“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

My husband and I spent four lovely days at this lovely historic bed and breakfast. Everything was very well appointed and the breakfasts delicious and beautifully presented. We had the Penfield Suite which was very tastefully decorated and comfortable. It was heavenly to fall into bed at night and sleep on high quality sheets. Guy and Jaynee were terrific hosts and we shared many a chuckle with Guy at breakfast. The most pleasant and perfect B & B we have stayed in thus far. Restaurants (Mexican and Nolans) which were recommended by Guy and Jaynee did not disappoint. We plan on returning to this area as found there is much to do and that appeals to us. Thank you, Guy and Jaynee for making our stay in the Finger Lakes area so enjoyable and memorable!...... Bryan and Anne (Kitchener, Ontario)

Room Tip: All the rooms are very tastefully decorated. We enjoyed the Penfield Suite on the main floor as it h...

I would recommend Inn on the Main to anyone thinking about visiting NY's Finger Lakes. We had a great experience- it was a charming house, very clean, and the breakfast was delicious. The owners were extremely attentive. Looking forward to visiting again!

My husband and I stayed here 1 night for our anniversary. It was our first B&B so we weren't sure what to expect. We would not hesitate to do it again and would definitely stay here again. Guy the innkeeper was as nice as could be and his recommendation of Nolan's for dinner was great. The inn was immaculate. Our room was bigger than I had thought and very nicely decorated. We had our own bathroom. A very quiet place. We had very good company for breakfast with the other guests. The inn is so close to downtown you can walk if you choose. We also tooled around and tried a few of the wineries. All in all, outstanding and we'd love to go back!

Jaynee and Guy Straw are gracious hosts at the 1840 Inn on Main conveniently located in the lovely town of Canandaigua, NY. You are truly made to feel welcome and at home. The inn has been impeccably restored and each room provides beautiful and comfortable decor. Gourmet breakfasts were served at the appointed time with a presentation second to none! And, delicious too! We used Canandaigua as a base to spend several days visiting the Finger Lakes and the many fine wineries and other attractions in the area. The Canandaigua Lady paddle boat ride was of particular interest.

It exceeded our expectations. So very clean and Jaynee and Guy Straw are the nicest couple running the Inn. We like to stay close to town and be within walking distance. We were about 15 minutes from town and another 15min from Canandaigua Lake. Absolutely beautiful! The New York Culinary Institute is definitely worth a visit as well as the boathouses. Simply Crepes Restaurant in town was yummy. The scenery around the lake rivals California. Breakfast at the Inn was delicious and we slept well in the bed. Everyone was very accommodating and they made a point to make you feel right at home. What a majestic house! It would be a shame to go anywhere else!

Room Tip: If you're a really light sleeper, choose a room in the back of the house.

This beautiful home in Canandaigua is what Bed and Breakfast inn's are supposed to be! Our hosts, Guy and Jaynee, were gracious and and warm, and the food was superb, but even more importantly, the rooms (we've stayed there twice) are GORGEOUS!!!! We fell in love with the town of Canandaigua because of this house. And will continue to go back again and again...Canandaigua calls me!
