  • History

    Playwrite-Actor Judson Morgan from Famous "Canadian Morgans" fell in love with this beautiful 1810 mansion and selected it as his upstate New York Farm hideaway. Later, inventor, industrialist, Johnson Administration official and New York governor hopeful Howard Samuels and his wife, Bobbie, raised their family in this gracious mansion.

    Today, proprietors John and Julie Sullivan offer guests Victorian comfort and atmosphere at this magnificent estate. Located in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country, approximately one mile from Canandaigua Lake, the Morgan Samuels Inn offers ultimate tranquility for the discerning visitor.

    Your escape will prove to be the difference between ordinary and legendary.
