My wife and I just came back from an extended weekend at the Idlwilde and it was everything we had hoped it would be. Beautiful property, very friendly staff, great accommodations. We also splurged and stayed in the carriage house, room #16. If you are looking for a place to just have some downtime that is close (but not too close) to everything in Watkins Glen this is the place. Thank you Maria and John. I am certain we will be back.

- Idlewilde Inn is an 18 room Victorian mansion built in 1892. This charming house has a character given by exquisite craftsmanship of an earlier era, with meticulously done staircase, moldings, ornamental ceilings, and fireplaces. There are several sun rooms, and a huge breezy wraparound porch, all overlooking the beauty of Seneca Lake. Idlewilde Inn is only a short walk to town. Historical Watkins Glen and the Fingerlakes area offer many year round activities. ... more less
