Historic 1922 Starkey House Bed: A Seneca Lake Bed and Breakfast

Guests marvel at the capitivating stained glass windows as they enter the living room for a stay at the
Starkey House located just north of Watkins Glen in the Finger Lakes.

When I purchased the house in 1999, thirteen years ago, I saw the potential it had for becoming a bed and breakfast.

It is centrally located so that guests can take in any event, eat out, walk a state park, visit museums, and taste wine in less than a half hour, in most cases.

As guests began to arrive, they especially appreciated the architecture of the Starkey House that dates back to the "Arts and Crafts" or "Craftsman" period. They find the house to be spacious and their rooms comfortable but, overall, get a sense of being home during their "stay-cation."

1922 Starkey House is situated along the Seneca Lake Wine Trail, just minutes from Glenora Wine Cellars, Lakewood Vineyards, Starkey 's Lookout, Prejean Winery, and Magnus Ridge Winery, just to name a few.

It is also just minutes from Mennonite farm markets and close to farms that produce the dairy and goat cheeses, so popular on the Cheese Trail.

Within the past few years, craft breweries and distilleries have been locating themselves successfully, to provide more for guests to see and do when visiting.
