Geneseo oozes small-town NY charm

Little Geneseo village was named by the Iroquois for its natural beauty. Remote and secluded between the Finger Lakes of Upstate New York, it's easy to see why. Geneseo vacation rentals huddle between pockets of oak trees and maples, or droop down the soft, wooded banks of Consensus Lake with their timber jetties and decks. These are the sorts of pads you can expect to find waiting in and around this charming corner of The Empire State, where everything from boating to walking to simply soaking up the local vibes awaits on the menu.

Geneseo offers homey shops and New York countryside

Start on Main Street, the heart of Geneseo. Fringed with cozy little teahouses and boutique gift shops, it's a fine place to meet and mingle with the locals while seeking out those NY souvenirs. From there, you can hop to the waters of Consensus Lake – or just head home to Geneseo vacation rentals on Consensus Lake. That's where life takes a country turn. Picnic spots abound, pontoon boats bob across the surface, folk whip their fishing rods along the banks, and walkers stroll between the inlets from morning till night.

Discovering Geneseo's heritage

For such a small town, you might just be surprised at how many worthy heritage and cultural attractions sit right on the doorstep of those Geneseo vacation rentals. Start with the National Warplane Museum, which huddles on the grounds of the local airport. It's packed with WWII fighters and paratrooper planes that were used in the D-Day attacks. Then there's the Livingston County Historical Society Museum, for tales about Iroquois Indians and the rich backstory of Upstate New York.

Summer is popular in Geneseo

Geneseo's place on the edge of the Finger Lakes region means that it attracts most of its visitors during the warmer months of the year. From the first signs of spring in April and May to the changing colors of the fall in September and October, Geneseo vacation rentals fill up with boaters, fishers, walkers, and anyone who just wants a slice of more laid-back life away from the Big Apple. In the winter, when the snows hit between December and March, other folk come for hearty Christmas fairs and ice fishing.

Geneseo and the Finger Lakes

Geneseo sits on the westward end of New York's Finger Lakes region. Hugely popular with country lovers looking for relaxed vacations between the woods and waters, it's defined by softly sculpted landscapes of tree-topped hills and wide fields. Arguably the most amazing state park in the area sits really close to Geneseo. That's the Letchworth State Park – the so-called Grand Canyon of the East. It's a glorious medley of cascading waterfalls, steep-sided gorges, verdant forestry, and gushing rivers – not to be missed.
