Recent Skaneateles Lake reviews

  • Lake Side Gem!

    "We spent a week at this quiet, peaceful home on the south end of Skaneateles lake and found the accommodations and location to be nearly perfect. This home is the best stocked rental property we've ever stayed at - in addition to the basics, the very thoughtful owners went above and beyond to welcome us and ensure we had everything we needed (and more). The house is well appointed and very clean - although on the smaller size, there was plenty of room for our family of four. Each of the 3 bedrooms have beautiful lake views and the beds were SO comfortable! The kitchen/family room has a nice open plan and the GIGANTIC sectional couch is a great place to relax if the weather chases you inside. The outside deck and eating area is very expansive - with beautiful views, plenty of seating and a nearly new gas grill! The lake is a steep walk down, however the gradual walk-ways and stairs are manageable to do a few times each day. The boat house was fantastic - we kept drinks and lunch items in the refrigerator there for lakeside lunches and happy hour! The dock itself is a good size and the small beach provides an easy way for adults and kids alike to get in/out of the lake. It was nice to have the option of docking our boat or putting it on a mooring - we took advantage of both depending on the weather and lake conditions throughout the week. Thoughtful touches like board games, books, kayaks and the canoe & peddleboat kept us all occupied regardless of the weather! The location of the property makes getting supplies or going out to eat a little bit inconvenient - the closest restaurant (The Glen Haven) is very basic, but an easy place to grab a burger and a drink. Otherwise, plan on at least 15-20 minutes to get to the grocery store and 20-30 minutes to get to better restaurants. The beauty of the home is that you don't have to leave unless you want to! I would recommend this property to anyone without reservation!"

  • A perfect get away, special find, a diamond in the rough.

    "The rail car is more of a cottage than a rail car.Neat,clean and well maintained from the interior to the grounds and down to the dock. This is the perfect go to escape for couples, small families, and yes grand parents.The multi level deck provides a great outdoor dinner location. The flat lawn area with fire pit is perfect for the evening smores as well as any lawn games. Afternoons can be spent on the large dock below the rail car. A nice place to just read a book or watch the kids play, the dock provides the platform for all lake activities, can be located with ease from the water after a boat ride or paddle,good depth for a motorboat and swimming all while providing a perfect view of the surrounding hillsides. We rented the car for overflow and peaceful surroundings, the full compound for the family reunion was located a half mile away. The great grand parents stayed at the rail car site where the ground was level and lake access easy, it was perfect. A lot of times with rentals there are setbacks such as condition of the place, hard to contact owners,security, safety for younger or older etc. From first contact till we left there were never any concerns, worries or issues with the rail car and property. I was taken back by the cleaning fee at first but upon arrival we saw it was well worth it. No one wants to be concerned with safety , cleaning or contacts when renting a cottage , lake house or compound. The owners of the rail car have made sure that all you need to worry about is how to relax and enjoy your family or company the way you wish to. This is the way your getaway is sposed to be. Overall a special place that the owner and family have chosen to share, a place we will return to, a place to take a good memory from and a place to create new ones. If your get away includes family or privacy with no worries than this is where you want to be. Thanks , big up and much respect to Ian(and family) for providing such a cool hide out."

  • beautiful apartment on lovely location

    "We had a great week at the Carriage House. The apartment had everything you need: good heating, washer/dryer, dish washer, comfortable beds and a well equipped kitchen. For our kids it was wonderful to have an enormous garden in the back. The apartment is private, beautifully but not fussy in its decoration and the hosts are very friendly. Some good literature and games are available as well. We will definitely go back again when visiting our relatives in Skaneateles. Kyra & John, Amsterdam, The Netherlands"
