The Cupola above Seneca sits high above Seneca Lake and Watkins Glen. Our enviable location is two miles from Watkins Glen State Park, Watkins Glen International Racetrack, as well as numerous restaurants and shopping. We are also a mile from the Glorious-T of Montour Falls and the spectacular Shequaga Falls. Take a stroll through “the T,” stop for coffee and sweets, and take in the impressive scenery or hop onto the Catherine Valley Trail that follows the old Chemung Canal. We are centrally located near the Seneca Lake wine and beer trails on BOTH the west and east sides (25 wineries within 20 mins)! The Keuka Lake and Cayuga Lake wine and beer trails are a short scenic drive away as well. A beautiful drive through the hillside farms brings you to Ithaca in 25 minutes. For shopping and great restaurants, the famous Corning Gaffer District is a 20-minute enjoyable drive to our south.
