Just Back from Long Weekend in Finger Lakes, NY

Jump to last reply

Just a quick note to say "thanks" to all those who helped us with our brief planning.

We just returned from a long weekend (this past) in the Finger Lakes region of NY. We drove from NYC straight to Skeneatles (forgive me if I've not spelled is correctly) and stayed at the Sherwood Inn which is located right on Skeneatles Lake. It was a quaint and cozy inn which was nice given the fact that it started to snow pretty heavily. The rooms where ok but, in my opinion, not worth $150 per night. Dinner is the restaurant was just ok -- the food was not that great. We had lunch at Doug's Fish Fry which was fun (and pretty funny). The fried shrimp was fantastic!! I highly rec'mend that you grab a quick meal here if you are in Skeneatles. It's kind of like a little beach shack with surprisingly good food.

On Sunday we left in the morning for a drive around Seneca Lake and the "wine country". Honestly, I was pretty disappointed with the wines. Most are pretty horrible with the exception, in my opinion, of the Prejean Winery. We tasted quite a few good wines there and actually purchased a bottle.

We were going to stay at an inn or b&b around this area, but really didn't find any that we liked. Most of them seemed pretty run down with the exception of the inn in Geneva. We would have stayed there had there been a room available. Since it was an impromptu weekend, we didn't make any reservations.

We decided to stay the night in Ithaca instead and enjoyed the town. Cute, college town. Lots of kids and bars.

Overall, the area was quite nice but I think it will be some time before we return. Accomodations are very limited (unless you want to stay in a roadside motel) as are good restaurants. Maybe there are more options in Summer but... not enough to make we want to rush back.

Sorry for rambling. Please post if you have any questions.
