Planning a proposal in 2020? Arrange a romantic getaway to the Finger Lakes and make it an engagement to remember! Our lakeside vacation rentals have hosted hundreds of bridal parties, bachelorettes, and wedding guests, but there’s nothing quite as special as hosting the beginning of it all.
We especially love when our brides-and-grooms-to-be share photos of the big moment with us! Here are some of the happy couples we hosted this year and the homes where they popped the question:
Love is in the air at this secluded chalet! Drive right through a vineyard on your way down to the Seneca Lake shoreline where this cottage sits. Modern updates blend with old world charm to make Stowaway the ultimate setting for your Finger Lakes proposal!
We couldn’t ask for a better photo!
This home has 300 ft. of lake frontage and a newly rebuilt dock to ensure everything goes according to plan!
This home is perfectly situated for a romantic hike in Finger Lakes National Forrest or nearby Watkins Glen State Park. Plus, you’re surrounded by award-winning wineries and breweries!
The Boat House
Located midway between historical Seneca Falls, and “gorges” Ithaca, The Boat House is the ideal couple’s retreat. Here, comfort meets minimalist, millennial design, from the chic open concept kitchen to the airy loft bedroom. Even the dock was made for two, with Adirondack chairs and plenty of space to get down on one knee.
This is the kind of place you’ll want to return to for anniversaries and honeymoons for years to come.
We imagine this will be the first of many proposals at this modern retreat!
Enjoy an evening of live music and dancing within walking distance at The Boathouse Beer Garden!
This beautifully remodeled lake house looks like it was taken from the pages of a magazine. Clean, cozy, and comfortable, you’ll love cooking together in the gourmet kitchen and snuggling up next to fireplace.
A light snow made this proposal picture perfect!
For a more intimate experience, stay in the off-season. You’ll take advantage of lower rates, 3 for 2 specials, and fewer crowds at area attractions.
This home is right on the Keuka Lake Wine Trail and only a short drive from the charming village of Hammondsport.
This luxurious Seneca Lake home is the perfect spot to celebrate your engagement with family and friends! Enjoy over 4,000 sq. ft. of living space, including a finished basement with a bar, game room, and gas fireplace. The lake view deck spans the entire backside of the home, offering front row seats and a hot tub to enjoy to sunset from.
The lawn at Seneca Shores offers so many different locations to pop the question. We love that this group captured beautiful, blue Seneca Lake in the background of this special moment. Plus, they had plenty of room to celebrate!
To earmark the special occasion, we suggest a champagne toast at nearby Glenora Wine Cellars.
The perfect escape for your engagement! This sizable rental offers two master suites, one with its own entry separate from the rest of the home, so you can include the whole family, while still having a little privacy.
Cheers to the newly engaged couple!
Stone Crest offers multiple decks overlooking the water and a 30 ft. dock with rolling hills in the background. Why not schedule an engagement photo shoot during your stay?
This upscale home sits on the shores of Keuka Lake, only minutes from downtown Penn Yan. Break bread at nearby Union Block Bistro to celebrate your engagement!
Our Picks For Your Proposal
Here are some of our favorite romantic retreats to book for your Finger Lakes proposal:
Sunset Point let’s you truly get away from it all! This serene location features an extra large lot with 175 ft. of Keuka Lake frontage and a completely updated look, inside and out. Light a fire by the water at sunset for the perfect lakefront proposal.
This adorable cottage stays true to the lake house theme, from the wall decor to the rugs on the floor. This home has ample dock and deck space for the big moment, but for a more creative proposal, consider a snowy evening in festive Seneca Falls.
Glen Hollow Guest Cottage
Glen Hollow offers the privacy of a vacation rental with the amenities of a wine country inn. This historic landmark features naturally beautiful grounds, a waterfall, and one-of-a-kind rustic charm. The guest cottage is an old carriage house full of modern amenities and original features, like sliding barn doors and a bedroom in the hayloft!
