The Edward Harris House in Rochester is a very beautiful Victorian Bed and Breakfast. I was delighted with its elegance and comfort. I also appreciated its location. It is quite close the the Eastman House and also Rochester's art museum. It is within walking distance of the Park Avenue shopping and dining area, which has a lot of elegance and...

The location, architecture, furnishings and cleanliness of this Inn is superior. The rooms are large and well fitted out. The cold and hot breakfast was delicious, including choice of ingredients in a 1-2-3 egg omelette, fresh fruit and a baked flan. The hosts were friendly and very accommodating.

Stayed in the garden suite for a lovely July 4th weekend in Rochester. The location was perfect with an easy walk to many different restaurants. Breakfast each morning was delicious and the house was truly a home away from home as we were able to reheat leftovers and enjoy them in the living room. If we come to Rochester again,...

My husband chanced on this beautiful Bed and Breakfast which is beyond your ordinary B &B. When I told my friends that we were going to Rochester, NY their first reaction was, why? Why not? We wanted to visit the Finger Lakes but didn't know which one or where to stay. Staying in Rochester afforded us the springboard needed to...

We have travelled extensively and the last thing we would describe ourselves as being is overly demanding. We thought we would inform our fellow travellers of our observations of this bed & breakfast. The positives: The house is gorgeous and the common areas are tastefully decorated. This area of Rochester is in a wonderful tree-lined Victorian houses area, within a...

A delightful B&B in central Rochester. A charming old home in a residential neighborhood, just a half mile from the George Eastman House and convenient to expressways. Interior has plenty of Victorian charm and the bedrooms are spacious. Bed was very comfortable. We visited on a hot day but the A/C in our room kept it nice and cool. Ours...
