Clifftop is a 17 acre paradise, with unforgettable Sunset, Seneca Lake, and village views. Perched atop a bluff and high above the lake, enjoy your very own private compound, only 1 mile from the center of Watkins Glen, at the gateway to the east Seneca Lake Wine Trail.
Hike along thousands of feet of cliff top trails, then descend into a magnificent gorge with several waterfalls, flanked by hemlock, periwinkle, and incredible stone formations. Take an hour or a day; relax and re-invigorate within this private natural paradise. Hike back up to the many cliff top nature trails and take in the bee balm, shaded canopy, and daily visits by the bald eagles and osprey that inhabit our area.
Or “stay-put.” Kick back on the deck or lawn directly in front of your deluxe room. Sun bathe, nap, or simply enjoy the sailboats, western bluffs, and village below.
The Rookery, their upper level hemlock lodge, has 2 king bedrooms (one is a suite.) Both have lovely baths, with oversize soaker tubs and showers. The full kitchen and entry room provide plenty of elbow room, and 3 patio doors lead to the 50’x 10’ deck, located 200’ above the lake, below. Take in the magnificent star show, or cozy up in the large living room by the gas fireplace. Barbecue on the outdoor patio, just off the kitchen.
The first Level Osprey Cottage is an oversized studio apartment with full kitchen, king bed, and deluxe bathroom (large soaker tub & shower.) Beautiful views from the cottage and its private patio and lawn, perched high above the lake. Osprey Cottage also has an adjacent fire pit and full barbecue area.
Enjoy one of our local brews or a glass of award winning wine and debate whether the daytime vistas or the magnificent nighttime light show (stars & Watkins lights) is your favorite view.
