Although we did not meet Robert, he was very responsive and helpful through email. The cottage's surroundings were stunning. It was nice to have so much private waterfront property. Unfortunately we did not plan the timing of our trip to take full advantage of the BBQ, dock, f…

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, view.....you name it and they have it. I think this was the most memorable vacation for my entire family…

Great space for a family or group to be together. We were there before the Summer season began and it was very quiet and cool. Remote location requires driving if you want restaurants and stores.

This was our second visit to Robert's house on Skaneateles Lake. We certainly hope it won't be our last. The house is beautiful, comfortable, and well-equipped; the lake is peaceful (the water is cold in June!); the garden is incredibly private. What a perfect spot.

Plenty of room, great location on lake for family. The view is great, lawn space is huge. We brought an inflatable kayak with us and enjoyed exploring the lake. All essential kitchenware is provided, which was nice. It'd be better if the air ducts were cleaned because when we vis…

Response from Robert:
The cell reception is spotty. Sometimes it works in the house, but I can almost always get through out on the dock. The problem is that the lake is in a deep valley and the tower is on top of the hill, so the signal passes over us. I will get this info into the listing ... small oversight on my part. As far as the art is concerned, in my opinion that is what it is supposed to do ... disturb, provoke and upset our usual perspectives on things ):.

Wonderful space and location. Tons of room with a great lakefront yard. Would absolutely recommend to anyone whether you're looking for a quiet family spot or a weekend with friends. The layout of the house made it very private and cozy.

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