The shoreline of Conesus Lake includes portions of the towns of Conesus, Geneseo, Groveland, and Livonia. Despite its modest size, Conesus is one of the most heavily populated Finger Lakes, largely due to the fact that the entire lake is served by public sewers and water, electricity, natural gas, and cable television access, and is within a short drive of New York’s third-largest city (Rochester). Although seasonal cottages still make up a noteworthy percentage of the lake’s dwellings, approximately 65% of the lake’s residents now live here throughout the year.
