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

This review may be slightly biased as the days previous to finding Viking Resort were so horrendous! The previous night we were washed out of our tent by torrential rain soaking all of our clothes and our sleeping bags! At the time we would have been happy with any accommodation!! However, the Viking was so much more that this. We... More

My husband and I recently took a trip to the Finger Lakes with another couple. This was a nice place to stay - nice location, nice views, comfy rooms. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It was wet and rainy while we were there, but we could see how great this place would be in nice weather. My only complaint... More

It felt like time traveling back in time when we entered our resort cabin by the lake. The balcony and the view of Lake Keuka were magnificent, but two bedroom apartment we paid $340 for in late September was definitely not worth it, everything look old and tired, toilet got blocked first thing in the morning the rooms look like...

Went there with our children 25 years ago. Thought we would return as we have pleasant memories of the past. We were not disappointed . The resort is as relaxing as it always was. Beautiful lakeside location with a wonderful view of the lake, row boats to use, bonfire when it's not raining and friendly accommodating staff. Oh, yes, pet... More

This place is just great! After enjoying beautiful Keuka Lake for 15 yrs, it is shame we did not discover The Viking much sooner. A fantastic waterfront, friendly to boaters, swimmers, and those that just want enjoy Keukas beauty and catch some sun in a friendly and uncrowded atmosphere. No time lost getting from your room to the water, because... More

I've stayed at the viking two summers in a row now. It's an absolutely amazing place with an absolutely amazing staff! It truly is a hidden gem. With Bon-fires every night to meet the other people that are staying there, it isn't hard to make friends and enjoy your time on the beach. I can't wait to visit again next... More
