Corning NY Mid-Week Getaway: Day 1


We spent three nights the week of October 17th in Corning, NY.

We left for Corning on October 19th at 9:20 am.  

We stopped in Cuba NY at the Cuba Cheese Shoppe and at The Perfect Blend Coffeehouse & Eatery.  We bought habanero cheese and butterscotch cookies at Cuba Cheese.  At the coffeehouse we had a mid-morning snack–coffee and tea and two chocolate with peanut butter frosting muffins.  The muffins were delicious!

We would have arrived in Corning too early to check in at our accommodation, so we drove to Watkins Glen first. 

We enjoyed a stroll at Seneca Lake Harbor, before leaving for Corning.

We stopped at Wegmans in Corning to pick up a few grocery items that we felt were needed for our 3-night getaway.

From Wegmans we drove to our Airbnb “Home Away From Home”.  It was a short drive, as Wegmans is only a mile away.    Check-in was 2:00 pm, and our arrival time was around 2:30 pm. We carried in our stuff from the car and got settled in for our 3-night stay. 

This was our third stay at “Home Away From Home”.  Our first stay was for one night in January 2019.  That was our very first stay, as well, at an Airbnb.  Our second stay was for three nights in April 2019.

Since our stay 2 1/2 years ago we noted some changes throughout the house.  In the living room the couch was different.  The new couch doesn’t recline like the old one.  The old one didn’t work properly, so the new couch is an improvement. The coffee table is different too, as is the tv and the stand it sits on. 

The TV stand has an electric fireplace.
The TV stand was a very nice aesthetic improvement!

The fireplace has several temperature settings and does generate sufficient heat to take the chill out of the living room.  I LOVE the new TV stand.  Maybe one day we can replace our TV stand with one similar to this one. 

In the bathroom the window on the bathtub wall is now frosted.  I don’t believe anyone could have seen in that window, but it is another improvement that we especially liked. In the kitchen there is a new table and chairs.  One of the bedrooms now has a TV.  All of the changes were nice improvements.

I noticed as we entered the living room, a gift bag on the coffee table.  Lucas gave us two Corning “Crystal City” wine glasses.  He is a thoughtful host.  Lucas gifted us a Corning coffee cup, when we stayed there in April 2019.

Another thoughtful touch was this flower arrangement in the kitchen.

We brought the makings for chili with us.  We had chili for dinner, accompanied with tortilla chips and salsa.

I was in bed by 9:00 pm.  Bob followed me about an hour later.

    Hello,
    The AirBnb sounds wonderful, a very nice owner too. The first view of the Seneca Lake is pretty. The TV stand and fireplace are very nice. Pretty flowers. Have a great weekend!

    The fireplace looks so cozy! I love any kind of travel trip – near or far, any season, motel or travel trailer. It’s all fun to me! I am looking forward to reading about what you did in Corning. Looks like a really nice AirBnb, too!

    What a great place to stay especially in the fall; i know i’d love it too. There’s nothing like a fireplace and the placement of this one under the tv is absolutely wonderful. Have a great stay at your home away from home!

    That B&B sounds like a wonderful accommodation and with a thoughtful host as well. I liked the electric fireplace/TV stand and we have been considering one as well.
