Travel Blogs from Skaneateles
We decided to check out a diner for breakfast so we wanted to walk by it and see what time they would be open in the morning. Come to find out they are open 24/7. I happened to see an older gent with a dog and we started talking. I asked him where there was a good place to take a walk. Two hours later we are now back in the hotel.
This man's name was Harvey and his dog was Ace, a laba doodle, big brown dog. Harvey was ...

We have seen a lot of wild deer making the most of the greenery while we have travelled the interstate freeways here. They are a lot smaller than our red deer at home. Have also seen a few raccoons on the roadside, thought they would ...

Johnson's Campground in St. Mary would be home for the night. I cannot give them a good recommendation. The toilets were a long walk from our site, the 6-minute shower tokens did not last 6 minutes, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Skaneateles Suites
Booked and booked again!
My husband and I visited for a one night getaway and loved it .... so much ... that we booked another night before we left.
Clean rooms, quiet surroundings, loved all of the thoughtful amenities...we're really looking forward to our next visit!
A MUST DO PLACE
My wife and I recently had the chance to stay at the Skaneateles Suites, located minutes away from downtown Skaneateles NY. I don't know where to begin telling you about this wonderful establishment. From the time you arrive you will be treated like family by the owners and staff. They are not the type of people that get in your way or interfere with your stay but they are right there if you need anything. We booked the tree top suite and it was fantastic. it is a huge jacuzzi suite with a full kitchen and parlor, it has two tvs. and a large sitting area and a privet balcony just for your suite. I could go on and on but trying it out yourself will be the best way to see what i am talking about. the city of skaneateles is a quaint little city located on the eastern fingerlakes and there is a lot to do dinner cruises , shopping, fishing and lots of good place to dine. We are going back soon maybe just to spend a night or two for a romantic get away at the Skaneateles suites.
What a great place to stay in-between Auburn and Skaneatles
What a great place to stay in-between Auburn and Skaneateles. The amenities were first class and we were so happy (as was our poodle), to spend three nights at the end of June. Hoping to spend more time in the finger lakes in August and will definitely make Skaneateles Suites our first choice.
What a great find!
My husband and I were on our honeymoon and fell in love with the Skaneateles area. We wanted to stay there an extra day and did a search online for a suite-type hotel, just hoping to find somewhere to stay with some of the extras we both like. One of the first names to pop up was for Skaneateles Suites and were we glad it did! Although it was a few miles outside of the town, we felt the drive was worth it for the exceptional time we had there.
The rooms were beautiful, each in a separate bungalow style building, and the amenities were great - we had two CDs in the stereo and a great selection of snacks. We could have found all of this out by poking around, but we were actually given the privilege of a "grand tour" of the room by Curt. He even spent some time with us the next morning asking us how our online booking experience went and what suggestions we had to improve things at the Suites.
Overall, we found our stay to be just what we hoped and a little bit more. From the personal service to the quiet and spacious bungalow, the night we spent was just perfect. We definitely plan to stay there again when we come back through the area!
I booked my reservation on line and wasn't sure what to expect. When I arrived, it was different than any place I've stayed. So I still wasn't sure.
But when I stepped into my bungalow, I knew I would be happy. It was like an oversized master bedroom with a sofa and a little kitchen. As the evening wore on, I felt more and more satisfied. May extras, from a bathrobe to complimentary snacks and beverages (and comfortable pillows) make me feel like I was in my own home.
It was quiet and private. I just loved being able to open the sliding door and sit at a cute little table on a brick patio, drink coffee and eat a danish that was part of the complimentary snacks while I waited for my husband to get up.
The people who worked there were very friendly and helpful when I asked for something. It seemed like they actually liked their jobs and were happy to help me. Not snobby at all.
I will stay there again the next time I visit Skaneateles.
I have been to a few places for leisure stays, including out of the country at 5 star hotels. Our stay at the Skaneateles Suites was wonderful. Large rooms, very clean, and very comfortable beds, lots of extras. We even had a refridgerator and microwave in the mini-kitchen. (nice!) Robes, iron and ironing board,even a hair dryer. Cable tv,stereo. etc.etc. We didn't need anything more for our stay. And this place was super quiet. The owners are great people, along with all the people we met that work there. We even put some steaks on the grill (provided on site) under some beautifull apple trees just outside our sliding glass doors, can't do that everywhere you go. It shows that the owners put a lot of thought, time, and consideration into this property to make it an experiance notable for a return trip. WOW.
Total peace and quiet
The minute you walk in you can just feel the comfort of quiet. The outside world just disappears. Very spacious and clean. The owners are most accomodating. This IS the place to stay when you need to get away.
I highly recommend it to anyone coming to visit the Finger Lakes Region. Thank you.
Loved the Privacy!
Living in the beautiful Fingerlakes wine region means that we have a lot of out-of-town guests visiting us.
Our guests all love the Suites because of the privacy and location.
Depends what you're looking for
On the road and we would have rather it was still old motor court cabins instead of upgraded to spa territory. They were A#1 clean and fresh and nice but a little sterile. There was a whirlpool tub but it only fit one, and a terry bathrobe -- only one. So is it a loner getaway cabin? It was late so we got a great deal; otherwise we'd have had to pass it up because it's a bit pricey.
