The Victorians were known for a great many things, but chief among those were elegance and luxury. Both of those qualities are found in abundance at this New York inn for sale. Located in the central lakes district of New York State, just outside Ithaca, this gorgeous inn is a masterclass in service and stately grandeur.
Originally built as a lakeside manor, this New York inn has been open to visitors since 1946. Situated alongside the banks of New York’s Finger Lakes, the inn has a number of luxuries that can only be matched by five-star hotels and actual mansions, including twenty-two guest room spread across five different buildings, and a 150-seat dining room.
Accommodations at this inn can only be described as “unmatched.” Though every room is equipped with fine furnishings and provides beautiful views of the lake and surrounding countryside, each room also has its own unique style and personality. Several rooms also feature walk-out porches or balconies and Jacuzzi tubs for deep relaxation.
However, the true jewel of this New York inn for sale is the dining room. With capacity for 150 diners, this inn has made a name for itself as a destination for fine dining in the Finger Lakes. The dining area is one of the major factors in the inn holding both a 3 Diamond rating from AAA and a membership to Select Registry. With that kind of pedigree, you’d be hard pressed to find anything better.
The surrounding area makes this inn even more special. One of the closest and most popular attractions with guests is the Taughannock Falls State Park, featuring a 215-foot waterfall — higher than Niagara Falls — one of the highest east of the Rockies. The park offers plenty of outdoor fun for all ages, including hiking, swimming, boating, and skiing in the winter months.
Wine-lovers will have find no shortage of tastings at tours thanks to the region’s more than 50 vineyards and wineries. Enthusiasts can follow the Cayuga Wine Trail, a popular tour that takes you around the Finger Lakes. In fact, it’s the longest-running wine trail in the United States, and the participating wineries have earned more than 5,000 medals over the years for their vintages. Cheers!
And let’s not forget the lakes themselves. After all, this New York inn is situated on the shores of Cayuga Lake, the longest of the Finger Lakes. At more than 40 miles long, this vast expanse of water offers both breathtaking views and plenty of recreational opportunity. Guests to the inn can enjoy swimming, boating, and fishing in its waters, or sunning on its shores.
