We stayed at the Sherwood Inn on a Thursday night and avoided the summer weekend craziness. Skaneateles is lovely on a beautiful day. Our room was on the second floor in the rear of the hotel. It had a sitting room in addition to a large bedroom and good-sized a to with a jacuzzi tub. The floors were uneven and creaked which added to the room's charm. The bed was comfortable but also squeaked and creaked whenever we moved. The television was so small I could hardly see it when lying on the bed. That definitely needs to be upgraded. The room came with breakfast and free wifi which delivered good service. Other than the view while sitting on the porch, the breakfast was nothing special. The inn is very old which adds to it's character but the stair railing was way too low for me and I am only 5'4" tall. Since the stairs are old and uneven, the railing may be necessary for most to hold onto, so be mindful of that if you have any issues with stairs. I travel often and have stayed in many, many hotels in pricier locations than Skaneateles, NY. So, $250 for this room seemed a bit high to me. Also, route 20 is very noisy so, if you aren't committed to having a lake view room, I'd opt for a room on the quieter back side if the inn.
