“Mini Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Our stay at Watkins Glenn was great and Vickie and Lou's hospitality was top notch! Very knowledgable about the area. B and B was close to local attractions. B and B is cosy, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was great each day. Hope to stay again in the future!

Tammy and Michelle ("Shelly"!)--Thank you for such a great review. It was really wonderful meeting you and seriously hope you will be back. Thanks for your part in the Birthday Celebration--I know it meant a lot to my sister. It really was a great weekend with you there!

Vickie and Lou are wonderful hosts who made sure every need was met. The room was comfortable with extra bathroom amenities and the bed was very comfortable. Pillows could be feather was an extra soft touch, but we still slept well. Lots of goodies always available. Breakfast on the weekend is substantial, and during the week it is just continental. They also provide wood and a fire pit which is a lovely way to wrap up the evening. Several deck levels to enjoy the view. The hike to town was steep, until we found a slightly easier way, but most people just drive. Don't miss Hector Falls on the east side of Seneca Lake.

Room Tip: The lakeview room has a great view but very sunny in AM and overlooks deck where early risers eat an...

We just enjoyed the Labour Day weekend at Lake Valley Legends and it was fabulous! Our hosts Vickie and Lou did everything possible to help us enjoy our stay. The breakfasts were excellent. The B and B is comfortable, warm and inviting. You'll love the location with easy access to the local parks, wineries and the Watkins Glen harbour area. If you like biking or hiking, ask Lous about the CVT trail. Thanks and see you next time! J+B

We stayed at Lake Valley Legends for 3 nights in August whilst travelling through the Finger Lakes. Vickie and Lou are great hosts and make it a very relaxing place to stay. I called to check just before we left for our trip and realised I hadn't said at the time of booking that there was three of us. Vickie was very helpful and changed our room from the Paris room that we had booked to rooms 2 and 3 so not only were we accommodated but our daughter was delighted she had her own room. The cakes were delicious (too delicious!) and continental breakfast was just right.

We recently spent a nite at the Lake Valley Legends Bed & Breakfast. This B&B is a little gem. Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and you feel so at home. Vickie & Lou are wonderful owners and so accomodating. The continental breakfast was fantastic as well. Highly recommend and we will be going back. Elise & Pete Knepper

Room Tip: Loved the lakeview room; however, we toured the other rooms as well and they are all worth taking.

We stayed at the Lake Valley Legends B&B for a long weekend and had a wonderful time. The accommodations were only outdone by the hosts (Lou/Vicki) friendly nature and warm reception. The breakfasts were wonderful, the rooms were clean, and the views of the lake were serene. We'll be back.

Room Tip: If you can climb stairs I'd recommend the top floor with a view of lake. Truly relaxing.

My wife and I have stayed at several Bed and Breakfasts in Watkins Glen, as we make the annual trek there for the Finger Lakes Wine Festival. We originally had reservations at a bed and breakfast we had stayed at previously, but after they had to close due to family reasons, we were stuck without a place to stay. I quickly jumped online and found the website for Lake Valley Legends and promptly booked a room for that weekend. I'm really glad that I did!

The house is located off the main drag, which is good for several reasons - it's quiet, and it has a great view of the lake from their multi-tiered deck! Vicki and Lou are exactly what you would want from innkeepers, they are both friendly, inviting, very hospitable, sociable, and they run a clean, beautiful, and delicious bed and breakfast! We stayed in the German room, which is decorated with actual items that Vicki had procured from her visits to Germany! It is in the basement of the house, and it shares a common area with the Paris room and has its own private entrance from the covered patio. Not to worry though, you still have access to the other common areas of the house upstairs. Tasty breakfasts awaited us each morning, and let me mention another thing - homemade baked snacks and coffee/tea are available ALL DAY LONG. You don't get that kind of perk with all BnBs, and our stomachs were all the better for it! Air conditioning throughout the house, and free wi-fi as well.

As mentioned earlier, the deck has three levels, the bottom covered patio, the second level, and the top level, all with plenty of spacious seating and views of Seneca Lake! They have room to have breakfast inside, although we had breakfast on the deck both mornings and it was gorgeous! They also have a firepit area with chairs, should you be inclined to build a campfire, and Lou will provide you with firewood to burn while Vicki can give you ingredients to make S'Mores!

Easy street parking in front of the house, and there is a driveway that leads to the covered patio if you are renting rooms in the basement. Short walk into town, but be prepared, as it is pretty hilly on the way back.

We so loved our stay that we immediately booked a room for the same weekend next year, and so did our friend, who was renting the Paris room. There is even talk of stopping up sometime during the fall or winter to see the sights and sounds of the holidays! If you've never stayed at a BnB, book a room here, it will be a wonderful way to start off your BnB adventures. If you're old hat at BnBs, give them a call and make a reservation, you won't be disappointed!

Thanks so much Vicki and Lou for making our stay so enjoyable, we'll see you next year!
