Enjoy cabin rentals in Geneva

Located on the northern end of Seneca Lake, Geneva is one of the best places for Finger Lakes cabin rentals. Seneca Lake State Park, a vast lakeside recreation area with playgrounds for kids, is one of the many places where you can enjoy being so close to the water. In addition to fun water sports and beach days on the lake, one of the biggest draws of Geneva is winemaking. The area's wineries and vineyards are part of the hundreds of wineries in the Finger Lakes region, so Geneva is an ideal spot for a wine retreat with trails, vineyard tours, and tasting events.

Things to do

From marvelous mansions to movie theaters

In the 19th century, Geneva was New York State's major commercial hub, besides New York City. These riches brought grand architecture and there are a number of well-preserved lakefront mansions to explore. Prouty-Chew House and Museum is housed in a grand Federal-style home built in 1829. Rose Hill Mansion, built in Greek Revival style, has majestic Empire-style decor. If you're more into movies than architecture, then take a peek into the Smith Opera House, a former vaudeville theater-turned-movie house, which is renowned for its colorful murals and baroque interior.

Activities

Geneva is angling for compliments

The largest of the 11 Finger Lakes, Seneca Lake is the deepest body of water in the state, which makes it great for fishing. Host to the National Lake Trout Derby, fishing is a pretty big deal here. There's a variety of boat-based fishing excursions on offer. But for those who prefer eating fish to catching them, why not sample the local grape at one Geneva's award-winning vineyards. As the main wine-producing region in New York State, it's home to the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, which takes in over 20 different wineries dotted around the lake.

Weather

Mild-mannered Geneva gets fierce in winter

If you can't bear the heat, then Geneva could be the place for you. In the summer, temperatures reach a comfortable mid-70s. Fall is cooler still, and perfect for enjoying the colorful foliage. If you're planning a visit during the great National Lake Trout Derby in May, then book your Geneva vacation rental far in advance, as it's one of the busiest times in the region. In winter, the mercury drops sharply, bringing plenty of snow with it, along with hordes of skiing and ice skating enthusiasts.

Natural features

Find fur and feathered friends in the Finger Lakes National Forest

Perched on the northern shores of Seneca Lake, an hour south of Lake Ontario, Geneva is well-placed for exploring the Finger Lakes' many natural attractions. Hikers and mountain bikers tend to head southeast of Geneva to the Finger Lakes National Forest. Sandwiched between Seneca and Cayuga Lakes, it boasts dozens of interconnecting hiking trails which criss-cross the forest. Spot rare birds and wildflowers, or get up-close-and-personal with the forest's local furry and feathered residents, which include pheasants, ruffed grouse, and white-tailed deer.
