The Chalet of Canandaigua
Ranked #1 of 15 Canandaigua B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 24, 2009

This is a beautiful B&B in a beautiful setting. It has woods in the back and a pond in the front. The public areas and our room were lovely and unique - modern in a log cabin. We enjoyed having a large tub and a separate large shower. The breakfast was delicious - creative and well cooked, including the best scone I've ever had. And the innkeepers made us feel that we were visiting friends. They made sure we went to good restaurants and helped us plan our day. I've stayed in many B&B's, and this one has it all - facility, food and hospitality.

Coming from Cleveland, and being a first time visitor to the Finger Lakes region, we relied on our Garmin completely to get us to this destination. However, Garmin failed and did not recognize the address we entered. We were getting very frustrated, but when I called our host, she was so helpful! She stayed on the cell phone line with us the whole time giving us step by step directions, making sure we arrived safely. The house is absolutely amazing and well worth the initial aggravation. (They put a ton of work into this house and it shows!!!) The rooms are spacious, the shower was absolutely amazing...and the food was that of a gourmet chef. My husband is somewhat of a picky eater...and they made sure the menu suited his tastes. If you are looking for a relaxing, picturesque atmosphere... it doesn't get much better than this. The hosts are very knowledgeable about the area and did whatever they could to make our stay a pleasant one. Would definitely come back for a return visit. The only suggestion I have, and it is a minor one, is upgrading the toilet tissue.

We'd booked a 2 night stay at The Chalet in the Balcony room as part of our tour of New York State but loved the place so much we changed our itinerary so that we could stay an extra night in the Woodsview Suite. Both rooms were superbly appointed and extremely well equipped. We booked the place after reading the excellent review in Frommer's New York State (2009 Edition) and if anything, The Chalet exceeded our expectations. Having stayed in more than a dozen B&B's and Inns throughout New England and New York State, this is without doubt our favourite, and by some way. The place is spotless, the food superb, and hospitality second to none. Margaret and Pattie make you feel so welcome you feel at home the minute you arrive . If you're visiting the area do yourself a favour and stay here....if it wasn't for the 2 hour drive to Heathrow, 7 hour flight to JFK and 5 hour drive to The Chalet we'd be back next weekend!

The Chalet is absolutely gorgeous! A very romantic destination - outstanding accommodations, with attention to every detail, and no element overlooked. Patti and Margaret are fantastic hosts - you will feel at ease and relaxed. The nighttime snacks are a very nice touch and the breakfast is absolutely fantastic! I could not have asked for a better experience. This was my first experience at a bed & breakfast, and I must say that the Chalet has set the bar extremely high. We will definitely be return vistors!!! I would recommend this place to anyone seeking a truly great and memorable romantic getaway!!!

Our Anniversary stay at The Canandaigua Chalet was a celebration! Upon deciding where to stay, we took notice of all the other great reviews documented about the Chalet and so held high expectations about our stay, however, let it be known that our actually experience was far better than anticipated. Ditto Plus! First of all, the ladies who run this establishment are “people pleasers” so; we were treated as if we were royalty - no kidding. Hence, the number one highlight of the Chalet is the way in which you will be treated. Secondly, the grounds and the Chalet itself are well-maintained, luxurious, if not extravagant, and beautiful. The scenic entrance drives you up deep into the wooded landing above the lush green fields and past a picturesque pond surrounded with huge weeping willows and inhabited by many songbirds. We actually encountered a colorful flock of Winged-Migration geese. The grounds are visually comparable to an enchanted story-book created to make you feel good, clean, safe and blessed. Thirdly, the food and presentation is truly worth bringing your appetite as well as your camera to breakfast. It is all that festive and good! The hosts are generously meticulous about offering the most delightful flavors and aromas together transforming breakfast into an experience rather than merely a meal. Addressing once again our hosts; we were totally impressed with the extent in which and the quality of the information and suggestions for us to tap into while there in the lovely Finger Lakes. They steered us towards exactly what we were looking for as they listen carefully to what we said and responded to us. We loved the area also. The town and lake of Canandaigua is an apparent prosperous community in which people are legitimately happy. The natural beauty of the entire area was all together more than we realized until then and now, knowing of this place called the Finger Lakes in Upstate New York, and personally spending time at The Chalet of Canandaigua and meeting Margaret and Pattie, we can make fact of the delightful experience we now share herein with you. We recommend this Bed and Breakfast very highly. So put away your passports and see what the beautiful Upstate New York area has to offer.

We spent a weekend at the Chalet with our family (parents and siblings), and had an absolutely great time. We were able to rent out all 3 bedrooms, so had the entire place to ourselves. The decor and atmosphere was very inviting. The outdoor appearance is that of a large modern log cabin, well designed and attractive. It has a spacious outdoor deck, where breakfast is served, and plenty of common sitting areas to relax, watch TV or movies (flat screen LCD TV w/ DVD player in the family room, with a DVD library), play chess or cards.

The bedrooms were very well decorated, and had everything you could want or expect. In fact, there were nice little bonuses, including a personal coffee maker (individual cartridge type), mini-refrigerator stocked with soft drinks and water, and spare toiletries. Each has its own bathroom; some had both a spacious shower with multiple shower heads and a large sized tub. The beds were very soft. One bedroom had an additional large pullout sofabed.

Your hosts are Margaret and Pattie - both very friendly, thoughtful, and full of ideas of what to do, where to visit, and where to eat in Canandaigua. They made us feel completely welcome and at home. When we asked about tennis courts, they took the time to ask around and printed out directions to parks with tennis courts. They took the time to get to know us, and were always asking if there was anything else we needed. The breakfasts they cooked were great - full of flavor and imagination; not just typical eggs and toast for breakfast. We were served a full 3 courses each morning, personally served outdoors on the deck. Fresh home made banana bread, waffles, eggs benedict with portobello mushrooms, fresh fruit. Plenty of coffee, tea, juice. They were also very accommodating of special diet needs and preferences (vegetarians). Also, they provided complimentary homebaked desserts each evening (e.g. fresh mixed berry pie).

The location is also convenient; a few miles away from Canandaigua town center, about 10 minutes or less drive. Very quiet and peaceful location, a true "getaway." The grounds are well-kept, with a large pond.

All in all, we had an excellent time staying at the Chalet. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed at the Chalet on May 10th 2008 for a night away. We were pleasently surprised by the grounds of the Chalet, but even more impressed by the Chalet and the women who run the B&B. We stayed in the Lee Suite and everything was just perfect. The overstuffed king size bed with luxourious bedding, flat screen tv, 2 person soaking tub, 2 person shower. Everything was perfect! Patty, Maggie and Missy (their dog) make you feel right at home as soon as you walk through the front door.

The 3 course breakfast the following morning was the best we have ever had. Homemade wild berry scones, cheese and portobello mushroom stuffed tomatoes, and Bananas Foster!

The women who run the Chalet have thought of everything for their guests stay. We can't wait to go back again!

If you are looking for a night away and love the woods then this Chalet is for you!
