CANANDAIGUA — The Lake House on Canandaigua received top marks from Travel + Leisure magazine’s 10 Best Resort Hotels in New York State Wednesday. According to a release from the hotel, the resort placed first in the 10 best hotels in New York, and received additional high marks in the magazine’s other notable lists.

The resort also placed second in the Top 15 Resort Hotels in the Continental U.S. and 30th in the magazine’s Top 100 Hotels in the World.

Each ranking came from the magazine’s World’s Best Awards for 2021, with the winners being determined by reader’s opinions on hotels and resorts. Voters rated hotels on their facilities, location, service, food and overall value.

This isn’t the first time the resort has been honored by Travel + Leisure. The hotel was also featured in the magazine’s 2021 “It List” from earlier this year, an honor General Manager Simon Dewar referred to as being similar to the motion picture industry’s Academy Awards.
