Essential info

Key facts about your summer rental stay in the Finger Lakes

The Finger Lakes region is a well-traveled area with a welcoming atmosphere and low crime. The natural environment presents some potential hazards for travelers, however, especially if engaging in activities in unfamiliar areas, so stay alert to changing terrain. During hunting season, it’s important to be aware of the parks, forests, and nature preserves that allow hunting and trapping and be sure to wear bright colors to alert hunters and aid rescue personnel. If you’re traveling with a dog, it’s encouraged to dress it in bright colors and use a leash in all outdoor areas to alert hunters and keep it safe from wild predators. Though far from the isolated wilderness, it’s best to stay alert near getaway cabins as well, since wildlife can venture into more populated areas.
