Our Story

The Oak & Ivy Bed & Breakfast at 600 North George Street in historic Rome, NY welcomes guests and visitors for a unique Bed and Breakfast experience. Housed in an 1871, 20 room Italianate brick manse, The Oak & Ivy features a very European atmosphere as it is furnished with English, French and American antiques and is surrounded by a lush English-style garden burgeoning with perennials, roses, and unusual shrubs and trees. We are available for functions and Afternoon Tea is a specialty of the house!

In addition to the four well appointed guest rooms, The Oak & Ivy offers afternoon teas by reservation for up to 50 people, a venue for engagement and anniversary and birthday parties, baby showers, corporate meetings, as well as artisan/craft fairs, garden parties, "murder mysteries", and many other special events.

Your host, Frederick Rice and three resident felines look forward to welcoming you to The Oak & Ivy. We are open year round. In summer you may enjoy your breakfast on the front porch or otherwise a full breakfast is served in the African Mahogany paneled dining room.

During December, the house is transformed into a Victorian holiday wonderland with eleven decorated trees filling the public rooms with color and light. Holiday teas have become a much anticipated yearly tradition.

Room rates range from $110 to $175 per night plus tax.
