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

We have just returned from the Sherwood Inn! We were there making our upcoming wedding arrangements for our October celebration. Every time we stay there or have dinner it is a wonderful experience.

We stayed here to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. The room was immaculate with comfortable king bed, gas fireplace and tub with jets. The only thing was that I couldn't get the water very hot to take a relaxing bath in the evening nor in the morning. We had room 18. Dinner was excellent in the dining room and we... More

We visited this establishment during the town's Dickens Christmas weekend. To say that the inn was busy would be an understatement! The Sherwood Inn, along with the whole town, was fully decorated for the holiday season with many Dickens characters strolling the streets, singing in the lobby gathering area, and performing skits on the sidewalks. The entire inn is decorated... More

i was just in town for one night on business and found the Inn to be a very nice place to stay. The staff was very friendly and changed my room from the one I picked online because she thought I would enjoy it more and be more comfortable - no change in cost for the change in rooms. The... More
