About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Beautiful fully furnished and equipped vacation home with great views on the Sunset side of Seneca Lake.

Conveniently close to everything that you want to explore or visit in the Finger Lakes. The roomy 1600 square foot interior of this old farmhouse has new modern paint, updated vanities, new BeautyRest mattresses and gorgeous refinished hardwood floors throughout. You'll enjoy taking in the stunning lake views from the large enclosed front porch, the living area, front bedroom or from one of the seating areas outside in the large acre yard. Pictures don't do justice for the wonderful views, beautiful rooms or ample size of the house. Great mix of old and new decor as well as furnishings.

Picnic table, hammock and bench as well as other portable seating for outdoor use.

No smoking in the house.

What makes this house unique

Nice private house and setting with no one to bother you during your stay. Can't beat the views as mentioned, but also with plenty of outdoor furniture to put where you want on the property and a charcoal grill on wheels, you can enjoy the views as well as the nice yard. The bedrooms are all on the 2nd floor, but there is only 3 steps down to get into the house.

Watkins Glen Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this farmhouse near Watkins Glen. The house, situated on a large lot overlooking Seneca Lake, was clean, spacious, and nicely furnished. The kitchen was stocked with various spices , so check the cupboards before you go shopping. The beds were very comfortable ensuring a good night's sleep after a busy day exploring this part of the Finger Lakes. Because of its location, we were able to take in a lot of the sights. Hiking to the top of the gorge at the Watkins Glen State Park is well worth the effort. We got to drive the racetrack at the Watkins Glen International Raceway, and also enjoyed visiting the various wineries. We were able to take the short drive into Ithaca and see some of the sights there. Diane and Tony were helpful in recommending restaurants and places to see in the area. We would recommend this rental and would definitely return if in the area again.

Saving as one of my favorites!

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy to have come across this vacation home. Diane and Tony have taken a comfortable old farmhouse with a beautiful view of Seneca Lake and turned it into a wonderful retreat. The house is instantly welcoming - clean, spacious, beautiful hardwood floors, lovely porch overlooking the lake, comfortable beds and an overall peaceful environment. It feels very private as there is greenery and fence between neighbors and is situated on a bit of property perfect for viewing the sunset.

We found the location for sightseeing to be perfect. 10-15 minutes from Watkins Glen - which is truly spectacular. Very close to nice restaurants, wineries, breweries, shops and stores. (love the Stone Cat Cafe, Two Goats Brewing, Skyland Art Barn, Ben & Jerry's, Seneca Harbor Station) Only about 30-40 minutes to great parks in Ithaca - Robert Treman, Taughannock, Buttermilk Falls, etc. Driving around the area is enjoyable too - lots of woods, views of the lakes, farmland. Also good for exploring the beautiful campus of Cornell and downtown Ithaca (Be ready for traffic downtown and avoid rush hour if you can). It was great to take my Mom to the iconic Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca :)

Our host was helpful and in communication with us whenever we needed anything. The house also had many booklets and maps to help with our day trip planning. We hiked, swam and kayaked and had a restful home base to return to every evening. It was really lovely. We would gladly return and will definitely recommend to friends.

Historic Gem in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

Rented this AMAZING property for a Phish festival at Watkins Glen. House is immaculate, furnished beautifully, and the best place I have stayed in Watkins Glen. The kitchen was large enough to cook a full breakfast and dinner every day! No detail is overlooked. Unfortunately we had a friend cut himself, and there was a FULLY stocked first aid kit. Close to wineries, the racetrack, and swimming in Seneca Lake. Highly recommended!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was very comfortable and well stocked. We especially appreciated the great mattresses! Beautiful view of the lake. Very easy access to beach, shopping, and site-seeing. Loved it and would go back anytime.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We were all very happy with the house! The view is absolutely gorgeous and the inside is nicely furnished. The living room comfortably sat all six of us and the kitchen table was great for playing board games. The kitchen had a lot of necessities incuding fridge, microwave, and toaster oven. The rentor was extremely accommodating and allowed us to control the heat so that everyone was comfortable. She mentioned there would be enough towels and wash cloths but we seemed to be short a few wash cloths so you might want to take your own if you have a large group of people. The only other tip was we visited the house in april so they hadn't had a chance to do any winter maintenence so the driveway was a little rough for sportscars. Hoping they plan to fix the driveway because this place is a great house for a great price and great view. It is only minutes from downtown watkins glen!
