A Historic Home Away From Home

5 on August 07, 2016

Beautiful home that reminded me of Rochester from the early 20th century. They upgraded me to the master suite on my arrival. I was staying there for my high school reunion and the location was a short Lyft ride from downtown Rochester. The mother of the owners made me a great breakfast my first morning. I highly recommend the place. The home has such a peaceful presence about it. Very friendly owners. Enjoy your stay:)

weekend getaway

I was skeptical about trying something new & different but Don was great. He allowed me to come view the property before my stay to make sure I was satisfied. I was even more eager after that, I couldn't wait to check in . The home was beautiful and cozy, we stayed in the Tiffany room, I absolutely loved the balcony access from the room straight to the pool, the in-room jacuzzi was a big plus , the skylights in the room are beautiful in the morning & lovely during the rain. lots of nearby places to eat even though you'll never wanna leave!!! Overall I can't wait to visit again thanks Don ~~ Turquoise

Excellent get away. Lovely property close to great restaurants, hiking, biking. Hope to visit again and will recommend to friends and family.


Great location

3.0 on June 01, 2016

Great location--walking distance to town, park, great restaurants. Property could use a little TLC, but rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, and innkeepers lovely to work with. The Tiffany Suite was quite warm each evening, as Michigan was having a warm spell...the air conditioning is piped in via a mini-split which is not very sufficient on warm days after the skylights have let in hot sun all day. By 2am the room would finally cool off. In cooler weather, this would not be a problem, as the screened doors would certainly let in a nice breeze.


Lovely Gathering place

4.0 on April 11, 2016

We rented the three beautiful and unique rooms for a family stay. We had a lot of fun together in the common rooms such as the bar area and the backyard with the basketball and pool table. My daughter loved the hot tub and we loved the suite with an entrance to the house as well as outside. We would definitely recommend this place.


Parks Anniversary

4.4 on January 04, 2015

The place was nice and cozy. The pantry food in the room was something that we didn't eat or drink. Everyone doesn't drink diet pop. We would recommend this place to our friends and will visit again.


Convenient place to stay in Rochester.

3.8 on December 01, 2014

This is a great location at an affordable price. It was perfect for the night before a family gathering on Thanksgiving. The room was small but cozy. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast pantry was well stocked with a wide variety of choices. We will consider this establishment in the future when we are in town.


Anniversary night away

4.2 on October 22, 2014

Stayed at the offsite property that is perfectly situated within walking distance of all the great downtown Rochester shopping bars and restaurants. The queen bed was super comfortable and it was nice to have a mini fridge and snacks right in the room. We had dinner at the Rochester Chop House then did a little bar hopping and loved that we didn't have to do any driving. Would definitely recommend the downtown location to other friends looking for an affordable night away.
