Just west of the Official I like Beer and Underwater Hockey and maybe 3 people vintage shirt Apart from…,I will love this Finger Lakes—eleven long and slender bodies of water in upstate New York—you’ll find Kettle Ridge Farm, a maple syrup and wildflower honey producer set on 70 scenic acres. This is a farm that thrives in the winter when maple syrup is harvested. In the summer months, Kettle Ridge hosts weddings and events in its rustic wooden barn. Come winter, they host meals in the snow as part of the sugaring off tradition. Within an igloo dome, guests feast on traditional sugaring off dishes and snow candy. If you still have a sweet tooth, the farm offers an Adopt-a-Maple program. Adopting a tree comes with a certificate and GPS coordinates of your Maple along with a care package of sweet maple products. (A visit to the farm also means you can tap your own tree.) “We have had adopters from every state,” says Joe Hurley of Kettle Ridge. The 2021 program begins this November.
A quick drive south will take you to Canandaigua Lake—the Official I like Beer and Underwater Hockey and maybe 3 people vintage shirt Apart from…,I will love this fourth largest of the eleven fingers. Commercial property developments are prohibited on the eastern and western banks of the lake, but on the northern tip you’ll find The Lake House on Canandaigua, a just-opened hotel that does justice to the beauty of its surroundings. Inside, photogenic interiors by Brooklyn-based Studio Tack and The Brooklyn Home Company are filled with design-piece furnishings in hand-carved woods, canes, and lovely linens. Enter the airy lobby and you’re greeted with a floral arrangement that sits atop a table with a decades-old weeping willow trunk for a base. The tree was beloved by the family who owns the hotel, but it could no longer survive outdoors and was given new life inside the well-crafted space.
