The Genesee Country Inn, built in 1833, is situated on Spring Creek,
a trout stream where guests can enjoy private fishing or relax by
the mill pond. The inn has ten distinctly, comfortably decorated
bedrooms, all with private baths, air-conditioning, telephones, hair
dryers, and TV/VCRs. The king suite and garden rooms have gas
fireplaces and a view of the creek. Guests enjoy the comfort of a
hand stenciled parlor, large dining room with a fireplace, and a
beautiful all season sunroom with gas stove.
During the 1800s, the inn was a plaster mill and later a lumber
mill. Around 1917, this lovely old mill with its 2 ½-foot thick
stone walls was converted to a two-family home. It wasn’t until 1982
that the Garbutt Mill, which was a private residence, became the
Genesee Country Inn.
The inn is close to Rochester, Letchworth State Park, Niagara Falls,
many museums, art galleries, colleges and universities. Also The
Genesee Country Village and Museum, less than a mile from the inn,
is the third largest living museum in the country where visitors can
experience craftsmen demonstrating the trades of life in the 1800s.
