It seems like every other week the Finger Lakes area makes it on one list or another for top 10, for best of, or a combination of headlines.  The area is known for so many great things.

  • Wineries/wine
  • Craft beers
  • Beautiful clean and clear lakes
  • Farm to table dining
  • Museums
  • Historic figures that were responsible for Women’s Rights and the end of the slave trade.
  • The birthplace of Memorial Day
  • A roadway and canal system that have their own history
  • Quaint villages and towns
  • Antiques
  • Grand Prix Racing at Watkins Glen
  • Corning Glass and other major corporations were founded in this area

So it was no surprise to see that Yahoo had the Finger Lakes listed as a must do road trip.  There really is so much to see and do in this area.  Many people that come from outside the area are surprised to see that the entire state is not made up of skyscrapers.

If you would like more information on the housing market and or lakefront properties, contact Mary St.George for your real estate needs and she may even encourage you to either invest in the area or purchase a wonderful vacation home.  She will even suggest her favorite spots to visit and dine at.SAM_7754

Fall “Into” The Finger Lakes

 

 

Driving from a client’s property near Hammondsport on Keuka Lake, I felt compelled to stop and take some photos.  I should have stopped more but had to get to another appointment.  As I looked at the photos, it reminded me of the reasons that have made the Finger Lakes area such a destination area in the Fall.  Folks come from near and far for the fall colors and views and of course the wine trails. As you drive down the road on a nice warm day with the windows open, the aromas of the vineyards take over your senses. The visual experience is just as powerful.  It becomes difficult to not stop…you become compelled to stop and saturate your senses.  The colors, the smell, the contrast of the bright blue skies against the autumnal colors in the horizon are all there for you to capture if only in your mind.

Color Your World

 

Keuka Lake, Mary St.GeorgeAs real estate agents in the Finger Lakes, we always advise our clients to use neutral colors on the walls when preparing their homes for sale.

However, when you are the new owner – paint away.  The home is now yours and you need and want to put your personal touches on your new space, those touches that make it yours.  You can choose to make your home warm and cozy or bold and lively.  Or you may want to stick to a very conservative and neutral palette.  If you don’t like the color you chose, you can always redo with minimal costs.watch John Wick: Chapter 2 movie now

A little information about colors:

Blue is great for bedrooms – it is a cool color that brings a calming effect.  Pale blue is a soothing color for a nursery. ( The blue waters of the Finger Lakes are a soothing attraction to visitors)

Purple is regal and royal with the use of deep colors. When lavender is used, it becomes playful.

Green is the color of our world and it creates a feeling of energy.   A great color to put in areas like family rooms.

Kayak Fishing On Keuka Lake

Kayaking has become a very popular activity in and around the waters of the Finger Lakes.  It offers a nice stress free way of relaxing and the opportunity to get some fresh air and a little exercise. I see many people out in the waters in their kayaks, young and old.

Fishing takes on a whole new feel, when you give up the motors os a boat for a nice relaxing afternoon on the lake in your kayak, moving at your own pace.  You slowly paddle to where you want to be cast a line and just sit back and relax.

Many outdoor stores can give you some ideas to outfit your kayak to make your fishing adventure enjoyable. You don’t need a lot.

 Keuka Lake offers so many nice coves to fish in as well as the Keuka Outlet.  The outlet is also a great place to launch your kayak.

If fishing out of a boat has become tedious and expensive, try fishing out of a kayak.  There is no gasoline to worry about, no backing the trailer and waiting in lines to launch your boat and nothing to worry about doing by yourself.  Instead just pull the kayak off your vehicle, grab your gear and in the water you go.
