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.
