Looking for suggestions for a Sunday to Wednesday trip

My husband and I have not been to this area. We plan to stay a Sunday through Wednesday during the first week of August. We are looking for recommendations for lodging that would be nice, romantic and with character as well as excellent food. Wineries are not our top priority but Awesome places to photograph are. Any suggestions?

The gorgeous state parks near Ithaca (Buttermilk Falls, Taughannock Falls, Robert Treman) provide great photo ops as does Watkins Glen state park in Watkins Glen. If coming 8/7-8./10, be aware that there is a huge NASCAR race in Watkins Glen so the town will be packed and lodging non-existent in that area.

Drives around any of the lakes will provide great photo ops as well.

As far as lodging goes your preferences provide a tall order without knowing your budget and preferred style of accomodation. But try these suggestions for a start: Aurora Inn (Aurora), Belhurst (Geneva), or the Pleasant Valley Inn (Hammondsport). All are away from Watkins Glen as availability on your exact travel dates may be impacted by the NASCAR race there as previously noted.

Thanks for the suggestions, I will check them out and hopefully we will not be greatly affected by the race as we will be out of the area by early morning on the 6th.
