  • great private spot

    "The house worked really well for our group. Our adult son slept in the lowest level - he thought it was cooler and there were two fans. The view of the water is great, and our guests who live in the area thought it was great and really loved the deck. The driveway down is a bit challenging - steep with two hairpin turns, but we are from the mountains of Colorado and could deal with it well. The kayaks, canoe, raft and chairs by the beach were a real plus. The town of Skaneateles is also a great plane to explore. Grandma, aged 79, found it somewhat hard to get down to the beach which is quite a ways down from the house. Having to bring towels was inconvenient for us traveling from Denver, and we did buy more toilet paper and bar soap for the shower. Overall, it was a great place."

  • Perfect location; excellent hosts!

    "At the risk of sounding too much like Goldilocks, this property is just right! It's not too rustic and not too modern, offering modern conveniences like a microwave and internet but with an old fashioned feel. It's not too far from town, but it's not too close either. It's nice to be away from hustle and bustle while still having grocery stores and restaurants close by. The hosts are friendly and helpful, but they also let guests enjoy their time without interruptions. Three generations of us stayed at this cottage and all of us enjoyed it! We walked up the lane to enjoy a spectacular view of the surrounding area, picked berries, relaxed on the front porch and marveled at the view, greeted the mail boat from the dock, played in the lake, and made fantastic memories. I really cannot say enough about what Pinewood Cottage offers families. Skaneateles Lake is a lovely destination, and there's no place we'd rather stay than Pinewood Cottage."

  • Perfect way to enjoy Skaneateles Lake!

    "Our family of seven stayed for a week and had a fabulous time! I grew up on the lake (west side) so I know how great it can be. Jan and John were gracious, friendly hosts who anticipated our every need and . The cabin is cozy and updated, making for a very comfortable stay. Extra seating outside at the picnic tables (wave to the Judge as it goes by every evening!), plus a fire pit which was a huge hit (s'mores!) as well as the hammock. The steps to the water/boats are not bad -our four year old had no trouble. This is no cliff like some other places on the lake!! We enjoyed the kayak, rowboat, canoe, and of course fishing and swimming in the beautiful, clear lake. For a break, check out the village for shopping, restaurants, ice cream, and Friday night band concerts. My husband loves to bring his bike -a great way to explore the whole Finger Lakes area. If you want to rent a boat, check out Skaneateles Marina on West Lake Rd. My favorite part about this cabin is being able to sit in the living room with the windows open and feel the beautiful breeze....it's good for the soul."

  • 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."
