On the site of the first grist mill built in Erie County (1803), you will find intimate seclusion and gentle harmony at the Asa Ransom House Country Inn. Guests at our Clarence, New York bed and breakfast are romanced in the winter by glowing fireplaces in most rooms and our snow-covered grounds. During the spring, our spacious grounds are full of herbs and flowers which can be enjoyed from our porches and balconies.
Voted #1 B&B in "Best of Buffalo" News survey. Experience world-class cuisine and a full country breakfast with delicious regional accents.

Clarence is known throughout the east for its antiques and treasures. We are also only 28 miles from Niagara Falls.
