CANANDAIGUA, NY — The Lake House on Canandaigua has hit the big time.
In Travel + Leisure magazine’s It List for 2021, the hotel was one of the 73 properties cited as “essential” to visit, even if each of the resorts and hotels had opened amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Describing it as “within striking distance” of touring a vineyard or hiking, the magazine said the hotel was “pilgrimage-worthy.”
“In many ways, the Lake House feels like a super-sized vacation home, with an enviable location at the northern tip of the lake, with a swimming pool, a dock (boat rentals are available), a sprawling yard with fire pits and lawn games,” the piece continues. The excerpt also suggested the best reason to visit was to “wake up with a view of the lake and to wander down, bare foot, for a swim.”
