About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the manager
I will try to sum this up: quiet, clean, full kitchen, BBQ on patio, 2 bathrooms..yes 2 bathrooms!!!, too many TV channels to watch and get this- full size laundry machines!!! Oh and I forgot, in the middle of Watkins Glen... All restaurants within short walk... the Glen itself is about a 2.5 minute walk. Owner answers the phone every time on first few rings... I have stayed here a few times so this is why I know this to be true. I could go on... coffee machine..microwave...full size fridge... starting to get the picture??? My Fiance Irina loves it here too!!! For us, this is the only place to stay in Watkins Glen...oh ps the racetrack is a short drive up the hill for you racers and fans alike... Enjoy!!!

Finger Lakes Family Weekend
Good Weekend Getaway for Adults and older children
Many guests find the two separate suites favorable for accommodating groups with children. Using the two suite house, many of our guests designate a "quiet side" and a "noisy side", or a "kids side" and a "no-kid zone". We have hosted children's birthday parties and sleepovers for our own kids at the Guest House over the years. Sorry to hear that the house left you wanting on your family vacation.
There are steps leading to the house from the street below and I have revised our listing to make that more clear. Thank you for the feedback. It helps us connect the Guest House with guests.
Wonderful mini-vacation in Watkins Glen
Lovely home, spacious and close to town attraction
Wonderful 50th wedding anniversary family reunion
Travis, our review.
Positives: Very Clean. Adequately furnished with suitable amenities.
Good customer service.
Negatives: Entirely TOO NOISY! Neighbors to left of house (as you view from
the street) were outside yelling, carrying on till 3am, Sunday morning.
Residents in attached duplex were loud on Friday night but to their
credit did come over and asked such, thereafter quieting, however
Saturday night it resumed again.
Based upon the above we could NOT recommend this lodging to a friend or relative.
Again, with hopes this helps your future lodgings,
Lou and Joyce Fratangelo
We have never been informed of noise problems with any of the neighbors; if only we had been made aware there was a problem, we would have moved immediately to address the issue.
To future guests: we would like to assure you that we are available to assist you with any issues you might encounter while staying at our guesthouse. We live nearby and are available to our guests 24 hours a day via phone call, text message, or email.
Again, Lou and Joyce, we apologize for your troubles. We thank you for staying with us!
