Kiss & Tell, with Art

Along with all the other amenities that the Ellwanger Estate B&B offers, you can also awaken your inner artist. One of our frequent return guests, Anya Orzechowska, usually manages to depict a local scene or a figure in a painting during her stays.

Recently Anya has been focusing on portraits of pets and says that it is inspiring to capture the love of people she has met for the pet that shares their home. This last weekend, she finished a portrait of Piggy, a Boston terrier with an attitude and Fox, a gentle pit bull.

Although she often works from photographs, Anya says the only problem with painting these tail-wagging pets is that she always wants to take them home with her afterwards!

See Inside

“See Inside” is the latest addition to your Google search of the Ellwanger. Now you can take a virtual tour of the Ellwanger Estate B&B thanks to Andrew Woodard of Spark Fire Web Design.

Andrew writes: “They take such good care of you and the atmosphere is so perfectly rochester.” As a frequent flyer to the Ellwanger, Andrew knows best!

Enjoy!!

Jazzy Holiday Celebration

Safely past Thanksgiving, the talk now turns to Christmas and the winter season. Most people will think warmly of Christmas festivities and hot toddies by the fire but I think of JAZZ.  Our B&B guests are in for a treat this Saturday, December 4th, from 2-4 PM as we usher in the winter holidays with JAZZ!  While the Ellwanger Estate B&B knows how to jazz things up a bit, we also have a little help from our friends.  The 14 foot Fraser Fir is in place, the great hall is decked, and jazz will be in the air this Saturday to hark in the holidays.  All our B&B guests are in for a special stay this weekend.

Looks who is coming to breakfast, my dear deers!

Oh, my dear deers.  They not only came to breakfast, they stayed for lunch-which I don’t serve. However, I do serve up entertainment and they where the stars.

Or as Anya would put it: “The bane of gardeners, the delight of guests”.

Prana, you complete me !

Truly, I am complete with Prana.  The Ellwanger Estate B&B has just completed a full upgrade to the finest organic mattresses made of 100% natural rubber Talalay imported from the Netherlands, quilted with wool and Talalay, and clad in silk, wool and cashmere.  This is a rare-find for an affordable Bed & Breakfast accommodation, in Rochester, New York.

Though some guests will no doubt want to spend much of their time exploring Rochester and the Finger Lake region, the Ellwanger Estate Bed and Breakfast, itself makes for no ordinary place to return to for the night or the afternoon rest.

What a difference a bed, a night, and a day will make, all the while sleeping on a cloud. “Prana sleep is amazing sleep”.  Looking forward to your visit.
