A New Lakeside Hotel Rises
HIMROD -- A new lakeside institution is growing just south of Geneva where work crews are starting to put the finishing touches on a year-long effort to revive what had been known as the Rainbow Cove Motel.
On Mother's Day in May, the newly renovated and renamed Plum Point Lodge on Seneca will open with a new look, room renovated from the studs out, and a new restaurant and events center featuring farm-to-table dishes. The video above traces the renovation step-by-step and includes some architectural renderings of what some of the final touches will be adding to Seneca's lakeside life.
Geneva Developer Dave Bunnell is leading a group of investors who are endeavoring to create a new "ground-zero'' for the Finger Lakes wine country. The new Plum Point Lodge -- its website is PlumPointLodgeFLX.com -- will include an events center, a restaurant, a wine shop as well as 31 guest rooms within a few feet of Seneca's shore.
