Food forward experience

5 on June 01, 2018

We were here for a weekend and it was pure bliss. I knew there would be a nice breakfast (understatement), but when we heard about the 7 course tapas dinner on Saturday we immediately cancelled our dinner reservations for that night. Incredible dinner experience - a true tour around the world. The rooms were large, clean, updated, and comfortable. The innkeepers were a real joy, and took care of us completely. I would go back without hesitation!


First class accommodation run by a very competent couple

5 on April 27, 2017

I stayed at this absolutely FIRST CLASS B&B in January 2017. I was pampered and felt very much at home: Rossana and Andrew are the best hosts I have ever met in my international travels over the last 40 years. I will definitively stay here again when in Geneva and I do recommend the Rose Petal Inn to all your readers.


Simply exquisite!

We recently booked a vacation to the Finger Lakes area to relax and unwind. We stayed at the Rose Petal Inn near Seneca Lake. From the moment we arrived, we were completely comfortable and relaxed. Our hosts, Rossana and Andrew, gave us a tour and the rules of the house. All the guest rooms are spacious and charming. Our room, the Adelina, was directly above the kitchen. Despite our best efforts to sleep in, we were greeted each day with the amazing aroma of Chef Andrew's cooking! And the food was out of this world! Chef Andrew is a former firefighter/firehouse chef who plays short order cook in the morning, preparing any number of delightful treats at your request. The Breakfast Nirvana, Breakfast Crepes, Omelettes, Waffles, so many scrumptious choices! We were there 6 nights and didn't get to try them all. And our goal of doing nothing was foiled by all the fun activities in the area! Wine and cheese tasting, outdoor activities including architectural walking tours, hiking, jogging by the lake, boating on the lake, and so many museums nearby! The Corning glass museum was outstanding and ladies you must go to Seneca Falls - Home of the Women's Suffrage movement. I can't say enough good things here. Must come back to The Rose Petal Inn. Truly Old world hospitality with modern conveniences.


Excellent hospitality!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Rose Petal Inn. The hosts Rossana and Chef Andrew were so hospitable, we felt as if we were staying with relatives. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the food was fresh and well prepared by Chef Andrew. We had several dishes to choose from for breakfast, there was organic coffee prepared in a french press with several courses. We also enjoyed the tapas style dinner which was top notch, as well as the desserts prepared by Rossana's daughter. The location is very convenient to downtown Geneva which has several bars, restaurants and shops. It is also very convenient to many wineries along Seneca Lake and about 45 minutes from Watkins Glen. We were very comfortable during our stay and we can't wait to return with friends!


Great Place to Stay

Recently, my husband and I spent three nights at The Rose Petal Inn. From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed very warmly by the owners, Andrew and Rossana. They are so friendly, helpful, and make you feel right at home. The inn is beautifully decorated and meticulously clean. Our room, The Mirella, was comfortable with a spacious bathroom. The breakfasts were excellent. Everything was fresh and well prepared by Chef Andrew and the hosts' daughter Marina who is a baking and pastry chef. There were several dishes to choose from such as delicious crepes, croissants and waffles with a variety of options for each dish. The daily fresh fruit cup with mascarpone topping and served in elegant glassware was also a welcome treat. We hope to be back again some day . Anita and Neil, Ottawa, Canada


Great place to stay in the Finger Lakes!

The Rose Petal Inn is a real gem! The hosts, Rosanna and Andrew, have created a charming setting-- complete with a lovely front porch for relaxing! The rooms are large and comfortable, each with a nicely-sized modern bathroom. The food was amazing! Fresh. local produce. Outstanding crepes, omelets, and don't pass up the waffle sandwich--it does live up to its name of Breakfast Nirvana! We also understand they sometimes offer tapas in the evening and we are already planning our next trip to include sampling those! We felt very welcomed and comfortable during our stay and we will definitely be returning!


My 61st Birthday...

5 on July 22, 2014

I could keep this very short and simply write "DITTO" to what was already written, but I'm compelled to write a little more. My husband made the arrangements to celebrate my birthday at Rose Petal Inn. It was fantastic. We had the 7 course Tapas meal and the 8th course was a birthday cake created by Rosanna's daughter (dark chocolate with strawberries), which was simply the best - ever. Besides the inn being a very nice place to stay, the location is excellent as well and we enjoyed a nice walk downtown and along the lake. Breakfast was gourmet and wrapped up our stay nicely! Andrew & Rosanna are friendly and so much fun to visit with.


A great place to stay while visiting the Finger Lakes

My friends stayed two night and I stayed one. The room was large and comfortable with a large bathroom attached. The hosts were lovely and the food was great - as good as some of the best restaurants I've ever been to.


Great Hospitality!

The hospitality I received at the Rose Petal Inn was relaxing and stimulating at the same time. The food and company were superb. The room was just what I needed for some down time. A most beautiful part of upstate New York. Mary B., Syracuse,NY.


Awesome way to start our vacation!

5 on July 08, 2014

We came from California, as I wanted to show my wife The Finger Lakes and part of Canada. Our first stop was in Geneva, NY and we stayed at the Rose Petal Inn. We were welcomed very warmly by Andrew and Rossana. We loved our room, the Josephina and spent 3 beautiful days in Geneva, NY. The breakfasts were amazing, and what we liked about it was the fact that we had several choices, and between Chef Andrew and Chef Marina (their daughter who is a baking and pastry Chef), we were royally treated. We did their Tapas dinner as well, and we ate like kings! Once of the things my wife appreciated the most was their cleanliness. The place is spotless! We will be back for sure!
