Lynne and Bill were fantastic hosts. They were full of helpful tips for visiting the area - including restaurant menus, maps, and books. Lynne's breakfasts were outstanding. My husband requires gluten-free food, and Lynne completely spoiled him - she even made him gluten- free cookies every day! I cannot recommend staying here enough. We are already planning on going back again.

Beautiful home, lovely and knowledgeable hosts, delicious breakfast and very nice room. Too bad we could only stay one night.

Our main interests in visiting Canandaqua and the Finger Lakes were bicycling, wine tasting, and good food. Staying at the Phelps House provided a fantastic staging area to accomplish all three tasks. Also, it is within walking distance of the main part of town which was very convenient. Bill and Lynne provided a wonderful homey atmosphere that allowed us the opportunity to reach our goals for our short visit. Bill has bike routes preplanned that include waypoints for wine tasting at the vineyards and also highlights of places to visit while out exploring the area. Bill also provided plenty of good advise on places to eat...he missed his calling as concierge (I'm kidding you Bill). Always prepared with local knowledge which made the trip very enjoyable. Lynne's breakfasts were wonderful...using the local fare as her main ingredients. Never left the table hungry and we always looked forward to seeing what would be served the next morning (posted on a chalk board by the steps every afternoon...nice touch). I'm told that she keeps track of what was served on previous visits and never serves the same breakfast to repeat lodgers....Eggs Benedict for our next visit, please. Lynne and Bill certainly reinforced our concept of why we enjoy visiting B&B's on our trips. The house is decorated in a Victorian fashion and tastefully done which gives one the impression of what it would be like to live in a home of that era. Of course, not sacrificing comfort, as the beds were extremely comfortable and cable and wireless internet were also available....isn't that what we're trying to get away from on these trips though? I know, we can survive without the cable but not the internet, right? Great job, Bill and Lynne, and we will definitely return and hope to be able to stay in your lovely home again. (Practice up on TSS, Bill as it might rain on our next visit!) Kerry and Eric

Beautiful well maintained historical charming B and B.Host/hostess Extremely friendly and attuned to guests needs. Gourmet breakfast excellent. Inn keepers very knowledgeable about the history of Canandaidua and surrounding area. A Must place to stay for several days while you explore the city and area, including the wine and bike tours. A variety of guests made the visit a real plus.

Lynne and Bill are exceptional hosts and very knowledgeable about the area. The Inn is very comfortable, clean and well kept. The food was incredible. You won't need lunch after one of the breakfasts they serve! I will definitely recommend it to my friends and stay here again the next time I visit the Finger Lakes.

Lynne and Bill are wonderful! The rooms are beautiful, the breakfast and cookies were beyond excellent. Warm welcome and it continued for the six nights I stayed with them. I will be back with them next year!

This was a last minute find. The town of Canandaigua is fascinating. We enjoyed walking from the B and B to town and the lake and ate at a cafe next to the Lake. We stayed 2 nights and had 2 great breakfasts. The owners, Lynne and Bill were very helpful in making the arrangements. Due to flights, we arrived after 11 pm and Bill met us with a smile and help. Would love to go again.

I returned to the Oliver Phelps for the third time and it was definitely a charm. I enjoy staying with Lynne and Bill. They are both kind and hospitable hosts. Bill greets me in the driveway and assists with my luggage. Lynne greets me inside and welcomes me back. They treat me like family. I stayed in 3 different rooms and all are comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. Breakfasts are delicious and made with local food products which Lynne mentions. The hot tub is a nice feature in a pretty garden setting. The living room is a lovely place to relax. I appreciate all the extras that Lynne and Bill offer like afternoon and evening iced and hot tea and home made baked goods. I received a thoughtful thank you note and a treat the second time I stayed with Lynne and Bill. I highly recommend this lovely B&B. Canandaigua is a scenic town and there is much to do in the area. I look forward to returning to the Oliver Phelps.
