Description

Circa 1853. Set on spacious lawns, behind a white picket fence, the Asa Ransom House rests on the site of the first grist mill built in Erie County. Silversmith Asa Ransom constructed an inn and grist mill here in response to the Holland Land Company's offering of free land to anyone who would start and operate a tavern. A specialty of the dining room is "Veal Perrott" and "Pistachio Banana Muffins."

Loved it!

What a great place to stay. The food was awesome. Nice fruit and cheese awaited in our room upon arrival. Great location to stay for going on the Niagara Wine Tour.

romantic

My wife and I truly enjoyed this B&B as a romantic, spur of the moment getaway. From the beautiful fruit and drink arrangement in our room upon arrival to the wonderful gourmet dinner served on site, the Asa Ransom House has our vote for number 1!
