“Very enjoyable stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2008

My wife and I stayed at the Chambery Cottage over a Saturday night and very much enjoyed our stay. The setting was pleasant, in a wooded area high above Canandaigua Lake. Zora, the owner, greeted us by name at the front door. She was friendly, gracious and helpful throughout our stay.

We stayed in the "Bohemian Rhapsody" room. The room was attractive and well-maintained, with a nice view of the surrounding hills and treetops (there is no lake view). During the day there was a little noise of passing cars on Rt. 21 nearby but at night there was no noise save that of the rain and some distant bullfrogs. The room came with a TV (3 broadcast channels only), VCR/DVD player and stereo. There was a decent selection of videos and CDs in the downstairs living room. There are also some books, both fiction and non, and at least one game (chess). I think there is also a refrigerator available but we didn’t use it.

One thing I liked was getting a key so we could let ourselves in. We didn’t stay out very late but I like to know that we can stay out late without worrying about having to disturb the owners to let us in. We slept well in our king-size bed.

Minor quibbles: the bath towels were not terribly big. A couple of oversized plush towels would've been nice to go with the jacuzzi tub. The tub in our room, by the way, was pretty much a one-person tub, although two could squeeze in.

Our windows were the type that you open and close with a revolving handle at the bottom. One of them didn’t seem to work at all and one window opened but I had to shut it by taking off the screen and pulling it with my fingers. There was a window A/C unit but we didn’t need it.

There was not much choice about the time or contents of breakfast, although it was not a problem for us. We were informed that breakfast would be served between 9:00 and 9:15 and we were not given a choice of what we would like. I had no complaints though, as getting up in time for a 9:00 breakfast constitutes “sleeping in” for us these days, and the breakfast was really quite good: peach pancakes with bacon, and orange juice, plus coffee and tea. A selection of homebaked cookies was always available.

As I said, Zora was very pleasant, and she pretty much stayed out of our way, although she made clear that if we needed anything she was available at the ring of a buzzer. Though I frankly like the anonymity of hotels and am somewhat leery of B&Bs for fear of being forced into unwanted conversation, if anything I would’ve appreciated more of a chance to chat with her and her husband Terry, whom we didn’t see at all (there is a resident, very large Great Dane, so if Terry was away, I’m sure Zora felt quite safe). But I have a good idea we’ll be back so perhaps next time we’ll get that chance.

The Chambery Cottage was a great place to stay when doing the Canandaiqua Wine Trail. It is set in very serene surroundings. Our room was very nicely appointed and spacious. We even had a bistro table on our porch! There was a larger table and four chairs set out in a clearing that we utilized to enjoy one of the bottles of wine that we had purchased that day. Small snacks, coffee and tea were provided all the time. We also used the refrigerator to cool down a couple of soft drinks. Breakfast was quite yummy and the presentation of the food was five star. When in the area again, we would definitely return to the Cottage.

We have had the most incredible time at Chambery Cottage B&B. I was so hesitant to come to a B&B but this wasn't just a B&B it was a Home away from home. We have never felt so welcome and comfortable anywhere! The food, rooms & hospitality were perfect!!! We will be coming back and recommending Chambery Cottage B&B to everyone we know.

Just another wonderful, relaxing and very enjoyable time at Chambery Cottage. This was the best anniversary weekend that we have ever had! Zora – as usual incredible breakfasts! We can’t wait for the next visit. Hopefully we will be able to bring our parents with us. We recommend Chambery Cottage to everyone we know and meet! Unfortunately Chambery Cottage have ruined us forever going to any other B&B!!
