1795 Acorn Inn (Canandaigua, New York)

Our Guests Rooms Didn’t Always Have Private Baths

PART I

At some point in this Inn’s history, there was no internal plumbing and guests had to use the Outhouse located just outside the Hotchkiss Room. Thankfully, that was not during my time and now all our rooms and suites have private baths.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Outhouse looks pretty small, but I supposed it may have been quite large as it had three seats.  Though no one really ever went in the Outhouse, we kept it as a reminder of how things used to be.  It made us thankful for indoor plumbing.  And, it made for pretty interesting conversation at the breakfast table.

More to come…
