“Truly like staying a your dear Aunt's home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

Dale and Louise are wonderful hosts. You'll think--maybe they really are a distant aunt or uncle. They are energetic, cheerful, and accommodating in making sure your stay in the area is memorable. Their home is comfortable. Breakfast each of our two days was different and delicious both days. The waffles were fabulous, although my diabetic wife had to pass on them. The next day's coddled eggs were equally great. We stayed in the largest of the three rooms. The AC in our room is independently controlled in that room, so we had ability to set it just as we liked. I would suggest that they update the small CRT TV to a flat screen set since they have full cable service. But... you're not here to watch tv anyway. This is a great place to stay and we would certainly stay here again and recommend it to our friends.

My husband and I only stayed one night and mostly enjoyed the sweet welcome. Breakfast is truly the best we have had in a B&B. Louise and Dale are caring hosts, engaging in conversation and definitely willing to make our stay in the area enjoyable.

5 women traveling together! We have known each other for over 60 years and make quite the ruckus. Dale and Louise put up with our shenanigans. Such gracious and patient hosts! The rooms are delightful, the view is breathtaking, and the breakfast is sumptuous and delectable. Skaneateles is a gem in the Finger Lakes and Aunt Louise's is the perfect place to stay. I am recommending to everyone who plans to see area.

We could not have asked for a more perfect 4th of July weekend! Louise and Dale were wonderful hosts and their summer help, Ali, was very gracious. Their pride in both the B&B and the town of Skaneateles shines through! In addition to the B&B being charming and clean, the breakfasts were exceptional. So much thought has gone into making this such a special place - breakfast is served on fine china, there are fresh cut flowers in the guest rooms and while antiques abound, it remains comfy and cozy. The location was perfect - a few miles away from the center of town. Dale and Louise made great suggestions for dining, antiquing and sightseeing. In fact, we do not think we would have gotten dinner reservations at Rosalie's Cucina without Louise's help. As B&B aficionados, Aunt Louise's Lake House now ranks among our top favorites - we can't wait to go back!!!

Lovely home to visit! Louise and Dan were excellent hosts. Breakfast was gourmet! Beautiful antique decor, but bedrooms and bathrooms are new. Very clean. This couple takes pride in their home and are very welcoming

My husband and I stayed here with another couple for the weekend. Dale and Louse are gracious hosts. The attention to detail was amazing. The breakfasts were delicious, healthy and picture perfect. The rooms were quaint, cozy, clean and decorated in period pieces. The ability to sit back and relax is made easy by their wonderful and friendly hospitality. New and modern amenities do not abound but comfy and homey accommodations are at the top of the list at this B&B. We would highly recommend you stay here and you will sure to return. Extra KUDOS to Ali, the young lady that is there " helping hand"
