"We chose this cottage because it has so many great reviews, and after spending a restful week there, I can confirm that the reviews are accurate. The owners are next door down a small path and are extremely helpful and accommodating. We felt welcome from the moment we arrived. This clean, cozy, rustic little cottage has everything you need - sheets, towels, cookware, internet service (not that we used it), an outdoor grill, picnic table, beach chairs and local TV. I'd recommend this place to anyone who doesn't require a 5-star hotel. Barbara and Ken are 100%, 5-star owners, and we miss them already! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for allowing us to stay in your lovely cottage. Our dog Banjo misses you too!!!!"

"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!"

"The house is fun and very creative, comfortable beds and lots of outdoor seating. Very large dock perfect to start day with a cup of coffee watching the sun rise. Lake so clear you can see fish swimming, good for kayaking etc. we spent most of our time on the dock/deck as the weather was beautiful."

"What a wonderful house to Rent!! This was the first time that me and my family visited Skaneateles Lake and it exceeded all of our expectations. The lake is a gem to say the least, and the water is crystal clear and refreshing. The huge plus about this house is that it is situated directly on the lake with a large beautiful deck and very easy lake access. We enjoyed using the grill and dinning with views of the lake during sunset. Spending time boating in the house's very nice large canoe and single person kayak was very enjoyable. There is a swimming platform just off the house which was very pleasant to swim to and jump off of, and the house has lots of floats to use too. I'm a fisherman and was very successful fishing off the dock and from the canoe catching small mouth bass. We also rented a party boat at the Skaneateles Marina which was a very good deal and half price on Monday's or Tuesdays. It's a great way to see a lot of the lake and beautiful homes surrounding it. The house is very comfortable with a nice kitchen that had everything you need to cook with. The living room is large with a TV that has all the cable channels, but we rarely used it because the lake provided so much entertainment. The beds and bedrooms were very comfortable also. Then there is the town. Skaneateles is a treasure with many great restaurants to choose from and surrounding wineries to visit and do tastings at. Don't miss Anyela's Vineyard, that is just a few miles down the road from the house. We also took a day trip to Niagara Falls which was a little under 3 hours away and very doable from the house. It was incredible to see!
If you want to experience a Fingerlake at it's best, Skaneateles Lake and this house is it! We had the best week ever!!"
