It is an escape, pure and simple. Or, if you wish, it may be a retreat. Go back to an earlier time, where you can slow your pace to a halt. Where in spring, summer, and glorious fall you can enjoy the lake and its surroundings without interruption. Sure, cable and high speed internet are here. But we suggest that you lower their voices, and keep them in their place. Whatever the season, let your true host - the clear, sparkling Skaneateles Lake - speak to you and refresh your soul.
Shotwell Cottage and Guest Cabin sit on the west side of Skaneateles Lake, only two miles from the village of Skaneateles. The gray, shingled buildings are flanked by lawns to east and west, and bordered by tall, silent pines and hardwood trees that offer both beauty and privacy. Built before World War II, Shotwell evokes New England, Nantucket even. Despite renovations, the place remains unpretentious, with old school charm. Each morning the large screen porch overlooking lawn and lake brings in the sun. Rentals run from Saturday to Saturday, and the rental price includes coverage for both Shotwell Cottage and its Guest Cabin.
Fronting Shotwell Cottage is its east lawn, which leads down just 10 feet of stairs to 100 feet of private lakefront and Shotwell's permanent deck and dock. Sitting, snoozing, swimming, boating - the emblems of a good vacation - are here for the taking. A five burner gas grill lets you cook lakeside.
With its four bedrooms, two baths, a full kitchen, and a new washer/dryer, the secluded Shotwell complex is a reminder of vacations you once knew. The cottage can play quiet host to one family or with its neighboring cabin, to more family and friends. Use it at day's beginning and end as you sample the many pleasures of Skaneateles and the surrounding Finger Lakes region. Or, with the pull of the lake, just stay put at Shotwell and let it take hold. Enjoy!

Great Location and Excellent Rental
Great Location and Excellent Rental
We have rented in half a dozen different locations around the lake over the past 10 years. This is by far our favorite. Being close (but not too close) to town is a huge plus and having 2 buildings with a bathroom in each gave us plenty of elbow room. The lawn is nice and level and the dock is perfect for early morning kayacking. The high speed internet service was also fast & reliable with good coverage around the entire property. We will be back.
