Bristol Harbour - Finger Lakes Weddings, Lodge, Dining and Golf

Our Story

Since the opening of Bristol Harbour's Robert Trent Jones Championship Golf Course in 1972, Bristol Harbour has grown to include a restaurant, cafe, 31-room hotel, and has become a premier Finger Lakes wedding venue. Please read our story below.

Bristol Harbour Lodge & Golf Club has a long history in the South Bristol and Canandaigua Lake area. In 1972, the property began as a golf course developed by renowned architect Robert Trent Jones. It quickly grew to include a restaurant, lodge and banquet space. We purchased Bristol Harbour in January 2016 with plans to give it a little TLC - Todd and Laura Cook.

Our family was drawn to Canandaigua Lake when we found our dream lake home here fifteen years ago. The Cook family has experienced the joy of the water bringing people together and wants Bristol Harbour to offer that same enjoyment to every guest. We believe there is something about the way the mountains cradle the lake that takes your breath away and makes Bristol Harbour a special place for all.

Our wish is to embrace the fresh energy of family ownership to revitalize the place where so many people feel a connection. Our vision is the rustic appeal of the property, while continuing to enhance the beauty and service provided to you, our guest.

We hope you feel the peace, beauty, and relaxation that Bristol Harbour Lodge & Golf Club is known for when you step onto our property. Whether you are here to play a round at our golf course, experience our cuisine, relax at our lodge, or host your special event or meeting with us – we welcome you.

Kind Regards,
Todd & Laura Cook
