Sitting on the shoreline of Keuka Lake, the Viking has a lot going for it -- not the least of which is the view! Do not expect a true "resort" experience, rather a perfectly peaceful and lovely encounter with nature in a tranquil setting. The cabin we stayed in was perched right on the lake and gave us spectacular sunsets... More

I was a bit nervous at first, as it looked outdated, but this was one of the best places I have ever stayed! Our room, a king suite, was the cleanest room I've ever stayed in, beating out most big chains. As a family owned resort, it is clear they care about their visitors. The site was kept extremely neat,... More

We stayed during the weekend while our son was at a nearby camp. We were not expecting the Ritz based on some reviews we read. What we got was a very nice, clean room with a kitchen and sitting area. The room was somewhat outdated, but that more added to the charm of the place rather than take away from... More

First time here and pleasantly surprised! Rustic but very clean. Balcony and beach were wonderful. It was a quiet retreat, just what I was looking for on beautiful Keuka lake. I am looking forward to coming back again!

My boyfriend and I were looking for a quick get away for our anniversary. We decided on Keuka Lake and the Viking Resort. We stayed in the Rustic Efficiency it was very clean and had a great little porch with a view of the lake. A short walk down the the walkway leads you to this open "beach" area. There... More

I spent a weekend at the Viking in June, 2014, and although I have been in similar motels, that is, motor lodges that were built in the '50's and haven't been upgraded since then, for what I was paying for a room ($120 a night), I was expecting much better. This place reminded me of the resort fictionalized in the... More

If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, this is the place for you! This was our first visit to the Finger Lakes, and we could not have been happier with our peaceful, lakeside accommodations. Our "Rustic Efficiency" consisted of a full kitchen, full bath, queen bed (in private sleeping area) and two twin... More

I love the Finger Lakes, and Lake Keuka is my favorite. I used to live in Rochester but now live in Canada so I had to bring my friends to visit one of my favourite places on the planet! I met my brother Ed there who is a boater and he is the one that recommended this place. No, it... More
