1837 Cobblestone Cottage

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


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.

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

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.

Excellent across the board!

The Attic suite we stayed in was beautiful. Every detail in this home is thoughtful and makes you want to linger. Fresh baked goods await you all day long. I cannot eat gluten. Kathleen made the most amazing brownies, warm biscuits, chocolate cupcakes and warm glazed-pumpkin muffins--all gluten free for me.We stayed for two days. We look forward to returning and staying longer. If Kathleen would've cooked dinner we would have never left the house.

Best Bed & Breakfast Experience!

I was absolutely delighted to be able to stay at the 1837 Cobblestone Cottage after following the Facebook page and lovely photos for a few months. The food and rooms live up to the hype! Both my husband and I agreed that this was our best bed and breakfast experience yet. Joe & Kathy are attentive, friendly, and welcome hosts. Kathy is also an excellent chef and photographer- making her food look almost as heavenly as it tastes. We are so excited to return soon with friends.

Amazing Two Nights

We stayed two nights over the holidays and it was amazing! The cottage was decorated beyond our wildest dreams, it was like a Christmas Wonderland. Our breakfasts each morning were delicious and the presentation made it a joy to get up and see what was in store for us. Kathleen and Joe were so friendly and had a extensive knowledge of the area and sent us on great outings.

Truly a treat!

My wife and I stayed at the Cobblestone Cottage while in town for the holidays. The stay was a real treat from the decor thru the welcoming service. Kathy was very helpful and made the most outstanding breakfast we have had. Anytime in the future we go to the Finger Lakes region we will be sure to stay with them.

The best bed and breakfast I have ever stayed at

5 on April 09, 2013

I stayed at 1837 Cobblestone Cottage and I can honestly say I have never stayed at a better B&B. This place was just wonderful all the way around. I found out that Kathy and Joe just recently became the new owners of the place. Well let me tell you that they went above and beyond. The place is just in excellent shape. A great downhome feel to the place. It is well maintained. Also the breakfast spreads were just out of this world amazing. I will definitely be recommending this great location to all. Thank you for a great relaxing weekend.

Amazing B&B

My fiance and I stayed at the Cobblestone Cottage while intown for a family wedding. Kathy made our stay extremely enjoyable! She was great company, a great cook and a great innkeeper! Our room was clean, comfortable and beautiful. The house had enjoyable common areas for us to relax in during our time at the B&B. The B&B has a beautiful view of Canandaigua Lake and is located very close to downtown Canandaigua where we enjoyed some shopping and great restaurants. We highly recomment this B&B to anyone looking to visit Canandaigua!

Clean and Bright

A perfect get away. Dawn was so welcoming - great energy. We brought our bicycles and took a great ride down West Lake Road. We were able to use the garage to store them. Drove into Canandaigua for dinner - just a few minutes away. Cobblestone Cottage is so Clean and Bright. It really is beautifully decorated and comfortable from the front porches to the guest rooms and all the rooms in between. From the first moment - you feel at home.
