Chieftain Motel

Watkins Glen, NY


Updated 2021  Rooms available as of 7/12/21.

Call hotel directly for best rate.  2021 rate, just $79-$109 per night.    One pr two beds.    Just north of Watkins Glen on west shore.   Just 9.6 miles from Catharine Valley Winery.   There is a refundable pet fee of $25 per dog which is refunded at checkout if there's no damage or excessive cleaning required.  

Sned Acres offers friendly staff, Wi-Fi, a pool, acres of grass to walk your dogs, trailer rentals, fire grates and even a view of Cayuga Lake!  It's about four miles from Rte. 414 in Ovid, NY.

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.  Campgrounds are listed at bottom of page.  Our hotels do not change much from year to year unless a new hotel comes online. 

There is some driving involved between your accommodations and the wineries.   People often ask me, "Where can I stay that's close to the wineries."   Unfortunately, hotels are city things and vineyards are country things (farms).  They don't put hotels in vineyards and they don't place vineyards in hotel parking lots.  The closest accommodations to wineries are likely some of the B & B's or cabins listed here or on Vacation Rental by Owner (VRBO).    Because our event takes place at wineries, we include hotels in neighboring towns like Geneva,   Seneca Falls, Ithaca, and the area north of Watkins Glen (closest).   

Hotels in Ithaca are closer to Catharine Valley than the hotels north of Seneca Lake in Geneva or Seneca Falls.  Plus they are in the middle of stores and dining, unlike most hotels around Seneca Lake, which are out in the country

 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.     Current rates are indicated with each listing.

Bring Fido  You may also book a room near our event at BringFido.com.  Be sure to compare their rates with the hotels on this page where we have a discounted room block, good rates and reduced or waived pet fees (where you must call the hotel diretly).    Compare details!

That said, Bring Fido will donate $10 to The Grapehound Wine Tour, Inc. if you book on BringFido.com and use the code Grapehound2021 at checkout.
