“Great Escape”
Reviewed June 4, 2009

We have been using the Polly Harper Inn Bed and Breakfast for our getaway retreats for the last five years and find the owners very accommodating. Whenever we first arrive, or return from visiting the surrounding wineries, the room is spotless and well maintained. We have always felt that we come to a well manicured room. The breakfasts that are provided makes the stay even more enjoyable. The table setting as well compliments the owners. Because the owners are third generation grape growers, we have found them both very knowledgeable regarding the area and we look to them for new restaurants and wineries to visit.
The area around Geneva is constantly experiencing much growth with its ever expanding fields of grape vines. Lake Erie adds a great atmosphere to this area as well.
This has always been an enjoyable stay for us.

We just returned from a couple of days at the Polly Harper Inn and were disappointed with some aspects of what we had read here and on other sites. The inn is very nicely decorated, very clean, and quiet. The innkeeper Sue was cordial but not interested in directing us to places to visit or eat. The lack of local information or knowledge was surprising and we were glad we had done research before we arrived. The inn sits in the middle of a grape orchard and is very lovely. Many wineries are close by and we enjoyed tasting at many.

Our room was tastefully decorated and very clean. There is a jacuzzi in each room. Please note that there is no separate shower so you have to climb into the jacuzzi to shower. This is a problem for anyone with short legs or physical limitations. This is a big drawback and felt unsafe. Breakfast is homemade bake goods, fruit cups, and custard. If you are a diabetic, better bring along something to suppliment this sugar loaded meal. We expected more for the money we paid and wouldn't stay here again.

  • Liked — Cleanliness
  • Disliked — Sugar loaded breakfast, Unsafe shower in jacuzzi,lack of local information from innkeeper

My husband and I stayed at this beautiful B&B twice in August 2006. The inn is among vast vineyards by the Grand River. Several of the wineries in the area offer wine tasting. The setting is very romantic and very quiet. The B&B is fairly new and no detail has been ommitted.

We stayed in the spacious Polly Harper Room for 1 night, which has a separate dining room. This room also has a lookout tower on top where guests can relax and enjoy their morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. We also stayed in the Robert Harper Room for several nights, which is just as nice as Polly's room, the only difference is it doesn't have the lookout tower.

The B&B has 3 rooms that are all beautifully decorated - not frilly, not overdone, just elegant. You won't be disappointed with any of the 3 rooms.

Susan, the innkeeper, is a very friendly person. She serves a continental breakfast that includes delicious pasteries (usually homemade), cereal, juice, fruit, coffee. Guests have the choice of eating in their room or at the dining table in the kitchen area.

This B&B is a well kept secret!
