The photo advertising this lodging is misleading. The depicted building suggested to us we were going to an inn. The Adirondack chairs implied there was a lake or other pleasant view ahead.
Not so. If the photo were expanded to the right, you'd see a long single-story motel gussied up with rustic touches. If expanded below, you'd see that the chairs face onto Route 20 a few feet away. The building is not large and contains the small number of suites. Unless you specify that's where you want to be -- and are willing to pay a premium -- you'll wind up in a motel room.
Skaneateles is a pricey town. While our room at Finger Lakes Lodging cost less than rooms elsewhere it was nonetheless -- with a wedding discount -- between $190 and $200 including taxes and not including breakfast. Our room was small, just large enough for a king-size bed, chifforobe, desk and rocking chair.
On the plus side, as a place to sleep for one night the room served us very well. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The place was clean and close to the center of an interesting downtown. A back door opened onto a deck (shared with other rooms). Despite proximity to the highway the room was quiet. The clerks at the Mirabeau desk were pleasant and helpful. Rather than pay $10 apiece at the Mirabeau we went across the street to the bakery at the back of Rosa's Cucina and had excellent coffee and pastries for about $7 total.
