A fabulous stay

4.8 on April 12, 2015

My husband and I wanted to have a get away close to home. The Morgan Samuels was indeed an oasis in the middle of a bleak western New York winter. We were warmly greeted by John our host who prepared a sumptuous 6 course dinner our first night there. What made the evening more special was being in our own private dining room. The room we chose to stay in was spacious with an old world charm. We had plenty of common areas to relax and enjoy playing cribbage. The breakfast at Morgan Samuels featured plenty of fresh fruits and choices of entrees. Our appetites were always satisfied. As dog lovers we were particularly pleased to have Goldwyn pay attention to us given our own dog was home. Throughout out our stay we felt well attended to with all our needs taken care of. Morgan Samuels is definitely worth the trip to experience an old country Inn.

Anniversary Getaway with Friends

5 on April 03, 2015

First let me say we were greeted by Goldwyn - amazing he clearly runs the place. John and Julie were so gracious,caring and made you feel at home. The breakfast was TOP NOTCH and no need for lunch you clearly get your fill. This home is so very relaxing and not rushed. Comfort is found in every corner. Rooms are beautifully appointed. We didn't take part in the nightly dinner offering, but it smelled delicious. (next time!) Can't wait to visit in the summer so we can enjoy more of the grounds!

First time and will be back

4.6 on March 24, 2015

This was our first time at the Morgan Samuel Inn but will not be our last. It was a very comfortable stay but it did not end there. All of the detail, from the decor to the wonderful breakfast, shows how much love they put into the Inn. We did not have dinner but I think that was a mistake. The next time we will take advantage of enjoying a wonderful dinner at the Inn prepared by the hosts. I can not wait to book our next stay to fully enjoy the grounds in full bloom. Thank you again John, Julie and Goldwin (their amazing dog).

Great Winter Getaway

5 on March 13, 2015

We stayed for 2 nights and were lucky to have the whole Inn to ourselves. The first night we enjoyed the sumptuous dinner. It is truly a 7 course feast. Beautifully presented and every bite a treat. We were seated in the small room for two that has a glass wall that looks out onto the snow covered fountain and garden. It was a winter wonderland. The Inn is full of gorgeous period furniture, lots of attention to detail. John was a friendly, attentive host. Breakfast is also a multi-course culinary adventure with a choice of entrees each day. The first day I had the buckwheat pecan/blueberry pancakes with bacon and my husband had the Herb Scrambled Eggs with Ham & Toast. The second day we both had the open-faced omlette that included spinach, peppers & onions - very tasty. We stayed in the Morgan Suite - Incredibly beautiful and spacious. John made us a wood fire both nights, such a nice treat on a winter's night. Overall, just a great getaway, so peaceful & relaxing. We would highly recommend.

Wintery Paradise

4.4 on January 21, 2015

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 !!!

Best New Years Eve ever

4.8 on January 10, 2015

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.

Country Retreat

4.4 on January 05, 2015

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.
