This apartment in a remodeled farm-house is your home away from home while you explore the Finger Lakes. Steps from one of the best known restaurants in the area, the Guest House is one of the few locations on the lake that puts you within walking distance of amazing dining, an extensive FLX wine list, and world class seasonal cocktails. Enjoy the day on the wine trail, then park your car and enjoy a fine dining experience, or relax on the deck and take in the sunset!

The space

Our Apartment features a spacious bedroom with king-size bed, private full bath, cozy sitting area with stone fireplace, fully appointed kitchen, large common area (with pull-out couch for additional guests), sliding glass doors and large windows leading out to a sun drenched deck overlooking vineyards and Seneca Lake. This apartment is your home away for home while you explore the Finger Lakes!

Chef Scott has stocked the kitchen with everything you need to prepare meals during your stay- sharp knives, quality cook-ware and fresh spices so you can unwind and enjoy the views as soon as you arrive.
Guests have the option of reserving the apartment kitchen fully stocked- from simple breakfast items like local bread, eggs and cheese, to a selection of house-made charcuterie, and even room service from the restaurant. We want you relax into Hector-life and feel at home as soon as you arrive! Please message us for details.

Guest access

You will have full access to the apartment during your stay, including the large screened in front porch and back deck overlooking the local vineyards. Property includes a large backyard off the deck and parking in front of the house.
Please note that the front porch and backyard are shared access for the Guest House and our Studio room. The Guest House has exclusive access to the back deck.

Interaction with guests

We are delighted to help you discover the Finger Lakes, but also understand that some guests are looking to explore on their own. We are happy to interact during your stay as much or as little as you like.

Other things to note

The Guest House is located right next door to one of the most popular restaurants in the Finger Lakes, the Stonecat Cafe. You are literally a step away from a delicious dinner, a seasonal sip in our Bar or a freshly prepared lunch or snack. Room service is also available to the Guest House!

The Guest House Apartment is outfitted with a smart TV and free Wi-Fi so you can enjoy your favorite programs at the end of your day.

Weekly and longer term rentals encouraged.

The Stonecat cafe, directly next door to the guest house, occasionally hosts live music (which may be audible from the guest house).

This is a great place to stay on the wine trail of Lake Seneca. The StoneCat Cafe is next door with good food and a nice view of the area on their outside deck. The place was clean, roomy with great views off the deck. Nice big kitchen with all the needed amenities! You are close to Watkins Glen with the Watkins Glen Gorge, raceway and True Love Schooner. Would return!!

Wonderful location to all the winery's & brewery's, and of course, right next to a great restaurant. We definitely recommend staying here. The house was perfect for us to relax & even make our own dinner & breakfast with a full kitchen.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the guest house. Very clean, comfortable bed and a great deck. The house is right on the main street in town with easy access to a lot of great wineries, breweries and distilleries. Also, it is right next door to the Stonecat restaurant which is a great place for a cocktail and dinner.

Easy access to Watkins Glen, State Parks, Ithaca, etc. The fact that there was a restaurant right next door (with EXCELLENT food!) was a definite plus! The apartment was much larger than the pictures depict. LOVED IT!

As a chef and dedicated locavore in the Finger Lakes, I'm delighted to offer The Stonecat Guest House as a launching pad (and resting spot) for visitors to the Finger Lakes and Hector, NY. This is an amazing place to live, eat and play, and I can't wait to share it with you! My hope is that the Guest House will be your home-away-from-home as you explore the area, taste new and exciting things and make friends with the folks that make this region so special.
