“Love Rainbow Cove so peaceful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2008

My husband and I went to rainbow cove about twenty years ago, different owners at that time. Then about three years ago decided to go back, so here we are going back again this july 08, and hopefully as long as we can. We meant two great friends there from Ohio, so of course we look forward to seeing them every year. The host Jeff & Helen are very nice and make your stay very welcomed. I have recommended Rainbow Cove to friends.

We have come to Rainbow Cove every fall for the last 21 years and every time we can not wait to go back. Jeff and Helen are great hosts who will do anything to make your stay comfortable and fun.

I have been going to this hotel for years.I average going 3-4 times a year. yes it is difficult to get reservations here,but only because everyone wants to be there. I strongly suggest going from monday -friday if you are having trouble getting a reservation.
The owners Jeff and Helen are amazing people and will do anything for you to ensure you have a great stay.
The rooms are comparable to a cottage,and are very clean. I have NEVER had a problem with cleanliness at this hotel.
They have a beautiful pool,wich my family makes plenty use of.
There is an game room,with video games for the kids,an Recreation hall with ping pong and pool tables,and shuffle board,wich hard to believe I am addicted too[I'm only 32,and some of my best times staying here has been playing shuffle board, I THOUGHT that this was only a game that my grandparents would enjoy.]
The food here is amazing too,with a different special every nite,even the kids love the food!
I honestly can not say enough good things about this place,when we leave to go home we can't wait to go back!

The Rainbow Cove Motel is a place that we've stayed at for years. It's a beautiful location directly on Seneca Lake that is easily accessible off Route 14. It is family owned & operated - has that personal touch. They also have a restaurant, pool, and dock/deck directly on the water. The rooms are nothing fancy or pretentious-simply clean and comfortable.

This is one of the quaintest places we've found to stay in our decade of annual trips to Seneca Lake! It's about a fifteen minute drive north of Watkins Glen in a town called Homrod. We stumbled upon it by accident one trip while visiting Four Chimneys Winery. It is the same price as most other hotels in the area, but is hard to get reservations. It took us eight months in advance to schedule a weekend trip in June. Worth it though! What is best is that you don't have to leave the premises. They have a family restaurant that serves three square meals a day - and you can bring your favorite bottle of wine to dinner! They are right on the lake, you can even arrive by boat. They have a pool and rec room - which is great for our seven year old!
