We had a wonderful weekend away, and the Sherwood Inn made it most special. The true ambiance of an older Inn with squeaky floors and uneven hallways did nothing but add warmth and serenity to our stay. While the Inn was bustling with activity during our stay, the staff was attentive and welcoming. Our room was clean and spacious. Everything... More

Had Room 23 (every room has its own unique charm; only one left for desired date). Checked in with no problems; can't beat the location. Breakfast included; solid buffet style. Staff very friendly; extremely busy spot; if looking for a serene, quiet stay; there may be better options. This place is lively and full of charm. Would stay again.

Use to amenities for cost of room. No in room safe, bar, or privacy latch for door, lot of steps and no elevator. Spent two nights. Small room for furnishings. Bureau use blocked by chairs. Large modern bathroom, but had problem when taking shower. Drain could not handle water flow and would fill up tub and when valve set on... More

I don't enjoy writing reviews that aren't positive, but we need to help each other choose where to spend our vacation days in places we'll enjoy. I'll summarize and then expand. Not enough parking at dinner time. No elevator. Air Conditioning didn't work and other guest complained his didn't either and it was quite hot. Loud street noise. Bathroom really... More

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
