An excellent golf course and setting, not far from Rochester overlooking the Finger Lakes, was fortunate to have found it using the Forelinksters.com guide to the best public golf courses in America, a true hidden gem

My husband and I decided to spend our 10 year anniversary at Bristol Harbour. We attended a wedding there a few years ago and were really impressed. The same could not be said this time around. We had mishap after mishap. It began when we arrived in our room and in the bathroom found a toilet seat that looked like... More

My husband and I were at the resort for a wedding. Both the service and reception hall were lovely with wonderful vistas. The food and service were excellent and we had plenty of room to move around. We rented a house that accommodated our family and even rented a pontoon boat. Everything came off perfectly and we had a wonderful... More

We rented 2 cottages and 2 rooms for a family reunion, and were very pleased with the quality of the cottages. They were furnished very differently, but both were spacious and well appointed and equipped. The full sized kitchens made it easy to prepare meals, there were also grills available and large tables. The views over the lake were great,... More

Now this wasn't the cheapest place to stay but wow did the views off the back deck make it worth it. We stayed one night in a 2 bedroom/2 bath cottage near the clubhouse/restaurant. We had 4 adults and 2 kids under three. The cottage looked brand new. Great flooring and furnishings throughout. The place was very clean when we... More

We have been visiting Bristol Harbor resort for 30+ years. It just keeps getting better. The restaurant and golf course were amazing. Service was great. We stayed at a cliffside condo which was very tired, but the tennis courts and beach, which are part of the facilities were all first class. We have stayed at the hotel in the past... More

I have been visiting Bristol Harbour for 25 years. I never get tired of the golf course. There is a wonderful variety of holes. I have visited with a variety of groups. Large group of guys, family group, couples and only a couple of us. Bristol caters well to all of us. The hotel & cottages afford a good choice... More

Just got back from another couples trip to our Favourite Resort in Upstate NY. Once again we stayed in the cottages and loved them. They are so modern, spacious and clean. I am terrible at remembering names but great service from Becky who books our reservations, to the front desk at check in and friendly service in the Pro Shop... More

Book condos with caution. The Resort has a number of Cliffside Drive condos they manage and rent under the Bristol Harbour name. We stayed in a 2/2; lake view was great (expansive) but the condo did not meet expectations: very old carpet and furnishings, moldy smell (even shower curtain rings were moldy), cobwebs all over the outside patio (not cleaned)...

First time visit to this magnificent resort - breathtaking views of the lake. The entire complex is finished perfectly for the setting - pine, wrought iron, log/twig furnishings. We stayed in the lower level of the three level 'hotel' complex. All floors afford an excellent view - top floors would have a better view and less foot traffic. Our room... More
