Went with a large group and had a Chicken Francaise lunch....not as good as I would have hoped for. Seemed undercooked, covered in a lemony sauce which did little to enhance the overall presentation. Not sure if we were in the area again, I would stop here....IMHO.

The room is way over priced. Stayed 2 nights & never had our room cleaned. Ran out of toilet paper & had to hunt someone up for 1 roll? Looked forward to prime rib on Sunday's special and at 5:30 were told they were all out. We have stayed there in the past & it was real nice. This time... More

The Sherwood was not quite what I expected but we had a terrific visit. It is located in downtown Skeaneatles and not on the lake but in fact across the lake and on a crowded street with lots of noisy traffic. There is a swimming spot across the street from the hotel but in the four days we stayed at... More

This is a busy but homey place to stay. Every room is unique and comfortable. This is an old inn , but it is well maintained and very clean. Most rooms have a fireplace, some have a jacuzzi bath. Many of the rooms overlook the lake. Breakfast was included and had many selections to choose from. Breakfast was served on... More

Bed was comfortable, staff was great, excellent atmosphere and nice breakfast. For the price the room was tiny and not many amenities. I would stay here again due to everything else mentioned and the fact that it's right in the best strip in town and across the lake.

We spent three days/two nights and the Sherwood Inn was wonderful. An historic hotel that is impeccably maintained. Our room was very spacious, and we overlooked the lake. The staff would go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant and relaxing as possible. You simp,y cannot beat the location. We can't wait to come back!

What a pleasant surprise ! Two hours from Buffalo lies the historic Sherwood Inn directly across the road from sparkling clean Skaneateles Lake. The Sherwood Inn was built as a stagecoach stop in 1800. Each room is unique with charming decor. Ours had a Lake view. Two dining rooms serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Breakfast is free with room. You... More

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.

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
