Weddings in the Beautiful Finger Lakes Region
Getting married is not cheap but it does not have to be such a costly affair either! Here in the Finger Lakes both you, your families and your guests will experience a memorable day together in Upstate New York. There are numerous outdoor wedding locations and a myriad of wedding venues on the Seneca lake wine trail for you both to get married at and destination to enjoy your honeymoon as well.
Regrettably, as a result of the complaints and objections of Ruth and Jim Hundertmark, owners of the Lacey Magruder winery which adjoin the Cobtree estate, we are no longer permitted to allow our property to be used as a venue to hold weddings or wedding receptions. In 2013 these winery owners directly orchestrated a local campaign against our business which was successful in persuading the town of Geneva planning board and the zoning board of appeals to stop Cobtree from hosting such outdoor receptions.
This despite the fact that the town code enforcement officer had previously allowed Cobtree to hold such outdoor functions since 2006!
Although we think this is despicable behavior by a local business towards fellow business owners as ourselves, as well as by the town of Geneva officials, who clearly do not support local tourism, the local service industry or evidently, do not like the idea of a small local business flourishing, there is absolutely nothing we can do about it!
We do however offer our accommodations for wedding parties to stay in so please read on!
In planning that “big day” you have decided to get wed in the Finger Lakes Region. You now need to find accommodations with extensive grounds and gardens that can offer you and your guests an inexpensive and scenically beautiful location overlooking the Western shores of Seneca Lake. Cobtree is the perfect choice for this.
Here we offer 10 premier self catering vacation rental homes with a total of 32 bedrooms and sleeping up to 88 guests. Here you can experience a safe, peaceful and tranquil location with plenty of parking space. Also, there are 5 campfire areas, bocce and horse-shoes, play forte for kids, woodland walks and stunning views over the Western Shore of Seneca Lake, right on the Seneca Lake wine trail and most importantly, Cobtree offers the Best Value For the Money for this type of large or small group accommodations anywhere in the Finger Lakes Region.
Cobtree is also nearby to the Belhurst Castle and the Geneva on the Lake Resort 5 miles North on route 14.
We are proud to be able to recommend to you a number of local businesses that will be able to furnish you with everything you will need to make this special day a memorable one for both you and your guests.
In addition to the propane gas BBQ units supplied as standard with each property rental together with free propane refills, we now have available for guests use a 6ft long charcoal BBQ unit with a 30 inch wide stainless steel grill offering a massive 2160 inches of cooking area.
