Explore Our Finger Lakes B&B Inn

In 1885, Henry C. Sutherland, the youngest of five brothers who made Canandaigua, “The Chosen Spot”, their home, built a grand Second Empire Victorian home on a 50 acre parcel of farmland. Henry and his wife, Lillian, raised their family on this estate while Henry launched his career as the Vice President of the Canandaigua Tin Company, served on the Board of Directors for the Canandaigua First National Bank, and raised cattle on his farm.

More than 100 years later, while saving the last five acres of the original parcel, Henry and Lillian’s home was completely renovated and restored. The tower lights under the original cast iron decorative cresting have once again been lit. The home, lovingly established as a bed and breakfast, is now known as Sutherland House Victorian Bed and Breakfast.

Inside, guests are welcomed into the Victorian era parlor, often being warmed by a roaring fire. Outside, guests relax on the patio under our magnificent 300 year old copper beech tree surrounded by gardens.

Our Finger Lakes Inn B&B enjoys a convenient location just outside of town, with extra outdoor space and storage for your use. Our unique location, situated on five acres with plenty of parking, allows guests to travel with and park a trailer for boats or vehicles such as snowmobiles and motorcycles. We also have secure indoor storage for bicycles, sports equipment, kayaks, golf equipment, or other items. Additionally, we can accommodate larger gatherings and use outdoor spaces on groomed, flat lawn areas for activities.

is an event at our Canandaigua Bed and Breakfast

Each day at our Canandaigua Bed and Breakfast, a lavish three course gourmet breakfast is served (next to the fire in cold weather), replete with fresh fruit dishes, house-made baked goods, sumptuous entrées, soft music and candlelight. During your stay, each day’s menu is different, alternating between sweet and savory. The epicurean delights don’t stop there – daily fresh homemade cookies and treats are available for your enjoyment.

Fresh brewed coffee is available at 8:00 a.m. in the parlor, and if weather permitting, on the patio. Breakfast is served at 9:00 a.m. As the aroma of fresh brewed coffee and baked goods fill the air, there is anticipation and excitement. Soft music is playing in the background. The candles are lit. A beautiful table is set. And now, a delicious, bountiful three course breakfast is about to be served


Course One:

Enjoy an assortment of juices and fresh coffee, or choose from an assortment of imported loose fine teas from Good Life Tea, served in your own teapot.

A special fruit dish follows. Delight in the discovery of dessert for breakfast, such as Grapefruit Brûlée or Rum Raisin Pears, just to name a few. Other favorites are in-season fruit topped with Vanilla Cremé, Mixed Berries with Limoncello Mascarpone, and Grilled Peaches with Ricotta and Honey.


Course Two:

Next are fresh baked scones, pastries, bread, biscuits, muffins or sweet breads, served with assorted butter, jams and toppings, often house-made.

Accompanied with the baked goods is a Greek Yogurt Sundae or a vegetable dish, such as Spring Salad with fruits and nuts or Roasted Beets with Ginger Spiked Blackberry Vinaigrette and Goat Cheese.

Completely Spoiled!

Bob and Faye, we had a wonderful trip!  Thank you for being so accommodating.  We felt completely spoiled!  We appreciated the chocolate strawberries for our anniversary and that you took the time to help us find activities nearby.  The breakfasts, desserts and snacks were amazing!  Thanks for helping us celebrate our 10th anniversary.  It was fantastic!

Totally Delightful Stay!

“Thank you Bob and Faye for sharing your beautiful home with us! We had a delightful stay in the Parker House Suite… bay windows, two fireplaces, candles, and beautiful view of the grounds and countryside. The Decor was quality Christmas charm top to bottom. It was hard to find a Christmas/Anniversary getaway that offered suite accommodations with a fireplace and jacuzzi, and this B & B offered all that and more! Several locations of snacks, homemade sweets, hot and cold beverages, book cases of reading material, games and movies. And breakfast was so delicious! It was a treat to be pampered with such quality. What wonderful hosts. Even with the excellent reviews we read, our stay was still above and beyond our expectations!”
