In case you don't get any replies with more info specifically re Canandaigua Lake, we are touring the state in August too, and spending a couple of days in Finger Lakes, but in the Ithaca area, at the bottom of one of the other lakes. Might be too far east for you, but you could take a look at some of the state parks - they sound lovely and that's what we plan to do. eg Watkins Glen at bottom of Seneca Lake. And West of you is Letchworth State Park (which we probably won't get too, but you could potentially do en route to Niagara?) http://nysparks.state.ny.us/
I gather there are also wine tours in the region if you are interested in that sort of thing. Have a great trip! Can't wait for mine.
