Circa 1905. The lavish, four-course breakfasts served daily at this beautiful turn-of-the-century Edwardian home are unforgettable. Innkeeper and award-winning, gourmet cook Ellie Klein starts off the meal with special fresh juice, which is served in the parlor. From this point, guests are seated at the candlelit dining table to enjoy a series of delectable dishes, such as poached pears, a mouth-watering entree, a light, lemon ice and a rich dessert. And each of the courses is served on a separate pattern of Depression Glass. If the breakfast isn't enough, Ellie and husband, Bill, an electrical engineer, have stocked the individually decorated bathrooms with fluffy towels and bathrobes and guests can soak in inviting clawfoot tubs. Each of the bedchambers boasts antique collectibles and fresh flowers. The inn is located in the prestigious turn-of-the-century Park Avenue Historical and Cultural District. The entire area is an architect's dream. Museums, colleges, Eastman School of Music, Highland Park, restaurants and antique shops are among the many nearby attractions.Publicity and Awards: Democrat & Chronicle, DAKA, Genesee Country Magazine, Seaway Trail Magazine, Oneida News, Travelers News, Country Living, The New York Times Travel Section, New York's Public Broadcasting Station WXXI (Innkeeper is a cooking contest winner).Location: City/Urban, Cultural and Historic District.

“We can't begin to tell you how much we enjoyed staying at Dartmouth House. EVERYTHING was such a treat and we felt so very special. Your attention to detail is amazing! Thank you for sharing your recommendations for restaurants: each and every one was fantastic. Your help with maps and directions was much appreciated also. We'll be back!!”

“The food was fabulous, the company fascinating, and the personal attention beyond comparison. You made me feel at home instantly.”
“The inn is a beautiful home in a historic, very well preserved neighborhood. The innkeepers, are the most delightful couple, and I enjoyed my three day stay very much.
Breakfast is over the top! Allow an hour for breakfast to fully enjoy the multi-course experience. I'd stay here again, just for the morning meal. The kind of meal Angels eat every morning. Good coffee (or tea if you like), juice, and delicious and perfectly sized portions of culinary delights come one after another, served on antique glass and plateware by candle-light. A wonderful way to start your day. Coffee, tea and snacks in the afternoon are a nice bonus too.
The neighborhood is very nice and there are many restaurants and shops within walking distance.
The home is beautiful. Built around 1900, it is well maintained, and comforatable. My room was much larger than I expected, with a sitting area. private bath, large closet, etc.
The hosts, Bill and Ellie are gracious and friendly and I felt like I was part of their family.
I was in Rochester on business, and this was so much nicer than staying at a hotel by the airport or downtown. It was close to work, and it felt like home.”
