“The best way to turn 40”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

My sister and I turned 40 in April and as a gift, my Father sent us to the Inn on the Main, for a much needed get away. We were instantly impressed from the second we were greeted by the innkeepers. Their attention to detail was like nothing I've ever seen before. Everything and I mean absolutely everything was perfect. Our room was like a piece of Heaven on Earth. I can't wait to go back!!!

My husband and I just returned from 2 nights at Inn On The main and had a great time. Jaynee and Guy welcome you into their beutiful home with fresh baked goodies and a breakfast with wonderfully prepared and delicious food.Tea, coffee and soft drinks are available in the butlers pantry. The whole house has lovely period features and is decorated perfectly to give you the feeling you have stepped back in time. We stayed in the Penfield Suite with our own parlor and beautiful four poster bed. The side porch is a great place to relax on. The Finger lakes area has awesome scenary and very friendly people where ever we went.Great wineries, antiques and restaurants. We will be back. You will not be disapointed staying at The Inn on the Main. Thanks again Guy and Jaynee.

Thank you for taking the time to respond with a review on Tripadvisor. We're thrilled you enjoyed our newest addition, the Penfield Suite, as we hope it will bring the same joy to other visitors. The wicker porch has been full almost every evening with guests, and we just installed a ceiling fan/light, which makes a great difference of comfort on those hot summer nights.

My wife and I spent 2 wonderful nights at the Inn. Jaynee and Guy were very gracious hosts. The breakfasts were AMAZING!! I don't think my wife and I ever had dessert with breakfast (delicious Rhubarb crumble coffee cake). The room was wonderful, especially the jet tub. We did a wine tour on Saturday and had a superb driver named Bonnie!!! All in all, a wonderful weekend and we will definitely recommend this to our friends!!!

Room Tip: The Gifford Room has a relaxing corner jacuzzi!!

Stayed two nights at this beautiful Inn. The whole place is wonderfully decorated with beautiful carved wood everywhere. The parlor is particularly charming - a great place to read or visit. The whole place is spotless and beds great - firm, wonderful pillows and luxurious linens. The breakfasts were terrific & the innkeepers warm and welcoming. 100% recommend!!!!!

Room Tip: there is one downstairs room if you have a problem with climbing stairs

My husband and I wanted to go on a relaxing trip to the Finger Lakes area. We stayed at this inn for 2 nights, and just loved it! Our room had a garden motif, and was not only beautiful, but so cozy. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful; our hosts were very friendly and accomodating. Everything was immaculate, and every effort was made to make our stay pleasant. We hope to go back when we can enjoy the inviting porch!

Once again, we experienced another pleasurable stay at the Inn on the Main. It is always so nice to see both Guy and Jaynee upon our arrival. Their smiling faces and open arms make us feel so welcome, especially if we have had a very exhausting work week.

This time the visit was for a birthday celebration-what a great place to spend it at! The Jacuzzi tub, fireplace and comfy bed make you forget about getting another year older! We stayed here in the beginning of February, so coming here helped us "escape" some of the winter blahs too!

The coffee/tea and snacks are available any time you wish. The breakfasts each morning are always delicious, and have an appealing presentation when set before you.

We have never encountered a disappointing stay-we will continue to return to the Inn on the Main when we have the opportunity to do so, whether it is for a special celebration or just a last minute getaway. In addition, it is a very nice feature that you can check availability for yourself on their website, as some bed & breakfasts do not allow you to do so.

We were only on the property about 18 hours but loved it! Gus and Jaynee are delightful hosts and very welcoming. You feel right at home immediately. We stayed in the Penfield Suite and it was perfect. Very comfy. There are snacks, coffee, dvd's - just like home! Our breakfast was a blueberry stuffed french toast with fruit and turkey sausage - delicious.

We meet the staff and they are very friendly and knowledgeable about the inn and region.

Can't wait to go back.
