De-Stress with a Trip to the Skaneateles Region of the Finger Lakes

We think it’s time for you to treat yourself to a little rest and relaxation! The Skaneateles region is perfect for weeks of family fun and tranquility, a weekend stay-cation, or a day trip to escape the noise.

Fall Fun

When you stay at one of our Skaneateles luxury vacation rentals, you and your family will get to relax in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region. Whether you’re a fast-paced, thrill-seeking vacationer, or you’re simply looking for a way to unwind,  there’s something from everyone. Maybe this year will be the time to start a new family tradition, like apple picking!

Our Finger Lakes vacation rentals are a short walk or drive to some of the most beautiful apple orchards in the country. Apple picking is more than just wholesome family fun; recent research found there’s’ also scientific evidence of their stress-relieving effects. According to one study, being in an environment surrounded by lush trees, can reduce many of the typical stress indicators, like high cortisol levels, heart rate, and blood pressure.

De-stress by picking apples

It turns out there’s just something about exploring an apple orchard that allows us to escape the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives and embrace the serenity of nature. Even if you’re not an “outdoorsy” person, you can still reap the calming benefits of an apple-picking afternoon with your family.  

Burrel’s Navarino Orchard is a family-owned-and-operated orchard nestled along the rolling hills of South Syracuse. They have been serving vacationers for three generations. Depending on the season, you can handpick your own strawberries, raspberries, and apples!

At the Greek Peak Mountain Resort, you can catch a movie with your family under the stars! On Friday and Saturdays, you can join us for “Movies at the Mountain,” and see a mixture of new releases and cult classics. The best part is you can wear your favorite PJ’s and curl up in your car with the kids. You don’t even have to leave your seat to get a snack. Just text or call in your treats from your vehicle. How’s that for a hassle-free family movie night! 

Greek Peak also has the most breathtaking hiking trails around the scenic Hope Lake. Pack up the family for a day of canoeing, and paddle-boating, and a relaxing picnic by the picturesque lake.
