  • Sonnenberg Gardens & Mansion, a State Historic Park, is a place you should put on your calendar to visit during the summer. It is open daily from May through October. Here are some of their annual events:

    May - Mother's Day Tea
    June - Roses & Rose
    July and August - Moonlight stroll through the gardens with music
    August - Noon High Tea event (always a sold out event)
    It is about 50 acres of gardens and lawns.

    We enjoyed walking through the gardens in the evening while a musical group was playing on the front patio. The cost is a mere $10 and it goes to the maintenance of the property.

    Over 200 volunteers mow and keep the 50 acres looking great! They mow the lawns, weed the gardens, and tour people through the mansion.

    The Sonnenberg Gardens and Mansion is the gem of Canandaigua! The beautifully maintained grounds, including the different gardens and greenhouses are a real treat to tour during the warm months. If the gardens are a treat, then the mansion is the cherry on top of the tour. The mansion has many pieces of artwork displayed and many bedrooms that are set up in the time period in which the home was built.

    Most Saturday mornings during the summer months, the New York Wine and Culinary Center hosts a Farmer's Market cooking class. You meet the instructor at the Canandaigua Farmer's Market and find some fresh vegetables to make a wonderful meal with. After picking your vegetables you head back to the Wine and Culinary Center to prepare the meal.

  • If you grew up enjoying the summer fun at Canandaigua Lake, you would have fond memories of Roseland Park. It was located at the north end of the lake across from where the Hess Gas Station is and west of where you would go to board the Canandaigua Lady. Probably the most favorite and beautiful ride was the carousel which was later moved to the Galleria Mall in Syracuse when the amusement park was closed in the 1990's. Other features were the Skyliner, the Funhouse, the Penny Arcade, and, of course, the cotton candy concession. It provided fun times in the evening after spending the day on the water.
  • Canandaigua Lake offers many options for "carefree living" with several communities that include boat slips and access to the lake.

    - Holiday Harbor: 155 Condo's on approximately ten acres of land surrounding waterways that lead to the lake. The property was originally constructed as apartments and eventually converted to privately owned condos. There are 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units. There is a clubhouse, pool, tennis courts and an assigned boat slip for each home.
  • A much anticipated major new development along the northern shore of Canandaigua Lake has received the approvals the developers needed to begin construction soon. The project covers more than 21 acres of land. This will be a mixed use development to include retail, food service and other commercial space, as well as residential apartments and townhouses. If all goes as planned we expect to see construction begin in early 2015.

  • The historic boathouses now located on the west side of the City Pier were originally located along the shoreline of the lake near the entry of the current pier. The pier was completed in the early 1850's and the first boathouses were moved to the present location starting in 1887. Shortly thereafter the Northern Central Railway installed a railway to serve the steamboats that docked along the pier. During the early 1900's the boathouses were used primarily for storing boats, grapes and other farm products shipped via steamboats.

    In the 1960's there was a movement to get rid of the boathouses. They were referred to as an "eyesore". Again in the 1980's there was discussion regarding removing them to make way for additional marina dockage.

    Today they are a popular tourist attraction and are privately owned and used primarily for docking boats.
  • Just one visit to our beautiful lake and you’ll understand why the Seneca Indians named it “The Chosen Spot”. Canandaigua Lake is the fourth largest of the Finger Lakes and a great place for boating, fishing, swimming, sailing and much more. The lake itself is about 16 miles long and 1.5 miles wide, 17 square miles of pure beauty. Lakefront property comes at a premium. If you drive down the east or west side of Canandaigua Lake by car or by boat, you will find various sized homes from small seasonal one bedroom cottages to large, spectacular million dollar homes. After experiencing the beauty and all the lake has to offer, many visitors come back year after year. Some decide to stay and call it home. Even Humphrey Bogart spent several summers at his parents’ Canandaigua Lake cottage when he was a boy!

  • Rick Dean at Discovery Automotive has been in business for over 25 years. I've know him since high school and trust him for all my automotive needs. I bought my Mercury Mountaineer from him and it ran for over 235,000 miles thanks to his expert care and service. My 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe has over 200,000 miles and is still going strong! That's why I recommend Rick to all my family and friends!
