“As good as it gets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2011

We have stayed at the Arbor House in Skaneateles several times now and even though we probably should give the other B&Bs and hotels in Skaneateles a shot, it's not likely we will. Arbor House is as quaint and friendly and affordable and convenient as they come. Always clean and breakfast is ALWAYS delish! HIGHLY recommend this gem of a place. And what's not love about SKANEATELES. I'm pretty sure that's the Indian word for "God's Country"! Perfect in every way.

Stayed there with Boyfriend for a romantic night away, after a very busy/stressful reunion, and it was exactly what we were looking for! I was currently working at another finger lakes hotel as a front desk agent, so my standards/expectations were high! We were allowed to check in early, and I was very impressed with the room, the Concord Master suite. The Suite was beautiful, the bathroom was to DIE for, the jacuzzi was Huge and better quality then the ones in the hotel in which i worked. The suite also had a really cute private porch, and a super comfortable king bed! We really liked that the staff didn't live in the Inn, my boyfriend was hesitant about staying at a B&B, because he feels like he is staying in someone strangers house. The room and inn were very clean, and nicely decorated too. The breakfast in the morning was awesome, made to order! The off season rate we got on the suite was very good too. Overall we had a wonderful stay and would stay at the arbor house inn again in a heart beat!

Dear Friends,
The Arbor House was an elegant, relaxing place to have a mini-reunion and some much-needed down time with my sister & friend from Michigan. We loved the delicious breakfasts & especially warmed to the host family who kept us comfortable, well-fed & entertained for our 4-day visit.
I can highly recommend both the accommodations and make-yourselves-right-at-home humor. LOVED our first but not last visit to the Arbor House.

My sister, best friend and I stayed for the first time at Arbor House and I can't tell you how wonderful & clean our room was; the breakfast was wonderful and our hosts treated us just like family. We can't wait to come back again & again. Mary Isaacs

I stayed at the Arbor House Inn this weekend with my boyfriend (we were in town for a wedding).

From start to finish, our experience here was amazing. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful and our room was romantic and secluded. The whole feel is charming and the surroundings offer the best of Skaneateles, from the view to the location.

I would recommend this hotel to anybody visiting the area. (Plus: free delicious coffee and snacks in the morning. Double plus: fireplace and jacuzzi in the room!)

This is the second time we've stayed at the Arbor House Inn. We had a great experience last time but due to work constraints we didn't have a lot of time to spend there. This time we were able to stay longer and enjoy the Inn more. The owner, Wayne, and his niece who helps run the place were very friendly and the breakfast they served was awesome.

The room we chose was the Bella Rose, which has its own patio, kitchen, fireplace, and jacuzzi tub. It's an awesome room for us and we wish we could have stayed more than 1 night. If we were ever traveling with family we would choose this B&B and this room again as there is room to sleep in the living room as well as the bedroom.
