I had something just like this in mind for a three day retreat with my family. I have was especially pleased to find this option so close to Rochester, NY and to top it all off, on a Groupon special. With a pull out sofa bed, gas fireplace and kitchen in the room it was just perfect for a relaxing... More

Our family of four enjoyed a calm, relaxing and fun two-night stay at Hope Lake Lodge in June. We stayed in a Northwoods Suite which had one queen bed, one queen sleeper, a table with four chairs, a coffee table, a small kitchen and a small bathroom. The room suited our family well (we have a 6 year old and... More

We spent memorial weekend here with 4 other families. For my family, we availed of the suite with the living room and full kitchen and it was very spacious. We like to go here because it doesn't get overwhelmingly crowded like other water parks. The water park is clean as well as the hotel rooms. With a full suite, you... More

We stayed in a Split Rock Suite which sleeps 8. The resort has nine different room configurations. Extensive photos of the various units can be viewed on the hotel site: Oyster.com. If you’re used to staying in a hotel room with no kitchen you’ll be thrilled with the accommodations because it’s far better than a standard hotel room. We spend... More

I stayed at Hope Lake Lodge recently for a girls weekend with my in-laws. We had the loft room with two bathrooms, a hideaway bed and a Murphy bed. It was the perfect set up for us. Having the kitchen was also a nice addition so we could arrange breakfast and make ourselves comfortable and feel at home. The staff... More

Hope Lake Lodge is our go-to place in the Finger Lakes. We love staying here! The suites are very clean and spacious. For the Memorial Day Weekend, we were in a loft, so our kids had fun just running up and down the stairs. The view from our suite was amazing too, because we were facing Greek Peak. The indoor...

Wow!!! Much more than we expected! The lodge has this awesome indoor water park for all ages. It features an inside jacuzzi and heated pool that when in either one you can continue to go out to an extension part of them and still be in the heated water. Imagine this in the pure cold of winter! Then the view... More

Overall I enjoyed the atmosphere of this place. It's very large, clean and warm. The fireplace in the lobby was going and the staff is friendly. There were a few small issues. The lighting in the bedrooms are very dim. There's like 2 small lights. The breakfast was good but nothing g special. It's pretty much generic items, brown and... More
