Finger Lakes New York
It's time to pack for your trip to the Lake!
Use this checklist to be sure you don't forget any important items for your vacation. Because things like toilet paper, paper towels, and cleaning products are in limited supply, please plan to bring these with you along with the additional items listed below.
Corona Virus Essentials
Currently, masks are required inside any New York State retail establishment. Be sure you have face coverings for each member of your family along with hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes. We also encourage you to practice social distancing and reduce time in local stores by bringing groceries with you or having them delivered.
Things to Bring!
Sunscreen is recommended to be SPF 30 or higher and waterproof. If you do get sunburned, Aloe Vera is highly recommended to help heal your skin.
Whether you’re sitting around a campfire or eating dinner outdoors, sometimes the bugs can be a challenge, so bring the bug spray.
While enjoying a boat ride or hanging out at the beach on a hot summer’s day, you might want a cold beverage, so bringing a cooler is recommended. Be sure to stock up on plenty of water.
You’ll want something to capture and record some of your best moments on your vacation with us.
If your rental has a washer and dryer, you may consider bringing the supplies necessary to wash your clothes. We recommend high efficiency detergent. We provide detergent for your first load.
The rock bottom of the lake contains some mussels that could cut your feet, so you wouldn’t want to go in barefoot. Crocs® are an excellent alternative.
We cannot guarantee there wont be a rainy day in NY.
First Aid Kit
This might include band aids, anti-itch cream, bandages, and other medical supplies, just in case. You want to be prepared in case any allergies kick in. (Please note that any prescription medications that are left behind CANNOT be returned! Be sure you remember to take them home with you!)
A Light Sweatshirt
You might need this if you are outdoors at night watching the sunset and the moon rise.
Extra Kitchen Supplies
Each rental is given a welcome bag with 1 garbage bag, 2 roll of paper towel, 1 dish washer tablet, and toilet paper roll for each bathroom. Plan ahead and bring enough of those items with you to last the remainder of your stay.
There are several hiking trails in the areas around the Finger Lakes, so be prepared for any adventure!
Such as snorkeling equipment (goggles, flippers, snorkel, etc). There are all kinds of interesting fish that might be worth exploring, while on your lovely vacation.
Always be sure to have your shampoo, deodorant, soap, razors, toothbrush, etc. for a trip to the lake.
Even though it is not technically "the beach." It's still a good idea to bring a few beach towels with you.
Chargers for Electronics
This might include chargers for your cell phone, i-pad, k, laptop, etc.
Glasses or Contacts
There’s nothing worse than a tear in a contact lens or broken glasses and not being able to enjoy yourself!
Baby & Child Essentials
We do supply a starter pack that includes 2 rolls of toilet paper, 1 roll of paper towels, a dishwasher tablet, soap bar, dish soap, and laundry detergent for the first load.
