Plum Point Lodge on Seneca, formerly known as Rainbow Cove Resort, has a long and proud history as a classic lakefront motel, located on Seneca Lake’s western shore in the literal heart of New York State’s Finger Lakes region. Originally built in phases during the late 1950s and early 1960s, the property was owned and managed by members of the same family for roughly 60 years, and encompassed 24 guest rooms, a full-service restaurant, a pool, a recreational building, and approximately 300 feet of premium lakefront. Over the years, the property became the favorite of a dedicated clientele, many of whom made their annual return to this exceptional lakefront hideaway a long-standing family tradition. The property changed hands in early 2017, and is undergoing a complete renovation and repurposing in order to better serve its customers in the evolution of Finger Lakes tourism and its many and varied attractions. Despite these changes at the Lodge, the new owners are committed to retaining

We stayed at Plum Point in November 2020 and lucked out with unseasonably warm sunny weather allowing us to take advantage of all that the Lodge and the area had to offer (during Covid). We arrived to a great bottle of local wine in our rooms and were able to enjoy a "wine walk" on the docks while our kids played on the front lawn. The view of the lake is simply stunning from almost everywhere on property. Although many of the amenties were shut down for the season we were able to take advantage of the awesome nightly bonfire and brought s'mores fixings letting our kids in on the fun too! Natalie and the team were able to help us with great hiking and restaurant recommendations as well as wineries offering family friendly options (great space for kids to play, lawn games, etc.). We had a conjoining room allowing for some extra space. The girl's room had a slightly better layout with a partial view of the water from bed. I would recommend the team look at repositioning the beds in the rooms to take advantage of that view wherever possible. The restaurant was featuring a quick service style menu for the weekend we were visiting but it delivered on taste and presentation for the breakfast we had on site. Their wine and beer list also delivered some great local options that were better than many we tasted at the local wineries. The location of Plum Point was awesome as most of our "destinations" were in Watkin's Glen or Geneva and Plum Point was a perfect midpoint cutting down the driving. Additionally, the Lodge is on a really quiet road right on the water making for a PERFECT RUN on Friday morning with a view that can't be beat. The area as a whole feels a little like a throw back but in a charming way that makes you comfortable and craving the step back in time. Upon leaving our girls said, "can we come back next year?" Definitely a hallmark of a successful trip. We'll be back.

I am extremely frustrated and disappointed with my experience here. We booked two nights in a yurt and when we arrived everything looked great! However, the yurts are not equipped with heat and the temperature outside was in the 20s. The hotel staff called me a week in advance and told me there would be a space heater provided as it would be very cold the nights were planning to stay. Technically, they did provide one, but it didn’t work. It was so cold my partner and I could not sleep, even with 5-6 layers of clothing on, and ended up leaving at 4am to go back home (a 4.5 driving distance away) because we couldn’t take it. I would have called the front desk to ask for a heater, however, when they called a week in advance to provide details about our booking they made it clear that we were the only guest checking in that night and because of this, they would not have any staff on the property. They told us not to call for anything until Friday afternoon. So I called Friday afternoon to ask for a credit/refund for our second night’s stay since we left early and they refused saying I should have called earlier in the day so they could try and rebook the yurt. How was I supposed to call earlier in the day when there was no staff on the property and I was instructed to not call until Friday afternoon? The receptionist I spoke to was very rude and rushed me off the phone when I tried to explain the situation. It seems like this place only cares about the money they can get out of their patrons and not much else. I am very disappointed and will not recommend this place to anyone in the future.

We stayed here Sept. 2019 for a long weekend. Great, clean lodge. Delicious breakfast in their on-site restaurant. Very serene setting on the lake. Staff and owner very accommodating. Convenient location for traveling to other locations around the lake.

This place certainly looks nice in pictures. Upon arrival we realized that the Plum is just another glorified Motel on the lake that has been spruced up and painted pretty. The room was tiny and dark. How tiny? The second bed protruded into the bathroom entry. Lighting - it seemed the owners were trying to save pennies on LED bulbs and purchased the very lowest lumens available. Lake view? Only if you stick your head out of the door. An overwhelming odor of something lingered in the room for 2 days. AC/Heating unit would hum 24/7 and would kick in every 10-15 mins with a loud turbine whine. Room had No Closet nor a coat hanger. Only a 6 drawer dresser with one broken draw. Mini fridge had its freezer portion in ice since the ice age and had some unknown color stain on top. Bathroom floor was a linoleum! This is supposedly an upscale place, folks! The quality of the toilet paper is another story. I had better paper at work in the public bathrooms. Toiletries on the bathroom shelf had a month old cover of dust. WiFi is spotty, at best. Well, you get the point. Perhaps all this would have been ok only if this property were marketed as a Motel, not as a Lodge with the price tag to go along. Unpleasant experience, indeed.

We just returned from a 3 night stay at Plum Point Lodge, which was our first get-away since the pandemic started. We were pleased with the staff’s enforcement of Covid-19 policies. All staff members were extremely pleasant and accommodating. The entire motel is completely renovated and tastefully decorated. Our room had a queen size bed, with a little sitting area with a sofa, chair and coffee table. It was nice to have the mini refrigerator. Very nice bathroom with modern shower and good size sink and countertop area. Excellent on-site restaurant with amazing food. Beautiful lake views! We will return again!
