The Establishment:

Located in Rome, NY at the foot of the Adirondack mountains, gateway to the beautiful Mohawk Valley, and just 13 miles from Utica, Angels Nest B&B is a spacious, mello-brick, two-story building constructed in 1950 and dedicated in July, 1951, as the Transfiguration of Our Lord Convent to house the Felicaian nuns of Rome, New York. In its resurrection as a bed and breakfast, Angels Nest features five guest bedrooms while retaining many of its original features, such as the chapel, complete with pews and stained-glass windows.

Eclectic Treasures:

Filled to bursting with eclectic treasures from the life and travels of Innkeeper Mary O. Davis, Angels Nest oozes exotic charm. The middle east theme of the guest living room features an antique brass Mongol. The formal dining room displays oriental prints. Sophie’s Room is decorated with antique Turkish carpets and objects de arts. Each guest bedroom has its own unique motif.

Commercial Travelers, Tourists, or Visitors:

If there is one thing Innkeeper Mary O. Davis understands, it’s the needs of the commercial traveler: For many of her years working for the United States Government overseas, Mary was on the road up to three weeks every month!

“When guests cross my threshold, I’m here to lend a hand,” says Mary. “Nothing ever will be as good as being in your own home, but I want the Convent to be a close second.” Whether it’s an aspirin or a doctor, an iron or a dry cleaner, a stapler, or a copy center, Mary will do her best to help you out.

Exotic Charm and Tranquility - It is more than a bedroom:

Unlike many hotels and motels, guests at The Convent are not just renting a room. Our guests seem to feel comfortable enough to actually use the full facilities! Whether what you’re looking for is a little conversation, some recreation, entertainment, or a little quiet time, we have a place where you’ll find what you want.

You can enjoy:

• The Recreation/Leisure Center which houses TV/VCR, reading materials, music center, a ping pong table, assorted games and cards, computer hook-up, a small conference/work area.

• A visit to the Chapel.

• Exercise on the treadmill, stair climber, stationary bicycle or cross-country machine in the exercise room. For those who are accustomed to the ritual of sauna bathing, one is available, however, the sauna may not be used without a non-liability statement.

• A late-spring through mid-fall stroll on the spacious green lawn, the English style flower garden where comfortable furniture and an open-air tent have been set up on the back lawn under sprawling maple trees–or just basking on the deck.
