Description of the Elmira vacation home rental
Treat yourself to a royal getaway where you can be the king and queen of your own castle. Cross the moat and climb stone steps to the top of the hill where the castle awaits.
This 1927 three-bedroom Tudor home is furnished with a king, queen and one full bed.
The house has a well-stocked kitchen with pots, pans, both formal and everyday dishes, spices, olive oil, soy sauce, Pop-Tarts, etc. The dining room seats six. The living room has a leather loveseat and a few chairs, and a door that leads to an outdoor deck. There is a full bath upstairs and a half bath downstairs.
While at the Castle, enjoy hi-speed internet, cable TV, DVD player and an assortment of movies, CD player with iPod docking station and a selection of CDs, and clock radios by each bed. There is a small library of classics and several good magazines. There is off-street parking for three cars.
Missing the wardrobe of royalty? We've got you covered. Try on our dress-up clothes. It's just for fun.

October 26, 2015

We rented The Castle on Glen for six nights in mid-October, 2015. The reservation process, check-in, and check-out arrangements were very efficient. The owner, Kitty, was quite responsive with return email and telephone calls, answering all our questions. Upon arrival, Kitty had provided a "Welcome Basket" complete with bagels, cheese, snacks, coffee, tea, etc., and even a bottle of wine. Non-perishable items left by prior renters were also present, such as various pastas, sauces, cans of vegetables, condiments, etc. The house itself was completely stocked with everything you would need for an extended and comfortable stay. The unique castle design of the house, both inside and outside, made our stay extra special. The house was very clean; the beds were comfortable. We enjoyed sight-seeing and activities in the area, specifically Watkins Glen State Park (spectacular, especially this time of year), the National Soaring Museum, the "Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania", Corning Museum of Glass, Tioga Downs, and other sights. The house has many travel guides and tourist information brochures. If we ever plan a follow-up visit to the area, we will definitely try to stay at The Castle on Glen again. Thank you, Kitty, for making our mini-vacation a special event.
