Finger Lakes Vacation Rentals

The Finger Lakes area of Upstate New York is an exciting destination where the great outdoors takes center stage and visitors can get their feet wet in any of the stunning, picturesque lakes. For a truly memorable stay along the banks of Seneca Lake, Owasco Lake, or any of the other nine Finger Lakes, let a waterfront vacation rental be your jumping off point for a getaway full of adventures.

As the deepest and second longest of the Finger Lakes, Seneca Lake offers a diverse selection of outdoor activities on its shimmering waters, including sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, and most famously fishing. In addition to the attractions on the water, visitors of Lake Seneca vacation rentals can explore the lakefront towns of Geneva and Watkins Glen, home of the must-see Watkins Glen State Park, and journey around the 24 wineries of the Seneca Lake Wine Trail.

For a small town atmosphere coupled with big water excitement, head to Canandaigua Lake to explore the fourth largest of the Finger Lakes. While Canandaigua Lake vacation rentals are convenient to many water-filled excursions, the Sonnenberg Mansion & Gardens is an ideal resting point away from the glistening shores. Other popular nearby attractions include the Canandaigua Wine Trail, the Ganondagan State Historic Site, and the pleasant town of Clifton Springs.

The longest of the Finger Lakes, guests of Cayuga Lake vacation rentals can enjoy endless recreational excitement at the Robert H. Treman State Park, located on the south end of the lake. Nine miles of hiking trails, twelve waterfalls, and plenty of swimming opportunities are offered here, while the Cayuga Lake State Park features a boat launch, flat beaches, and excellent inshore and offshore fishing. Since Cayuga Lake is located near many historical points, a cruise along the Cayuga-Seneca Canal, which connects the Erie Canal to the Finger Lakes region, and a stop at nearby Seneca Falls, home of the Women’s Suffrage Movement, is always worthwhile.

As one of the cleanest lakes on the continent, Skaneateles Lake is perfect for a relaxing swim in its crystal clear waters or any other waterfront activity you can imagine. While the breathtaking beauty of the lake is certainly mesmerizing, the town is also brimming with excitement as it hosts festivals throughout the year and offers numerous antique shops, boutiques, and fine restaurants. Visitors of Skaneateles Lake vacation rentals will not want to miss the free concerts in Cliff Park throughout the summer and the Skaneateles Festival in August and September.

Offering a picturesque and serene setting, guests of Owasco Lake vacation rentals can enjoy a variety of recreational pursuits at Emerson Park, located in Auburn on the north end of the lake. Theater and concert performances are featured in the park along with swimming, boating, fishing, and picnicking, while the nearby Cayuga Museum of History & Art and the Ward W. O'Hara Agricultural Museum offer a thought-inducing break from the waterfront.

Other popular accommodations in the Finger Lakes area include Greenwood vacation rentals and Keuka Lake vacation rentals.
