Resort Awarded 30th AAA Four Diamond Award in 31 Years

January 29, 2013

Dear Friends,

Along with some of our staff, I just returned from the AAA Awards Ceremony where Geneva On The Lake received the 2013 Four Diamond Award.

We feel very privileged to have received this award for the 30th time since opening the resort just over 31 years ago on Thanksgiving Day in 1981.  As we all know, it is in hospitality that a friendly welcome and kind, generous treatment is offered to guests.  And so, to AAA, to its many members, and to all of our treasured guests, we would like to give a heartfelt thank you for making our work and this award possible.  To the wonderful staff of Geneva On The Lake, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for all of your skill, dedication, loyalty, and great team spirit—truly, you are the reason that Geneva On The Lake is a place of such joy to so many.  Carole, Chris, and I have worked together for 30 and 29 years respectively.  With many others, it has been over a dozen years now.

From the beginning, my father Norbert envisioned Geneva On The Lake as a place of hospitality.  He liked to think of the resort as “an oasis—a little island of beauty, peace, and friendliness in a busy world.”

Today, the Alfred and Aminy Audi family, owners of both Geneva On The Lake and L. and J.G. Stickley, Inc. embrace the vision that Geneva On The Lake be “the crown jewel of all resorts.”  Their exquisitely crafted Stickley furniture has helped to give our accommodations the comfort, warmth, and beauty that so many guests have so greatly enjoyed.

Located in the Finger Lakes Wine Country in beautiful Geneva, New York, Geneva On The Lake has its own special allure in winter…as it does in our brilliant summers.  With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we think of February as the month for romance at Geneva On The Lake amidst winter’s splendor. 

To reserve or for more information, please call (315) 789-7190.  We invite you to come soon.
