Inn on the Main offers a stunningly peaceful Victorian atmosphere with all the amenities expected from a quality Bed and Breakfast. Guy and Jaynee make you feel as though you are their favorite guests, despite obviously having many delighted travelers at their inn. The rooms are cozy yet spacious with comfy beds and tasteful furnishings. The Inn has numerous nooks...

This was our first stay in the Burrell suite. It's very nice, with a jacuzzi, a separate room with a couple sized comfy chaise, and a pretty view of the back yard. There were chocolates in the room and the shower has a special dispenser for toiletries. The hosts are gracious and kind. Homemade treats await guests each evening. And...

This was our first time staying in a B&B and we really enjoyed our stay. They played the perfect hosts for the two nights we spent there. The place was impeccably clean and the bed was huge.

This was not our first B&B but it easily ranks amongst the best we have stayed at. The attention to detail in every way is simply astounding., from the first greeting to the decor, to the ammenities. The breakfast was as good or better than you will find in any 5 star hotel. Fran &Allan

I recently returned from my first visit to Canandaigua and my stay at Inn on the Main. I have stayed at many B&Bs across the country and the thing that stuck out most about this one was how clean our room was! Not a spec of dust! We stayed in the Clement room--beautiful and very quiet.

We had a lovely two night stay at the 1840 Inn. Accommodations were very comfortable and breakfasts were delicious. Guy and Jaynee are great innkeepers and full of helpful information. We will happily return - a show at the lovely CMAC makes for a great excuse.

This was our first stay at a B&B and what a wonderful experience it was! Jaynee and Guy made our stay like a visit with family, and the food was absolutely fantastic. Both Jaynee and Guy did everything possible to make our stay in Canandaigua a trip to remember. We truly hated to leave. Thanks so much, Kathy & Jeff

“Each room had a log book for visitors to record their experiences. There were refrigerators and coffee makers on both floors available at all times to the visitors. There was plenty of parking behind the house. Located on Main St, a rather busy road, but the house is set back and it was quiet enough for easy sleeping all night.”
