Bella Ella

Back in January, we decided we needed a weekend get away and hubby Surprised me with a stay at a Bed and Breakfast in upstate New York.

The"Bella Ella" is an 1889 farmhouse located in Canandaigua, New York near the beautiful Finger Lakes. It's nestled in the rolling hills of wine country ( there were so many wineries, I quit counting). 
 We arrived later in the evening and the door was open. There was a chalkboard sign near the door that said "Welcome Jack and Suzy"  (that's us!)

The holiday decorations were still up!

the house is furnished with beautiful antiques...

Our room had a lit fireplace that made it very cozy...

 and a four poster canopy bed!

 a pretty bathroom with a shower ...

 and another room with a jacuzzi tub! Which I made good use of .... lol

In the morning, Jeri our hostess made us a hearty farmhouse breakfast. She raises her own free range chickens and I've never tasted eggs like that! The pancakes were made with Amish flour...very tasty... and organic cantaloupe with mandarin oranges on the side.

Because we visited in the winter we didn't get to enjoy the lake out back..  sigh

Meet Miss Jeri the owner ( and cook, housekeeper and gardener etc.)
If you are anywhere near the Finger Lakes, check it out!
You won't be disappointed.

  3. That looks so cozy and welcoming Suzy. Such a pity you couldn't enjoy the lake but Bella Ella looks like it deserves a second visit.

  4. What a lovely bed and breakfast Suzy. And it is obvious you had a wonderful hostess who greeted you with warmth and hospitality. The four poster bed is gorgeous! I wouldn't mind taking a trip up there one day.
