We chose The Sherwood for our small (60 people) wedding ceremony and reception because we knew the food was wonderful and the setting beautiful. We were not disappointed!! Everyone and everything met our high standards. Meredith and Meghan, the events coordinators, were extremely helpful in the months prior to the date. They were always prompt in their replies to my...

This was our third stay at the Sherwood. Probably wont go back. Our room smelled, the electricity in the bathroom didn't work and when I turned on the Jacuzzi tub one of the jets shot out and hit my leg, Staff apologized but sometimes that doesn't help when you expect better accommodations for the price. As always though, the dining... More

We had a great 2-day after going to see our daughter at Syracuse. Only 30 minutes away by car. There were running a special and we got a fancy suite, plus a $50 a day dining credit for a great price. Our suite, Room 24, was actually two rooms, plus bath: a bedroom and separate lovely sunroom with great views... More

Recently we had the pleasure of luncheon dining at the Sherwood Inn with my wife's sister. When we first arrived we were seated at a table near the bar which we found was very loud with a group of friends whooping it up. We requested another location and were efficiently and speedily moved to a booth in another part of... More

It was our" 25th" anniversary and we chose the Finger Lakes area . We were recommended by a friend to visit Skaneateles because of the town. I looked up the hotels and chose the Sherwood Inn and decided to give it a try. We have stayed in many hotels, and I have to say it was probably one of the... More

We found the Sherwood Inn by accident two years ago during the holiday season and decided to make the two-hour trip back to Skaneateles again this year for the purpose of staying there again. My girlfriend loves the Christmas tree and the fireplace in the foyer (not to mention the gas fireplaces and hot tubs in every room). Many of... More

Two factors helped us choose this inn for a post Christmas - pre New Year's escape - reviews on Trip Advisor and because it is a Select Registry property. Our room (#31) was cozy with a gas fireplace and whirlpool tub. The room was located on the front of the building along the main street through the town. It was... More

Have stayed several times now here. Nice, friendly, beautifully situated at end of the Lake and within walking distance of center of village. Currier & Ives Main Street. However beware of rooms that look over the fan from kitchen. Rooms 18-25 and 40 sit next to or above. Fan drones on and on interrupting what might be a very peaceful... More

The reviews of the Sherwood Inn are consistently good, but when we looked closer at its website we kind of thought it might be a risky choice. But we liked the idea of being on the lake and also the fact that unlike its sister properties, everything we wanted was in the one place. Well after now having stayed there,... More

We truly enjoyed our stay. It was our 25th anniversary getaway and the room was fantastic! The restaurant was incredible as well. Considering another trip down next fall! The room was one of the nicest we have ever stayed in. Nice touch of a traditional inn without sacrificing modern conveniences. The staff was incredibly polite and very professional.
