Quaint home close to the Skaneateles village

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay at this house in Skaneateles, and would highly recommend renting this property to anyone interested in visiting the Finger Lakes region. The house itself was charming and quaint, beautifully appointed and tastefully decorated--a jewel box just on the outskirts of the Village. The screened in porch off the kitchen was nice for both card and board games, a place to drink coffee in the morning or a beverage at night.

Lovely home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Three adults and one child had a wonderful week here. Great beds, plenty of space and room and very clean. We enjoyed walking into town everyday, swimming in the lake (open to public 11 am - 6:30 pm), going to the drive-in, and picking berries. Lots of restaurant options and the kitchen accommodated our cooking requirements nicely! We loved eating our meals on the screened-in porch. The perfect place for our relaxed conversations and mini-reunion.

Skaneateles is a lovely little town on a beautiful lake. With a car you can take lots of day trips to enjoy many sights of interest in the Finger Lakes. Thanks!

Wonderful house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Great house down the road from downtown Skaneateles. Easy walk -- about ten minutes -- to shops, ice cream, the pier, restaurants, cafes, etc. Our stay was wonderful and the house exceeded our expectations. Easily accommodated four adults for six days. Will definitely consider renting again upon return to the area.

Memorable week!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6, which includes 4 college-aged kids, thoroughly enjoyed this charming house. Stephanie has done a wonderful job providing nice bedding, comfortable mattresses, nicely equipped kitchen items, etc. Everything is very clean, neat and organized. One of our daughters is an art major and really took interest in the art and decor of the house. Very clean and fresh to walk into. We have family in the village and visit Skaneateles annually. Great location. Walked downtown daily, visited the wineries and went boating. Thank you Stephanie!

Convenient, spacious and well-appointed

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Skaneateles at this charming house. It is a short walk to the village and the lake and it's a house that is great for just relaxing. Four of us went to museums in Auburn, visited Seneca and Cayuga lakes as well as Skaneateles where we swam and took the excursion boat around the lake.

Wonderful time in Skaneateles

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful rehabed turn of the century home. We were impressed with all the space this home had to offer. It was a short walk to the lake and we did enjoy fishing off the public pier. One of our favorite stops was the bakery, we couldn't get enough of those Macaroons 😊

The people we met were cordial and pleasant. We will rent from this gracious owner again.

Owner's Response: Robert & Sara were the perfect guests and treated my home as if it was their own. Robert even fixed a broken hinge on my front door! I'd have them back anytime.
