“Finger Lakes Hiking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

Pattie and Maggie have created an oasis of calm away from the whirlwind of our busy lives. We hadn't slept so well for a long time! Their delightful chalet is within easy driving distance from some of the most beautiful Finger Lakes hikes and provides the perfect base to explore, fuelled by their spectacular breakfasts! Thank you. We look forward to returning soon.

Room Tip: We loved the balcony room.

That is one of many descriptions we could use to identify The Chalet!! Our 3 day 2 night stay was just awesome from the ambience to the food, the country wooded surroundings. The highlight of our stay were the owners, Maggie and Pattie. They personify the word "hospitality". My wife and I do quite a bit of traveling and can honestly say The Chalet rates near the top of our list of places we've stayed. We will be sure to pay another visit to The Chalet of Canandaigua!

We just returned from a getaway weekend to the chalet. It is the best B&B experience we have had ever. To Marg and Pattie a big thank you- you are the element that makes this our best. You are so welcoming, informative and do it in such an non intrusive way you leave feeling you are friends and not just customers. Your food - you make eating breakfast an experience to please the senses. You helped us arrange a sunrise hot air balloon ride with Liberty Balloon Rides - handing us over to again I think the nicest people in the business - Lee and Roger. I could go on about the chalet but hope readers get the chance to see for themselves.

Room Tip: Only three rooms so book early

Our children gave us a night at the Chalet as a gift last Christmas. As I wrote in the guest book in our room "what a beautifully wrapped present it was." The rustic log chalet on a hill surrounded by trees was so welcoming. We were warmly greeted by Margaret who gave us the tour that ended in our balcony room. My day had started very hectic and had a later start than anticipated and so my husband and I decided on an early dinner. We met Pattie and Margaret in the the massive kitchen to discuss dinner options. Out of their wicker basket they pulled various menus giving us details on each to help us decide. We took a short stroll on a path in the woods before leaving for dinner. While we were dining we discussed what a fabulous deck they had so we picked up some Finger Lakes Wine to take back to the Chalet to sit on the rockers and savor. It was a gorgeous evening with a beautiful full moon. We were joined at one point or another by the two other couples that were staying there as well as Pattie and Margaret. It was so relaxing! The next morning we had a gourmet three course breakfast on the deck. It was picture perfect. In discussing our lack of plans for the day, Margaret inquired about our interests and mapped out for us various activities to do that would take us in our homeward direction. We lazily sat on the deck and drank our coffee imagining being there in the other seasons of the year. When it was time to take our leave, we hugged our new friends and drove off with our map in hand. Our major disappointment for this place was that the rooms were booked for that evening otherwise we would have asked to extend our visit there.

What can we say that hasn't already been said? After years of staying at other inns and hotels in the Canandaigua/Geneva area, we found the Chalet of Canandaigua and fell in love. We were immediately drawn to the unique rustic log structure and secluded grounds. After speaking with Maggie & Pattie, we knew this was where we wanted to spend our vacation. Their warmth & sincerity (not to mention their extensive knowledge of the area!), the incomparable Lee Suite, the exceptional breakfasts and specially prepared dinners compelled us to immediately schedule another 7 day stay in October 2014. It's very obvious that Maggie & Pattie love what they do and share so much of themselves with their guests. We felt so much at home with them. The Chalet is truly a special place and there really aren't enough words to describe the feeling that you have when you are there. Thank you so much for a very cool and outstanding 7 days...can't wait to come back next year!

Room Tip: If we had our way, no one would ever choose the Lee Suite (so we could have it anytime we wanted it...

My husband and I just returned from our 4 night stay at the Chalet in Canandaigua and I am excited to write about our adventure. I can’t say enough about our hosts Margaret and Patty. They are exceptional in the world of bed and breakfasts. They made us feel at home from the first day and made us feel like family all throughout our visit. Their home is warm, comfortable, spacious and decorated perfectly for that luxury rustic experience we were looking for. Breakfast was a culinary work of art, delicious, beautiful to look at and modified to our specifications. Each evening a dessert was waiting for us. We never left for the day without a private consultation with Margaret to make sure we were hitting all the highlights of the area. The Chalet is centrally located for wine trails, antiquing, museums, parks and just 2 hours from Niagra Falls. Our hosts made sure we had reservations every night for great restaurants and helped us plan our daily routes. Our room was on the first floor so easily accessible to everything. We had a gas stove and a mini frig along with an extra sink and large mirror in the entry room. Perfect for two people trying to get ready at the same time. The king bed was very comfortable and we slept like a log. If you have an opportunity to stay at the Chalet, relax and enjoy. We feel you made the best choice. Thanks again to Patty and Margaret.

Once at the Chalet, We drove up a meandering driveway ...went past a large pond with an island in the middle and a weeping willow softly swaying from the breeze.. I saw turtles setting on a Log warming their selves in the sun. Once we arrived at the top of the drive...we saw....THE CHALET!, it was beautiful. We were greeted at the door with a big smile by Patti & Margret, they showed us around then we got settled in..it was our second visit to the chalet. We stayed in the spotless beautiful romantic, LEE room...the bed was very comfortable too. Margret & Patti told us places to visit .(.we really loved the winery that had special made chocolate to go with the wine)Morning came,we were seated on the deck .the air was chilled but they turned on heaters so we were warm ( a tiny toad was perched on the railing while we ate)...Margret & Patti go out of their way with making a three course breakfast starting with coffee or tea and juice ...each delicious dish is explained in detail and presentation is too pretty to eat...but we did ;) On our main plate was a candle that was lit....it was a zero for our beginning first year of marriage..(second marriage for both, knew each other since first grade) they are so thoughtful!! The entire Chalet is so Beautiful! Thanks to Patti & Margret..?..it was a beautiful Honeymoon! .we will be back Mr & Mrs Jim & Christine Cummins Homer City,PA

Room Tip: Not a swimming pool..it was a Victorian high tub.... ;). Or a Hugh glass shower. No Fitness Cen...
