Arrived on a wet and blustery November late afternoon and were made instantly welcome by Sally in her quirky, English-themed house. Location is great, near the centre of town and effectively walking distance from pretty much everything, the shops, the restaurants, the clubs and even the Glen State Park. Our room was a little short of electrical sockets, the bathroom... More

Hello fellow Brits and thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Guests have called our home lovely, charming and even beautiful on most occasions, but quirky is a new one on me. ??? I hope the rest of you visit to the USA was a pleasant one. Just for future reference as I mentioned in a... More

First the location of this B&B can't be beat. It seems like any major stop in the area is at most a half hour away (Ithaca, Geneva, Seneca Falls, Hammondsport). Its right on the main drag in Watkins Glen which makes it easy to find but there is a bit of road noise. Not enough to complain about but enough... More

Thank you so much for your kind review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. We are so fortunate to live in such a beautiful area. Naturally being in town there will be some traffic, but our great location gives perfect access to the lake, shops, restaurants, parks and of course the Watkins Glen Gorge. It was a pleasure... More

Lucked into a room last minute- easy walk to restaurants & nicely outfitted. Wonderful hostess who gave us our space but was there as needed. Breakfast was generous, which was good because we were hiking the gorge that day. I agree with others that outlets were low, but I'm short enough I could stand to dry my hair. I loved... More

I second all the positive comments here. However, I am compelled to add two improvements needed for the Rose room (and probably for the other rooms). First, the sink (outside the small bathroom) was so tiny that only a small soap/cup could be placed on it. Where do you put your shaving, toothpaste and other equipment? Either install a sink...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We enjoyed having you stay with us in the Rose Room and appreciate your comments. Just for future reference to anyone reading our reviews, there is now a 3-tier stand next to the sink for toiletries, etc. (we had been searching for one that would fit that area). Also, it... More

We stayed at the Marmalade Cat for our 5th annual NASCAR family weekend. Every year we are treated like family. If you are thinking of a trip to Watkins Glen or the surrounding area, you need to stay here. Sally's breakfasts are excellent and you will not leave hungry. The bed and breakfast is in a great location. You are... More

Hello Dave and Suzanne, Thank you so much for your glowing review. We love having you all each year and look forward to each visit. And, yes, you are all like family now in so many ways. I can't believe August has now come and gone and fall will soon be upon us. Oh well, just another short 11 months... More

The room was spacious and beautifully appointed; the bed was comfortable; and the shower was wonderful. And the breakfast was superb! This B&B was well located so that you could easily get where you wanted to go - a lot was walkable - some were short day trips. (Not handicapped accessible) Great visit. We would definitely go back.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the warm hospitality and relaxing atmosphere of the Marmalade Cat. Comfortable accommodations and an excellent location make this bed and breakfast the purrfect choice (sorry, couldn't help myself) while visiting beautiful Seneca Lake.

This was my first time ever staying at a bed and breakfast. I really have no complaints. It was just strange for me having our private bathroom "next" to our room- however I didn't really mind it. Everything was kept very clean. Sally and Martin were very accomodating- very helpful informing us with the local attractions, excellent breakfast each morning.... More
