Beautiful, so very clean. Great breakfast. But the bed was old and uncomfortable. The room was on the small side, but the bathroom was very nicely appointed. The house! It is a gem. A bit too expensive!

The breakfast was wonderful.Staff is very attentive and friendly. We love our stays at this B&B. They did a wonderful job of renovating this old house into a B&B and keeping with the original architecture. It is an old house with old house issues, but that just adds to its character.

This is the best bed-and-breakfast experience I have ever had! My family had a reunion in Rochester recently, and we all stayed at the Edward Harris House. On other occasions we have stayed at their cottages on Long Pond or the Genesee River. Susan and Manny greeted us with incredible hospitality on the evening of our arrival, making us feel...

Spent 4 nights here over MLK Jr weekend in 2017 for a family reunion. Susan and Manny were over-the-top accommodating and welcoming - affording our family an unsurpassed family reunion experience that would not have been possible without their hospitality. The house itself is spacious, clean, and anticipates every need (tea, cookies, books, magazines all at the ready). Each room...

My family has been choosing the Edward Harris House for lodging for many years. I grew up in a large family in Rochester, and we stay at the Edward Harris House or the River Cottage or Pond Cottage at least once or twice per year - pretty much every time we can. The inn itself is spacious, stunning and historic,...

The Edward Harris House in Rochester is a very beautiful Victorian Bed and Breakfast. I was delighted with its elegance and comfort. I also appreciated its location. It is quite close the the Eastman House and also Rochester's art museum. It is within walking distance of the Park Avenue shopping and dining area, which has a lot of elegance and...

Thank you so much! Fall in Rochester is always a treat! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay - even if brief. Perhaps next time you can carve out a little more time to see what Rochester has to offer.

The location, architecture, furnishings and cleanliness of this Inn is superior. The rooms are large and well fitted out. The cold and hot breakfast was delicious, including choice of ingredients in a 1-2-3 egg omelette, fresh fruit and a baked flan. The hosts were friendly and very accommodating.

We were there for 4 nights and loved it!! The owners Susan and Manny made us feel so welcome right from the start!

Stayed in the garden suite for a lovely July 4th weekend in Rochester. The location was perfect with an easy walk to many different restaurants. Breakfast each morning was delicious and the house was truly a home away from home as we were able to reheat leftovers and enjoy them in the living room. If we come to Rochester again,...
