Bed, breakfast ... and beyond. This charming B&B in the New York Finger Lakes area truly deserves all its awards. The inn is gorgeous both inside and out. We enjoyed the companionship in the common rooms, walks around the grounds, and, in the privacy of our own suite – the comfort of a wood-burning fireplace and the two person hot tub. The food is absolutely the best we've had anywhere. My husband and I had the most romantic seven-course dinner, each course better than the last. And the breakfasts every morning were enormously satisfying. One of my favorite memories during our stay was simply getting to unwind and enjoy the amenities of the inn. After breakfast we strolled the grounds, got massages at the spa, and then camped out in front of a fire in our room while we sampled some wine from a local winery. This is a perfect place to stay if you want to hit up one of the famous Finger Lake wine tours in the region. And that’s another wonderful aspect of the Morgan Samuels Inn. While it’s idyllically located in the countryside, it is literally only minutes away from all the shopping, sightseeing, sports or anything else you could possible want. So there is plenty to see and do in the area. And owners John and Julie Sullivan go above and beyond to make their B&B an oasis of comfort for their guests. So bottom line: if you like great food, amazing pampering, and a relaxing place to recoup, the Morgan Samuels Inn is a traveler’s paradise.

Just a Great place for a getaway

My wife and I celebrated our first year anniversary here and will definitely come back for a refresher in a couple of years. I planned to make my wife a surprise and in the end I was as surprised as her. John and Julie were amazing hosts, and the propriety is astonishing. Lot of grounds to cover in a walk and very close to the city if you want to go out. When you join them for a stay, dinner is a must!!! It's a five senses experience.

Gorgeous Location & Sublime Dining

The Morgan Samuels Inn is a gorgeous and welcoming establishment set in an idyllic location. The rooms are immaculate and extremely comfortable. The grounds and gardens are stunning. The owners John and Julie are warm and kind and welcome you into their home with open arms. The dining experience is sublime. A multi-course dinner is offered on site in a private dining area and is exceptionally sophisticated and delicious. I highly recommend this Inn to anyone who is searching for an unforgettably wonderful meal and destination.

Luxury Bed and Breakfast

Beautiful property both inside and out, located near Canandaigua Lake. Wonderful breakfasts. We had the optional three course dinner (BYOB). We ordered the lamb chops, which my wife and I agreed were the best we ever had. The hosts were gracious and the service was excellent. Highly recommended.

Amazing Inn and Fabulous owners

We loved our two nights at the Morgan Samuel Inn. The Morgan Suite is stunning and so spacious. Beautifully decorated. We utilized the new massage parlor and it was wonderful. John and Julie are incredible hosts and go out of their way to "touch all your senses" while you are in their care. We loved them both and John's breakfast and dinner meals are fabulous. You can tell he loves treating you like royalty. The private glassed in dining room overlooking the courtyard made us feel like a king and queen dining together. The grounds are stunning and so peaceful and quiet in that area. We will go back. Highest recommendations that I can give!! Book it!! You will love it.

Cozy Getaway

John and Julie were excellent hosts. We were guests in April and a walk around the grounds was a wonderful way to welcome Spring. Their dog Goldwyn was a fun addition to our weekend stay. We were able to enjoy private dining at dinner, which was a wonderful surprise. The food (both breakfast and dinner) was truly extraordinary.

Fantastic Anniversary

5 on May 17, 2015

My husband and I wanted to spend our 26th anniversary in a special place, with excellent food, that was not too far from home.A friend from Canandaigua recommended the Morgan Samuels Inn. Everything about the Inn was perfect, with so much attention to detail. John was very welcoming and took great care of us. The dinner he prepared was beyond compare to anything we've had at any other bed and breakfast. The breakfast was as impressive as the food at dinner. What a wonderful way to spend our anniversary!
