Nestled in a peaceful valley between the Finger Lakes and Great Lake Ontario and right in the heart of the Erie Canal is the Historical Jackson School House B&B and the Peppermint Cottage Bed and Breakfast. We are a Finger Lakes bed and breakfast that offers Erie Canal lodging at our beautiful bed and breakfast for your Upstate New York Vacation.

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. Judson purchased the school house in 1962 and lived with his wife Isabel until his death in 1980. Judson was known throughout the Finger Lakes for sitting in front of the colonial beehive fireplace and working on his early American Tin Lighting. Isabel was famous for her hooked rugs and wildflower gardens.

In 1982 Mark and Diane De Cracker fell in love with the early American charm and Adirondack feel of the property. In 1998 the Peppermint Cottage B&B was opened for guests to "step back in time" and experience the simple pleasures of life including a warm fire, a romantic candle-light breakfast, relaxing under the stars in a hot tub, or strolling through the Victorian and wildflower gardens of the Peppermint Cottage Bed and Breakfast . In the year 2001 the Jackson School House was remodeled and the Jackson School Bed and Breakfast was opened adjacent to the Peppermint Cottage B &B. The Peppermint Cottage B&B represents three R's: relaxation, rejuvenation, and a romantic get away that you will never forget! This unique bed and breakfast experience is waiting for you in Nature's Pleasant Valley at the Peppermint Cottage Bed and Breakfast between the Great Lake Ontario and the Finger Lakes Wine Country.
