My sister and I have travelled to many countries around the world. We frequently look for B & B's with hopes of having personalized travel experiences. The Chapman House is the kind of Bed & Breakfast experience that models what B & B's are all about!
What makes it so?
-First and foremost - The owners, Julie and Steve, are wonderful hosts who ensure that their guests' needs are met. (We smiled when Steve suggested that he get us a baggie so that we could pack our remaining breakfast treats to enjoy later in the day!)
They are available and present without being intrusive.
-We were welcomed with a clear (large print!) "one-pager" telling us how to access the internet (free) and how to contact Steve and Julie if we needed anything (cell number).
-Breakfasts were excellent, with homemade goodies and wonderful coffee. We were impressed that we were able to select our own time and location.
-The house is believed to be the oldest in Geneva; it is truly gorgeous! The best part is that when Steve and Julie bought the house, it was in need of repair and love...... They have given it both!
We wish them all the best in their business endeavour and hope that their passion continues to extend to the many guests that will pass through their home.
Thanks Julie and Steve.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1800 and located in the center of Geneva's National Register designated Historic District, the Chapman House features spacious rooms, private baths, and a large porch surrounded by beautiful gardens. Guests can enjoy our generous complimentary breakfast in the formal dining room, the porch, or delivered to their room. This landmark is being carefully restored by the owners, guided by extensive scale drawings of the interior and exterior recorded as part of the Federal Government's Historic American Buildings Survey, a project of the WPA in the 1930's. The Chapman house, originally built for the community's first clergy, the Rev. Jedediah Chapman, borders the beautiful campus of Hobart and William Smith Colleges, and is a .5 mile walk from downtown, and over 20 restaurants, taverns and cafes. ... more less
