Built in 1846 by William Swales for his daughter Elizabeth as a wedding gift, this historic cobblestone house was once on the Underground Railroad. Schooners sailed into Maxwell Bay to trade wheat for the flour that was made at the gristmill that still stands on the property since 1794. The Inn sits on six acres of peace and tranquil beauty surrounded by a woodland wildlife preserve and apple orchards on the shores of Lake Ontario, along the Seaway Trail.
Tennis court, apple orchards, walking trails to the lake, outdoor grills and picnic tables are on the premises. The property boasts a quarter-mile of prime private shoreline fishing on the famous Maxwell Creek, also great for canoeing and kayaking.

Nestled in a peaceful valley between the Finger Lakes and Lake Ontario, and right in the heart of the Erie Canal district, is the historical Jackson School House B&B and the Peppermint Cottage Bed and Breakfast.
The Jackson School cobblestone house (circa 1831) was started by Cyrus Jackson, a relative of President Andrew Jackson. The historical cobblestone Jackson School served as a school until 1947. On the premises of the Jackson School House is our Finger Lakes B&B, which served as Judson Rice�s Colonial tin lighting workshop. Judson purchased the schoolhouse in 1962 and lived with his wife Isabel until his death in 1980. Judson was known throughout the Finger Lakes for sitting in front of the colonial beehive fireplace and working on his early American tin lighting. Isabel was famous for her hooked rugs and wildflower gardens.
