The Inn

An Award-winning Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast Inn

We welcome you to the romantic 1795 Acorn Inn, a cozy Canandaigua, New York Bed and Breakfast noted for its rich décor, warm hospitality and superb attention to detail. A relaxing stay at our historic Finger Lakes bed and breakfast inn is surely to be a treasured memory.

The Inn is among the hospitality elite in North America, which will exceed your Bed and Breakfast expectations. It’s with great pride that the 1795 Acorn Inn is the only B&B in New York State to be awarded the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Award for 20 consecutive years.


Amenities & Common Areas at Our Finger Lakes B&B Inn

Enter into the Gathering Room and be embraced by its charm and elegance. The Gathering Room is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine after a day of exploring and chat with new friends. If only the studs could talk… they would most certainly tell many tales about this centuries’ old house.

The Dining Room is equipped with a hospitality area where guests can help themselves to hot and cold water, tea and snacks. This area is equipped with a microwave, stemware (including plastic stemware for use in our hot tub), ice and wine buckets, bottle openers, as well as plates and cutlery. Complimentary cold beverages are available in our guest fridge with room to spare for chilling a bottle of wine or storing leftovers. A never ending supply of ice is also available 24/7.

An extensive library of DVDs is available at all times. And, for those that simply must stay connected, wireless high-speed internet is available throughout the B&B.


A Finger Lakes Bed & Breakfast Surrounded by Serenity and Relaxation

Our Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast Inn is surrounded by walled gardens and wooded areas. Comfortable, intimate seating arrangements are scattered throughout the grounds. A cascading fountain and bubbling ponds further promote relaxation. And a quilted hammock nestled under an impressive locust tree provides the perfect place to take a nap, catch up on your reading or watch for shooting stars.

Whether snow is falling or fragrant lilacs are in bloom, relax in the secluded, outdoor hot tub during your privately reserved time. (We do not take hot tub reservations in advance of stays. The sign up sheet is refreshed daily and guests must be checked into the Inn to make their own reservations.)

In the spring and throughout the seasons, dozens of perennials display a kaleidoscope of color. In summer, the lush tree canopy overhead provides an abundance of shade. These same trees are set ablaze with various hues of red, yellow and orange as autumn descends on the region. And during the winter months, watch giant snowflakes gather on window ledges and tree branches from the warm comfort of your room.

Whenever you decide to visit, a stay at the 1795 Acorn Inn is a truly relaxing and romantic retreat.


We felt so cared for during our perfect Valentine’s Day getaway. The hot tub under the stars and snow-covered branches was a highlight!” Melissa & Burton, Rochester, NY
