traveler reviews for this skaneateles house rental


Review submitted: August 12, 2012   Date of arrival: August 5, 2012

If you're looking for a place to relax and enjoy, look no further! Sue and Chris' hospitality and beautiful home make it impossible to do anything but relax. We were also very fortunate to have a week of perfect weather; so each morning we were greeted by beautiful sunshine beaming into our windows. Couldn't resist getting up and out to enjoy the sunshine! Our week was filled with lounging on the crystal clear lake, paddle boating (thanks to Chris and Sue!), canoeing, and fishing off the dock (successfully we might add!). Nights were filled with bonfires and smores (and more fishing)! Great area for walks and biking - we wish we had brought our bikes ... House was stocked with needed supplies and very clean. We would definitely recommend The Blue House on Skaneateles Lake! Thanks again, for everything Chris and Sue!

Skaneateles in July

Review submitted: July 23, 2012   Date of arrival: July 15, 2012

The Blue House was perfect! The house was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The lake front was great to sun bathe in the early part of the day and for fires at night. The water in front of the house is crystal clear with no seaweed and it is between three and four feet deep. It was a great location for snorkeling, kayaking, boating, fish watching, and of course swimming. Sue and Chris,the landlords, live next door and were so friendly and helpful. It was a wonderful vacation on a beautiful lake!

Review submitted: August 16, 2011   Date of arrival: August 6, 2011

We rented this cottage for a week and had a great time. The cottage has everything you will need for the week and more! The manager is nearby and very responsive to your needs and requests. The cottage was spotless. The cottage is located on the west side of the lake. Nice quite location. I have recommended this property to my friends and would absolutely go back again.
