  • 4 br family lakefront cottage on LIme Like Near Ellicottville NY

    "Lovely setting on the water. Great deck and seating for the family. Cottage was very clean and nicely decorated in a lighthouse motif. Host was excellent in providing information about the cottage. Everything necessary for the stay (bedding, towels, kitchen fundamentals) was provided. Cozy, enjoyable and lovely setting. The description was accurate and the photos reflected the cottage's appearance. I would recommend this property to a friend or relative. In terms of near by activities, we enjoyed hiking at Alleghany State Park and Letchworth State Park. The fall colors were beautiful. The Outlet Mall and Walden Galleria Mall were within a 40 minute drive."

  • Fantastic Find!

    "If you're looking for peace and quiet, a beautiful view from a private deck and a two minute walk to the sunsets on the bay beach, this is the place. It's small, but very cozy and clean and was exactly what we were looking for for two couples who wanted to see the sights, but also relax. It was fully stocked, the owners were a pleasure to deal with and we are already looking forward to a return trip. This is a true gem!"

  • Private beach paradise!

    "We rented the property for the last two weeks of August 2014. It seemed like the pine trees were whispering a welcome to us as we drove down the driveway, past the tennis court to our rented beach paradise! The bedrooms were lovely, comfortable and fully appointed. The owner, Shelby, obviously tended to every detail toward making our stay a happy one! There were plush towels for bath and pool, sitting areas upstairs and down, comfortable beds and upstairs the sitting area was well thought out and ultra comfy! Kids of all ages (mine are all grown) love this place -- there is plenty to do from swimming, tennis, beach going, TV (movies included), and Wii games galore. We enjoyed sitting poolside books in hand, lulled by the sound of waves hitting the beach and the trees stirring in the breeze. The views were stunning -- ocean from the back of the house and bay from the front. It couldn't get any better than this!! The garden beside the pool is beautifully planted along with the potted plants and hanging blooms along the upper and lower deck including an herb garden ready for the picking! From a cook's point of view (mine!) the kitchen was the best room in the house! It had a GLORIOUS view of the ocean and it was fully appointed with Le Creuset pans and a complete china set and every gadget a cook might need! The owner clearly loves this house and as guests, we did too! She was responsive to our every request or question and provided us with special extras we were not expecting! Our group of 5 and two golden retrievers would very, very happily return next summer!!"

  • Meets my needs perfectly

    "The studio is a great place to call home whether you're staying for a few days or a few weeks. Brigette and Cyril are great hosts, Cobble Hill is a great area--plenty to do, see, places to eat, etc.--without the hustle and crowds of the city. About a 10-minute walk to Brooklyn Bridge Park (great for runners and those who love amazing views) and to the subway (the F-train, one of the best lines). It was my second time staying there and will not be my last!"

New York Travel Tips

New York is a hub of culture, history, diversity and excitement.

New York City is made up of five boroughs: Manhattan, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx, while the rest of the upstate region is made up of different cities, town and suburbs. Manhattan and Staten Island are islands off the state’s mainland and accessed through tunnels, bridges and ferries.

Getting around New York is a breeze with an intricate yet user-friendly public transit system as well as the famous yellow taxis. In the city centers, walking is a great way to move around while still experiencing the sights and sounds of the different areas. However, car rentals may be need for those who exploring attractions upstate in areas like the Finger Lakes.

Things to do in New York

Broadway: A trip into Manhattan isn’t complete without taking in a show on the “Great White Way.” Considered the hub of theater in the U.S., Broadway is home to some of the best musical and acting productions in the world.

Cooperstown: Baseball fans won’t want to miss the opportunity to visit Cooperstown, which is not too far from Albany. This area is recognized as the shrine of baseball, and with its small-town charm and stellar views of the countryside, it’s definitely worth the visit. It’s the home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum as well as the Fenimore Art Museum and the Glimmerglass Opera. After a pickup baseball game, check out the local cultural attractions for a full day of fun.

Staten Island Ferry: Traveling between Manhattan and Staten Island best done aboard the famous Staten Island ferries. With service between St. George and Whitehall Street, it not only transports people between boroughs, but also delivers stunning views of the Manhattan skyline, New York Harbor, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Along your journey, you can explore the unique attractions each borough has to offer.

Ellis Island: One of the most famous historical sites associated with freedom is New York’s Ellis Island. Situated in Upper New York Bay, Ellis Island was the gateway for millions of immigrants coming to America during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The island is also home the the Statue of Liberty, which was usually the first thing immigrants saw when they came off of the boats. Ellis Island houses a museum of immigration where visitors can learn all about the island’s history and even trace their own ancestral roots.

Central Park: No trip to the Big Apple is complete without a walk through Central Park. This public space opened in 1857 and is situated in the center of this borough. The park is the perfect location for a relaxing stroll or a lovely lunchtime picnic. Enjoy a friendly game of frisbee or hop in the saddle and take a horseback ride through the North Woods - you might actually forget you are in the country's biggest metropolis! Providing stunning visuals in all four seasons, Central Park is the perfect place to experience some greenery and nature in the middle of concrete and skyscrapers.

Niagara Falls: Niagara Falls is best seen from the Maid of the Mist, a boat cruise ferrying visitors right alongside the rapids. You can also experience the falls from Prospect Park Point walkways. It’s quite a sight to witness this majestic natural attraction in person. After a visit to the falls themselves, you can spend some time exploring the rest of Niagara Falls State Park, hiking around trails or taking a trolley ride and experiencing a guided tour to learn all about the park.

Duckwalk Vineyards: New York is full of successful wineries, such as Duckwalk Vineyards. With two locations in Southampton and Long Island, this winery has truly made its place. On the North Fork of Long Island, 30 acres of sauvignon grapevines grow, waiting for harvest. It’s also the perfect location for a wine tasting while visiting the wine trail.

Shopping and Dining in New York

Macy’s: Manhattan is home to the famous Macy’s flagship store, which opened in 1924. It became the world’s largest department store. Head to the corner of 34th Street and Herald Square to do some shopping here and feel a part of history.

Woodbury Common: With more than 220 stores, Woodbury Common is one of the largest outlet shopping centers in the world and certainly worth a trip. With such an array of shops, you’re sure to find anything you’re looking for here.

Jack’s Oyster House: For almost 100 years, this family-owned restaurant has been serving up hungry patrons giant porterhouse steaks and fresh seafood dishes with a French twist. With elegant decor and an interesting history, this is one eatery in Albany you can't miss.

Sardi’s: Before taking in a show, eat a Sardi’s, an eatery considered the toast of Broadway. Located in the heart of the Theater District, Sardi’s is the birthplace of the Tony Aways, and caricatures of celebrities adorn the wall.

Chinatown: For an authentic Chinese meal, head to New York’s Chinatown. Boasting the largest influence of Chinese heritage in the western hemisphere, this is the place to get handmade noodles and dim sum. Explore the different shops and attractions in Chinatown to really feel immersed in this culture.
