The rooms at the Sherwood Inn—a former stagecoach stop—have lake views and fireplaces.

The property is a nice change from the area’s chain hotels: B&B accommodations, art glass, and antiques in an 1890 Greek Revival mansion in a leafy residential neighborhood.

The rentals are simple and summery, like the town of Clayton itself, with screened porches and a view of the St. Lawrence River.

Built in 1909, this Federal-style resort makes a grand first impression thanks to 30-foot pillars and a lengthy walkway up to the entrance. Wide verandas overlook Otsego Lake (dubbed the Glimmerglass), the pool, and golf course.

The lakeside Victorian B&B has romantic rooms decked out with Persian rugs and antique beds.

This charming little B&B in an 1855 Gothic Revival house on Van Cleef Lake features Victorian antiques and full sit-down breakfasts.

One of two lakeside inns in buildings owned by Wells College, the 1858 former residence was reimagined, top to toe, by American Girl doll creator Pleasant Rowland—part of a one-woman beautification campaign in a historic Finger Lakes town.
