Located in Upstate New York
, this area is named after a procession of long, thin lakes running north to south that resemble fingers
. The biggest of the bunch are Cayuga and Seneca Lakes and while Oneida Lake is also large, it is not considered a part of the Finger Lakes, though some refer to it as the thumb. The region is a hotbed of tourist activity especially in the summer, when the water is warm and inviting. For a great getaway look no further than our condo rentals and vacation rental accommodations.
Known as New York’s biggest wine producer, Finger Lakes area is home to over one-hundred vineyards and wineries
. Cold temperatures take much longer to set in the area because of nearby water bodies retaining heat, making the spot unique for not only wine, but vacationers as well. For a great experience, take some time away from your vacation rental accommodation and tour some of the many wineries open for curious travelers.
Several museums reside in the area including the Johnson museum of Art, located on the campus of Cornell University in Ithaca
and the Strong national Museum of Play which was originally based on the personal collection of Margaret Woodbury Strong but has since been expanded to include a large variety of displays.

. Boat cruises and tours are also available on the lakes. If you want to give the family a real treat, make plans to visit one of several water parks located in the area.
