The Finger Lakes Hotels

Belhurst Castle


  • Historic buildings
  • Lovely grounds


  • Restaurants disappointing
  • Rooms could use maintenance

Fodor's Review

The 1889 castle, complete with tower, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. You can stay in the original stone structure, but better rooms are found in the charming Georgian Revival mansion or in the modern Vinifera Inn, which has less personality but king-size beds, gas fireplaces, and two-person showers. The formal restaurant and lounge have lake views. Belhurst has its own winery, and a wine-tasting room and gift shop are on-site.

Belhurst Castle Review

We stayed at the Vinifera Inn, Reserve Room, at the Belhurst. A large, comfortable, cozy, romantic room with Lakeview, 2 person jazzusi, bathrobes and houseshoes, 2person shower with 2 shower heads, a fireplace, refrig and 12 cup coffeepot. The bath was furnished with all the basic sundries including toothbrushes and toothpaste. There is a loveseat, tv and desk. The first hotel I have been to that gives fullsize bath bars. The lobby provides, coffee,

2-3 juices and oatmeal bars every morning. The restaurants have lake views and provide good, not great meals. There is a wine tasting room, gift shop and spa. I think some of the questionable reviews this hotel gets is from people who stay in the original Belhurst which is older and shows wear.
