Rose Hill's Estate Guest Quarters Apartment is part of Rose Hill's five acre estate at the top of the hill in the Village of Watkins Glen overlooking Seneca Lake. Feels like you are in the country but just down the hill is the Harbor Hotel and the Village of Watkins Glen with all the pleasures the Village has to offer. The Guest Quarters is a great getaway for a long weekend of sightseeing, wine touring, bike riding or race car driving. Stroll down the hill to the Village and enjoy an evening on the town. Glen Mountain Market is a great coffee stop in the morning or just sit on the porch and sip your coffee and take in the breathtaking lake view. Walk to Watkins Glen State Park or take a quick car ride to the racetrack. ROSE HILL Estate Guest Quarters - THE PERFECT GETAWAY!
My husband & I have had a summer vacation cottage on Seneca Lake for the last 40 years. We had been living in southwest Florida and managing our resort on Longboat Key and summering at our cottage on Seneca Lake. We sold our resort 2008. Due to family we moved to Watkins Glen and bought this estate house at the top of the hill with 5 acres and a beautiful lake view. We also bought a local marina (Frog Hollow Marina) that also needed lots of TLC. So we went from the good life as they say of retirement to a life of having fun working. The house was totally cool but needed lots of TLC. We contemplated a B&B as the main house has 6 bedrooms/ 4 bathrooms and two 1/2 bathrooms. The house is a 5 year project and every year it remains a 5 year project. The guest quarters apartment had not been used for many of years by the previous owners so after deciding not to do a B&B we fixed up the Guest Quarters Apartment for a vacation rental. This year (2015) we are adding The West Wing Guest Quarters consisting a of bedroom/sitting room/bathroom. Our two separate quarters are a great place to hang out when visiting Watkins Glen and the surround area. Feel like you are in the country but just walk down the hill and you are in the heart of The Village of Watkins Glen. We love that we are so close to everything but so far away.
Theresa Woodland purchased this apartment in 2011

Theresa and her husband were wonderful! They welcomed us when we got there and if there was ever anything we needed they were there for us. Other than that it was like we had our own property, just us three. The guest apartment was perfect! The decor is beautiful and up to date, and the bed is amazingly comfortable with awesome pillows! The bedroom was a great size which made it comfortable even with a pack and play set up for our 7 month old son. The fridge was stocked with water, coke, cheese, crackers and OJ, while the kitchen was stocked with crackers, coffee, all your coffee needs and if you're not a coffee person there are many other warm drinks to choose from. The water pressure was great and the whole entire place was spic and span from top to bottom. The location is stunning. We went during the fall and the view was breathtaking. The back porch is everything you could dream of. You're up pretty high on a steep hill if you plan to walk downtown, but I'm not saying it can't be done. Everything is right there and I highly recommend this trip. We can't wait to go back. Were even considering finding a place up there to get married. That's how wonderful it is! Thank you Mr and Mrs woodland. Your home is beautiful and we thank you for everything!
Everything exceeded my expectations. Theresa was a great host who gave great recommendations on where to eat and go around the area. The apartment was everything we wanted, very clean and great views. She even had some snacks and drinks for us in the fridge. While this apartment is very close to downtown, about a half mile, a car is needed to get around (could walk but your calves would be burning). It's at the top of a pretty steep hill that looks like a lot of fun to sled ride down. Anyway it was a great trip and this place had a lot to do with it.
my husband and I stayed here for a week, it was wonderful. Perfect location. the home was very clean and well appointed. very confortable.
This is a really nice place to stay. All amenities are thought of and taken care of. Toiletries all on hand in abundance. Kitchen very well equipped. Décor lovely. Location is absolutely perfect, very private. The owners are wonderful people, very caring. (The only other thing I would say is that if you are a very large person (300 pounds + plus) you may have trouble with the actual toilet location because even though the bathroom is large, the toilet itself is walled into a somewhat smaller location within the room.) All in all a very perfect place to stay. You will love it.
Our stay at the Rose Hill Guest Cottage could not have been more perfect! My husband and I booked a last minute getaway as we needed to escape the "Big City". Upon arrival, Teresa greeted us and welcomed us with open arms. She let us know they would be around and if we had questions to ask! The cottage is exactly what it looks like from the photos, if not better! Its very spacious for 2 people (actually bigger than some apartments I've had!!). There were so many wonderful little touches Teresa did to make us feel right at home! She had bottle water, cheese & crackers, coffee and milk, chocolates, yogurts and juice in the fridge. Such a great welcome to see these goodies waiting for us! The bedroom was great, and the bed super comfy!! The linens were soft and cozy. The outside patio and view are spectacular! We would have coffee in the morning or a pre-dinner drink on the patio at night. Totally amazing to look out over the hill and see the lake and vineyards! They are at the top of a steep hill, but definitely walkable to the center of town...right near the marina, bars, shops and tons of places to eat. The cottage was clean, cozy and just what the doctor ordered! We already started planning our next trip up there and cannot wait to make Rose Hill and Seneca Lake an annual trip for us! Thank you Teresa and Ed for your beautiful cottage and warm welcome!!
