The Castle on Glen is located on a quiet residential street. There is so much to do in the surrounding areas. The wineries are only 45 minutes away and now include breweries and distilleries. Grappa anyone? If you enjoy antiques, you must visit Antique Revival. Restaurants: Charlies Cafe is only about two miles away and serves a great atmosphere and simple American food for lunch and dinner; closed Mondays. Taninos is worth the 15-20 min drive for brick-oven pizza and great Italian cuisine. Aviation your thing? Be sure to take a drive up to Harris Hill to watch and maybe take a ride in a glider. This is Mark Twain country and Elmira College has his writing studio which is available for tours. There are brochures and directions in the house.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I love to be pampered so it gives me great joy to create beautiful, comfortable spaces with little surprises of wonderment. Prior to owning a guest house, I was a software guru, a jet pilot, and a journalist. Now I focus on keeping a balance between work and play. If there is anything you need or want, please let me know so I can make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

Why the Owner Chose West Elmira, NY, USA:
The Castle was built in 1927 with superior craftsmanship including heavy iron hinges on all the solid wood doors. The house is furnished with antiques and the best and most comfortable memory foam-topped beds. You may never want to leave.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It's a castle! In case you're attending an event at the Elmira Country Club, the Castle is backed up to it, so you can simply walk home.
