Welcome to Maxwell Creek Inn!
Historic 1846 Cobblestone home built by William Swales for his daughter Elizabeth as a wedding gift. The home is rumored to have been on the Underground Railroad where slaves came for food and shelter. Small schooners sailed into Maxwell Bay at the bottom of the property to trade wheat for the flour once made at the old gristmill that still stands on the property since 1794. The home remained in the ancestral family for nearly 150 years and is on the National and State Register of Historic Places under the Preston – Gaylord Cobblestone Farmhouse. The cobblestone cottage is one of less than a handful still standing today.
Peaceful and relaxing, this tranquil setting offers a piece of heaven on earth. We strive to make every guest comfortable during their stay and leaving with a desire to return.
Maxwell Creek Inn Bed & Breakfast is nestled on nearly six acres overlooking Maxwell Bay and Lake Ontario. Surrounded by woodland wildlife preserve and apple orchards the Inn is just two miles west of Sodus Point on the Seaway Trail. Guest can enjoy the easy access to the sites and sounds of the city and the rural charm of the country. Often, international guest marvel at their ability to see the stars in the night sky as the Big Dipper appears just outside our back window each night.
Although the Inn has TV and Internet service, why not disconnect from it all and enjoy the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere. Sit a while and listen to the creek babble, the frogs croak, the fish jump and the blue heron come in for a landing as the gentle lake breeze cools your skin. Apple orchards, walking trails to the lake, outdoor gas grill and picnic tables are on the premises for guest use. Don’t forget to bring your fishing pole; as the property boasts a quarter-mile of prime private shoreline fishing on Maxwell Creek; one of the best all natural fishing creeks in New York State. Maxwell Bay and Maxwell Creek is perfect for canoeing and kayaking as well.
