Why Richard Moscarito chose Skaneateles Lake

We absolutely love Skaneateles as well as the fingerlakes region. It offers a great diversity for the traveler to either stay busy by wine tasting, shopping and site seeing or you can just sit by the lake and read a book. There is truly something for everyone.

What makes this house unique

Skaneateles Lake is one of the cleanest, purest lakes in all of the world. This home offers over 100 feet of private Skaneateles lakefront and some of the most beautiful views on the lake. The home underwent a complete renovation in 2013. Every inch of this home is now brand new and newly furnished. It has been professionally designed in a comfortable, refined cottage style. It is just across the street from the famed Anyela's Winery and only five minutes from town. It is also just down the road from the Skaneateles Country Club.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wow - this house is amazing. We don't want to leave! Next time will be summer trip so we can enjoy the out doors. Even with the frozen lake - this house makes you feel so warm & cozy. The décor is amazing! If you are in the Albany area, we would love you to come decorate our place! Great atmosphere, great kitchen gadgets, décor, TV, bathrooms- outstanding job!!! We spent a VERY rainy weekend at the home in March. We did not mind being homebound for the weekend! The house was perfect for all of us for a girls weekend away. We loved the open space in the living room and kitchen for all of us to relax and talk together. We loved the game selection as well. Yatzee was a big hit! The bathrooms were beautiful too. We appreciated the heated floors. The location was perfect for a trip downtown for pizza at Garage Eatz and live music on Saturday night at Anyella's Winery. You won't be disappointed with this home to be rained in all week! Thank you for an unreal girls weekend!

Skaneateles Lake Luxury Rental

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful rental home for a large family. The home is as pictured, clean and very well appointed. We were only in town for a long weekend at a family wedding so did not use many of the amenities, however they are numerous. Skaneateles Lake is a beautiful pristine lake in the Finger Lakes region of NY State. There are fine restaurants nearby ( we chose The Sherwood Inn one night), boutique shopping as well as boat rides and apple orchards for the more adventurous, but sitting and looking at the lake from the yard is lovely as well. If you are planning a family vacation, wedding weekend like us or maybe a reunion with friends this house will fit the bill.

Be aware this is listed as a luxury rental. The home is in an associated neighborhood and does come with many covenants on its usage. Some are standard for a rental, but some we found a little excessive. Be sure you are willing to abide by them before you commit. No shoes in the house (hard wood floors) and restrictions on using the towels for make up removal ( perhaps some dark towels should be provided?) are two examples.

Wherever your travels take you, have a wonderful time.

Not a bad thing to say. The property is a jewel on Skaneateles lake. The accommodations, the decorative touches, and views of tha lake are breath taking. The owners couldn't be anymore pleasant to work with. Wave way was spotless upon our arrival. Best of all the location is outstanding, you're close to town, the winery, the Sunday afternoon Polo match and the marina. We felt fortunate to have such a great property being shared with us. Thanks again for helping us make memories that will last a lifetime!

A wonderful stay at Wave Way!! Stunning lake views!

  • 5 of 5

Every summer my family spends a few weeks on beautiful Skaneateles Lake. We come from all over the country to get together for fun times on the lake. We just love it here and everything this place has to offer. This was our first stay at the Wave Way house and it was just Wonderful! The house is stocked with everything you need, an amazing huge flat backyard for yard games and sitting around the fire pit with stunning views of the lake. We would highly recommend a week or two at this beautiful rental in an amazing location just 4 miles from the village center. We hope to come back!

A Perfect Stay!

The owners accomodated a last minute request and during the stay was concerned and ensured we had contact information without being intrusive. Our stay was relaxing and a much needed break. We are already planning our next visit!! Thank you!

The wonderful Finger Lakes region is second to none in offering vacationers a wide variety of activities. Skaneateles Lake is one of the cleanest lakes in the world. The home is located on a 1/2 acre of land and has over 100 feet of waterfront for swimming, fishing or just to sit and read a book. In a short 5 minute drive away you will have all the shopping and dining in beautiful downtown Skaneateles that you can handle. It's also only 11 miles away from the Merry-Go-Round Theater and Emerson Park in Auburn. There is also rich history in Auburn like the Harriet Tubman House and the Seward House. Let's not forget the Finger Lakes wine trail with over 180 wineries. Anyela's is the first winery on Skaneateles Lake and it's just across the street from this property!
