This charming farmhouse is in the heart of the Finger Lakes on the hillside overlooking the Village of Watkins Glen at the South end of Seneca Lake.  It's just 2 miles from Watkins Glen and ~ 30 miles from the cities of Ithaca, Elmira, Bath, Corning and the Elmira-Corning Regional Airport. 

Visiting the Finger Lakes Wine Trail is a must for those enjoying wine, as well as the Watkins Glen State Park for hikers and the Watkins Glen International Raceway for sports enthusiasts (7 miles away).

A 20-minute ride will take you to Hammondsport, named one of the "Coolest Small Towns in America" in 2012 by Budget Travel!

There are plenty of dining locations in the area, ranging from casual to elegant.  Many of the restaurants offer local, farm-fresh foods.  “You-pick” fruit orchards and honor-system fruit and vegetable stands are available frequently during the Summer and Fall throughout the area.

The physical address of The Farmhouse is 3095 County Road 8, Montour Falls, NY 14865.

What A View!

Review submitted: September 16, 2013   Date of arrival: September 7, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at The Farmhouse. A delightful step back in time. The house was just as it was described and the owners were so pleasant and willing to help and answer any questions. We really enjoyed the farm fresh eggs for breakfast!! We really appreciated being able to bring our dogs with us. The house is so close to many activities, yet quiet, peaceful and relaxing. Many thanks Mary Jane and Ernie. We enjoyed talking and visiting with you and we are definitely planning another vacation to Seneca Lake and The Farmhouse!! Thanks again for everything. Coopersburg, PA

Recommended for: age 55+, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: It's always a pleasure to host guests who are so very respectful of The Farmhouse, especially when it comes to bringing their pets. This always makes for a win-win situation! We look forward to others enjoying the fantastic view and the entire Finger Lakes region.

Perfect Get Away Weekend

Review submitted: June 6, 2013   Date of arrival: June 1, 2013

This quaint Farmhouse was absolutely perfect for our long weekend. The description is exact. The home is clean. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly. We enjoyed our late afternoon/evenings relaxing on the back porch over looking the gorgeous mountain side. Our Boston terrier loved playing in the yard and also lounging on the porch. ( if you are out late at night don't forget bug spray, you are in the country). The location to town is literally a minute but you would never know it from where the home sits. If you want ideal location with some relaxation, this is your place. You are minutes from the wine trails and Watkins Glen race track is only 20/30 minutes away. If you enjoy a little cardio then take an afternoon walking the trails at the state park admiring the gorge (remember to bring your sneakers). The home had everything we needed but if you forget your shampoo or razor, Walmart is right down the road. We ate at Mr. Chicken and the Mexican restaurant (they are both good and priced well) We heard Bleachers is very good too but we ran out of time. Thank you Mary Jane, Mike, and Ernie for a great weekend and for the fresh farm eggs they were super yummy. We will be back.

PERFECT in every way!!!

Review submitted: August 3, 2012   Date of arrival: July 10, 2012

If I could give it 100 stars I would!! I stayed for 7 days on my honeymoon and could not have asked for anything better. The house is adorable, quiet, and comfortable, and the views are breath taking! The owners are wonderful and took excellent care of us. My husband and I can't wait to go back. We hope to visit every year.

Recommended for: girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: It always makes us feel good when guests enjoy The Farmhouse and the attractions in the Finger Lakes area. We look forward to seeing guests year after year!
