AND THE WORLD COMES IN! That is our motto! We strongly believe that welcoming people from around the world is the best gift we can give and receive! Everyone has a story, comes from somewhere, experiences great moments in their lives, and then walks through our door to shares it with us at The Rose Petal Inn. Our guests make new friends, bring lifelong friends, or simply come to enjoy one another. We have met amazing people, made great friends and so appreciate those who keep coming back, like Jonathan and Jessica. Great moments, created wonderful memories and loved giving them the experience they were looking for. Gotta love it.
Geneva, NY really gets pretty in the Spring! Flowers are everywhere, making a walk a true pleasure for the eyes and senses. Every color from yellow to purple, pink to red is in everyone's front lawn. Trees are in bloom and starting to flower, and walking by Seneca Lake, one can imagine a picnic on the vibrantly green grass ... Come and see what we are talking about, as even The Rose Petal Inn is enjoying is fair share of flowers, green grass and roses starting to come back to life! See you soon!
Every season brings its own activities, but we believe that with Spring in Upstate Central New York, there is something for everyone! We have had the pleasure, here at The Rose Petal Inn, to welcome guests from around the world, and specifically cyclists from around the world! Since we are located in Geneva, NY, which is right on the shores of Seneca Lake, there are some amazing cycling trails, which at times can make it hard to choose from. Starting right at our doorstep, the trail will bring down to Seneca Lake in mere minutes, and then go around it for an absolutely gorgeous ride, with several trails, and spectacular views! Most of our guests who love to cycle take about 3 days to truly enjoy the area. One of those days is usually dedicated to explore Geneva itself, one of the oldest cities here, with historical landmarks, amazing homes, and a countryside that takes our breath away. We look forward to welcoming you!
The Finger Lakes of Central Upstate New York are home to many pretty small towns. In our humble opinion, here at The Rose Petal Inn, we think that Geneva, NY is the prettiest! One would ask why and we would answer that its history, its originality, and its many historical buildings definitely contribute to its charm. We also think that its vibrant downtown, its many delicious restaurants and its eclectic shops make it a great place to walk around. The best part about Geneva, NY is the people who live here and welcome our visitors with a smile, treating them as if they were the most important in the world. Nothing beats that! Come experience The Rose Petal Inn Bed & Breakfast, but mostly, come experience what we are all about here in Geneva, NY. See you soon! Andrew & Rossana
Spring! Thoughts of blooms, green grass, warmer weather, chirping birds ... sitting on the front porch of The Rose Petal Inn Bed & Breakfast, watching time go by, enjoying a glass of wine from one of our wonderful wineries here on Seneca Lake ... thinking about making a decision as to where you would like to go out for dinner here in Geneva, NY. Maybe indulge in a Wine Tour with Big D's Wine Tours, or relax while walking along the shores of Seneca Lake. Whatever your fancy, nothing is in a hurry, everything is on your time. Your memories. Your experience.
A vacation today is not a vacation as it used to be! Many, many years ago, one would take two weeks off at a time, go to the same place, experience the same things, eat at the same restaurants, and still create the memories one was looking for!
What has changed? How we do vacation! A vacation can be as short as two to three days, without having to go too far, but one that will provide you with an experience that is so different from their everyday life. What about a destination? Why not pick the Finger Lakes of Upstate Central New York! At The Rose Petal Inn Bed & Breakfast, in Geneva, NY, we have thought long and hard as to what type of B&B we wanted to be. We decided that offering a one of a kind food experience would appeal to all the foodies, far and wide. Think about what you usually experience in a regular week, including how you approach eating, what you order at your favorite restaurant. Now, imagine looking at a menu, yes, a menu, at breakfast at The Rose Petal Inn Bed& Breakfast. One with choices, about 6 to 8 choices. Not a buffet. Not a single choice. Several choices.
Will it become the experience you are looking for? It will help create the experience you are seeking, and because your sense of taste is immensely important if you are a Foodie, then you will have enhanced that experience, that moment, tenfold!
Are we trying to convince you to choose our Bed & Breakfast for a place to stay? Absolutely. Are we trying to tell you that you will experience something completely different if you stay with us? You bet!
You can reach us at (315) 759-0433 and you can make your reservation at www.therosepetalinn.com. We look forward to welcoming you AND pampering you!
