“Great place!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at the Canal Lamp Inn so we could visit our family in the Rochester Area. The staff was professional and the Victorian house was decorated beautifully for the Holidays. We had lots of privacy and enjoyed the cozy surroundings. The breakfasts are fantastic. There is no wifi most of the time. We will definitely be back.

Stayed December 2013

Location was perfect for our biking trip on the Erie Barge Canal trail. House was very nice, bedrooms spacious and beds comfortable however if you are expecting a typical B&B you will be disappointed. There is no resident host so you have the very spacious house to yourself. Someone (different person each of the 2 days we were there) will come in to prepare breakfast. There is no facility to make your own early morning coffee, and although internet is advertised, no access code is provided. There is no information how to get into the house, only a telephone # to call (if you have a cell phone!) There was no local information available although Schoen Place across the road have a number of good places to eat, we enjoyed the Coal Tower and Alladin's, and McCarthy's in the lovely town of Pittsford. We have since contacted the owner with basically a "no comment" reply.

Room Tip: All rooms are very spacious

This is one of the loveliest Bed and Breakfasts that I know. The rooms are very nicely done; the location right on the canal with miles of walking paths; and absolutely delicious breakfast. I would recommend this whole-heartedly over any hotel in the area, if you like B & B.

We arrived to this house and spent the first hour walking around oohing and ahhing. Its just gorgeous and has a beautiful old world feel with special little touches throughout the house. The property is tucked away along a canal just beside the main street of Pittsford. Breakfast was out of this world! I can't say enough about the place. Would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Master bedroom is amazing

We really enjoyed this old house with all modern conveniences - wonderful baths with showers & baths. Breakfasts were incredible and more than enough to eat. I am not a B&B fan, but this was great.

We had a wonderful time in this exquisite Victorian mansion along the Erie Canal. One can actually feel the history of the Canal, along with the natural habitat which has sprung up as a result of the canal.
The rooms were spacious and luxurious, with modern conveniences. The breakfast was very good prepared by the homes caretaker; the host was not present which added to the privacy of the experience. We appreciated the serenity of the surroundings. We went on the Erie Canal packet boat tour which was just a few steps away. The tour was very educational and enjoyable. Would definitely stay there again!

Yes it is true you don't see the owners but they were easily reachable by telephone. The rooms where beautiful and the home was huge and we had it all to ourselves for most of the time. The breakfasts were amazing. The location was great since it was right next to the canal. It was a fantastic experience. We will be staying there again.

Room Tip: Yes the front room faces the road so it can be a bit noisy in the morning but it really didn't b...
