An old, interesting accommodation with great character. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was obviously prepared by the hosts and was different and very tasty. We have a vegan in our party who was well catered for (including vegan butter!)

My parents and I had a great trip to Canandaigua to visit family for the holiday weekend and the Inn was a perfect place to stay. The room was very comfortable, the breakfasts were terrific and the hosts were very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend the Inn on the Main.

David, It was a pleasure to host your family, and I'm glad the Burrell Room worked out for you with the sofa bed to accommodate a 3rd person. We both hope, should you return for another family visit, you will think of us again. Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Jaynee & Guy

Only had the time for a single night stay, but was a fantastic night away from our young kids. The room and bed were comfortable and well appointed. Location was excellent. Breakfast was perfect. It was the stay we imagined and spent hours researching prior to booking.

Hey, Rochester is just a skip and a jump away from us, but many travelers come to unwind, reconnect, and enjoy the wonders of Canandaigua Lake, and our historic little city. We do hope when you need another getaway, you will consider 1840 Inn on the Main again. Jaynee & Guy

The owners went out of their way to accommodate my husband and I. I had a swim at 8am and before I left there was a bagel and coffee waiting for me! Kind, humble people. Dinner reservations we're make within 30 minutes of arrival. Perfect place for Amy occasion!

We stayed two nights and plan to return for more in the future. The suite was great, the breakfasts were fantastic, and Jaynee and Guy were wonderfully welcoming. Grab a bottle of a nice Finger Lakes wine, sip while you sit out on the porch on a warm summer evening, and you'll wish time could stand still!
