What kind of adventures can you and a few friends or your family get into during a three day luxury weekend at one of our Skaneateles luxury vacation rentals? Well, that depends on a few factors! For instance, if you happen to be traveling with a bunch of great people that don’t mind trying something new and getting out in the snow; then the possibilities are endless!
Surprisingly, winter is the best time of the year to go ice fishing in the Finger Lakes, particularly when the lake is partially or fully frozen over. Fish like salmon and trout from all over swarm
Starting in mid-February, the Finger Lakes region also features “Free Fishing Weekends” for any visitors who would like to go fishing but don’t have a New York State fishing license. These weekends are some of the most popular fishing weekends of the year at the Finger Lakes, so if you want to get a spot, you’ll need to act fast! Rentals along the lake are already filling up.
Take a Hike
Taughannock Falls State Park Trails are open throughout the winter. Their flat, scenic trails make them the perfect winter activity. We recommend hiking through any of the 500 miles of winding trails; just come prepared. Ice and snow can get slippery, so you’ll want to let everyone know ahead of time so they can pack the right gear.
Did you know the Seneca Lake Wine Trail has a week-long winery sale? It started as an opportunity for the local wineries to clear out their inventory and get ready for the new harvest and it’s exploded into an amazing event that attracts people around the world to the Finger Lakes. Participating wineries give out tons of giveaways, from bottles to high-end wine accessories. Check the website to see which wineries will be featured this year before you book your rental.
What are You Waiting For?
Americans are overworked and in desperate need of a vacation, yet most of us don’t take out enough time. Why? It can be tricky wrangling a group of friends together to go away for the weekend, but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying a luxurious experience. Our Finger Lakes vacation rentals are more fun with friends, so invite them, but set clear expectations! Schedule far enough in the future so that the rest of the group can still have a blast and won’t be affected by any last-minute “flakers” or friends who have to drop out due to emergencies. Don’t pick just any of the Finger Lakes luxury vacation rentals; it’s a new year! Treat yourself to a luxurious three day weekend. You deserve it!
