Exceeding your B & B expectations
Welcome to our Bed and Breakfast in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York State. The 1795 Acorn Inn is located in the Bristol Valley just a few miles from Canandaigua. Ours is the only New York bed and breakfast to receive the prestigious AAA Four-Diamond Award for 14 consecutive years.
The B&B offers the serenity and ever-changing landscape of the country with many fabulous restaurants and a variety of attractions nearby. Thoroughly renovated and beautifully appointed with antiques and fine furnishings, the Inn offers the simple elegance of the past seamlessly integrated with modern comfort and luxury.
We invite you to relax in the luxurious Gathering Room. Or retreat to the seclusion of one of the individually-decorated, sound-proofed guest rooms. Soak in the outdoor Jacuzzi during your own exclusively reserved time. Or wander through the multi-terraced gardens. Enjoy a gourmet candlelit breakfast in the Dining Room furnished with an antique Tiger Maple table and comfortable Windsor Chairs. Whether you choose to gently sway in the quilted hammock or unwind before a cozy fire, a stay at the 1795 Acorn Inn is a truly calming, contented escape.
The Inn is also an ideal location for a Bristol Valley New York Wedding. The bed and breakfast is beautifully suited to host social occasions in addition to weddings, including receptions, elegant bridal showers, reunions and retreats for friends and family for 12 to 14 guests. Staff is on hand to assist with coordinating your special event including a wedding coordinator and private chef to handle all your catering needs.
Enter into the Gathering Room and be embraced by its charm and elegance. The room's dÃ©cor transforms with the seasons... cool and refreshing in the summer, warm and comforting in the fall and winter.
Take pleasure in a gourmet breakfast served at 9:00 am by candlelight in our Dining Room. We begin with a hot beverage of your choice, juice and fresh fruit. Then enjoy one of our many plentiful entrees such as French Toast CrÃ¨me Brule or Spinach and Bacon Strata. All entrees are served with sausages, breakfast patties or ham and our savory entrees include a freshly-baked buttermilk biscuit. Enjoy the company of new-found friends and start your day energized.

Within the soundproofed Inn, four luxurious guestrooms with private baths provide seclusion. In addition, a spacious suite located in our 100 year old barn delivers complete solitude. Newly remodeled with total comfort in mind, the Barn Suite is the ultimate retreat. Complimentary beverages, ice and snacks are available at all times. And, for those that simply must stay connected, wireless high-speed internet is also available throughout the Inn.
The Inn is surrounded by walled gardens and wooded areas. Comfortable, intimate seating arrangements are scattered throughout. A cascading fountain and bubbling ponds further promote relaxation. And a quilted hammock nestled under impressive trees provides the perfect place to take a nap, catch up on your reading or watch for shooting stars.
In the spring and throughout the seasons, dozens of perennials display a kaleidoscope of color. In summer, the lush tree canopy overhead provides an abundance of shade. These same trees are set ablaze with various hues of red, yellow and orange as autumn descends on the region. And during the winter months, watch giant snowflakes gather on window ledges and tree branches from the warm comfort of your room.
Whether snow is falling or fragrant lilacs are in bloom, relax in the secluded, outdoor hot tub during your privately reserved time. (We do not take hot tub reservations in advance of stays. The sign up sheet is refreshed daily and guests must be checked into the Inn to make their own reservations.) Whenever you decide to visit, a stay at the 1795 Acorn Inn is a truly relaxing and romantic retreat.
