Anniversary celebration began on the enclosed sunporch, we stayed on the ground floor suite. The king sized bed and fireplace in the bedroom had its own porch, the sitting room opened into the house living room, and the bath was spacious with plenty of towels. Coffee was available first thing in the morning and the full breakfast at the Sherwood... More

Spent an overnighter at the Arbor House for our anniversary. The inn is connected with the Sherwood Inn; need I say more? The suite was lovely, fresh and stylish with a state of the art bathroom, great linens and high class toiletries. Our room had a lovely little balcony overlooking a pond with ducks. The staff was marvelous, desk clerks... More

This was our second stay at this location. Very clean. There are quite a few rooms at this location, but it feels like no one is there but you. You get keys, you come and go as you please. It is located off the main drag, but close enough to walk everywhere. Grocery store is across the street just in... More

I am at the Arbor house now for the second night having come here for a wedding. I found this place really lackluster and tired. I will say that the rooms are clean but that is about it. It might be called quaint although the rooms is pretty spartan with a basic bed and chest and a tv that looks... More

Was looking for a quiet cozy get away and didn't get it here. The rooms do not offer much privacy as we could hear every other couple in the house. The Niagara Room has a shared bath in the hallway. The couple who stayed in that room used the bath 4 times in the middle of the night which meant... More

My two stays at the Arbor House Inn were a great respite during a difficult family time. You can sink into the warmth of a jacuzzi, sit by a warm fire and nuzzle into a comfy bed. The breakfasts were generous and very tasty. I was so completely at home, if my home looked as good as this! There are... More

What an amazing experience! We stayed in the carriage house of the Arbor House Inn and were blown away by the cozy fireplace, jacuzzi tub and wonderful ambiance of the Victorian style room. The continental breakfast at the nearby Sherwood Inn was superb and we also thoroughly enjoyed the complimentary access to the classes at the Skaeneateles YMCA. Not to... More

My husband and I stayed one night in the Glenora Room in the main house and it was great! Our room was quiet and once the gas fireplace got going it was cozy too. The big jacuzzi tub was a definite plus. The tv could of been a bit more up to date and the pillows could of been nicer.... More

We stayed in the Concord Master suite on the ground floor of the main house, and found it to be a comfortable 4 day stay as we explored the finger lakes region! Wayne and Susan were very friendly and accommodating during our stay. Although we were unable to check in when we arrived because our reservation was not properly recorded,... More
