Letchworth State Park Bed & Breakfasts

Letchworth State Park Bed & Breakfasts
Known as the "Grand Canyon of the East, " the 14,000 acre Letchworth State Park is located along the Genesee River in Northwestern New York. The park's main attraction is a 17-mile gorge, 600 feet deep in some places, with three major waterfalls and several rapids surrounded by dense forests. The dramatic scenery makes balloon and plane rides over the park a popular activity. Summer activities include hiking the 66 miles of trails, whitewater rafting, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, and fishing. In the wintertime visitors can enjoy snow tubing, ice skating and cross-country skiing. Accommodations include one bed and breakfast inn located on the park grounds, and several bed & breakfasts in nearby towns and villages.
