The waves of Seneca Lake quietly lap at the small New York city of Geneva, providing a picturesque backdrop to this charming destination. Whether you’re here for the wine, fishing or beautiful surroundings, you’ll find them all and more if you stay at these Geneva hotels – bookable on Culture Trip.

Doesn’t matter if it was water or wine that brought you to the Finger Lakes – you’ll quickly discover that Geneva is your cup of tea. The eclectic dining, romantic lakeside castle and quiet waterfront walking trail will show you why visitors have flocked to this historical city since the 18th century.

Maybe it’s the wine talking, but we think you’ll fall in love with the historic suites in Geneva on the Lake. The Chippendale furniture and marble fireplace of the Classic Suite are rivaled by the grand mirrored red double whirlpool of the Chapel Suite. The Loft Suite interior balcony does give a great view of Seneca Lake, but there’s just something about the cozy fireplace and fine literature of the Library Suite that you’ll find irresistible.

Fall asleep in a castle, and wake up in a winery. No, it’s not a fairytale – it’s the too-good-to-be-true reality of staying at Belhurst Castle. Complimentary wine spigots flow freely in your Chamber room and taste even better in the enchanting Tower Suite. Get your fill and then some with a six-course wine and dinner pairing featuring locally sourced stuffed mushrooms, sorbet, and veal seared in duck fat. Does all of that sound dreamy? Just wait until you stumble upon the spa and salon.

A refined manor house or a luxe Mongolian tent: those are your two tempting options at Yale Manor B&B and Yurt Glamping. Should you spend your evenings in the library or billiards room, sneaking off to the manor house kitchen for a late-night snack? Or will you camp in style beneath the stars in your luxurious tent, nestled in a private section of the grounds? Both feature full bathrooms, firepits and access to the lake, so we see any choice as an absolute win.

    Even after a long day on the lake, Holiday Inn Express & Suites knows that your kids will still want to go for a swim. Grab the towels and take them down to the indoor pool – and make sure you throw on a pair of trunks so you can relax in the whirlpool while they practice their cannon balls. If they somehow have the energy to wake up and dive back in again, you can at least take comfort knowing that there’s unlimited complimentary coffee for you in your room and in the lobby.
