Magnolia Place is here for making memories, you will discover this as soon as you cross through the front door. A historic Inn, Magnolia Place was brought to life in 1837 as a farmhouse, made from the very trees felled on the grounds on which she stands. As you look out at Seneca Lake and the vineyards before you from our porch, your breath will be taken away at the beauty of the largest of New York’s Finger Lakes. Nestled in the nexus of New York’s finest wineries, you will find endless opportunities to make new memories that will last a life time, from wine and brewery tours and tastings, enjoying the pristine waters of Seneca Lake, experiencing the spectacular waterfalls in the many state parks, many local museums, to endless hiking trails. Magnolia Place is only minutes from Watkins Glen International Speedway and in addition, Cornell University and Ithaca College are just a short drive away. The area has many unique shopping opportunities and the culinary options are varied. With all this to offer, Magnolia Place provides the perfect balance between modern elegance and historic charm.
