During my recent visit to the Finger Lakes, I had the opportunity to stay in a locally-owned and operated property just outside of Hammondsport, New York, thanks to the great team at the Finger Lakes Wine Country Tourism Marketing Association.

Vinehurst Inn & Suites was built in 1960 and has become a landmark of sorts for the area. It’s located one and a half miles from Keuka Lake, so it is a great place to start your Finger Lakes adventure, whether it be the great outdoors or the Keuka Lake Wine Trail.

A year ago, spring 2012, Veteran JP Oliver and his wife, Kitty, took over ownership of the property. After some renovations and new landscaping, the inn is now open year-round. As Kitty says on their website, We had minor renovations and landscaping done while upgrading features and amenities to make it a wine country getaway destination for travelers coming to the Finger Lakes to try our wines, hike our trails and enjoy our lakes. The inn is an affiliate member of these organizations: Veteran Owned Business, Finger Lakes Trail, Keuka Lake Wine Trail, Hammondsport Chamber of Commerce, Finger Lakes Cheese Trail, and the Finger Lakes Beer Trail.

The inn resembles a small hotel in structure, but it is more like a bed and breakfast with regard to its warmth and charm. Each room is uniquely decorated, so no two rooms look alike. Room types include standard rooms with queen or king beds, whirlpool suites, and family suites. Amenities include complimentary parking, wireless Internet and continental breakfast, including homemade muffins made by Kitty Oliver. The accommodations are made to feel like home, right down to the beautiful and unique décor, luxury bedding, meticulously clean rooms, gorgeous sink (yes, I have a thing for cool sinks!), organic bathroom amenities, Egyptian cotton towels, corkscrew, and stemless wine glasses.

When I return to the Finger Lakes, the first place I will check for accommodations will be Vinehurst Inn & Suites. I suggest you try them as well, for your home away from home in the Finger Lakes.

  1. So looking forward to our stay here. We will be visiting for my Uncle’s wedding. Perhaps you know him Serphillips. We have visited Hammondsport many times but have always stayed with him or in bath. We waited to long to make our reservations this trip so had to look elsewhere to stay. After seeing all your reviews I think I’m happy they were all booked up. We get to be in the Hammondsport and enjoy all the village has to offer. Looking forward to seeing you July 26 after our long drive from Fort Wayne Indiana.

  2. Lisa, We’ll look forward to your stay. We love your uncle Joe, he’s great and we’re so happy that he’s getting married! See you soon!
