B&B at Oliver Phelps Information


The Oliver Phelps house was built in 1813 and expanded in 1830. An example of Greek revival architecture, it retains lovely features for today’s guests: twelve-foot ceilings, wide plank floors, blown glass window panes, old-growth trees on the grounds, and the spaciousness of a great Federal period home. Experience Canandaigua from one of five comfortably appointed and spacious guest rooms, all with private en-suite baths, several with fireplaces. Our home is tastefully furnished with period antiques, but updated for all modern conveniences, including WiFi and central air conditioning. Awake to a delicious three course gourmet breakfast served with local juices, coffee, or tea. Start by exploring our website for the array of choices that will make your vacation in the Finger Lakes memorable. And please contact us – we'll be happy to help with your planning.

I am fortunate to have a plethora of lovely friends with diverse appetites from around the planet, and it has been my honor to learn the many styles of breakfasts from them. Over the years they have been my taste kitchen as I honed my skills with: Gluten -Free, Pescatarian, Vegetarian, Pork-free, Carnivore, Sugar free, Vegan, Flexible Vegan (Vegan-ish :), Full on Gourmet (food snob), farm – to – table, and of course local and Organic. For you I will create a meal that is sumptuous, healthy, farm-to table, and organic when possible. Expect a 3-course breakfast that fulfills your needs for something you might not make yourself–but are sure glad I’m making it for you! I come from a large family and know how to fill you up with the right kind of energy for you to enjoy either an active day, or simply a stroll around town! Breakfast is served with fresh brewed local organic coffee, juice and water. A large variety of tea selections are also available.
