I highly encourage you to stay at the Packwood House in Skaneateles! It is in the middle of town, very clean, great breakfast at the Sherwood Inn, and it has the world's best view! Skaneateles Lake is right across the street! And, go to the LakeHouse Pub!

My 3 sisters and I stayed here one night for a reunion during off-peak season. We rented a suite with king bed and sofa bed. The King bed was wonderful, but the sofa bed mattress could have been improved with additional padding or a mattress topper. The sofa itself seriously lacked good support even for sitting. There was plenty of... More

We have stayed at the Packwood several times over the past years. Although the room was clean it is in desperate need of updating. The complimentary coffee and baked goods were no longer available. Skaneatleles is a beautiful town an though this hotel is convenient not sure for the cost we would book here again

Stopped off here on a road trip across NY state. Lovely historic village, situated on a picturesque lake. Packwood House was very comfortable, huge room, and pretty good value. Our only criticism is that we didn't seem to have a wardrobe! Though as we were only stopping one night this wasn't too much of a problem.

This was our home base for a reunion with friends and we were extremely pleased. The hotel itself made you feel like you were in some cosmopolitan city, yet very safe and secure with private on site parking at o additional fee. Room was well appointed with excellent lighting and sufficient seating for 4 along with a microwave and a... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night traveling through NY. Skaneateles NY is a pretty little town right on the lake. The Packwood House is a sister property of the Sherwood Inn. If you can book in the Inn it is much nicer! The Packwood House is a 3 buildings down the street, very safe and clean. The breakfast... More

We enjoyed our stay here but it was quite pricey compared to other places we stayed at that were in more central Finger Lakes areas. The room was nice, we had a balcony which had a somewhat obstructed view. The complimentary breakfast was very nice - a good touch and way more than I expected in variety and excellence of... More

Just had 1 night here on a work trip, but it was very comfortable and modern. My room looked out across the road towards the lake and although I left the window open all night for some fresh air, I was not disturbed by too much noise. The room was large and clean with a wonderfully comfortable king bed. Some... More

My friend's wedding reception was at the Sherwood Inn, but my Dad always stays at the Packwood when he has bank meetings, so we stayed there. It was kind of a neat little place, where if you weren't looking for it - you'd never know it was there. It was incredibly safe (you had to use a key to get... More
