The Ellwanger Estate: Bed & Breakfast

An Urban Retreat

Due to the Coronavirus and the intense cleaning process, we have a minimum stay of 2 day stay. Please review our Policies/Covid-19, under “The Estate”.
Enjoy our Winter rates that are now in effect until March 31, 2021.
The Ellwanger Estate is putting out our own Pandemic Pod Package (PPP)! Do you have a pod (small, self-contained networks of people who limit their non-distanced social interaction to one another)? We are offering this special for you and your pod people!
Stay 3 or more nights and reserve 4 rooms (so as few as 4 people or as many as 8) and receive a different activity (complimentary) for the whole group each night you stay! These activities were chosen with what we love about Rochester and spending time with close friends and/or family. You may book direct (package will display after dates are chosen) or you may call. Good until 4/30/21

Expect the Best: From the moment you walk into the Ellwanger Estate, you’ll know you’re not in any ordinary bed and breakfast.

Soft lighting illuminates the smartly placed decor. Natural woodwork brings added warmth to the immaculate interior space. A fresh outdoor aroma coupled with streaks of sunlight gently passes through the skylights. The Ellwanger Estate is an oasis where you’ll actually enjoy spending time in your room as well as discovering the magnificent grounds. We offer FOUR guest rooms, a wraparound veranda, 3 acres of gardens, grassy knolls, woodlands, greenhouses, a carriage house with the “Grand Hotel (Chicken) Coop”, and a smoke-free and green environment, utilizing eco-friendly practices.
