I am originally from Western NY, and recall eating at The Asa Ransom House some 30 years ago.We decided to over-night here on our way to the Finger Lakes. The dinner we had met all of our 30 year old expectations, the room was charming, and the breakfast was exceptional.
My recent stay at the Asa Ransom B&B exceeded my expectations with the decor, food (both breakfast and supper) and the general helpfulness of the staff. The only problem that caused frustration for both my husband and me was the extremely feeble wifi that needed repeated refreshing, often every minute or two. If that could be remedied, I would have no problem recommending this B&B very highly.
Very nice. Rooms were great, breakfast was tasty. Dinner was ok but for their definition of fine dining, I expected more especially in the service area. Really nice area in the back for sitting.
This was our first visit to a bed and breakfast, a gift from our daughter for my husband's 60th birthday. We loved the experience and the place and proprietors were exceptional. We look forward to staying there again.
Our room was cozy, the bed comfortable. We loved the extra touches; fruit & cheese, although bottle water would of been better than the filtered. Since we did not have dinner I can not comment; however, the breakfast was tasty and filling. We loved that the place was close to the airport.
Over the Thanksgiving holiday, my fiancee and I stayed two nights at the Asa Ransom House's spacious Wilson Greatbatch Room. The room features a very comfortable king-sized bed, antique furniture, cozy sofa, closet (ah, the plush robes!), bathroom, and fireplace (perfect for a cold night in Western New York). When we arrived at the inn, Bob gave us a tour of the room and provided us with fresh fruit and water. The bathroom was well-stocked with supplies and had excellent ventilation. The inn is a historic property full of quaint country charm and wonderful to explore. Breakfast at the Asa Ransom House took place in the main Dining Room, and there was a nice selection of choices each morning. We also enjoyed a fine dinner there as well. The inn offers fantastic value, and I highly recommend it for anyone visiting the Buffalo area.
The Asa Ransom House is perfect in every sense of the word. Mr. Lentz and his daughter Abigail provide a home away from home atmosphere with their hospitable rooms which includes a wonderful welcome basket of NYS fruit and cheeses, in-room CD player with CDs ranging from jazz to Broadway to classical music, to well appointed rooms. Breakfast was outstanding every morning. And the evening dinner was exquisite with the dining room fully booked on weekdays by locals coming into the restaurant. I have recommended the Asa Ransom House to friends, colleagues, and professional associates and everyone has concurred that this is the greatest value & BEST B & B in the Upstate NY/ Western NY area!

My husband and I stayed at the Asa Ransom house on the first leg of our honeymoon trip...3 glorious nights! It was also our first B&B experience ever. I was wary at first because of the reputation of a lot of B&Bs to overdo it with the antiques and frilly bedding/wallpaper, but Asa was perfect; it has fantastic accomodations (LOVED the bathroom and fireplace in our suite) and I don't even need to mention the delicious food. We told everyone about it when we got home to Illinois, and to this day, I crave their pastries in the morning. I've used Asa Ransom House as my guide to picking other B&Bs, and none have compared since. I'd go back tomorrow just so I can hold tat giant keyring again!
We were trying to decide what to do to celebrate our anniversary and we checked out the Asa Ransom web-site! After seeing the rooms and reading up on the Inn---we knew that is where we would go, From the phone call to reserve a room---to our check-out, everything was handled in a friendly and professional manner. The Saturday evening "feast" was wonderful as was our server, Anne. Our hostess, Abigail, was also very hospitable and friendly. I would definitely recommend Asa Ransom House to friends and family and we look forward to visiting again. Rich & Shirley Landseadel
Married late in life (we were both widowed), my husband of 2 yrs. wanted something special for our Anniversary. We had a sumptuous gourmet meal and stayed overnight in one of the quaint bedrooms. We ordered a Romance package and received a bottle of wine of our choice, a plate of fruit, cheese & crackers in our room and a bouquet of flowers on our dining table. They also discreetly put a candle in our dessert. No singing or unwanted attention. Just class all the way. Would we go back? Most definitely!!
Asa Ransom is the B&B by which we judge all other B&B with and so far we have not found one that exceeds the quality and comfort we find at Asa Ransom. We truly feel like pampered guests whenever we stay. Thank you!
Lovely rooms with all the amenities one expects, plus bowl of fruit with cheese and crackers when are you arrive and bag of just made cookies when you leave. Wonderful gourmet breakfast included. Inn belongs to 'Green' hotels.
Found the Asa Ransom House on this website. Spoke to a friend from the area and said it was well known in the Buffalo area. We loved it! My husband and I stayed in room #5 (king size bed) and felt very comfortable during our stay. We both enjoyed the breakfasts -I especially liked the homemade granola. They also will provide you with a to-go box if you have to leave early. Our room was refreshed every day. I especially liked that every room had a private entrance so if you came in late you wouldn't be disturbing anyone. OH...and George was a sweetheart! We'd stay again if vacationing in the area!
We spent two days at the Asa Ransom House and it was absolutely wonderful. The Inn is beautiful, the food superb, and the people in the town of Clarence are very friendly. Our room was full of awsome furniture and extras!
