Guestbook comments from the manager

I will try to sum this up: quiet, clean, full kitchen, BBQ on patio, 2 bathrooms..yes 2 bathrooms!!!, too many TV channels to watch and get this- full size laundry machines!!! Oh and I forgot, in the middle of Watkins Glen... All restaurants within short walk... the Glen itself is about a 2.5 minute walk. Owner answers the phone every time on first few rings... I have stayed here a few times so this is why I know this to be true. I could go on... coffee machine..microwave...full size fridge... starting to get the picture??? My Fiance Irina loves it here too!!! For us, this is the only place to stay in Watkins Glen...oh ps the racetrack is a short drive up the hill for you racers and fans alike... Enjoy!!!

Great house in great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a two suite home which can comfortably accommodate up to 17 people. One suite has two bedrooms; the other suite has three bedrooms. The house is located one street away from the main drag, which allows for a peaceful night's sleep yet still being close to the action. Everything is a short walk in either direction - one way to Watkins Glen State Park and the other way to downtown Watkins Glen. You are in the heart of it all! The house is nicely furnished with all the comforts of home. There were plenty of towels, bedding, seating, breakfast items (fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, etc.) for our stay. The kitchen is fully equipped. There is a cute bistro set on the front porch for people watching or enjoying the view while enjoying a sip of wine or your morning coffee. Each suite has its own separate porch/patio area with a grill. Houses are very close together, but it adds to the charm of the neighborhood. This is an older (maybe century?) home, but its character will win you over! Travis is your host who is easy to reach and gives you your privacy during your stay. We definitely will be staying here again in the future!

Amazing house rental

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to vacation.. The house is literally right next to The gorge trail and walking distance from everything.. The owner of the house is more then accommodating, he let us check in super late on Friday night and stocks the house with snacks and breakfast items.. We come to Watkins glen quite a bit and this is our 1st place we try to book when we plan.. Travis does a great job with the home and he is very reasonable on his pricing.,

Race Weekend Work Trip

  • 5 of 5

This property was a perfect fit for my colleagues and I while we worked at Watkins Glen International during the week. The location was perfect as it was walking distance to all restaurants downtown. It was also a short drive to the track which made the early mornings a little better! The house was clean and all the main amenities you would need were included. I would definitely consider renting this property again if we are back next year!

Wedding weekend in Watkins Glen

  • 5 of 5

The Madison guest house was everything we expected from previous reviews we had read. Travis was incredibly easy to work with and while we didn't need to contact him during our stay, he made himself readily available if there was anything we needed during our wedding weekend. Accommodations were comfortable and all necessary amenities were provided. Breakfast foods were provided and came in handy for everyone. I only wish there was a slightly larger yard but we still managed to use the only flat space out front to play cornhole. Overall, it was an amazing weekend that my new wife Nancy and I will never forget. Thanks Travis!
