Celebrating 30 Years of Hospitality


Thinking of You . . . as plans unfold for year 2012.

Thanksgiving Day 2011 is Geneva On The Lake’s 30th Anniversary of offering hospitality in beautiful Geneva, New York, the heart of Finger Lakes Wine Country.

Since work began in 1980, the profound vision of my father Norbert, the artistic vision of my uncle William Schickel and the contributions of their numerous collaborators has been greatly blessed.  The once private Nester Estate, then beloved Capuchin monastery, though once abandoned in the late 1970’s, now offers rest, refreshment and hospitality to guests at Geneva On The Lake.

Over these three decades the effort, support and encouragement of many hundreds, indeed thousands, of people have graced this work of culture, rebuilding and renewal.

To so many who have done so much and most of all to members of our dedicated and talented staff, our local community and our wonderful guests for whom it has been our privilege to serve . . . a word of heartfelt thanks and gratitude.

                           We hope to see you in the coming year,

                                              Bill Schickel
