Built in 1846 by William Swales for his daughter Elizabeth as a wedding gift, this historic cobblestone house was once on the Underground Railroad. Schooners sailed into Maxwell Bay to trade wheat for the flour that was made at the gristmill that still stands on the property since 1794. The Inn sits on six acres of peace and tranquil beauty surrounded by a woodland wildlife preserve and apple orchards on the shores of Lake Ontario, along the Seaway Trail.

Nestled in a peaceful valley between the Finger Lakes and Lake Ontario, and right in the heart of the Erie Canal district, is the historical Jackson School House B&B and the Peppermint Cottage Bed and Breakfast. The Jackson School cobblestone house (circa 1831) was started by Cyrus Jackson, a relative of President Andrew Jackson. The historical cobblestone Jackson School served as a school until 1947. On the premises of the Jackson School House is our Finger Lakes B&B, which served as Judson Rice’s Colonial tin lighting workshop.
