We had a incredible stay at Paradise on the Lake Bed and Breakfast. The house is cozy, clean and very comfortable. Garey is an excellent host that provided a delicious (yet different) breakfast each morning and accommodated our dietary restrictions. Would definitely go back!

There's a reason this is a top pick in Geneva for bed and breakfasts. Garey was very hospitable, flexible and runs a really nice b&b with a wonderful view of the lake. The breakfasts are excellent. Can't think of any cons. Highly recommended.

We stayed 2 nights at Paradise on the Lake in Geneva, NY. We were greeted at the door by the host, who immediately assisted with luggage and provided information on restaurants and sights in the area. Great breakfasts and conversation both mornings we stayed. Both evenings we spent the early evening enjoying the beautiful sunsets over Seneca Lake. A very... More

We very much enjoyed our visit to Paradise on the Lake. Not too far from Geneva, it has a choice lakefront location on the east side of Seneca Lake, just south of Bottomless Brewery and Ventosa Vineyards.

This was my first visit to Paradise on the Lake. The owner created a very comfortable atmosphere, making it easy to enjoy a relaxing weekend. With 2 large decks facing Lake Seneca you are sure to enjoy the view morning to night. The room was spacious (with an adjoining bathroom) and a cozy queen sized bed. I will definitely return!
