About Pulteney

Picturesque vineyards, winter skiing, and lakeside bliss: our Pulteney vacation rentals are waiting to host your most perfect Finger Lakes getaway yet.

Where is Pulteney, NY?

Keuka Lake was once called Crooked Lake, and its name even means “lake with an elbow” in the language of the Seneca people. Of all the Finger Lakes, Keuka is the only one with a unique Y-shape resulting from a fork on its north end. And nestled on the shores of the west fork is the charming town of Pulteney.

Things to do in Pulteney, NY

It likely comes as no surprise that visitors flock to Pulteney to experience the incredible outdoors. In the summertime, the shallow lake waters are warm and perfect for swimming, or you can explore them year-round by kayak, canoe, or boat. You can even visit nearby Seneca Lake—the largest of the Finger Lakes—via the seven-mile Keuka Lake Outlet Trail any time of year. Here you’ll find trails perfect for running, snowshoeing, and mountain biking.

Just moments from our Pulteney vacation homes is Keuka Lake State Park. If you’re searching for incredible views of the Finger Lakes wine country, look no further—these trails feature vistas of the nearby vineyards, hills, and of course Keuka Lake. Within the park’s 621 acres you’ll also find a lifeguarded swimming beach, boat launch, picnic areas, and playgrounds.

In the wintertime, Bristol Mountain Ski Resort is just 40 minutes away from our Pulteney vacation rentals. The whole family can enjoy 138 acres of terrain with trails for beginner, intermediate, and advanced skiers. Feel the exhilaration of the mountain’s 1,200-foot vertical drop, or try something new with an evening of night skiing. Never even worn a pair of skis before? No problem. The learning center offers lessons for groups of all sizes and ages.

When you’ve had your fill of the outdoors, plenty of charming small-town attractions await near your Pulteney vacation home. Spend a quiet moment at the historic Garrett Memorial Chapel, a beautiful stone building open for viewing several days a week. Or taste wines at one of the dozens of vineyards such as Dr. Konstantin Frank Winery, where you can sip pinot from your perch as the sun goes down over the lake.

How will you spend your Finger Lakes vacation? Choose from exploring the national parks, small towns, or wineries—or all three—when you book one of our Pulteney vacation rentals. Find your next getaway today.
