Truly Magical - Skaneateles Haven on the Lake Has it All!
"Magical is the best was to explain just how you feel the minute you walk into this property! That feeling of love and caring transcends to all and it is not long before you take that "yes, I made a good choice" sigh of relief!
Visiting the area for a family wedding held at Baltimore Woods and local apple festival over the Columbus Day weekend, I had the difficult decision of picking out a facility that would serve all, young and old - those looking to be active and others wanting to simply relax. Both my immediate and extended family had a wonderful time thanks to all that was available within this property or just a short drive away. As more family and friends visited throughout our stay, we had plenty of room, meals were easily handled with the fully stocked kitchen, dishes, and appliances - there are platters, bowels and baskets for every conceivable dish, and seating for a large crowd both inside and out. The beds are very comfortable, linens fantastic, and the washer and dryer let us return home to simply unpack after catching the stunning fall foliage!
Everything you could possible need is located within the cottage, boat house, or shed. This is a perfect place to pack a small bag, jump in the car and enjoy all that Skaneateles and its beautiful surrounding area has to offer. My entire family experienced a wonderful weekend, bonded, while also experiencing something new while together at such a lovely facility. Lou you are fantastic to work with - I thank you for such a wonderful weekend that allowed me to bring my family together, something this facility was made for and accomplished easily!
My only negative would be that the additional bunk house is quite small and as it was cold and rainy when we arrived on Friday, we did not end up using this area. I feel it would be quite warm during the summer months if four people were to sleep there but if you only want a place to lay you head after an active day - it could work."

"7 high school girlfriends shared our 55th birthday weekend here. Very comfortable beds and the morning sunrise in the front bedroom was spectacular....I felt like I was on a cruise ship. We had a beautiful fall weekend, with plenty to do in the area , close to town for window shopping and drinks."

Fantastic lake house, great for kids and relaxing.
"I've been visiting Skaneateles for many years and have stayed in most of the hotels and a number of houses. I must say that this was the best experience we have have had. We bought my 15 year old son, his 3 friends and my 18 year old daughter. The boys had an amazing time, hanging on the beach, fishing off the dock or playing ping pong in the basement. We also bought up our ski boat and moored it right off the dock. The house is setup nicely with the loft for the boys to sleep and separate bedrooms for the others. We would sit on the back deck and have coffee in the morning and watch the sun over the lake. The deck was so relaxing for everyone! The property was very clean and have everything that you needed. I had to contact the owner a few times to coordinate arrivals and he responded immediately. I would strongly recommend this house for anyone that wants a relaxing and fun vacation!"

"It is a quaint cottage very close to the town of Skaneateles which is beautiful. The owners of the cottage live right on the property as well and are so super nice! We really felt a part of their "family" but they weren't intrusive. Most of the conversations happened because they were out in their yard and I stopped to talk with them. They were very welcoming! A very short walk to their private "beach". It was very clean and very well maintained. The road coming into the cabin almost makes a very cool tunnel with the trees overhanding. and I experienced the most amazing site. when I was walking my puppy before bed I walked through the tunnel of trees and all in the trees flying around were fireflies it felt very magical! My only concern with posting this review is that more people will book this house and it will be harder for us to book! Should we make our way to Skaneateles again THIS is where we will stay!"
