The owners of the 1840 Inn on the Main Bed and Breakfast do a wonderful job. We all felt very comfortable, the house is beautiful, they made dinner reservations and made the absolutely right suggestions for things we should do, that turned out to be better than we had planned. Perfect for couples who want to reconnect.

We stayed at the Inn to attend a nearby antique tractor farm show. I would stay here again, it was wonderful! The house was very clean and the breakfast was outstanding. Guy and Jaynee are excellent hosts.

Among the many places we've stayed in the Finger Lakes, this is the best of the best! The Inn is gorgeous, the rooms are well appointed and very comfortable and the hosts go out of their way to be sure you are enjoying your stay. The breakfasts are by far the best we've had at any B&B and the afternoon... More

Top quality B&B. I stay at many. This one has that special feel you get when the folks who run it, love to run it! It makes a difference. You can walk right out the front door and walk into the town. Short drive to CMAC.

We recently stayed at the Inn on the Main for four nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time. The innkeepers Jaynee and Guy are excellent hosts and paid attention to every detail. Breakfasts were excellent, the Hubbell room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable, and the overall atmosphere was lay back and very accommodating. We highly recommend this Inn and would...

We liked everything about this place. The location is great within walking distance of shops and restaurants. The room was quite good and it is clear that the hosts know how to incorporate all of the best details. The breakfast was excellent. We had no complaints whatsoever and rank this as one of the three top B&Bs that we've stayed... More

This is our third trip to the Inn and it is just as we remembered. It is like coming to visit family. Guy and Jayne are so welcoming and kind. The breakfasts are outstanding. Our room is so comfortable and immaculate. We would definitely recommend the Inn to anyone interested in being treated as a special guest.

We returned to our favorite B&B in the Candaigua for a birthday celebration and rest. When we consider a few days respite we turn to the Inn on Main. Guy and Jaynee always present an immaculately clean home. They provide gluten free food for me and have cookies for all to share.

Room was great, extremely clean. Home has been restored to its period with love and passion. Stayed two nights and had two breakfast meals, the food was perfect. You can see the owners/family pay attention to every detail.
