What a great find! Found the Sassafras looking for an alternative to the overpriced motel/hotels. You feel at home from the moment you arrive. I was greeted by owner Audrey who is close by. The home has all the charm you expect of a B & B, with period furniture and comfortable rooms. Morning enjoying the delicious breakfast prepared by... More

My husband and I came to Lancaster NY on our way to Niagara Falls Canada. We spent the night at the Sassafras B&B and what a lovely treat it was. The house is beautiful and well appointed with eclectic and period pieces of every kind from the furniture to the pictures to the books and doll house. You could spend... More

I stayed at the Sassafras while I was in Buffalo for a wedding. The house and rooms are well-appointed and very clean. I stayed in the Olive P. Lester Room, which gets great light and has a spacious bathroom. The bed was extremely comfortable. Ken is very easy-going and accomodating (check-in and check-out times are flexible) and he makes a... More

Lancaster is my hometown. We return every couple of years and get in a lot of visiting with family and friends. After each very full and hectic day, we are so happy to come back to the B&B and spend some down time in our room to unwind and relax. The house is extremely warm and inviting. The rooms are...

What a pleasant surprise to find a bed and breakfast in my hometown of Lancaster, New York! The decor was beautiful and the bedrooms were spacious and so comfortable. My sister and two nieces joined me to visit another sister who lives in the area. It was so wonderful to have the large dining room and parlor areas to sit... More

I visited in May 10th & 11th 2013. The home is a registered historic building and the interior is wonderfully done. There was ample parking. Ken was there to greet me and help with the bag. He will make a hardy breakfast every morning (included) with plenty of hot coffee. The atmosphere is very relaxed and you will be given... More

A gorgeously restored, national historic landmark, the Sassafras was a delightful B&B experience. The home is beautiful, and each room unique. We went to Lancaster for a family wedding, so several members of our family booked rooms there. My husband, son and I enjoyed our room on the third floor with my cousin across the hall. My parents had a... More

We enjoyed our stay here as we traveled from the Midwest to Massachusetts - the home has been beautifully restored and our room was comfortable and roomy. Our innkeeper, Ken, was knowledgeable about the history of the home and the town as well as local eateries. He was also amenable to an early and hearty breakfast before we hit the... More

We stayed six nights and had a wonderful experience. The hosts were knowledgable about the area and very welcoming but not at all intrusive. Our room was large and beautifully furnished with a walk-in closet and huge bathroom. Bed and bath linens were of excellent quality and everything was spotlessly clean. Breakfast each day was a unique and delicious experience.... More

I recently stayed at the Sassafras B&B while visiting Buffalo. It's located in a lovely restored Victorian home in the suburb of Lancaster. As all of my activities were close by, it was the perfect place to stay. Our hosts were friendly and attentive to our needs. I had breakfast on three mornings of my stay and each was a... More
