We needed a place to stay for a last minute trip, but knowing what we know now, we would have still chosen the Lakeside resort. The price is a great value. Breakfast was simple, but with a fantastic view. The cottage was spotless, tasteful, and spacious. The owner was so nice and took plenty of time to answer our questions. We will be back to the lakeside resort for our next visit to Watkins Glen.

Room Tip: The cottages are a great value.

My husband and I were searching for a tasteful room after staying the first night in a bleak ,uninspiring motel in the vicinity.
Surely In this beautiful Glen location we could do better !!
After looking at several motels with either no signs of life , or, very expensive rates (considering the accomodations), I was beginning to re-think the wisdom of leaving our bleak little room.behind that morning .
It was getting near dusk and we were desperately seeking lodging up route 14 out of Watkins Glen when we noticed the quaint looking log cabins of Lakeside Resort and pulled in. We were pleasantly surprised to find a whole cabin was less expensive that what we had been paying for the bleak room with the ripped rugs.
Score !!
We opted instead for the room with a king sized bed ( cheaper still ) as it was brightly painted and overlooked a huge lawn which overlooked Seneca Lake..
Gorgeous !!
Tony and his adorable Lab were both gracious hosts . The grounds are well manicured with beautiful plants and flowers around There was a bench and table to sit outside your room and enjoy the night air. And though I gave up smoking years ago, I was impressed that there were ashtrays outside for guests who do smoke . VERY thoughtful ! We slept well and had a nice continental breakfast in the morning . We told Tony before we left that we were going to write about his beautiful resort.
HiTony ---Thank you for everything !!!!!!!!!!!!

What a wonderful weekend. Our cottage was quaint and clean. Tony and his dog, Jimmy, were such gracious hosts. Grab your blanket, a bottle of wine, some friends and/ or your sweetie and head out to the lawn; breathtaking views and calm. We will be back next year, thank you!!!

Stayed here for 2 nights in August and booked the room mostly because it accommodated pets - especially our Great Dane, Sadie. Tony the owner is a very nice man, and Lorraine, the grounds and housekeeper is the best! She was a wealth of information on the area, gave us clippings and seeds from some of the flowering plants she takes such pride in and made sure that our stay was a pleasant one. Just a laid back, no-frills, kick-back country place with lovely people. Thanks!

We stayed in the fall. This little place was a quiet break from a busy day. We enjoyed our room, although the walls were a little thin. We could hear the woman in the next room, browbeating her poor husband most of the evening. The next day we met the same couple over a nicely set complimentary breakfast. The coffee was hot but the French Vanilla cream was mine.
Be sure to allow time to take a walk to the shore line. It is beautiful place to view Seneca Lake. We even found the waterfall on the property.

We stayed 3 nights at Lakeside.....the rooms and breakfast areas were very clean and the grounds were beautiful. Room was comfortable, with plenty of hot water, good TV stations, refrigerator, microwave and king size bed. Tony the owner was helpful and a pleasure to deal with. A great value for a wine tasting weekend.
