Well you can certainly add our names to the list of guests who will strive to come back. It is hard to add anything new to the list of accolades this property has received in these reviews and rightfully so and here's why:
The breakfast is just splendid! Lynne and Bill work as a team to provide the guests with a full course meal that showcases locally grown fresh products in season, with a farm to table committment and approach. All the guests are requested to be down for breakfast at 9:00 or 9:30 am. You join other guests at the large tables so the whole atmosphere encourages visitors to sit and linger over coffee and conversation before, during, and after the meal as a sort of appetizer for your days' activities.
Their recommendations are right on the money. This was our first trip to the Finger Lakes and Bill's advice on what to go see, complete with maps, and Lynne's suggestions on where to eat lovely dinners were appreciated very much. I will pass along to all you readers that the Inspire Moore winery and Monica's Pie Shop were our favorite stops on an all day circle tour of Lake Canandaigua. Both are in nearby Naples and Bill had suggested them.
The location is 4 or 5 blocks walking distance to all the downtown antique shops, specialty shops, and restaurants for dinner if you care to experience the town of Canandaigua on foot. There are lovely homes and churches to admire along the way.
And of course the house, grounds, and guest rooms. We were in the Greencrest Room and that was quite comfortable for the 2 of us. We enjoyed a bottle of local wine on the back deck before dinner one evening. Most women would just love to have Lynne's kitchen set up!
Looking for an excuse to get back to the Finger Lakes and the Oliver Phelps House!
