Welcome to a slice of way back when. Nestled in the heart of New York wine country and five minutes from the Watkins Glen International Raceway, Seneca Lake, sunset cruises, funky antique shops, peaceful waterfalls, winding trails, world class restaurants, wineries, breweries and tasting rooms, this farmhouse built in 1860 is flooded with light, fresh breeze and a laid back attitude. The moment you open the door, you'll take a deep breath and say, "I could definitely relax here." Five rooms are available: • The Green Room, king bed • The Burgundy Room, queen bed • The Wrought Iron Room, full bed • The White Room, two twin beds and a Pack and Play crib • The Downstairs Room, queen bed -- there is also a fold out couch for one person on the first floor. All rooms offer wireless Internet with central air, ceiling fans or windows that open for fresh air. Evenings welcome you back to a relaxing front porch or fenced-in backyard -- pets welcome. The house is completely furnished with four bedrooms upstairs, and one bedroom on the first floor. There are two full bathrooms, one on each floor, one combined with a first floor laundry room with washer and dryer, as well as a fully equipped kitchen, kitchen nook, pantry, and formal dining room with comfy dog couch and living/sleeping room. There is plenty of parking, including for trailers (just park in the public area across the street) and a fenced-in large back yard to enjoy the fire pit at sunset. Smoking is prohibited inside the house. Occupancy is limited to 10 children/adults plus an infant on the property. Includes WiFi, linens, towels, blankets and pillows, basic spices, dish soap, trash bags, cleaning supplies, toilet paper, paper towels, and propane for gas grill. There are many kid games, stuffed animals and toys. You are expected to leave the house in the same condition in which you found it; however no need for vacuuming or deep cleaning -- please leave beds unmade upon departure. Check-in is at 4 pm and checkout at noon.
