Located on the east side of Cayuga Lake, some folks suggested we visit this place for their fall festival. So we stopped by. Ehhh...this place did not thrill us. It is a former estate turned humongous shopping place. Hoity toity collectibles fill room after room. We gave it a quick run through and left.
Here's what their brochure says:
An internationally acclaimed design and manufacturing firm where a complete home furnishings collection is handcrafted by over 200 artisans in a converted 19th century dairy farm setting. Tours available!
What to buy: Decorative items for your home or for gifts.
What to pay: to give you an idea how expensive this place is: garden gloves--$32.00
cell phone holder- $30.00, tote bags- $200-300
or, how would you like to spend $68 for a small pet feeding dish?

Himrod is rated in the top 15% of safe places to visit in New York State. The only repetitive crime they have is vandalism and larceny (property theft). These are normally against commercial businesses and do not usually directly affect tourists. About the biggest danger a tourist has is a cold from tenting out in the damp mornings.
Still you should be smart and lock your valuables away and keep your car doors locked when you are away from the car. A couple of simple actions that will insure that you enjoy a safe and pleasant visit to Himrod.

Miscellaneous: We forgot to bring wine glasses! If you don't mind buying a few souvenir glasses at a winery you visit, no problem. Else wise, remember to pack your own. Unless drinking out of a proper wine glass matters naught to you. Our motel/restaurant proprietor gladly loaned us the use of his for the time being.
Binoculars were handy for scanning the lake.

Fondest memory: After a day out and about, hiking, scenic driving, and visiting wineries, each evening we would take out to the dock, wine and snacks and enjoy the view of the lake. ahhhh....bliss.
