Geocache Description:

BEAUTIFUL LAKESIDE VILLAGE

THIS CACHE, PLACED IN JULY 2004 IS THE OLDEST ACTIVE CACHE IN HAMMONDSPORT

Hammondsport, the champagne center of America, is located at the southern end of Lake Keuka. Hundreds of acres of vineyards are clustered on the hillside and the moderating influence of the lake, coupled with ideal soil conditions, produce vintage grapes that are pressed and aged into some of the world’s finest wines and champagnes. Nine wineries rest in the valley and along the shores of the lake. Five offer public tours and tastings, with cordial hospitality renowned for the Finger Lakes. Downtown Hammondsport has many boutique shops for visitors to pick up wine-country souvenirs, and no visit is complete without enjoying a ride on the Keuka Maid, and a view from the water of the famous “Chapel on the Mount

Stroll through the nostalgic village boutiques, antique shops and unique stores all situated around the picturesque Village Square and Historic Gazebo.

This is a micro cache, please bring your own pen for the logbook within. No trade items please.
