Yurts Offer A Great Glamping Upstate NY Option

The glamping tent or yurt comes complete with a plush queen bed, table, seating, and futon; ceiling and oscillating fans; lights and electricity; flat screen, cable TV; and small refrigerator. Additionally, each Yurt has a private bathroom, with a shower, toilet, and vanity. The Yurts also include WIFI service, although, given the rural nature of their location, service can at times be problematic (we are at the mercy of a small local provider). Please note the rules and tips applicable to the glamping yurts under “Policies”.  There are some outdoor chairs in front of every yurt so you can sit and enjoy yourself.

The yurts are located behind the main building and between a small wooded area that wall in the camping area on 3 sides, creating a relatively secluded and peaceful spot.  In front of the yurts is a yard with a communal camp fire pit complete with Adirondack chairs.  Behind the yurts is a stream that empties into Seneca Lake.  The hotel was originally called Rainbow Cove because of the rainbow trout in that stream.  The glamping area has its own outdoor parking area.  There is also a small trail towards the back of the camping area that is fun to explore.

Like all guests, you also get access to the other resort amenities like the pool, dock, weight room, bar, and restaurant.  One of our most popular amenities are the fire pits.  The yurts have the extra benefit of having their own firepit in the camping area.  These campfires are lit by staff about sundown and turned off around ten at night.

Glamor camping or glamping has become a popular way to camp while enjoying the amenities and comfort of a hotel.  Our yurts, which are 20 feet in diameter, have been featured in Forbes Magazine as The Best Glamping Sites In The Northwest.  Glamping in the Finger Lakes is especially enjoyable because of the cooler weather.  You can open the top of the yurt and cool air flows right in.  We have 6 yurts and because of the limited number they fill up fast.  Be sure to make a reservation soon!
