I live part-time in the Finger Lakes and part-time in NYC. When I am in NYC, I make my Watkins Glen home available for rent.
KB purchased this House in 2010
Why KB chose Watkins Glen
This is a wonderful place to stay if you are looking for quiet relaxation surrounded by nature.
What makes this House unique
Uniquely quiet and secluded with no roads or other homes in sight. Very pet friendly and has a 3 acre space fenced in that completely encircles the house. Just open the door and let your dogs out! The cedar hot tub is a big plus - all natural wood.

Loved this place
We really enjoyed this property. I wish we got to utilize it longer! Very unique house and large spaces. Secluded property. Great hot tub and views too.
We had great communication with owner.
This location is great for anyone looking for a quiet retreat. The property is set back far enough from the road and is very private. The house is uniquely shaped with a wrap around price and floor to ceiling windows. Highly recommended and would love to stay here in the future.
Watkins Glen Review
When we arrived at the property we were surprised by the condition of the driveway...potentially damaging cracks if not careful. Once in the house we were disappointed to find a refrigerator that was not very clean and had expired food in it. There was little room for us to put our groceries in it after we cleaned it. Thankfully we came with cleaning supplies. We also had to dispose of a bag of rice when we saw bugs crawling around in it. While looking around we also found a drawer full of cleaned eggshells....that was surprising. There was quite a bit of dust in the house especially on the fans in the bathrooms and light fixtures. We were warned of the lack of stability of the deck railing but the floor boards could be quite dangerous...there are some cracks in the wood. If you plan on enjoying the deck at night bring flashlights there is little to no light outdoors. Overall we had an enjoyable weekend because we were in good company not because of the property which is a shame. If we paid that much money for a hotel we would have checked out and asked for a refund.
Perfect place for calming your soul. Lots of hiking available or travel to nearby towns for a variety of things to do. Corning glass museum is a great trip and you can make your own glass piece. Evenings are great for family time, food, games and relaxing in the hot tub. If your looking for a "hotel" like atmosphere this place is not for you. Its a unique home in the quiet of the woods where you can rest your soul from the craziness of the world.
Most relaxing vacation ever
Absolutely loved the house. It is so private and beautiful. Trails are close as well as the wineries. I have lung issues with chemicals but had no problem sitting in the hot tub. It’s just a perfect place to unwind and spend family time together. The games are fun. I just can’t say enough good about the place and I would definitely go back
Third time's a charm! Best house!
