Stories o the past about this historic property, possibly a Federal Stagecoach Inn inits early days, have carried through generations. Now the 1795 Acorn Inn delightsguests with its upscale and comortable setting, hospitality, and recognition asthe only bed and breakast in the state o New York to be recognized with the AAAFour Diamond Award or 16 consecutive years. “The history is interesting and ullo are. It was an inn and tavern, carriage and wagon shop, blacksmith shop, evena dance hall,” says Sheryl Mordini, owner. “Bed and breakasts are all unique. Butmy point o dierentiation are the diamonds, they are quite anaccomplishment.”Accomplishments seem to come naturally or Mordini, whosepath to the 1795 Acorn Inn has been interesting. Born in SouthernCaliornia and raised in Hong Kong, Mordini returned to Caliorniato nish college and worked in automotive marketing andadvertising in Los Angeles. Ater two decades o eminent success,she decided to “shake it up,” she says, and do something dierent.“It was sort o my next step in my lie,” Mordini says. “My expertisewas marketing to the affl uent via the Lexus brand and when thisour diamond inn came up or sale it seemed like the perect tor me.”Ater careul reection and growing upwith a German mother who,according to Mordini, taughther to serve through cooking,cleaning, and creating a home,her vision shited to the bed andbreakast industry, a passion shewanted to pursue. Open to livinganywhere, Mordini looked at innsall over the United States beorepurchasing the 1795 Acorn Inn andsettling in the Finger Lakes.“I am going into my ninth yearnow, I was proud to own it thenand I’m even more proud to own it now,” says Mordini. “I’ve poured my heart andsoul into this old house and I eel like it’s exactly where I’m supposed to be.” Butthis beautiully restored house isn’t what guests would nd as traditionally old.Antiquities and modern conveniences bring the past and present together in thishistorical structure.Each o the ve guest rooms contains private baths, many rooms have workingreplaces, individually controlled thermostats and other amenities, rom exquisiteurniture to heated mattress pads, soothing bath products, and Egyptian-cottontowels to cozy reading nooks, cable and Internet.The Barn Suite, renovated into a ull suite complete with kitchen, large bedroom andreplace is located in the 100-year-old barn or guests who preer a more privateretreat.A year-round Jacuzzi sits secluded in the tranquil gardens, whetherspring is blooming or sot snow is alling, the inn’s private settingallows intimate solitude with the backdrop o the beautiul FingerLakes region.“The inn to me has always been comorting and magical almost,” saysAmanda Stresing, Bristol, ve year employee at the inn. “On my rstday o work Sheryl showed me the dierent rooms o the house and I just remember thinking it was one o the nicest places I had ever seen.There is something special about every, single room you walk into.Each room is decorated dierently with its own unique style and colorscheme. I just love every aspect o it.”The hospitality at the 1795 Acorn Inn speaks or itsel. Gourmetcandlelight breakasts lure guests rom their luxurious rooms to theelegant dining room where guests dine togetheron simple but decadent meal creations romrecipes Mordini has gathered rom time spentabroad, immigrant parents, cooking classes, andlocal bounty. “Part o the experience is not onlythe homey eel or the ood, but meeting otherpeople,” says Mordini. “Friendships are ormedhere and the stories are endless. All you haveto do is talk to people and you nd out there issomething in common somewhere.Extremely shy as a child, Mordini says it took her until she was an adult to eel verycomortable with new people, and loves the opportunity to socialize that comesthrough running an inn. “I love spending time and talking with people, especially atbreakast when I can have a cup o coee with them while they eat and chat,” saysMordini. “The majority o my guests are absolutely wonderul. Some come and go,but some come and touch my heart. Everybody leaves with a hug.
