My parents and I had a great trip to Canandaigua to visit family for the holiday weekend and the Inn was a perfect place to stay. The room was very comfortable, the breakfasts were terrific and the hosts were very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend the Inn on the Main.

David, It was a pleasure to host your family, and I'm glad the Burrell Room worked out for you with the sofa bed to accommodate a 3rd person. We both hope, should you return for another family visit, you will think of us again. Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Jaynee & Guy

Only had the time for a single night stay, but was a fantastic night away from our young kids. The room and bed were comfortable and well appointed. Location was excellent. Breakfast was perfect. It was the stay we imagined and spent hours researching prior to booking.

Hey, Rochester is just a skip and a jump away from us, but many travelers come to unwind, reconnect, and enjoy the wonders of Canandaigua Lake, and our historic little city. We do hope when you need another getaway, you will consider 1840 Inn on the Main again. Jaynee & Guy

My wife and I have traveled to many places and found the hospitality of our hosts to be second to none. The property was beautifully maintained and the accommodations were charming and very romantic.

The owners went out of their way to accommodate my husband and I. I had a swim at 8am and before I left there was a bagel and coffee waiting for me! Kind, humble people. Dinner reservations we're make within 30 minutes of arrival. Perfect place for Amy occasion!

We stayed two nights and plan to return for more in the future. The suite was great, the breakfasts were fantastic, and Jaynee and Guy were wonderfully welcoming. Grab a bottle of a nice Finger Lakes wine, sip while you sit out on the porch on a warm summer evening, and you'll wish time could stand still!

The owners of the 1840 Inn on the Main Bed and Breakfast do a wonderful job. We all felt very comfortable, the house is beautiful, they made dinner reservations and made the absolutely right suggestions for things we should do, that turned out to be better than we had planned. Perfect for couples who want to reconnect.
