Went to the Belhurst Castle in the Finger Lakes, in Geneva, New York, as part of my ongoing birthday celebration. What a wonderful and unusual place to celebrate a special occasion. So different from the usual Motels or Hotels. Although our sleeping accommodations were in White Springs Manor, when not sight seeing, we spent our time at "The Castle". It was a wonderful experience to see this beautiful Castle with the magnificent wood staircase and trim throughout. The antiques and paintings displayed were lovely. The grounds magnificent and Lake Senaca beautiful. The White Springs Manor was two miles away. Although we were in the "Pond View" room - you had to stretch your neck to see any part of the Pond at all. The room was decorated in a Victorian type motif and had a gas fireplace and a Jacuzzi. Unfortunately, we were unable to shut the fireplace off and it kept going on and off all night long. The drapes on the windows were very thin and so we were awakened very early each morning by the sunlight streaming in. As in most Hotels or Motels, the amount of soap that is given was very sparse. We were so busy that we never got to the gift shop where we would have purchased wine glasses with the Belhurst Castle logo. They were displayed on the fireplace in our room, but of course, I wouldn't just take them. The one negative about this stay was that there wasn't any elevator in The Castle or in White Springs Manor, although I believe there was one in an addition to the Castle. I think this important fact should be noted on their web site - I didn't see that. I would definitely recommend this get away if you are looking for something out of the ordinary.
