Our stay at the Genesee Country Inn was planned very spontaneously, and with the help of reviews on Trip Advisor. We reserved the McGinnis Room as it had the newly renovated bathroom and a fireplace. After discussion with Deborah re our concerns about a previous review, (the person complained about a musty smell in the room, that it was in the "basement" and had a view of the parking lot and construction next door) Deborah assured us that she did have other rooms available should we have ANY reservations about the room and wanted to change our minds once we got there. (luckily we were there in the off season, as this may not have been an option otherwise). We are so glad we stuck to our original plan, as we felt the concerns were unfounded. The Inn is 200 years old after all, has the original stone walls and is filled with antiques...one must expect a certain "ambiance"! The room WAS on a lower level than street level, as the property slopes down towards the creek at the back. We had a lovely deck off of our room with new sliding doors. We would have loved to sit out there with our morning coffee or later in the day with a glass of wine, however because of the time of year, it wasn't possible. The small parking lot access was off of the walkway to the 3 rooms on that level, but this wasn't an issue for us,in fact, we found it very convenient. The grounds are lovely and the location quiet. Mumford is a very quaint village with an abundance of antique shops. Deborah and Richard were very welcoming and helpful, arranging dinner reservations for us, and suggesting activities in the Finger Lakes area. It was very much appreciated as this was our first time there. The breakfasts were substantial and very yummy, and the coffee and tea service endless. We personally would have like more fresh fruit available. We would definitely return again, and actually discussed the feasibiltiy of booking all 10 rooms for a family event.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Genesee Country Inn Bed and Breakfast, built in 1833in Mumford near Rochester, New York, is situated on Spring Creek, a trout stream where guests can enjoy private fly fishing or relax by the mill pond. The inn has ten distinctly, comfortably decorated bedrooms, all with private baths, air-conditioning, telephones, hair dryers, and TV/DVD players. The king suite enjoys a beautiful view of the gardens, fountain, and mill pond. The garden rooms have gas fireplaces and a view of the creek. Guests enjoy the comfort of a large parlor, dining room with a gas fireplace, and a beautiful all season sun room with gas stove. During the 1800s, the inn was a plaster mill and later a lumber mill. Around 1917, this lovely old mill with its 2 1/2-foot thick stone walls was converted to a two-family home. It wasn't until 1982 that the Garbutt Mill, which was a private residence, became the Genesee Country Inn. The inn is close to Rochester, Letchworth State Park, Niagara Falls, many museums, art galleries, colleges and universities. Also The Genesee Country Village and Museum, less than a mile from the inn, is the third largest living museum in the country where visitors can experience craftsmen demonstrating the trades of life in the 1800s. ... more less
