Beautiful, cozy, perfectPosted Aug 1, 2014
I stayed at this B&B for a "staycation." I'm a Rochester native but I needed to get away from my parent's house for a bit. This place could not have been better. The owner/operator was very sweet and accommodating. The fridge and kitchenette were fully stocked, and all the food was free (rather, included). They also provided about 20 dvds for our entertainment. The rooms are spacious, connected, and decorated beautifully. It felt like our own little apartment. If it was an apartment on the market, I would rent it, hands down. It's about a block from the heart of downtown Rochester, so after I unpacked I walked to town and grabbed a quick dinner. I was thoroughly impressed at the amazing accommodations. Especially for the price. I am recommending this to all my friends, anyone visiting the area, or who simply needs a mini vacation. This is the perfect hidden gem.

Nice weekendPosted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: Great value for the price. Quite location. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Clean and comfortable room.
Location: Walking trails along the river. Vibrant small town. Numerous choices of restaurants. Art galleries. Micro brewery.
Stayed at the Rochester Carriage House in the Rochester Suite. Large bedroom with kingsize bed. Skylights let in natural light over bed. Bathroom included a shower for two. Separate living/dining area included an overstocked pantry and fridge. Very quite location a block off Main Street. All downtown Rochester with numerous shops, restaurants and coffee shops within easy walking distance. A great value and a great weekend.

Renovated carriage house needs more bathrooms.Posted Aug 13, 2013
Pros: The carriage house was beautifully renovated.
Cons: The innkeeper needs to improve the bathroom situation and keep the innkeeper's quarters separate from his guests.
Location: This is a great location within walking distance to a vibrant downtown area with many good shops and restaurants. Bike/walking trail is also nearby.
This could have been a nice stay if the innkeeper had opened the second floor bathroom to all three bedrooms. We had to walk down a flight of stairs, past the innkeeper's kitchen and dinner parties with his extended family to get to the only bathroom. We also had to beg for toilet tissue on three occasions! There were also some plumbing problems during our stay.

Getting Better Every Day!Posted Jul 23, 2013
Pros: The kitchen in this house has been completly updated, it is every cooks dream! I would get up each morning, go down staris and just awe at it!!
Cons: Perhaps a bit more of a female touch.
Location: The local town was real nice. Great resturants and shops. Detriot wasn't a very far drive. Cass and White Lake were a short drive as well,
Our stay at this B & B was quite nice. Don and Mark were extremely helpful in every way. The Rochester Carriage House seems to be a work in progress; It will only get better as time goes on I’m sure.The bed rooms are a mix of old/original and new/modern. We stayed in the “Tiffany” room on the original side. It has a huge walk in closet which is especially nice to keep all of you “stuff” out of sight and leaves the living / sleeping area free of clutter. We also liked the fact that this room did have a private bath, with a huge Jacuzzi I might add. This room had all the amenities: including a hair dryer. Even though the house was pretty much fully occupied with guests, we felt like we were the only ones there most of the time. We chose this accommodation because of family very close by. We would recommend this B & B and would stay here again in a heart beat!

Very nice B&B short walk to downtown Rochester.Posted Jul 10, 2013
Pros: A beautiful space. Kind proprietor.
The owner, Don, called me a few days prior to our stay to reassure me that late check in would be fine, and to be certain that he could provide for my strict vegan diet requirements. Very thoughtful!

nice room close to downtownPosted May 30, 2013
The caretaker was not there to greet us. He had a friend that did not know much about the place there to let us in and give us our keys. We were not given the code to the gate so had trouble getting back in. The room was very spacious and clean and it had a nice backyard to sit out in. The most disappointing was the breakfast. There was none. They left eggs in the refrigerator and there was coffee and juice and bagles in the common area. there was no one around so we had to cook our own. Very disappointing. We have stayed at other B & B and they were wonderful and you felt very pampered. For the cost it was a disappointing and we would not return.
