Cozy and comfortable!

This was our second stay at Temple Hill and we look forward to returning again soon. Temple Hill has a very cozy and inviting atmosphere. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, with large private bathrooms. Temple Hill is conveniently located to Main Street and SUNY Geneseo. The grounds are beautiful and have a secluded feel with the mature trees. Gail and Mary provide a welcoming and delicious breakfast each morning. They also have great recommendations for dinner reservations and area attractions. Tina M.

Fall Getaway

We enjoyed the hospitality and graciousness of Gail and Mary in their lovely home. This former young men's academy is beautifully constructed - rooms are completely private and quiet. Gail made a dinner suggestion which turned out to be superb - just what we wanted for our anniversary dinner!

Wonderful Place to Stay!

Thank you Gail, and Mary. We really enjoyed your place. The bed was very comfortable and the room was large and peaceful. I highly recommend staying here, and enjoying Gail, and Mary's company. The grounds are also wonderful.

Our favorite in Geneseo

Temple Hill B+B is in a gracious building with lovely bedrooms and common areas on a very pretty, tree-lined, quiet street. Out back are a delightful porch and pool. It's friendly and low-key, but no comfort is overlooked, and the breakfasts are truly delicious. Gail and Mary are superb hosts. We just went back for our fourth stay!

What a treat!

We had a wonderful few days in this impressive B & B where we felt like we were home (but better!). If you're considering a stay anywhere else in town, Temple Hill needs to be first on your list. Friendly folks and fabulous food! We will be back!

One Word Review, "Superb"

4.0 on August 11, 2017

For some odd reason this web page would not let me select "Outstanding" for the categories for "Rooms," etc., which Temple Hill Inn really deserves. Three breakfasts were superb. Our hosts were kind and very knowledgeable about the area. Great Value! Don't miss the beer fridge by the pool ...

Squeaky Air

Room was great, loved the antiques, very pleasant host, food was great. The only draw back is the room air conditioner was a bit noisy.

Delightful Bed and Breakfast

Great time at TH

Two couples for four days. We had a great time. Breakfast was always good. Coffee ready early. Gail was very pleasant and had a lifetime of knowledge of the area. Comfortable. Peaceful. Rain watching on the back veranda was so relaxing. Good location. Would stay again.
