Our family returned to stay at this lovely gem of an inn for the second time across a three year period. We like to ski at Bristol Mountain and this bed and breakfast is very close to the hill. It is also near Canadaigua in upstate New York, and there are some fun places to eat in this town. Sheryl will put on a delicious breakfast that is elegantly presented with stemware, linens and fine china...candelight at breakfast can't be beat! Her creme brulee french toast is spectacular. This is a place for adults and very well behaved older children- while it is a bed and breakfast it should also be honoured as an oasis away from la vie moderne...there are fireplaces and cosy places to curl up and read. We have always enjoyed the hot tub in the little sanctuary garden, some fine wine, and beautiful views of the mountain apres ski. The only drawback is that you need to drive to get to a place for dinner, but this is hardly a hardship. I would return here across the seasons to experience the beauty of the area from a different perspective...this is wine country and one gets the feel that a driving trip around the finger lakes would be an ideal way to spend a week. A perfect place to perch for a day or two or more if this is your sort of respite.
