About Victoria Bratt

I grew up in the New York City area, enjoying all the cultural amenities the city had to offer. After vacationing in Skaneateles in my early 20's, my family moved to this enchanting lakeside community in 1986 and bought our village home in 1999. During my career, I've traveled all over the world yet have never found a place as beautiful as Skaneateles. Our village has so much to offer including it's pristine lake, world class music, summer theater, lakeside festivals, dining, shopping, a wineries, and so much more. We are making our village home newly available for leasing.

Victoria Bratt purchased this House in 1999

                                                            The house was in wonderful condition- Extremely clean and exactly as it is described. The walk into the village of Skaneateles was super easy, and one that we made at least once a day! We had 6 people in our group and the house fit everyone very comfortably. The wrap around porch was wonderful to relax on, and the backyard was beautiful. Two thumbs up!

                                                            Perfect home!

                                                            The house was just perfect for my son's family. They spent most of their time in the open kitchen/living room area while Mom prepared great meals in the well equipped kitchen. The location was wonderful: within walking distance of restaurants, shops and the lake. the big backyard was great for impromptu games and races. I would like to return next summer!

                                                            Wonderful home has it all!

                                                            My wife and I stayed at Tori's home with our two children. When Tori met us at the house she had all the lights on and cookies waiting for us. We felt like this was our home from the moment we walked in. The house has so much old charm but there are incredible renovations, too. There was plenty of room for the four of us to spread out and have our space. We walked to the village many times, since the house is located so close to it. Everything was very clean and tidy. Tori was so friendly and had thought of everything to make our stay a wonderful experience. We were so happy, we told Tori that we want to stay in her home the next time we go to Skaneateles. 😀

                                                            Great space, lovely hosts!

                                                            Along with five girlfriends, we stayed here for two nights in March and it was a fabulous experience! The house is a great space and Mary (who was taking Tori's place for the weekend while she was out of town) was exceptional. She was attentive, thoughtful, helpful, and fun! She was very accommodating to our needs and questions about the town. We definitely recommend this house and certainly hope to have another girls weekend here!

                                                            We rented this beautiful, lovely home for my sister's 70th surprise birthday celebration with friends and family. I cannot begin to express my gratitude to Tori (Victoria) for allowing us to have such a gathering in her warm and welcoming home. I felt like my best friend let me use her space for our most cherished family gathering. So naturally, we treated the space with the kindness and respect it deserves. The proportions of the house are cozy and comfortable and beautifully appointed. The house embraces you with a feeling of kindness and love. It is also incredibly conveniently located. We look forward to visiting again, as much for the home as for the wonderful landlady.
