Upstate New York is dotted with small towns. From the Vermont border to the shores of Lake Erie, little hamlets and villages exist across the countryside like freckles on a sun-kissed face. All make you feel as if you’re returning home after a long journey searching for something new. Towns like Brockport are no exception. Curl up with a new book at one of the hotels near Brockport, NY and call this place home for a few days.
Greet the new morning with a leisurely stroll along the Erie Canal Heritage Trail where eastern bluebirds and rock doves provide a nice soundtrack for your morning wander. It runs for 360 miles, but you only need to walk a few to get your new morning routine started. Veer into town and find yourself sipping a cold Josette’s strawberry blonde at Stoneyard Brewing Company. Life suddenly becomes simpler when you enjoy a freshly poured pint on the banks of the Erie Canal. Retire back to one of our hotels in Brockport, NY for some much needed rest and relaxation. But don’t get too comfortable back at your accommodation. There’s still plenty of daylight for a leisure cruise through the canal in an old wooden canoe. Let your worries drift away with the current as the New York sun sets behind the trees.
Once you’ve collected yourself, slip behind the wheel of one of our Brockport rental cars and make the 65-mile trek west to our fabulous hotels in Buffalo. Follow the smell of Frank’s RedHot sauce through the doors of the Anchor Bar on Main Street. It was in the kitchen of this Western New York landmark that the delectable snack of spicy chicken wings was conceived. The cayenne pepper based dressing dripping off the meat covered bones is a food experience you won’t soon forget, especially during your drive back “home” to Brockport hotels.
Dorothy once said, “There’s no place like home”, but sometimes the best home is on the road. Especially if that road leads to a small village in Upstate New York.
