Experience the Finger Lakes' leading independent living senior community. Experience the good life.

Albert Einstein once said, “The most beautiful gift of nature is that it gives one pleasure to look around and try to comprehend what we see.”

At Ferris Hills at West Lake, you’re surrounded by beauty. With 57 acres of wooded countryside overlooking Canandaigua Lake, winding paved trails and lush gardens, the setting is a feast for the senses.

The newest addition is Rayburn Hall, where Ferris Hills hosts performers, lecturers and other special guests, not to mention some of its best parties. Just outside is the gazebo, where the Sunset Serenades series features popular local bands each summer and residents gather for barbecues and classic car shows.
