaves to the mulch pile, and stacking the logs for the dining room fireplace. Wishing you and family a very Happy Thanksgiving... More

The Inn is a lovely break from every day life. It is beautifully done, lovingly maintained and run by people who aim to please. Anyone who loves historic architecture will appreciate the work that went into keeping something built in 1853 in such lovely order. The food was delicious and the amenities were appreciated. From the fruit and cheese waiting... More

This is a great place off the beaten path but within striking distance of Niagara Falls. The grounds are great, our room was nice and breakfast was the best. We weren't able to have dinner here but if breakfast is any indication...wow!

I'm in agreement with the other reviewers that found this inn to be upscale, beautiful and very clean so I won't repeat what they have already said. However I will caution guests that if you're looking for a friendly, relaxed, welcoming environment, this may not be for you. The innkeeper, for whatever reason, was stoic and unfriendly. He offered us... More

I apologize if the stress of losing a wonderful father-in-law that week and working for my daughter with the arrival of our new granddaughter caused me not to be at my best.

The Asa Ransom house is well landscaped and well maintained. It has attractive period furniture. In a word, it is "cute." However, functionality is another issue. Most frustrating was the bathroom - there was a cute new toilet, but it was designed so that the toilet seat would not stand up on its own. The television in our room, cutely... More

The "Cute" new toilet has been adjusted to remain open when desired. The TV remote just needed a new battery. Sorry for the allergic reaction to the bathrobe, in our 39 years of serving the traveling public, this was the first time someone has had a reaction. I will check with our soap supplier to see if the formula has... More
