We don't drink, so wineries are out. We would love a hotel with a view of one of the lakes.

The one where Dooneese and her sisters are performing, of course.

Just whatever you do, ease into it, take your time, one by one. It takes time to get all of the fingers lakes in.

If you don't drink wine what is the point of going to the Finger lakes? If it is for the scenic beauty go to the adirondacks.

Ithaca for the boys or Seneca Falls for the women's rights history.

Skaneateles is definitely cheaper

Watkins Glen for Motorsport
Letchworth Gorge State Park for nature.

The Mirabeau in Skaneateles is really nice and has a spa, the Sherwood Inn is nice and it's a little cheaper. The best towns are Ithaca, Canandaigua, Skaneateles. With Ithaca probably offering the most culturally. Geneva on the Lake is supposed to be nice, but it looks heavy on the Victorian Grandma decor. There is plenty of natural beauty to be had there, especially as the leaves turn. Most all of Upstate NY is gorgeous, rural and unspoiled.

Fuck the racetrack at Watkins Glen, the actual Watkins Glen park itself is amazing.

Watkins Glen is very nice, even if you don't like Nascar races. The State Park at the Glen is gorgeous and there is a hotel right on the water.
Ithaca is a short drive north. In Ithaca I recommend the Johnson Art Museum at Cornell and, up Cayuga a bit to the west, Taughannock Falls State Park for a great gorge hike and spectacular views. The Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca still offers a great menu of (mostly) vegetarian and vegan dishes; Maxie's Supper Club near the inlet does very good cajun-type fare.
Skaneateles is tiny and snobby, in my opinion, and I'm not sure any of the inns offer lake views. It's full of retired lawyers from Syracuse and aging trust-funders from five counties. But if you're into fine dining and spa-type stuff, that's the place to be.

R18 Skaneateles isn't really snobby. I have friends that live there and people are actually pretty nice. Most people Upstate whether moneyed or not are pretty friendly. The Sherwood has lake views.
Ithaca will offer you the most variety. I am thinking of someday buying a home there.
