Sheldrake is located at the heart of Finger Lakes wine tasting. As a member of the Cayuga Wine Trail, we are within walking distance of wineries and restaurants, yet our waterfront location is quiet and peaceful. We are also adjacent to the Seneca Lake Wine Trail and over 100 wineries are within an hour of Sheldrake. It is a taster's paradise.
Our location, directly on the west shore of Cayuga Lake, provides easy access to the glacier formed, crystal clear water. Cayuga is 41 miles long and 430 feet deep.
Each of our rooms includes a private balcony overlooking the lake. Our private beach offers sunbathing, swimming, kayaking, rowing and paddle boating. Charter fishing can be easily arranged and boat launching is a short walk from the Inn. We even offer boat rides on our catamaran sport boat. You can tour the lake, go to lunch or even do
wine tasting, all by boat.
Silver Strand has been featured in Wine Spectator and Frommers, both of whom have been very complimentary to the region and its wines. Hiking, biking, and birding are also popular here. We offer complimentary use of bicycles and the highest waterfall east of the Mississippi is only 10 miles away. We also have 3 area golf courses and many antique shops.
Finger Lakes wine tasting and romantic getaways are our forté. Come join us and make it special!
