My best friend and I had the good fortune to select Ophelia's Garden Inn for a 3-day vacation stay as we explored the Erie Canal. The house is beautiful and furnished with exquisite taste, with decorations that are unique, appealing, and perfect in their setting. Our breakfasts were delicious, nutritious, and visually appealing, and our hosts made every effort to ensure that our stay was pleasant. For us, one of the most enjoyable aspects of our stay was the beautiful garden in back: we spent lo-o-o-ong hours reminiscing in the afternoons and into the evening, sitting on the porch and patio and enjoying the absolute peace of the setting. Even in the downpour of rain we experienced one evening, we stayed on the porch enjoying the view, including the deer who strolled along the edge of the yard and into the trees beyond.
My best friend of 60 years has mulitple sclerosis and we found that the gorgeous rooms on the first floor accommodated us perfectly; our hosts, again, were very attentive to our special needs and made this vacation absolutely HEAVEN! I highly recommend this Inn to anyone who enjoys peace, warm hospitality, and a beautiful setting in a location so close to the center of a city.

Located on the edge of Tipperary Hill, the Inn is surrounded by parks....an arboretum across the street on one side, a golf course and zoo on the other side and the back side of a nine acre park.

Bicyclists not only enjoy the safe keeping of their bikes in the spacious garage, but after a long day can find two outstanding restaurants within walking distance. This hidden gem is a great place to unwind, relax and take in the beauty that surrounds you. We cater to your special dietary needs. Come enjoy our Labor of Love. ... more less
