Sunrise Landing on Seneca Lake to Begin New Season on April 14 With Reduced Opening Rates.

The beginning of a new season on Seneca Lake is so exciting. Spring is in the air, the lake and the sky are a gorgeous blue, and the robins are busy finding twigs to build their nests.  At Sunrise Landing we are also busy getting ready for a new season to begin April 14. Spring Cleaning has been well on its way with all the essentials of the deep cleaning we do each year at the beginning of the season. Bob has been taking down the fencing that was put up in the fall to keep the deer  and other wildlife from feasting on our landscaping - and on the inside painting and ...

Graft, A Watkins Glen Wine and Cider Bar

Now that Sunrise Landing is closed until mid April, the innkeepers can do a little exploring of their own.  Having begun that mission in earnest - we have made a wonderful discovery - Graft! It's one of the newest sensations in Watkins Glen. The decor is chic and the food extremely creative. They offer an extensive menu of small bites but most plates are meant to be shared by two. The chef is Christina McKeough who was the original owner of Hazelnut Kitchen in Trumansburg.   Our first visit, Bob and I  stuck to our favorites - we both had a classic Caesar Salad made ...

Banana Muffins

Williams Sonoma is one of my  favorite sources for yummy recipes that always work. This one I have been making since we opened our Bed and Breakfast almost 11 years ago. It is from their muffin cook book. However,  I had purchased a gluten free flour mixture that claimed to be exchangeable 1-1 in any recipe and last week we had a guest who required a gluten free diet and  I thought I would try it. Not  only did it work, but the muffins were better than ever. We served them to all our guests and one asked for the recipe. The recipe follows and for the flour, use all ...

New Philosophy at Suzanne Fine Regional Cuisine

The landmark Townsend home, built in 1903,  was carefully transformed into a restaurant by Robert and Suzanne Stack and opened over a decade ago as Suzanne Fine Regional Cuisine. Two downstairs lake-facing rooms were converted into one cozy dining room offering magnificent views of Seneca Lake.
