There are many reasons to plan a getaway to upstate New York. One of them is Finger Lakes, which is full of fun and fascinating attractions for vacationers who want to get the most out of their experience.

Belhurst Castle

Rather than staying in a typical hotel, a getaway to upstate New York calls for a stay at the Belhurst Castle. This hotel dates back to the 1800s, and each guest room features decor from that period. It also boasts a winery that is considered among New York’s best. Daily tours are offered, and each includes wine tastings. The hotel also boasts an on-site spa and upscale restaurants.

La Tourelle

Others may instead choose to stay at La Tourelle, a bistro, hotel, and spa. Its Fireplace King Rooms boasts a gas fireplace and a balcony. Other accommodation types include a fireplace and a whirlpool tub. For families, the ideal accommodations are the Yellow Barne Suites, each of which has a two-story living room, three bedrooms, and a mini kitchen.

Geneva on the Lake

Another option in Finger Lakes is Geneva on the Lake. This villa boasts English styled gardens and spans 10 acres of land, and dates back to 1914. Accommodations include a kitchen, living room, dining room, and a full bathroom. Many suites offer a view of Seneca Lake and boast both a fireplace and an outdoor patio.

The Inns of Aurora

Those who want more choices often stay at The Inns of Aurora, which includes two other properties; the Rowland House and the E.B. Morgan House. In each room are a gas burning fireplace, antiques, and original works of art. The property boasts a lakeside restaurant and many fun activities. During the summer months, guests may access private swimming and boating docks. Guests can borrow bicycles, kayaks, or canoes.

Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel

To explore the surrounding area, one of the most convenient getaways is the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel. Nearby attractions include the Keuka Wine Trails, Seneca Lake, and Cayuga. After exploring them, many guests come back to the hotel’s specialty suites; Commodore and Admiral. These suites boast a patio and wine bar, along with a whirlpool tub.

Cayuga Lake Inn

Another close-by option is the Cayuga Lake Inn. This is one of the most private hotels in Finger Lakes but is located along the The Cayuga Wine / Ithaca Art Trail and is only a few minutes from Ithaca.
