The Lake House on Canandaigua, a luxury hotel located in the scenic surroundings of Canandaigua Lake, is launching a unique travel package, offering guests an unforgettable experience of flying from New York City to the Finger Lakes. This high-flying package, available through the end of November, weather permitting, provides travelers with breathtaking views of the rolling hills and pristine waters of the lakes, especially picturesque amid the vibrant autumn foliage.


The luxury hotel has collaborated with Tropic Ocean Airways for this venture, allowing guests to embark on a 90-minute, 226-mile seaplane journey from the New York Skyports Seaplane base on the East River to the hotel’s doorstep. The journey, priced at $16,500, accommodates up to eight people, including provisions for pets and luggage, and promises stunning aerial views of New York City and downtown Manhattan. On arrival, guests are welcomed with a bottle of Finger Lakes wine and a locally sourced charcuterie board, setting a lavish tone for their stay at the 124-room hotel.

The Lake House is focusing on the New York City market, recognizing the growing interest from the city’s residents, with nearly 10,000 online visitors from New York City exploring the hotel’s website. This innovative package is expected to boost local tourism, offering a unique travel experience and showcasing the beauty of the area, contributing to the area’s appeal and business generation. The local tourism stakeholders, including the Finger Lakes Visitors Connection team, have expressed excitement over this new venture, anticipating it to bring more visitors and positive awareness to the region.
