These guys are the best
su luglio 10, 2015
I was in need of a room close to Watkins Glen International racetrack. I had never been to this area of New York. I found this place from previous travelers' reviews when it was under previous ownership. The reviews were nothing but great. I was a little concerned about staying during the transition, but these fears disappeared after meeting Jim and Kristine. What a nice couple. Just what I was looking for. Felt like home. My every need was met. I can't recommended them highly enough now, and I am sure it will only get better as time goes on. Joseph Schifini, MD
SO SAD........BUT MANY HAPPY MEMORIES!!
su giugno 16, 2015
Sad because we just learned that Julie and George have recently sold their beautiful
Victorian home. We have been frequent guests at this B&B over the years
and always felt right at home - the reason we would return year after year! The breakfasts were excellent - George would serve a 3-course breakfast and Julie baked the most delicious breads and pastries! The home is beautiful and located within walking distance to town. George and Julie could always provide recommendations on places to go eat and things to do while visiting the area. They would always do anything they could to make your stay a memorable experience. We especially enjoyed sitting on the wrap around porch at the end of the day sharing stories with both of them! We want to thank you for making us feel like a part of your "family" over the years! We understand that the new owners will be taking over sometime in June. We wish them much success and hope they continue to provide the same wonderful experience as we have had to future guests! Our best wishes to George and Julie in the next chapter of your lives - thanks for all the memories over the years!! We'll miss you!
Wonderful hosts, great place to stay !

We just got back from a 3 night stay at Seneca Lake Watch B&B. On a scale from 1-10 this is a 10! George and Julie are just delightful! They are the perfect hosts. The house is roomy and immaculate. The wrap around porch overlooks the lake and it's beautiful views. Breakfast was a treat every morning. One was more delicious than the other. And plenty filling. We didn't have to stop for lunches during our wine tastings. We stayed in the Kueka room. King bed, the room was very spacious, balcony and a private bath. In the evening we sat around the living room with our friends, played games and chatted. We felt right at home. George and Julie are very knowledgeable of the area and will make suggestions if needed. If you are going to Watkins Glen and are looking for a B&B, look no further. I can't imagine staying anywhere else! Thanks George and Julie, we had a great time!
Beautiful Seneca Lake Watch Bed & Breakfast
su settembre 22, 2014
If you are going to Watkins Glen this is the place that you are going to want to stay. The Innkeepers- Julie and George will make you feel right at home, serve fresh delicious feasts for breakfast, and make fabulous suggestions of where to go and what to do- if you wish. Should you prefer to remain solitary you will have that as well.
The Inn itself is a large Victorian house filled with charm and clean as a whistle. The rooms are comfy and cozy and the views of the lake are glorious. The wraparound porch is a great place to view the lake or you can sit on the deck in the back. I liked sitting in the gazebo and strumming my guitar- you can do that if you like as well.
Perfect place to stay!

Stayed July 2014 for two nights while our daughter attended orientation at Ithaca College 30 minutes away. The house itself has a lot of charm and is quiet. Our room and bathroom were very clean. Full Breakfast both mornings was excellent and obvious the innkeepers put thought and effort into it. I would highly recommend it,
Fantastic Bed & Breakfast in Watkins Glen

I HIGHLY recommend Seneca Lake Watch Bed & Breakfast! It was obvious that George and Julie love people and love running their B&B. Everything they do is first class. After they establish the dietary requirements of their guests, a wonderful 3-course breakfast in a beautiful dining room can be expected. The pastry was served warm from the oven as Julie bakes something new every day. George is never without a smile whether he's preparing breakfast, making dinner reservations for guests, talking about the local wines or cleaning the beautiful Victorian house which is meticulously clean. The location is perfect and within walking distance from town. Staying at Seneca Lake Watch B&B felt like being in the home of your favorite relatives!
Beautiful, welcoming Bed & Breakfast with a view of Seneca Lake
su agosto 16, 2014
The Seneca Lake Watch Bed & Breakfast is exactly what you hope for when you decide you want to stay in a B & B. Large lovely rooms, all with private baths. Wonderful owners who make every effort to make their guests comfortable, including having a guest living area and well equipped guest kitchen And wonderful breakfasts prepared and served by the hosts.
My room was the Cayuga. A large room, good closet space, lots of drawers in the chest, two windows with a view of the lake. The private bath was immediately outside of the door of the room. The hosts provide a large comfy terry cloth robe for guests in the two rooms whose private bath is not inside of their room All of the rooms are on the second floor of the house and up stairs typical for these older homes. Parking is on the street. Two of the rooms have large attached decks with views of the lake. Cayuga has a portico right next to the room with a view of the lake. One room does not have a lake view (and has to walk a bit down the hall for their private bath). The 5th room shares the portico with Cayuga but it did have their private bath inside the room.
Breakfast is served in two sittings when the property is full– at 8:15 and 9:15. The food was excellent and substantial. 3 courses, usually a fruit followed by a bakery item and then the main course The main courses when I was there were Belgian Waffles with fruit, a baked egg dish and apple pancakes, all served with sausage.
As with most bed & breakfasts, the hosts are a large part of what makes or breaks the experience. George & Julie do a wonderful job making you feel as though you are a guest in their home (which technically you are). However the property is for sale so if George and Julie are not still the owners I can’t guarantee that you’ll have the same wonderful experience I did.
Best Place to Stay in Watkins Glen!

The Seneca Lake Watch bed and breakfast was our first ever bed and breakfast and no other has compared. My wife and I first stayed back in 2008 and just recently (July 2014) stayed again to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. George and Julie are top notch B&B proprietors. The house and rooms are always impeccably clean. Our favorite room is the Seneca room with its views of Seneca Lake and morning sunrises. This year we brought friends with us who stayed as well (and also loved it). Breakfast is always a multi-course meal and the food is incredible. George and/or Julie personally hit up the local farmers markets to purchase the freshest ingredients for their breakfasts. For this most recent stay, since it was our 10th wedding anniversary, we had ordered a cake at a Wegmans grocery store in Corning, NY. Julie personally went and picked it up for us so that it was at the B&B when we arrived. On our last day there, George and Julie, knowing that we were going to have a small anniversary celebration at the B&B with our friends, provided wine glasses to use for our celebration and gave us a complementary bottle of champagne as an anniversary gift. These guys go out of their way to make their guests feel at home and appreciated. After breakfast each day I sat on many of the outdoor decks taking in the beautiful scenery and even sat in their gazebo out in their backyard. I would HIGHLY recommend staying at the Seneca Lake Watch bed and breakfast to ANYONE who is in the Watkins Glen, NY area. The only thing better than this place in Watkins Glen is the gorge trail at the Watkins Glen State Park nearby (because of its beauty).
The only B&B I've ever really loved
su luglio 08, 2014
George and Julie are just terrific, they really make this place great. It's a wonderful location, just a short walk from town. We've stayed there twice and have been very pleased. The rooms are large and clean and the breakfast is delicious. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone, even those like me who are always wary of the B&B experience.
Our "Home away from Home" - long time guests . . .
su febbraio 13, 2013
We have gone to the Seneca Lake Watch B&B every August since 1997 (or sooner, not sure) and we LOVE it there. It is our one, annual, getaway. George and Julie (Conway) have become family to us so it's like going "home" but to a much more relaxing pace! Their breakfasts are second to none and rooms are exquisitely furnished and clean. The central air is also welcome in the sometimes hot August days/nights. We especially love sitting on the beautiful large front porch and looking out onto Seneca Lake. There are not enough "stars" to rate this B&B what it deserves!
