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.

Summer is coming to an end, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop.

If you're looking for a life-changing experience, the Finger Lakes is the best destination for you. But it's not our famous wineries or our waterfront bed and breakfast that will turn your world upside down--literally (but they are certainly incredible). At Skydive Finger Lakes in Ovid, not even 20 minutes down the road, you'll get to experience a view of six of the Finger Lakes...

Are you a fan of fruit? The Finger Lakes is one of the best regions in the world for growing fruit and a lot of it goes into the making of our famous, delicious wines. But it's more than just grapes we're talking about. This summer, visit the Finger Lakes for a getaway that we guarantee to be just peachy.
