“Nice Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2011

Bear in mind that this is a review and is not written to be negative or postive at all, just the facts!

This was booked as a birthday gift for my wife and thus I had specific things that I had in mind. The first priority when selecting a B&B for this location (Skaneateles) was a claws foot bath tub. After going thru the various options I chose Lady of the Lake and booked the DeEtta room which had a claws foot tub, perfect. Upon arrival we were greeted by the most wonderful lady who was the caretaker. She had indicated that a long term boarder had rented the room and were were being "upgraded" to one of the other two rooms of our choice. The other rooms were very nice but lacked a claws foot tub....very disappointing! However we picked out the Stella and settled in.

When I booked I knew that this was right on the corner of State Routes 5&20 and West Lake Road right in the center of town. This was not a concern since it was a weekend, hence no major truck traffic/noise, and in January, thus no major tourist traffic. Unfortunately we had a snow storm that night and every piece of snow removal equipment on the eastern seaboard must have been out running between 3 - 5 AM that sleep was interrupted frequently, very noisy. I can not imagine what the street noise would be during the week or summer season.

Other than that the service and helpfulness of the care taker was exceptional! Breakfast was plenty and over the top! We were constantly offered drinks and snacks as well as very cheerful banter. Since we were the only ones there, the long term person was "home" for the weekend, I feel we got such personalized service that we felt part of a family!

It was a great one night stay and perhaps if it was for more than one night and no snow storm we would have not noticed how close we actually were to the main roads. All in all it was a great weekend get away and Happy Birthday! Thank you!

If all bed & breakast's were as good as Lady of the Lake, hotels would be out of business! Sandy and Barry were gracious hosts and our room (The Stella) was perfect.

We travelled around on this holiday, so stayed at a few places making it easy to compare. This accommodation is where we had the best French Toast - melt in the mouth, having been soaked in Grand Marnier. The B&B seems to be run single-handed by a very able hostess, who has thought of all the travellers' needs. A sit on the porch in the evening is lovely, with a complimentary drink. We had the room with the original bathroom fittings, which were very well maintained and added character. A very pleasant stay, just a few minutes' stroll to the shops and restaurants.

This B&B is a beautiful old victorian house with three rooms available. The whole house is full of beautiful antiques and beautifully decorated. Beds are comfortable and rooms all have wonderful little touches.
Breakfast was scrumptious!

Sandy, Barry and Chelsea (the dog) are personable and very helpful and friendly.

Absolutely charming, impeccably maintained lush inn run by an absolutely charming, attractive innkeeper. Fantastic location across the street from the lake & a park. It's basically right downtown so you can walk to everything and this is a walking town, filled with people strolling and dogs being walked. Which brings me to my next point. We brought our two dogs who were indulged as much as we people were. Contrary to another review I read, you'd never know dogs visited this elegant home nor that one resides there (the friendly, extremely well-behaved retired service dog, Chelsea). This was a most welcoming place to stay that my husband and I will surely return to.

We were in Skaneateles for a business/social meeting. I chose the Inn because of the location to our scheduled events. We were able to walk to town and to restaurants.
The rooms and home were charming all decorated in Victorian style.
Our hostess and Inn Keeper, Sandy was gracious and most helpful in her information. We also enjoyed her background information about the area.
We enjoyed our visit and would go back to this B&B again!

This was an excellent Victorian B & B by far! A very comfortable stay that included a lovely room-very clean and comfortable with charming antique furnishings. The wonderful breakfasts were outstanding and the hostess always friendly and accomodating! We felt right a home in this lovely place!
