“Absolutely Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2008

This review is long overdue. My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary and we were blown away with the hospitality we received. Every day the breakfast was fresh and hot, the conversation warm, and the owners more than pleasant.

Our room was beautifully appointed and very clean. The owners made pleasant conversation each day but did not intrude on our time. There were always freshly baked snacks by the door.

We would return in a heartbeat! Enjoy!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2007

We went away for a birthday vacation over Labor Day weekend and stayed at this wonderful B&B. It is easy to find, located on RT 5&20. Upon arrival we were given a tour of the property and found a surprise when we entered our room (a small birthday cake to help celebrate the big day). We stayed in the Seneca room which was very spacious and clean. The bed was extremely comfortable, this is the first time we slept in in a long time. The inn keepers, Pris and Tom, were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the time we spent with them over breakfast. The food was delicious and very filling, there was definitely no need for lunch. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone looking to stay in Canandaigua.

The Chosen Spot (in Canandaigua, which means "the chosen spot" in a native American language) is a small (three rooms) bed and breakfast run by attentive, friendly people. I've stayed in two of the three rooms already, and will try the other soon. Extremely comfortable queen-sized beds (important for aging backs), cushy and firm at the same time because of the featherbed padding; whirlpool baths long enough for me to lie in full lenght (but I'm short); AC; fireplaces; dozens of videos and DVD's available for entertainment. Breakfast is large, delicious, and 'over the top.' Who needed lunch? In the afternoon, Pris puts out homemade shortbread to die for, or berry pies. It was too late in the season for us to sample the swimming pool, but we could see it out the window. Chickens roam the yard (you have to latch the front gate so they don't come up on the porch), making their contributions to breakfast. The one short-coming of this was that we were awakened by roosters crowing on a sunny morning. The next morning (which was cloudy), they didn't start crowing until much later. Probably not a great place for highly allergic people both because of the featherbeds and also because of the friendly cats (who roam the house) and dog. A good bargain - the rooms run from $100/night for the smallest room to $140/night for the largest. And unlike the Ramada Inn, they don't up the prices on you for special weekends. I highly recommend this place.

  • Liked — Great hosts, wonderful beds and baths.
  • Disliked — Local water doesn't taste good.
