WINE OR BEER TOURS
The Finger Lakes are famous for great wine with nearly 200 wineries. It is also becoming a destination for beer connoisseurs with around 40 craft breweries and brewpubs. One of the best ways to sample what the region has to offer is to let experts do the driving, picking you up and dropping you off at the inn door.
We offer choices to our guests with either planned routes, or do-it-yourself itineraries:
- Crush on Canandaigua – Wine & Beer Tours – Book directly with us, or we can put you in touch with Russell to set up your guided tour of wineries, breweries, and distilleries. You’ll have an experienced guide that can provide some background on the region between stops. All tasting fees are included. Some tours include lunch or dinner.
- Design your own route – Weʼll make arrangements for a limousine to pick you up at the inn following breakfast. We can offer recommendations on stops based on your tastes and our experience. (We ʻforceʼ ourselves to survey area offerings when weʼre not too busy – anything for our guests! :)
Call for pricing. Example: a two night stay in a queen room with an all-day wine tour for two with Crush is $699, all inclusive of fees and taxes.
CHEESE & FRUIT PLATE
Need a snack between the wine & beer trails, and antiquing? Relax in your room, or any of our indoor or outdoor spots with a colorful array of NY cheeses, fresh fruit (local too whenever possible), and crackers. Let us know what you like, or let us surprise you with a variety of flavors. ($20 for two)
TEA FOR TWO (OR MORE)
Enjoy afternoon or evening tea on our deck, on the patio, or in the inn. A great way to unwind after a day exploring the scenic Finger Lakes. We’ll add homemade treats, sweet or savory, or a combination. Just let us know what you’d like when booking your stay, or in advance of your arrival. ($10 per person)
MASSAGE – IN-ROOM (OLIVER PHELPS SUITE ONLY) OR AT A LOCAL SPA
Add a relaxing massage for one or two to your stay. Tailor the time and style to suit your taste; prices vary accordingly. Advanced reservations required (min. two weeks).
Celebrating a special occasion with an even more special partner? We’ll be happy to have an arrangement from one of our local florists ready in the room for your arrival. (Price varies; please call or add a note when booking on-line)
CANANDAIGUA GOURMET BASKET
On a ‘foodie’ foray into one of America’s hottest gourmet locales? Need a souvenir for the poor souls back home that didn’t get to come along? We can help by providing a basket of tasty treats from a variety of local producers, many of whose products we use in our breakfasts. (Can tailor for traveling and preservation limitations; $20)
Want to tour the beautiful Finger Lakes on two wheels? The B&B at Oliver Phelps makes a great home base for a variety of rides. We offer loop routes on area roads, or a choice of canal/rail-trails for easier riding. For our guests we provide maps and turn-by-turn directions (cue sheets). We highlight opportunities for historical/cultural sites, wineries/breweries, or just lovely scenery. Covered bike parking is also available at the inn. There is no extra charge for this ʻpackageʼ. Just let us know your interest in biking when making the reservation and weʼll send you our questionnaire to help tailor our recommendations.
Note: There is a bicycle shop within a mile of the inn that rents bicycles by the hour, day or week.
