Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

Lovely restful lake cottage, home for many sun-freckled summers to the woman who when a young girl inspired J.D. Salinger’s character, Esme. Every room with a view, and with 125 feet of swimming and boating same-level frontage, the views are spectacular. Gorgeous stone and wood throughout. High ceilings, lots of light. Large porch for lakeside dining and relaxing along private grassy beach. Sleeps nine blissful souls. So quiet and peaceful in here, this must be what paradise is like.

Response from Robert:
Thanks, Mona. Since much of the living room upholstery is white it shows every little spot (my mother had a thing for Florida-style decorating). We are planning on getting new slipcovers, but in the meantime I will be moving out the two white chairs by the TV and bringing in a second couch. The new couch folds out to a double bed, so that will provide beds for 9. We are also going to get a temporary cover for the main couch until we have a new slip cover.

FIVE STARS ALL THE WAY!!!!! Robert was very accommodating. The cottage is beautiful. It overlooks the lake and you can't ask for anything more. Sunset, fireplace, BBQ grill, name it and they have it. I think this was the most memorable vacation for my entire family…

This is a relaxed place for people who want to enjoy the area, being on the water, and each other's company. It's probably at it's best in the summer when you can open every window and view the lake from anywhere in the house. It is right at the water's edge and perfect for swi…

I live in Ithaca, NY and spend the summers on Skaneateles Lake where I sail, windboard, hike, birdwatch and work on our cottages.
