Upstate New York’s Finger Lakes region is well-known for its natural beauty. Many people come here to experience the tranquil setting of our countryside and waters. Outdoor activities such as hiking, kayaking and boating are favorite ways for seeing the Finger Lakes, Finger Lakes National Forest, and the many waterfalls which grace this area. If you’ve come to New York’s Finger Lakes before, or you’re thinking about visiting for the first time, we also recommend an entirely different way to see this beautiful place… by hot air balloon!

The Liberty Balloon Company gives you a whole new perspective on the Finger Lakes. Each flight is about an hour and a half depending on location, wind, weather and other factors. Before each flight, passengers are briefed on what to expect. With the briefing, take off, flight, landing, post flight pack up and celebration, plus the drive back, the total experience takes between 3 and 4 hours. And what an experience it is!

Everyone aboard gets fantastic panoramic views. Especially during this time of year, you can see the tree tops in full fall color bordering the deep blue lakes and the curving horizon. Moving at a slow and peaceful pace up to 2,000 or 3,000 feet up, there’s no comparison to the view. As you slowly descend, the basket skims the tree tops — a truly unique way to experience the Finger Lakes autumn colors! Both sunrise and sunset flights are available. The season comes to a close at the end of October and reopens in May.

Although the company is based out of Rochester, NY, they have launch sites throughout Upstate New York including several around the Finger Lakes. In addition to balloon rides for groups, families, weddings and other celebrations, Liberty Balloon also offers gift certificates and services for corporate and educational events.

During your stay at our luxury Finger Lakes B&B, we will be happy to make the arrangements for you to experience a hot air balloon ride with Liberty Balloon. For more information and Frequently Asked Questions about their balloon packages, events, and programs, visit LibertyBalloon.com.

Here’s what some of our guests have had to say about their romantic anniversaries, honeymoons and getaways at our Finger Lakes Wine country inn:

My husband and I recently stayed at this fabulous B and B, for a 29th anniversary celebration! What a fabulous spot!! We loved our room, Serenity, and the entire property was above expectations! The house is so beautiful, with a wonderful dining room set for a fantastic breakfast! Very relaxing and special! The outdoor area, with Adirondack rockers set next to a pretty waterfall feature within a garden, was a great place to enjoy a glass of Red before dinner! …The bed was extremely comfortable, and the pillows and linens are super!! I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a bit of “special” in the midst of the everyday!!

My husband and I stayed here for our first year anniversary and it was amazing. The place looks exactly like the pictures on the website. We had breakfast delivered to our room and that was also incredible. The food was very good, Orange Cream French Toast, with fruit parfait beforehand. Excellent. Couldn’t have asked for more…
