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

Perfect location with a fantastic view! Theresa was very thoughtful and left some snacks in the fridge. She checked in with us once to make sure we had everything we needed and then we didn’t see her again but we knew she was just a phone call away if we did. We enjoyed the view of the lake from the back patio. It’s definitely within walking distance from town but that hill is steep! We drove into town and never had an issue parking. Check out the state park while you’re there. We got some beautiful pictures. Only thing this VRBO is missing is a TV in the bedroom for us folks that need the TV noise to fall asleep. We brought a fan from home and that helped fill the silence. It was a great stay. I would (and did) recommend this place to family and friends!
This is a wonderful place to stay if you're looking to visit Watkins Glen and nearby areas. The back porch has a wonderful view of Seneca Lake and the place is far enough away to feel secluded, but also is within walking distance to the town (10 minute walk). Something that is very important to me when I decide to stay somewhere. You can also in walking distance of Watkins Glen State Park.
Also Theresa was a wonderful host. She called me before I came to just talk to me and tell me about the place and other things about watkins glen. Something you don't get alot now with everything online. She also came talk to me when I arrived and was very helpful and even told me about some places and things nearby that was interesting and that I needed to check out/visit. Places that don't automatically pop up on Google or trip advisor. This place and Watkins Glen made for a wonderful trip. Didn't know how beautiful upstate New York was until I came here. Top knotch experience!
Coffee and wine on the porch. What a view!
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
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
Home away from Home
"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!
Watkins Glen and the surrounding area will astound you with its beauty. Rides in the countyside will take your breath away. A must see is Watkins Glen State Park with its gorges and glens of cascading water. Visit the local wineries, breweries and cheese farms. For race car fans our local Watkins Glen International Race Track is continually running events all summer long. Summertime festivals most every week.
