“We were officially the first B&B guests of The Edward Harris House. We travel often to the area, and have stayed at the EHH everytime we are in town. The Inn is beautiful, completely redone and redecorated with guests comfort always in mind. The food is incredible, and the owners are personable and engaging. We have recommended it many times.”
— Jim & Ellen


“My husband and I have stayed in dozens of B&B's throughout Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia and New York, but there's never a question where we'd like to go when we have the opportunity to choose our destination. It's Rochester, New York simply because of the Edward Harris House and the warm ambiance created so beautifully by Susan and Manny Alvarez. We always feel like most welcomed guests in their HOME. They're available to spend time with us, yet they value our privacy as well, and afford us the opportunity for alone time when we need it. Susan was born to host a B&B and I'm so glad we stumbled upon it! Now that gas prices have fallen, we'll be making our way to Rochester sometime soon and can't wait to settle in to our "home away from home."”
