We stayed in a room with a king-sized bed and balcony facing the lake. My parents stayed one floor down in a similar room, though with two double beds. Both rooms were lovely. The service and staff were so professional and friendly. Everyone was smiling and friendly and always asked us how we were doing. There was free coffee on each floor in the morning. The lake views were superb.
We ate in the hotel restaurant one night, and it was okay. Another evening, we went to the restaurant next door, which was a step up. Our friends ate at the restaurant next door three times on their trip. So, even if you don't fancy The Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel restaurant, it's a short stone's throw for another option.
Two days in a row we went hiking in the Glen Watkins gorge, which was also very close to the hotel. We also enjoyed Watkins Glen's lovely, quaint downtown. We were in town for an event at Cornell University, which is ~25 miles away. It was a picturesque drive that we made many times.
