By Alice Shapin
Do you know the fantasy where you close your eyes, point at any spot on a map, and — voila! — there’s your next destination? This month, point your finger at the Finger Lakes for not one, but seven adventures in the region.
Where: Finger Lakes B&Bs. www.fingerlakesescapes.com
What’s special: The 11 pristine Finger Lakes spread like, well... fingers across central New York, encompassing 9,000-plus square miles of outdoor adventures and bucolic scenery (with a nice mix of urban hot spots in between). In addition to the abundance of Thoreau-esque lakeside retreats, the region offers world-class vineyards, farm-to-table culinary delights, and internationally acclaimed annual festivals.
The deal: “The Finger Lakes Escape Package: Seven Bed and Breakfasts” in New York’s beautiful Finger Lakes Region (between Keuka Lake and Seneca Lake) invite wanderlusters to enjoy their hospitality at very special package rates. This package includes two nights’ accommodations at one of their well-appointed B&Bs; full complimentary breakfast each morning; a $40 gift certificate valid at local restaurants, wineries, and retail outlets; and a VIP passport for free wine tastings and special discounts at more than a dozen wineries on Keuka Lake and Seneca Lake, as well as several retail shops in downtown Penn Yan. Rates start at $259. Mention Hudson Valley Magazine and receive a free bottle of wine.
When: Valid Sun.-Thurs. and some weekends at the discretion of the innkeeper from August through September 2010
