“Just what we needed”
Reviewed 9 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We were a family of four, two of which were teenage boys. Our goal was to visit Cornell and take in the state parks in Watkins Glen and Ithaca. Upon our arrival, the house was unassuming and nothing really to get excited about, but clean, orderly and well kept.
We decided to walk to the lake first which is right across from the Walmart and then we went to the other direction to Watkins Glen State Park. The last we looked the gorge was to be closed. The south parking entrance was, but we walked up the road to the left of the entrance and found a trail that met up with the gorge trail. It was opened! We were one of 10 people there and the falls were swollen and powerful. Because we walked, we were able to start from the bottom and go up. Definitely a better way to see it.
That night we walked to Ben and Jerry's ice cream and took our damp muddy shoes off in the mud room in the back and enjoyed the lasagna dinner we put in the oven before we walked. Now we were really appreciating the house.
The following two days we drove the 40 minutes into Ithaca and did the college tour and many state parks and a cidery still in the cold wet weather. But we came back to a warm home, great showers and room to spread out and dry off. Even did our laundry.
Regina had anything you could need from plastic wrap, to soy sauce, to laundry detergent. We used the plastic food storage containers for our snacks for the hikes.
Just a heads up there is no dishwasher (not a big deal for us) and limited television stations but we brought our firetv and were good to go.
If one of our kids ends up at Cornell, we will most definitely be back!

“Great Location”
Reviewed 3 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We enjoyed our stay very much in Watkins Glen. House is in a prime location to everything. It was nice being within walking distance to the restaurants, stores and the lake. The gorge is also within walking distance if you don't have small children. House was very clean and kitchen was well stocked if you wanted to do your own cooking.
