The Perfect Autumn Adventure
Fall in the Finger Lakes, especially Skaneateles which is at a higher altitude than the others, is unlike anything you have experienced, even if you’ve visited other times of year. The beauty of this season’s fall foliage and the stage at which wineries and orchards are in is prime and does not compare.
The Finger Lakes vacation rentals are in a region of New York renowned for many apple orchards. Conveniently located within short driving (or walking) distances of these homes have many attractions including perfect, colorful orchards for fall.
