A Finger Lakes Bed & Breakfast

Offering casual country charm in beautiful New York wine country.

Yale Manor is conveniently located in the heart of Finger Lakes Wine Country, on both the Cayuga and Seneca Lake Wine Trails. Just minutes from Geneva, NY, Yale Manor is privately tucked away on ten acres, in a park-like setting. The manor's boat house rests on the shoreline of beautiful Seneca Lake a short 5 minute walk from the Manor house, with a dock/deck that extends out 100 feet onto the lake, where you can swim and enjoy panoramic views and picturesque sunsets.

Originally built in the early 1900’s, Yale Manor was the main structure of an impressive 365-acre farm complex built for a Mr. James Macdonald from New York City. Mr. Macdonald, U.S. manager for Royal Insurance Co. of Liverpool, England used Yale Manor as the operations center for his “Seneca Juice” business. The original farm contained the juice processing plant as well as its own railroad stop. A Yale graduate, he paid tribute to his school by incorporating the Yale name throughout his operations. After his death, the manor house went through various transformations. In a seriously deteriorated state, the structure was rescued in 1995 and has since been restored to its former glory.
