Finger Lakes Premier Properties continues to be profiled in national and regional travel guides. Frommer's, which is the largest travel magazine in the United States and Canada, profiled the Finger Lakes as one of the Top Ten Places to Rent a Vacation Home. Their research included discussions with Finger Lakes Premier Properties, a full review of our website (which they rated the best in the Finger Lakes) and photographs of one of the Finger Lakes vacation homes we manage.
In Life in the Finger Lakes, a regional magazine, Finger Lakes Premier Properties provided an overview of the vacation rental industry and gave advice on how best to purchase and rent a vacation home. 2nd Home Journal featured Finger Lakes Premier Properties in an article about owning a vacation home in wine country, and Sherman's Travel announced in 2009 that the Finger Lakes was the top lake resort region in the world. Not to be outdone, Trip Advisor ranked the Finger Lakes as one of the Top Ten Wine Destinations in the world. We are pleased to play an ongoing and lead role in the vacation home industry in the Finger Lakes.
