The Barnhouse Bed and Breakfast At Grace Acres

4600 River Road , Scottsville, NY 14546 USA (Show map)


The barnhouse with exposed laminated beams and rustic charm is a treat. We are a short, convenient ride to RIT, The U of R and Roberts Wesleyan. Bring your horse/trailer and ride the adjacent NY State Greenway for miles. We have an indoor and outdoor riding arena as well. Gift shop on the premises.

Libby is so friendly and warm. It is a peaceful inviting place. The breakfast would make a farm hand proud. I stay there when I visit my son at RIT two to three times a year for the last 4 years. Highly recommend!

A Restful Haven

My husband and I absolutely loved our stay at Grace Acres. Our hosts were so friendly and inviting, the rooms were quaintly decorated and perfectly clean and the full course breakfast made me beg Libby for her recipes. Will definitely stay there again if we're in the area.

A restful stay at Barnhouse.

My husband and I live only a short distance away, but needed a night away just for refreshment. Libby and Ron have done a superb job of creating just the right atmosphere. We were welcomed and shown our room. It felt like a romantic hide-away. Everything was so pretty, clean and absolutely comfortable. Libby's lemon cake is to die for, and our breakfast was wonderful. We look forward to going back. Thank you Libby and Ron!

Beautiful, relaxing and quiet

We rented several rooms for an RIT graduation for family that stayed over. Our hosts were very friendly, gracious and accommodating. The setting is very beautiful in a country setting. The rooms were all very nice, as well as the large living room / dining area. We had several additional guests over for dinner and conversation. It was so relaxing to sit in the living room and talk. as if it were your own home. We had a delicious hot breakfast -- better than any five-star restaurant. I would highly recommend this wonderful establishment.

Made RIT's parent's weekend super!!

What a hidden gem! Libby and Ron were wonderful hosts. The rooms are fabulous, breakfast is amazing, the view of the morning sunrise is outstanding. We will definitely be back while our son is attending RIT.

My husband and I recently stayed at Grace Acres. We were thrilled with our stay...the rooms were cozy with all the modern amenities without loosing it's rustic charm. The breakfast was a amazing hearty meal - Libby's pumpkin squares were delicious!! The hosts Ron and Libby were very welcoming and wonderful hosts. We are looking forward to visiting again!

A Very Pleasant Stay

We enjoyed out stay here. The room was very comfortable. The hosts were friendly and very welcoming. The breakfast was good (and very generous). As the B&B is in farm country, it is very quiet and we slept without interruptions. In the morning, we walked along a green way trail (looked like an old railway bed that had been converted) and spent some time watching the owner's horses. Overall, this was a very pleasant stay and we highly recommend this B&B.

About the innkeepers

Libby enjoys all things horses and outdoors. Truth be told Ron has labored tirelessly to get and keep the property looking lovely. The large community garden is beautiful. It's bounty to be enjoyed by guests. Fruit trees, too. Ron has been known to grab a rod and sport fish in the pond at the end of the day.
