About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

Relaxing year-round home available for summer rentals, holidays, and possible other times throughout the year. Our home is situated 7 miles south of the village of Skaneateles on East Lake Rd. The 1.25 acre lot features lake views and beautiful birch trees. The back of the property adjoins Midlakes Golf Course (currently closed). A 3/4 mile stroll across the golf course and down a quiet road will take you to a community lake access. There are three bedrooms (three queen sized beds and one twin) and a convertible full-sized futon-sofa. The home has 2 and 1/2 bathrooms. The fully-equipped kitchen has been recently renovated and includes granite countertops. The back porch is our favorite room; the wall of windows allows for an unencumbered, relaxing view of the wooded yard. Spafford community Skaneateles Lake access is available via a 1 mile drive or 0.75 mile walk. Pets may be allowed if you can assure us that they won't do any damage. An additional security deposit may be required.

Very comfortable house with all the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

The house slept 5 comfortably and had everything we needed. We were in town for a family wedding and didn't have time to explore the property but it looked lovely.

Quiet relaxing atmosphere.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the Finger Lakes. Owners Bill and Megan were very accommodating in all of the important details. The home was spacious, clean, and well stocked. We felt welcomed and relaxed for our two week stay. Skaneateles is a beautiful little lake town. We would do this again. I think that is the ultimate thumbs up.
