I was a bit nervous about staying at a B&B, but amazingly the experience was something that I am so glad I didn't miss out on! Kevin & Kathryn were extremely gracious hosts. From restaurant and outing suggestions to chating and having a glass of wine, you can just tell that they love giving you a wonderful B&B experience. Breakfast was delicious and even though we stayed in the smallest room in the house, it was more then adequate and quaint for us. We loved it, and hope to return again!

We enjoyed our stay so much it was difficult getting up from the breakfast table to start our day! Food was great and owners were warm, helpful and fun. Great location on Main Street, nicely decorated with beautiful antiques and always coffee and tea in upstairs hallway. Would definately go back.

Great B&B. I imagine it's the nicest place in Canadaigua

We stayed at this lovely and historic (1801) inn for two nights over the weekend of August 2 and had a very nice time. The owners welcomed us on Friday afternoon with a glass of wine and gave us a number of recommendations for dinner. Our room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The private bathroom was roomy and had a great shower. I had a problem operating the AC unit on Saturday morning, but it was looked into immediately and the room was perfect when we arrived back in the afternoon. Breakfast both mornings was delicious, and we enjoyed extended conversation with the owners and other guests. We felt very much at home. The town of Canandaigua is lovely and has many activities and restaurants. It's in the center of the Finger Lakes wine country, so many of the activities and food revolve around the local fare. We would highly recommend the Red Door B&B.

Our stay at The Red Door Inn was magnificent! The Field Room has a large spa-like bathroom and the bed has an extremely comfortable mattress. The summer weather had cooled during our stay and the option of opening the windows allowed the wonderful cool night air to circulate which made sleeping perfect. Our first morning we had an early commitment and Kevin provided a magnificent breakfast to accommodate our early departure. Kevin & Kathryn are exquisite hosts and I am recommending The Red Door Inn to anyone who is looking for a wonderful lodging experience in Canandaigua.

We stayed for a mini vacation on a recent trip to the Finger lakes area. The Inn is thoughtfully restored and furnished by the owners and their labor of love is apparent in every detail. We enjoyed the historic aspect of the home along with the modern amenities the Carsons, Kevin and Kathryn, have included. Our room, the Field, had a rainforest shower and jacuzzi but was furnished with period pieces that did not overwhelm or interfere with comfort. Breakfasts were gourmet but not stuffy. Place settings were gracious but not intimidating. Our hosts made us feel right at home. They were knowledgeable about area attractions and restaurants. We thoroughly enjoyed Kevin's vision for future renovations and Kathryn's attention to details for our comfort. Be sure to stroll the grounds and see the great plantings and water feature seating under a canopy of trees that is very relaxing. We will definitely go back soon.

My husband, daughter and I all three needed a place to stay to explore the New York Finger Lakes area on a family history trip. Kathryn and Kevin had an available room, their biggest room with a very large bathroom, called the Carson Room. An inflatable bed was an option for my 23 year old daughter, so we booked and hoped it would all work.Not only did it work, we had a wonderful few days as we walked through the big red door of the inn. It's hard to pinpoint all the things that made this B&B stay so special, but it had something to do with an overall feeling our hosts created. A beautiful porch for reading, a coffee maker in the hallway upstairs, a comfy King bed, Kevin's killer breakfasts, lovely flowers in the garden that I took photos of, a cozy couch to watch TV on downstairs, and enough room to stretch out and relax. It wasn't a detached, service oriented atmosphere. Instead, they made us truly feel like we were part of their own family. Kevin and Kathryn felt more like long lost siblings or friends more than any sort of innkeepers. They are warm, entertaining and fun people to be around. If privacy IS what you need, I believe their intuition will provide that as well. A diet after your stay might be necessary unless you have strong willpower. You'll enjoy Kevin's breakfast creations and the attention that Kathryn gives you as you eat. omlettes, pancakes, eggs benedict, scones,etc. Delish!!! Once the food is out, we wanted them to sit and talk with us. The most special breakfast though, was when their grandkids spent the night, a recipe for disaster for some perhaps . . . but their grandchildren were so fun to have around. They took our food orders with restaurant order pads. It was a good lesson for them and a lot of fun for us to be waited on by such well behaved polite kiddos!
