New York's Odd Inns and Unusual Places to Stay


New York's  Odd Inns  and Unusual Places to Stay -  Boathouse, Lighthouses, Haunted Inns and Yurts    

Thirty Mile Point Lighthouse in Golden Hill State Park, New York

Thirty Mile Point Lighthouse in Golden Hill State Park
Built in 1875, the light was operated by the U. S. Lighthouse Board until 1939 when control was transferred to the U. S. Coast Guard. Over the years, the light was lit by various methods, initially oil, followed by kerosene, a coal fired steam generator and finally municipal electricity in 1903. With its original 3rd order Fresnel lens, the 70' high light was visible 18 miles into Lake Ontario. Upon assuming control, the Coast Guard enlarged the keepers quarters to house both the keeper and assistant as well as their families. . The facility was decommissioned in 1958 and sat vacant for nearly 40 years. Today, after extensive renovation by Friends of Thirty Mile Point in conjunction with the State of New York, the lighthouse tower, keepers quarters, fog signal building, outhouse and coal building are all open to the public. Also on the grounds are two original kerosene storage houses and the carriage building.

Glenora Wine Cellars Entrance

History of Glenora Winery and Inn
When the Farm Winery Act of 1976 was passed, Gene Pierce, along with Eastman Beers, Edward Dalrymple, and Howard Kimble seized the opportunity to open the winery on Seneca Lake. Glenora Wine Cellars produced 5000 cases and received acclaim in wine circles when its initial vintage won several medals at the New York State Fair wine competition. These visionaries watched their farm winery grow to a commercial producer and win recognition in Wine Spectator as one of the world’s top wineries. Today, Glenora Wine Cellars is owned by Gene Pierce and Scott Welliver, who have overseen the creation of the 30 room Inn and the Veraisons Restaurant, which offers guests from around the world the finest accommodations and cuisine in the Finger Lakes.   Complete Story

Borland House is proud to be a featured chapter in Linda Zimmermann's most recently published book, "Ghost Investigator: Back to the Light". Step back in time into a world of secrecy, intrigue, and above all, discretion! The author writes, "it is always the mystery of a haunting that I find most tantalizing, and the Borland House offers a myriad of tantalizing mysteries on every floor and in every room." "I'm very glad that Carol and Bill are now the owners of this place. They have carefully and beautifully restored and decorated their home in a manner which must please all the former residents as well as delight any future guests, and they view all of the fascinating history and personalities involved with their home with the utmost respect."  Complete Story and Photos
