Summer at the Lake

Nothing says summer like a stay at a traditional lakeside retreat where long, lazy days spent swimming and sailing flow naturally into cozy evenings by the campfire, smores in hand.

Thanks to a family of dreamers, the Lake House on Canadaigua has been reborn and, as in days gone by, is bringing back the familiar nostalgia of childhood summer holidays.

Entirely reimagined with a collection of picturesque white buildings nested onto a priceless piece of historical land, The Lake House is a lakeshore resort boasting 124 modern rooms with hand-crafted furniture, rain showers and impossibly soft linens. There’s something for everyone. From picnics on the lawn to water sports and games to blissful treatments at the spa, a week at the Lake House is a return to good old fashioned down time.

Enjoy candlelit dinners at Rose Tavern, or fresh oysters lakeside at the Sand Bar during the summer months, Equal parts American tavern and forward-thinking bistro, a meal or cold beer at the sun-warmed Sand Bar is just what the doctor ordered. 

Welcome to back to life at the lake!


Creekside Saunas

Rooted in the restorative power of nature and designed to tap into its healing energy, the Willowbrook spa is a bastion for recreation and renewal. Nestled into one of the most beautiful locations on the property, it has direct access to the private garden and crystal clear lakefront. 

Like we did, experience a modern interpretation of ancient purification rituals at one of the nicely placed creekside barrel saunas and afterwards,
enjoy the healing wisdom of local therapists with a hot stone massage.
