Geneva On The Lake Wine Country Villa and Resort

Geneva's Wonderful Culture & Heritage
                    .how others sing her praises!

" Geneva is just a short trip from Sonnenberg Gardens, north of Canandaigua Lake; the Corning Glass Center where Steuben is made by hand; and the town of Elmira, where Mark Twain worked on Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn and was finally laid to rest. The old residential area around the original village square-now Pulteney Park-and adjacent South Main Street display splendid examples of Federal and Greek, Gothic, and Romanesque Revival architecture dating back to the late eighteenth century.Geneva is the self-proclaimed 'Trout Capital of the World', and, of course, fishing runs from spring through fall. Winter sports include ice-skating and cross-country skiing in Seneca Lake State Park."

"New York's Finger Lakes region is awash in lakes and lovely towns and villages. It is difficult to pick a favorite but Geneva, at the northern tip of Seneca Lake, the deepest of the lakes, is close to perfect.Geneva boasts glorious vistas of deep blue waters. It is in the heart of wine country.Ivy covered Hobart & William Smith Colleges add a cosmopolitan atmosphere and contribute to the rich and elegant feeling with their stately homes and buildings overlooking the lake.The town echoes with the lives of prosperous 19th - century merchants and farmers who built stately Federal, Greek Revival, Gothic and Italianate homes that line the city's streets."

Hobart and William Smith Colleges

"Geneva had the wisdom several decades ago to create a verdant park cum pathway for one and a half miles around the northern tip of the lake. Circumnavigating the breezy lake promenade on foot affords a view of intrepid bathers braving the cold lake water and numerous sailboats and other vessels plying the gentle waves. Walkers with 20/20 vision will also be able to see in the distance on the eastern edge of Seneca Lake an 1839 mansion called Rose Hill, which features the empire style in vogue during that epoch."

Geneva Historical Society

"Geneva, named for the beautiful Swiss lakeside city, is at the northern end of Seneca Lake and, with a population of 15,000, the hub of this rural region.There are some 50 wineries in the Finger Lakes region - the greatest concentration in the eastern U.S."
