Originally built in 1895 on Canandaigua’s historic Main Street, our Victorian lady is a beauty renewed after being meticulously restored back to its original character and splendor, but enhanced with comfortable and modern amenities. Bella Rose Bed and Breakfast is an intimate B&B offering three guest rooms, all with ensuite baths, especially transformed for the ultimate in romance and relaxation.
Guests are welcome to enjoy our formal front parlor thoughtfully decorated to embrace the feel of stepping back in time. Relax and be comfortable in this Victorian atmosphere and imagine life in a different era. Or you could choose to sit in our large open foyer, home to three beautiful, original stained glass windows, ornate oak staircase and toasty gas coal fireplace. Two comfy and cozy chairs flank the fireplace where flames as high as you choose pour amazing amounts of heat on your feet. With steaming hot chocolate cupped in your hands and the fireplace before you, all stresses soon leave your body. In warmer months, the fully-restored wrap-around porch is a welcome haven to enjoy the sights and sounds of Canandaigua with a glass of wine and a good book. And, regardless of the time of year, Canandaigua Lake, the “jewel” of the Finger Lakes, is reachable by foot, approximately one mile away. A delightful walk indeed!
Awake each morning to a scrumptious three-course breakfast served by candlelight in our elegant period dining room. Fresh, local and decadent is what we are all about at breakfast! Piping hot Finger Lakes’ Roasters coffee and gourmet loose leaf teas are offered, as well as your choice of several juices. A typical breakfast begins with a yummy pastry course that varies from warm muffins, breads or scones, made from scratch of course, to homemade cinnamon rolls or sour cream coffeecake, or even a hot-out-of-the-oven lemon pudding cake that everyone devours! We then follow it with a fresh fruit course that highlights in-season local fruits, which we have selected from our favorite organic farm stand or picked ourselves, whenever possible. You must leave room for our main entrée, always a different house specialty every day, such as our homemade cinnamon swirl French toast. Feast your senses on this family recipe sweet dough that is layered with butter, cinnamon and sugar, rolled tight to make that perfect loaf, and then baked till golden. After carving into thick slices, we grill it until caramelized and then lightly dust it with confectionery sugar. Served with locally-produced pure New York State maple syrup, this is not your ordinary breakfast! To make the meal complete, we always serve this with thick-sliced bacon, ham or sausage patties, freshly ground by a local butcher. This Bed and Breakfast in the Finger Lakes is clearly a romantic getaway destination for foodies!
As aspiring innkeepers for many years, we had a dream of opening an intimate Bed and Breakfast especially designed for the adult getaway. We searched for and in 1999 found the perfect home in need of tender loving care, that we restored ourselves and converted to a bed and breakfast from a single-family residence. The result is Bella Rose B&B, and we are thrilled to offer it to you, our special guest. This extensive renovation, complete in December 2006, awaits your visit and we would be honored to welcome you to our “Chosen Spot”, in beautiful, historic, Canandaigua, New York, in the heart of the Finger Lakes.
Your satisfaction is our goal. We strive to make you feel special, whether it is to map out your day to the many Finger Lakes’ wineries, or to find the perfect restaurant for your evening’s meal, or to point you in the right direction to the unique attractions in town. We are our personal concierge, ready to ensure you enjoy the many experiences the Canandaigua Lake area has to offer and give you the best B&B experience of your life!
