“Fantastic Room, Good Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

We came across FLL at the end of a long day of driving. It looked inviting. What looks like a reception office is actually a room with a sign advising visitors to check in at the Mirbeau Inn & Spa, which is basically across the street. We called the Mirbeau, got a great walk-up rate for the night and picked up our room keys at the Mirbeau reception desk. The Mirbeau grounds and restaurant looked very inviting, and for an extra $15 we could have used the Inn's spa facilities. Our room at the FLL had a fireplace, two TVs, a sofabed, mini-fridge, plenty of closet space and décor that was warm and matched the log home theme of the property as a whole. It felt relaxing just to walk into the room. Everyone we dealt with at the Mirbeau, from check-in to check-out, was friendly and interested in helping us with directions and tips about local dining and attractions. It was a bit of serendipity that we found this place, and I can see why the other positive reviewers are so enthusiastic. I had a good breakfast at the diner counter at Cedar House Bowling Center and Lounge, across the street from FLL.

My husband and myself stayed here for a week. We had a room with out access to the outside patio. The room had the basic amenities but was a little clostrophobic. It was clean and well kept but the "closet" was small, being a small part of the TV's furniture. The bathroom was small and it was difficult to find a place to put our toiletries. The lighting was dim which made it difficult to put on make up. The shower would not accommodate a large person but was sufficient for us. The gas fire place was cozy and warmed the room nicely. The tissue is the bathroom was like sand paper but the towels were nice. The bed was very comfortable and the curtains did a good job blocking out light so we were able to sleep in for a change. The staff were wonderfull. Every one was proffesional as well as nice and accomodating. There are other rooms available that have a door to an out door patio which helps "open" up the room and let light in. The Great room which is like a large living room was nice. Good place to get your coffee or tea in the morning and visit with friends or family. Over all it was a very pleasant stay and I would return but get a room with the patio. The price is the best for this quaint little town.

Room Tip: Get a room with the outside patio. They have a suite but I dont know what it has.

Thank you very much for your review! We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Finger Lakes Lodging. Some of our rooms are a bit cozy for a week-long stay so when you return to visit, please inquire about our two suites. Both have larger bedrooms, baths, and living areas. This might accommodate you better. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you in Skaneateles again!

We've been going to Skaneateles for eight or nine years now, but this is the first time we stayed at Finger Lakes Lodging. For the past few years, we stayed at another local hotel, but with three kids, we really wanted a bigger room... and something closer to the Village. Finger Lakes Lodging definitely delivered. The room was HUGE -- with a six-person dining table, microwave, fridge, and an enormous bathroom complete with a clawfoot tub (which all three of my girls fit in). There was also a desk, rocking chairs, and a pullout couch. And the best part, was that we had a suite so we could put the kids in one room and close the door!! The Lodge is managed by Mirbeau so we figured it had to be nice, and we were right. The staff at Mirbeau was wonderful -- check in was easy, and the pack and play was in the room when we arrived.

Even better than the space was the decor in the room. We loved the Adirondack theme... everything was so well-done from the blanket on the bed to the cool branch chairs and chandelier. It was like how Great Wolf Lodge SHOULD have been decorated.

We also appreciated the proximity to restaurants -- Cedar Lanes Bowling and restaurant was across the street, Mirbeau was across the street, the gas station was across the street... definitely helpful when we didn't want to get the girls in the car.

We can't wait to return next year.

Room Tip: We loved the suite!!

We loved the place. Well-kept, beautiful furnishings, great location. Clean. Easy access and parking. About a 1/2-1 mile from town. Good price, also. What a wonderful find. We will stay here again.

Great location. Rooms are very rustic. Bed is extremely comfortable. Bathroom is poorly lit. No tissues in room or the usual amenities you would expect to find in lodging at this price range. Suspect that in winter the gas fireplace and Adirondacks decor might be more appealing. Staff at Mirbeau were lovely. Decent diner across the street as an alternative to breakfast at Mirbeau.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for room descriptions when making reservation.

Just back from a visit to Mirbeau Inn and Spa in Skaneateles, NY. Our girls' weekend was about as perfect as it gets. We planned a day package at the Spa, and found the cabins across the street from it to be fabulous! The rustic decor was tasteful, the amenities were all we needed, and the nearness to the Spa and the town was excellent! The beds were soooooo comfortable, the rooms extremely clean and although the cabins are near the road, it was completely quiet.
A great place to stay; your own little cabin in the woods, minus the woods!

This is the second year in a row we have stayed at the Finger Lakes Lodging during Thanksgiving weekend. We were not disappointed! We stayed in the Finger Lakes Suite for four nights. This suite is so big and so affordable! It has a large bedroom, a huge bathroom, a dining table for six, wet bar, refrigerator, and a nice livingroom space. Totally comfortable! We had to call to get the commode fixed and someone was there within 5 minutes. So customer service oriented and so friendly! The Cedar House diner across the street is very convenient for take out coffee and breakfast in the morning. I can't say enough great things about this place!
