Suzanne was MADE to be an innkeeper :) We arrived fairly early, just a few minutes after check i time, and she was ready with a smile on her face & cookies & lemonade. Gave us a great tour of the house & then let us have some time to unwind. When we came downstairs about thirty minutes later, she was more than happy to give us her opinion of which Wine Trail to do the next day (we had planned on Cayuga - did Keuka on her recommendation and glad we did) and chatted with us for a bit.
The inn is quite lovely. Most of the pieces have a story, so don't be afraid to ask. We stayed in a queen sized room on the 2nd floor, with the four poster bed & the Alice in Wonderland theme. The only issue we had was water temperature in the shower, but that's just a price you pay for staying in an old home, I've found. I'm pretty good at hearing water rustling elsewhere and know to jump out of the way. Also enjoyed the side porch...plenty of comfortable seats, copies of local menus, afternoon treats, and the perfect place to enjoy a bottle of wine at the end of the day.
Very convenient to downtown (just a few blocks from plenty of restaurants & shops) and probably a 15-20 minute walk from the museum.
Breakfast the next morning was as expected. Homemade muffins with delicious homemade marmalade...a hot breakfast dish (we had some sort of fresh toast)...fresh fruit & cereal. Plenty to fill my belly.
Wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Rosewood the next time we are in the Finger Lakes.
