If you want to get a real sense of the community in Skaneateles you have to catch dinner here. This is where the locals go to eat and socialize. Tons of history here and a great view of Main Street and looking south over the lake front. You can eat in the tavern side or on the more formal dining... More

our daughter's wedding reception in August 2014 was perfect at the Sherwood. Service, food, all the details were flawless. When we return they treat us like family. So we return often to live in the storybook village of Skaneateles and stay at the historic Sherwood inn don't forget to have dinner on the porch overlooking the lake. The picture below... More

Had a lovely lunch here. The tavern side was very noisy, so we went to the restaurant side which was much quieter. Tasty choices, nice view over the lake. Reasonable prices and above all, a great waitress. The gift shop was a real find too. We did not stay in the hotel.

The building has a nice feel large waiting area the bar is rather small with limited selection, the food is hit or miss not awful or great, been a few times the location and lack of options in the small town keeps me going back. bit over priced but had great view of the lake if seated on the bar...

If you are looking for a new Inn with Four Seasons luxury, this isn't your place. If you are looking for quaint, comfortable, romantic with great people and excellent service, this is your Inn. Our family stayed at the Sherwood during Syracuse University graduation weekend coinciding with Mother's Day as well. Hectic, busy and chaotic was our weekend but the... More

We just had another wonderful night at the Sherwood Inn. If you like to stay in Historic Inns this can't be beat! It anchors the perfectly clean lake and is in the center of town in the perfect place. The furnishings reflect its history. All beautify polished and perfectly clean. Easy to imagine the lifestyle of early travelers passing thru-or... More

The inn is situated in a perfect location and faces Skaneatles Lake. Upon entering the inn, we were greeted by staff who were extremely helpful and very friendly. Our room was located on the second floor and included a lovely extension with a picturesque view of the lake. The furnishings are antique and one is reminded of an era long... More

Staff is amazing here. They try very hard to accommodate your every need. My husband and I were even told if we were unhappy with our room we could look at other rooms that were available. But we were very happy with the recommendation. Dinner was delicious and our server was great! There were only one downfall. We were on... More

Their customer service was excellent. We booked a special room with a Jacuzzi tub and fireplace for our wedding night, but when we confirmed there had been a mistake and my husband booked our wedding night stay on the wrong date! When they found out the occasion they pulled some strings and managed to get us our room (even though... More

Stayed for three nights while traveling in the area for business. Wonderful location by the lake...great services. The rooms are very charming..tasteful decoration with fireplace and nice comfortable bed. It's definitely an older building so the floor made a bit of noises and sound proofing is not the best....but it is to be expected. Breakfast was included and there was... More
