The room was really a suite. There were 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, kitchen and living area. It was very clean and decorated to fit the mansion. There was a large flat screen TV in the living area with smaller flat screen TV in both of the bedrooms. The kitchen was fitted with dishes and pots to be able to cook...

Hi L&B, Thanks for the great summary of the Hamlin Suite and for attention to detail of what we have to offer here at MDI! It is our only condo-style (two bedroom) suite with its own completely stocked kitchen and living room. It's actually an executive apartment complete with its own in-suite stereo system and an in-suite veiw of the...

We found our suite to be clean, well appointed with a flare for the slightly unusual type of décor. Not weird, different. We enjoyed our Jacuzzi tub and the shower which provided a hot shower with good pressure. Our room was on the third floor but it really wasn't an issue getting up there. Had a good view from the...

Thanks so much for being our guests. I’m glad that Chef Jovanna was able to accommodate your dietary needs. The McCoy Pent House Jacuzzi Suite is our personal favorite suite also! It is our most popular, private, and romantic suite. McCoy Suite is our only suite with a private, gaze-at-the-mountains viewing deck. The suite has two separate and unique bedrooms:...

We had a wonderful time here and would have loved to stay longer. It was perfact and a very interesting place to be. The rooms were filled with history, you could spend hours just wondering around and looking at all the things in the house.

A place where you can feel the history. The house itself is worth the trip. It's impossible not to drift back to the 19th century in this superbly maintained historical gem. Throw in the fantastic cuisine by chef Jovanna and the deep and broad historical information about the area politely offered by her husband Ross and you are thoroughly immersed...

I stayed for a 3 day business trip and enjoyed it so much that I booked a personal getaway with my significant other. The owners make you feel right at home and the breakfast far surpassed any expectations. I highly recommend the Mansion District Inn.

I would stay here again in a heartbeat. The home is beautifully maintained, very clean, well appointed and the beds are extremely comfortable. We stayed in the Hamlin Executive Suite for the weekend and were not disappointed. Breakfast was very good and served with some really good coffee. Ross provides some interesting historical information at breakfast which keeps you entertained.

Ross and Jovanna hands-on operate a great B&B+ in Smethport off Route 6. I highly recommend it. Best coffee and breakfast ever at a B&B. Lots of historical information here in a nice mountain rimmed interestingly historical town. Will definitely stay again.

The owners were wonderful people. Very welcoming. The staff was wonderful friendly and helpful. Very clean. The breakfasts were amazing and the owner would tell us the history of the mansion and town. My wife and I had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again. It was way better than I could have expected.
