Race Weekend Work Trip

  • 5 of 5

This property was a perfect fit for my colleagues and I while we worked at Watkins Glen International during the week. The location was perfect as it was walking distance to all restaurants downtown. It was also a short drive to the track which made the early mornings a little better! The house was clean and all the main amenities you would need were included. I would definitely consider renting this property again if we are back next year!

Perfect Spot for a Weekend in Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

I was drawn to the Madison Guest House when I started looking at places to stay in Watkins Glen almost immediately. The reviews were amazing and after staying there this weekend I would have to agree 100%. I had a group of 11 to accommodate -- a difficult task. The house was fantastic and was in a perfect location within walking distance of a number of bars and restaurants. The house was clean and spacious with more than enough room. Each of us had super comfortable beds to sleep in at a seriously affordable rate. Another huge pro for 11 women? Several bathrooms that made it a breeze to shower and get ready for our weekend on the lake.

Travis, the owner, was incredibly easy to get in touch with and answered every question I had leading up to our stay. He and his family also has the fridges on both side stocked with breakfast foods and drinks... One less thing we had to worry about.

Without a doubt, staying here was one of the best decisions we made and when the time comes to head back to Watkins Glen in the future I will make sure the Madison Guest House is available for the trip.

Memorial Day Weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a college graduation so we were a total of 10 people staying at the house. It is spacious, clean, in a nice location and close to Main Street. Travis is a very nice host & left us breakfast supplies which was greatly appreciated! The beds were a bit soft for some of the older people but everything else was perfect!

Thank you Travis.

Great place close to town.

  • 5 of 5

Travis (owner) was very helpful when I had a few issues come up in the 5 months before the day of stay. He gets back to you quickly and is accommodating. We rented the entire house (both sides) and it was like staying at home. He had towels for everyone and everything. The beds were all very comfortable as were the pillows. The small part of the house has two bedrooms one is a loft. On the otherside it has 3 bedrooms. Couches and chairs in both, two porches with chairs.

Continential breakfast was bagels, fresh fruit coffee and oj. The house has everything a regular house would have, which was so nice. It is walking distance to food and shopping.

I highly recommend staying here for any event!
