We stayed two nights over the holidays and it was amazing! The cottage was decorated beyond our wildest dreams, it was like a Christmas Wonderland. Our breakfasts each morning were delicious and the presentation made it a joy to get up and see what was in store for us. Kathleen and Joe were so friendly and had a extensive knowledge of the area and sent us on great outings.

My wife and I stayed at the Cobblestone Cottage while in town for the holidays. The stay was a real treat from the decor thru the welcoming service. Kathy was very helpful and made the most outstanding breakfast we have had. Anytime in the future we go to the Finger Lakes region we will be sure to stay with them.

I stayed at 1837 Cobblestone Cottage and I can honestly say I have never stayed at a better B&B. This place was just wonderful all the way around. I found out that Kathy and Joe just recently became the new owners of the place. Well let me tell you that they went above and beyond. The place is just in excellent shape. A great downhome feel to the place. It is well maintained. Also the breakfast spreads were just out of this world amazing. I will definitely be recommending this great location to all. Thank you for a great relaxing weekend.

My fiance and I stayed at the Cobblestone Cottage while intown for a family wedding. Kathy made our stay extremely enjoyable! She was great company, a great cook and a great innkeeper! Our room was clean, comfortable and beautiful. The house had enjoyable common areas for us to relax in during our time at the B&B. The B&B has a beautiful view of Canandaigua Lake and is located very close to downtown Canandaigua where we enjoyed some shopping and great restaurants. We highly recomment this B&B to anyone looking to visit Canandaigua!

A perfect get away. Dawn was so welcoming - great energy. We brought our bicycles and took a great ride down West Lake Road. We were able to use the garage to store them. Drove into Canandaigua for dinner - just a few minutes away. Cobblestone Cottage is so Clean and Bright. It really is beautifully decorated and comfortable from the front porches to the guest rooms and all the rooms in between. From the first moment - you feel at home.

Welcoming, open, friendly and well-decorated. Dawn and Tom were terrific hosts and we couldn't have asked for more. Dawn met us on the front porch and instantly made us feel at home. The breakfasts were fantastic and is the only way to start a busy day of walking!
5 on October 23, 2012
Breakfasts were wonderful and both days were enough to carry us through dinner. Grounds are meticulously kept and the place is quite charming. Rooms are spacious, wi fi easily accessed, nice location with regards to downtown. Dawn and Tom are excellent hosts and extremely helpful with dinner recomendations and what wineries to visit. We really enjoyed our stay and will continue to stay here on subsequent visits. Rich and Lisa

Dawn made us feel very welcome and at home in the beautiful cobblestone house. We relaxed on the front porch before a fabulous breakfast. Dawn was helpful in providing suggestions of restaurants in the area. She even made our dinner reservation at Nolans. We highly recommend a stay at the 1837 Cobblestone Cottage!

Dawn and Tom were wonderful hosts! The place is beautifully decorated and in a great location. Dawn's breakfasts were great. Portions were huge. Would highly recommend this B&B.

The breakfast was fantastic and the innkeepers, Dawn and Tom were friendly and helpful in choosing a restaurant for dinner. Will definitely go back.

Loved loved loved this B&B! The house was cozy yet modern and renovated; it was the perfect mix. The innkeepers(Tom and Dawn) were pleasant and delightful and made us wonderful breakfasts each morning from an egg puff with cinnamon scones to one of the best french toasts I've ever had (with pralines). There were warm chocolate chip cookies waiting for us on arrival. There was tea and coffee daily. I lvoe dthe overall decor inside and out. The property was beautiful with an outdoor deck in the rear and two sepearate quaint porches in the front. The location was fantastic, only steps from the lakefront. I loved th art that was painted by the owner which were showcased throughout. There was a library of books to peruse through and it was just an all around beautiful house and spotlessly clean. We stayed in the honeymoon cottage which was very private and spacious. The only slight complaint was that our heat (which was separate from the rest of the house) was not functioning but the innkeepers placed a portable heater in our room and it was nice and toasty. It is a hidden gem and I'm so glad we stumbled upon it. Our friends stayed at more "known" B7B in the downtown part of Canandaigua but I felt that ours was much more modern and beautiful and just unique overall. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and plan to do so next year as well!
4.8 on September 20, 2012
Dawn & Tom made the visit wonderful. We enjoyed seeing a couple get engaged, another on their anniversary and the young couple spending first night after the wedding. The food was wonderful and I loved their company. The dogs made it extra special! Food and room were all A+!
5 on September 17, 2012
We stayed a week, along with another couple. Loved it. Dawn and Tom were great hosts! Highly recommend.
5 on September 09, 2012
Family wedding brought us to Canandaigua this past week end. Rather than stay at a "cookie cutter" hotel, we chose the Cobblestone Cottage, run by Dawn & Tom and we were sure glad we did. The ambiance created by them is outstanding. The rooms are most comfortable and cleanliness is apparent throughout the cottage. The 2 breakfasts were outstanding, best you could hope for, in quality,presentation and service. These 2 Innkeepers really take pride in what they do. WONDERFUL
5 on September 09, 2012
My husband and I just concludes a 4 day stay with Dawn and Tom at the Cobblestone. We couldn't have been happier! The food was outstanding - everything made from scratch by Dawn. We were extremely happy with the choices of baked goods -we tried everything - heck we were on vacation. The Praline French Toast was our favorite!!! Lots of pralines, eggs, made with french bread and served with NYS Maple Syrup. What a treat! And we certainly appreciated the colorful and delicious fresh fruit served at the start of breakfast. We were grateful in the fact that Dawn got up early and had a coffee/tea setup at 7:30 with additional munches for us to hold us til the hot meal. Our suite was delightful and clean. The house is Beautiful and the beds were heavenly! In conclusion, we must state that if you are in the Finger Lakes area - a stay at the Cobblestone with Tom and Dawn is a Must. We've been staying in B&Bs for years - this one is by far the Best!

We enjoyed our stay at Cobblestone. Dawn and Tom were super helpful with places to eat and things to do. The attic room is far nicer in person than in the photos ireally enjoyed the egg breakfast days. The French toast breakfast were tasty but too high carb and low nutrition for me. I thought the website mentioned bottled water and cold drinks in the fridge but that was not the case The inside sitting areas are fabulous. Dawn had chocolate chip cookies out every afternoon and in the morning before breakfast some yummy baked item (banana bread, muffins rolls) It had a huge porch to enjoy an evening drink and one side even had views of the lake. The other side of the porch need some serious spider web removal. I never wanted to sit on that side. There is a dried arrangement on the first door entry and 2 nights in a row there was a spider hanging beside it. A different evening snack would have been nice but I did keep eating the cookies. All in all it was a lovely stay and I do recommend them.

Super B & B! Add this one to your list if visiting the Finger Lakes district! A 5 Star all the way! Beautiful, super clean and warm and inviting place to stay. Len & Joanie Verestiuk

We went over night to celebrate are 27th anniversary. It was very nice. The inn keepers were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was great! We would stay there again.

Our two day "get-away" was absolutely perfect at the 1837 Cobblestone Cottage in the Finger Lakes. We were greeted by Dawn and given yummy chocolate chip cookies upon our arrival. Dawn and Tom were so welcoming, hospitable and full of knowledge about the home and the area. Breakfast was absolutely delicious and the front porch was so relaxing to sit and enjoy more coffee and take in the beautiful views. Our room was so cozy and the king size bed so comfortable. We only wish we could have stayed longer. We will be returning to 1837 Cobblestone Cottage for our next year's "get-away"! Joe and Pat from Long Island, NY.

I just returned from my holiday that started with a 2 night stay at the 1837 Cobblestone Cottage.We had a great time in the welcoming and comfortable environment . The rooms were fantastic and the food was delicious. Best of all was meeting the lovely hostess Dawn . It was hard to leave.
4.8 on August 24, 2012
This B&B was amazing. They had great common areas to visit in. The rooms were large and spacious, so home-y. Breakfast was outstanding, there was so much food and it was so good and homemade, far exceeded my expectations. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
5 on August 23, 2012
To celebrate my birthday my wife and I spent an overnight at the Cobblestone Cottage bed and breakfast. The location and appearance of this historic home was breathtaking and more then we expected. The common area of the interior including the dining area took you back to the decor of that period. The bedroom (Honeymoon Suite) was spacious and decorated to fit that period. The service was outstanding and our hosts Dawn and Tom were gracious and couldn't do enough for you. We plan to return in the near future and spend two or more nights. We are pleased that we selected this B&B for my birthday celebration. Thank you for the hospitality..
2.2 on August 21, 2012
I had told the B&B manager that I had allergies and was very allergic to particle board -type furniture, which contains formaldehyde glue. She assured me that the room did not have that kind of furniture and that I "will be fine." When we arrived, I found that the bathroom had a large under-sink cabinet filled with particle board, as did the bed and night stands. We had reservations for 4 nights. I was unable to stay in the room and had to sleep outside on the front porch for 2 nights. We then made arrangements to stay elsewhere and left. The manager refused to refund our payment for the two nights we couldn't use, saying the furniture was from LL Bean which she called "green." I called LL Bean whose customer service representative agreed the furniture did have "fibre board" that could contain formaldehyde. Another LL Bean representative said LL Bean's product specialist didn't know what it contained. I understand that the summer is a valuable rental period for B&Bs in upstate New York. However, under the circumstance, Cobblestone should have refunded the cost of the two nights.
5 on August 21, 2012
We had a superb stay and would return ina minute. This home is sooo charming, is close to everything, the inn keepers were so nice and accomodating. They knew all about the area and helped us find the best places to eat. Their breakfasts were outstanding!!!! Our room was excellent. it is quiet here and the perfect place for a get away!!

Great place to stay if you are visiting the area or attending a concert at CMAC. Extremely helpful in assisting us with directions and locating areas of interest. Thanks so much for an excellent visit. Dave and Lauren
4.8 on August 14, 2012
A lovely and gracious home, beautifully appointed with heirloom furniture and original local artwork. A sprawling front porch with wicker and potted plants makes an ideal nook to read the morning newspaper or chat with the other guests. The breakfasts were ample and delicious, and the fellowship of innkeepers Dawn and Tom was exceptional. I highly recommend it!
4.6 on August 14, 2012
Dawn Frank was a gracious host. The other guests were very nice as well. Dawn was available, but very unobtrusive. I would highly recommend The Cobblestone Cottage. Jim Wilbur, Cambridge, MA
5 on August 09, 2012
This is a beautiful interesting cottage with great warmth and class. The location is ideal near the lake. The furnishings are comfortable and the Americana arts and crafts decor is charming. It is bright with natural light, has luxurious linens, gorgeous tableware, a front porch with cushioned wicker and flowering potted plants and the hosts Dawn and Tom are superb engaging people with abundant knowledge of the local area. This home has every amenity for an enjoyable stay and we cannot wait to return! We are seasoned travellers and rate this spot as one of the finest bed and breakfasts anywhere.
5 on August 09, 2012
Over the years we have stayed at many B&B's around the world. Our stay at Cobblestone Cottage was one of our best ever. Everything about it says "We're so glad you're here." Beautifully decorated, clean, comfortable and the food was amazing. Dawn & Tom are warm, welcoming and just plain wonderful!! If you are looking for a B&B in Canandaigua area we highly recommend The Cobblestone Cottage!!! Mary & Gary Putman

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Attic Quilt Suite and we had a great time. Dawn was so welcoming and the food was terrific. We would stay here again, what a great B & B !!
5 on July 23, 2012
My husband and I recently saved at the Cobblestone Cottage and had a very relaxed and pampered stay. Our hosts were gracious and welcoming and the facilities were top notch. Breakfast was delicious and piping hot. We are planning on staying again in the future. The fresh baked chocolate chip cookies on arrival were a nice touch. my husband had to race on Sunday and had washed his water bottles out and left them to dry. We found them later that day filled with ice cubes in the freezer ready to go for the next day and even though he could not stay for breakfast our hosts had packed him a breakfast to take for early in the morning. These gestures are the things that will bring us back again. Thank you Tom and Dawn
4.8 on July 23, 2012
Spent one night in this beautiful B&B while attending a CMAC concert. This placed exceeded my expectations in everyday, from the helpful and friendly caretakers to the rooms, grounds and pool! I'll never stay in a hotel in this area again, now that I know about this beautiful location. Can' wait to come back!
5 on July 23, 2012
We loved this B & B. The service was warm and welcoming, the little "attic" room we stayed in was just adorable and completely comfy, with TV, Wi Fi and all the amenities. The bathroom was large enough to accommodate us (some B & Bs that I have stayed at have tiny little bathrooms because they are in older houses). The breakfast was great. I would definitely stay there again. If you go and like a little privacy, reserve the upstairs room.
5 on July 22, 2012
Charming cottage! Service perfect, loved the front porch! Can't wait to get back!
5 on July 20, 2012
We have not yet had to opportunity to stay, however Dawn was gracious in giving us a tour. The rooms are all breathtaking and spotless! We did stay for an impromptu lunch that was delicious, presentation was awesome. There are many, many things to do to keep busy in the area and lovely grounds and pool for relaxing. Can't wait to actually stay here!
4.8 on July 18, 2012
We spent a night this past weekend at this lovely B&B with friends. There were three couples, and we took up all the rooms. What a treat it was! Our hosts, Dawn and Tom, could not have been more gracious. The inn is delightfully decorated in a most charming and tasteful manner, including multiple items from Mackenzie-Childs. Each room has its own unique character and decor, and is so comfortable! It’s just a brief drive from the city of Canandaigua, but it feels you are far from town in a peaceful, rural location. Four of us got to enjoy the scrumptious breakfast, and the other two, who were doing a triathlon and had to leave at 5:00 AM, found that while we were out to dinner Dawn had packed them each a “to go” breakfast to take “on the road” to the race...SO appreciated! We would return here in a heartbeat.
4.6 on July 15, 2012
Cobblestone Cottage was all anyone could ask for in a bed-and-breakfast; lovely spacious room, delightful hosts, plentiful food. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.
5 on July 14, 2012
Food was Yummy. Dawn and Tom were Exceptional Hosts! We felt right at home, comfy and relaxed. The Cobblestone is Beautiful.. And we couldn't have been happier. Making - return reservations in September.

Dawn and Tom were very friendly and helpful. Comfortable place to stay with delicious breakfasts.

Having traveled from Boston I was anxious for a good shower and a good nights rest. Thankfully Cobblestone Cottage provided an excellent, clean, and moreover welcoming enviroment. The Inn keepers are amazing! The rooms are more than adequate, the breakfasts are delicious and overall this place is just wonderful.

We are a couple from Buffalo who traveled to see the Sonnenburg Mansion & Gardens in the Finger Lakes. We found the Cobblestone Cottage on the Internet and quickly made arrangements to stay there. The host (Tom) responded within a few hours to our request. We arrived on a Friday, late afternoon, and were met by Tom's wife Dawn. She made us feel comfortable right away, we felt like we knew her for years. We met Tom shortly after. Like Dawn, he was most hospitable and an excellent host also. It was obvious to us that they had found their "niche" in running this B&B. They had ample brochures of restaurants and things to do in the area. We were there for only one night, but we did find a recommendation that worked out fine for us. They invited us to join them in meeting friends with them at a restaurant that night. We would have, but we preferred to be alone that evening as our lives have been crazy busy of late. The next morning Dawn had a full breakfast of cereal, veggie souffle, french toast, bacon, fruit, juices, coffee, and .............. You could not walk away hungry unless you weren't trying. We parted ways promising to return, not a hard promise to make considering the accommodations. We went to a castle upon their recommendation, had a great time there also. All in all, I would highly recommend the Cobblestone to anyone wanting to do a getaway in the Finger Lakes Region. BTW - the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in!!
5 on June 19, 2012
I am a B&B'er exclusively and Cobblestone Cottage is not to be missed! Dawn and Tom were most gracious and FUN. We were staying for an overnight only but could have stayed the entire summer!
5 on June 13, 2012
We have stayed overnight at the 1837 Cobblestone Cottage the same weekend for the last 2 years. The rooms are top notch the service is first rate and breakfast is always spot on. If your looking for a bed and breakfast with a "second home" feel I recommend 1837 Cobblestone Cottage.
5 on October 26, 2011
Our time at Cobblestone was too short! We had such a lovely stay and the innkeeper was so gracious and warm, not to mention the fact that she could cook! We would like to return with our adult children and rent all three rooms!
5 on October 21, 2011
We loved the rooms. The entire home was beautiful and very clean. We enjoyed the wonderful breakfast. We look forward to a summer stay so we can enjoy the wonderful porch.

My wife and I stayed at the Cobblestone cottage in August for a 3 night getaway to celebrate our 25th wedding Anniversary. We had booked the Honeymoon Cottage suite and we were not dissapointed. The room was large,cozy & beautifully decorated. Everything one would need was in the room right down to the terry robes. The house is quite old but has been beautifully renovated to give one a warm comfortable feeling. Kathleen the inkeeper was very friendly and helpful to us seeing that we were not from that area. She recommended some great places to visit on our stay along with some excellent restaurants to try. She even booked one for us. The breakfast in the mornings were really something to look forward to. They were exquisite! We never left the table hungry, that's for sure. This is one B&B that we both hope to revisit one day soon.
3.8 on September 23, 2011
As regular B&Bers, we have high expectations for B&Bs at this price. Cobblestone Cottage met or exceeded those expectations in all regards. Kathy is a gracious and accommodating host. The outdoor swimming pool was an added bonus!
5 on September 21, 2011
Meagan was so friendly, we felt right at home. The room was on the smaller side but tastefully decorated and exceptionally clean. The breakfast (creme brulee french toast) was terrific - and very filling. We would definitely stay again.
5 on September 17, 2011
Kathleen's artistic talents are evident throughout this historic home. Every room is decorated with taste and color. We recently stayed 6 nights and every breakfast was a delight for the eyes and stomach: Blueberry puff, creme bule french toast, belgian waffles, crustless quiche, egg stata, and cranberry pecan pancakes were all served with bacon, sausage and ham, fresh fruit, juice, yogurt and heart coffee. the morning was such a treat because every detail, from the colorful dishes, lit canles, and soft classical music encourged lively conversation in a beautiful room with plenty of natural sunlight. We enjoyed reading on the wide, sheltered front porch in the afternoon, as well as dipping in the pool to cool off after a day of exploring. Kathleen is interesting to talk to, helpful and always ready to assist.

Beautiful grounds, deck, pool, very quiet. Rooms were well appointed, bed was very comfortable. Would stay there agin for a CMAC event...

This was our 1st experience at a Bed and Breakfast and won't be our last. From the moment we stepped into the house we felt welcome. Kathleen showed us to our wonderful accomodations and had chocolate chip cookies waiting. She was the perfect hostess. I will recommend to my friends!!Thanks for a great night...Mario and Patty
5 on September 06, 2011
This was our first B&B experience and it was a treat! Wished we could have stayed longer. The entire cottage is very clean, tastefully decorated and very comfy! The king size bed was plush, the breakfasts were awesome-stuffed french toast, cranberry pecan waffles, fresh fruit...yum! Finnigan and McDuff, Kathleen's Westies, were very well behaved, not noisy at all, and welcomed you whenever you came "home"! I think another trip to the Finger Lakes may be in order with more time spent here!
5 on August 21, 2011
Our weekend at the 1837 Cobblestone Cottage exceeded our expectations. From the fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies that greeted us to the beautifully decorated rooms, we couldn't have asked for anything more. It was such a pleasure to meet Kathleen. She was extremely accommodating and made us feel so welcome in her home. I highly recommend this lovely B and B to anyone looking for a truly relaxing stay!
5 on August 15, 2011
My husband & I stayed at the inn in the attic suite for our anniversary. It is a lovely spot! You won't leave for a day of wine tasting on an empty stomach - the breakfasts are wonderful!!
4.4 on August 07, 2011
One of the best B and B's that we've ever stayed in. Kathy is a superb innkeeper who knows the importance of "the details". Everything is there and it's all where you'd expect to find it. Our Attic Quilt suite was homey and warm and ENORMOUS. Breakfast was superb. The house and grounds are gorgeous and the pool was a godsend on a hot day. Simply superb. Thanks, Kathy.

On a 10 day bike tour of the Finger Lakes region with another couple (staying 1 or 2 days at various B&B's and Inns working our way West to East from Canandaigua to Skaneateles). This was our second stop in our journey to coincide with Canandaigua's Art & Music Festival, and what a wonderful stop it was. Kathleen is a gracious host - she made you feel truly welcomed as if you were staying at a close freind or relative's home. The house was tastefully decorated and impeccably clean, while still being warm and cozy. Beds were very comfortable. It was nice to be able to take a dip in the pool in late afternoon to cool down. Also spent the evening on the porch relaxing after exploring and dining downtown (PS. try the Rio Tomatlan for great Mexican and tequila). Speaking of food, the breakfast Kathleen prepared each morning was wonderful, and the Chocolate Chip Cookies left out in the afternoon were addictive. Overall, highly recommended and would definitely return the next time traveling in the region. Thank you Kathleen, hope to see you again soon.
5 on July 29, 2011
This B&B was my first experience, and it's going to be hard to top. Gorgeous home, it was everything I expected it to be and more! Kathy is the most gracious hostess you will ever meet and she makes the most wonderful breakfast. She gave us wonderful suggestions on places to eat and things to do and see during our visit to the Finger Lakes region, we had a wonderful trip. Will definitely stay again to share another glass of wine on the front porch :)

Very pleasant, conveniently located. It was an enjoyable stay.
5 on July 20, 2011
The inn is very well appointed and Kathy is a warm host. Our room was expansive--we could easily enjoy staying there much longer than the overnight we booked. We have stayed at many B&Bs over the years and the Cobblestone is one of the very best. You won't regret staying there. Rather, you will look for an excuse to return.
4.4 on July 19, 2011
We returned to the 1837 Cobblestone Cottage this summer, having stayed for the first time last year. Kathy Conner's hospitality remains exceptional and renovations to several rooms made the cottage's layout even more appealing. We will definitely continue to stay there whenever we visit Canandaigua.
4.8 on July 13, 2011
From the moment we entered the Cobblestone Cottage, we felt at home. The furnishings and accoutrements were exceptional. Every detail has been well thought out and carried out. Kudos to Kathleen Connor and daughter. Much hard work is obvious in this gorgeous bed and breakfast.

Our stay was absolutely wonderful. Kathleen was a gracious host and she provided the most lovely breakfasts.

We really enjoyed our stay at the cobblestone cottage last weekend. Meghan was a perfect hostess and made us feel completely at home as well as fed us an incredible breakfast. We will definitely go back when we find ourselves in the Finger Lakes area and in need of some R + R. What a charming place!

This beautiful B&B was so warm and cozy. Kathleen was very welcoming and helpful. We loved the dogs. They were friendly but not intrusive. The attic suite was very private and spacious.The cookies were sooo good. Breakfast was skillfully prepared and tastefully presented. We plan to recommend it to no one because we want to have it for ourselves!!! Just kidding-anyone would be lucky to enjoy this charming cottage and hospitable innkeeper. We can't wait to go back.
5 on June 13, 2011
I have spent many vacations in a B&B. 1837 Cobblestone Cottage is TRUE to it's website unlike some others who mislead with pictures that paint a "different reality" once you get there. The rooms are as charming in real life as they are on the website displaying the warm ambience of the cottage. All the details were attended to from the background music, to the homemade cookies waiting on the table every afternoon, the enchanting decor and the lit candles at our table each morning for breakfast. Kathy was a true, endearing hostess and a FABULOUS cook with her delicious breakfasts. Trust me, you will not go away hungry. This is a "must go to" B&B in such a lovely part of the country on the Finger Lakes in NY.
5 on June 08, 2011
My husband and I stayed here this past weekend and we just loved this b&b! Kathy was the perfect hostess and innkeeper. She was very warm and welcoming. The home was decorated very beautifully, artistically and tastefully. The attention to details were the icing on the cake (gorgeously scented homeade style soaps and delicious homeade cookies)! Breakfast was excellent. The home was very clean. We stayed in the Honeymoon sweet and loved the privacy of the room as well as the lavish whirlpool tub! I hope to have another reason to visit Canandaguia so we have an excuse to stay at this cottage again. I've stayed at many B&B's and this surpassed all of them by far!
5 on June 07, 2011
Kathleen is an excellent host. The rooms are spotless, food is excellent...we felt like we were at home (only pampered more). This was more than just a place to sleep for the night, we felt like we connected and a spontaneous hug when we left felt like the natural thing to do. Canandaigua is a beatiful town full of friendly people...make sure you eat at 'Peppers' and try some of the locally brewed 'Naked Dove' beer.
5 on June 03, 2011
This was our second stay, and it was just as perfect as the first. The cottage is beautiful, the ambiance serene, the beds like clouds, and the food is simply wonderful. Kathleen - the innkeeper - is the nicest person you'll ever meet. If I could live there, I would.

My husband and I have stayed at a few bed and breakfasts and I want to say that Kathleen does an incredible job with the accommodations and food. To start with, the room is exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated. The food, starting with the chocolate chip cookies, is out of this world. Breakfast is well done, both the taste and the presentation. We are amazed at how well put together the entire package is. I would recommend the entire weekend to all my friends. Kathleen is a very outgoing, helpful and knowledgeable innkeeper. Hopefully, we will again spend time here. Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your dogs as well as the beautifully kept grounds and inn.

We stayed at the Cottage for a "Romantic Weekend Getaway" The premises were very nicely maintained, the Attic Quilt Suite wonderfully furnished, quiet, and private. The hostess was wonderful, frindly and helpful, and the food was fantastic. We will stay there again!

My husband and I stayed at this b&b for two nights on our 10th anniversary. We stayed in the attic quilt suite. The room was very nice and the bed was extremely comfortable! We both loved the pecan pancake they were wonderful! The innkeeper Kathleen was very helpful and her knowledge of the area and restaurants was extensive. We were both pleasantly surprised to find cookies waiting on the table when we returned from our day of exploring the region. Thank you for a relaxing weekend Kathleen!

My husband and I stayed at the Cobblestone Cottage recently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed in the Attic Quilt Suite, and loved the space and the comfortable king sized bed. The breakfasts were amazing - I think our favourite was the pecan pancakes. We also both loved the chocolate chip cookies in the afternoons. Kathleen's home is so comfortable and welcoming. We have already recommended this bed and breakfast to our friends and family.

Elegant, tasteful family home. Beautifully appointed. Breakfasts were delicious and ample! Lots of suggestions for things to do and an incredibly interesting tour of the secret attic room (part of the undrground railroad). Fascinating! Stayed 2 nights in October. Would go back in a hearbeat!!

I could not believe how clean/neat it was. the owner was very friendly and accommodating. We had plenty of privacy but also welcomed the other guests. Appreciated the choice of eating privately at our own table or as a group. The only thing we were a little disappointed in was the menu. We have stayed at other B/B's and breakfast was something different and unique. In fact I always asked for the recipe (for example a quiche or some kind of scone, specialty french toast etc.) We were not able to stay long enough to enjoy the outside grounds, pool area and the house itself. We would definitely stay here again.
Thank you for taking the time to review 1837 Cobblestone Cottage and for the compliments. As for the breakfasts, My guests have always complimented my big country breakfasts. The breakfasts are just that! I would ask what was served that morning as I always make sure the hot breakfast is especially "unique" in that it would take great effort to make on your own at home and is especially good to eat. Guests ask that the breakfast not be unique as to loose that country breakfast flavor. Many guests are not ready to take on a morning taste that is unfamiliar to them.

This Bed and Breakfast was incredible. Kathy was wonderful and made our stay very special. The location is close to everything yet away from the hustle and bustle. The breakfasts were delicious and more food than I expected. The cookies in the evenings were a true treat. I highly recommend a stay at this amazing B&B!

...was most delightful - you thought of everything, all your hard work and attention to details was most appreciated and enjoyed - breakfast, well shoot, you and Paula Deane did a "bang up" job on the French Toast and sides...I'd keep her...many thanks again.....Roger & Merle

We had a wonderful stay in this historic home. We chose it because of the history of the home on the Underground Railroad, but there are many reasons to go back. It is clean, spacious, and the owner has truly thought of everything--there is even a basket of toothbrushes in case you need one. The house is very clean, and I had no difficulties with allergies, as I do in many older homes. The food was more than abundant, and was truly delicious. We felt at home, and the owner's artwork is really lovely. The town of Canandaigua is charming. I have stayed in many B & B's, but this one is outstanding!

This inn was a real delight. It's very close to town and the lake. Fresh cookies in the afternoon, a friendly and helpful innkeeper, magazine-quality decor, thoughtful amenities, and delicious breakfast. Wish we could have stayed longer!

This was a beautiful B & B. It was tastefully decorated and just a realy hometown friendly feeling. The bedroom was beautiful and the bed was very comfortable. The grounds around the home are just beautiful and would have liked to spend more time out there. Loved every minute there.

What a beautiful and charming B&B. Very close to to heart of Canandaigua. Each room is decorated with elegance and feel so cozy. We were there in the summer months, but winter would be fantastic as well, with the fireplaces and warm lighting. I was invited by a guest for a party, so I did not have the opportunity to sleep or eat there, but I'm sure I would have been charmed.

This is a gorgeous place. The decor is amazing and the original features of the home are so incredibly beautiful. I just walked around in awe. Had a fantastic time there - highly recommended!!

My out-of-town relatives absolutely RELISHED their extended weekend stay here for my husband's big birthday family reunion! The bedrooms were super-comfy and roomy; the en-suite bathrooms were charming and well appointed. And the kitchen, living room, porches, TV room and dining room were the perfect setting for our crowd to mingle, relax, laugh, dine, and celebrate such a special occasion. Kathy, the innkeeper, has created the absolute BEST B&B you can imagine. I want to move in! Permanently! I highly recommend renting the whole house. For a short time, you can dream you live in one of the most beautiful places in the world! (Don't miss the Underground Railroad hidden room!) - Heather Ward

Quiet, clean, comfortable beds, great food, amazing spaces, friendly atmosphere. I've stayed in more than a few B&Bs, and this was the best yet!

We have stayed in many B&Bs around the world, and this was, hands down, the finest experience we have had. The hostess, Kathleen Conner, could not have been more gracious and accommodating. We took the Honeymoon Cottage,which is a suite with two bedrooms that we shared with another couple, each of which was immaculate and beautifully appointed. The breakfast was as fine a B&B breakfast as I've ever had. The cottage is located a short walk from Canandaigua Lake, which affords a beautiful background and a nice place to take stroll. i could not recommend it more highly.

Gracious hostess, tasteful decor, bountiful breakfast, comfortable bed, beautiful grounds, great location for exploring the Finger Lakes. All in all, a great B&B-- one we hope to return to some day!

Booked in for 3 nights, then extended our stay an extra unplanned night. Innkeeper was very sociable, and the dogs are charming! Will plan to stay again when in Canandaigua.
