|BUFFALO, NY–The Harbor Hotel Collection’s Apple Days returns from September 7 – October 15, 2021 at three AAA Four Diamond waterfront hotels: Chautauqua Harbor Hotel on Chautauqua Lake, Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel in the Finger Lakes region and 1000 Islands Harbor Hotel on the shores of the Saint Lawrence River. Apple Days celebrates apple picking season in Upstate New York with seasonal amenities, such as apples and fresh cider at check-in, and special menu items featuring delicious apple-inspired dishes and signature cocktails. Guests will receive a list of nearby orchards they can visit for apple picking.|
Autumn is a glorious season for a road trip to all three destinations. A scenic three-hour drive through peak foliage separates Chautauqua Lake from Watkins Glen and from Watkins Glen to 1000 Islands – with many interesting stops, natural wonders, and historic attractions in between. A sample road trip itinerary can be found at the link here. Travelers who visit two hotels on consecutive nights will get a portable mini-cooler stuffed with goodies for the drive.
