About the area

Cushioned up to Skaneateles Lake, the cleanest of New York's Finger Lakes, this cottage offers water access and an incredible view of surrounding greenery or fall foliage. Known for its community of boaters, sailors and water sport enthusiasts, the lake is a nature-lover's playground. With just a 10-minute drive or boat ride into the town of Skaneateles, visitors can enjoy both family friendly and high-end dinning in addition to shopping at eclectic boutiques. In close proximity to numerous Finger Lakes wineries, adult enthusiasts can tour and taste some of the best wines this famous wine region has to offer. And if hiking is your passion, you are less than 20 minutes from over a dozen vista filled wildlife trails, only 45 min from some of the most popular trail heads to the eastern reaches of the acclaimed Finger Lakes Trail and less than 1 hr. from the many beautiful hiking gorges of the Ithaca NY area. We know there is something magical for everyone at Skaneateles Haven on the Lake . What's here for you? You'll just have to come and find out for yourself.

“Can We Come Back Here?”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2016

Can we come back here? That was the response from our six grandchildren as we prepared to leave after an absolutely wonderful week at this "Magical Haven on Skaneateles Lake." They were sad to be leaving. The house is conveniently located just a short distance (10 minutes) from the charming village of Skaneateles which can also be accessed by boat or canoe with public docks available right at the center of town. Then get ice cream, a refill from the bakery or a meal at several great diners. The camp was the love gift of a father and mother for their children. The parents along with the children built it for themselves and have enjoyed it for many years. Together the family cares for and maintains the place as a family treasure that they share for a few months each year. It is fully equipped with everything a family can possibly use from beds, to bed linens and blankets, to towels, to everything you need to prepare meals including two refrigerators. The grassy yard slopes into a sand and gravel beach. There the children can play for hours, launch one of the many water toys, use the canoe and kayaks or swim out to the huge trampoline where they can bounce, dive, play king of the hill or just sun themselves. When they really need a rest they can swim back to the dock and fish. All of the equipment is kept in a series of well-stocked storage sheds. The children thought the camp was magical. So did the parents and grandparents!

Owner's reply: Kids...Parents...Grandparents...wrapped in all the magic and fully entering the dream for the camp that our parents had is just plain awesome. Your words and how well cared for the camp looked after you left speaks to the fact you cared for it in the same way we do. Thank you and you and your family would be welcomed back anytime.

“Wonderful Stay”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2016

My friends and I stayed here the week of June 18th. Lou and family were here to greet us when we got here. They were extremely friendly and hospitable. We were made to feel comfortable immediately. They opened their property to us, basically offering all kinds of amenities for us to enjoy. This place is completely equipped. We wanted for nothing. Lou and family even left us with a beautiful welcoming bouquet of fresh cut flowers and a bottle of wine. No matter what your're doing in the area, this house is conveniently located and is on a very level lot. Lou and his family are great to work with. I "pestered" him with all kinds of questions before we arrived and he was quick to respond as well as very accommodating. I can't say enough good things about Haven on the Lake. It is truly that. We had a delightful time. I would highly recommend this stay!!

“Perfect Family vacation”

Reviewed 24 Sep 2015

This home and location was awesome for our family. We have 4 kids who love the water, and they could not get enough of the gorgeous lake and all the amenities (kayaks, rafts, etc) this home has. Highly recommend it.
