 2018 rates

$169 per night  All first floor rooms!  All pet fees waived

Beautiful, friendly hotel with large walking area out back and many first floor rooms.  

Many of our hotel partners in New York give us a great room rate, accept multiple greyhounds (sighthounds), and waive all pet fees.  You can chose from VRBO rental cabins on Seneca lake, hotel or motel rooms, or various cabin and home rental properties.  Our hotels do not change much from year to year unless a new hotel comes online.  Two properties are new this year, Ramada Geneva Lakefront and Seneca Sol.   Unfortunately, hotels are city things and vineyards are country things.  They don't locate hotels in vineyards and they don't have wineries at hotels.  There is a race in Watkins Glen during our weekend this year which may drive up rates a bit.  Because our event takes place at wineries, we include hotels in neighboring towns like Geneva, Seneca Falls and Ithaca.   

 Book your room early.  You must telephone the desk of these hotels at the number provided below to book your room at these rates with pet fees waived.  If you book through any 800 national website, you don't get these rates, waived pet fees, etc.   Most hotel rates on this page have been updated for 2018.

Fills up early. 
Seneca Lodge is a greyt place to stay.  It features a motel (no dogs), cabins (two dogs max)  and a great restaurant.  Reservations are full by January.  The Lodge implemented a two dog limit against our best advice.  While cottages are usually booked by this time every year, their motel sometimes has rooms for those without greyhounds.
