Springs Retreat is a two-story cabin that is surrounded by woods and wildlife. This escape from the hustle and bustle of modern life is conveniently located less than three miles from Watkins Glen International and the Watkins Glen gorge. Springs Retreat makes a great end to a day on the Seneca Lake Wine Trail. The cabin, the only building on a 12 acre wooded lot, is landscaped with hosta, myrtle, and other shade-tolerant plants and shrubbery. There is a garden pond, a flowing bird bath, and a fountain… all in view of the two comfortable chairs on the front porch. The cabin is constructed in an open style and is suited best to couples or small families looking to get away for a week or weekend to spend quality time with each other and their surroundings. Wildlife such as white-tail deer, turkey, grouse, rabbits, chipmunks, and song birds are common visitors to the peaceful landscape.
“The stay was better than we had expected. The cabin is close to all local attractions while it provides the privacy you need. The kids loved to explore the surroundings, have campfires, feed the chickens and pick up the eggs from the coop. It was interesting to read the history about areas and how the cabin was built. The book collection on the second floor was amazing. Both Bob and Donna were excellent hosts! Definitely ask Bob for local tips.”

“We absolutely loved the days we spent at Barb and BJ's place. It was super easy to arrive. The communication with them was always great, but the most outstanding was the beautiful place and apartment. It was fully equipped, had everything we might need, and more, and they were even kind enough to leave us some snacks. The place is really close to Watkins Glens and Seneca Wine Trail by car, and we wished we could've visited the Corning Glass Museum (closed due to COVID-19, but very close by car). Really great location. We certainly had a great time and would absolutely recommend the place.”

“We were given a chance to get away for a weekend and while we were really excited to have just an adult weekend we were also really nervous to travel in this uncertain time. Thank you for making it that much easier by providing a pristine space which we felt extremely safe to be in. The space is charming, efficient, and well thought out. We also appreciate being able to use the paddle board and kayak. The experience, view, and cleanliness definitely made this a great experience and great location to visit wineries and breweries on both Seneca and Keuka Lake. Jason also had a great welcome book that provided history of the space and suggestions for places to visits and activities. We used one of his suggestions and went on a great short hike that we were rewarded by a beautiful waterfall and breathtaking nature views. We want to thank Jason and his family for the hospitality, flexibility, and generosity.”
