About Sherry Mangus

We are Jeff & Sherry Mangus. We are both natives to Schuyler County having grown up here.

Jeff is employed at Cornell University as a supervisor of the rigging crew in the physics department where he has worked for more than 30 years.

Sherry is a retired homemaker. Together we operate a small farm raising Berkshire hogs & White Galloway cattle in addition to caring for and operating The Bella Vista Guest House.

Why Sherry Mangus chose Watkins Glen

The Bella Vista Guest House property is where Jeff grew up with his grandparents. The family enjoyed growing native variety grapes and selling them U-Pick for many years. Grandpa has passed on and grandma is residing in an assisted living facility. This beautiful piece of property was passed to us many years ago. The home was in poor condition but the basic structure was good so we decided to renovate in 2010 with the idea in mind of using it as a guest house.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Location, location, location!! Near town but private, quiet, relaxing. Great views! Neat small cities nearby! Natural beauty of the area! On the Seneca Lake Wine Trail!
