Located at the northwest end of Conesus Lake, balloon rides from Deer Run Winery offer the perfect vantage point from which to enjoy the “Little Lakes” region of western New York. From this site you have the best chance to fly over Conesus Lake.  You may even experience a “splash ‘n dash” – where you skim the water during your ride.  Wherever the wind takes you, this is a beautiful location for a balloon ride in the Finger Lakes!

Prior to the flight, enjoy the quiet front porch of the winery; browse the shop, soak in the beautiful evening.  And when your ride is done, you may even schedule a private wine tasting.


We schedule morning and evening flights seven days per week, year-round.  So often, we can accommodate passenger groups even at short notice.  By using “small” four-passenger balloons, we are proud to offer a personal experience.  When you book with Liberty Balloon Company, you join no more than three other people in the gondola; or, you may reserve the entire balloon for your party with a private flight.  Yet because Carroll (dad), Lance (older son) and Lee (younger son) all are FAA-certified commercial hot air balloon pilots, we can fly up to three balloons per flight period.  So if you have a large group, we will accommodate up to twelve people for a ride.
