The Lake House on Canandaigua makes Travel + Leisure’s ‘It List’ 2021

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.”

Scotland has added Dubai to its travel quarantine list leading to speculation that England will follow suit – and sparking fears for celebrities holidaying in the Middle East. 

Dubai has become a popular lockdown holiday destination for the social media elite with countless influencers and reality stars jetting off to the city for some Winter sun.

In November, the United Arab Emirates was added to the Government’s travel corridor list meaning Britons could return to England and not need to quarantine.

But last night, Scotland ordered all arrivals from Dubai to self-isolate for 10 days from 4am on Monday after a surge in Covid cases in Dubai arrivals.

The move is sure to be a blow to the countless celebrities who jetted off to the desert paradise for a holiday as concerns are brewing that England will follow Scotland’s lead.

Best Western chief executive Rob Paterson told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that the chain is “yet to understand exactly what the protocols are required of the hotels”.

He added: “We’ve got all
