One word - Peaceful. I took a chance with the Anchor Inn & Marina on Seneca Lake and I sure am glad I did. It is truly the “Goldie Lox” of the area in regards to price, amenities, location, and service. It isn’t as expensive as the B&B scene and yet it is under priced for the view and tranquility of the location. The rooms don’t have fancy furnishings yet it is very clean with nice sized rooms and comfortable beds. You don’t get room service, but you do get very welcoming and accommodating keepers that care about your stay and provide a family atmosphere. Every room has access to a shared balcony that allows access to a beautiful view of Seneca Lake and the beautiful sound of the small falls that run next to the inn. The road is semi-private and off the main streets so it really feels secluded. There is a small bar and marina right across the street on the water that gives you more options to explore if you need a cold drink or light snack. For a light breakfast, they offer muffins, danishes, coffee, and juice. For the techies, they offer free WIFI and for the tourists - it is close to everything in the area - 0 minutes to the lake, 5 minutes to Watkins Glen State park, 20 minutes to Watkins Glen International Race Track, and right off scenic Highway 14 which has many (10+) choice wineries. This place was perfect for what I needed and if I ever need a place to stay in the area again - I will definitely stay here. No doubt.
