Karen Kuhl, executive director of the Cayuga County Office of Tourism, told The Citizen that the pandemic highlighted Cayuga as a safe and attractive destination. Responding to the growing demand for more accommodation, the county’s tourism office recently initiated a study to determine potential sites for a new hotel.

REVPAR International, a renowned hospitality consultancy, shortlisted five locations, with three close to Emerson Park and Owasco Lake, including two county-owned properties, according to reporting by The Citizen.

The White Bridge Road location, one of the county-owned sites, received the highest score from REVPAR and has been selected for a detailed feasibility analysis, expected to complete in the coming month.
