Beautiful resort on Lake Canindaigua. Great hotel with Lakeview rooms. Fine dining and casual outside bar& restaurant. Currently closed for a total renovation. Will reopen in 2020. I highly recommend this hotel.

I think if you have a room on the lake side, you will have a view of the lake regardless of trees.

I was about 4 rooms away from the outdoor pool on ground/lakeside. I had a view of lake & day docking area. There are some large trees that add to the view
