TOTAL RELAXATION IN A PICTURESQUE VILLAGE SETTING, MINUTES FROM ALL ATTRACTIONS.

Montour Falls House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6.

This beautiful home, built in the mid-1850's, is located in the charming village of Montour Falls. The property is just minutes from Seneca Lake, award winning wineries, and the renowned Watkins Glen International race track. The falling waters from the famed Che-qua-ga falls can be heard from the home's beautifully manicured grounds and in-ground pool area. The home has a fully stocked, large kitchen, a laundry, is high speed wireless, has a gas grill, and is a short walk to the village. We supply linens, towels, bedding, and many suggestions to make your stay enjoyable. We are less than a half hour drive from Elmira, Corning, Ithaca, and Hammondsport. The owners own a catering business and are available to prepare special dining experiences for you. Special packages are available that include gourmet meals, sailing, wine tours, and special lady outings.

Local Knowledge: The property is now known as Rosemary's Legacy, after the former owner who took care of her family and gracious home for over 60 years. For well over 50 years, the family owned the area's most popular landmark restaurant, and as such, are certainly not strangers to the hospitality industry. Rosemary's husband was the mayor of the village, the democratic chairman of the county, and the longtime chairman of the board of the nearby hospital. The road leading to the hospital now bears his name. One of the owners of this property has been a lifelong resident of the village. The owners of Rosemary's Legacy literally know everyone in the area; with their huge contact base, they are able to make your stay most enjoyable. The Watkins Glen and Seneca Lake area are famed throughout the world. There is much to do for a family or for those looking for a romantic, peaceful getaway. The home is impeccably decorated, scrupulously clean, and is truly your home away from home.

This was a great house in a great location. The owner was very helpful, as this was our first time in town. The house was so beautiful, charming, and every other nice adjective you can think of! We will definitely be staying here on our return trips to Seneca Lake.

Owner's Response: We thank Pattik for the kind words. Maryalice and I always try to go the extra mile to make not only Rosemary's Legacy a home away from home, but our entire village and area your home town away from home.

A group of four women rented this property for our annual trip. The location was perfect, centrally located to wineries, good restaurants, and scenic drives. John, the owner, was extremely helpful, providing us with information on local restaurants and giving us passes and maps for complimentary wine tastings. A gourmet breakfast was also served each morning. The home was spacious, clean, and well cared for. This would be a prefect home base for any visitor to the area.

This was our second stay at Rosemary's Legacy, and we are happy to add it as our home away from home when in the area.

John and MaryAlice are wonderful people, exceedingly helpful and friendly before, during and after a visit. They make wonderful suggestions from recipes to activities to enjoy to personal tours of local wineries/distilleries. Their kindness and enthusiasm was gracious and appreciated.

They live next door, and were respectful of our privacy and very helpful and jovial with a late-evening knock on the door to lend me some spices. I prefer to do my own daily tidy up with bathrooms/bedrooms and the kitchen, and John and Maryalice had no problem with that, as we treat their property as if it were our own home.

Staying in the house feels like staying in a family home. we both enjoyed going through the cookbooks and seeing the notations made by John's mother, and the books on the New York Yankees - you have the comfort in the house of a life well-lived.

To stay in a homelike atmosphere given our frequent travels is wonderful and something we seek out. The kitchen is well-stocked with dishes and cookware, and a holiday for us is to prepare home-cooked meals, and relax and be together. Staying at Rosemary's Legacy allows us that when we visit the area.

The property was far cleaner this visit than the last. One thing that must be almost impossible to manage is the care different guests take in a kitchen as well-stocked as this one is. I would think it impossible for the owners to check every dish and utensil that it was properly washed before being put back in the cupboard. One thing I would like to see is the ovens cleaned and the front large burner fixed - this would make meal times easier, given I'm short and it's a bit of a reach for me to the back of the stove.

The house is quiet, fully-carpeted, and peaceful. The falls are a short walk away, and are simply beautiful. A historic home we admired resulted in the owner inviting us in for a tour, and the businesses downtown were friendly and welcoming, even when we were just coming in to explore the architecture. Lovely small town, close to all amenities.

We had a wonderful time at Rosemary's Legacy. The location is a block from main St. so you can easily walk to town and the falls. There is plenty of parking. The house is very clean and cute and quite spacious. Three bedrooms are all a good size and the master is huge with its own balcony. The pool is clean and set on a hill in the backyard. You have all the things you need in the home including two nice screened porches for relaxing. Kitchen is fully equipped. a very homey feeling.
John, the owner, is very friendly and hospitable. He is very knowledgable of the area and gives you a nice personal folder of local attractions. He lives next door so there is no problem contacting him during your week. We highly recommend.

Having read the previous reviews it is hard to think of anything not already said. We had a fantastic time here after a hectic week doing the sights in NYC. We also messed John and Maryalice about with our "Dinner for Two" booking,and also a winery tour and golf game were cancelled and re-booked when we had friends unexpectedly visit, but nothing was too much trouble.We have given John and Maryalice fair warning- - - we will be returning to Rosemarys Legacy- - - and we can't wait !
