This 8-person cottage in Skaneateles, NY, is a spacious, updated vacation rental with high ceilings, a panoramic view, as well as many desirable amenities. The property occupies a private double-lot, with a large, grassy lawn and lakefront water access on Skaneateles Lake. On the main floor, this two-story cabin offers a fully equipped kitchen, just renovated, with modern updated appliances and a separate, roomy dining area with a wood stove, overseeing a breathtaking lake view.
An open "great room" living area is bordered on the lake-facing side with windows that bate the space in natural light. There is comfortable lounge seating, a large, flat-screen TV and a simply charming environment for family or couple memory-making. Deck extending from the main level features a large grill, an oversized picnic table and plenty of seats for gatherings. This family vacation home offers three private bedrooms — two upstairs and the master on the main level — and two full baths. Guests also have access to first-floor laundry as an included amenity. Linens are provided at no extra charge.
Sleeping arrangements: One private master bedroom on the main floor is furnished with a queen-sized bed and there is a plush double-futon in the great room, while two additional bedrooms are on the upper level featuring one full-sized bedroom and two twin-sized beds in the other. Additionally, there is a brand new second floor full bathroom.
This three-bedroom lakeshore getaway’s real claim to fame is its ideal location — on the water, amid lovely trees and foliage, situated on a private double-lot. The home’s lush, sprawling, lawn stretches in all directions. Steps leading to the beach are wide for easy climbing, and number only about 15. Awaiting below are a private dock and boat launch, where guests can swim, fish, sunbathe or set out to explore the lake. The 16' aluminum boat is available as a free amenity and 2 kayaks are available for a modest additional weekly rental fee.
There is a good-sized boat house on the property, well-stocked with beach chairs and umbrella, a paddle board and a 16-foot row boat, all free for guests to use onsite. This cottage sits on a double lot, providing plenty of off-street parking space for boats, trailers or extra vehicles. The large grounds and beautiful view also provide a great opportunity for large get-togethers such as graduation parties, reunions, or weddings.
The cottage itself is located only five miles from the village of Skaneateles, where visitors will find a thriving local lakeside community with plenty of specialty shops, eateries and upscale restaurants, in an abundance of choices to meet all tastes and budgets. Skaneateles is a historical region with an plethora of preserved cultural treasures. Visitors can immerse themselves in turn-of-the-century architecture or pay a visit to a series of stops along the Underground Railroad. The Skaneateles Historic District is home to a working, old-fashioned American bakery and a repurposed creamery, now home to the Skaneateles Historical Society Museum, where guests can view recovered farming and manufacturing tools, works of art, and relics of transportation. Other notable attractions include miles of wineries throughout the Finger lakes region, historical farms, several preserved homes and New Hope Mills, all nestled in a scenic backdrop and connected by walking trails.
The lakeside cabin is also located a short distance from Anyela’s Vineyards, where tastings and tours are available, as well as scenic photography and wedding backdrops and on-site, partnered catering. With its easy access to the lake, owners of the three-bedroom lakeside cottage have begun offering convenient weekly kayak rentals for those who want to take full advantage of that beautiful private shoreline. If you have your own boat, the public launch is only about 1 mile before you reach the cabin, and you will find a dock and buoy when you arrive for days of convenient pleasure-boating. And of course, the entire region is traversed by some of the most beautiful hiking trails in the state.
