Recent Skaneateles Lake reviews

  • Wonderful week at a very special lakeside retreat

    "We had a wonderful family vacation at this Skaneateles Lake retreat. Our hosts, Janet and John, were very gracious. The lake was beautiful. We particularly enjoyed morning and evening kayak and canoe excursions. The accommodations were extremely clean and the cottage very cozy. The location is excellent for easy day trips to some beautiful state parks. Would recommend Watkins Glen, Taughannock Falls and Chimney Bluffs in particular. They are beautiful and within easy distance of the "Camp." And a more picturesque Finger Lakes town than Skaneateles would be hard to come by. We are looking forward to a return visit!! The Duhamels"

  • Rustic Railcar, Amazing Dock on Beautiful Lake!

    "We were pleased with the Railcar as soon as we pulled up, and once we saw the dock, we were even more pleased! Sipping coffee in the early morning on the dock, while watching the mist move across the lake and listening to the fish jump, was my favorite part of the whole trip! The pictures were spot-on, and the railcar could definitely accommodate for 8+ people. Yes, the hallways are narrow, but it's a RAILCAR! We found everything we needed (yes, my husband found the TV remote and was able to watch his News. LOL) and there were plenty of blankets for the cold nights and games for the whole family. The owners are very nice and accommodating, and are willing to answer any questions you may have before, during, and after your stay! Skaneateles Lake is GORGEOUS!"

  • Highly recommended!

    "We just returned from an incredible week at Shotwell Cottage! The place is perfect for a relaxing and overall very enjoyable getaway. Location can't be beat just a couple of miles from Skaneateles Village. The cottage and cabin are a "great duo" with both having 2 BR's and a bath, and the screened in porch is ideal as a comfortable and scenic place to see the lake, eat breakfast/dinner, and/or relax, read, or play games. The yard area is flat and looks out beautifully on the lake with the dock area just a few steps below with lounge chairs, a picnic table, and a perfectly placed grill to cook out. My daughter and other family members swam daily and made great use of everything Shotwell had to offer. Owners Steve and Sheila were a pleasure to deal with. We were greeted enthusiastically and given a nice tour of the place when we arrived and enjoyed lots of conversation with them being that they also have a background in the NYC area where we are from. Can't say enough about the experience. We hope to be back next summer!"
