You can fish right off the dock or from your boat. Many 2 to 3 pound Large mouth bass have been caught fishing right from the dock.
Fossils from the Devonian Era (250 million years ago) are embedded in the banks directly across the lake from the cottage. You can dig one out as a souvenier.

The U.S. Mailboat delivers the mail every day to the house next door, the mailboat has been doing this since the early 1800's. There are only 2 lakes in the United States left where the mail is delivered by boat and Skaneateles is one of them. You can send a letter that you write, out on the mailboat.
The Glen Haven Historical Society is housed in a 100 year old one room school house just a mile away. They have interesting programs all summer long, and a play ground and tours of the school all summer.
