My husband and I decided to stay on the fly and of course Linda was very receptive to our needs! She made us feel welcomed! Coming in the winter was exquisite, fireplace, large sitting room, jacuzzi tub and PRIVACY! Her breakfast was so deliciously prepared. She even was attentive to my dairy issues and made two different delectable dishes for...

We had a lovely weekend and our host Linda Maltese served us the most incredible breakfasts. The scenery was terrific especially the long walk through the woods on the property and spotting a couple of deer just made it that made nicer. Our room was both comfortable and charming with a sitting room and ensuite. We were in the Lakeview...

We had a wonderful time at Onanda by the Lake and will definitely return the next time we go to the Finger Lakes. The house is charming and very nicely decorated.Our hostess, Linda, couldn't have been nicer and her breakfasts were very tasty. Our view of Lake Canandaigua was beautiful.

Onanda by the Lake is a gorgeous place with spacious, comfortable rooms, charming décor, a sprawling property with a hiking trail and secluded patios, just across from beautiful Canandaigua Lake (and 5 minutes' walk to a lakefront park with swimming and picnicking). Linda, the proprietor, is herself charming and welcoming, not to mention exceedingly attentive to detail and decorum. Everything...

My wife and I had a wonderful weekend getaway at Onanda by the Lake. We stayed in the Woodlands Suite, which had a great (screened) all-season room over-looking a nice, wooded yard. This was a nice quiet area to read and relax. The B&B does not have direct water-access, but you can take about a 3-minute walk down the road...

A peaceful setting and wonderful accommodations equal the beautiful serenity of Canandaigua Lake and the entire Finger Lake region. The home is stately, yet cozy and quaint. The innkeepers have attended to your every request before you even think to ask. The detail and decor of the home leave you know option but to surrender to the the tranquility of...

We recently booked the Lake View Suite for a couple of days, but at the last minute needed to arrive a day early. Linda, the gracious inn keeper, was very accommodating and allowed us to arrive early even though it was her day off. The Lake View Suite was very nice. The suite was clean and well appointed. The bed...

My husband and I recently stayed here for one night (June 28) and really enjoyed our stay. This place is a little out of the way, but the property is lovely and has a beautiful view of lake Canandaigua. We had called ahead to say we would be arriving later than expected (around 11pm) so the owner explained parking and...

This beautiful bed and breakfast was exactly what I was looking for when planning a weekend getaway. I have never been to the Finger Lakes before and didn't really know what to expect, however we were pleasantly surprised with everything it had to offer. During our stay we stayed in the Woodlands suite. It had a comfortable cottage feel with...

This is a beautiful house in a location with breathtaking views of Lake Canandaigua and with forest trails behind the property leading to a park with an overview of the lake. The B&B itself is lovely. Linda is a generous host, who upgraded us to a room with ensuite bath and a sitting room because the room was not occupied...
