People who like B+Bs go for the homey feel and personal touch and Canal Lamp has both. Yes it's true that Pat who manages the place and lives behind the B+B is not always on site, but for many I think that could be seen as a plus. Besides, the 2 times we've stayed, we saw her every morning while... More

I can't say enough about this charming B&B! I felt spoiled yet at home. I had the pleasure of staying in the Canal View room and I'm still dreaming about the bed. The quaint Victorian decor brought me back in time yet the modern accommodations still allowed me to enjoy the latest episode of Downtown Abbey! I also loved the... More

I love this town and I love the Canal Lamp Inn. My fiancé and I had an amazing, romantic weekend! Every aspect of our stay was perfect- the gorgeous rooms, the atmosphere of Pittsford and our delicious breakfast! Pat, the innkeeper, made the stay and the french toast just what we needed- a relaxing getaway! We will definitely be making... More

I've sent several friends and colleagues to this Inn. I tried to use it myself as I am visiting my hometown for Christmas and thought a pampering would be nice. No such luck. Given the fact that the proprietors did not accept our type of credit cards (is Diners so alien these days?), we offered a wire transfer - CASH... More

had the opportunity to stay the night at this lovely B & B. Its right next door to the canal and a 2 minute walk from a quaint little town that 100 years ago must have been a great stop on or near one of the canal lockes. This place is tucked in a nice tree lined corner with lots... More

We had a recent get-a-away for a celebration. We stayed at the Canal lamp Inn and enjoyed every moment that we were there. The hostess, Pat was so helpful and the breakfast was enough to make anyone happy. Being celiac there are challenges but Pat was very willing to assist me with the choices and also brought in a friend... More

The inn's next door neighbor is the canal. We had the whole inn to ourselves for the weekend; after we arrived, my girlfriend decided she pick her favorite room for us, fortunately it was the same room that I had selected as well! She loved the tub. It was a great get-away for us even though we live in Rochester,... More

I recently stayed at theCanal Lamp Inn with a group of friends. Yes, it is true that the hosts are not present however, it also gives you a sense of privacy. They were only a phone call away. We had the best girlfriends weekend one could ask for. There was plenty of space and the bedrooms are comfortable and charming.... More

We stayed at the Canal Lamp Inn so we could visit our family in the Rochester Area. The staff was professional and the Victorian house was decorated beautifully for the Holidays. We had lots of privacy and enjoyed the cozy surroundings. The breakfasts are fantastic. There is no wifi most of the time. We will definitely be back.

Location was perfect for our biking trip on the Erie Barge Canal trail. House was very nice, bedrooms spacious and beds comfortable however if you are expecting a typical B&B you will be disappointed. There is no resident host so you have the very spacious house to yourself. Someone (different person each of the 2 days we were there) will... More
