The Watkins Brewery Vacation rentals project is the renovation of a building that has adorned the South tip of Seneca Lake in Watkins Glen, NY, for many years. The building is being turned into seven townhomes which will be rented weekly. This is a new business for the building as in its previous life has been a Brewery, Food Mill, Frozen Food Locker, housed Welch's Grape Juice, storage and various other operations. We wanted to bring this deteriatoring building back to life. It has been said, "this must be a labor or love", and it truly is.
It was the vision of Watkins Brewery, LLC, to take on this project and bring vacationers to our beautiful Finger Lakes area. After many months of submissions to various organizations such as The NYS Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation (OPRHP), The Department of Transportation, The Finger Lakes Railroad, etc, it became a reality on November 6, 2015 with a Champagne toast ground breaking on site. Many community members were present to wish us well on the new venture. Today we have many Senca Lakers and vacationers stoping by to check in on the progress - some even daily.
The construction crews are hard at work, but we can't blame to when they stop to take in all the views this project has to offer.
