                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: Hello, I am the innkeeper and developer of Vacation Rental Finger Lakes. I have lived and worked in Seattle, Coastal Alaska, Southern California, The Florida Keys and of course here, locally in the Watkins Glen area. I've traveled to Europe, Mexico and Canada and stayed in a wide variety of accommodations and have grown our business offering a combination of amenities that I could never seem to find anywhere else. I'm a forex and futures trader, inventor and barefoot runner. My past experiences as scuba instructor, innkeeper, restauranteur, Coast Guard navigator, woodworker, map maker, graphic artist and webmaster and owner of numerous service related business have taught me to use common sense and pay attention to details. I hope you enjoy your stay and appreciate the extra mile that we go for you here at Finger Lakes Guesthouses and Vacation Homes.

                      Why the Owner Chose Watkins Glen:
                      I LOVE The Finger Lakes and Watkins Glen, and felt that it was the ideal location to build NYS first Huge Vacation Home and All-Inclusive Wedding Venue. I have traveled extensively and, as a guest myself, I know what people look for. As an innkeeper, I understand that everyone has different priorities and preferences. I've always wished I could find an Inn or Vacation Rental that provided everything we do here. I felt that, as the innkeeper, if I provided a huge amount of high quality amenities, I'm sure to make more guests happy... well, it appears to be working :)
