Our first time here and won't be our last. Very peaceful atmosphere. Nothing fancy, but clean. Bonfire every night, docking for your boat, games for kids, swimming pool, gazebo, cute restaurant and great people.

My honey and I discovered the Rainbow Cove restaurant last year and felt so peaceful.😎 This time we went there intent on getting booked! Lucky us, there were 2 slots open in July. We were so happy to be part of the evening ritual of gathering at the campfire, chatting while the sun colorfully disappeared over lovely Seneca Lake. Breakfast... More

This was our first trip to Rainbow Cove and it surely will not be our last! What a wonderful family owned place to stay. The staff was very friendly and the establishment was immaculate. The view on Seneca Lake was amazing and the kayaks we rented from Rainbow Cove were so much fun. I especially enjoyed the bonfire with other... More

While traveling through the finger lakes area decided to try out this spot. On location there are motel type rooms available, a quiet and tasteful restaurant, a game room section, a lakeside sitting area, pool and a great place to have a walk and relax. The rooms are nice and simple, well kept, maintained, comfortable, quiet, wifi available and TV.... More

I miss this place. My family stayed here every year for a few years. This place is old school. No wifi. Limited tv. Place was a throw back to the 70's but my requirements are cleanliness & service. Room was clean & service was great. Bonfire in evenings was a great way to meet other guests. Food was decent but... More

Old fashioned motel in the mountains place, with an on-site restaurant that serves very decent food. On the Lake with a great view, boat slip, and relaxation. If your a camper type person, this is a nice upgrade, but not a high rent place, and that's a good thing! Ordinary people enjoying the great outdoors, and only about 12 minutes... More

If you want a vacation like you've been waiting for....that vacation that is eluding you....go to Rainbow Cove. Today we are hassled at airports, struggle to get into hotel rooms piled on top of one another, search for good food....enough! Drive to Rainbow Cove, hop in your room, and the rest is at your reach--it's easy, it's friendly, it's all... More

Stayed this past weekend with my husband and 9 year old. We all enjoyed it. The location is beautiful. The bonfire great. The restaurant has very good homestyle food. We met nice guests many of whom come every year. Our room seemed fairly recently renovated. The beds are not very comfortable. The cost is very reasonable. We would definitely come... More

My husband and I have been coming here for years each summer for a few days. We no longer even leave to do the wine tours, we now just relax, read, watch the water, take walks and find ourselves. No matter where else we go all year, Rainbow Cove is THE place we think about and look forward to the... More
