Seneca Lake Bed and Breakfasts
Seneca Lake is the widest and deepest of the Finger Lakes and as such provides many wonderful towns, both large and small, that offer wonderful Bed and Breakfast accommodations. Use the map, or the list of towns to find a B&B in that area.
There are 26 B&B's associated with Seneca Lake.
Seneca Lake's sloping hill sides and extremely large quantity of water create a microclimate that is perfect for producing fantastic wine. The Seneca Lake wineries provide a wonderful attraction. With over 45 wineries around the lake, a true wine vacation should take a few days. We recommend you stay in a relaxing B&B when visiting this Finger Lake.
Seneca Lake is 38 miles long and spans four counties in New York. Yates County to the West, Ontario County to the Northwest, Seneca County to the Northeast, and Schuyler County to the South. Be sure to find and enjoy the many waterfalls and NY State Parks in the area.
Seneca Lake Data
Seneca Lake's massive amount of water has a temperature moderating effect that combined with the well drained hillsides make it an ideal place to grow wine grapes. As a result it has far more wineries than any of the other Finger Lakes (in fact, more than any of the others put together). The geography has also made it famous for its rock formations and waterfalls. Watkins Glen State Park should not be missed. Watkins Glen is also famous for its race track.
Because of Seneca Lake's size, the Navy used it during World War II to train sailors at the Sampson Naval Training Station (what is now Sampson State Park). As a result of Seneca's depth and stability in the Winter, the Navy also constructed a permanent sonar research platform near Dresden.
