Romantic Inn / B&B & Couples Getaway in Rochester
Kiss & Tell
My mother has always been a huge fan of raspberries, but I’ve always found them to be too tart. I had never tasted wineberries before my time at the Ellwanger Estate Bed and Breakfast, but I’ve fallen in love with them. They have the same fresh and sweet flavor of raspberries without the sharp tartness. I would recommend Rosemary’s garden fresh wineberries to anyone. During my time as a hospitality intern at the Ellwanger Estate, we have picked wineberries over the last couple of weeks to create wonderful fruit masterpieces, such as fruit poodles, kiwi roses surrounded by exquisite fruit mosaics and delicious and ornate fruit parfaits. Our guests have been highly impressed by our fresh organic produce, and our dedication to providing a genuine farm to table dining experience. Rosemary introduced me to wineberries, and it has been a wonderful addition to my fruit repertoire. Come and let us delight you with some wineberries at the finale of their season!
With gratitude and high hopes of meeting you!

The Landmark Society of Western New York’s bulletin announced: “The 2017 Statewide Preservation Conference returns to the city of Rochester, April 6-8th. Downtown Rochester is undergoing a profound transformation, fueled in large part by historic preservation. “In short, preservation will surround us at every turn”.
And now the rest of the story…
On a balmy September evening in 1937, Helen C. Ellwanger gathered her nearest and dearest friends and colleagues into the Ellwanger Estate carriage house and proceeded to form the Landmark Society of Western New York. This was part of an effort to save the deteriorated Greek Revival Campbell Whittlesey House on South Fitzhugh Street in the city. The Society went on to become an advocate for saving and restoring our area’s historic buildings. That was 80 years ago.
Her legacy continues here and now at her home: the Ellwanger Estate, which received the Landmark’s Historic Home Award in 2014. This award is given to owners of private residences for their continued care of and commitment to the preservation of an architecturally significant house over a minimum of seven years. So, In short, preservation does surround us at every turn. Perhaps you would like to take a turn, as a guest at the Ellwanger Estate B&B.

We have taken our wedding photographs outside on a beautiful April afternoon and booked the Traveler’s Rest for a mini honeymoon. We spent our first breakfast together on the porch overlooking the sun-drenched yard with the deer and birds. We are so happy to be able to stay such a wonderful bed-and-breakfast. We couldn’t have asked for a better time. We are moving to Pittsburgh, PA, in a few months and will definitely be coming back to capture the feeling of our wedding weekend. Thank you so much for this wonderful urban retreat. See you soon!”
Jen shared this: “What is surprising pocket of humanity and gentility tucked into a corner of all the bustle of that I have come to think of as Rochester.
