We were only in town for one night, and staying here was perfect. Beautiful old house, elegantly decorated, but also felt very homey. Very large bedroom, with desk/chaise so we could both get some work and reading done. Bathroom was spotless, had toiletries for us to use which was a nice touch. We didn't have much time, but the living room looked like it would a nice place to hang out if staying longer and tea/cookies were available. Most importantly for me, the park ave neighborhood is the loveliest part of Rochester, and staying in one of the old houses is the best way to make the most of the charm. The only cons are that the mattress could have been plusher and the walls were pretty thin.

Stayed: December 2012, traveled as a couple

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our property. We love the neighborhood as well!
We are terribly sorry you didn't like the mattress - it's a top of the line pillow top from Serta. We will be happy to check into that for you to see what the problem might be. Hope to see you both again in the near future!

From the moment we walked in the door we knew we were going to experience perfection. We were warmly greeted by Susan and then taken to our gorgeous and immaculate room. And there was a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries awaiting us. The location was perfect and we were able to take the suggestion of our host and walk to a wonderful restaurant, Park Ave Pub, just a few blocks away. The George Eastman House is also an easy walk and we enjoyed seeing the beautiful decorations there.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would give it a five star rating. We would definitely return!

I stayed at the Edward Harris House for two nights while in town for a teaching conference. I had a great stay and loved going back to a cozy room rather than a chain hotel after long days of presenting and attending workshops. The room was beautifully decorated with an en suite private bath. The neighborhood is charming and convenient to downtown Rochester. Breakfast was delicious and the staff was accommodating and so friendly. I look forward to making return trips in future years.

This was our second stay at the Edward Harris House Inn. We spent four nights this time during the week of Thanksgiving. It is right around the corner from my daughter's apartment and withing easy walking distance of restaurants on Park, the Eastman House on East Ave. and the museum on University. The room was spacious and appointed with all we needed. King size bed, great shower, comfortable reading chair and good lighting for reading. Breakfast was served at our convenience and was delicious. The French toast made from croissants were yummy. No need for lunch. Susan, Manny and Heather are excellent hosts and they see to every detail. I loved that there was a hot pot on the second floor landing so that I could have tea when I wanted it. We will stay there every time we visit Rochester.

This is a fantastic bed and breakfast. My husband and I stayed here on Friday night and will be back the next time we are in Rochester. I grew up in Rochester and never knew this place existed until recently. We were back in town to visit family and stayed in Emily's Suite. Our room was beautifully decorated and filled with comfy chairs, a desk and an extremely comfortable king bed. There were snacks and water upon our arrival and we felt very at home. Our bathroom had a lovely deep bathtub and plenty of fluffy towels and extra amenities. Every detail is thought of in this B&B and the owners clearly enjoy being hosts. Our breakfast the next day was delicious and we truly felt like we found a very special place to stay.

We resevered here because it was closer to the venue and spectacularly much nicer between East and Park, then anywhere inside the loop.
This is an excellent location in Rochester, a very beautiful part of town. We had dinner around the corner on Park at Jine's on our way to the show. We walked, or you could call a cab, to see
Joe Bonamassa LIVE at the Rochester Theater tonight !
What a show! This B&B was the icing on the cake !

My two girlfriends and I just returned home to Houston, Texas after spending three amazing nights at The Edward Harris House in Rochester, NY. As an avid traveler, I can honestly say that this is one of the best B&B's I have ever been to. From the moment we stepped foot onto the beautiful property until the moment we left, we were surrounded by such warmth and friendliness. Susan, Manny, and Heather have created a magnificent place that provides you with all of the comforts of home while surrounding you with beautiful antiques and decorations. Their attention to detail is unparallelled. The breakfasts were amazing and the endless supply of cookies were an added bonus. If I am ever in the area again, I will definitely plan to stay here!
