The Inn is clean, impeccably maintained and the hosts are helpful, friendly and courteous. The breakfasts and snacks were beautifully prepared and delicious. They accommodated my fiance's gluten-free request without any drop-off in taste or appearance.

We're happy to make accommodations to dietary needs, if we can, and are thrilled you felt the Inn was maintained to a "T". We have been doing our best to bring this diamond in the rough to shine again! Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other travelers. We hope to see you again soon. More

We stayed in the first floor suite and loved it. It was restful, romantic and wonderfully maintained. Owners are charming and welcoming. Breakfasts were delicious. Town of Canandaigua is delightful. Check out Sonnenberg Gardens and Finger Lakes winery. We will go back.

We are so glad you found us. Canandaigua is OUR home now. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. So much to do in this friendly little "Mayberry" of the world. It's a short walk, as you know to downtown shops, restaurants, historic sites, and only one mile from the breathtaking lakefront. We hope you will find a reason to... More

The 1820 Victorian home, decorated in the style of the era, is an absolute delight, from top to bottom. The porch with its wicker chairs and tables, well kept garden and lawn, to the upstairs bedrooms, perfect! Every time I walked down the stairs, which had two stairways merge into one, I felt like Scarlett O'Hara from Gone with the... More

I booked one night as a surprise for my husband. We didn't have to go far and we'd be home early the next day. It was following brutal news of a death in our family. We needed to escape. I'll recommend this hidden oasis to anyone. For a few hours, we were whole again.

My husband and I spent one night at 1840 Inn on the Main, and our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. The Inn is GORGEOUS, beautifully and tastefully decorated Victorian and immaculately clean. The owners are lovely, welcoming and helpful without being intrusive - perfect.

We called last minute to get in that night as the hubby messed up our reservation dates at another local inn. What a happy mistake as we landed in this simply outstanding B&B with the friendliest and most attentive of hosts.

We stayed for 2 nights and the inn exceeded our expectations. The room was gorgeous, the innkeepers were super friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, and the breakfasts were out of this world. Short walk to town, plenty of restaurants to choose from and things to do locally.
