Four of us stayed, two separate rooms (my fiance & i were in #17)and my sister & her husband were in #18). Quaint, warm, friendly, you would have thought we were family or long time visitors of Rainbow Cove from the welcome we received! The room was comfortable and best of all NO PHONES, NO RADIOS to distract from the scenery and quiet. #17 has a double bed( i think that is what it was?) plus a day bed which opens up, small table, couple of chairs around it, dresser with three drawers, t.v. which sits on top of a mini fridge. closet space set back beside each door; nice bathroom, which has a "pocket" door which separates the toilet/shower area from the sink. Very comfortable! Both rooms are located in the bottom part of the two storey section; it was great to be able to have a front and back door, so you didn't have to walk around to get to your car. There is a small games room, which also had a pop machine and ice machine which was ALWAYS full! Joined in thru that room was a small work out room with some machines and in behind in a separate building was ping pong & shuffle board. The pool was not open but nice setup, towards the back. There are actually four buildings; as you pull into the area, towards the right is a low, single storey building of rooms; centre is the office and restaurant and sweeping towards the left is the two storey section of rooms. Each room has a couple chairs and small table right out front of your area plus there are some picnic tables set towards the two section part. More tables are set up by the gazebo and area where the bon fire is set each and every evening! The dock is a large "u-shape" again with lots of chairs, loungers and wooden deck swings. You are also welcome to bring your own chairs and relax!!! There is also horse shoes as well as basketball area set up. At the time of our visit, which was this past long w/end, breakfast was the only meal being served, after Memorial Day weekend Jeff (owner along with his wife) explained that the restaurant will be opened for all three meals from then till the time the place shuts down for the season. It is easily located between all the wonderful Seneca Lake wineries, close the the "Windmill" facility (which is approximately 150 vendors of anything and everything including some wineries, GREAT FOOD and shopping for every family member). The Rainbow Cove Motel is relaxing and comforting!
We couldn't have been at a better spot; waking up to peacefulness every day, greeted by any staff member with a warm smile, friendly hello and after a long day of being in the car, grabbing your beverage of choice, heading to the dock and relaxing! We met so many wonderful people from all over, whom also discovered this "little gem" tucked away but yet close enough to many of the Finger Lake attractions! The breakfast was great, the coffee was great and oue servers (which i should have caught their names better, my apologies WERE GREAT!) Many contributing factors make a great place and RAINBOW COVE HAS THEM ALL!!!!
Fishing (licence for the year not badly priced) came be done off of the dock or by renting a boat. My fiance and brother-in-law actually went out for two different days but hired (a great pick as per Jeff's knowledge) the services of Skip; what a guy...charming and definitely knew the water ways of Seneca Lake. As per the guys, even if you don't catch any fish just being in the same company with Skip adds to the fun associated to Rainbow Cove.
The four of us LOVED THIS PLACE, that we have already re-booked for next year!! My room and a few others have mini fridges in them. Breakfast opens up @ 8:00am so because we are all early risers, brought our small coffee makers so we could sit out on the dock or in front of our room enjoying the sun coming up!!
Thank you for an awesome weekend from start to finish!!! Margarita5040
