POSTPONED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS. WE’LL RESCHEDULE SOON!
Have you ever been to the Finger Lakes? If not, you are in for such a treat with our first all-gals group trip of 2020! Rachel and I discovered the Finger Lakes region in central New York when we spoke at a blogger conference there in 2018. The next year, we went back to film an episode of The Jet Sisters, and fell in love! We knew that we had to not only tell people about the Finger Lakes via our series, but that eventually we wanted to bring a group of women there ourselves to experience what we found.
So we’re doing it! We’ve lined up our favorite experiences from the past two visits and sprinkled them into the most fun long weekend ever! We’ll focus most of our trip around two of the area’s 11 long, narrow lakes, Seneca and Keuka. We’ll spend three beautiful summer nights at one of our favorite properties in the region. We’ll do yoga with goats, we’ll make our own glass sculptures and yes, we’ll test out quite a few of the Finger Lakes famous wines.
In case you hadn’t noticed, this adventure is for ladies only – sorry fellas! And, if you bring your real-life sister, we’ll throw in a bottle of local wine to toast to your awesome sisterhood.

Our Home Base in The Finger Lakes
Imagine a lakeside retreat with bonfires every night, cozy rooms and delicious farm-to-table cuisine. That’s Plum Point Lodge! We filmed our show here and knew it would be perfect for everything this trip is about: late night chats by the fire, delicious cuisine, local wine, sunrises on the lake and new experiences with new friends.
Getting to the Finger Lakes
The Finger Lakes are within easy driving distance of many major cities. New York City, Toronto, Washington DC and Pittsburgh are within a five hour drive, so we anticipate many of our Wine Weekend guests will drive.
If you’re flying to the Finger Lakes, our ground transportation will pick up at Elmira Corning (ELM). We have a trusted travel agent we can recommend to coordinate flights if you like.

Cheers to you! There’s a $500 non-refundable deposit required to reserve your space. We expect to sell out and space is limited to the first 10 ladies who sign up.
Once we receive your deposit, you’ll receive a confirmation email, invitation to our private Facebook group and a form to fill out to help us get to know you. We will be there every step of the way to answer questions and make you feel comfortable traveling with us. If anything, we’ll probably over-prepare you for the trip – we like to cross our Ts and dot our Is!

First step, register here, then complete your payment below.
I want to go, but I don’t drink. Is this trip for me?
Absolutely! While we’ll be tasting wine and visiting wineries, partaking is not required. You don’t have to drink to have a blast with The Jet Sisters, so if you’re not a wine person, that’s 100% ok.
Can I room with a friend?
Of course! Let us know on your information sheet when you book if you have a preferred roommate. And if you’re traveling solo, don’t worry. We’ll pair you with another solo traveler based on the info you share with us at booking.
How active is this trip?
This trip will feature mild athletic experiences like hiking and goat yoga. You can expect to meander a couple of miles a day at most. Everything is optional of course, so if there’s anything that seems like too much, we can make other arrangements for you during those activities.
Do you offer payment plans?
We can! Email us at thejetsisters @ gmail.com.
Why is travel insurance required?
For everyone’s safety! We’ve had to make claims in the past on everything from flight reimbursements due to hurricane season to broken cameras due to bicycle accidents. We like Allianz.
Is there an age requirement?
Can I have my own room?
Yes! The single supplement price is $2,000. Singles are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
What if I need a refund?
The $500 deposit is non-refundable, and balances are due 90 days before departure. No exceptions! Here’s our refund policy:
- 90+ days before departure: 100% refund less deposit
- 30-90 days before departure: 50% refund less deposit
- 30 days or less before departure: 0% refund
Is there a waiting list?
Yes! We expect our trips to sell out quickly but we’ll keep a first-come, first-served waitlist just in case. Email us at thejetsisters @gmail.com to add your name to the wait list.
