Our second home when in Rochester

We've stayed at the B&B at Dartmouth House Inn many times over the past 6 years. It has become our virtual "second home" when we visit Rochester. We started as tourists, just visiting Rochester while on a Finger Lakes vacation. We returned a couple of years later to look at colleges, and now we stay at the Dartmouth House when moving our son into and out of his dorm room. The B&B is ideally located in a lovely old neighborhood, within walking distance of several mid-priced, good-quality restaurants. Significant tourist attractions are also within walking distance or a short drive away. Innkeepers Ellie and Bill gladly provide guests with directions to Rochester-area attractions, restaurants, and shopping. There is a covered front porch and a comfortable living room. Guest rooms at the B&B are immaculate and decorated to make your stay enjoyable. The third floor is perfect for use by families. Homemade chocolate chip cookies are one of the many special touches. Guests enjoy a gourmet breakfast served in a formal dining room at a beautifully-appointed table. Ellie and Bill keep table conversation interesting and informative. You will enter Dartmouth House as strangers, but leave with two new friends and wonderful memories of your stay.

Highly Recommended

The inn is a beautiful home in a historic, very well preserved neighborhood. The innkeepers, are the most delightful couple, and I enjoyed my three day stay very much. Breakfast is over the top! Allow an hour for breakfast to fully enjoy the multi-course experience. I'd stay here again, just for the morning meal. The kind of meal Angels eat every morning. Good coffee (or tea if you like), juice, and delicious and perfectly sized portions of culinary delights come one after another, served on antique glass and plateware by candle-light. A wonderful way to start your day. Coffee, tea and snacks in the afternoon are a nice bonus too. The neighborhood is very nice and there are many restaurants and shops within walking distance. The home is beautiful. Built around 1900, it is well maintained, and comforatable. My room was much larger than I expected, with a sitting area. private bath, large closet, etc. The hosts, Bill and Ellie are gracious and friendly and I felt like I was part of their family. I was in Rochester on business, and this was so much nicer than staying at a hotel by the airport or downtown. It was close to work, and it felt like home.

InnSide Tip - Park Avenue Shopping
Take a short stroll through the neighborhood to Park for food... Hogan's has good food/drinks. Check out the used CD store. Have lunch or dinner at Magnolia's cafe.
