“Lovely Stay at Aunt Louise's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

My husband and I recent,y spent 3 nights at Aunt Louise's in the Treetop Room. Out friends stayed in the Lakeview Suite. Louise and Dale were such gracious and accommodating hosts and helped make our reunion with friends really terrific. The rooms were perfect and comfy and each breakfast was delicious. We had a few food restrictions and every one was met.

Room Tip: All 3 rooms are terrific. if you are very tall, Treetop has some low ceilings but my husband is 6...

This was a perfect house for a great getaway. House was beautiful and charming. The hosts, Dale and Louise made us feel welcome and catered to our every need. Had a roaring fire when the days were cold. Gave great advice on where to dine and what to do around the area. Would recommend this home to family and friends. The house and rooms were cozy and clean. The breakfasts were delicious.

This B&B was wonderful. It was in a very nice quiet setting on a hill overlooking the beautiful Skaneateles lake. The hosts were very charming and took great care of us! The room was very cozy and comfortable as well as clean. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious. The village was a short drive down the road with ample parking and plenty of shops to browse as well as great places to eat! We truly had a great time and hated to leave. Don;t worry Dale and Louise, we will be back and probably with a few friends. A plus rating in my book!

Room Tip: Quiet setting. two rooms have their own bath. Not sure about the 3rd. The suite has ample room wi...

The house is lovely as are the hosts, Louise and Dale. We could not have had a better time and will return as soon as possible. We had the front room at the top of stairs. It was cozy and very comfortable. Most importantly, the place was clean with all the amenities. The spacious bathroom has a clawfoot tub plus shower. The breakfast was gourmet quality which consisted of a choice of juices, eggs, bacon, fruit and delicious bread. The view of the lake is a plus, but the garden is the real pleasure. We hated to leave.

Room Tip: We would recommend the front room at the top of the stairs.

The B&B is in a wonderful area. The town of Skaneateles is just beautiful.The lake is crystal clear and unbelievably clean. We ate at the Sherwood Tavern and it was great. The home itself was just mediocre.We have stayed in many B&B's and this for us lacked
a homey feeling. There is no central air just a room unit which was very noisy. If you turn it off and open the windows the road noise was bothersome. If you have trouble going up a staircase this is not the home for you. You use a rope to help you get up the stairs and they are steep. Breakfast was quite nice. We were quoted one price on the phone, but upon checkout there had been a lack of communication between the owners and we paid more. My husband was put in a very uncomfortable situation so he did not press the issue. I would not recommend this B&B to couples who have not stayed at others to compare.

Beautiful house, gorgeous, lovingly-tended garden, delicious breakfast. Most of all, the host couple makes a great effort to acquaint guests with the area, providing maps, directions, and recommendations. Close to the attractive town of Skaneateles, with a view of the lake. Very relaxing.
