About Dawn Sevilla

When I was growing up my parents took us to Watkins Glen and we hiked through the gorge. I really enjoyed the waterfalls. Many years later my husband and I came back to celebrate a wedding anniversary. We walked through the gorge and it was as beautiful as I remembered it. After the gorge we stopped at Lakewood Vineyards and had our first ever wine tasting. That was about 15 years ago and we have been coming back ever since. We are always finding something new to do in the area. There are so many festivals and events that there are some we are still trying to find the time to attend.

Dawn Sevilla purchased this house in 2013

Why Dawn Sevilla chose Watkins Glen

What we enjoy about the property we have is the location. We are not in the center of town but rather just on the edge of town. We have a lake and harbor view and are close enough to town to walk to restaurants and town events.

Nice property, loved the front porch!

Dawn was very easy to work with and replied to any question promptly. The house was very clean. The bedding was comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. We loved sitting on the front porch. I would stay here again.

Loved our stay !

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for a trip to wine country in the Finger Lakes area ! We also did the Gorge Trail at Watkins Glen State Park . It was a short drive to the International Speedway, Corning Glass and even a mall nearby if you get a rainy day ! Spacious and well equipped with everything we needed ! Would definitely recommend this house !

Fantastic views, Great location, Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This home was immaculate and had everything we needed when we got there! The location was great, within walking distance from the restaurants, shops, and gorge trails! The front porch views were amazing, and despite sitting on a main road it was pretty quiet. The owner was very accommodating and informative prior to and during our stay. I look forward to staying here again!

Five Star Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Late July was Girls Weekend in Watkins Glenn for five of us. We had a wonderful time and everyone LOVED the house.

The bedrooms were comfortable, the kitchen was large, and the lake view from the front porch was terrific. This is a charming house with lots of character and we really enjoyed our stay. The house has one bathroom but that was not an issue--even with 5 people staying.

The home is on a main road in and out of Watkins Glen, so we were worried about traffic noise at night--but night-time was very quiet and we didn't hear jake brakes or any other traffic noise. Dawn, the owner, was very responsive anytime I had a question and even made it possible for us to get into the house a few hours early. We look forward to these annual weekends and this house really added to our enjoyment of Watkins Glen. Thank you Dawn for being so easy to work with. I'd recommend this property to anyone looking for a great rental location in Watkins Glen.

Location

Nearest Airport
17 Miles
Elmira/Corning Regional Airport
Car: necessary

Property is located at the southern end of Seneca Lake within walking distance of town with shops, restaurants and bars, theater, bank, post office, parks, harbor, marina, churches and Catharine Valley Trail. Nearest grocery store is within a mile.

Drive the short distance to Watkins Glen State Park lower entrance to hike through the gorge with its many beautiful waterfalls. The more energetic may want to add to the hike by walking the few blocks from the house to the park entrance. Drive to the upper entrance to swim in the Olympic sized swimming pool.

There is lake swimming at Clute Park, Watkins Glen or Smith Memorial Park, Hector.

Visit the many wineries in the area for tastings and make stops along the cheese trail.

Watch fireworks from the front porch over July 4th and during the Italian Festival. Race fans will enjoy Watkins Glen International race track.

Short trips from the house can include Corning Glass Museum or Arnot Mall. For those who enjoy the waterfall and hiking be sure to plan side trips to other state parks in the area including Taughannock Falls, Buttermilk Falls and Letchworth State Park.
