We loved our stay here. It was very comfortable and the owner was extremely communicative and helpful.
Comfortable and convenient
The house was located perfectly within the city so that local amenities and attractions could be visited without a car. My stay was short and I was mostly away at a conference it was perfect to use as an easy base for where I needed to be. The property was exceptionally clean and, while a bit sparsely decorated, it had all the essentials and was quite comfortable with all amenaties. The owner even provided some basic food such as bagels and yohgurt. I would definitely rent this again.
Comfy home , great location
Great home just one street over from Franklin with restaurants, bars and shops. One block also from Watkins Glen State Park. Great starting off point for trips to area wineries and breweries.
The house had a nice sized living room, dining room and kitchen. We could only get recorded shows on the tv, no live tv which was a bummer because we wanted to watch football. Bedrooms were nice, beds were comfy.
Recommend fall visit, less crowded, beautiful foliage
Watkins Glen August 2019
This house was in a very desirable location, in walking distance to tons of activities. However, this is the first place (hotel or vacation home) that I was charged per person. To start- the listing says the house sleeps 17, but I didn’t find out until a few days before our stay that it was actually broken into 2 separate apartments, and one side sleeps 7, the other sleeps 10, and that one side was already booked. In addition, I was required to know the exact number of guests, and since I was unsure who would be able to attend, I rounded up. Therefore, I was charged A significant amount of money only TWO days before our stay was set to begin. I am extremely upset and have already filed a formal complaint.
This property was just perfect. We came to Watkins Glen for a family reunion. The house is actually a duplex. My sister & her three teenaged stayed on the side with the two bedrooms. There was a king bed in one bedroom & a queen & a twin in the loft. My husband & I stayed on the other side with my adult daughters & there husbands & one baby. Two of the bedrooms had king beds & the other had a queen. The house was very clean and a very nice touch were the bagels & cream cheese, orange juice, coffee, creamer & oranges. It was a perfect place for all of us to gather on one side or the other in the mornings & at night. All my family members really enjoyed being able to be together as we had not seem some in a year. Thanks Travis for a wonderful weekend!
There was a little miscommunication but overall I was satisfied. It was a good location for my purpose to attend a graduation. The owner was courteous and accommodating. My rating is based on my personal preference of more modern accommodations.
The Guest House is conveniently located in the heart of historic Watkins Glen, one block from the start/finish line of the original Grand Prix Track and within walking distance of Seneca Lake, Watkins Glen State Park, restaurants, antique/novelty shops, miniature golf course, board walk, Racing Museum, movie theater, children's parks, and wine tasting. Centered on the Finger Lakes and Seneca Lake Wine Trails, we are also minutes from the famous hiking and biking trails of the Finger Lakes and Sugar Hill Forests and Watkins Glen International Speedway. Elmira, Corning, and Ithaca museums, colleges and culture are a short drive.
