The Lake House on Canandaigua was lovingly conceived of and created by a family of dreamers and doers. The property is a combination of nostalgic familiarity and modern design sensibilities, paying particular attention to sustainability. Each room was designed to integrate the area’s natural beauty and introduce the uninitiated to the charms of lake life. Nestled at the base of Canandaigua Lake,  in the heart of the Finger Lakes, this luxury retreat offers guests the chance to unwind in style with slow, sunny walks in the garden; long days spent sailing and swimming; cozy nights by the fire; and feasts of locally-grown ingredients and the internationally renowned wines produced just a short drive from here.
