Welcome to "The Coolest Small Town in America" (as voted in a national poll by Budget Travel)! Come and see why the saying is often said: "There's always something happening in Hammondsport!"
Centrally located in the second largest wine region in the United States (watch your back, California), Hammondsport & Keuka Lake eagerly await your arrival. If it's just a trip for the day, or we’re your summer getaway — the saying rings true in our region of wine and brew!
Peacefully situated in a valley with splendid lake vistas on both sides of “crooked” Keuka Lake, Hammondsport offers the perfect destination escape for families, friends, and lovers alike -- anyone looking to get lost among our wineries, breweries, distilleries, cideries, hiking trails, cycling routes, historic museums, and so much more.
After exploring the absolute best stretch of the Finger Lakes Trail network, or when your cycling tour along one of the most scenic routes in North America, go ahead and rent a boat for the day as you set sail to one of our lakeside restaurants with dock access for truly exquisite waterfront dining during summer on Keuka. Later in the year, the autumn traveler will witness the scenic surroundings transform into majestic fall foliage — the perfect backdrop for visiting one of Hammondsport’s two renowned museums: The Glenn H. Curtiss Museum of Natural History with a focus on aviation, and the Finger Lakes Boating Museum now at home in the historic Taylor Winery complex.
