Bed & Breakfast at Oliver Phelps
Ranked #8 of 15 Canandaigua B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 9, 2011

Jack and Donna were wonderful, knowledgeable hosts for us. We wanted to road bike in the Canandaigua area. They provided us with great choices to bike along with route maps and suggestions for water and food along the way. The area is biking friendly with wide shoulders on most of the roads and not much traffic. The Oliver Phelps BB is relaxing, with a water garden to read by and a great hot tub for relaxation. The breakfasts were scrumptious and special. We'd love to come back!

Stayed here two nights for a couples' getaway - very relaxing and comfortable. We experienced great hospitality from the owners...and truly enjoyed our experience. Breakfast is not to be missed!

We stayed for two nights in the Greencrest room and could not be more pleased with this b & b. The innkeepers were hospitable, relaxed, and attentive. We came to the area with little knowledge of the local wineries, but Jack had excellent suggestions that made for a perfect day out. Each day the breakfasts were delicious, especially the stuffed croissant, which was sublime. Jack and Donna serve these breakfasts using antique and vintage tableware, which adds a special touch to an already lovely experience. On the second day we had breakfast out on the deck surrounded by hibiscus plants and other pretty foliage.

The property is conveniently located on the main drag of the town, within walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants. The traffic can get a little noisy if you're a light sleeper, though.

Our first B & B. We traveled for a living and are now retired. Jack and Donna could not have made us feel more at home if we were family. The room and accomindations were outstanding. The breakfast was gourmet way beyond our expectations. Jack was spot on with his recommendations for his "things to do" in the area. We will be back!

Jack and Donna are very gracious hosts. We've stayed here for FLPAC concerts (Crosby, Stills & Nash; Moody Blues; and now Steely Dan). Jack always knows about the music and tries to have a pertinent CD playing in the background at breakfast. This year we are staying in the Suite. The house is great and has it's own history to show you. The breakfasts are sinfully delicious! Restaurant recommendations have always worked out well. We have enjoyed the casual conversation w/ Jack & Donna.

A side note about the one negative review: I believe that guest was just not willing to follow the B&B rules. Look at all the other reviews and I think you get a true picture of a wonderful B&B experience. Eric & Bonnie

My wife and I just spent a wonderful weekend in Canandaigua, NY at the B&B at Oliver Phelps. Conveniently located on N. Main Street, the inn is a short walk to all the splendid village of Canandiagua has to offer. The Inn itself is a beautiful, comfortable Victorian which is immaculately kept. We stayed in the Phelps Suite which is a large bedroom with cozy fireplace and a very spacious bathroom with body massage jets in the shower. This, combined with the Gazebo covered outdoor jacuzzi, gave us a spa-like experience to enhance our romantic weekend. Our hosts, Jack and Donna, were available to meet our every need. They are also very knowledgable of the surrounding area and offer helpful suggestions for dining and other events. Breakfasts were amazing! The common areas of the inn are warm and inviting. We recommend the B&B at Oliver Phelps to anyone visiting the finger lakes region--you won't be disappointed.
