Visitors are beginning to flood the area but it is still no “peak season.” Such wonderful opportunities to hike, bike, golf, taste wine and beer, explore and more. Here are just a few options… and don’t forget our wonderful special this month – Stay two weeknights and the third weeknight is free. Visit our Packages page for more information.

A New Life in Spring

June Is A Busy Month

Geneva Historical Society, 543 South Main St., Geneva, 14456.

Busk: to entertain on the street. Balter: to dance artlessly. Busk and Balter combines the best of both in a one-of-a-kind celebration of music and good times. On June 2, from 1:30 – 3 p.m., musicians, dancers, and jugglers, can be found around Naples’ Main Street while merchants offer wine tastings. Main St., Naples, 14512.

Plein Air painting is the art of painting in an outdoor setting and the Finger Lakes has a whole festival dedicated to it! The Finger Lakes Plein Air Festival will be taking place June 5 through June 10. During thistime, be on the lookout for painters around Canandaigua and Naples. It’s more than ok to stop and watch them work! For more information, including a list of events, call (585) 394-0030.

Sonnenberg Gardens

May 12, 2018 by Innkeeper

Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion located in Canandaigua, New York opened April 28, 2018 for the season.

Old Man Winter was very reluctant to loose his grip this spring. Even the first day of the Spring Wildflower & Orchid Show saw a snow covered ground before sunrise. As such, spring flowers were still sleeping and did not make their appearance for the show. Even some of the earliest spring flowers like bloodroot, which is usually past blooming by the time the Orchid Show starts, had yet to make its appearance. As a result, guests visiting for the show were told that the garden still had its “winter face” on.

But that face will soon change. Opening Weekend is expected to be quite a show of spring color as the plants try to make up for being weeks behind schedule. This is good news for visitors as the park is going to wake up in a great explosion of color and new growth. Visit Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion soon to see our always unique and never repeated garden show that each and every visit offers!
