Here’s What Our Guests Say…


Even though we didn’t stay at the mansion we had breakfast there. The food was excellent! We stayed at one of their other properties which was like a small apartment. Jovanna and her husband were so much help with our trip planning. We definitely want to go back.

Ross and Jovanna have a house by the museum that is a delight. Stayed for two nights and slept like I was at home. Was back home for a reunion and got a chance to catch up with both of them for about a half hour during check-in. Will be my destination for all future trips to Smethport.

The Sartwell Mansion was where we had family stay for a Saturday night. The apartment was amazing with a washer and dryer in the laundry room, plush robes, antiques, huge kitchen, a refrigerator stocked with beverages and a basket full of snacks, huge, soft, plush beds and a lovely living area with wifi! There’s a large semi circle drivesay and the mansion is located in a quiet residential area that’s just a block away from the Main Street. I would recommend these amazing accommodations to anyone!

I stayed at the Sheriff Sartwell Executive Suite for three nights. The accommodations were excellent. I had a parking area right outside my door, a full kitchen, bedroom, bathroom with shower, sitting room with a large screen TV and wireless internet. I had no idea what to expect as I had never been to Smethport and I had never stayed at a bed and breakfast. I was pleasantly surprised by both. The town and people were wonderful. The food and service at the Corner Restaurant and the Court of Angels was very good. The hosts, Ross and Jovanna, are exceptionally nice and ensure that you have a comfortable stay. I plan to return with my wife.

We are repeat visitors to the Inn. You will see my other reviews, but wanted to add that this place still continues to really care about the visitors they serve — first time or repeat guests. We did stay in a different room this time (top floor) and really enjoyed the two bedroom suite. The special touches always make it nicer with drinks, comfortable beds, snacks…etc. We had a friend staying in one of the self-service suites (annex to the Mansion) and that was equally as wonderful. I checked it out during the stay, and staying at the annex was very peaceful and near the lake. Great studio apt with a full kitchen and a ton of space. It was likely as enjoyable as the Main Mansion — and you can add breakfast on at the main house if you desire. Hands down the nicest and most interesting B&B in McKean Co — and from most that we have stayed at. Great, great stay.
