Geneva promises finger lickin' fun in the Finger Lakes

Perched at the top of Seneca Lake, the charming small town of Geneva is part of New York State's stunning Finger Lakes region. Proudly named the 'Lake Trout Capital of the World', Geneva is clearly a base for keen anglers drawn to Seneca Lake's trout-filled waters. If fishing's not your thing, try the wine - this is the largest wine-producing area in New York State. Start your Finger Lakes adventure by booking a Geneva vacation rental overlooking the lake. Fresh air, good wine, and fish pulled straight from the lake is what memories are made of here.

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.
