Property description

Please note: I am no longer able to accept guests for stays of less than 30 days as Skaneateles Village officials have decided that short-term renters are no longer welcome for stays of less than thirty days. If you are interested to learn more, there is a public hearing on a new proposed law on December 1, 2015.

I wish to thank all my past guests as it's been a joy to welcome you to my house and the Village of Skaneateles. If anything changes, I'll be sure to let you know. Best wishes, Victoria Phelps Bratt

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I grew up in the New York City area, enjoying all the cultural amenities the city had to offer. After vacationing in Skaneateles in my early 20's, my family moved to this enchanting lakeside community in 1986 and bought our village home in 1999. During my career, I've traveled all over the world yet have never found a place as beautiful as Skaneateles. Our village has so much to offer including it's pristine lake, world class music, summer theater, lakeside festivals, dining, shopping, a wineries, and so much more. We are making our village home newly available for leasing.

Why the Owner Chose Skaneateles:
This was one of the very first homes built in Skaneateles, still having it's original clapboard siding, brick walls and hand-hewn beams. It is nestled among 100 year old trees, and looks out over a gorgeous backyard. You will love the porches!..perfect for relaxing for hours and days on end!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The first floor has an open floor plan and is perfect for family and friend gatherings. There is a gourmet kitchen and two working gas fireplaces on the first floor (living room & Kitchen/Dining area). All the second floor bedrooms have custom painted cathedral ceilings with exposed hand-hewn beams throughout. The Master Bedroom has a four-poster Bed, french doors and a private deck with seasonal lake views.
