  • Perfect for our large family

    "This was the third year we've stayed here. Our family comes from Texas and California, and NYC, do the numerous beds are needed. The huge main room, with pool table is always a big hit. The whole house offers alternative places for entertainment when the weather it poor. We intend to return next year."

  • Wonderful Lake House!

    "What a wonderful house to Rent!! This was the first time that me and my family visited Skaneateles Lake and it exceeded all of our expectations. The lake is a gem to say the least, and the water is crystal clear and refreshing. The huge plus about this house is that it is situated directly on the lake with a large beautiful deck and very easy lake access. We enjoyed using the grill and dinning with views of the lake during sunset. Spending time boating in the house's very nice large canoe and single person kayak was very enjoyable. There is a swimming platform just off the house which was very pleasant to swim to and jump off of, and the house has lots of floats to use too. I'm a fisherman and was very successful fishing off the dock and from the canoe catching small mouth bass. We also rented a party boat at the Skaneateles Marina which was a very good deal and half price on Monday's or Tuesdays. It's a great way to see a lot of the lake and beautiful homes surrounding it. The house is very comfortable with a nice kitchen that had everything you need to cook with. The living room is large with a TV that has all the cable channels, but we rarely used it because the lake provided so much entertainment. The beds and bedrooms were very comfortable also. Then there is the town. Skaneateles is a treasure with many great restaurants to choose from and surrounding wineries to visit and do tastings at. Don't miss Anyela's Vineyard, that is just a few miles down the road from the house. We also took a day trip to Niagara Falls which was a little under 3 hours away and very doable from the house. It was incredible to see! If you want to experience a Fingerlake at it's best, Skaneateles Lake and this house is it! We had the best week ever!!"

  • Take a step back in time

    "Our family of 5 went to visit Skaneateles for one week. Our hosts were very friendly. Though their house is located 200 feet from the cottage, it was a very private visit. The steps to the dock were not a problem as other reviewers mentioned. We also rented a boat and had no problem using the mooring and taking the rowboat to the mooring so we wouldn't have to wade into the water. The 11 acres of woods were great for walks and we saw deer, an owl and turkeys during our stay. The children enjoyed the creek as well as the lake activities. We were allowed to use the kayaks and canoe as we wanted. The setting is preserved as it was probably in the 50's when the cottage was likely built. The cottage was clean with a kitchen that was remodeled and a nice small bathroom. The kitchen did not have a dishwasher but that was okay since we had paper plates and many hands to help with dishes. The rooms were nice, but my husband and I chose to stay in the room with two twin beds since a double bed is a little small for us. That worked fine for us since our daughter enjoyed the double bed! We will return if we have the time in our schedule. It was very quiet and we were able to sleep uninterrupted every night. We enjoyed a fire in the firepit and found that the owners supplied the wood and propane for the fire and grill. It was a really nice time and we hope to return next year."

  • Relaxing week away!

    "We had a fabulous week relaxing on this pristine lake! The house had every needed detail and felt like you were at the place you would have if you could! We enjoyed kayaking and reading by the lake, as well as the deck that overlooked the lake (we especially enjoyed the rocking chair out there!). The driveway is steep but was no problem for our experienced drivers! We loved feeling like we were away from it all, but being so close to Skaneateles to check out the restaurants, and stopping at the vineyard across the road that was recommended to us. We enjoyed the lake most, but came with family that spent time going through the many museums and hiking areas around there. We didn't realize what a beautiful part of the country that is!"
