1837 Cobblestone Cottage

3402 West Lake Rd , Canandaigua, NY 14424 USA (Show map)

About

The 1837 Cobblestone Cottage is the perfect place to explore the Finger Lakes from an inn on three-and-a-half acres at the north end of Canandaigua Lake. Wide and welcoming steps lead to the front door and a relaxing porch, perfect for a quiet afternoon of cool breezes and fresh baked cookies. Sprawl out on a king-size bed and freshen up in a private bathroom in any of the three guest rooms. The Honeymoon Cottage and Isaac Parrish Suites are romantic retreats with fireplaces and whirlpool tubs. The Attic Suite is a bright and large room tucked under the eaves with a sitting area and space for a third guest. Originally part of a gentleman’s farm, the inn is rich with history and houses a horsehair plaster room in the attic that hid those traveling along the Underground Railroad.

Fall get-a-way

A lovely place to stay. Food was delicious. Would go there again.


Absolutely the very best B & B ever! Loved it

Everything was beyond my expectations. So very clean and well decorated. The owners Joe and Kathy were so welcoming. The porch was so inviting and calming. Can't wait to visit again with my husband. Breakfast was super and presentation excellent.


Bring appetite!

We stayed at this B&B since there are not any notable hotels in the area. The rooms are in an isolated area from the rest of the house, comfortable, and good size. There was not a speck of dust in the whole house. The fixtures are dated, as expected for a house built much earlier. The only problem was the owner serves these huge breakfasts that are culinary delights. We are older and simply cannot as much as anymore. These are four course meals. (We even stole a muffin for lunch.) The owner is very hospitable, attentive to all needs.

Truly a slice of heaven. Beautiful area, accommodations and attention to detail. Host and Hostess go out of their way to make sure our stay was above and beyond. Highly recommend the Cobblestone Cottage!


Excellent B&B, lovely host and outstanding, special breakfast

4.6 on June 20, 2017

We had a great stay and seldom had a so different and outstanding breakfast with very high quality food. The host was very nice and helpful too. To stay at Cobblestone Inn is a very nice treat to yourself. Only drawback for us where too soft mattresses and a bit noisy window unit AC's. Otherwise a great place to stay in the finger lake area.


Amazing place to stay

This was our first time staying and a B&B and thanks to Joe and Kathy it was an incredible experience. They have a beautiful and clean house and make you feel very welcome. We are already planning our next visit.


A fantastic place to stay.. We loved it!!!!

5 on November 25, 2016

The porch and whole house is so inviting and comfortable. There is a fireplace in EVERY ROOM, bedrooms, common area, dining area. Its amazing. The house is amazing. Also the host Kathy was so incredibly nice and friendly.. not to mention an amazing breakfast cook! We stayed in the attic suite which was perfect. It is very large and beautifully decorated. On our stay we were the only guests which was nice in a way. We had all the common areas to ourselves so in the morning I came down in the plush robe left for us to use and sat on the porch having my tea one morning and also after a shower one night came down and sat in the TV room watching TV with my husband. It was like I was at home. Every morning I woke to the smell of some fantastic meal being cooked for us. Both mornings we had amazing meals that kept us full all day. Other B&B's I stayed at did not serve as much food as Kathy does. It was a nice treat for my husband and I. Another thing I loved it breakfast was served at 9am! That was a perfect time, it gives you time to sleep in if you want, get ready in the morning without getting up super early or just relax for a little while with your coffee or tea before eating. The views from the house were nice. You can see the lake from the front porch and the bedroom windows of the room we were in. The whole house is beautifully decorated. Kathy leaves you little treats in different rooms. One room had candy and another bags of chip type snacks PLUS you get the afternoon cookies.. Also I never walk around anywhere that we travel barefooted but this home was so clean that I did. My husband even commented about this to Kathy. The bed was so comfortable that we did not want to get out of it. We watched TV one evening in bed and just relaxed and dozed off an on for hours. It was a relaxing escape that was just perfect. There was not one thing I would change about this trip other to have added an additional night!!

August stay in the Honeymoon cottage

4.0 on September 02, 2016

Overall very pleased. Overall very pleased. Very gracious hosts. Disappointed that the lake view was not better. Would suggest that a grab bar be placed in the deep tub in the Honeymoon room.


Pretty Much Perfect

5 on August 21, 2016

First and foremost, Kathy and Joe are lovely people and amazing hosts. We stayed two nights in the roomy and very comfortable Attic Suite. Their home is spacious, warm and inviting. Our two breakfasts were simply delicious -- and included dessert! On our second morning, I ran a 5K about a half hour out of town and our hosts were ever so gracious about serving us a late breakfast and allowing us to check out a tad late. Our thoughtfully-assembled package included a wine tasting, cheese, chocolate, and a gift certificate for local eating/shopping. All were delightful. Two very big thumbs up for a terrific experience.
