Staying at the Morgan-Samuels Inn in mid January was like enjoying a slice of quiet wintery paradise. Every room was filled with warmth from the many fireplaces through out, even the enclosed porch. Beautiful artwork & stained glass enhanced the beauty of this old stone inn. The sumptuous breakfast wound up being a multi-course affair. Set aside a little extra time for this & savour the experience ! Dinner was unforgettable. The most delectable cuisine served in an intimate dining room. We stayed mid week & had the entire place to ourselves. Just AWESOME !!!

We had an amazing New Year's eve at this inn. John and Julie presented an unforgettable six course gourmet meal in a very romantic private setting. We were personally attended to throughout the meal. The food was remarkable and it was fun not knowing what the next course would be. Our room was very beautiful and it was a wonderful retreat.

My husband and I spent a couple of nights at the Morgan Samuels Inn for a romantic and quiet getaway from a busy life. Located in the country, but close to the town of Canandaigua so it was easy to slip into town. John and Julie's hospitality was warm and inviting. l loved the antiques and décor. We enjoyed the number of intimate spaces for candlelight dining. It was an opportunity to share some quality time with my partner without distraction. The warm and comfortable common areas were especially appreciated. We enjoyed hanging out and relaxing by the fireplace as we read and sipped our wine. We would like to go back for the fall colours some time.

Food and John's hospitality and charm made our stay lovely! Goldwyn was also great company and gave us our dog fix for a couple days.

I want to give this Inn 5 stars, but the site wouldn't let me. My husband, I & my mother in law stayed over Thanksgiving. John, the innkeeper, went overboard for us. Being the only guests for the 3 days we were there, we took over the place. I felt like I was the owner of this mansion and that John was my personal butler. The grounds were beautiful with the fresh snowfall, and the common areas all have wood burning stoves or fireplaces.The murals, furnishings & decorations were welcoming. We invited our relatives to dinner at the inn the day after Thanksgiving, and John gave us a beautiful, candlelit, 3+ hour multi-course meal. Our relatives called the evening magical and I'd have to agree. The Inn itself has its quirks, being renovated from its 1810 original status. For instance, the shower in our bathroom was up about 5 steps. Considered as a whole, though, I could not have asked for anything better. We are experienced B&B'rs, and this stay was at the top of our list. We will definitely be back next year!

We were so thankful to be able to sneak away from our busy life, enjoying quiet time ---just the two of us. Julie and John made it a memorable experience. The dinner was amazing, leaving us full to the brim, having had every one of our taste buds tantalized. Christmas time was the perfect time to visit...the lights and decorations everywhere were spectacular. Thanks again for your hospitality!

My husband and I chose the Morgan Samuels Inn for a two night stay to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before so we did not know what to expect. We were very pleased with how things turned out. When we arrived, it was late afternoon on a Saturday in November. We had heard that the innkeeper had a dog so we were prepared. We were greeted in the driveway by Goldwyn, a Vizsla. Oh, boy was he adorable. We followed him inside, and the innkeepers’ son checked us in. We stayed in the Garden Room, described as a French cottage room with a four-poster bed. We liked the idea that it had a private entrance. We were looking for something romantic and secluded. It was all that. The room itself is charming and beautiful. The bed was very comfortable and was covered in pillows. It was just what we were looking for. The inn itself is charming and pretty. There was a fire burning in most of the common rooms. The breakfasts were phenomenal. There was a large fruit platter, baked apple, Greek yogurt, and more. The second morning there was various homemade pastries (I had a cinnamon roll, and my husband had a sticky bun). Both were to die for. This was all before the main dish arrived! The first morning I had pecan buckwheat pancakes and bacon on the side. The second morning I had French toast made from sunflower bread and bacon on the side. I have never had such service and such yummy treats to wake up with. The food was plentiful and so worth it. The owners aim to please, and it shows. Since this was our first bed and breakfast, we didn’t know what to expect. We were very happy with our experience. We were well-taken care of. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. NOTE: We rate the Service and Dining as "Outstanding" but for some reason we can't select those buttons above.

This was the first time my husband and I had stayed at an Inn. We will never go back to a standard hotel. John made us feel welcome as soon as we were in the door, breakfast was wonderful. Sorry we had to go home.

My husband and I recently stayed here and were able to indulge in the dinner on our first evening in the inn. We had dinner in the private dining room for two and thoroughly enjoyed it. The two breakfasts we had were also absolutely delicious. John and Julie are wonderful hosts.
