The Perfect Getaway - Lizzie's Cabin

This past weekend I stayed at my family’s log cabin, and it was incredible to say the least.

Lizzie’s Cabin is a getaway from all the craziness back home. Sitting on a 5-acre lot, this wooden home is as if it were out of a movie. And the best part, while you’re making coffee in the kitchen, you’ll most likely see the deer walk across the lawn. An additional bonus is that Canandaigua Lake is merely a two-minute walk down the street.

I’ve previously been to the cabin in the spring, summer, and winter, but I must say that going in the fall for the first time was breathtaking. The yellow, orange, and red leaves left me ultimately stunned.

Canandaigua, New York is an astonishing place – the perfect getaway. Although it's nothing like Miami’s city-like ways, it’s always guaranteed we’ll have the time of our lives. All around upstate New York are hundreds of breweries and wineries, the best ones are right by Canandaigua.

Due to the amount of breweries and wineries, there are limo/van services that take you around on a tour so you won’t be drinking and driving. Trust me, you don’t want to drive through those winding mountain streets after you’ve had some to drink.

Another one of my favorite things about this city is that a tasting at a brewery or winery is extremely inexpensive. They typically range from five to ten U.S. dollars. Each place varies form the last, so it also depends on the amount of drinks they allow per tasting.

If you’re looking for more touristic activities, Canada is just an hour and a half North. With the convenience of the cabin being so close, I have had the opportunity to visit the Niagara Falls since I was a little girl. Nonetheless, each time I visit, it seems to get all the more breathtaking.

I highly recommend staying at Lizzie’s Cabin if you’re looking for a getaway and a great vacation.
