This is our second visit to Rainbow Cove in the past six years. We came back because we enjoyed our first visit, and our second was just as good. You do need to understand what this is - a quaint, simple, lakeside motel, kind of retro, but well priced, with a relaxing atmosphere. Rooms are small, with a small bathroom... More

What a lovely spot to spend a night or two or three......Rainbow Cove is a quaint lakeside hotel that I have visited for the last 12 years for a weekend getaway......the older section has sidebyside rooms that have been remodeled. They are very simple but adequate and clean. You can sit outside on the chairs provided to visit with other... More

Found this place by accident. Saw the vacancies sign on the main road and turned down to find motel right by the lake. Lucky to get a room as very popular with people who come year after year. Nothing fancy - just really friendly. Discovered shuffleboard - new to us. Were going to join folks round campfire but there was... More

We stumbled upon this place on our way down the western side of Seneca Lake. We were looking for someplace to eat and we saw a sign. Motel and Restaurant. We took the short detour off of route 14 and pulled into a fantastic funky motel. Very clean and well kept. Also this place sits right on the lake. What... More

We stayed just one night but would have stayed longer if we had other activities in the region. The Rainbow Cove is a little hard to find but not harder than most places right at the lake shore. It is literally a few feet away from the west side of Seneca Lake, south of Geneva and not far from Penn... More

This past October was our 5th trip to Rainbow Cove, what a great time! The hosts, Jeff & Helen are always welcoming and warm, the place is tranquil and couldn't be happier as we descend down the winding road knowing we will soon be in a comfortable atmosphere, enjoyable food, great dock for boat & people watching and our home...

This hotel is a little hard to rate. The family that runs it are very nice. We had a group go in Oct. of 2013. This is not a fancy hotel. The rooms were clean and the bathroom was new. The TV was not a flat screen but some rooms do have them. Our room had a full size bed... More

My wife & I went here for my birthday and enjoyed this property very much. We had a lake-view room as Seneca Lake is literally just across the yard. The owners & staff were friendly and made us feel welcome. The restaurant was packed with folks staying at the hotel but also from town residents which says a lot about... More

On the way home from our Niagra Falls trip we stumbled upon this place taking the Senaca Wine trail. We ate a basic breakfast and enjoyed the tranquil view . I would like to come back and stay at the hotel because it is off the beat and path but still close to all that the area has to offer.... More

We stumbled on this motel by chance as we went to the Finger lakes for a short break,we couldn't believe our luck when they had 2 rooms for us and my sister&brother in law,but at $85 a night we were a little disappointed with the rooms,a bit dated & no tea/coffee facilities but the location was great,right on the lake...
