Relax, refresh, renew! Enjoy our 1896 urban boutique inn in the heart of the Arts and Cultural District of Rochester, New York. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the inn has been lovingly restored using the original architects plans from the archives of the University of Rochester. Enjoy the beautiful original leaded glass, hand carved woodwork, artwork and antiques throughout.  Each guest room has been individually designed to be as individual as the guests that choose them, with all the fine amenities to meet guests expectations. The Edward Harris House B&B Inn has been designated one of the 10 Most Romantic Inns of North America, and an "Inn of Distinction" by Tripadvisor. 

Whether traveling for business or pleasure, the inn is conveniently located just a few blocks off I-490 for easy access to all area businesses, colleges and universities or just an easy on and off if you are just passing through.  However, before you do - Rochester has alot to offer! Park your car and walk (one block) to area cafes, restaurants, shops, services, museums and galleries -  allowing for easy access to what you need, when you need it.

Rochester is a community with strong, deep roots in the Arts. Enjoy our many concerts, theater productions, ballet, festivals and art shows throughout the year. Each June we enjoy The International Jazz Festival which brings in people from around the world. We are in the heart of it all, yet tucked into a quiet city street. Enjoy complimentary WiFi throughout the inn and off street parking. Looking for a different experience? Ask us about our cottages, both sitting at waterside. Daytripping? Just a quick drive to the Fingerlakes to enjoy  a day of wine tours, biking, beautiful beaches and almost any watersport you can think of.
