The Ellwanger was recommended by a contact at the Univ. of Rochester. My husband and I love staying at B and B's. Wow, was this a treat. I grew up in Rochester and didn't know this gem existed. This trip was a pleasure/business trip, especially for my husband who needed to work. Rosemary was wonderful. She was extremely attentive to making our stay very comfortable from accomodations, meals and treats as well as recommending restaurants in the area. We hope to return when the gardens are in bloom. Frankly, I think this probably the nicest B and B we've stayed at since we started stayinmg in B a nd B's. Ellen K
