My husband and I stayed at Hayward House for one evening after a long day of driving on the way home from Buffalo. I tend to be hesitant to stay in B &Bs, because I think they are often over priced and uncomfortable. This was not the case with Hayward House. The host Michelle greeted us and showed us around her home. She was welcoming but not intrusive. We stayed in a beautiful room with great amenities. The bathroom was completely renovated..wonderful local goat soap and a basket of toiletries. The room had a great selection of music and literature, it was very comfortable. We spent the night on the front porch sipping some local wine and sharing dinner which we purchased at a restaurant recommended by our host. The following morning our breakfast was delicious, featuring local farm products, delicious coffee, lots of berries.
Before leaving Michelle gave us directions leading to a local farm and a local cheese producer. We hit up both before going to a day at the vineyards.
This was a great B & B and I will definitely look to stay here again.
