... or at least the paved road, ended just past the bar. We were not willing to eat
dust for 30 miles to Butte. We drove past farmers bailing sweet smelling hay and through rocky canyons deep with the smell of Christmas trees. The Wal-mart in Butte provided us with bug spray and a few other camping supplies that we were out of or decided would be helpful with the next part of our trip. I ...
... explaining that in 1959 a 7.5 magnitude earthquake formed the lake and caused part of the mountain to collapse. It buried 28 people alive…and we parked on top of them last night. That would explain the campground named “Night of Terror Campground” we saw as we drove along the lake’s shoreline. I declined Buddy’s offer to stay there. Early this ...

Happy 4th of July! I would be remiss if I let you think that we have been without snafus on this trip. The toilet isn’t working because the water holding tank is cracked…brand new and never been used but cracked. Then, last night Buddy completely reworked all of the wiring for the inverter so we could have 110V for the appliances. Nope, he could ...

We boon docked last night at Super Wal-mart in Cody, Wyoming. Pulling out of the lot, we
took route 120 to route 296, which led us to Shoshone National Forest, Cooke City in Montana, and the Bear Tooth Highway. Bear Tooth Highway is one of the most famous scenic byways for bikers. So, it is a must for us. On the way we stopped at the Chief Joseph overlook that was populated by thick-furred ...
... see the massive rock jutting out of the Earth for miles
before we got to it. I climbed the steep trail to the base to take some pictures. The area is a beautiful mix of pines and gigantic weathered boulders covered in pale green lichen. People were climbing on the talus of boulders and I could see a lone climber who was a mere speck of red far up the column. We left this area and headed on to our ...

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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
