About Theresa Woodland

My husband & I have had a summer vacation cottage on Seneca Lake for the last 40 years. We had been living in southwest Florida and managing our resort on Longboat Key and summering at our cottage on Seneca Lake. We sold our resort 2008. Due to family we moved to Watkins Glen and bought this estate house at the top of the hill with 5 acres and a beautiful lake view. We also bought a local marina (Frog Hollow Marina) that also needed lots of TLC. So we went from the good life as they say of retirement to a life of having fun working. The house was totally cool but needed lots of TLC. We contemplated a B&B as the main house has 6 bedrooms/ 4 bathrooms and two 1/2 bathrooms. The house is a 5 year project and every year it remains a 5 year project. The guest quarters apartment had not been used for many of years by the previous owners so after deciding not to do a B&B we fixed up the Guest Quarters Apartment for a vacation rental. This year (2015) we are adding The West Wing Guest Quarters consisting a of bedroom/sitting room/bathroom. Our two separate quarters are a great place to hang out when visiting Watkins Glen and the surround area. Feel like you are in the country but just walk down the hill and you are in the heart of The Village of Watkins Glen. We love that we are so close to everything but so far away.

Theresa Woodland purchased this apartment in 2011

Just wonderfu!

  • 5 of 5

This is just a wonderful place. The cottage is just beautiful. Furnishings are lovely and everything you need for a comfortable stay is there for you. The cottage sits above the lake with a lovely view of the hills and countryside..and the lake. Theresa welcomed us..with her welcome pets..and she was warm and engaging. She had lots of good tips for seeing the area and recommendations for restaurants. I just can't say enough good things about how relaxing and at home we felt here..really did not want to leave. I hope we can visit again.

Our stay at Rosehill

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I recently stayed at Rosehill for 3 nights. We had a great stay and loved the apartment. It was the perfect size for the two of us and had a nice small kitchen with a microwave, toaster oven, and a hot plate. Theresa was nice enough to provide us with some groceries in the fridge. The apartment was very cozy and clean upon arrival. Great view of the lake, we enjoyed sitting outside on the patio drinking wine. They also have a cute little dog Bailey who likes to play fetch for all the dog lovers out there. I would highly recommend for everyone in the future. Great location, about 1/2 mile from downtown Watkins glen

"Without the chores"

This is the last full day of our week at Rose Hill Eatate and we are still mesmerized by the view. The Woodland's have thought of everything. Just pack your toothbrush and some good walking shoes (for the slow climb up the hill) and you will be all set. A long autumn weekend here may be in our "not to distant" future. We are already spreading the word to friends & family and we haven't even packed yet.

P.S. Hanging out with Bailey & Tigger on the back porch made this week even more fun for us. Many Thanks to Theresa & Ed!

Fantastic vacation and great rental

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at the Rose Hill and it was wonderful. Theresa and Ed made it a great week from the items left in the fridge to their suggestions on places to visit and eat. It was a beautiful place and we loved the porch and sitting out in the morning and evening and seeing the lake. It was really peaceful after our days out sightseeing. It is a wonderful location to do day trips. We also enjoyed play ball with Bailey in the evenings. Thank you again for opening your rental and giving us a great place to vacation.

Lovely Watkins Glen Race Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Rose Hill Estate Guest Quarters was the perfect fit for our long weekend in Watkins Glen. We were so impressed with the beautiful location, views and easy access to the area!! Theresa and Ed were thoughtful and delightful hosts. The guest cottage is charming and comfortable, and we did enjoy all special touches of the goodies in the fridge. Theresa also gave us great recommendations on local places to visit and avoid. We would certainly stay there again!!
