Hot Air Balloon Rides

Hot Air Balloon Rides from the Manor

We are delighted to offer balloon flights! We are working with the Liberty Balloon Company to offer you the opportunity to see some of New York’s loveliest scenery from the air. Depending on how the wind takes you, you can see Seneca Lake, many vineyards, Watkins Glen State Park, Watkins Glen International, and the dozens of lakes, parks, farms and waterfalls that make the Finger Lakes so beautiful. There is no experience like a hot air balloon ride!


Launches take place from our big field, a few steps from the Manor’s front door. There is plenty of parking on the field. Call us at 607-535-5437, or e-mail us at [email protected], or Liberty Balloon Company, at 585-243-3178, or 800-777-2359, or see Liberty Balloon’s website at We will work together to coordinate your stay and balloon flight.
You don’t need to be a guest at the Manor to launch from our field. Simply call or e-mail Liberty Balloon and tell them you’d like to take a balloon flight from Watkins Glen. Tell them you learned about it from our website.
