Property information by Wcities, Inc
This 1860s Italian Villa-style inn is located on 30 acres in the heart of western New York's Amish Country. It features three antique furnished guest rooms, along with a two-room loft suite. Each bed is topped with a beautiful quilt, and all rooms have private baths. A new carriage house built on the property features a meeting space on the ground floor and an extensive 3,500-volume library on the second floor. Breakfast, which is included in your stay, is served in either the formal dining area, the breakfast room or in the garden room. Innkeeper Sharon Howe Sweeting also offers themed Victorian teas throughout the year by appointment. - Christine A. Smyczynski
It may take a few minutes to get to know the innkeeper, Sharon, but she is a wonder hostess. When she found out we were celebrating our anniversary and has brought some sparkling cider to enjoy later in the evening she offered us her gorgeous stemware. Really sweet and thoughtful... We appreciated that she doesn't hover around us all the time and gives us freedom to just relax and enjoy her home as we wish. She was never very far when we needed her and always let us know if she was leaving to go somewhere.
We stay in B&Bs a couple of times a year and the Cherry Creek Inn has some very special and unique features. You could never enjoy all of the lovely "sitting spots" in just one visit... The library corner view of the grounds and vistas beyond, the porches, the gazebo, the fire pit, the swings, the house tower. If you enjoy reading you won't ever want to leave the upstairs library. The spa room/hot tub is not open and ready for guests all the time, so if this is important to you make sure you ask if it is in operation before your stay.
Running a B&B is a tough job and Sharon works really hard to make it a wonderful experience for her guests. It was their plan to spend their retirement years together running the Inn, but her husband died suddenly and Sharon has continued that dream on her own. There are rooms full of memories and collections from their world travels. Ask Sharon for a tour and enjoy the ride. Go with an open mind and just relax. Ahhh.
If staying at B&Bs is not your thing, think about the Cherry Creek Inn for events like ladies teas, luncheons, weddings, receptions and more. Our church ladies group has been there a couple of times and they still talk about how much they enjoyed the experience.
Sharon, the innkeeper, recommended a South Dayton restaurant on our first visit. We enjoyed it so much that we have driven the 45 minute trip from our home several times since then to go back ourselves and take friends and family. Wonderful unique foods that will keep you coming back for more too. Large portions, warm environment, friendly staff and reasonable prices. You will want to make dinner reservations and not chance a walk-in especially on weekends. It's a treasure of a place and folks know it.
My wife and I along with two other couples spent 3 nights at the Cherry Creek Inn. Having stayed at other B&B's, we thought we knew what to expect but what we found was an exceptional place to stay and have a great time.
The Innkeeper, Sharon, was very helpful and made sure we all felt welcome and knew where everything was in the main house, the carriage house, the exercise room and the hot tub area. To say we were a bit overwhelmed would be an understatement. All of these amenities were available to us as well as use of the full kitchen in the carriage house.
The carriage house quickly became a focal point for our group. With a full kitchen and mini "Banquet Facility" downstairs and a beautiful and spacious Game Area, Library and Sitting Room upstairs, we could lounge, read, listen to music, surf the Internet (oh yeah, wireless Internet!) and play board and card games to our heart's content. Our goal was a few days of relaxation and this gave us a great place to do just that while we were there.
In the main house, we enjoyed the parlor with a fireplace (prepped and ready to go every evening by Sharon) full of comfy couches, love seats and enough memorabilia to look at for hours.
My wife and I stayed in the Albert Room with our friends in the remaining Victoria and Elizabeth Rooms. We didn't have anyone in the loft but snuck a quick look. 2 nice rooms and a small shared sitting area with a staircase to the entryway. We all found our rooms quite comfortable and warm despite the mini blizzard we had the second night. Given that the house dated to 1860, I was amazed how draft free our room was.
We also went out and hit the Chautauqua Wine Trail with our last stop being Woodbury Vineyards. What a treat as we happened to be there when both vintners were there! They shared some of their latest Chardonnay right out of the barrel and Riesling both before and after processing. The nominal $3.00 tasting fee was nothing compared to the amount of fun and education we received. Best of all, only 10 minutes from the Inn!
We also took a quick trip to Jamestown and visited the Southerntier Brewery. We got there too late to take the 1:00 tour so we "drowned" our sorrow with a couple of good glasses of beer. (They have wine as well!)
We all plan to return and make sure that we enjoy the Inn many times in the future.
I read the other review posted. All three of our couples (who all have kids) agreed that the Inn would be great place for families but not for very, very young children. A 150 year old home full of memorabilia, antiques and interesting spaces just doesn't suit toddlers. We're positive school aged children would be fine and have a great time down in the basement playing games in the pub and hanging out in the tower. Family friendly for sure, just not for little kids.
Great breakfasts served in the kitchen with plenty of food, juice and coffee. A small refrigerator stocked with water and soda was in the dining room for any quick drinks you might want.
Be sure to check this place out and prepare to be amazed at all that is there and in the area.
You reach the loft by entering the front door and are led up steep stairs lacking handrails. The top of the stairs are enclosed with rough pieces of particle board. The entire railing at the top of the stairs is no more than 2 and 1/2 to 3 feet high and the rails are no thicker than an inch. There is a small TV table, on which there is a pile of 10 to 20 1-inch cable staples. Underneath this table is a pile of cables, some not connected to anything. Next to this is a 3 foot high ground-level window with nothing to prevent something unfortunate from occurring. The bedroom windows were of the same nature. On the other end of the living room is a bedside table with a mini-fridge on top of it. On this are 2 tea cups, an electric tea pot and a spoon. All these items and the fridge are dirty from use and lack of cleaning. All flat surfaces in the bedrooms have dust and it didn’t seem like anyone had vacuumed recently. The bathroom has a sign near the mirror which says the hot water is extremely hot and was very much so. The medicine cabinet has opened lotions, shampoos and conditioners and a pile of used soaps. The door has old-fashioned lock hardware but because it is doesn't work, a screw from the jam side equipment is removed to lock and unlock the door. The heat on the first night didn’t work so it was 58 degrees. Our host made a point of saying that her insurance company was unhappy with children staying in the loft. She also makes a point of saying the people next door are visiting their dying child so keep it down. I told her we’d do our best, considering we’d be out most of the day and the kids (age 1 & 3) go to bed quite, shouldn’t be an issue. Then she attempted to leave without further comment. My wife asked if there was anything else we needed to know, to which she replied “like what?” “I guess nothing” was all we could respond and off she went. Realizing we didn’t have a key, I went down to get one before we went out for dinner. Her response to my request for a key was “for what?” My only response was to say “to lock the door.” She told me it was her only key (key point for later) and I needed to 'leave it on the table in the front foyer.' She asks me what/when we wanted breakfast and I say pancakes are fine for Saturday and I’d check with my wife about Sunday, but both days around 8:30. Pancakes are what we got on Saturday with little nuggets of sausage and canned fruit in a bowl. At this point she makes mention of the noise from the children. I tell her we are doing our best but they are in fact children, and are prone to exclamations of glee/sorrow. I tell her that pancakes would be fine for Sunday morning and she informs me that since the house is full, breakfast would be ala carte (Fine, but then why ask?) After our day's outings we came back and I took my youngest down with me to ask for a restaurant recommendation. We waited in the front foyer while she was upstairs giving another guest similar information. She walked by us once to get something from her office and went back to finish with the other guest. On her return trip she went a different direction, went in her office/kitchen area, came and closed the door from the foyer to the kitchen area, and without a word, disappeared into the back of the house! On Sunday morning, I’m still in bed because my wife offered to tend to the kids so I can sleep more. I hear my youngest crying as she's just waiting for her bottle. It’s about 6:45 in the morning and I can hear my wife and the innkeeper talking. My wife comes in and tells me that the Innkeeper used a key (apparently there was more than one ) to come into the loft to complain the baby was being loud and that quite hours were from 11 to 7! This is a point that should have been made on the 1st day – although seriously breaking in to complain about crying?! She did refund us a night's stay, "because no one was happy," Please do not stay here with your children-there are better B&Bs in the area.
