About Erin

We are so grateful for our wonderful, outstanding guests who we have had the privilege of sharing our homes with! THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts!!! Dave and Erin

Why Erin chose Skaneateles

The cottage truly is one of the best places on the lake! We are on the east side where the day is longer and the sunsets are extraordinary. The boathouse is one-of-a-kind with a deck OVER the water so you can really enjoy the lake. Take 10 steps down to the lake out the front door and you're at the water's edge. Enjoy cooking pancakes on the boathouse deck with the electric skillet with your morning coffee.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is on a paved, private lane so you can enjoy an early morning or late evening walk after a day on the water. Everything is convenient - from driving to the Village and parking to just being on the water.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Just what the doctor ordered. Relaxing, beautiful and fun. Great neighbors - what a wealth of info...would like to come back to this lake-so clean. Time to get back to reality."

Rustic, cozy cabin with beautiful lake views. I

The cottage was clean and well equipped. It was more than adequate for the two of us. A bonus is that we could bring along our dog.

Cozy cottage on a beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

First time staying at this cute and cozy cottage. We loved it!! The lake is literally 10 steps away and the deck over the boathouse is fantastic! We were able to bring our dog who loves learning to swim and we enjoyed taking the kayaks across the lake. It was a relaxing and wonderful week at Skaneateles Lake!! Thank you!

Tips for future guests:

There is no dishwasher-we wished we had brought paper plates, cups, utensils, etc

There are a lot of spiders

The temperature fluctuates greatly-we used the AC and the fireplace during the week we were there

Great place - Great people - Great time !!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Was not sure what to expect.... not into " ruffing it"...as my husband is... Erin reassured me I would be OK... It couldn't have been better. Clean ( real important to me).. Very well stocked - even down to the laundry detergent for the washing machine.. Everything I needed... The beautiful lake only a few steps away. Some of the most gorgeous sunsets ever. A truly incredible time.

Cozy cottage with Incredible Views

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I, both in dire need of a break, stayed in this sweet little house for a week in September. It was nicely equipped with all kitchen ware, a great set of Syracuse dishes (love that old restaurant-ware), a comfortable queen bed, beautiful dining table and chairs, and magnificent views. The over-water deck was absolutely wonderful with its picnic tables, glider (loved), and Adirondack chairs. The area was very quiet, and light pollution was so low that the stars were absoutely brilliant at night. Our only caveats were ineffective air conditioning (and we had several very hot days) and the fact that we had to clean the place ourselves prior to leaving. We're at an age where it would be nice not to have to! We met our hosts, Erin and David, and they were lovely people. We do recommend this property. We also enjoyed a cruise on the lake on the Judge Ben Wiles. We had an anniversary lunch while moving across the smooth-as-butter lake. Food on the boat is excellent! The village is enchanting with many unique shops as well.
