We stayed at the Harbor Hotel in Watkins Glen over the Thanksgiving holiday and had a wonderful stay. Although we had a village view room rather than a view of the lake, the view up the hill was very pleasant. Service was excellent beginning with check-in all the way to the girl who came to do turn down. The rooms were spacious and clean with two comfortable queen beds a table and lounge chair. Bathrooms were luxurious with a large walk-in tiled shower. Overall excellent for the price. Watkins Glen is a little quiet at the time of year we visited but if it was a little warmer we could have walked in the beautiful countryside.
We made an early afternoon reservation for the Thanksgiving buffet and could not have been more impressed. Fresh salads, pasta, fish, roasts and an amazing array of deserts. Be sure to arrive hungry and enjoy a relaxed meal. The finger lakes wine we chose to accompany the meal was also excellent.
The only tiny criticism I have is that there was no in-room coffee maker, which seems like an odd oversight in a luxury boutique hotel. Coffee is provided on each floor, but only until 11am. What happens after a long cold afternoon walk, when all you want is to flop in the room with a hot coffee?
