Welcoming and restful

We were delighted with our stay. Kathryn is a wonderful hostess and made us feel at home. Breakfasts were delicious and she even worked around my spouses aversion to eggs and was very creative. We have stayed at many B&B's and rate The Red Door highly. If you need a place to stay in This area ....this is the place!!!

Extremely clean, very kind hostess, and wonderful stay!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a weekend getaway and had an amazing time! The house is beautiful! The attention to detail is incredible. Our room and bathroom were extremely clean. Kathryn, the owner, couldn't have been more welcoming, kind, and caring. She also makes an awesome breakfast and went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable! We highly recommend this place and definitely hope to visit again!

Perfect Stay

The Red Door Inn B&B is an excellent choice if you are staying in the area or traveling through! Kathryn was VERY accommodating and we could not have had a better stay. This B&B and Kathryn will always be special to my fiance and I, we stayed here during our vacation where I proposed to my girlfriend, now fiance. We will stay here again if the opportunity comes up again!

Red door

Recently stayed at the red door and experience was wonderful. Was just passing thru town for work, so I was worried about booking only one night during the week. Kathryn was very accommodating and warmly welcomed us into her home. She recommended driving the Seneca wine trail during our one day stay and that was wonderful. Went home with to much wine! For the same price you can stay in a boring cookie cutter hotel with no character, but why would you. Felt like we were staying at a friends home for the night. Do yourself a favor and stay here next time in finger lakes region of New York!

The Lovely Red Door Inn B&B

Going up the graveled driveway, one can only imagine alighting from your carriage to climb the wide steps to towering twin columns on either side of the entrance. On the majestic veranda wrapping around the front and side of the grand Inn I can see elegant swooping gowns and starched collared shirts with tailored tails. Dainty sweets and fragrant tea served on the family china clink as I see in my mind's eye smiling hosts chatting to their neighbours about the latest gossip. I open my eyes to see our own host, Ms. Kathryn Carson waiting for us in the doorway of that elegant home. Staying at the Red Door Inn is a step back in time. As a second visit to this establishment it did not fail to meet our expectations. Kathryn is a pleasing and gracious host and will go to any lengths to accommodate her guests. Breakfast was amazingly delicious, plentiful and provided a much needed large carafe of coffee. Our room was nicely decorated in the time period of the past but the bathroom with the lovely walk in shower is a modern show piece. We stayed in the Field Room with our own air-conditioning unit, so adjusting the temperature was easy. A little refrigerator supplied bottled water with enough space for left overs. There is also a safe cleverly hidden in the closet. The sitting room is at the end of the hall of our rooms but we chose to go downstairs to the informal family room to play cards on the round table by the fireplace. Jane Austen would have been proud. A formal drawing room was across from that. Outside under a circle of large trees rests another seating area if you are in the habit of a good book and some quiet time or just want to watch the world drift by on the street below. Our friends having never been to a B&B before were pleasantly surprised. Next time we will endeavour to stay longer to enjoy Ms. Kathryn's hospitality, as our visit was much too short.

Had an AMAZING birthday weekend! Kathryn left a note on the door anticipating my arrival & instructions how to contact her. Enjoyed a lovely afternoon on the veranda then inside in the sitting room. She thought of everything- including a birthday plate includingb

Did a one -night stay here and it was perfect - rooms are immaculate, hospitality is top-notch, and a nice Florida room to sit and relax in. I would stay here again.

A Wonderful Experience!!!

We have stayed at several B&B's in this area and Ref Door Inn rates with the best of the best. From the beautiful property, to the genuine care and concern of the proprietor, Kathryn; everything was perfect. Cleanliness and comfort were top of the mark! What an exquisite way to spend time. Kudos to Red Door Inn for making our stay so very special!

Everything was perfect

Everything was really smooth from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. We were greeting kindly and given a tour of house. The house was incredible, being built around 1800, it was unbelievable how nicely it has been kept up. Our room was very warm and inviting, everything was laid out nicely. Kathryn, the owner, gave us a really nice run down of the town. We had never been to Canandaigua before, so we were happy to hear her advice. The bed was and room overall was very comfortable. Breakfast time was perfect. We stayed two nights and had two home cooked meals. The breakfast was top notch and the service was perfect. Overall, I would easily recommend this to any of my friends and I hope they get the chance to stay there.
