Located on the eastern shore of Skaneateles Lake, the “jewel of the Finger Lakes”, Pinewood, is the perfect getaway. Pinewood is a rustic 3 bedroom cottage, secluded in the woods, on the lake. You can enjoy sunny days on the dock and in the water. In the evening the sunsets are breathtaking from your porch, the firepit or the dock. You are just 8 miles by boat or car from the Village of Skaneateles where you can find restaurants, gift shops, and a grocery store.
From your front door it is just a few steps to the firepit. Chairs surround the firepit and we provide all the wood you need to enjoy your evenings around the fire. Just past the firepit are the stairs, (40 steps down) leading to the water and the private dock. There you find chairs for sitting and enjoying the lake.
