“…stunning four-diamond Geneva On The Lake, has a garden reminiscent of Versailles.”

- The Wall Sreet Journal

“The food is extraordinarily good”

- Bon Appetit

“One of the world’s most beautiful inns.”

- Brides Magazine

“Offering exceptional comfort and service”

- The New York Times

“A near miracle of grace and hospitality”

- Toronto Magazine

“One of the 10 most romantic inns in the United States.”

- American Historic Inns

“Among other aesthetic pleasures at Geneva On The Lake are the symmetrical and manicured flower gardens and hedgerows at the back of the inn, a felicitous setting for walking, communing with nature and reading.”

- The Globe & Mail

“Geneva On The Lake is a charming inn, with beautiful grounds, a 70-foot pool and an excellent view of Seneca Lake… the suites are luxurious… and are furnished with Stickley furniture.”

- Wine Spectator

“We stayed at the majestic Geneva On The lake hotel…Classical sculptures give an air of antiquity, but the solicitous service is as American as a Cortland apple.”

- Gourmet

“Tranquility and good taste characterize the intellectual fare found at Geneva On The Lake, a smallish inn tucked away on the outskirts of Geneva, New York and facing the pellucid Seneca Lake.”

– Post & Opinion (Indianapolis, Chicago, Louisville)

“ Towering pines shade the grounds, creating inviting walkways for thoughtful ambles and intimate conversations. A glider swing beckons from one stretch of lawn; a classical colonnade from another.”

- Finger Lakes Wine Gazette

“Our comfortable suite looked out on to formal gardens that unfurl almost to the water’s edge, where huge cottonwoods rustle in the breeze like wind chimes. The terra cotta tile roof, Palladian windows,Ionic columns, and classical sculptures give Geneva On The Lake an air of antiquity, but the solicitous service is as American as a Cortland apple.”

- Gourmet

“The restaurant as charming and romantic as it is, takes second billing to the food, which is exceptional-all dishes are prepared and served with perfection…the service at Lancellotti is smooth and thoughtful…At Geneva On The Lake, you will be royally spoiled.”

- Upstate New Yorkers

“This is a resort that echoes with the tranquility of a different place and time, of a leisurely European lifestyle that revels in and showcases the finer things of life…The resort is ideal for a romantic getaway, whether winter or summer.”

- The Ottawa Citizen

“Thirty suites of refined luxury.”

- Journal de Geneve

“Good food and service make it a great executive retreat”

- 1997 Zagat

“Located just a few hours from New York City, this luxurious European-style vacation resort welcomes weary urban dwellers with more than just a quiet place to unwind. The property, situated in the heart of the Finger Lakes district, also has spectacular views of Seneca Lake. The scenery is especially lovely from the Lancellotti Dining Room, and the food is especially delicious.”

- Bon Appetit

“No question that my favorite, The Loft, with its lovely cherry mission furniture, is at the top end. It has a cathedral ceiling, a loft furnished with chairs, rockers, and big floor cushions, all positioned to look out at the lake…the formal gardens, and the pool.”

- Karen Brown’s Guide
