Welcome to the totally renovated & preserved “Yorkshire Inn” Bed & Breakfast in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region of Western New York State. Once a stagecoach stop, it now boasts four fully-appointed guest rooms with private baths, two of which are two bedroom family suites with the ability to sleep up to six guests.

The first floor is dedicated to the operation of the business. The spacious main hall (with open staircase) leads to the large, gracious dining room & living room with fireplace. Beautiful wood floors and period details are found throughout. An open gathering room features a dry bar & a place to relax. There is an oversized, eat-in country kitchen with a walk-in pantry. The kitchen was fully remodeled to allow two cooks to operate simultaneously without getting into each other’s way. A beautiful front porch & a large deck which overlooks the private backyard with a fire pit. All for the guests to enjoy.

The second floor is currently dedicated to the owners' living quarters. It has a family room, office, and storage/utility room. It also features a large (16x40) master bedroom suite that could easily be designated a fifth guest suite.

The third floor has two bedrooms, each with private baths, (which were occupied by the family children until they grew up and moved on with their lives) and a common sitting room. At this time the owners enjoy 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths. There is potential for two additional guest bedrooms & baths should the new owners wish to move their living accommodations to the third floor and convert the existing office or family room. New York State code allows transient accommodations (hotels, inns and Bed and Breakfasts) without expensive fire abatement infrastructure, on the first or second floor.

If you have always wanted to run a Bed and Breakfast, this offering is for a fully-furnished TURN-KEY Bed and Breakfast with a track record of success and a great reputation. The entire home has been updated and restored to its colonial glory!

Brief History

The main brick structure of the inn was constructed in approximately 1796 as a two story farm house. The roof was "popped" and a third story added in 1819 to support the growing stage coach traffic along what is now State Route 96. In 1951 the dark red brick addition on the west end was added to supplement The York Inn restaurant, which operated from 1948 until 1988.

In 2000 the Latch family purchased the inn with the intention of turning the building into a Bed and Breakfast. Opening with a single guest room in 2003, The Yorkshire Inn has operated as a successful Bed and Breakfast ever since. It took the family four years to complete the initial remodel, which resulted in two functioning guest rooms, each with private baths. In 2013 the family remodeled the old restaurant banquet room into two additional guest rooms, a large gathering room, and a second utility/laundry room.
