There's a reason this is a top pick in Geneva for bed and breakfasts. Garey was very hospitable, flexible and runs a really nice b&b with a wonderful view of the lake. The breakfasts are excellent. Can't think of any cons. Highly recommended.

My husband and I recently stayed at Paradise on the Lake Bed and Breakfast. We wanted a location convenient for visiting the area's local wineries. JACKPOT! We got all that and more. Garey was a gracious host with helpful tips for restaurants and activities. The rooms were clean and tastefully furnished. What we hadn't really counted on were the spectacular... More

We stayed 2 nights at Paradise on the Lake in Geneva, NY. We were greeted at the door by the host, who immediately assisted with luggage and provided information on restaurants and sights in the area. Great breakfasts and conversation both mornings we stayed. Both evenings we spent the early evening enjoying the beautiful sunsets over Seneca Lake. A very... More

We very much enjoyed our visit to Paradise on the Lake. Not too far from Geneva, it has a choice lakefront location on the east side of Seneca Lake, just south of Bottomless Brewery and Ventosa Vineyards. The host, Garey, was very welcoming and informative -- we enjoyed our discussions with him over breakfast (and the breakfasts themselves), and his... More

I booked a last-minute trip to The Finger Lakes and decided on this property based on the location - right on the water. Did not disappoint! Amazing views and very peaceful atmosphere.

It was a pleasure meeting you and Sean. We have many wonderful guests who enjoy the property, view and area, and you certainly did just that. The NYC area is wonderful, but keep the Finger Lakes area in the back of your mind as that little getaway area. Thank you for your kind words and your enjoyable visit with us.... More

This was my first visit to Paradise on the Lake. The owner created a very comfortable atmosphere, making it easy to enjoy a relaxing weekend. With 2 large decks facing Lake Seneca you are sure to enjoy the view morning to night. The room was spacious (with an adjoining bathroom) and a cozy queen sized bed. I will definitely return!

I travel quite a bit and am always looking for a 5 star experience. This B&B did not disappoint! The house is beautiful and the host, Garey, is outstanding! The rooms are well done and very clean. Extremely comfortable and the lake view can't be beat. Breakfast was yummy! Thank you Garey and Linda for making our stay special.

Situated right on Seneca Lake, I also recommend driving around it - many wineries, breweries, grape pies, baked goods, beautiful views, etc etc. Also recommend going to the park in Watkins Glen and walking up the ravine...
