Circa 1880. Feel immersed in the natural beauty of Mount Hope and Highland Park Preservation area near the Genesee River and the ambiance of this historic estate in the heart of Rochester, New York. This premiere lodging destination in the Finger Lakes includes the famous Ellwanger Gardens and courtyards. Relax with a cool drink on the restored wraparound veranda after a stroll among the well-maintained lush foliage which changes with the seasons. Gather by the piano in the large fireside Great Room and Grand Hall. Browse through the library with DVDs, books, games and magazines. A guest refrigerator is stocked with bottled water. Teas, coffee and fresh-baked cookies are also provided. Eco-friendly accommodations feature air-conditioned guest rooms that reflect a distinct personality and boast hand-pressed Egyptian cotton linens and an abundance of upscale amenities. Breakfast in the formal dining room or conservatory is a delightful repast of classic and creative recipes made with fresh local and organic ingredients. Enjoy bird watching with binoculars and guides. Access to the Genesee Riverway Trail is just footsteps away.
