Valentine’s day tends to bring out the sweet tooth in everyone! The Finger Lakes Sweet Treat Trail is a Finger Lakes Vacation Rentals collection of the tastiest treats in Cayuga County.

The Historic Avon Inn and Tenuta Torciano Winery cater to wine lovers around the world. During February, they go above and beyond. Once you’ve found a luxury rental, call ahead and book a table for two. While the restaurant does over an amazing a la carte menu, ask about their 5-course meal. It’s an indulgent spread complete with 10 wine pairings and an Italian sommelier. The chefs prepare a different tasting menu every night.

If you’re both craft beer lovers, then you won’t want to miss “Vintage Vines and Valentines.” Picture this! It’s a brisk evening, and you’re meandering through the quaint town of Naples. Every corner offers food tastings, chocolate, local wine, and beer just waiting for you to find.


By Sunday morning, most couples have fallen more in love with each other and the Finger Lakes area. There’s something about the magic of the season and the location. The hardest part of any vacation is the end, so go out with a bang. The Cayuga Lake Wine Trail offers season passes to their 4 major holiday events; check their website for the full list! You can give the gift that keeps on giving.

Sunday evening, you can catch a showing of “PaulTheBeatle,” a one-man show featuring Bob Halligan Jr. as Paul Mccartney. Grab a bite to eat under the stars after the show at a luxurious restaurant in downtown Auburn.

Book Fast

Finger lakes vacation rentals are filling up fast. Don’t get stuck spending Valentine’s weekend in a hotel or motel when you could be lakeside in a spacious and luxurious rental. Whether you plan on staying in and reconnecting or exploring the beautiful Downtown Skaneateles Lake area for delicious cuisine, we can find you the perfect property to pop the question.

Enjoy a Personal Stimulus with a Vacation at Finger Lakes Luxury Rentals

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!

Ice fishing

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

Enjoy Wine with Friends 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. 

Bargain Bash

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!
