  • Truly Magical - Skaneateles Haven on the Lake Has it All!

    "Magical is the best was to explain just how you feel the minute you walk into this property! That feeling of love and caring transcends to all and it is not long before you take that "yes, I made a good choice" sigh of relief! Visiting the area for a family wedding held at Baltimore Woods and local apple festival over the Columbus Day weekend, I had the difficult decision of picking out a facility that would serve all, young and old - those looking to be active and others wanting to simply relax. Both my immediate and extended family had a wonderful time thanks to all that was available within this property or just a short drive away. As more family and friends visited throughout our stay, we had plenty of room, meals were easily handled with the fully stocked kitchen, dishes, and appliances - there are platters, bowels and baskets for every conceivable dish, and seating for a large crowd both inside and out. The beds are very comfortable, linens fantastic, and the washer and dryer let us return home to simply unpack after catching the stunning fall foliage! Everything you could possible need is located within the cottage, boat house, or shed. This is a perfect place to pack a small bag, jump in the car and enjoy all that Skaneateles and its beautiful surrounding area has to offer. My entire family experienced a wonderful weekend, bonded, while also experiencing something new while together at such a lovely facility. Lou you are fantastic to work with - I thank you for such a wonderful weekend that allowed me to bring my family together, something this facility was made for and accomplished easily! My only negative would be that the additional bunk house is quite small and as it was cold and rainy when we arrived on Friday, we did not end up using this area. I feel it would be quite warm during the summer months if four people were to sleep there but if you only want a place to lay you head after an active day - it could work."

  • A lovely property with great facilities and space

    "We booked this for a vacation for our extended family, and were looking specifically for somewhere near a lake but not necessarily right on the water. it worked out brilliantly. Christine the owner was kind, helpful, polite and very responsive. We had eight adults, in four couples, and a baby with us and there was plenty of space and beds for everyone. The house officially takes 20+ people and it was very comfortable for 9, with two sitting rooms, a dining room, plenty of outdoor furniture, and four large double bedrooms, a smaller double, and a single. There was a cot for the baby, enormous amounts of bedding and towels available, and plenty of comfortable places to sit. The kitchen was very well stocked with pots, pans and knives, the oven was easy to use, and it was well-kept and clean. Because the house can be used for large groups, there were two fridge-freezers which was great as well as a barbecue on the patio. It was easy to cook for large groups in the spacious kitchen and there was a dishwasher, meaning that the cleaning up was pretty easy. As had a 14 month old child with us, we wanted to make sure he'd be safe outside and that we would all be able to enjoy the water. The garden is huge - a long rolling lawn with a basketball hoop, benches and firepit. There's a short walk through a neighboring garden to get to the private dock and that proved ideal. The house has a pair of canoes and paddles, which we took out on the lake several times. Owasco Lake itself has quite a stony shore, but it was still possible to swim off the dock provided you wore waterproof shoes (recommended!). There's a number of very good restaurants in Auburn - we particularly liked Moro's Table (fancy & French), Lasca's (family friendly, excellent Italian trattoria), and Green Shutters (diner-style restaurant with outdoor seating and lots of ice cream choices). The Long Point State Park near the picturesque town of Aurora on Cayuga Lake and the pretty town of Skaneateles both offered good days out. We would highly recommend this place for any family or large group looking for a comfortable, clean, pleasant place to stay in the Finger Lakes. It was lovely."

  • Great Cottage at the Lake

    "It was a great place to stay. My friends and I arrived for the weekend. The views are amazing. There are beautiful decks with amazing view of the lake and beautiful interior too. It maybe rustic looking, but the place was well maintained and not rustic in the least. It was very nicely done. The neighbors were very nice as well and location was good. I would go here again."

  • Another wonderful stay....

    "This was our fourth year at Taste of Serenity...and it didn't disappoint! Always clean and neat upon our arrival...like coming home! The hot summer days passed all too quickly as we enjoyed our two weeks on Seneca Lake. Kids and Grands visited and enjoyed all of the water crafts at different times. Visits to the nearby brewery and wineries some days, outlets on the one rainy day, or reading books in those Adirondack chair over looking the lake......we enjoyed every minute. See you next year Kathy and Mike!"
