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!!!

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!

Wedding weekend in Watkins Glen

  • 5 of 5

The Madison guest house was everything we expected from previous reviews we had read. Travis was incredibly easy to work with and while we didn't need to contact him during our stay, he made himself readily available if there was anything we needed during our wedding weekend. Accommodations were comfortable and all necessary amenities were provided. Breakfast foods were provided and came in handy for everyone. I only wish there was a slightly larger yard but we still managed to use the only flat space out front to play cornhole. Overall, it was an amazing weekend that my new wife Nancy and I will never forget. Thanks Travis!

Charming Property

  • 4 of 5

Pros: The owner Travis is very responsive and an easy person with whom to deal. I believe he would do anything to try to make your stay comfortable. The property is only two blocks from the Watkins Glen gorge hike and the same from main street. We walked to all restaurants and the harbor of Seneca Lake. It was very convenient! It can also accommodate comfortably a large number of people.

The house is "rustic" but charming. My main complaint would be that the kitchen has no dish washer, and I do not like washing dishes by hand. There is the issue also of how the dishes were washed by the previous tenants. The upstairs bathrooms require a small step up or down. I would not recommend this unit for people with ambulatory issues. The steps up to the house are also fairly steep.

If you do not mind the lack of a dish washer, this is a great place for family or group reunions.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

"I had a very positive experience staying at the Madison Guest House. The owner was very friendly and willing to answer my many questions before and after booking.

The house is right in the heart of Watkins Glen and is walking distance to shops, restaurants and the state park.

The house was fully stocked with clean sheets, pillows, and plenty of towels and washcloths. The owner also put plenty of breakfast food: oatmeal, coffee, cream, orange juice, eggs, bagels and cream cheese, etc. into the house prior to our arrival.

Overall, the house was extremely clean, cute and cozy and has the ability to accommodate large and small groups.

I would recommend this to anyone interested in spending time in Watkins Glen!
