“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed October 5, 2010

After watching the sun rise over the lake with a great cup of coffee, a casual hike through the woods, and a whirlpool bubble bath... we had an an amazing breakfast! Jon and Linda are spectacular hosts willing to give points of interests of the area (not the generic ones... the ones only locals know) if you would like, or silently bring fresh baked cookies for a snack then disappear... they are truly there for you and your B&B experience!

We had such a great time visiting Onanda by the Lake. The B&B is clean, comfortable, and elegant. The views of Lake Canandaigua are incredible. We especially enjoyed sitting and relaxing on the front porch and taking in the beauty. There was a lot to do in the area. The Lake has plenty of water sports and swimming. We visited a winery and did some tasting. We would definitely return for another visit.

We were so very impressed with Onanda by the Lake! What a lovely place to relax and unwind, which is exactly what we were looking for. Linda and Jon were the quintessential hosts during our 2 night stay, making us feel more than comfortable. Our every want was anticipated! The extra touches were the icing on the cake, from the chocolates at bedside, to the fully stocked refreshment station with ice cold lemonade, specialty coffees and teas...even homemade cookies! The just-picked-from-their-garden hydrangeas on the table, the hand written anniversary wishes note, and the more than satisfying breakfasts made us feel like royalty. Our premier suite exceeded our expectations! Jon and Linda's decorating taste was the right mix of comfort and luxury, from the antiques, to the fabulous wide plank flooring, and the calming ice blue walls, draperies and pillows. But our favorite place of all was the private deck, where we watched a doe and her fawn near the edge of the woods, and at night, the stars dripped from the heavens! We were treated to shooting stars and even a meteor! The view of Canandaigua lake from the front porch is breathtaking. We could not have asked for a better place to celebrate our anniversary, and we cannot wait to return!

What a new gem in the B&B selections in the Finger Lakes area of NY! The property, on a forested hill overlooking Lake Canandaigua is right at the halfway point between lots of wineries to the south and the charming town of Canandaigua to the north. Elegantly furnished with a mix of antigues and cottage style furnishings and plush beds with lots of pillows, you could never go anywhere and still have a relaxing, wonderful stay.

Linda and John go out of their way to make sure every need is met and all accomodations are perfect. And the breakfasts? Different, creative and delicious variety shows a lot of thought goes into each meal. And then there's the pitchers of iced lemonade in the rooms, clean sheets and towels always and when you return from exploring, the room looks like you just checked in.

Beautiful flowers abound and John and Linda invite you to hang out in the adirondack chairs on the porch with a glass of Finger Lakes wine. There is a hiking trail right on the property which takes you along the edge of a pretty gully that turns into a stream after rains.

Though not on all the lists yet because it only became a B&B early this year, look for it and book a stay! This is a 5 star property with the the most accomodating and friendly of hosts.

We experienced our second perfect getaway at Onanda by the Lake. It is a beautiful, spacious home in a gorgeous location, any time of year. We like the quiet walks on the trails, clean, comfortable rooms and knowledgeable, friendly owners. Not far away are some nice restaurants, swimming in the summer, the CMAC concerts and the Wine and Culinary Center. We look forward to a summer visit to sip wine on the veranda overlooking the lake!

This was a perfect getaway! My partner and I enjoyed the country elegance and tranquility when we stayed at Onanda by the Lake. We hiked the wonderful trails and had dinner at Bristol Harbour Restaurant while overlooking Canandaigua Lake. Our room was very comfortable and beautiful. We felt we had found a cozy nook away from the hustle and bustle, without traveling far to get there.
