Property is located at the southern end of Seneca Lake within walking distance of town with shops, restaurants and bars, theater, bank, post office, parks, harbor, marina, churches and Catharine Valley Trail. Nearest grocery store is within a mile.

Drive the short distance to Watkins Glen State Park lower entrance to hike through the gorge with its many beautiful waterfalls.

There is lake swimming at Clute Park, Watkins Glen or Smith Memorial Park, Hector.

Visit the many wineries in the area for tastings and make stops along the cheese trail.

Watch fireworks from the front porch over July 4th and during the Italian Festival. Race fans will enjoy Watkins Glen International race track.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: When I was growing up my parents took us to Watkins Glen and we hiked through the gorge. I really enjoyed the waterfalls. Many years later my husband and I came back to celebrate a wedding anniversary. We walked through the gorge and it was as beautiful as I remembered it. After the gorge we stopped at Lakewood Vineyards and had our first ever wine tasting. That was about 15 years ago and we have been coming back ever since. We are always finding something new to do in the area. There are so many festivals and events that there are some we are still trying to find the time to attend.

Why the Owner Chose Watkins Glen, NY, USA:
What we enjoy about the property we have is the location. We are not in the center of town but rather just on the edge of town. We have a lake and harbor view and are close enough to town to walk to restaurants and town events.
