WBM Travel: Destination Fingerlakes–The Journey Continues, Watkins Glen

New York, New York– far more than the concrete jungle we have heard it is made of. New York is 54,556 miles, with a population of 19.45 million. No small numbers.

But once you leave the city–the mountainous terrains begin rolling in and a level of peace comes over you that can’t be explained.

As we continue our journey upstate, going further into the Finger Lakes, we are captivated by the natural beauty of the environment, and the fresh air.

 Watkin Glen Harbor Hotel is one of the AAA 4 Diamond rated Harbor Hotel Collection consisting of three hotels in Central and Western New York and two hotels in Portland Maine.

Watkins Glen Harbor Hotel has 104 guestrooms with over 6000 sq. ft. of meeting space which is perfect for your big wedding when it is safe to do so.

Suburban setting located in the heart of Finger Lakes Wine Country on Seneca Lake in Watkins Glen, New York.

It’s closest regional airport is Elmira Corning Airport, which is 17 miles/ 25 minutes away. The international airport – Greater Rochester International Airport – is 87 miles/1.5 hours away.

As we made our way into our room we had a lovely gift awaiting us, a beautiful bottle of wine. This time we have a dockside view of the Harbor. So beautiful. So peaceful.

We found the perfect Finger Lakes destination for a picturesque view. Talk about a beautiful wedding destination right in the heart of New York that will simply take your breath away. On a perfect morning, the sky is a perfect shade of blue. On a perfect night, right before sunset– it is breathtakingly beautiful. We had a full day of activities planned for us which included Watkins Glen State Park, winery tours and tastings, and a great dinner.

And once again customer service was impeccable. The friendly staff made sure we were well taken care of. The tour of the property was informative. It was very spacious for an indoor wedding when suitable, but why stay inside when you have the beauty of the great outdoors.

The town is lovely. The winery we had the pleasure of touring was wonderful and relaxing with a few guests of all ages enjoying the grounds and the spirits (the ones old enough to drink that is.). It makes a great activity for your traveling guests and a wonderful venue to host your rehearsal dinner if you choose to.

So whether you chose to plan your destination wedding or you are seeking a honeymoon hot spot… Watkin Glen, Seneca Lake is worthy of your time.
