Spend a night, a weekend or a week at one of the most unique properties in all of the Finger Lakes. Clifftop is a 17 acre paradise, with unforgettable Sunset, Seneca Lake, and village views. Perched atop a bluff and high above the lake, enjoy your very own private compound, only 1 mile from the center of Watkins Glen, at the gateway to the east Seneca Lake wine trail. Hike along thousands of feet of clifftop trails, then descend into a magnificent gorge with several waterfalls, flanked by hemlock, periwinkle, and stone formations. Take an hour or a day; relax within this private natural paradise. Hike back up to the many cliff top nature trails and take in the bee balm, shaded canopy, and daily visits by the bald eagles and osprey that inhabit our area. Or "stay put." Kick back on the deck or lawn directly in front of your room. Sun bathe, nap, or simply enjoy the sailboats, western bluffs, and village below. The Rookery, our upper level hemlock lodge, has 2 king bedrooms(one is a suite) each with deluxe bath, including 6' soaker tub and shower. The full kitchen and entry room provide plenty of elbow room, and 3 patio doors lead to the 50' x 9' deck, located 200' above the lake, below. The large kitchen has quartz counters, all new appliances, lovely maple wood floors. Large glass fireplace. A short distance from your back door is a beautiful view area with your own under the stars fire pit.

About Cindy Atwill
We developed Clifftop on Seneca because we love the friendships and connections we've made during our 20 years in the hospitality business, and we enjoy sharing the incredible beauty of our Cliff top retreat.
Cindy Atwill purchased this House in 2013
Warm and cozy home with warm and friendly owners!
We had a wonderful experience staying at Cindy's home. In spite of the rainy weather, we managed excursions to wineries and cheese tasting! We took a little stroll to the water falls that are right on their property! Accommodations were exceptional!
Very nice accommodations. Great location. Cindy and Ed are wonderful hosts.
We had a great time and the views from the deck were incredible!! The house was very, nicely decorated and clean. Cindy and Ed were amazing hosts!!
We loved the Clifftop Resort on Seneca. It has everything you need with a lovely view of the lake. Ed and Cindy are wonderful hosts. Thanks again!
So glad you enjoyed your stay we us and we hope you return to Clifftop. We enjoyed having you and thank you for taking great care of our property.
Perfect for 2 Couples !
Two couples, Gaza's and Shelly's, had the privilege of staying at Clifftop on Seneca in early June of 2018. The house was perfect for us--two master suites at each end of the house, with a modern kitchen and comfortable living room. We also enjoyed hiking on the property, and eating breakfast on the deck as we looked out on Seneca Lake. At night we'd stay up and play cards (girls dominated the boys) and drink a bottle of wine. The rental was clean, comfortable, and had everthing we needed for a wonderful, memorable vacation. Cindy and Ed were great, answering questions before and during our stay. And the location was perfect! We visited 37 wineries during our 4.5 day visit, traveling to Cayuga Lake (recommend Sheldrake), Keuka Lake (don't miss Heron Hill, Dr. Franks, and Domaine Lessure) and of course Seneca ( Shalestone,Bellangelo and Leidenfrost). We had great dinners at Stonecat, Port's Cafe, and Thai Elephant. Again, great location, great rental, and great hosts Cindy and Ed--we HIGHLY recommend!
Thank you so much and we hope you return to see us next year! Loved meeting you and helping make your stay a memory.
Great views! Beautiful home! Comfortable accomadations!
We spent Memorial Day weekend with another couple at Cindy and Ed’s home. They couldn’t have been nicer hosts and the home was immaculate and comfortable! There were two extremely clean master king suites with attached private bathrooms and a kitchen full of every utensil, glass etc you could ever need. Cindy had a bottle of wine chilling in the refrigerator when we arrived which was an awesome added bonus! The beds were comfortable, the views off the decks were gorgeous and the home was conveniently located! We also really enjoyed the fire pit in the evenings! We would go back in a heartbeat!
Look forward to having you return to the Cliff! Have a great summer.
