We attended a wedding near Skaneateles and decided to stay at a B&B and finding Aunt Louise's was a real treat. Dale and Louise made us feel right at home the minute we arrived. The room was very comfortable and decorated inearly American style in keeping with the history of the house. Breakfast was wonderful. Louise takes great pride in... More

Louise and Dale are the most charming people. This was my first experience at a B&B and I could not have been more delighted. The décor is outstanding, our room "The Treetop" was gorgeous and our breakfasts! We had a couple in our group that had dietary restrictions and they could not have been more accommodating. Highly recommend a visit... More

Dale and Louise were very welcoming. From the time we arrived we felt at home. Beds are comfy, and the breakfast was delicious. I have to admit I was a little skeptical about the broiled grapefruit. But it was wonderful!! I can't wait to try to make it for myself at home. My only word of caution would be that... More

We spent a single night at this cozy Bed & Breakfast and were very pleased with our time there. Our hosts, Louise and Dale, were very welcoming and engaged in conversation enough to make us feel welcomed and at home, but not so much as to be intrusive. They enjoy hosting new guests and it clearly shows. The room was... More

Aunt Louise and Dale can't do enough to make your stay a pleasant one. Lovely home, impeccably clean, peaceful surroundings, and a view of the lake make this a relaxing place to stay. It is only a short drive to the charming town of Skaneateles, and a somewhat longer drive to the wineries. Wine glasses were provided in the evening... More

What a wonderful weekend we just had at Aunt Louise's Lake House. Dale and Louise were so warm and welcoming from the moment we arrived, making us feel right at home in their beautiful home. The rooms are spacious and extremely clean! Each morning, we woke to coffee brewing followed by breakfast at 9am, which were absolutely delicious and filling!... More

My wife and I spent 2 nights at Aunt Louise's Lake house and we couldn't have been happier. Aunt Louise and Dale were warm and friendly. They made us feel like we were staying with our favorite Aunt & Uncle and the room was just beautiful. Breakfast was the best we have ever had. The view of the lake was... More

We spent one night at aunt Louise. The BB is just on the lake Skanealetes of the finger lakes. Dale and Louise were very warm and welcoming. The house is beautiful. The rooms are very comfortable. The location excellent. The breakfast is superb. We really had a wonderful stay.

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Aunt Louise's, and felt both welcomed as family, but treated as honored guests, a tough combination to manage, but Louie and Dale did it masterfully. And the breakfast each morning was superb! We look forward to returning and highly recommend a stay at this wonderful B&B.

Thank you Louise and Dale for a lovely stay at your beautiful house. The surroundings were beautiful (thank you also for the tips you gave us as to what places we should visit). We'll definitely return to Aunt Louise's Lake House next time we visit the Finger Lakes region. We highly recommend it.
