New York’s Finger Lakes region is widely recognized as a leisure travel destination. With an abundance of world renowned wineries, the area is a haven for oenophiles and neophytes alike, but it is also home to a nationally recognized State Park, an internationally celebrated racetrack and this Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast for sale.
The Finger Lakes Region is rife with outstanding wineries, distilleries and breweries and their respective “tasting trails”. However, the Seneca Lake Wine Trail is the most active in the state and is home to 30+ award-winning wineries (in addition to a distillery, several breweries, hard cider producers and a meadery!). Many of these wineries and tasting rooms are within walking distance of the Inn. Admittance to outstanding area attractions, luckily, is not limited to those 21 years and older.
One all-ages-option is Watkins Glen International. Situated on the southern tip of Seneca Lake, this world renowned automobile racetrack hosted the Formula One United States Grand Prix for 20 consecutive years in addition to road racing of every class. A mecca of North American road racing, the track is a popular draw from spring through fall, holding races, as well as the wildly popular Finger Lakes Wine Festival and Finger Lakes Beer Festival. From time to time the track hosts concerts and festivals, including, in 2015, Phish’s Magnaball Festival.
Watkins Glen State Park is close at hand and is a huge draw to the area. The most popular of the Finger Lakes State Parks, Watkins Glen boasts, among other attractions, a two mile stream that descends 400 feet, past 200-foot cliffs, generating 19 waterfalls. In 2015, the park took third place in a USA TODAY Readers’ Choice Poll for Best State Parks in the United States.
While spinning wheels, winding waterfalls and winning wines all draw leisure travelers to the area, Cornell University, Ithaca College and Elmira College, all in very close proximity, are another source of guests.
The Inn boasts eight guestrooms, all with private baths, air conditioning and Wi-Fi, while several rooms have Jacuzzis, private verandahs and fireplaces. Public spaces include a living room with wood burning fireplace, a breakfast/event room and a sweeping verandah with vineyard and lake views. With 10+/- acres, there is an opportunity for new owners to expand the business (building a separate owner’s quarters or additional guest accommodations).
The Finger Lakes region of New York is a proven leisure travel destination, but it will also provide an outstanding lifestyle for the new Innkeepers of this Finger Lakes Bed and Breakfast for Sale.
