Absolutely worth it!

4.8 on August 29, 2018

A warm and welcoming stay! Pattie and Margaret have thought of absolutely everything!

Great experience!

4.6 on August 29, 2018

We had a great first experience......the room was super comfortable, clean and cozy. A great mix of modern and rustic. The bathroom was the best part- huge soaking tub, a towel warmer and a local artisan soap. We were able to relax on the porch and enjoy the quiet. Dessert was left out for us at 8pm and we loved every bite! The breakfast was superb- like from a 5 star restaurant. The owners went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. They truly made us feel at home!

A return to paradise...our second visit

5 on August 27, 2018

I have to share not only the true beauty of this spacious property, the peacefulness, glorious accommodations, attention to detail, and gourmet meals but would be remiss to not compliment the lovely hostesses whose personalities add so much to your experience here. You are at home! They even requested our likes and dislikes in preparation of our meals (I appreciate so much as the fussy eater I am!) and record these for future visits. We love to relax in the large soaking tub in the evening, choose a movie to watch and enjoy the delicious dessert that is offered each night. Hugs to Pattie and Margaret! And thank you for the lighted candles at breakfast to celebrate our anniversary! We shall return!

A Wonderful Stay!

5 on August 26, 2018

Our hosts Margaret and Pattie were welcoming and very helpful. The dessert that evening was a special touch (and they even packaged one up for our son who was staying off site). Breakfast was fantastic. We loved the setting and the accommodations. We will certainly return.

Great Stay

4.8 on August 06, 2018

This property and the women running it were outstanding! The grounds were beautiful, the service was exceptional, the breakfast was incredible! We visited from a far distance and the staff was so helpful in giving us pointers on things to do, although relaxing at the property was among our favorite activities!

Outstanding b&b!!

5 on August 01, 2018

Great hosts and a beautiful piece of property

Exceeded my expectations! I would highly recommend!

5 on July 30, 2018

My husband and I recently stayed at the Chalet of Canandaigua. We had a great time. Pattie and Margaret, the innkeepers, were very personable and fun to chat with. They know the area very well and had many suggestions regarding dining and things to do. Our guest room was very clean and comfortable. The food served at the Chalet of Canandaigua was phenomenal! It was very unique and absolutely delicious. We will certainly be staying here again. I can't wait to go back to the Chalet of Canandaigua!

Overnight stay

Simply Wonderful

4.8 on July 12, 2018

My wife and I had a great time. The hosts were awesome, the property and house were amazing, and the breakfast was absolutely first rate. We will be returning, and we will be recommending it to friends and family.

Our all-time Favorite B&B!

5 on June 28, 2018

The Chalet is the absolute best place we have ever stayed! We enjoyed the Lee Suite for 2 days. We felt as if we were welcomed into our friends' home. The bed was comfortable. We had an enormous soaking tub. The setting is so peaceful. We had dessert each night. Every detail was considered. Margaret & Pattie scheduled a personal wine tour for us with Stompin' Good Times (which was absolutely fabulous!). We ate our delicious gourmet 3-course breakfasts on the patio each morning. We are still thinking about the roasted pear and the deviled eggs! It is very clear how much Margaret enjoys cooking and doing it for others. I am vegetarian, and that was carefully considered when she planned our breakfasts. We hope to make it back very soon!

Great B&B for a Get-away

5 on June 12, 2018

My wife and I had a great time at the Chalet of Canandaigua. Pattie & Margaret made us feel like part of the family. Their breakfasts were tremendous and our room was cozy and comfortable. Thanks for a great get-away!

Our annual getaway. Thanks for sharing family news.

5 on April 08, 2018

This is a very comfortable stay. It's like being home with relatives you really enjoy. Thanks so much.

Our third visit

5 on April 03, 2018

My wife and I have traveled worldwide, and while we have found many lodgings we enjoy, we have found few that combine comfort and hospitality to the degree that the Chalet does. The breakfasts are unique and delicious, and personal - prepared with each guest's preferences in mind. Our room was comfortable, but that comfort extended to the great room and porch where we were treated like family - or better! This was our third visit - each one has been thoroughly enjoyable. It most certainly will not be our last!

Secluded getaway

5 on February 28, 2018

Great place to stay - excellent breakfasts, Lee room is luxurious. Cozy fire in the common room in winter

Best place to stay in New York!

4.8 on February 22, 2018

We have had the pleasure of staying at the Chalet many times and every time we do not want to leave. From the rooms, the breakfast that is a 3 course dream to the wonderful hosts, Patty & Margaret it is truly the most relaxed you will ever be. I would love to keep this place a secret so we can go when ever we want but it is just too good not to share. Cant wait until our next visit, which I hope will be sooner rather then later.

Chalet at Canandaigua B&B

5 on February 14, 2018

The Chalet at Canandaigua B&B is an extraordinary establishment created by two amazing ladies. They attend to every last detail, making you feel very well taken care of. The setting is gorgeous. I would highly recommend this place!

Cozy, quiet, romantic.

5 on February 13, 2018

Stayed one night while dining at the wine and culinary center and had a wonderful experience. Our room was cozy and had everything we needed. Loved the soaking tub.

The Wow Factor is Unbelievable!

5 on February 06, 2018

I cannot even begin to describe how wonderful our stay was at the Canandaigua Chalet. What I can tell you is that I go back again and again. I would love to be there for every season of the year. The accommodations were outstanding. The breakfast was to die for and the hospitality was unparalleled.

Perfect winter chill!

5 on February 06, 2018

Perfect getaway in our fast-paced world! Location is great, rooms are outstanding, hospitality five star and every three course breakfast as well as our five course dinner were AMAZING! One day we stayed in and read all day next to the beautiful huge fireplace, the next we took the convenient five minute drive into town to check out some shops and do some wine and beer tasting. Perfect B&B and perfect location!

Another beautiful stay

5 on February 01, 2018

We just love it here. Peace, warmth, wonderful room, and spectacular breakfast. You will love this place - a returning guest

Great weekend with friends!

5 on January 27, 2018

We loved Chalet of Canandaigua! My sister was proposed to at this romantic location and invited me, my boyfriend, and another couple to celebrate for their proposal anniversary. When I say my expectations were exceeded, that's an understatement. Pattie and Margaret are outstanding hosts, and chefs. Since there were three couples, we took all three bedrooms for the night and it felt like we rented our own personal luxury cabin. I loved every minute of our stay. I plan to come back as soon as I possibly can. It's a perfect spot for a weekend away.

A wonderful location

5 on January 25, 2018

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at this charming log cabin set in scenic woodlands. The owners made us feel welcome and pampered; they were friendly and very knowledgeable about the spectacular Finger Lakes area. Extra touches like dessert waiting for us after an outing were much appreciated. The multi course breakfast was by far the best we've experienced at a B and B. The Chalet of Canandaigua is a must for any decerning Traveler.

Cozy Hidden Gem

4.4 on January 12, 2018

My wife and I stayed with a few friends at the Chalet of Canandaigua and had a wonderful experience. Pattie and Marge are gracious and accommodating hosts with a beautiful home and wonderful hearts. We'd absolutely recommend this B&B and stay here again.

Extraordinary Beauty, Comfort, Food, Hospitality

5 on December 19, 2017

Undoubtedly the finest B&B we have selected in many years of travel. We normally don't visit the same location twice, but for the wonderful wines of the Finger Lakes and the gracious hospitality and quiet beauty of the Chalet we'll make an exception.

Everything about our stay was outstanding!

5 on December 14, 2017

What a restful, blessed stay. The breakfast was truly one of a kind - elegant and delicious. Sitting by a big window overlooking snowglobe snow lightly falling, a cozy fire in the big field stone fireplace, christmas houses lit on the mantle, drinking coffee and having an amazing omelette. What a memory!

Great stay at the Chalet

4.8 on November 22, 2017

We stayed at the Chalet of Canandaigua for one night as a part of our "mini moon" and it was fantastic. The entire place is gorgeous, the room was nice and cozy and the service and dining was more than we could have expected. There was a slight mishap with a leak in the bathroom in our room and we were immediately given the option of a refund or another nights stay. We chose to stay again because we were just blown away by this place!

Fabulous spot not to me missed

4.8 on November 19, 2017

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights at the chalet. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left our expectations were exceeded. The place, people and experience is one not to be missed. The complimentary breakfast was delicious and our needs were catered to. The hosts are very knowledgeable about the area and quietly but competently offered very useful and practical tips about the area that enhanced our stay. Definitely worth the trip. Great for couples or friends who want a get away

Fantastic B & B

5 on November 08, 2017

Great B & B. Margaret & Patty go above & beyond to make stay enjoyable and comfortable. My wife & I have stayed twice & eagerly look forward to next trip.

Great Experience.

4.8 on November 01, 2017

Fantastic B & B! Margaret & Patty cannot do enough to make stay enjoyable & comfortable.

Wonderful experience

5 on October 31, 2017

We just spent a night at the chalet and I felt like I had been gone for a week! It is so relaxing,refreshing,and rejuvenating. The chalet itself is BEAUTIFUL, who can argue with the wood burning fireplace and a glass of wine or the fire pit on the back deck with a coffee watching for deer or the huge soaking tub in your bathroom looking at yes, another fireplace!! Breakfast the next morning was exquisite, delicious, and presented with such care. Would definitely recommend this retreat. Margaret and Pattie are very welcoming and very knowledgeable about B and B's.looking forward to returning. Louis and Maryalice.


5 on October 18, 2017

Pattie and Margaret are fantastic hosts. The location is perfect along with the views. Our Balcony room was wonderful. Never wanted to leave the soaking tub. Breakfast was phenomenal each day! It was our Anniversary & they even put candles on our plates. Can't say enough about the exceptional treatment.

Excellent bed and breakfast! Deserves top ratings!

5 on September 29, 2017

This is the best Bed and Breakfast I have ever stayed in. Very warm, friendly hosts who have extensive knowledge of the Finger Lakes area and gave superb advice. Excellent gourmet quality food! Relaxing environment in wood setting with pond and great place to relax and walk. Would highly recommend!

Elegant, comfortable, gourmet quality food

5 on September 27, 2017

Outstandingly beautiful setting and large suite at this b&b. Owners extremely personable and accommodating; breakfast delicious and creative. I highly recommend this b&b that is a terrific value. I can't rave enough about the setting, serenity and spacious comfort!

Wekkend get away

4.8 on September 19, 2017

We had a wonderful stay at the Canandaigua Chalet. Everything was beautiful-the setting, food and hosts. It was so nice the be able to have a relaxing get away so close to home!


4.8 on September 09, 2017

Something about the Chalet enchanted me before we even visited. Perhaps the sense of outdoors, the rustic but none-the-less comfortable setting, and the extraordinary breakfasts we read about prepared by the owners/hosts, Pattie and Margaret. Everything was delightful. The grounds, the warmth of their home, our room, Woodview Suite, the deck and the common space were all as promised and more. Pattie and Margaret were charming, offered great suggestions, and prepared exquisite multi-layered breakfasts served on an expansive porch overlooking the woods and their pond, where we also enjoyed tea and special deserts by the fire in the evening. Grateful for their suggestion to revisit Letchworth State Park which proved to be thoroughly enjoyable. Fantastic gorges to walk with beautiful vistas. The chalet was a definite WOW!

One of the nicest places we have stayed

4.8 on September 08, 2017

By now you've probably read all the glowing reviews of this place here and elsewhere. I have to say those reviews are well deserved. This place is very special. It's one of the nicest places we've every stayed. The facility itself is a beautiful log cabin inn, nicely furnished with verdant grounds. The breakfasts were gourmet 3 course extravaganzas with the just the right amount of food. But, the best part of our stay was our hosts. Pattie and Margaret were warm, gracious and attentive to all the details. They went out of their way to make their guests feel at home. I highly recommend the Chalet and hope to return someday.

Outstanding B & B

5 on September 07, 2017

We chose to stay at the Chalet of Canandaigua because of its excellent ratings, and it did not disappoint. Everything, from the moment we walked in the door, was superb: the food, the personalization, the room. We plan to make a return visit and highly recommend the C of C.


5 on August 25, 2017

It was a great place. If you like TV Cable you are limited. The breakfast was superior and they meet the request of food allergies. It was such an amazing experience. Highly recommend you spend some time at the chalet.

Nice getaway

4.8 on August 17, 2017

The house is beautiful and peaceful, located a ways back from the road. The owners make you feel very welcome and the breakfast is outstanding.

Chalet at Canandaigua. Elegant and serene. Brilliant atmosphere.

Chalet at Canandaigua. Elegant and serene. Brilliant atmosphere.

Great find in the Finger Lakes

5 on July 27, 2017

We spent two evenings at the charming Chalet of Canandaigua - it was a very enjoyable experience. After we made our reservation, Patty reached out to inquire about any special needs that we have - I am a vegetarian so I was pleasantly surprised to have been asked. The chalet is bucolic and cozy – it sits well off the road and on a hilltop with lovely views of the property, it is very quiet and relaxing. It is located in an area convenient to explore much of the Finger Lakes Region. Our room, the Balcony suite, was extremely spacious, clean and comfortable. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Margaret who gave us a tour and then sat with us to explain many things to do and places to visit - she even provided a map. Since we stayed on a Saturday and Sunday, she outlined our dining options, explaining that some restaurants were not open Sunday - once decided they made our reservations. Each morning before heading out, we enjoyed a substantial breakfast on the porch – Patty and Margaret share the cooking and do a great job! Each evening between 8-9pm, they set out delicious desserts, next to the tray was a sheet of paper where you indicated your preferred breakfast time – each meal is prepared at the time of your seating. Overall, it was a lovely stay – Patty and Margaret are fabulous hosts and care about their guests - we look forward to visiting again.

Quite, romantic and relaxing day in Finger Lakes

4.4 on July 18, 2017

We stayed our last night of 10 day trip here. It is close from the downtown yet in the middle of trees and nature, so we enjoyed peaceful time. The breakfast on the patio was great way to start the day. Would love to come back.

Superior B&B Experience

5 on July 14, 2017

Our stay at The Chalet of Canandaigua was one of the most remarkable experiences that we have had at any B&B over the years. The Chalet is a beautiful blend of rustic and modern. The rooms are spacious, beautifully appointed, and well equipped. Our bathroom was large and modern with every need addressed. The Chalet itself is a striking structure with a very interesting history located on the forested hills west of Lake Canandaigua, NY. Frankly, many B&B's are striking; however, what sets the Chalet apart are the innkeepers, Margaret and Patti. They are blessed with an intuitive gift of hospitality and care. It was their passion to make our stay with them special and uniquely customized to our likes and needs. Beside their knowledge of the area and desire that we enjoy the unique character of the Finger Lakes region, one of their most remarkable talents is customizing their breakfasts to what we enjoyed eating while expanding our personal cuisine. While this might sound "cute" they pulled this off with great culinary skill and vision - no breakfast was ever the same, a promise that they make to all of their guests. Margaret and Patti made our experience most special, one that we hope to repeat in the near future. Well done, beautiful and unique experience - highly recommend the Chalet of Canandaigua. Ed and Louise, June 26-29, 2017

Charming and attentive

3.6 on July 07, 2017

From the moment you walk in you feel welcome and treated like an old friend. The common areas and grounds are inviting and very well maintained. The breakfast is presented with pride and prepared like a 5-star hotel / resort. Overall a great stay!

A Wonderful Stay

4.4 on June 19, 2017

The Chalet of Canandaigua was excellent for our first Bed & Breakfast experience. It was a beautiful, rustic retreat not too far from home for us. The rooms were spotless, and the modern bathroom with the towel warmer and 6 foot soaker tub was just gorgeous! They thought of every little detail and were so genuinely nice about caring for our needs. A truly wonderful experience that I would recommend to anyone!

Best Honeymoon Ever

5 on June 19, 2017

Here's the nitty gritty: the hostesses couldn't have been better, the breakfasts more delicious, the scenery more tranquil or the room cozier. We'll be coming back every year.

Chalet of Canandaigua Best B&B!

4.6 on June 06, 2017

It was a great experience to be able to stay at the Chalet of Canandaigua! Pattie and Margaret thought of everything to make our stay a truly pleasant one. They were also very helpful in recommending restaurants, sites to see, alternate routes, etc. Everything was very clean, and their attention to detail was fantastic. It was a perfect get-away.

Fantastic Getaway location

4.6 on June 02, 2017

Margaret and Pattie are delightful and want to make sure you enjoy your stay at The Chalet. They can point out all of the fantastic activities Canandaigua has to offer, they cook a mean breakfast, and their desserts are delicious. They are so friendly and kind and want nothing more than to provide you the best service they can. The Chalet itself is beautiful and the room we stayed in (the Lee suite) is big, comfortable, and romantic. The Chalet is located far back off of a main country road, which makes for a very private experience. My wife and I loved it here and wish we could have stayed longer! We highly recommend this beautiful B&B.

Best B&B!!!

5 on May 06, 2017

Best B&B! Place is awesome! Innkeepers are fantastic! Food is to die for! Five stars every time!!!

Perfect Getaway

5 on April 12, 2017

This was a perfect getaway to relax and spend some time with my fiance. Margaret and Patti were very welcoming from the time we arrived until the moment we left. We were greeted and given a tour of the Chalet. Every room was beautifully decorated. Dessert was waiting for us as we arrived back at night after a day in downtown Canandaigua and a delicious three-course breakfast the following morning. We enjoyed our stay so much that my fiance and I have booked another getaway following our wedding as a mini vacation.

Cozy spot for a winter getaway!

5 on March 16, 2017

My wife and I spent an amazing weekend here in February! The balcony sweet was beautiful and cozy. The through-the-wall fireplace, soaker tub and double shower were incrediby luxurious. The three-course breakfasts were absolutely amazing and the deserts at the end of the night were a wonderful treat! Pattie and Maggie were wonderfully nice, super accommodating and helpful in giving great recommendations about things to do and eat in the area. I even left a USB drive in my room and Pattie went out of her way to find it after we left and ship it back! Great experience and looking forward to staying there again!

First B and B experience the best!

5 on March 01, 2017

I would recommend the Chalet of Canandaigua to anyone looking for quiet luxury and excellent service. The owners were warm and knowledgeable and the food was sublime. I can't wait to go back!

The best Birthday presemt!

5 on January 25, 2017

The Chalet and it'seems owners were amazing! It is a beautiful place to escape to. The owners are wonderful people and made us some very unique and delicious items for breakfast. You definitely have to go there to appreciate all that I am saying about it. They have every detail done to a tee. We really enjoyed our stay.

Best bed and breakfast

5 on November 19, 2016

Absolutely loved staying here. Patty and Margaret are so wonderful and made us feel so welcome. This was our second stay and they welcomed us with open arms. They make you feel like you're staying with family. The rooms are gorgeous and immaculate. Delicious gourmet breakfast every morning at your convenient time and dessert every night. Cannot wait to visit again.

Fall getaway.

5 on October 21, 2016

This is our third visit to the Chalet. We really love coming here. The attention to detail is evident in every part of the stay. From entering the Chalet, to the beautiful rooms, the dessert and then delicious breakfast. Margaret and Patty are wonderful people and make you feel so at home.

One of the Best BNB's we have ever visited

5 on October 12, 2016

The Chalet has the beyond highest expectations of service. They certainly take care of you as a guest by offering suggestions, making reservations, giving you your quiet time if needed, incredible in house dining experiences, exceptional food, and beautiful accommodations. We had mentioned we were going to eat dinner on the back patio by bringing in food and when we returned from a busy touring day the hosts had left us dining plates, utensils, etc. Awesome service. The accommodations even have plenty of electrical plugs where you need them. My husband and I travel a lot and we highly recommend the Chalet.

Most beautiful setting ...

4.6 on October 07, 2016

The Chalet is snugged in the trees with a view of a lovely pond through the tree branches. It's just beautiful. They have a large deck with fans and shades and I spent time just rocking and appreciating the view. The room was rustic but nice. The linens and the updated huge bathroom were amazing. Now, the breakfast. Oh my. Several courses of excellent and beautifully-presented food. I'd love to return.

5 on October 05, 2016

We were celebrating a special occasion and the chalet and innkeepers were wonderful. Our visit was everything I had hoped for and more. We are already working on a winter ski trip to Bristol mountain which will definitely include a night in the chalet with dinner. Thank you to Pattie and Margaret for an incredible stay.


5 on September 28, 2016

Lovely property, peaceful. Rooms are special as are the hosts.

Peaceful Retreat

5 on September 26, 2016

This Inn is in the most beautiful location. Huge trees surround their large deck. The rooms are a bit rustic but very comfortable. The bathroom in my room was huge, new and luxurious. Wish I had it at home! The breakfasts are lovely and you will certainly not go hungry. I look forward to returning.

Fantastic B and B

5 on September 23, 2016

My husband and I recently returned home from a 3 night stay at The Chalet (9/15/16 through 9/17/16). This was our second visit with Pattie and Margaret and we will return again! As I overheard Margaret saying to another guest one morning, "The details are everything", and that philosophy is evident in everything about this B and B. This is a large log home with lots of public space for lounging and a huge porch where we ate breakfast and enjoyed the peaceful wooded grounds. Our room was perfect- king size bed, luxury bathroom, and tastefully decorated. The breakfasts are AMAZING! Pattie is a gifted chef! Margaret presents the 3 course breakfasts and then joins us in conversation and laughter. We love Pattie and Margaret! They feel like family so that we look forward to seeing them again. They are quick to help with planning our days and recommending places to eat (and making our reservations). EVERYTHING about this B and B is wonderful!

Second Stay - Still Outstanding!

5 on August 22, 2016

This was our second visit at the Chalet and it was just as good as the first. Great to see Maggie and Patty!


4.2 on August 05, 2016

The Chalet has the perfect setting, quiet and private but close to downtown Canandaigua. Patti and Margaret were the ultimate hosts. Breakfast was superb.


5 on August 04, 2016

Patti and Margaret are the best hosts ever. Our room was amazing, with a comfy bed and an enormous soaking tub. And their breakfasts cannot be beat!

Tops after many

4.6 on July 26, 2016

Just beautiful we travel thru the finger lakes in summer always B and B . Always enjoy ourselves but the chalet was definitely the best .Again not only beautiful but so many comfortable spots to sit and enjoy. This is the first B and B I really want to visit in the middle of winter. The land around is so serine and lovely to look about next to the many rooms and fireplaces

Wonderful Bed and Breakfast experience!!

5 on July 25, 2016

Outstanding Bed and Breakfast. 3 course breakfasts were amazing. Rooms are beautiful. Loved the large porch. Margaret and Pattie were so friendly and helpful Definitely will return.

A must B&B to stay at! Everything is perfect!

5 on July 21, 2016

My name is Kevin, I got a room at this B&B since it was the only available room on a concert night within a reasonable distance. Could have asked nothing more, what a quite, private and perfect place! I highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a room for a night or more! Extremely clean, huge rooms, shower to fit 5 people, massive tub for a couple, bed and pillows will make you not want to wake up! This is like going to your friends/family's house to stay the night, very "home like" feeling. Host was down to Earth and friendly. I travel a lot and have stayed at a range of hotels/motels ranging in quality, this place is the best ever! It has a long curvy driveway that leads you into the woods/forest and can not hear any road/car noise and is very private. Extremely clean, no dust, no dirt anywhere, rooms large enough to be like an apartment! Full king size bed, couch, chairs etc..One of the best parts was that they were able to provide my friend and I with transportation to and from the concert! That was amazing since who wants to rise drinking and driving nowadays. I can not speak enough and rave about this place, it is a MUST if you are looking a perfect place to stay! If you are turned away buy the cost per night, stop, it's worth it!

Anniversary 2016

5 on July 20, 2016



4.6 on July 20, 2016

My Husband & I stayed at the Chalet for 3 nights, though we wish we would have booked for one or two more! The two owners/hostesses were kind, helpful, and attentive to their customers and to detail. We staying in the Woodsview room, which has an amazing sunflower-rain shower head in the tub- incredibly relaxing after a day of hiking! There is a super cute propane stove that grants serene ambiance to to the room. The bed was one of the best comfort sleeps we have experienced in our many travels! A few other treasures of this place: It is away from the town, the grand porch is a sweet place to sit and read or visit with a glass of wine, the breakfasts served were healthy and well presented 3 course servings, and the evening desserts were divine (cheesecake, raspberry pie, & carrot cake)! Pattie & Margaret were great at offering guidance during our stay from directions to the best wineries in the Lake areas! If you are traveling through Upstate NY, we would highly suggest this Bed & Breakfast as a place to rest & recharge!

Charming B&B

5 on July 07, 2016

My husband and I stayed here for our mini-honeymoon getaway. We absolutely loved everything about our stay. Our room was spacious and clean. Pattie and Margaret made us feel comfortable from the first moment we met them. They were helpful and knowledgeable about the area and our desserts and breakfasts were amazing!! We can't wait to go back :)

We should have eaten in

5 on July 06, 2016

My wife and I recently stayed at the Chalet and thoroughly enjoyed it. Beautiful, tranquil setting, friendly hosts and unbelievable food. Our trip to the finger lakes was wonderful. My wife's only comment to me on how it could have been better was if we had eaten at the Chalet each evening because the one evening we did eat at the Chalet, the food was by far the best meal we had eaten during our trip. We are looking forward to our next stay with Margaret and Pattie.

Simply Exquisite

5 on July 05, 2016

The Chalet is an exquisite bed and breakfast and their three course breakfasts are outstanding. Patti and Maggie are wonderful and pay attention to every detail. They ensure your stay is comfortable, relaxing and a treat. The balloon ride (which is an additional charge) is also an amazing and wonderful thing to do. The Chalet is a "must stay" place if you're going to the Finger Lakes. Patrice Hew, Basking Ridge NJ.

Relaxing & very accomodating

4.4 on June 25, 2016

Very gracious hosts! Made reservations for us to dine in town near cmac where we attended a concert, got us on our way with an orientation to the area & ammenities in around. Beautiful log cabin in finger lakes region - rooms were very comfy & suit was just perfect! We plan to return in the Fall for some wine touring!

Wonderful Experience!!

5 on June 09, 2016

Everything was first class!!

Amazing stay, Won't be our last!!

5 on June 07, 2016

Such a wonderfully beautiful place, with fantastic service and hospitality! Cannot wait to visit again next year! Thank you Pattie & Margaret for such a wonderful experience! Jess & Scott

2nd stay at the Chalet - Won't be our last!

5 on May 11, 2016

After spending our honeymoon at the Chalet of Canandaigua more than 6 years ago - my husband and I returned for a relaxing weekend to celebrate our "babymoon." The entire Chalet is spotlessly clean and beautiful. The decor is calm and perfect. Our suite had beautiful amenities (fire place, comfortable leather armchairs, fridge/microwave/glassware/etc...) and the perfect bathroom (huge soaking tub and large shower). From the moment we arrived Pattie and Margaret were gracious and kind. We received recommendations for dinner, sites to see during our trip and Pattie was even able to get us into a tire shop the next morning to repair a flat tire we got on our way up. The breakfasts were out of this world - as was the kind conversations with Pattie and Margaret. Can't wait for another chance to come back!

The Best of The Best

Innkeepers make or break a B&B. You can have the most beautiful, well-appointed and comfortable B&B on the planet, but without an engaging and caring innkeeper, that beautiful, well-appointed and comfortable B&B is just another hotel room. The Chalet of Canandaigua’s innkeepers, Margaret Covington and Pattie English, are the finest innkeepers we have ever had the pleasure to meet. These two curators pay attention to every detail that make their secluded luxurious and spacious B&B overlooking their own private pond on a hillside just outside of Canandaigua a dream stay for their guests. As if by magic, enchanting votive candlelight, a roaring fire in the great room, and a nightly “dessert” appear out of nowhere as just a few examples of the delicate touches Patti and Margaret bring to the Chalet. And the breakfasts! You want the night to pass swiftly to see what these creative culinary geniuses set before you at breakfast the next day. Their imaginations seem unlimited when putting together subtle delicate elements that make your taste buds come alive with every bite. The idyllic setting, the roomy comfortable bed chambers, the extraordinary breakfasts and the caring interaction with the guests by these remarkable innkeepers make The Chalet of Canandaigua truly one of a kind.

this is a great place for a couples getaway. we were blown away with the attention to detail and service we received. expect an experience to remember. the bathtub alone was worth it!

A great getaway!

4.8 on March 16, 2016

There is a reason that the ladies at the Chalet receive award after award. We have been going to this retreat for almost 6 years now, and if we miss a year we can feel it! The Chalet is a tranquil and relaxing haven for my wife and I. The rooms are quiet, warm, and inviting. Walk through the door and let your stress melt away. Then as if that wasn't enough, breakfast is always to die for! A five star resort with everything one needs to refresh!

Love this place!

5 on March 09, 2016

We make a visit the to Chalet an annual event. It is absolutely stunning and cozy all at the same time. The food is the best part. Their breakfast is out of this world. You will not be disappointed with any aspect of your stay here,

Excellent as always!

5 on March 06, 2016

A return visit we were eagerly anticipating given a previous stay. It lived up to our expectation in every way - location, customer servic, inn keepers, breakfast, etc. Thank you and highly recommend.

Awesome Stay

5 on February 20, 2016

My sister and I needed a get away! The Chalet was this and so much more. The breakfast both days was beyond awesome. The hosts Pattie and Maggie went above and beyond to make our stay memorable.

An Amazing Night Away

5 on February 05, 2016

My husband and I stayed in the Balcony Suite to have a night away from our little one. We thoroughly enjoyed the cozy atmosphere (especially having the double sided fireplace next to the big tub). Margaret and Pattie were both so accommodating. We opted to have dinner there (in addition to the usual breakfast). Everything was absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend considering eating in. The place itself was beautiful and secluded and we would definitely go back!

Love this Place!!!

5 on January 06, 2016

This was my husband and I's 2nd visit to The Chalet for our anniversary. Pattie and Margaret are wonderful hosts, knowledgeable in the area and make you feel at home. We are making this a yearly tradition of ours. Stay here! You will not be disappointed! Kristy and Brett Waterman

Magnificently glorious!

5 on January 03, 2016

All I can say is............WOW! Margaret and Patty are wonderful hosts. Everything was spotless, and the attention to detail is amazing. Loved the two sided fireplace and the deep pedestal soaking tub. Love, love, love! Definitely a place to get away, rest, and relax.


5 on November 29, 2015

As first timers of a B & B we weren't quite sure what to expect. From the moment we entered until the time we departed, our stay was exceptional! Our hosts were very welcoming and very helpful....offering to help make us reservations for dinner that night. And giving us ideas of things to do in the area. Our room was superb! Beautifully decorated. Very warm and cozy. Loved the large soaking tub, and towel warmer! The whole chalet was warm & welcoming. The awesome 3 course breakfast the next morning was scrumptious. A very relaxing stay, which is exactly what we needed and exactly what we received! We will definately be back!


4.8 on November 23, 2015

Beautiful getaway nestled in the woods. Amazing Inn Keepers. Delicious, 3 course breakfast.

Great stay at the Chalet!

5 on October 12, 2015

My husband and I had a 3 night stay at the Chalet gifted to us as a Christmas present and decided to use it for our 1-year anniversary. What an awesome experience! These two are incredible hosts, offering advice and input where needed but allowing for plenty of privacy as well. The breakfasts were delicious; you can't beat sitting on their porch on a sunny fall morning while sipping coffee and eating local fresh foods. Dessert placed out each night was an added bonus! Each day Pattie and Margaret shared ideas for things to do, the best views to see, best wineries to sample, and where to locate the best grape pies! We can't rave enough about the experience we had a the Chalet! It's the complete Finger Lakes package.

Another great stay!

5 on July 29, 2015

Our second stay with Pattie and Margaret and it was just perfect! Truly one of the best bed and breakfast experiences we've had. The rooms are great and the breakfast was out of this world. Highly recommended!

A truly outstanding experience

5 on June 02, 2015

This was one of the best vacations I've ever had. Beautiful (and clean) rooms, amazing views, friendly welcoming innkeepers, and delicious, creative breakfasts. Every aspect of our stay was well thought out. We felt comfortable and pampered. I highly recommend the Chalet and cannot wait to go back.

Luxurious Comfort

5 on April 13, 2015

A beautiful place to step away after a day of enjoying a day around the lake. Easy access to the town of Canandaigua that offers fun restaurants with varied atmosphere. Our outing was impromptu at the end of March and we were so pleasantly surprised. Every corner is a place of comfort and peace. Want to get back in nice weather to sit upon the vast porch to enjoy the outdoor haven that it offers. AND must mention that the breakfast was creative and very delicious! Pattie and Margaret were a pleasure and really know how to offer up the facilities and their care such that we quickly felt right at home. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Chalet of Canandaigua

5 on April 09, 2015

This was a wonderful experience! We can't wait to stay there again,.

Simply the Best

5 on March 22, 2015

3 nights. Great hosts, great breakfasts, great place. Comfortable inviting rooms. Beautiful great room with a fireplace. Perfect for sitting and relaxing and reading. Don't take my word for it. Go.

Awesome B&B!

5 on March 08, 2015

I've been to a few bed and breakfasts and this is by far the best I've visited! The Chalet is cozy and welcoming and the attention to detail is excellent. The owners are friendly and accommodating. The rooms are very comfortable and roomy. The breakfast is delicious and the owners go out of their way to make something you'll be happy with. My husband and I stayed in March and I've already planned our next trip! A must try!

best B&B we've ever stayed in

5 on February 27, 2015

Absolutely the best, worth every penny. Excruciating detail and tons of luxuries. I recommend the add-on dinner as well it is a four course professionally prepared meal.

A wonderful B and B

4.8 on February 04, 2015

This was our first time for my wife and I staying at a Bed and Breakfast and I must say the bar has been set high for our expectations of other B and B's we may stay at in the future. From the warm greeting at the front door to the hug at the end of the stay, it was a great experience. Pattie and Margaret make a great effort to insure your stay meets and exceeds your expectations. They take time at the beginning of the stay to give a detailed overview of what's available to do in the area, recommend area restaurants and even make reservations for you. The morning meals are great and they never repeat. By the end of a 3 day stay you feel as if you've been staying a relatives house and not a B and B. The owners are warm, friendly and will engage in casual conversation without ever being intrusive. It was a great experience, can't wait to come back!

Excellent, Warm & Cozy

5 on January 28, 2015

My husband and I along with another couple enjoyed a warm and cozy one night stay at this lovely, beautiful log home. We were greeted by Pattie and Margaret whom both made us feel at home. We stayed there for a 4 course, creative, gourmet dinner. They went above and beyond and really catered to my dietary needs. At restaurants I usually just skip some courses, but Pattie and Margaret made sure I would be able to enjoy something during every course. Not an easy task. Wish they could cook for me everyday. After dinner we relaxed by the fire and enjoyed some wine from the Wine Trail we attended earlier in the day. It was so nice and relaxing. Our rooms were top notch from the mattresses to the bedding to the bathroom with heated towels and a fireplace. In the morning we were served a gourmet 3 course breakfast. Delicious and it wasn't casseroles. Can't wait to come back. Excellent Service!


4.8 on January 23, 2015

The best night stay ever. My husband surprised me for my birthday, my special one. He knows I love log homes, and this one was perfect . Everything about the B&B was top notch. Pattie & Margaret treated us like family.I am ready to go back very soon!

Relaxing one-night getaway

4.4 on January 08, 2015

Beautiful home and excellent service. It snowed the morning we were there and the view was gorgeous. Breakfast was creative and delicious.

Wonderful stay

4.8 on January 01, 2015

My husband and I stopped for one night and got to stay in the balcony room. It was private, snug and included a wonderful bath tub. We had a great rest and enjoyed the fireplace and skylights. Our three course breakfast was superb, far better than any we have had at a B&B. We are definitely going to go return.

Spectacular Inn!

4.8 on December 26, 2014

Celebrated an early Christmas at this wonderful winter wonderland! Grounds were snow covered and romantic. Chalet is a huge log cabin thats rustic, charming and enchanting with lots of character. Proprietors are friendly, knowledgable about the surrounding areas and very accommodating. Great recommendations for daily activities and dinner reservations. Breakfasts are gourmet three courses of food elevated to an art form! Absolutely delicious! We are a very travel experienced couple who enjoy the comforts of home mixed with a high degree of quality and level of service. We found both staying here at the Chalet and with the hostesses.

A Wonderful Stay

5 on December 23, 2014

Me and my partner had an amazing stay at this beautiful bed and breakfast. It was definitely worth saving up for and we look forward to staying again. The hostesses were amazingly welcoming, but also gave us plenty of space to enjoy personal time together. Our room was private and cozy. We stayed during the cold weather and the snow was breathtaking outside of the cabin. We will certainly be coming back during warmer weather! The food was perfect - delicious and creative! Thank you so much for the perfect bed and breakfast stay Pattie and Margaret!

Wonderful B&B

5 on October 26, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay at this charming B&B. It was a last minute booking as a surprise 36th Anniversary gift for my husband. Margaret was superb--she made us feel welcome immediately and gave us numerous suggestions as to choices for dining in the local area. From a delicious Red Velvet dessert available to us the evening of our arrival to a wonderful breakfast the next morning, she treated us royally. The Woodsview Suite was great. We would absolutely recommend Chalet of Canandaigua to our friends and we hope to return soon.

Wonderful for our mini-honeymoon

5 on October 23, 2014

We stayed one night after our wedding for a mini-honeymoon and it was the perfect place! Pattie and Margaret were so helpful with helping us reserve places for dinner, and our breakfast was so delicious and unique. We loved our room, especially the bathroom with the fireplace! Thanks so much for a wonderful night!


5 on October 18, 2014

This chalet sits on 30 acres. Yet it is conveniently located. Sitting out on their deck sipping wine, well, after a hectic day it was so relaxing! And beautiful. They have heaters on the deck for those cool evenings, though we did not need them. The rooms were very nice, bathrooms as well. Everything was very clean. Breakfasts were amazing. The ladies were very helpful with recommendations and even called for reservations for us. They make you feel at home! We would definitely go back.

A great place to stay in the Finger Lakes region...

5 on September 30, 2014

This was our first excursion to the Finger Lakes and the Chalet was chosen for a night's stay based on the evaluations on TripAdvisor. It truly lived up to it expectations. Finding it can be a small challenge if you're relying on a GPS. But once you're there, Margaret and Pattie go out of their way to make you feel at home. It doesn't take long to feel like you're part of the family. The location was great. Room was very nice with amenities. Breakfast in the morning was a three course meal that was excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Chalet to other travelers and will most likely stay there again myself. It was a very, very nice experience.

The best B&B anywhere

5 on September 22, 2014

we won't stay anywhere else when we go to Canandaigua.

First stop on our mini-honeymoon

5 on September 21, 2014

This was the perfect first stop for my new wife and I's mini-honeymoon. The Chalet is beautiful and the surrounding property is equally as beautiful. We stayed in the balcony suite and it was so comfortable and the bathroom was huge. Maggie and Patti are very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area and gave us ideas for places to visit and places to find a good dinner. The breakfast was phenomenal and my wife and I were very happy. After breakfast we sat on the deck and enjoyed the morning. We would definitely recommend the Chalet of Canandaigua to anyone looking to get away.

An Absolutely Wonderful Stay

5 on September 12, 2014

My husband and I spent four nights at the Chalet of Canandaigua last week. We have stayed at many B&Bs, but this was by far one of the very best. The location was just perfect for our visit to the wineries of the Finger Lake Region. The log home was such a delight to return to each evening. Our room was comfortable and clean and the bathroom was terrific. The two-person soaking tub was so relaxing and enjoyable. The breakfast each morning was a different selection and was most delicious and creative. It was so filling that we skipped lunch a few times. The best part of the whole experience, however, was the warm hospitality of our hosts, Pattie and Maggie. They went above and beyond to insure that our stay was comfortable and relaxing. They provided us with information of the area and excellent suggestions of places to see and eat. We would love to return to the Chalet and would definitely recommend it to everyone.

Beautiful getaway

5 on September 12, 2014

This was our first B&B stay ever. It was very comfortable and cozy and we did not feel like our privacy was ever invaded.

Wonderful Chalet

5 on September 11, 2014

The Chalet is a wonderful experience. The bedroom was spacious and the king bed slept very well. The bathroom was equally large with a comfortable soaking tub. The house was beautiful and kept immaculate. The breakfasts were 3 course gourmet meals using unique local foods whenever possible. Our hostesses could not have been nicer. We had a delightful 2 days in finger lake country.

Charming Chalet in Canandaigua

4.6 on August 26, 2014

Pattie and Margaret made us feel right at home in our first trip to both a B&B and the Finger Lakes. The chalet was picturesque and rustic; our experience was peaceful and relaxing; and breakfast was innovative and savory. If I didn't know better, I'd have thought that Pattie and Margaret also worked for the Finger Lakes Chamber of Commerce. They superbly recommended restaurants, events, hiking, wineries, and grape pies! We are going back.

Great place

4.8 on August 13, 2014

Hosts and facility were fabulous! For us, this was a splurge, but we were glad we did it. Breakfast was so delicious and there were many special little touches throughout the place/stay.

Stunning home and warm hospitality!

4.8 on August 12, 2014

The Chalet of Canandaigua was fantastic! Stunning home with friendly and informative hosts! We loved hanging out on the massive porch for breakfast or a late night drink. Many thanks for a wonderful time:)

Wonderful Stay

4.8 on August 03, 2014

The Chalet was a wonderful place to stay at. They truely went above and beyond our expectations for a bed and breakfast. It was our first stay at one and it definitely set the bar for what we'll look for in any future stays. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting for a nice weekend getaway. The rooms were beautiful and were exactly how they were pictured and the service was second to none. Pattie and Margaret did an excellent job to make us feel welcomed too and were very helpful.

Fantastic Hideway

5 on August 01, 2014

I found this gorgeous gem after some research and was so happy with my pick. I stayed here in June for one night as a gift for my sister's birthday--this did not disappoint. The innkeepers were so friendly and accommodating and the house is so rustic, yet elegant. Did I mention immaculate! Breakfast was amazing and I look forward to going back soon. You will be happy staying here:)

Highligh of our trip

5 on August 01, 2014

Patti and Margaret are fabulous hostesses who welcome guests and provide them with a gorgeous setting inside and out. Guests receive a delicious gourmet breakfast and evening treats as well as sightseeing suggestions. Do as much as you like or relax in their cozy great room or on their lovely porch and drink in the views. We highly recommend a stay at the Chalet and hope to return ourselves. Pat & John

Wonderful B+B.

5 on July 07, 2014

One of the best B+B's we've been to. Pattie and Margaret are wonderful. They go out of their way to make it a memorable experience. Can't wait to return.

Great for a getaway.

4.2 on June 23, 2014

Quiet, peaceful! Wonderful breakfast, could not have been better. Hosts are charming and friendly. Rooms have everything you might need and are comfortable.

Rustic luxury

4.6 on June 18, 2014

The Chalet of Canandaigua is without a doubt the best B&B at which I've ever stayed. Many B&Bs have nice rooms, great service, and good food. But I have never experienced a room as beautiful and as thoughtfully appointed as ours at the Chalet (case in point: towel warmers!). As for the service, my case in point is that owners Pattie and Margaret keep a log of the items they serve their guests for breakfast -- year after year -- so as not to serve them the same thing twice! I wish our one-night stay could have been a one-month stay, but perhaps we'll return some day and wear out our welcome. I hope so.

Outstanding B&B

5 on June 04, 2014

What a pleasure to stay at the Chalet of Canandaigua. Pattie and Margaret were wonderful and full of knowledge. The food was so wonderful. A perfect start to each of the days we were there. We did booked a hot air balloon ride from Liberty balloon co. and left right from the beautiful front lawn of the B&B. It was just an all around amazing experience. I have travelled internationally a lot and I have to say this place was one of the best I have ever stayed in. Great people, great space, great food .. just an all around gem.


5 on June 04, 2014

Excellent service and bountiful amenities. Beautiful grounds and lovely interior. Enjoyed our stay tremendously. Would highly recommend this B&B! Our hosts Margaret and Patty were delightful, helpful, wonderful cooks and lovely people.

Awesome Bed and Breakfast

4.8 on June 01, 2014

Great place to stay: beautiful location, unmatched service, delux accommodations, gourmet breakfast. Would recommend without any reservations.

Can't wait to go back!!

5 on May 29, 2014

Margaret and Pattie are absolutely amazing hosts. Our weekend could not have gone better, all thanks to the wonderful attention to detail, and excellent service from the owners. The house is amazing, perfectly clean, and every detail is taken care of. I cannot wait to go back!

Great stay

5 on May 17, 2014

Very comfortable -- superb breakfast. Peaceful and relaxing -- would highly recommend.

Chalet of Canandaigua - WOW!

4.6 on May 17, 2014

We stayed one night in the Balcony Suite which has the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. The modern bathroom is very spacious with large soaking tub and large multiple spray shower. There are skylights that open and multiple lighting options to set the mood as well as a view of the kitchen. The property and building is beautiful and well maintained. The food from the late evening desert to the outstanding breakfast was stand out. The owners were very friendly and provided warm caring service. The only small shortcoming I had was the water pressure was a bit low, which limited the potential of the multi spray shower.

First time staying at B&B

4.4 on May 15, 2014

This was the first time my wife and I stayed B&B. What an awesome experience. Just driving up to the chalet was breath taking. The hosts were excellent and very helpful finding anything we needed or wanted to do. A three-course breakfast every morning was absolutely amazing. You will not leave hungry after breakfast. I definitely recommend this to other people and I plan on going back again.

Nice get away

5 on March 16, 2014

Beautiful bed and breakfast, very clean. Amazing breakfast. Pattie and Margaret were wonderful, they knew the area very well and could give recommendations of things to do and restaurants to eat at. We hope to visit again. Thanks for a wonderful get away!

Doesn't get better than this!

5 on March 14, 2014

What a wonderful place! The rooms were beautiful. Breakfasts were amazing. The owners were so accommodating and we loved chatting with them. Money well spent.


5 on March 07, 2014

This one of one of the most relaxing, enjoyable stays my wife and I have ever had. This was a belated Valentine's Day getaway. The rooms are beautiful and meticulous down to the smallest details. Patti and Margaret are great. They definitely love what they do. They helped us with dinner reservations as well as things to do on our trip home. They shared stories and made us feel welcome. The atmosphere is very warm and relaxing. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and way more than we expected. They are truly talented in the culinary arts. We will definitely consider having them prepare dinner for us on our next visit. We unfortunately only stayed one night. This is the only time my wife and I were ever saddened that we had to leave such an establishment and we are eagerly planning our next visit. If you are looking for an amazing getaway or are going to be in the Canandaigua area, we would highly recommend The Chalet. Thank you to Patti and Margaret for everything

Fantastic in EVERY way!

5 on March 02, 2014

We have just returned from a 2-night stay at the Chalet of Canadaigua. It was a surprise stay for our anniversary and our expectations were much more than met! The Inn itself and the entire stay was splendid in every way. The chalet is beautiful with fantastic attention to detail. The owners, Margaret and Patty - are top notch and consummate hosts. They were welcoming, generous, gracious, friendly, and professional. They made our stay memorable in every way. We enjoyed every moment of our time with them. The evening desserts and three-course breakfasts included in the stay were exceptional and true culinary creations. We had the pleasure of the optional 4-course dinner one evening, and we would highly recommend it. The setting is intimate and with a real fire in the room. Each course is individually delivered and presented. Margaret and Patty have mastered the perfect balance of attentive and respectful. The dinner is an experience not to be missed. It was obvious that both Margaret and Patty genuinely cared that we enjoyed our stay. Upon arrival, Margaret thoroughly discussed with us options of places to eat and to visit in the area. She checked in with us again during breakfast to answer any questions. After discussing our interests and timeframe, Margaret specifically created a route of travel for us. Upon our return, they were there to greet us and were truly interested in our excursion. There are not enough complimentary words to express our experience. We will absolutely recommend it to all of our friends and family for any reason - celebratory special occasion, quick visit to the area, or an opportunity for rest and relaxation. See their website for additional options of massages, hot air balloon rides, weddings, and many other special touches. We will most certainly return and can not wait to do so.

Outstanding Getaway

5 on January 31, 2014

My husband and I recently snuck away for just one night at the Chalet of Canandaigua. Our stay was everything I dreamed it would be: lovely accommodations, gorgeous scenery, decadent food, wonderful hospitality. We are already looking forward to booking a return stay.

Incredible Cozy Retreat!

5 on January 19, 2014

The Chalet of Canandaigua is our new favorite B&B; it simply doesn't compare to any other we have visited. Margaret and Pattie have done an amazing job creating a warm, friendly space that you just don't want to leave. Their attention to detail and leaving nothing overlooked was simply amazing; from the towel warmer in the bathroom to coasters just where you would need them, battery operated candles placed in just the right places, in-room amenities (mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker, hairdryer, iron and ironing board), games and movies for everyone's use in one of the sitting rooms, the wonderful evening desserts, blankets in the big cozy main room overlooking the deck, and Margaret and Pattie always keeping a warm fire going - it was all amazing. The three course breakfasts they made and served were exquisite and they were very accommodating to food allergy needs. Their friendliness and frequent conversations made it feel like they were old friends. We look forward to many return visits and are thrilled we found them!

Absolutely Wonderful

4.6 on January 08, 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights and it was absolutely perfect. The rooms and the Chalet itself is beyond beautiful! Margaret and Patti were great- the service was wonderful. They helped us plan things to do and had an endless supply of great ideas. They even made us reservations at a local restaurant for dinner one evening. I was sad to leave after such an amazing experience! Definitely worth it- and definitely going to go back for another stay! :)


5 on December 28, 2013

A great, comfortable, peaceful getaway with AMAZING food!

Best Bed and Breakfast ever

5 on December 26, 2013

We stayed for 3 nights recently at the Chalet, and it was truly an amazing experience. The warmth we felt instantly from Pattie and Margaret the moment we met them was fantastic. We stayed in the Woodsview room and it exceeded our wildest expectations. The 3 course breakfasts every morning were like heaven in our mouths, as were the nightly desserts that they ladies left out for us. The cozy intimate atmosphere was exactly what we needed for our romantic getaway, and both Margaret and Pattie were so helpful and accommodating. Can't wait to go back and check it out in the warmer weather!!

Good place for your soul

5 on November 20, 2013

The Chalet is a very special place. Beautiful and perfect in the true sense of each word. The innkeepers are extremely warm and welcoming. The Chalet is just a wonderful place to be. T McAuley

Wonderful retreat!

5 on November 16, 2013

Once you have stayed at Chalet of Canandaigua, you will always try and recapture that feeling of calm and relaxation when your life gets busy. We stayed there for one short night in October, and I can still recall the feeling of total relaxation, peace and quiet. Pattie and Margaret are wonderful hosts, offering ideas of things to do, a great meal and a wonderful, peaceful retreat. Although it is in a secluded spot, it is a very short drive into town where you can see and do lots of things. You can also walk around the beautiful grounds and bask in the serenity. My favourite thing to do was to sit on the deck in the evening, wrapped in a blanket (they also have patio heaters out there) and just enjoy being in the moment. Here's hoping we'll be back soon!


5 on November 05, 2013

Pattie and Margaret are wonderful! The chalet is beautiful and incredibly cozy. Clearly the best bed and breakfast in the State. I would recommend this location without hesitation.

Wonderful Stay

5 on October 30, 2013

Spent 2 nights here in October while on vacation to Finger Lakes. Simply put, it was outstanding! You feel like one of the family, and we could not have had any better experience. Especially liked the breakfasts. Highly recommend staying here.

Four friends

5 on October 20, 2013

We went to the Chalet with another couple and we all agreed that we highly recommend this b&b. not only are the bedrooms and baths clean and comfortable, but the living areas inside and large porch outside were inviting and comfortable to use to relax when not out enjoying the finger lakes area. Cannot imagine a nicer place to stay.

Balloon Ride

4.8 on October 14, 2013

It was truly an awesome anniversary at the Chalet. The food was great, room was fantastic and the balloon ride was truly amazing. We did not want the weekend to end. Pattie and Margaret were great host and we felt like we know them forever. We would recommend the Chalet and look forward to staying again in the future.

Exceptional Stay

4.8 on October 07, 2013

All the bases were covered by our hosts for our three night stay in the Finger Lakes. Our retreat provided great food, a beautiful suite with access to great sitting areas and hosts that catered to all whims including maps, recommendations and reservations. Our thanks to Patti and Margaret. We certainly hope to return.

Perfect Honeymoon Stay

5 on October 02, 2013

The two women who run this bed and breakfast are lovely. They immediately made us feel welcome and at home. We stayed here at the end of our wedding weekend. After saying goodbye to everyone all day Sunday it was great to draw a bath in the gorgeous and perfectly clean bathroom and unwind. These ladies thought of every detail. If your a foodie the 3 course breakfast on their huge sun porch is worth it all on its own.


5 on September 10, 2013

We went to the Chalet for our 5 year anniversary and it was wonderful! Margaret and Patti were wonderful hostesses and the facilities were beautiful. We felt like part of the family from beginning to end and we cannot wait to visit again!!!!!

Best B&B

5 on September 01, 2013

Our 2nd visit to the Chalet and we will be back. Beautiful setting, wonderful breakfast and late night dessert to end the evening. Plus innkeepers who pay attention to every detail and go out of their way to make sure you are enjoying your stay as well as experiencing the many attractions of the Finger Lakes.

Great Place !

5 on August 24, 2013

Absolutely loved it! Quiet, close to Canandaigua downtown and lakefront, plus great room, service, and a 3 course breakfast. Going back next year.

The Chalet review

5 on August 18, 2013

We celebrated our anniversary at the Chalet in early August and had a wonderful experience. Pattie and Margaret are great! They made us feel at home and made a delicious breakfast for us (furnished with a candle for our anniversary). The room was decorated beautifully and was spotless, the bed was comfortable and the soaking tub was very relaxing after a long week of work. We are planning on returning in the winter and we have recommended The Chalet to our friends!

A Perfect place in a perfect setting

5 on August 09, 2013

I would go back again and again

Wonderful Experience

5 on August 06, 2013

The place is beautiful and the girls go out of their way to make your stay perfect.

Marvelous B&B

4.6 on July 29, 2013

Clean rooms, romantic and relaxed atmosphere, wonderful location and outstanding breakfast. Highly recommended!

An Unforgettable Experience

5 on July 28, 2013

My wife and I went to the Chalet of Canandaigua for our honeymoon in July 2013 and had a wonderful experience. The owners and proprietors, Pattie and Margaret were eager to help in finding a restaurant for our first night and went through a basket full of menus for close to half an hour to ensure we had a great meal. The rooms were charming, well decorated with a woodland theme and very clean and comfortable. Each morning Pattie and Margaret would serve a three-course breakfast consisting of fruit dishes, crepes, pancakes, kabobs and omelets. No breakfast was the same as one before which made every morning a wonderful surprise. They were also very eager to help us find our way around the Fingerlakes to do what we most wanted. Overall it was an outstanding and unforgettable experience and we highly recommend the Chalet of Canandaigua to anyone wanting a beautiful, relaxing time away.

Anniversary Celebration

5 on July 26, 2013

Another anniversary at the Chalet - return visits are the best by far. Pattie and Margaret always make us feel at home. Can't rave enough of how great of a find this truly is. We plan on returning very soon.

This tranquil chalet has it all and more!

5 on July 26, 2013

This was one of our favorite bed and breakfasts. The log home is very cozy and beautifully decorated. The Lee Suite was quiet and comfortable, with a huge bathroom and soaking tub, complete with bubble bath and candles. Margaret and Pattie (the owners) are warm, genuine, and caring and do everything they can to ensure their guests' needs are met. The breakfasts are presented with artistic flair, using the freshest ingredients. This is the perfect spot to relax and rejuvenate, but there is also plenty to do in the area. We can't wait to go back since we had such a wonderful time there.

Weekend Get-Away

4.4 on July 16, 2013

Amazing get-away, Pattie and Margaret thought of all the details and comforts of home, from the stocked refrigerator to the magazines on the bedside table.

Definitely going back!

4.8 on July 03, 2013

We had received a good review for The Chalet from my Brother who stayed earlier in the year. But to experience this B & B ourselves was a true treat ... the innkeepers, Margaret & Patty were delightfully charming, friendly and accommodating .. and the food? Absolutely divine! I cannot say enough about the serenity, ambience and accommodations of The Chalet and we will definitely return soon! By the way, the soaking tub was a fabulous bonus!!!!

Amazing, highly recommend!!!

5 on June 27, 2013

We stayed here for our honeymoon based on reviews we read online, so we're here to confirm the Chalet and our hosts exceeded expectations!! Pattie and Margaret were great and unbelievably hospitable and helpful - we never found ourselves at a loss for places to go/see/eat, even though it downpoured for the duration of our stay. They had spot-on suggestions and gave us lots of pointers to really get the most from our time there. The food was incredible - words really can't even describe!! The reviews are all true! We stayed in the Balcony Suite and it was really luxurious and romantic. It was the perfect setting for our first week as husband and wife. We look forward to staying at the Chalet again!!

Wonderful Get Away!

5 on June 23, 2013

We stayed at the Chalet for a Thirtieth birthday. Margaret and Pattie were both very wonderful and accommodating to our every need and then some. Their Bed and Breakfast is breath takingly beautiful and comfortable. They left no detail overlooked. We will soon be reserving another stay soon.

Simply the Best

4.8 on May 30, 2013

We've stayed at the Chalet twice now and couldn't possibly rave about it enough. Not only is it the most professionally run bed and breakfast we've ever encountered, but Patti and Margaret have infused it with a sincerely warm and welcoming spirit. They have obviously poured their hearts into it. As for the "bed" part of it, this isn't your typical farmhouse B&B. It's a gorgeous log cabin tucked far away from the road in a secluded clearing. On top of that, Patti and Margaret have done a fantastic job of filling it with amazing amenities. Our room, the Woodsview, had a king bed, private bath with a deep soak tub and dual showerheads, complementary coffee and soda in the room, a working heating stove, and a dessert treat just before bed. But even after all that, it's the breakfast part that truly impresses. Everyday is a three course meal chock full of fresh fruit and herbs. We've never had breakfast this good anywhere - period. The creativity and attention to detail could put a five star restauranteur to shame. It's also worth mentioning that Patti and Margaret are very knowledgeable about the area and will happily help you fill your days after breakfast by directing you to the top restaurants and attractions nearby. Probably the most important thing though, is that you feel so welcome it practically feels, even for a first time visitor, like visiting old friends. Goodbyes are said with a hug and a "come see us again" that makes you wonder when, not if, you'll be back.

Awsome place to stay.....

5 on May 27, 2013

The Chalet was so amazing and relaxing. The ladies were so accommodating to your needs. The food is out of this world and if you go away hungry its your on fault. We plan to make it a yearly visit. Thanks again Pattie and Margaret....... :)

Cherished Chalet: Simply Outstanding

5 on May 24, 2013

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here. It was a lovely retreat. Pattie & Margaret are gracious hostesses. The chalet is beautiful from the rooms to the AMAZING porch. It's tucked into the woods and is so serene and quiet. The only sounds heard were the frogs on the pond at night and the geese around the pond in the day - beautiful, natural serenades!

Perfect and perfectly scrumptious

5 on May 02, 2013

This is the perfect getaway - so spacious, charming and the we couldn't have felt more welcomed. The creature comforts were outstanding and the food thoughtfully planned and very delicious! We hope to come back!

Everyone must experience !!!

5 on April 25, 2013

We had an awesome stay with Margaret and pattie..Beautiful lodge and very inviting! We are planning a return visit in May!!!!!

How do you describe perfection?

5 on April 17, 2013

Margaret and Pattie! The Chalet is absolutely gorgeous! A very romantic destination - outstanding accommodations, with attention to every detail, and no element overlooked. Patti and Margaret are fantastic hosts - you will feel at ease and relaxed. Dinner and breakfast outstanding!

A getaway that is second to none

5 on April 06, 2013

The Chalet is the most warm and inviting lodging experience I've had. The room, the house, the breakfast, and generous hosts are all marvelous. Can't wait to return.

Breakfasts and Courtesy in Spades!!!

4.8 on April 04, 2013

Pattiie and Maggie are exceptionally good hosts and run a spotless B&B that I like to call 'rustic elegance'. The Chalet is cozy and the warmth of wood is everywhere. Breakfast is ALWAYS surprising, delicious and unique. Having a cup of coffee out on the covered front porch is a great way to start the day. When you come 'home' after a night out, Pattie and Maggie have brownies there waiting for you.

A Perfect Getaway Spot

5 on April 02, 2013

We tried the Chalet for a much needed getaway weekend and it was above and beyond our expectations in every way. Easy to find and well located, spotlessly clean and beautiful. The ladies there anticipated every need and treated us like friends from the moment we stepped in the door. They helped us sort through our restaurant options and made the reservations for us, and the three course breakfasts in the morning were amazing! The room was beautiful and lush, and we thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay. We look forward to returning again soon!

Honeymoon Memories!

4.8 on March 25, 2013

We stayed at the Chalet from Thursday to Sunday in the balcony room. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel warm and welcomed. The food is terrific ( we even had dinner at the chalet one evening) and the breakfasts are exquisite. Our room was beautifully appointed and despie being able to hear most of the noises from the public areas (to be expected in a home) we thoroughly enjoyed it and think we got the best room in the house. Pattie and Margaret were very attentive and eager to help with any of our plans for the weekend. They even secured us a reservation at a lovely restaurant with a view of the lake. We will not hesitate to recommend the Chalet to our friends and will be back again!

Love this B & B!

4.8 on March 20, 2013

This was our second stay at the Chalet of Canandaigua and it was as close to perfect as any inn could be. Loved the overall log cabin ambiance of the inn, Lee Suite is a beautiful and comfortable room and the 3-course breakfast is second to none. Now that we have visited in winter we look forward to returning in a warmer season to enjoy breakfast on the deck.

Outstanding Bed and Breakfast

4.8 on March 19, 2013

The Chalet was wonderful, rooms were perfect, very spacious and romantic The food was excellent, they serve both breakfast daily and dinner upon request. The owners are personable and went above and beyond to make my stay great. They made dinner reservations for me at a great resturant with a lake view that Was breath taking. I look forward to another stay.

Amazing stay at Chalet

4.8 on March 03, 2013

The property and house were beautiful. Our hosts were extremely kind, generous and helpful. If you are looking for a relaxing and tranquil trip away this is the place for it.

Hidden Gem

4.8 on February 20, 2013

The Chalet is beautiful and cozy, inside and out. The three course breakfast was FANTASTIC. Margaret and Patti are great to their guests, and very helpful. This place was a perfect one night romantic getaway.

highly recommend the chalet

4.8 on February 08, 2013

we loved this place even in the dead of winter. The setting is spectacular and the hostesses were open and welcoming. Would love to go back for a summer visit. We loved the Canandaigua area.

We're Making This an Annual Trip...

5 on February 07, 2013

We had stayed at the Chalet in January 2012 for a night & loved it so much that I reserved a night as a Christmas gift for my husband. We enjoyed our stay in January 2013 just as much as the first time around! Pattie & Margaret are wonderful hosts, very friendly & welcoming. The breakfasts are superb...both years my husband & I had no need to eat until dinnertime. Dessert is left in the lobby for a midnight snack & both years has been decadently delicious. We stayed in the same room both times; it's warm & cozy & the bed is quite comfortable. We'll be back for another stay next January!


5 on January 30, 2013

This is THE place to go for a getaway. The owners were lovely, and made us feel welcomed and comfortable. The room was amazing, with a soaking tub and fireplace, and an incredibly comfortable bed. A three-course, homemade breakfast was included, and it was delicious. I can't wait to go back in the future, my boyfriend and I will surely make it a tradition.

Romantic B&B

5 on January 29, 2013

The furnishings and decor at the Chalet of Canandaigua were top notch. The welcoming atmosphere and attention to detail from owners Pattie and Margaret made our stay at this B&B completely satisfying. The Dining experience was also enjoyable and the dessert and breakfast were delicious. I would recommend The Chalet of Canandaigua to anyone!

Continues to impress

4.8 on January 26, 2013

We have stayed at the Chalet numerous times. The quality of service, Food and friendliness has been consistent. The personalities of Patty and Margaret add to to the delightful experience. We will will continue to visit the Chalet often!

A Gem and Peaceful Retreat

5 on January 19, 2013

The Chalet of Canandaigua is fabulous. Perched high on a hill, the grounds are well kept and private and the view is breathtaking. Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted by one of the hosts, Maggie, who made us feel most welcome. The property is gorgeous and the rooms are well appointed and supplied, including a wet bar with a stocked mini fridge, utensils, plates, mugs, glasses, napkins and Keurig coffee maker. Nothing was overlooked. The hosts are extremely knowledgeable about the area and are well supplied with maps, directions and brochures. The area is lovely and there are many places to explore. I view this as a multi-season location, so that no matter what time of year you visit there are plenty of activities to keep you busy. Wineries, antiques, shopping, dining, site seeing, water activities and hiking are all there or you could do nothing except curl up on the couch by the fire and read a book or magazine while the snow flies outdoors. Breakfast was always scrumptious and they worked hard to stay within my husband’s dietary restrictions. What a relaxing way to start the morning; with a cup of coffee or tea and breakfast by the window with an expansive view of the country side. Our trip was very enjoyable and we would highly recommend The Chalet of Canandaigua.

A place of warnth

4.8 on January 04, 2013

I showed up alone, due to a family emergency, and was immediately taken by the kindness of the Inn keepers. They made appetizers and sat with guests around the fireplace until each of us headed up to our sumptuous rooms. This place really feels like the home you always secretly wanted to have. Breakfast was probably the best I have had, after going to the best B&B's in the Finger Lakes each year for the last 10 years. Just a great experience and worth the extra money.

Romantic Get away

4.6 on December 24, 2012

This was a birthday gift and it was wonderful. The room was lovely and the Chalet is just beautiful. Pattie and Margaret were so friendly and caring and the food was wonderful. Only good things can be said. Hope to return soon.

Friendly and Attentive

4.4 on December 14, 2012

First time at a B&B and if this is what most of them are like, we will be staying at more in the future. Exceeded our expectations and would highly recommend to all.

Rustic Romance at its finest

4.6 on December 13, 2012

What a first class establishment! Rooms are large and private and we love the bistro-style dining room which offers the option to dine alone or with other guests..

Awesome! Already planning to go back again.

5 on December 12, 2012

You will not be disappointed. Super clean, awesome food &visited service. Attention to details, 5+ star, felt like we were in our dream resort home with someone taking care of our needs, wants and desires with freedom to enjoy everything /others every moment there. We already are planning our next stay there and want to go for years to come. You must stay at the Chalet.

Ideal getaway, wonderful hosts.

5 on November 27, 2012

This was the first B&B experience for my wife and I, and I'm not sure it can be topped! Your hosts, Pattie and Margaret, have all of your wants and needs covered. The property is beautiful, the lodge is very clean and the food is expertly prepared. You will truly enjoy your time at the Chalet, and we can't wait to return. -Phil

Relaxing Stay in the finger lakes

5 on November 08, 2012

We had a very relaxing stay at the Chalet. The food was wonderful and our hosts were extremely helpful in providing restaurant and sightseeing recommendations. Can't wait to go again!

Amazing escape

4.8 on October 28, 2012

A wonderful place to find peace, quiet, the beauty of nature and friendly owners . Owners are wonderful and attend to every detail. Inside is inviting, warm and comfortable. Stay in your room or enjoy common spaces, all are amazing. Outside is beautiful. Love, love, love the porch. The entire place inside and out, just embraces and encourages you to leave the rest of the world behind. Can't wait to go back.

stay at the chalet

5 on October 17, 2012

Everything was perfect! From the minute we walked in the door we were thrilled we found this place. First there was a cancellation so they gave us the nicest room for no extra charge althnough all the rooms are beatiful. It was quiet, peaceful, relaxing. Next time we're staying for more than 1 night. Food was excellent too. Loved it!

Exceptional...great place to stay

5 on October 01, 2012

We had a wonderful experience at the Chalet and would stay there again. It was a beautiful log cabin and we stayed in the Lee Suite which was a very large suite. The chalet had a lot of nice added details in the decor and the 4 course breakfast was excellent. The owners were extremely friendly and very accomodating.

5th Wedding Anniversary

4.6 on September 29, 2012

We picked this place based on all the positive reviews on trip advisor. We stayed in the Lee Suite. The pictures on the website are an accurate representation of the actual b&b. It is as nice as it looks. Our hosts, Margaret and Patty, were fantastic. They made us feel welcome in their home and provided us with everything we needed to make our weekend special. Thank you both. We look forward to visiting again in the future.

Spectacular B&B!

5 on September 28, 2012

We spent a few days of our Honeymoon at The Chalet of Candandaigua and did not want to leave! The Balcony room was beautifully decorated, the king size bed comfortable and the large private bathroom amazing! Margaret & Patty helped us with dinner reservations, massage appointments as well as suggestions for sight seeing/fun things to do around the area. The 3 course breakfasts were heaven sent with their originality and exquisite tastes...Mmmm!! We enjoyed early morning walks around the beautifully kept grounds, relaxed on the large outdoor patio and enjoyed delicious nightly desserts in front of the large stone fireplace. The Chalet is a very special place to find beauty, relaxation and personable people; we can not wait to return and celebrate anniversaries! Thank you Patty & Margaret for a warm and amazing stay!

charming setting, welcoming hosts

5 on September 13, 2012

fabulous breakfasts, welcoming host, clean, beautiful setting, could not ask for more. highly recommended.

Perfectly Run, Perfectly Located, Perfect Stay

4.6 on September 10, 2012

We chose the Chalet for a 4 night getaway to celebrate both our 25th wedding anniversary and becoming empty nesters. At least every 30 minutes we discovered another perfectionist detail we had lamented as missing in another B&B, Inn or Hotel: power strips provided next to the bed, sufficient hooks and towel bars in the most luxurious bathrooms ever designed, plentiful large towels, double sinks and bubble bath for the enormous tub. Dimmer switches and flameless candles. BEST BREAKFASTS WE HAVE EVER BEEN SERVED, AND DIFFERENT FOR FOUR DAYS. Desert waiting for us every evening, and detailed info about restaurants and local sites. Comfortable king size beds. THESE HOSTS KNOW WHAT THEY NEED TO DO TO RUN A TOP NOTCH GUEST ORIENTED INN. We had only one concern -- we felt that the level of privacy vis-a-vis sound traveling was not 100% due to architectural design. Lee Suite is most private, Balcony Suite (we changed rooms for last nite) perhaps least private. On the other hand, Inn has only 3 suites and likely no one actually hears, it is more a "sense" of privacy, and we may be more sensitive. Owners private area is far from guest suites, and each guest suite is separated, so after bedtime all is private enough.

This is gorgeous b&b with great service, delicious good and beautiful rooms.

A Beautiful Night Away

4.4 on August 19, 2012

The Chalet of Canandaigua is warm and welcoming. Highly recommend!

Best Anniversary EVER!

5 on August 16, 2012

Pattie and Margaret are fabulous hosts and couldn't have been more gracious. The setting is convenient and beautiful. Loved the entire experience.

Heaven on Earth!

5 on August 15, 2012

Perfect from start to finish...from the peaceful location to the superb service from Maggie and Pattie to the delicious breakfasts (and evening desserts) to the high end ammenities in our balcony suite! The B & B is so nice, next time we go back we want to spend more time there...enjoying the deck, the company and the grounds.

courteous, affable hosts who do all to accommodate individual requests. breakfasts are outstanding.

Relax Sit Back and Unwind

5 on July 28, 2012

My husband and I decided to go to the Chalet for our first night away after having our first child. What a wonderful choice we made. It was perfect-every touch was thought about. The hospitality and accommodations were top notch. We spent time relaxing on the porch in the rocking chairs and enjoyed the sitting rooms. We stayed in the Woodsview room and it was splendid. Breakfast on the porch was perfect. We were delighted to find dessert waiting for us when we returned from dinner. We will definitely stay there again.

Our new home in Canandaigua

5 on July 23, 2012

My girl and I recently spent a night while in town for Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds Concert at the Pavilion. We have always struggled with hotels in Canandaigua so we thought we would look for an upscale B&B type of arrangement, even though we are not B&B people. What a great decision. The lovely room was extraordinarily clean and comfortable. The keepers are a great team of Maggie & Patty who do a great job. The downside is that they are small and in demand. Book soon and book early. We would have liked to have stayed Saturday and Sunday nights (the concert was on Sunday night), but they were booked. That is what comes with hard work, creativity. Success! Awesome breakfast, by the way. Going back for sure.

Another Fantastic Visit

5 on July 17, 2012

Pattie and Margaret are the greatest!! Their breakfasts are incredible and the chalet is so cool!! We have stayed there 2 years in a row and will definitely be back next summer, and we drive 6 1/2 hours to get there. The ladies even booked a limo for us and a couple of friends to take the wine tour around the Finger Lakes. Any suggestion they make has been dead on with the listen to them!! Overall just a fabulous stay!! Book a night or two, you will not be disappointed!

My husband and I celebrated my 40th birthday with a quiet stay at the Chalet

5 on July 13, 2012

Shelley and Bill

We've been back a number of times

5 on July 11, 2012

We love the Chalet and expect to be staying there many times in the future. Our favorite B&B anywhere, ever.

Painton Visit

5 on June 25, 2012

The fact that the Chalet was off the beaten path was refreshing! The overall experience was a comfortable "retreat" and pampered at every turn! The property was a beautiful sight and the grounds inviting for a walk or sit. I truly appreciated the Chalet's elegance yet rustic interior with all the amenities. After staying in several B&Bs over past years, I find this one hard to beat! Great job and look forward to a visit in the future!

Great place

5 on June 25, 2012

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners were very attentive and paid great attention to detail. You might find a B and B that cost a little less but, you will not find a better one. The food was not your typical fare and was always surprising and very tasty. I loved this place.

An Oasis in the Fingerlakes

4.2 on June 19, 2012

Beautiful surroundings- the grounds are especially lovely. The innkeepers are personable and go out of their way to please their guests. My wife and I were very impressed that the Chalet was able to meet our dietary needs. It was wonderful to be able to have a gluten free breakfast with all organic produce! The gluten free brownies were a nice touch as well.

Two nights at the Chalet

4.8 on June 08, 2012

While committing online to a stay at a premium B&B sight unseen can be risky, we weren't at all disappointed. Margaret and Patty pay attention to virtually every detail. The house is unique, the accommodations superior, the gourmet breakfasts original. Our only regret is not carving out enough time during our visit to simply relax and enjoy the comfortable surroundings. We would not hesitate to do this all over again.

Best B&B ever

5 on May 30, 2012

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful spot near Canandaigua, NY. Would come back anytime.


5 on May 30, 2012

What a wonderful get away. A charming B&B with wonderful hostesses and exceptional food. Sandy and Vicki

Weekend Get Away

5 on May 27, 2012

The inn made for a perfect relaxing weekend. Pattie and Margaret were wonderful hosts. The breakfasts were delicious. I would recommend this bed and breakfast to others.

The Perfect Spot

5 on May 27, 2012

The Chalet was even better than their pictures. The bed and breakfast was simply beautiful and the grounds/views were breathtaking. The owners greeted us when we checked in, gave us a personal tour, and answered any questions we had. When we came back that evening after seeing our show in downtown Rochester, we were greeted with the most magnificent dessert outside of our room. Dessert at midnight! How could you go wrong? The B&B was incredibly quiet all night long and we slept wonderfully. Our morning started with a three course breakfast on the porch, overlooking the pond. Upon leaving and saying goodbye to the owners, we felt as though we made really great friends. I wish we had stayed longer. If you ever want to take a vacation in the finger lakes, The Chalet of Canandaigua is the only place to stay.

Amazing B&B

4.6 on May 10, 2012

This was our second stay with Patti and Maggie and it was amazing! They have a beautiful property which is very quiet and secluded. They both enjoy your company, but also value your privacy! The breakfast was five star and we will stay there again and again!!

First Time at a Bed and Breakfast

5 on May 06, 2012

The Chalet is a beautiful remote location. It was just the spot we needed to get away and relax for the weekend. Lots of things to do nearby and the owners are very knowledgeable of the area. We would highly recommend this location. Very accommodating if you have diet restrictions as well.


5 on April 28, 2012

After multiple deployments(one just ended),raising the kids,and everyday stressors we needed to find the PERFECT place to get away & the Chalet was it(we stayed on 4/22)! I spent many hours looking for a place that had what we were looking for & terrific reviews.After much searching we found the Chalet.Our stay was better then we could of imagined.Pattie& Margaret were more then welcoming from the moment we got out of our vehicle& throughout the whole stay.They both really know how to make you feel at home from the delicious dessert after dinner,the super soft sheets ,the great conversations,etc.The place is BEAUTIFUL inside& out.The food was incredible&they so kindly catered to me being a vegetarian.Thank you Pattie& Margaret for making our stay a memorable one.P.S The ONLY complaint we could have is that we only stayed for one night!Can't wait to come back...Damien& Tina S.

Wonderful Stay

4.2 on March 04, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Chalet of Canandaigua for a quick weekend trip- we had a FABULOUS time!! The room was extremely comfortable and the Chalet was beautiful. We really enjoyed the pumpkin pie that was served in the evening and breakfast was fantastic!! We definitely recommend staying here and hope to return for a future stay ourselves :-)

Great place to get away

5 on February 27, 2012

My wife and I spent 3 nights at the Chalet. It was very relaxing and the breakfast each morning was outstanding. They also have a evening snack as well. Thanks Pattie and Margaret ..... It was awesome. You won't be disappointed!!!

Wonderful relaxing experience!

5 on February 24, 2012

Pattie and Maggie welcomed us into there home like we were one of there family. The service was top notch and the food was amazing. Was the most relaxing and unstressful weekend my wife and I have ever had.

A massage for the soul!

5 on January 16, 2012

Fantastic! If you want some where to recharge your soul then you should visit here. You will not be disappointed!!

Anniversary Experience

5 on January 04, 2012

We are regular B&B travelers and the Chalet is among the very best if not the best. The well appointed common areas, the spacious quest rooms and the expansive bathroom would be enough, but add the friendly and sociable environment generated by our hosts and the superb breakfast menu spoils you to where staying is much more appealing than continuing your travels. A and S

Best B&B I have ever stayed at.

5 on January 04, 2012

The hosts were incredible, and their attention to details was the best I've seen. We will be back for our anniversary.

Best kept secret in Canandaigua

4.4 on December 20, 2011

We stayed two nights at the Chalet and were delighted by the hospitality of our hosts, the warmth and beauty of the delightful log cabin home, and awed by the fabulous 3 course breakfast plus nightly dessert. It is definitely a place to which I will return not only for the great accommodations but also for the wonderful company.

The best B&B

5 on December 04, 2011

Words cannot describe this "5 star" B&B. The beautiful rooms and Great Room with fireplace, make you want to melt into the chairs and get lost in this beautiful country nest. Patti and Margaret are wonderful hosts and make you feel like you're staying with your favorite family. The decorations around the holidays will take your breath away. A great getaway with great hosts, in a great location, with great rooms.......overall, just..........great

Best B&B out there!

5 on December 01, 2011

This was our second stay at the Chalet. The surroundings, log home, the decor are all incredible, but it is the Inn Keepers, Margaret and Patti that make the Chalet truly the best B&B ever. They are inviting, warm, welcoming, personable, extremely helpful with what to do in the area and they make the most amazing 3 course breakfast each day! I just wish the Chalet wasn't 6 hours away from my home! We will be sure to return.

Great B&B!

4.8 on November 21, 2011

Stayed in the balcony room and it was beautiful. The food was great and we had an amazing time. I would recommend Chalet to anyone looking for a relaxing get away.

Perfect wine country retreat

4.8 on November 13, 2011

This B&B is the perfect retreat in the heart of finger lakes wine country. The place is immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. The suites are spacious with private bathrooms and the sheets, towels and robes are luxuriant. The owners, Pattie and Margaret made us feel so at home and comfortable. They thought of every detail and helped with our dinner reservations and planning what to do during the day. The breakfast they served was amazing, and they took into account our food allergies. Dessert was great too. We will be back for sure. It was our 25th wedding anniversary and they made it special, but we won't wait another 25 years to go back.


5 on October 24, 2011

We had a wonderful time during our stay at the Chalet of Canandaigua and would recommend this B&B to anyone. We had a fabulous stay.

Simply THE Best!

5 on October 20, 2011

I've probably stayed in close to 50 B&Bs in my lifetime and without a doubt, this was one of, if not THE, best experiences I've ever had! From the moment you head up the long driveway through the trees and past the beautiful pond, you just know it's going to be an amazing stay. The house is simply gorgeous. It's cozy, warm, rustic and luxurious. Upon arrival, we immediately sat outside on the pretty porch and later moved inside to enjoy the beautiful sitting area by the fireplace. We marveled at the decorations and attention to detail. Our stay in the Balcony suite and was just lovely. The bed was super comfy and the fireplace was a special treat! The bathroom was spectacular and "taking a tub" is a definite must! Both Patti and Margaret are incredibly warm and welcoming. You could not ask for better hostesses! They were more than happy to spend time chatting with us and recommending local places for dinner. Speaking of food, the three course breakfast was incredible! It was obvious that a lot of thought and care went into the planning and preparation of the scrumptious meal. They even told us that they never serve the same meal twice to their customers! Amazing. Overall, it was outstanding and we can not wait to visit again!!

Amazing, relaxing getaway!

We stayed at The Chalet, October, 2011 and it was wonderful. As soon as you pull up the drive way you feel relaxed. Then when Pattie and Margaret open the door to welcome you in, you feel at home. Everything you see in pictures is the same, except even prettier. The cozy fireplace, the awesome night time dessert, the rooms, the super 3 course breakfast! We stayed in the Balcony Suite, and it was truly beautiful (as are all the rooms) can't go wrong by staying here....we can't wait to go back!!

Even Prettier than the picture!!

We spent one night here but wish we had spent the entire weekend!! The house was warm and clean, Margaret and Pattie were friendly, food was awesome, evening treat, which was a homemade pie, again AWESOME!! Very quiet also, will stay again but longer.

Well worth the visit

4.6 on September 06, 2011

While visiting the area, I wanted to experience a bed and breakfast that was NOT Victorian-themed. I wanted a place that reminded me of home and not some stuffy old place. This was one of the few I found in the Finger Lakes region that met my requirements. Thanks Pattie and Margaret for a wonderful time and providing a beautiful place to stay that was fresh, clean, modern, and well thought out for travelers. The meal was great too!!!. Keep up the great work. JB and JB

wonderful visit

4.6 on August 13, 2011

we were very pleased with the very personal attention we received from the moment we walked in the door. Margaret and Pattie were exceedingly helpful in designing our visits and dining options and every request we had. We loved the care in decorating the log cabin and the very modern bathroom of the Balcony suite. If we are back in the Finger Lakes area again we will definitely stop at the Chalet again.

Weekend getaway

The inn keepers were very polite, informational, gave guidelines thoroughly for around the town. Loved the location and the way the Chalet was tucked up in the hills...Very much enjoyed the stay.

My favorite place EVER!

5 on August 03, 2011

Patti and Margaret have not missed a single detail in this wonderful bed and breakfast! The rooms are decorated with lots of love and care and the breakfast courses are 5 star! You will be totally amazed by everything at The Chalet. My husband and I were married there about a year and a half ago and it was the most beautiful day (even in a snowstorm:)) It was more than I ever could have dreamed of. We like to go a few times a year and wish they would just let us live there. Its pure heaven!!!!

nice quiet getaway

5 on July 31, 2011

we went to the chalet to getaway for a few days, it was a beautiful 2 days with an outstanding breakfast both days. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, also Pattie and Margaret are very helpful to guide you to restaurants and attractions in the area. Thanks again for a nice, relaxing vacation.

The stay at Chalet Canandaigua was a very pleasant experience, with outstanding clean rooms, friendly innkeepers, and above outstanding breakfast. A must visit for a relaxing time.

Amazing Place To Stay...

5 on July 15, 2011

My wife and I stayed at the Chalet of Canandaigua to celebrate our 6yr Wedding Anniversary and I can't wait to go back. They were absolutely amazing and I couldn't have asked for more. They catered to our every need. The home, grounds, rooms were beautiful. We were only able to stay for 2 nights but I would love to move in... I can't thank them enough for our time there. Look forward to going back soon.

Excellent as always

4.8 on June 30, 2011

I have stayed at the Chalet many times and will continue to do so at any opportunity I get. It is relaxing and the hostess's are just super pleasant, nice and accommodating. Barbara Starr

Thanks so much for a great stay.

4.6 on June 19, 2011

Everything was wonderful. The hosts were fabulous and welcoming. We will definitely come back. (Breakfast had a lot of stuff going on ; ). Totally appreciate the effort that went into it. Just have different tastes is all. Thanks Barb

A Home Away From Home...With Gourmet Food!

4.8 on June 16, 2011

This is by far the best bed and breakfast that I have ever had the opportunity to visit. Every little detail of the experience is thought out carefully by Pattie and Margaret...the supreme hostesses of the Chalet of Canandaigua. The 3 course breakfasts were exquisite (and an extra special touch is dessert at night!). Their insight into the area is expansive...we did not have any plans going into our vacation and they assisted us with the perfect suggestions. The rooms are rustic and charming...perfect for him and her. Large bathtubs, beds, and fireplaces allow you to really sink into a feeling of total relaxation. From the blankets they lay out on the rocking chairs in case it gets chilly, to the large selection of board games they have, should you choose to spend an evening in (which you should! there's no reason to leave this haven!) is a perfect place to stay. Not to mention the wonderful company and witty conversation Pattie and Margaret add to your stay...we will absolutely be coming back to try it during all seasons!

Complete Bliss

5 on June 06, 2011

We had a wonderful time there and loved everything about the Chalet. Margaret and Patty are exceptional host. They accommodated our dietary needs and made a fantastic breakfast for us. Perfect place to just lounge. We would definitely recommend it to friends.

A Perfect Chalet Weekend

4.8 on June 01, 2011

We stay at B&Bs as often as possible and this has made our top of the list! Maggie and Pattie have a beautiful log A frame. Neither of us can find anything to improve upon. Our hosts were on top of everything, things to do, where to eat, googling maps, you name it they accomodated. They both excel at customer service. They are also both excellent cooks, the breakfasts and desserts in the evening were to die for. The rooms are all very spacious; and well appointed, there is nothing they didn't think of including heated towel racks! We are already booked to come back and bringing friends.

Already planning our next visit to the Chalet!

4.6 on May 25, 2011

My husband and I chose to spend our first anniversary at the Chalet of Canandaigua, and we were thrilled with our decision. The grounds and accommodations are gorgeous. (I think my jaw hit the floor when I saw their kitchen!) Also the bedding in the Woodsview suite is so luxurious, we had to drag ourselves out of bed. Also motivating us to get up? The indescribable three course breakfasts that Pattie and Margaret prepare. The food was not only delicious, but presented in a way that made our mornings feel so special. My "meat and potatoes" hubby even enjoyed it! Pattie and Margaret answered all of our questions about the area, and made right-on recommendations for dining and wineries. While we were at dinner our first night, they lit the fireplace for us, so we could enjoy a glass of champagne and a delectable dessert by candlelight. We felt as if we were staying with our two most thoughtful friends. As we prepared to leave on Sunday, Pattie and Margaret gave us the rose that had been on our breakfast table to take home. We hugged them goodbye, headed to the car, and immediately starting planning our next trip to the Chalet!

Great Place for a Getaway

5 on May 11, 2011

our room was gorgeous with a great view of the woods. It was a very relaxing stay. The best part was the 3 course breakfast in the morning. It was amazing. We very much enjoyed breakfast on the porch with a great view of the pond. Would definitely go back again and again. It was wonderful.

incredible stay, worth every penny!

5 on May 11, 2011

I have stayed at the Chalet many times (one of them was my wedding night!), and this time was with my mom for Mother's Day. Our trips to the Chalet are always incredible. The rooms are gorgeous. Handmade soaps and shampoos from a local vendor, beautiful robes, an automatic fireplace, the most comfortable bedding, a Keurig machine and mini-fridge with water, soda, and other treats are all included with the cost of the room. There's also a HUGE soaking tub! Patti and Maggie are incredible hosts. When they found out my mom and I were having dinner with my brother and his fiance, they invited all of us back for dessert at the Chalet. They had a roaring fire waiting for us and an amazing fruit tart. They care for every detail, and will go above and beyond to make your experience memorable. Breakfast is incredible. Three courses of gourmet food! Our first course was a cinnamon crostini with mascarpone cream and fresh fruit. Second course was a braised tomato slice topped with scrambled eggs, parmesan cheese, and balsamic vinegar. Third course was a german apple pancake topped with mascarpone cream, maple glazed sausage, and caramelized onions. Fresh coffee, tea, and juice are available, and they set the table with fresh roses and candles. The weather was gorgeous, so we ate outside on their beautiful porch! I love that you pay the price for the room and everything is included. You don't have to worry about extra costs racking up, which is why I say it's worth every penny. They have beautiful grounds, and the place is so secluded, it makes you feel like you're getting away. Downtown Canandaigua is only a few minutes down the road though, where they will suggest places to visit and make you reservations for dinner. They can also cook you dinner if you like! I've stayed here 4 times now, and I have to say it's become my husband and my "place." We love it, and I know you will too!

Great couple's getaway

4.0 on May 04, 2011

The Chalet of Canandaigua was a great find. I was looking for a b&b that both my wife and I could enjoy while celebrating her 40th birthday, and the Chalet fit the bill perfectly. Rustic yet refined, the Chalet had it all. No textured wallpaper to be found, the natural log walls provided a warm, relaxing atmosphere which was appointed with fine furnishings and spacious, inviting rooms. Our suite (Lee) was wonderful, and the owners, Patty and Margaret, made our stay an excellent one from start to finish. Nestled in the quiet woods yet near Canandaigua and the Finger Lakes wineries, it was a wonderful weekend getaway. The price was reasonable, the service and accommodations excellent, and getting to hear "best birthday ever!" was icing on the cake! Do yourself a favor and check out the Chalet. If you do, I have no doubt you will check in!

In a word WOW!!!

4.6 on April 20, 2011

A perfect get away. Everything from the room, to the meals, to the personal attention, was outstanding. Our only complaint was that we had to leave.


5 on April 14, 2011

This was our second trip to the Chalet...3 nights of pure relaxation! You can't beat the breakfasts...Patti and Margaret outdo themselves every morning. If you can, stay for's even better than breakfast! They really put everything they have into making you feel comfortable, relaxed, and at home, without making it look exhausting. We can't say enough good things about such a wonderful place.


5 on April 13, 2011

Beautiful rooms with great attention to detail. Breakfast was amazing and the innkeepers are wonderful hosts.

Chalet just Wonderful!

5 on April 06, 2011

Patti & Margaret were wonderful hosts. They made you feel at home, not like guests. We've already booked another weekend. It was wonderful. Top Notch Everything. We would recommend this beautiful place to everyone. Thanks, Nicole & Gil


5 on March 21, 2011

The stay was incredible. The owners went above and beyond what anyone would expect. They made are dinner reservations and when we cancelled and decided to stay and order in they brought ice drinks, plates, etc. They kept the fire roaring. My wife and I cant wait to go back. It was incredible

Chalet of Canandaigua Outstanding

5 on March 10, 2011

I found out about this wonderful B & B from a friend that had recently stayed there. I wanted something special to surprise my husband for our 11th Wedding Anniversary. The place is absoultely beautiful and Patti and Margaret are such wonderful hosts. We instantly felt right at how with both of them. The know the area and are great about suggesting restaurants, points of interest and just about anything you want they can help you get it. They prepared an oustanding three course breakfast for us and it was very delicious and the presentation was something you would see in a five start restaurant. We definately will be returning and next time we plan on having one of there gourmet dinners. Check out their website and see all they have to offer. You will not be disappointed with your stay. It was one of the best night sleeps I have had in a very long time.

Can't Imagine A Better Experience!

5 on February 26, 2011

We just got back home after 2 days at this terrific place. We couldn't have been more pleased, it was truly an amazing experience. We stayed in the Balcony room which was so beautiful and cozy, we just felt completely at home the instant we arrived. Patti and Margaret made every minute of our stay perfect, between their attention to detail, making sure anything we needed or wanted was right there to going out of their way to accommodate our special dietary needs. We had 2 breakfast meals there and one dinner and I will be singing their praises to everyone that will listen. Every course they brought out was even prettier than the last and we have never tasted anything that incredible before in any B&B or restaurant. We are already planning a return for summer, can't wait to be able to stroll around the grounds and eat on the large porch. Our visit will be remembered for a long time!!!

A GREAT Experience

5 on February 23, 2011

This was our third time at the Chalet and we can't wait to go back. They are so welcoming and make you feel like your at home. The Chalet is always very clean and the food is great. It is a place for romance, the large fireplace is our favorite place to sit in the evening with a glass of wine.

What a great place!

3.8 on January 26, 2011

A wonderful first BnB experience! This place was perfect for a weekend getaway.

"A five star experience....hands down!"

5 on January 14, 2011

We had been researching places to stay in the area of Canandaigua, where we had been planning a ski trip to Bristol Mountain. The website for the Chalet of Canandaigua was very enticing and appealed to what we wanted for our weekend getaway. Upon arriving we were greeted by the incredibly friendly owners of the B&B, who gave us a tour of the beautiful log building. The decor and ambiance were very warm and cozy and had a five star appeal. Our suite was incredible -- king size bed, kitchenette and fireplace (our favorite) were all intact. The bathroom was also amazing, with a huge tub that was perfect for a long soak after a day of skiing. After dinner on the town, we were greeted by desserts waiting for us upon arriving back at the Chalet. Delicious! The ladies were very accommodating to me personally - I have a lot of dietary restrictions and they were able to provide me with scrumptious alternatives to what my boyfriend had. The three course breakfast was equally impressive. We especially liked the bananas foster on waffles. Overall, the Chalet was an incredible experience. It was only a 20-25 minute drive from Bristol Mountain and the perfect getaway if you are looking to get out of the city and enjoy the peace and serenity of the countryside. The owners create a very welcoming atmosphere and are obviously committed to appeasing guests` needs. We will be recommending the Chalet to all of our family and friends and hope to return! meg-mcdonald Toronto Cananda January 9, 2011

There was a wedding at the Chalet the day before our arrival. As a result when we arrived at 2pm the kitchen was a mess! They didn't seem prepared for us at all. Clutter and furniture all over the place. The innkeepers' family was also visiting that weekend but apparently they normally stay in the lower part of the house. They decided, instead, to have their family gatherings in the main areas of the house, living rooms, dining room and kitchen. The kitchen was right outside of our room and the entire time all we heard was loud laughing and conversation. This was very akward because we were the only guests in the house and felt like we paid $285 only to be intruders in someone else's family gathering. It seems as though normally the innkeepers put way more effort into their guests, and at such a high price for a room we were bummed with the service for sure. If they did not plan on serving guests that weekend perhaps they should have not been open.

Innkeeper Response
Saddened to hear that your stay was not a stellar one. When you reserved on the 20th requesting an 11 am early check in we apologized in advance that we could not accommodate your request as our normal check in is between 3-6 pm and our normal checkout is Noon and that we had a wedding event the day before (the 26th) leaving little room to accommodate an early arrival. Given the holiday time frame and the possibility of inconvenience we offered and gave a discounted price. Unfortunately, when a guest arrives earlier than expected there is a possibility that things may not be totally ready and as innkeepers there is a feeling of disappointed when we can not fully provide the experience our guest is looking for. Our home, is your home, during your stay and anything less then a outstanding experience saddens us. As it is our home, and the holiday’s, having our out of town children visit at the same time as having guests can provide a challenge, however as innkeepers our first priority is the well-being and comfort of our guests, which we tend to be more conscious of in a situation like this. We do apologize if our small family gathering intruded on your stay and we are “bummed” as well that your stay was less than excellent.

The Masons

4.4 on December 31, 2010

We have experienced 16 nights,( 4 New Years, 4 biirthdays, 2 anniversaries, and a few just relax with friends ). The first time we drove up the laneway we knew it would be nice .Little did we know how great and relaxing it would be. The ladies met us at the front door and welcomed us in and never let us down . The home is beautiful ,warm and always has a smell of friendship and love. The rooms are decorated right from the Pottery Barn and Linen and things. Over sized beds, well desigend room and even the bathroom leaves nothing to the imagination. Fireplace , Tv, and even an area to sit and chill out. The Great/dining room is warm and cosy , used for group or separate dining in the morning with an always exquisite breakfast. We love the conversation with the ladies and then relaxing on the large deck off the dining room. We feel at home when we arrive and we miss the Chalet when we leave. It is most definitely worth the drive from Toronto to be here and enjoy the many things to do in the surrounding area. We have already planned our next 2 visits and many more to come. Patti and Margaret are truly what Innkeepers are all about. You won't regret coming here, i promise.

Feels like home

My fiance and I love the Chalet. It is a beautiful cabin with all of the comforts of home, and then some. Pattie and Margaret are wonderful hostesses. They had snacks waiting for us when we arrived and delicious pie for dessert when we returned from dinner. Breakfast was nothing short of divine. Every course was perfectly flavorful. I especially loved Maggie's Mix! Overall, it is offers a relaxing getaway in a beautiful setting, with the great ladies. We will certainly be returning. James & Melissa, NJ

Return visit was just as great as the first1

Like home only better!

5 on October 06, 2010

We stayed at the Chalet for our 25th wedding anniversary and we could not have been happier with our choice. The log cabin styled B&B is absolutely gorgeous! The room was perfect with every detail taken care of. When we arrived, our hosts Pattie and Margaret greated us and gave us a tour. They asked about our plans for the weekend and then made some dinner suggestions showing us menu's of local restaurants they liked. They even called and made reservations for us! Both restaurants we ate at were fabulous! Every night when you return to the Chalet, a homemade dessert is waiting for you! In your room is a refrigerator, filled with soft drinks, juice and water. The inroom small "kitchen" station also boasts a keurig coffee machine, coffee, tea, candy, wine/ice bucket, glasses, corkscrew, plates and silverware. The kingsize bed was so comfortable with plenty of pillows. The bathroom was spacious and included a towel warmer, double sinks, double shower (rain showerhead on one side and regular shower head on the other) and extra toiletries in case you forgot something. In the morning a three course breakfast is served in a dinning room that overlooks a covered deck and a pond beyond that. The meal was fantastic! But the best part of the whole weekend was enjoying our hostesses company. They were fun to talk to and knew a great deal about the area and were able to give us tips for our daily outings. The atmosphere at the Chalet is relaxed elegance, but we truly enjoyed our stay because of Pattie and Margaret and will definitely visit again!!!!!

Another Birthday Surprise

4.6 on September 13, 2010

This was our second trip to the Chalet, and as usual Patti and Margaret were outstanding! The ambiance is amazing, the rooms are amazing, and the food is just out of this world! We have changed from our once a year stay to planning a trip to the Chalet at LEAST twice a year!

Romantic, relaxing - everything we could have hoped for!

4.6 on August 24, 2010

For our first anniversary, my husband and I decided to look into bed and breakfasts in the Finger Lakes. We like the region and wanted to explore the wineries. We chose the Chalet of Canandaigua as the place to celebrate. When we arrived, we were warmly greeted by Margaret. She explained how things worked, told us about attractions in the area, and even provided menus of local restaurants. Something that really impressed me is that Margaret and Pattie frequently go the restaurants to make sure they are still worth recommending. Margaret even offered to make our dinner reservations for us! When you go to a bed and breakfast, breakfast is, of course, expected. However, the breakfasts at the Chalet were far beyond anything I would have anticipated! They serve three courses each morning. Three full courses of delicious and creatively presented food! We liked that breakfast time was flexible - you could eat anywhere between 8:00 and 9:30. Because the weather was nice, we were able to dine on the large, sunny porch both mornings. We stayed in the Lee Suite, and it was fantastic! The suite was spacious, with a large, comfortable sleigh bed. There were leather chairs where we spent a lot of time reading. The chairs flanked a gas fireplace. The bathroom was gigantic and featured a large soaking tub - very relaxing! The suite also had a number of other nice features, like a mini-fridge, a coffee maker, wine glasses and a corkscrew, and many more. There were many welcoming places throughout the Chalet to sit and enjoy reading, playing board games, or chatting. They have a large DVD collection as well. Throughout our time at the Chalet, Margaret and Pattie went the extra mile to make sure our stay was pleasant. We were looking for someplace romantic and relaxing to spend our first anniversary, and we found it at the Chalet! We would highly recommend it to anyone.

A visit to the Finger Lakes

4.8 on August 22, 2010

Couldn't ask for anything more for our stay at the Chalet of Canandaigua. We were greeted warmly and the genuine care we were given through our stay made this a memorable experience! I would highly recommend a stay here without hesitation!

Wonderful Experience

5 on August 05, 2010

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and wanted to go somewhere quiet and special, fairly close to home. What a wonderful experience we had!! Patti and Margaret are exceptional at what they do and they love pleasing their guests. From the beautiful rooms, exceptional food and great attention to detail, including helping us with dinner reservations and wine tours, these ladies are great and the Chalet is soooooo relaxing. We did not want to leave. We were made to feel like with that said, we will be back sometime in the Fall. We would recommend the Chalet to anyone. Thanks again ladies...see you soon!! Chris and Deanna Bancroft

An Amazing Weekend!

5 on June 29, 2010

Sigh...we are back in the real world after our amazing weekend at The Chalet. All four of us (Brenda, Phil, Rich & Jeanne) feel that it was the nicest weekend we have had in a very long time. Everything at The Chalet was just prefect: the atmosphere, food and service. We really can't think of a thing we would change. You have our highest compliment, we will be back and can't wait. Rich and Jeanne

the getaway that's a must

5 on May 09, 2010

my husband and I stayed here on three different occassions and we would go back again. the rooms(all 3) are great,the area is beautiful,the innkeepers are wonderful, and the food is out of this world. I would reccomend this b&b to anyone. everything is fantastic. Marcia&dave

Highly Recommended

4.8 on February 16, 2010

We just returned from spending two nights at the Chalet in celebration of our first wedding anniversary/Valentine's Day. The accommodations, food and hospitality are all first class. The decor and atmosphere at the chalet is so warm and welcoming. We especially enjoyed the wood burning fireplace while watching the snow fall outside the huge picture windows. We are already planning on returning next year for our second anniversary.

BEST STAY EVER!!!!!!!! :^)))

5 on January 17, 2010

My husband and I stayed here in Sept. 09 and loved every minute of it! We stayed in two of the three suites. The Woodsview Suite and the Balcony Suite. Both suites were very nice and very clean!! We loved sitting out on the porch with coffee and rocking with a warm blanket around us. Everything here is above anyone's expectations! ( I think ) Margaret and Patti are two of the best ladies I've ever had the pleasure of meeting! From the time we arrived til the time we left our every need was taken care of. Even down to the simple things, such as the type of coffee creamer I used and the type of soda my husband drank! You just can't get much better than that!!! We look forward to going back this year and hopefully staying in the Lee Suite! Can't wait to see these two wonderful ladies and visit our home away from home!! Love you both!! The Rossier's

Winter night away

4.6 on December 20, 2009

My husband and I received a night at this beautiful place for a gift. What a wonderful gift! Our service was amazing. The innkeepers were friendly and seemed to know how to give space when you wanted it, but would chat with you if that is what you wanted. Our food was exquisite! Not only should you spend at least a night here, but you should have dinner also! We have already started recommending this place to our family and friends. We hope to go back to check out the other two suites as well!

Liked it so much, we stayed over!

5 on October 30, 2009

8 day road trip from KC to NY to Canada and back again - where we slept made all the difference. When we arrived here, 'road weary' had taken on new meaning and this felt like walking into Shangri La. So helpful guiding us there, so accomodating as we got lost and arrived late, so deliciously comfortable when we stepped inside. The Balcony Suite is marvelous, cozy, and very well-appointed. The bed was lovely, the see-through fireplace comforting and the bathtub for two romantic. The bathroom was so nice we spent much of our time in the room in the shower, in the tub, or just talking about getting ready for our day. The bed, with skylights above, afforded the best sleep we had on our entire trip and a lovely awakening with the dawn (don't worry, they have shades if you want to sleep in). Of course, we have to mention breakfast. Delicious, local and a superb treat. Never rushed, it helped us start our day with the right perspective. Maggie and Patti's recommendations kept us busy having fun at wine tastings, on scenic drives and wine tasting after wine tasting. We ended the day with a warm fire in the main room, another night in our bedroom, and the third night in the cozy Woodsview Suite - where we woke up to SNOW! I know Patti, not what you wanted to see, but you laughed with us as our midwest excitement could not be contained. I feel like we have friends in the Finger Lakes and can suggest to any of our friends they should stay here. We want to go back, maybe not via 8 day road trip, but flying into the nearby airport. PERFECT place to book for the whole group and have a woman's getaway, a couple's weekend or a business retreat. Really, of all the 9 B&B's we've stayed at in our lifetime, this is the best. I want to live there someday! :) We miss you!

Best B&B we've ever been to -Definitely stay here!

5 on October 12, 2009

We had a phenomenal experience at the Chalet during our week stay there. It was clean, fresh, with superb decorating and a cozy atmosphere. Often we'd curl up on the couch with the soft blankets, the fireplace and a book and just relax. Every space inside and outside on the grounds felt like it was our own special little space and felt like we were at home. Margaret and Patti felt like family & were very engaging, and there wasn't a thing they didn't think of in creating this B&B or in making our stay enjoyable. There were snacks out in the afternoon and a homemade dessert awaited us every night, which we enjoyed by the fire in the great room. The women were wonderful resources for things to do and directions all over the Finger Lakes area, gave dinner recommendations for only top quality places. These restaurants are some of the best we've ever been to, including the Brown Hound and Lumberyard Grill. Breakfast-WOW! They work the menu around your dietary needs and preferences, and their culinary skill inspired me to try things I wouldn't have otherwise. They had fresh flowers on our table each morning and we sat on the porch most mornings with the big space heater - it was perfect to overlook the pond and listen to the morning sounds of nature. The breakfasts were so good that we rarely ate lunch. Bananas Foster over Waffles and the French Toast with Peach Compote - awesome! We were pleased that they strive for a balance between carbs and protein in the breakfasts. We stayed in the Woodsview Suite and couldn't have been happier. There are a variety of extra amenities in the bathroom and the soaps smelled amazing! The double shower was great! The room has a great programmable gas fireplace. So nice! The other major wine trails and hiking locations (nearly all that we went to have beautiful waterfalls) are all within an hour drive. All in all it was a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend this B&B to anyone traveling to the Finger Lakes area.

Best ever B&B experience

5 on October 11, 2009

The Chalet of Canandaigua is wonderful, the three suites have every conceivable comfort, the breakfasts are imaginative and tasty, but it is the hosts Pattie and Margaret who set this B&B apart. Their hospitality stems from their genuine interest in people, their warmth and their good humour. They succeed in making every guest feel special. We live in Britain and travel relatively widely both in Europe and in the US - our stay at the Chalet was without doubt our best ever B&B experience.

Great experience!

5 on October 03, 2009

My wife and I recently spent our honeymoon in the Lee Suite. Our entire stay was so relaxing. Patti and Margaret were such great hosts and made us feel extremely welcome, comfortable, and aware of what was available to us in the area. Even though we weren't the only guests there for our entire stay, they made us feel like we were. The room was so comfortable and clean. Breakfast, each morning, was AMAZING! All in all, it was a great experience and we defnitely plan to return in the future!

The Chalet MADE our honeymoon!

5 on October 03, 2009

My husband and I spent an amazing week at the Chalet of Canandaigua last week for our honeymoon. It was even more wonderful than the reviews can say. It's secluded off the main road but located conveniently close to downtown Candaigua. We stayed in the Lee Suite and didn't ever want to leave... amazing bedding, beautiful fireplace, comfortable chairs and a really wonderful bathroom. Everything was spotless and in beautiful condition. When we first arrived Margaret and Patti really helped us with with getting to know the area and our suite. The breakfasts were the best we ever had (seriously) and they're recommendations for dinner and things to see in the area were beyond helpful. We're already saving up for another trip to the Chalet and can't wait to return. Margaret and Patti are really sweet people who are obviously passionate about what they do and provide an amazing escape close to the Finger Lakes wineries. I would recommend that Chalet to anyone!!

yummy, comfortable and worth the $

Our stay was only one night, but it was awesome. The Woodsview Suite was "sweet." The innkeepers. Patti and Margaret treated us like we were friends, and served us like we were royalty. If you stay at the Chalet, you will be impressed. Dan Carman

Quiet and relaxing

My husband and I stayed at the Chalet last weekend and loved every second of it. The drive up to the Chalet on the winding drive and around the pond puts you at peace before you even step foot into the B&B. We were greeted by the friendly innkeepers, Patty and Margaret. Both were very welcoming and provided us a full tour of the stunning Chalet. The warm woodwork and comfy furniture is very inviting through the entire B&B. There are breathtaking views from the porch. We were brought to our room which was the Balcony suite. We had a king bed and a huge updated bathroom with a soaking tub for two and a stand alone shower. We have never had a bathroom even close to comparison at any other B&B. The room was quaint and cozy yet spacious with a two sided fireplace and skylights above the bed. The innkeepers were very knowledgable of the area and gave great recommendations for things to do and see in the area as well as restaurants to eat at. We took a class at the nearby NY Wine and Culinary Insitute which was so much fun! We had homemade apple pie waiting for us when we returned from dinner and a fantastic 3 course breakfast in the morning! Our stay at the Chalet far exceeded our expectations for a quiet anniversary weekend without kids in every way possible. We felt comfortable and at home the entire time. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet getaway!

Best birthday gift ever!

Patty & Margaret were the best B&B inn keepers we have ever met. I planned a surprised birthday weekend for my husband and they went well above and beyond anything that I could have hoped for. The dinning experience and the food were the best since our honeymoon. We plan on coming back every year and will have dinner in rather than going out, you will not have a better time, meal or experience anywhere that will compare to the Chalet!

A Real Special B&B

This is a beautiful B&B in a beautiful setting. It has woods in the back and a pond in the front. The public areas and our room were lovely and unique - modern in a log cabin. We enjoyed having a large tub and a separate large shower. The breakfast was delicious - creative and well cooked, including the best scone I've ever had. And the innkeepers made us feel that we were visiting friends. They made sure we went to good restaurants and helped us plan our day. I've stayed in many B&B's, and this one has it all - facility, food and hospitality.

Best B&B in the area!

We stayed at The Chalet on our way from NYC to Toronto...what a find...the Balcony Suite was the best, they have thought of everything to make our stay relaxing. The breakfast was fantastic, the best Eggs Benedict I ever had. We highly recommend The Chalet and will be back again!

Peaceful, elegant, with great hosts and food!

My wife and I booked a two day stay at the Chalet after seeing reviews on this site and Trip Advisor. The Chalet and its wonderful owners, Margaret and Pattie, exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the Lee Suite. It was elegantly decorated like the rest of the Chalet. It had a very comfortable king-sized bed (see photo) and an amazing bathroom complete with a large walk-in shower and a GIANT soaking tub. Margaret and Pattie were just amazing hosts. They attended to our every need and yet gave us space to relax and enjoy the Great Room (see photo). If you love food, you will be in heaven at Breakfast. It consists of three courses, one from Pattie, one from Margaret, and the third prepared by both of them. The second day our breakfast was the best we have ever had at a B & B, and we have stayed at many of them. The photo of breakfast is the third course from our second morning, which included French toast with mascarpone filling topped with a fruit compote. If you are looking for a peaceful, elegant, yet comfortable B&B, with charming hosts and AMAZING food, you need to go to the Chalet.

Extradordinary Bed and Breakfast

My daughter took me and two of our best friends for a wine tour and we stayed overnight at the Chalet. What a wonderful experience. It was exceptional. Hospitality, cleanliness, atmosphere, decor, and the food with all the little and big extras were suburb. We can't wait to go back in the fall to see the colors and visit with Patti and Margaret again.

We will be back....

We have stayed in a number of hotels and B&Bs, but this is one of the best!!!! There are a number of amenities in the room that make it heavenly: the decadently comfortable pillow top bed, the towel warmer in the bathroom, the Victorian soaking tub that easily fits two full sized adults. Some B&Bs serve a simple breakfast of bacon and eggs. The Chalet has kicked this up a notch with bistro level food. For our breakfasts they served a Bananas Foster on Waffles one day and a meatless Eggs Benedict that were to die for....It snowed the weekend we were there and it was quite romantic looking out from our room seeing the show fall down through the trees. We will definitely be back

Wonderful; beyond words

The chalet is cozy and charming, the bathrooms are magnificent, the food was phenomenal but the key deiiferentiators are Patti and Margaret, the Innkeepers. They are so lovely and attentive. It is truly an escape.
