Recent Watkins Glen property reviews

  • Great place for a large group!

    "We went up for the "Deck the Halls" wine tour. We had a group of 10 and needed a home that could accommodate. This home did that perfectly for us. It has great charm and character. It was further from the lake than we expected, but since we were going in the winter, that did not matter to us. If you are going in the summer you may want to look into that further. But for all of our needs, it was a perfect match. I also saw others posting things on here about security deposits. I can say that we received our full security deposit back within days of our departure. Thanks Michelle!"

  • Perfect Family Rental

    "This home was perfect for us. My daughter was being married at the Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel, 2 blocks away. We had 8 staying here, including a 6 year old and a 9 month old. Crib, stroller, toys, games all were clean and in good condition. We had a pre-wedding bridal shower and it was great for entertaining 20+ guests for that. After the wedding, we enjoyed some 'winding down' time around the propane fire pit. The view as pretty; the house was perfect. Thank you!"

  • Great price. Lots of room. Great location.

    "The apartment is large, with three bedrooms, two full baths, and a kitchen. It was very clean and everything you need is provided. Sue was there to greet us and gave us a personal tour of the space. I would highly recommend the apartment. It is an ideal location for visiting the Finger Lakes wineries and is just down the road form Watkins Glen State Park."

  • Perfect Seneca Lake Cabin for Us

    "A unique century cabin with amazing views and access to the lake. It is, as billed, very rustic - and we loved that and enjoyed every minute there. Still, this is NOT the cabin for everyone (see further below). The two porches virtually hanging over the lake were well-used and outfitted with comfortable (if not new) couches and chairs. Newer gas grill. The three, separate sleeping spaces were perfect for a 50s couple and two teen boys. The furnishings were charming and durable, and the kitchen has every possible dish, pot and utensil. We created a hot spot with a cell phone and had spotty internet access. Bring your own iPod and movies for the DVD player and stereo. The cabin has a complete game chest. The lakefront area is great for fishing (though we caught nothing!) and campfires, and the kayaks and canoe got a workout. The manager, Maureen, was a gem in every way, and we were glad to hear our local friends knew and liked the owners. The owners' daughter paid a visit while we were there, and she was friendly and interesting. Wineries line Route 14 to the north and south, and Watkins Glen is 10 minutes away. But any potential renter needs to make sure this is the safest and right spot for their group. I would NEVER bring child younger than 10 to this spot. The 60+-foot drop off to the lake is just off the front porch, and a ravine to the south is equally precipitous. 70+ stairs to the lake on a very durable staircase winded us and our older dogs, but were great exercise. Same steep climb if you just take a walk up the hill toward 14, and one car w/poor tires got stuck while we were there. The tiny kitchen is in a hallway and created bottlenecks. And the full bath is basically in the open area containing the steep, narrow stairs to the 2nd floor. SURPRISE if you step out of the shower or toilet without checking. Upstairs is another safety concern - an 18-inch chair rail around the steep staircase. One too many beers and, well... Still, the cabin is what it is, and we found it perfect. Doubt the owners could do anything more to ameliorate the downsides. We'll be back!"
