My wife and I "discovered" Skaneateles when my daughter began college at Syracuse University 2 years ago. Always wanted to stay at the Sherwood - fully service hotel built in 1807. Each room is individually decorated and uniquely sized. We found it very clean with an attentive staff. Breakfast is free and the selection was very good. But you cannot beat the location - it's just wonderful to walk out the door and be able to cross the street and enjoy the lakeside park. The quaint town shops are also an easy walk. I like to swim and the town park allows swimming. Water temp is a bit cold but he lake water is clear 50 feet and is the unfiltered drinking water for Syracuse. Very upscale town. Loved the Sherwood. One negative mention - while you really need to check out the restaurant, my dinner was served cold. Wait staff was very friendly and made amends.
