About Sue Knapp

I purchased a downtown commercial building in 2003 and in 2004 opened O'Susannah's Quilts & Gifts. The building included 2 large apartments on the second floor and I decided to renovate that space into one large apartment offering a getaway for visitors to the Watkins Glen area. The apartment also includes a large well-lit meeting room used by quilters, knitters, scrapbookers and folks looking for a intimate location for a bridal shower or meeting facility. I enjoy meeting many people who enjoy the beautiful Finger lakes area as much as I do !

  • 5 of 5

We held my daughter's bachelorette party weekend here. It's a very convenient location for taking a tour of wineries. We had 14 guests; and there was plenty of room for everyone. We loved the large meeting room for playing games and eating together! The owner was so helpful in providing recommendations for good pizza and working with us for arrival. I would definitely book this property again!

A wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for my sister's bachlorette party and it was perfect. We had 12 people total and everyone fit comfortably. The apartment was very spacious with a cozy living room and it was very clean. There were air conditioning units in every room so the place was nice and cool, and we could easily control the temperature.

It is in a super convenient location. There is a bar on the same street which was really fun on Saturday night and the first stop on our wine tour was less than 10 minutes away. Sue was also great to work with!

I would definitely stay here again!

Excellent Time

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for my daughter's bachelorette weekend. We had an awesome time, the Inn is so homey and comfortable, it is just what my daughter wanted. The meeting room provided and large area for all of us to have dinner together and socialize. The living room was cozy but still had enough room for us to sit and enjoy the morning coffee and afternoon wine and cheese. There were enough beds for everyone and they were very comfortable too. We were in walking distance to the lake and the restaurants. We had taxis pick us up right out side to take us to the wine festival, which was also amazing. The owner was so very nice and accommodating, even when I told her we were stuck in traffic and going to be late arriving. Thank you so much.

Family Wedding

  • 5 of 5

What a great space for multiple families to stay together for a weekend or more! Everything was very clean. Beds were plentiful and comfortable. Lots of towels, washcloths, paper goods, hair dryer, stocked kitchen ... anything you could think of was available. Within a couple of blocks there is a great café/bakery, brew pub and BBQ joint. Also only a short walk to the gorge at the state park and Seneca Lake. We stayed with our cousins family and could not of asked for a better place with lots of room for 5 teenagers to hang out playing games all night while the adults could talk in the living room. Thank you so much! Would definitely stay here again.

Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Loved our weekend at The Inn. It is a perfect place to hunker down for winter sewing. It is always warm and welcoming!!! Everything you need is there. Kitchen is perfect for cooking a big pot of soup and everything you need is in walking distance....including emergency fabric/sewing needs. His year we took a walk to the lake at sunset and got some beautiful pictures of a Winter Watkins! We are all signed up for next year!
