Cottage comfortably sleeps up to 9 people in two 1st floor bedrooms each with queen bed, and one large 2nd floor bedroom accessed via spiral staircase containing 5 twin beds (including one bunk-bed). Front covered patio deck includes gas grill. Kitchen fully furnished with frig/freezer/washer/dryer. Shower in bathroom. Cathedral ceiling in living room and large glass windows. Many hiking trails within walking/biking distance. Town of Skaneateles (with many fine restaurants and attractions, including ice skating/indoor pool, winery, golf course) is 20 minutes away by car and roughly 45 minutes away by boat (depending on motor or wind speed).
Love nature and pristine lakes; grew up on upstate NY
Owner/Manager Denise purchased this cottage in 2004
Fell in love with it - right on water but also endless hiking available, including to nearby Carpenter Falls.
You can feel tucked in and secluded but also enjoy the lake and nearby amenities.
We enjoyed our week at this cottage. It is surrounded by woods so that you can't see or here your neighbors. It is a short walk down to the waterfront, which is a large area and wide. The waterfront area has a nice fire pit and a dock to swim off of. There are two queen bedrooms downstairs and a loft that has 3 twins and a bunk bed such that in theory 5 people can stay up there. The only downside is one bathroom. It is priced fairly. The caretaker Kevin rents kayaks and delivers them right to the water. Note that there is cell service only for Verizon customers and not AT&T nor any other carrier. There is no WiFi. It is near the southern end of the western side of the lake, which is the least populated. You really have to drive 20 minutes to town to do anything except Anyela's Vineyard (which is great). The cottage is old but it works. It is very peaceful.
We had a great time at this camp on Lake Skaneateles. The camp itself is very basic, comfortable, private, and serene. Kitchen is well appointed for cooking. A lot of waterfront with a cabana and great dock for sunbathing and swimming. If you have trouble with steep stairs, just know that there's a long flight of steps down to the waterfront. Some vehicles can manage the dirt road that goes down to the waterfront, but it's a little tricky, and you'll need 4WD. Neighbors down the road have all had these camps in their families for generations, and were very friendly. Dogs were welcome, and neighbors dogs visited and played with our dog, which was great. You can walk up the driveway and take the dirt roads for miles without encountering traffic. Neighbors just to the north of the camp have a fairly over-the-top and ostentatious estate, which we thought was going to be a problem at first, but turned out to be only a minor annoyance (lots of machines running over there, but again, not enough to ruin your fun!) We recommend this rental, and we would rent this camp again -- we really enjoyed it!
Beautiful oasis in an Adirondack setting!! So much lake frontage land that was perfect from morning until night. 2 fire pits available which is perfect- I loved the one down by the lake it was so relaxing. So easy to have our boat right at the property as well. Can't wait to hopefully return soon. Thank you for a great stay :)
To start with - We had great time in the cabin. Cabin is right on the lake and it's perfect place for family or friends get togethers.
Owner(Denise) was very approachable with any kind of questions. They made sure we had all the necessary things like clean linens, kitchen ware, bathroom utilities etc.
Only minus was the single bathroom ..it wasn't quite comfortable for 9 people.
Wine tours, Lavender farm, Village of Skaneateles, Auburn (New Hope Mills outlet and other shopping)
