About Susan Barnes

Susan Barnes, Owner

Born and raised in a small village just outside of Edinburgh, Scotland where her family owned and operated a small full service hotel. Upon leaving home and many travels, Susan decided to settle in the great Finger Lakes Region in upstate New York. She chose the area because it reminds her so much of Scotland. Susan can be found picking fruit on the farm or selling gorgeous locally grown produce on the farm stand.

Cathy Barnes, Manager

Cathy has spent most of the last 20 years living in and loving upstate New York. She is entering her final year of college for hospitality management. When she is not digging in the gardens, pruning trees or serving customers on the farm stand, Cathy works at the local Cornell Cooperative Extension office assisting with adminstrative duties and marketing.

Susan Barnes purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Susan Barnes chose Hector

The family decided to settle in the Finger Lakes Region some 30 years ago because it reminded them so much of Scotland. Now, we would like to share a wee piece of Scotland with you! We truly hope you enjoy your stay in the Buchanan Suite, which is named after our clan. Take a left or right turn from the farm and we promise you will not be disappointed!

Perfect small getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Great small getaway for 2 in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine country with more wineries to visit than you have time for. Beautiful views all around the area and the owners were very welcoming. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

This little apartment had everything we needed for our stay. The bed is very comfortable. It is a simple, well appointed place to stay. We have stayed here twice and will stay again.

Terrific place, simple, clean and quiet. Susan and Cathy are great hosts. They even left us snacks in the fridge for our late arrival.

Comfortable, clean cottage apartment. Easy 10 minute drive to Watkins Glen for beautiful Gorge hike - a must. Easy access to wineries. Within a mile of wonderful "Stonecat" restaurant. About 30 minutes to Ithaca where we enjoyed the beautiful Cornell Botanical Gardens.

Great location for the outdoor enthusiast, beautiful natural surroundings

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to write this review and would prefer to keep this place all to myself. Small suite with modest kitchen and bedroom with a dining area. Comfortable enough for a 1 week stay for two people and a dog. The kitchen is suitable for cooking simpler meals, but not well equipped utensil wise. There is a dining area outside the suite under the tree. Awesome location if you like biking and hiking. The view from the hillsides are beautiful. The National Forest is nearby with lots of trails. The back roads are excellent for biking if you avoid the gravel roads. Even 414 has a wide shoulder, stunning views of the lake and good riding, except on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. The nearest grocery is 5 miles away in Watkins Glen. Lots of Vineyards, Orchards, Farmers Markets, Brewery's and sophisticated dining nearby.

I prefer this property due to it's natural beauty and there are few choices in this category nearby. The suite is in a Cherry Orchard inter planted with flower and herb beds. There is white steepled church next door. Rows of Concord grapes and an apple orchard surround the property. Located in the Village of Hector at a crossroads, across the street from a convenience store, close to the road, but still quiet. Comfortable, affordable, awesome location and they take well behaved dogs.
