Nice little motel with views of the lake and a gigantic yard for the kids to run around or for the four-legged friends. The good; Beautiful location; pets allowed; independently owned property; rooms are big and clean; centric area. But: Rooms have a musty smell, furniture is a mismatch of old stuff, breakfast is a big name for what they... More

This motel (with a few cabins) is very clean and the manager is friendly and helpful. We liked the fact that there was a microwave and small refrigerator in the room. It made it easier for us to get up early and get out. We never took advantage of the continental breakfast but my husband said it was minimal. So... More

We stayed at the Lakeside Resort during the Canadian Thanksgiving long weekend. And we lived in one of the cabins. The room was very clean, the property was gorgeous, the view was fantastic, Jimmy (the Dog) is lovely, and proprietor Tony is extremely helpful. We have no complaints at all and we have recommended this place to a few friends.... More

Really a wonderful find a little north of Watkins Glen. The proprietor Tony is a great host. The rooms are clean, bright and quiet. The grounds are immaculate and spacious. While not on the lake there is beautiful view of it bordered by a vast expanse of lawn towards the water. The official greeter of guests is Tony's beautiful white... More

We​ procrastinated this past Labor Day weekend trying to figure out what to do and where to go.​ A very last minute decision and booking, we picked Lakeside Resort in Watkins Glen for it's price, location on Lake Seneca and pet policy. Tony, the owner, was very flexible with us when we arrived late Friday night (11pm). He welcomed us... More

Visited the resort for three nights while attending a festival nearby. The room was clean and quiet. Nothing luxurious, but everything needed for a nice stay including a microwave and refrigerator. The owner was delightful and solicitous. The lovely view of Seneca Lake was an extra plus. Highly recommended!!

My husband and I spent weeks looking for places to stay in the Finger Lakes but everything was either fully booked or way too expensive. I was skeptical on booking here because the cabin was such a great price and right along Lake Seneca. As soon as we got out of the car we were greeted by Jimmy, the adorable... More

Just completed a 5 night stay, the first in a cabin and the rest of the nights in the main building with a view of the lake. Both rooms were simple, clean and comfortable. The grounds were awesome and very expansive. Tony, the manager, was extremely helpful and generous and the rest of the staff was great, too. It's only... More
