My daughter and I spent 1 night at the Mansion District Inn on the way back from dropping my son at college. MDI is exceptional in every way - the public rooms are dramatic, yet very comfortable. Our bedrooms (we had the third floor suite) were amazing - terrific antique furniture, incredibly comfortable beds, total quiet. And I can't say enough about the hospitality of Jovanna and Ross. They are the most welcoming innkeepers that I have encountered over many years of staying at B&Bs, both extremely interesting themselves, and also very interested in their guests. As we were the only guests at the inn that night, Jovanna gave us a tour of all of the rooms and we were able to choose among them, which was very accommodating. We immediately felt totally at home in their lovely inn. Ross and Jovanna were also very knowledgeable about the Smethport area, as well as nearby towns. The breakfast was outstanding - homemade biscotti, broiled grapefruit and pancakes with local blueberries - easily the best meal of our trip. I plan to stop in Smethport and MDI whenever I have the chance.
