If you are tired of all the routinary life in the city and in dire need of a quick escape to breathe and relax, why don’t you reconnect with nature in Finger Lakes? From some of the best bed and breakfasts to hotels, there will always be the perfect homes away from home for you and your travel companions. Enjoy your holiday in the “countryside,” and check out these vacation rentals in Finger Lakes, NY

1. Unique apartment for a romantic getaway

Enjoy stunning views of the Seneca Lake from the comfort of this spacious apartment that rests below the host’s apartment. The self-contained apartment still has all the privacy, so you’ll feel right at home, with the host conveniently nearby for anything you might need. For those travelling with your fur friends or children, this is definitely not the home for you. The nearby hiking trails and nature walks are sublime for both of you but quite unsuitable for your innocent babies!
