We came by boat from across Seneca Lake for dinner...prime rib night..it was wonderful! Great value. A step back in time... reminded us of times spent at lake resorts when we were kids! Well run. Great food. Family environment.. If we didn't already have a home on Seneca Lake we would try out the motel.

This was a special find on Seneca Lake (west side) near Plum Point. I joined a group of women at this resort for a getaway. It was perfect place to gather and spend some time together. The guest rooms are older but clean and served our needs. It is an older resort but well cared for. They have a pool,...

This is our second visit to Rainbow Cove in the past six years. We came back because we enjoyed our first visit, and our second was just as good. You do need to understand what this is - a quaint, simple, lakeside motel, kind of retro, but well priced, with a relaxing atmosphere. Rooms are small, with a small bathroom...

What a lovely spot to spend a night or two or three......Rainbow Cove is a quaint lakeside hotel that I have visited for the last 12 years for a weekend getaway......the older section has sidebyside rooms that have been remodeled. They are very simple but adequate and clean. You can sit outside on the chairs provided to visit with other...

Found this place by accident. Saw the vacancies sign on the main road and turned down to find motel right by the lake. Lucky to get a room as very popular with people who come year after year. Nothing fancy - just really friendly. Discovered shuffleboard - new to us. Were going to join folks round campfire but there was...

We stumbled upon this place on our way down the western side of Seneca Lake. We were looking for someplace to eat and we saw a sign. Motel and Restaurant. We took the short detour off of route 14 and pulled into a fantastic funky motel. Very clean and well kept. Also this place sits right on the lake. What...

We stayed just one night but would have stayed longer if we had other activities in the region. The Rainbow Cove is a little hard to find but not harder than most places right at the lake shore. It is literally a few feet away from the west side of Seneca Lake, south of Geneva and not far from Penn...

This past October was our 5th trip to Rainbow Cove, what a great time! The hosts, Jeff & Helen are always welcoming and warm, the place is tranquil and couldn't be happier as we descend down the winding road knowing we will soon be in a comfortable atmosphere, enjoyable food, great dock for boat & people watching and our home...

This hotel is a little hard to rate. The family that runs it are very nice. We had a group go in Oct. of 2013. This is not a fancy hotel. The rooms were clean and the bathroom was new. The TV was not a flat screen but some rooms do have them. Our room had a full size bed...

My wife & I went here for my birthday and enjoyed this property very much. We had a lake-view room as Seneca Lake is literally just across the yard. The owners & staff were friendly and made us feel welcome. The restaurant was packed with folks staying at the hotel but also from town residents which says a lot about...
