Carriage House Inn: pleasant B&B
The location is nice for the lake view and proximity to attractions in Sodus Point; most were within walking distance. There were the lighthouse and marina and the pier; "downtown" were the small shops and diner. And all around were pleasant people with smiles and waves.
The home looked like it had recently had the trim redone and the shrubbery was in fine shape. The host and hostess were very pleasant and conversational; within five minutes we had heard much of the history of the place and how nice we would find the accomodations.
The room was adequate but not large and had two windows for lighting. The bed was firm (to most people "hard" would be more accurate but I like hard beds) and there were plenty of pillows but you had to ask for them. We kept cool on the hot summer evenings by combination of lake breeze, small air-conditioner and ceiling fan.
The common room where guests could congregate was spacious but very dark. They could have done better with a light color on the walls with complimentary colored carpets; the room was actually all darkish blues. The seating was comfortable but there were none of the typical antiques that you find in other B&Bs that serve as conversation pieces.
The dining area was bright but the breakfast (part of the package price) was a bit on the thin side; luckily I am not much of a morning eater and get by with coffee and toast on most mornings.
The price was about $100 for our one night stay. They have a strict cancellation policy so be sure you get the dates right or you could lose half the payment if they cannot fill your cancelation.
Overall the experience here was good but I am not sure why it got such a high rating on the B&B registry. Probably it is as they say "location, location, location".
