4 bedroom lakeview cottage house
About Julie Gibbons
Hello and welcome to Green Point! My Grandfather bought this property in 1929 to woo my Grandmother to marry him! It worked! His name was Willis Green and he built my Grandma Sophie a house and painted it Green like their last name! I wonder if he knew that their daughter would end up coming back home to live with them and their granddaughters would end up living there as teenagers. My Mother always told me " the lake brings us back". She was right. Fast forward and the fact is.... we just can't let this family treasure go. Please enjoy what we love dearly. This house, town and region has so much to offer! My husband Joe and I both graduated from Watkins Glen and now live in Rochester with our two teens. When we retire we plan to move here! My sister Jodi graduated from Watkins Glen and now lives in Canandaigua with her husband and two middle schoolers! We all enjoy time at this property anytime we can! One of our favorite things to do is take a cruise on the schooner, "True Love!" It's a ten minute walk to the pier. The picture of Joe and I above was taken on "True Love" last summer. Enjoy the house and contact me with anything you need! Julie Gibbons

Adorable lakeside house with every amenity
We had an absolutely wonderful time staying here for our girls weekend! Julie was incredibly helpful before our stay, letting us know what amenities were available at the house, where good spots would be to stop on our wine tour, and answering any questions that I had in a very timely manner. Upon arrival, it was extremely simple to check in. We were greeted with welcoming signage and a bottle of wine (which we loved!). The house has beautiful views of the lake and is exactly what I pictured when I thought of a lakeside cottage. Very clean, beautifully decorated, and you can tell they put a lot of time and passion into maintaining the property. Would absolutely stay again!
Beautiful Watkins Glen Home
We celebrated Cornell Commencement 2019 with our family of 10 at this lovely house overlooking Seneca Lake. The house had all the space we needed plus a deck and sun porch where we ate breakfast each morning. Julie was so accommodating and knowledgeable with a well organized book filled with Restaurant, Winery, Attractions and other brochures. Her home is well thought out with all the comforts of our own home.
I would highly recommend booking a stay at the lovely cottage on the hill sooner than later. We will surely be back again to visit the wineries and many more attractions in the Finger Lakes.
Thank you again for helping to make our weekend memorable!!
This property matches perfectly the uniqueness of the Fingerlakes region and the community of Watkins Glen. It is a long time family home whose owners have created a wonderful atmosphere for any family get-together. They are very attentive to their guests. We were here for only a short time, so were unable to take advantage of the numerous activities available. My daughter and I did hike the “gorgeous” gorge :) at Watkins Glen State Park, and all four of us visited a couple of wineries. If only we lived on the eastern side of the country, it would be an absolute favorite place to relax and unwind.
A Room With a View
This adorable cottage was perfect for our family of 8 adults. We were welcomed with a personal sign and a bottle of wine. The view from the deck, yard with firepit, and every window was breathtaking. I can't imagine a more perfect place for our family getaway - so much charm in one home!
Awe, thank you Jodi! Our house certainly has charm and a ton of family history. It’s a happy place and I think you must have felt the good family vibes while visiting! Come again, you were an excellent guest!
This house has an amazing view of the lake and is so adorable! I would highly recommend staying here.
Thank you Kim!! I think the view is the best part of our home too..... I could sit and admire it all day! You are welcome back anytime Kim!
