Finger Lakes Vacation and Cabin Rentals Formed more than 200 million years ago as a result of receding Ice Age glaciers, the Finger Lakes are comprised of 11 freshwater lakes and surrounding forests, making it the ideal vacation spot for outdoor enthusiasts. Located in upstate New York, this region has more than 1,000 waterfalls, countless quaint towns and vineyards, and an abundance of national and state parks. Relax amongst the serene natural landscape or head into one of the nearby cities like Syracuse or Ithaca.
A unique climate is created by the lakes’ presence, which protects the region from the harsh winters and hot summers, forging the perfect location for cultivating grapes. Naturally, the area is known for its more than 100 wineries and farm-to-table culinary scene, which heavily incorporates locally-sourced products.
