Built in 1892, the Idlwilde Inn is an beautiful 18-room Victorian mansion and a favorite Watkins Glen bed and breakfast. Our historic inn sits on two and a half acres in a park-like setting with a great lawn, formal gardens and Finger Lake views. This charming house has a character given by exquisite craftsmanship of an earlier era, with a meticulously detailed staircase, moldings, ornamental ceilings and nine decorative fireplaces. There are several sunrooms, a romantic cupola room and a huge breezy wrap-around porch, all overlooking the beauty of Seneca Lake.
