My wife and I visited the Sherwood Inn on 8/23 to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary. Upon arrival the Inn was very busy as they were preparing for a wedding event. There were no parking spots for us so the front desk quickly walked out to the parking lot and reserved the first open spot for us. The front desk... More

The staff makes this grand old hotel shine. Everyone - EVERYone - we encountered was accomodating and professional. The hotel itself is quirky - there may not be a ninety degree angle in the entire building - and is everything an old lakeside hotel should be. The decor was in keeping with the age of the hotel, but not in... More

Elegantly poised at the top of lake, this classic Inn is a gem! Built in 1807, the wide pine boards and sloping floors attest to the years of service this Inn has given. It's worn well and appropriate updates make it even more comfortable today. If location is everything this place has it all. Steps from shops and restaurants, an... More

Beautiful hotel with character. We stayed in room 21, excellent view, faces the lake. It had a separate seating area as well. It can accommodate 2 adults and 2 children. The reception and wait staff were pleasant. We did eat dinner in the restaurant and that was very good. The continental breakfast was great, very fresh fruit and scones. Cereals... More

The initial impression is of venerable age, and old style comfort. Bendy floor beams, old paintings, creaky floors, wooden everything. Our reception was friendly and the waitresses very helpful and obliging. Breakfast although continental was good. We stayed 2 nights and had 3 rooms between us. The front rooms had wonderful views of the lake and were comfortable and certainly... More

My company hosted a Summer Party for all it's workers + their significant others. Our planned party got washed out by the torrential rain, and the Sherwood Inn graciously accomodated 60+ people for dinner at the last minute. The servers and hosts were all gracious and polite, and it was an overall great experience! The atmosphere was wonderful and the... More

Nine of us enjoyed a truly delightful dinner at a large round table on the enclosed porch of this really delightful inn/restaurant overlooking Skaneateles Lake, the eastern-most of New York's beautiful Finger Lakes. Service was quick, accurate and friendly, basically impeccable, the menu impressive, the food delicious and the company hugely enjoyable. We met at the Inn for drinks last... More

My husband and I made a last minute decision to visit Skaneateles and dropped in on the Sherwood Inn without a reservation. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The location in town is perfect. Rooms were what you would expect in an inn from the 1800's - nicely decorated, very clean but short on bathroom and closet space. Lighting... More

The Shiraz room in the Auburn House, now managed by the Sherwood Inn, did not meet our expectations. The room is on the 'ground' level of the 'back' building. When we arrived the de-humidifier was running full force and the room smelled musty. The TV was 1990's vintage.. REALLY???? No refrig, no microwave.. the flimsy fiberglass shower had a repair...

We stayed two nights at the Sherwood inn. The rooms are well decorated. They leave the doors open on the unoccupied rooms during the day and each room is unique. We had lunch and dinner here. The food is very good! The Maryland crab cake appetizer is wonderful!
