CANANDAIGUA, N.Y. —     A long running hotel and restaurant on Canandaigua Lake will close while it undergoes renovations.  

The Inn on the Lake in Canandaigua is nearly 50 years old. 

Management says it will close in the fall and will remain closed until it reopens in the summer of 2020. 

The goal is to transform the place into what owners call a premier boutique inn and waterfront destination. 

"Our marketing strategy will be to pull in all the natural resources, including Canandaigua Lake, to cater to a very distinct group of people and we'll be very happy to be working with the local residents in making them happy," said Chris Burns, marketing director.

Some employees will stay on during the renovations.

More details on the project are expected to be released this spring.
