Welcome to Gathering Hill Farm
Gathering Hill Farm is a large, gracious home on the Seneca Lake Scenic Bypass. It is a full house rental, making it perfect for groups, large or small. It is an 8 acre estate with indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces and lovely views of Seneca Lake. There are private gardens, a deck with seating for outdoor meals, mowed fields for games and picnics, fruit trees and berries, as well as plenty of parking. Enjoy sitting on the patio with friends, gathering around the fire pit in the evening, watching the sunset from the front porch or walking to one of the nearby wineries for a tasting or a bite!
Gathering Hill Farm is just outside of Watkins Glen and minutes from some of the best restaurants and wineries in the region. Ithaca is only 30 min away and charming Trumansburg is just 15. The Farm's location on the East side of the lake puts you in the perfect position to explore in all directions! Take your pick of breathtaking walks in the area parks with magical waterfalls or head to the lake for a day of sailing or a dinner cruise. Your local manager, Katie, is extremely knowledgable about the local events and has connections in the food and wine community. Do you have a special event to celebrate or want to arrange a outing for a group? Let Katie help with ideas and arrangements!
Spend a day at the Corning Glass Museum, check out the Watkins Glen International NASCAR race track or plan a tour of the wineries, breweries, cider houses and distilleries all up and down the lake. Drive into Ithaca for a concert or a show, walk the botanical gardens at Cornell or visit the I.M. Pei designed art museum overlooking Cayuga Lake. Greek Peak Mountain is open year round with winter and summer activities for the whole family. Come in the Spring when the fruit trees are blooming or the summer with all the festivals and events to chose from. There is no better place in the world to see the Fall colors than the Finger Lakes and the winter is a wonderful time to cross country ski or just put a fire in the stove and watch the snow fall.
Whether you are here for a event or to enjoy the company of friends and family in any season, come and gather in the most welcoming home in the Finger Lakes, Gathering Hill Farm.
