“Favorite Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

This was one of the BESt experiences I have ever had on vacation and absolutely the best experience for the Watkins Glen wine festival (this was our 5th year)
It is one thing to feel relaxed and content, have an amazing view and have a beautiful, clean place to stay but on top of that, the hospitality at Admiral Peabody's was AMAZING. Olga and Jeff were the sweetest and extremely accommodating.
We all left this place sad because we didn't want to ever leave. We already booked our weekend for next year and are already looking forward to seeing Olga and Jeff (and China :) ) again next year!

When Olga said, "just bring your clothes, a few toiletries, and some food, if you'd like" she was so right! EVERYTHING is in available in the cottage. The view from the front porch is perfect. The waterfront dock is so serene.

We appreciated the water toys that were available for the kids (inner tube, floaties, noodles). A mile away the state park has an amazing swimming pools (Olympic size with diving boards and a kids' 2' wader), playground, and hiking trails. Corning is also very close (+/- 25 minutes) and we all had a great time watching demonstrations at the museum and creating our own glass craft.

We'll be back!

Found this lodge on trip advisor and i'd like to thank the reviewers for reviewing this beautiful place, without them i wouldn't have known of it. Its just 5 mins away from watkins glen state park, and about 10 mins to every winery, distillery, and brewery you can imagine. The owner Olga and her husband were extremely friendly, gave us hugs as we left, which was kinda nice. The cottage itself was a little small but very cozy and super clean. I went with my husband and a 3 yr old daughter, Olga provided a twin mattress for my daughter, since the cottage only had one bed. It also had an attached bathroom; again very clean, had a blow dryer, lots of towels, all the essentials. The cottage had a grill outside, very nice porch to enjoy the beautiful scenery. I loved sipping coffee on the deck, just across the street and on the lake, also has a swing. I didn't even wanna go anywhere else, this place itself had all the views one comes down to see in watkins glen. Will go there again for sure. Love love loved it.

Room Tip: For a party of 2 and a child get the red cabin No.5, it has a beautiful view, for a group of people...

This past weekend 5/16 - 5/17 I stayed at Admiral Peabody's with my boyfriend for a spur of the moment get away. Olga was wonderful from the start, super friendly and down to earth. We stayed in the Red cabin, and it was just wonderful. (also pet friendly) We had a little deck, our own grill, a shared fire pit and a BEAUTIFUL view of the lake. It is just out of town enough to have some piece and quiet but only a 5 minute drive to the wineries! If you want something other then a stuffy hotel room, and a real Watkins Glen experience, THIS is the place to go!! Can't wait to go back! Also, they have private lake front with tables, chairs, and swings right on the lake!

When you make reservations via the Internet, it's always scary and a "hit-or-miss" expererience; however, our stay at Admiral Peabody's Lakeside Lodge was everything the owner, Olga, promised it would be. We had a wonderful stay in the 2-bedroom cottage. It was clean and the view was amazing....when sitting on the deck drinking our wine, we had a beautiful view of the lake; and we also had the choice of walking down to the dock and watch the sun come up over the hills and the lake. Our friends stayed in the small single bedroom cottages which had all the conveniences you could want. What a nice place!!!! Very pleased by the experience!!

Admiral Peabody's is a unique place to stay., and it is hard to describe what category it falls into. We stayed in the 2 bedroom lodging, and it couldn't have been better. We have been going to places on the Finger Lakes for years, and this spot wins hands down. It has the privacy of a motel with the ambiance of a Bed and Breakfast. Everything was available in the 2 bedroom unit, from cold beer glasses in the freezer to every kitchen utensil you could ever need. A gas grill at each unit make it a great place for a meal at "home" and home is where you will feel. Olga and Jeff were welcoming and friendly and the 4 cats and a dog enjoyed dropping by in the morning. We enjoyed a campfire at night that was already to go and a walk down to the docks right across the way made it a great way to enjoy boat watching on Seneca Lake. Just stop at one of the many great Wineries located on the Finger Lakes Wine Trail, pick up your favorite wine, and enjoy a relaxing stay!

Room Tip: The cabins are pretty small, so if you are going to be spending much time inside, the one or two bed...

My parents and I have stayed there 3 or 4 times over the past 7 years or so and have always been pleased with the accommodations and service. Olga and Jeff are always polite and friendly, and the rooms/cabins have always been clean and comfortable. It's not a 4 star hotel, but we don't expect it to be either. Honestly, it feels like being at home without all the chores. The dock is great for getting away from people and relaxing by the lake. And they're dog-friendly too, which is actually why we started going there in the first place.
