My husband and I have stayed her nearly a dozen times over the last 3 years. Manny and Susan (owners) and Heather (innkeeper) always manage to make us feel like family. We spent Easter there one year and had the most delicious "puff" you could imagine and they were completely accommodating when we booked the entire inn and had multiple... More

We were fortunate enough to book a night's stay at The Edward Harris House during our recent end of May road trip. If you are going to Rochester, I cannot recommend this Inn enough. With gracious hosts, this Inn is provided us with most memorable, wonderful accommodations. It is located in the historic district, just doors away from the Eastman... More

My three friends and I spent my birthday weekend enjoying time at this cozy waterfront cottage. It was the perfect location for all our needs, including the mandatory trip to the Cheesecake Factory (20 minute drive) that we try to fit in every time we cross the border! The cottage was spotless and well equipped, and the fireplace was definitely... More

Our first trip to this Inn won't be our last! This is a beautiful, restored mansion that should not be missed the next time you pass through Rochester, NY. The neighborhood is quiet, safe and a short walk down the street to boutiques, cafes and restaurants. Heather was a sweetheart and very helpful. Also, a great cook with killer French... More

I love to stay at B&B's! The Edward Harris House was a very nice option for us during the orientation move-in days at the University of Rochester. Located in a lovely neighborhood with other large older homes with a lot of character, about 4 miles from the University, near the Museum's on East Ave, we enjoyed being able to walk... More

We were so lucky to have been able to have the inaugural stay at the new lake cottage of the Edward Harris Inn on Long Pond in Greece this past week. It is a quaint, beautiful lake cottage where you and your family can spread out, enjoy the cool breezes off the pond, sit around a fire and relax. We... More

Our family slept soundly, ate well and felt oh-so-pampered and comfortable during our stay at this remarkable and wonderful Bed and Breakfast, conveniently located in the Park Avenue district on Argyle Street. Our stay coincided with Commencement Weekend (both RIT and U of R) and the city was very busy, our schedules were hectic. Our oasis was this special place,... More

Graduation weekends are as special to us as they are to the parents and families that stay with us. In many cases - these are families we have watched grow and change throughout the 4 (sometimes 5) years that parents stay with us. It's always sad to see them go - but hopefully one day they will (and do) come... More

My husband and I travel extensively. As a result we tend to be careful when we choose any new accommodations. After reading the numerous high ratings on the Edward Harris Inn we chose it for our much needed escape. Suffice it to say the previous positive reviews were all right on the mark. We too found the home, the food,... More
