You have a little over a week until Valentine’s Day. Don’t be that guy (or girl) who waits until the last minute and then rushes out to buy a half-wilted roses and a box of generic chocolates.

The Ellwanger Estate B&B knows how to celebrate romance! We are the proud recipients of the I Love Inns and American Historic Inns “Top 10 Most Romantic Inns of North America” award, and featured in Travel and Leisure, Rochester Magazine, INNS Magazine, and Design Sponge: Rochester, NY city guide.

If you have no idea what to write inside, here’s a thought by Elizabeth Barrett Browning:
I love you not only for what you are,
but for what I am when I am with you.
I love you not only for what you have made of yourself,
but for what you are making of me.
I love you for the part of me that you bring out.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
When the 7th District Federation Garden Clubs of NYS asked if I would participate in the 35th Candlelight Holiday Tour on November 11,2017, I was honored. After all it was Veterans Day, I’m a Vet, how perfect! The only request was to have a live tree in place for decorating the week prior to the home tour. I said no problem. Oops, big problem. All my tree sources dried up and I was faced with the daunting task of finding a 12-14 foot tree and have it delivered by November 6th. So down the yellow pages I go, coming up empty. Then, happily Woody Aces returned my call and said, “I think we can help you”! Off I go to meet with Dave, the owner, and with in 5 minutes we find “the” tree. But just to be sure, we continued touring the rest of the 1100 acres on a 4 wheeler and I had the time of my life. He not only delivered the tree (on that Sunday) but also assisted with set up and trimming. So, with the most perfectly beautiful tree in place, I’m set. Not so fast. There was the question of possibly having a working fireplace in time for the home tour. I have lived here 11 years and have never had a working fireplace. It was about time. So I placed a call to Leroy Hearth and Home, they came, counseled, ordered, delivered and set up in record time, and just in time. What a tremendous difference-for both me and my guests! Hat’s off the Woody Acres, Leroy Hearth and Home, The 7th District Federation Garden Clubs of NYS, and to our supportive community for making this Candlelight tour a resounding success. And now for all to enjoy a grinch-proof Holiday Season at the Ellwanger Estate B&B.
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!
