About Hank


I am the innkeeper and developer of Vacation Rental Finger Lakes. I have lived and worked in Seattle, Coastal Alaska, Southern California, The Florida Keys and of course here, locally in the Watkins Glen area. I've traveled to Europe, Mexico and Canada and stayed in a wide variety of accommodations and have grown our business offering a combination of amenities that I could never seem to find anywhere else.

I'm a forex and futures trader, inventor and barefoot runner. My past experiences as scuba instructor, innkeeper, restauranteur, Coast Guard navigator, woodworker, map maker, graphic artist and webmaster and owner of numerous service related business have taught me to use common sense and pay attention to details. I hope you enjoy your stay and appreciate the extra mile that we go for you here at Finger Lakes Guesthouses and Vacation Homes. Speaking of details, take a moment and visit our extensive websites, taking time to absorb as much local information as you can.

Hank purchased this house in 2013

Why Hank chose Watkins Glen

I LOVE The Finger Lakes and Watkins Glen, and felt that it was the ideal location to build NYS first Huge Vacation Home and All-Inclusive Wedding Venue. I have traveled extensively and, as a guest myself, I know what people look for. As an innkeeper, I understand that everyone has different priorities and preferences. I've always wished I could find an Inn or Vacation Rental that provided everything we do here. I felt that, as the innkeeper, if I provided a huge amount of high quality amenities, I'm sure to make more guests happy... well, it appears to be working :)

What makes this house unique

We think of everything so you don't have to! Relax and enjoy. With everything from WiFi to Waterfalls to Wet Bar (Large Entertainment/Food Prep, Blenders to Bicycles to Hot Tub, Stream to Swimming Pond (Exotic) and it all overlooks the Pro Beach Volleyball Court and an outdoor shower. Custom tiled huge showers in every room with double shower heads. Vaulted ceilings and skylights on the top floors. 6' thick privacy walls and USB chargers everywhere... Complimentary on-call concierge from 9am - 9pm to help you make the most of your time in the beautiful Finger Lakes!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed October 15-20. We arrived later in the evening and were welcomed by a gracious Host. Hank me us outside and invited us into wonderful home. Soggy Paws quickly warmed up to us. Easily found if you follow the directions. OUr rooms were clean and comfortable. A warm fire awaited us in the large common room. Although not listed as a Bed and Breakfast, Hank provided a very nice breakfast spread of fruits, cereals, local breads, spreads, coffee, tea and juices. The property is large and beautiful with a pond to add to the peacefulness. On nice evenings, Hank would have the campfire going for all to enjoy. Being out of the way a little, it is a very short drive to all amenities. Hiking,Biking,Boating, fishing,wine touring and shopping. If your a race fan, a 5 minute drive to the track is all it takes. Of course being October the views are incredible. With so much to explore, it was comforting to know that our secret hideaway waited for our good nights rest. Hank certainly goes that extra mile. We will be back. cheers
