Canandaigua Bed and Breakfast

March 21, 2019 by Innkeeper

It’s been almost 15 years since I moved from California to upstate New York to own and operate a Canandaigua Bed and Breakfast. I wanted to challenge myself and grow by taking on a business I knew very little about, in an area I had never heard of before. Perhaps it was a little crazy mixed with courage. But I was energized by the move and change in profession and am even more energized now. I love the Finger Lakes and am so very content to call it home. Welcoming guests to the 1795 Acorn Inn Bed and Breakfast and playing a part in making their Finger Lakes adventure special is tremendously rewarding.

Canandaigua Bed and Breakfast – Newsletter

This spring, I am embarking on a new adventure… a newsletter. Perhaps not so monumental a task as shaking up my life, but a new adventure nonetheless. The initial list of recipients will be those that have stayed at the 1795 Acorn Inn Bed and Breakfast in the past two years. Hopefully we will add on that list to include new guests that have stayed and perhaps others that haven’t… yet. New guests can sign up for our newsletter by visiting our website. Scroll halfway down any page and a sign up form will pop up. It’s that easy. There may even be a special offer for our inaugural newsletter recipients.

The intent is to share some of our breakfast recipes. I know many of you ask for them and hopefully have tried them at home. To keep you appraised of upcoming festivals and events. Have you seen the line up for CMAC? And, to share specials or news about the Inn. For instance, I am thinking of allowing pets in our Barn Suite. I’ll certainly let you know how that works out. As time goes by, I am confident there will be no lack of content.

I’ve watched Canandaigua and the Finger Lakes grow over the years and have grown with it. I have many more interests and have found ways to experience many of the same things you do… even more because I have the privilege of living here. I hope you will find value in each newsletter’s content and perhaps find another reason to visit this spectacular area in the near future. I’d love to have you stay again.

Concert Event Shuttle

May 24, 2017 by Innkeeper

I just learned that there is a concert event shuttle available. CMAC, Constellation Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center, has a shuttle from some local restaurants to some concert events. The shuttle will pick you up at various local restaurants. For instance, Macri’s, Simply Crepes, Greenfront or Nolans. And, it will drop you off at the VIP entrance. Parking for the venue is generally simple. However, sometimes there are lines to get into the parking lots and a little bit of a walk to the venue. General parking is around $10 and VIP is about $20.

Most noteworthy and for those that don’t already know, CMAC is a fantastic outdoor amphitheater. It’s a wonderfully small venue with great summer line ups. There are covered seats and lawn seats. As a result, and in my opinion, there is not a bad seat in the house. Well, honestly the lawn is not for me. But it certainly is full most of the time.

The shuttle is not available for all concerts. Therefore, I suggest you check their website for details. https://www.cmacevents.com/cmac-experience/

Shuttle Availability

Currently the shuttle is available for:
June 17 – Elivs Costello
July 2 – Tom Petty
July 23 – Rod Stewart and Cyndi Lauper
August 18 – Santana

Fortunately I have seen John Legend, Tim Mcgraw, Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson, Ed Sheerhan, Hunter Hayes, Lady Antelbellum, Peter Frampton and more.

Have a great time.

Keith Urban At Constellation Brands-Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center

August 11, 2013 by Innkeeper

I don’t know how it could get better than this for a concert venue.  And to boot, in New York State’s Finger Lakes and ten minutes from the Inn.

Keith Urban in Canandaigua – Video

You gotta see this video.  Don’t know if this will work as I’ve never posted a video on my blog before.  But, if it doesn’t work and you want to see, become a fan of the 1795 Acorn Inn on facebook.  I successfully posted the video there.  Thanks.
