Seneca Clipper Inn

Our name reflects the love we have for Seneca Lake and the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York. Seneca Clipper Inn is a ten-minute walk to the Watkins Glen State Park, a mile from the southern shore of Seneca Lake and only a 4-mile drive to Watkins Glen International racetrack.

Look for the Clipper Ship on our hand-crafted sign out front replete with nautical signal flags! The nautical theme is carried on in the rooms with deck chairs and maritime inspired quilts in our handcrafted knotty pine walls of our cottage-inspired cozy rooms.

Providing an ideal mix of value, comfort and convenience, it offers a budget friendly setting with an array of amenities designed for travelers like you.

The ambience of our Cape Cod style Inn welcomes you to a time when inn-keeping was what it was meant to be for the intrepid traveler. A port in the storm. A place to relax and unwind. Victorian screened gazebo shaded by trees on the lawn, offers our guests a place to sip wine, enjoy ice cream from Glen Dairy just across the street or check your e-mails in a garden setting!
