Now Get Ready to Charge Your Batteries At The Ellwanger Estate B&B.

The Ellwanger Estate Bed and Breakfast teams with Tesla Motors to become the area’s first lodging host to offer a Tesla Destination Charger for overnight guests. Tesla Destination Charging is now offered as a new amenity for overnight guests. This installation makes The Ellwanger Estate a new hot spot on the national electric vehicle map.

We are a very green B&B, devoted to energy efficiency, conservation, reuse, recycling and a hypoallergenic guest environment. Tesla’s focus on pure electric technology seems a perfect fit. We offer a full complimentary charge to our Tesla overnight guests. Just enter “TESLA” under special accommodations, when you reserve your room online to let us know you would like to plug-in.

This is an added amenity for our Tesla and Electric Vehicle guests, but you must let us know in advance to reserve parking for your charge. The Ellwanger Estate B&B is proud to offer just one more example of all our exceptional amenities, making this the ideal home-away for both leisure and business travelers.

The Ellwanger Estate Bed and Breakfast serves an elegant gourmet breakfast each morning between 8:30 and 10 a.m. A continental breakfast is provided for our corporate guest and early departures. Steaming hot coffee and tea is always available. Picture this: White tablecloths are illuminated by soft candlelight as you are presented an award winning, thoughtful breakfast dish, such as french toast bread pudding with spiced pears or spicy sausage vegetable quiche. We are happy to serve an earlier breakfast with prior notice. Let us know about your own dietary requirements, and we will happily create a breakfast you can enjoy! Should you wish to invite a guest to breakfast, we will simple add $15 to your bill. We have a variety of recipes that include some old favorites, as well as some more creative dishes. When possible, our ingredients are fresh and locally produced, from the locally roasted coffee to the farm fresh eggs purchased at the local farmers market. Do not be surprised if you awaken early and see us returning from the Farmers Market (every Saturday) with fresh eggs, fruit, and just-picked organic vegetables for your enjoyment! The innkeepers at the Ellwanger Estate Bed and Breakfast are pleased to accommodate the dietary needs of all guests. If you have a special need, notify us at the time of your reservation.

Policies Go To Top
Check In Policy:
Our check-in times are between 2:00pm and 6:00pm. If you arrive earlier than 2:00 pm and your room is ready we will happily check you in. If your room is not ready, you can leave your car in the parking lot, go and have lunch and check in after 2:00 pm. If you are arriving after 6:00 pm, please give us a courtesy call to advise us of your arrival time and arrange for a late check-in procedure (earlier or later arrivals by prior arrangements). We will gladly work with you. Please GPS this location as it is more like a secret garden and while it is well marked (“Ellwanger Estate” sign 16 ft high, “625” on 6 ft stone wall and grass level), it is also difficult to find especially after sunset.
Check Out Policy:
Checkout for guests and their cars is at 11:00 am.
Cancellation Policy:
Cancellation 7 days prior to your confirmed reservation will receive a full refund minus a $35 service fee. Cancellation less than 7 days from your confirmed reservation will be subjected to a one night charge and a $35 service fee. Regretfully, there is no refund for early departures, shortened stays, or no shows. If rooms are not claimed by 7 pm on the day of scheduled arrival, guest will be responsible for the full amount (plus a service fee) to be charged to guests account. Cancellation less than 30 days prior to a stay over major holiday periods or any other special event period ( to include all Federal holidays, Lilac fest, peony weekend, Jazz fest, all graduations, L/PGA, and Meloria weekend) are NON REFUNDABLE. We have limited rooms available and actively plan for your arrival, so if you need to cancel this is your contribution to the historic building fund. Thank you for your understanding. On the rare occasion should winter travel be interrupted due to poor weather conditions, the Inn will honor cancellations under the following industry guidelines: The Rochester International Airport and/or The NYS Thruway is closed due to poor travel conditions. These cancellations will be given the opportunity to rebook on a future date with no penalties to the guest. Please note: Reservations are not considered canceled without receiving a cancellation number. Please contact the Inn directly to receive this number for your records.
