The Ellwanger Estate is true gem. Rosemary has created a beautiful piece of art right in the middle of the city of Rochester. The gardens are amazingly kept and worth a visit even if you're not staying on the property. Every detail is attended to and the efforts Rosemary has made to be sustainable are to be commended.

My husband and I spent the past weekend at Ellwanger Estate for a babymoon getaway, and it was everything we hoped it would be! This was our first experience at a B & B, and we were blown away with the hospitality and service that Rosemary offered us at Ellwanger. The breakfasts were delicious, the rooms comfortably furnished, and the... More

This was my first stay at a B&B and it was much better than I ever hoped for - actually it was fantastic! I travelled to Rochester (Finger Lakes District) with two friends/work companions for a long weekend at the end of October, and we were all thoroughly impressed. Rosemary is warm and charming and the property is a fascinating... More

For a quick one-night stay, we wanted warm, clean, and comfortable. Ellwanger Estate is all this and more. It is a late 1800's grand dame, and we were swept back in time with the marvelous oak woodwork, antique furnishings, while being spoiled with a remodeled bath, tiny, but sufficient with all the current luxuries and amenities. The room was quiet... More

We cannot say enough about the extremely enjoyable two night stay at Ellwanger Estate. Everything and I mean everything was delightful. Breakfast was a dining experience.Just sitting in the main common room and relaxing with the paper was a joy. Thank you Rosemary.

My husband & I stayed overnite in the Woodlands Suite for our 37th anniversary. The inn keeper, Rosemary, and her staff are great -- very friendly and ready to answer any questions or fulfill any requests. Breakfast was marvelous -- fresh fruit, locally baked croissants, and a wonderful vegetable quiche. I loved our suite -- the birds fly around in... More

…..there's no other way to 'get' all that I'm about to say about Ellwanger Estate B&B. There's history and warmth, elegance and friendliness, generosity and quirkiness. The house and grounds were brought back which such elegance, it's a privilege to just be there, to sit on any of the sofas to get the different perspectives of the house. And the... More

The B&B is one of a kind.In fact you can't call it just a B&B, it's a real experience! A fantastic old house, full of architectural details with the warmest welcome - Rosemary pulls out all the stops to make guests at home.

I recently (July 2014) went to Rochester to work with colleagues at the Medical Centre, and found out about Ellwanger via Tripadvisor. I cannot overstate just how good my stay was! The rooms are beautiful and eclectic - there's even one with birds on the walls and a book which has their descriptions and birdcalls! I stayed in the Traveller's... More

My fiance and I had the most wonderful stay here, we can't wait to return. We stayed in the Woodland Suite (a surprise upgrade, but beautiful and much appreciated), and the rooms were exceptional. Rosemary is a wonderful host, so warm and kind, and it was a pleasure to share our weekend with her!
