2017 rates

$169 per night All pet fees waived

Beautiful, friendly hotel with large walking area out back and many first floor rooms.  

Many of our hotel partners in New York give us a great room rate, accept multiple greyhounds (sighthounds), and waive all pet fees.  You can chose from VRBO rental cabins on Seneca lake, hotel rooms, or various cabin and home rental properties.  Our hotels do not change much from year to year unless a new hotel comes online, which is rare.

Watkins Glen is the closest town to our event but many hotels in Watkins Glen do not accept pets.  Unfortunately, hotels are city things and vineyards are country things.  They don't locate hotels in vineyards and they don't have wineries at hotels.  Because our event takes place at wineries, we include hotels in neighboring towns like Geneva, Seneca Falls and Ithaca.    Book your room early.  You must telephone the desk of these hotels at the number provided below to book your room at these rates with pet fees waived.  If you book through any 800 national website, you don't get these rates, waived pet fees, etc. We are working to update htel rates for this summer.  Some hotels which have not worked out a new rate with us still show their 2016 rates.
