5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Christmas Dickens weekend couldn't couldn't any better than staying at a quaint B&B complete with antique furniture and a quiet setting. while not the most modern electronics, if you're going to a B&B to watch TV you are doing it wrong. the easy walk "downtown" meant park once and enjoy the sights. need to visit again in the summer.

We arrived early to the Arbor House Inn, our host Wayne met us out on the porch to greet us. Even though we were early we were allow to park our vehicle so we could walk to town and start our vacation. Wayne is a great host and the accommodations were excellent.

We REALLY enjoyed our weekend stay at the historic Arbor House B&B in Skaneateles, NY. Wayne, the innkeeper (and owner) could not have been more accommodating, and Susan keeps all of the rooms immaculate. both breakfasts were absolutely fantastic... how does he get the blueberry pancakes so fluffy? We were in town for a wedding, and were pleasantly surprised by the quaintness of the town and will be back (with a stay at the Arbor House) in the future. Maybe even for a Dickens Christmas weekend which sounds like it is quite something all over Skaneateles.

We had a wonderful stay in Bella Rosa for three nights. This accommodation was the size of a large one bedroom apartment with two doors to the deck and lots of windows. Our bedroom overlooked a large green space, a creek and several ducks. You could sit at a picnic table near the creek. The Arbor House is located within easy walking distance of shops and several restaurants. Wayne cooked a large, varied breakfast, made to order each morning. The kitchen in our unit was full-size and beautiful. We were able to walk to the grocery store and purchase central NY favorite foods, freeze them and take them home to Michigan. We had a lovely, long weekend visiting old friends. We definitely plan to return.

We spent 4 days in the Concord Suite. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. The location was walking distance to the main part of town. Wayne, Susan and Julia were very friendly and pleasant. They all made us feel very welcomed and it felt like we were staying in our own home. The breakfast in the morning was freshly cooked and delicious. The rates were very reasonable for the accomodations we were in. We would definately return, when needing a calm and serene location to spend some quiet and enjoyable time. Congratulation to Wayne and his team for making our stay unforgettable.

My girlfriend and I both needed a nice quiet romantic getaway and Arbor House Inn was the perfect choice. Our stay was in the Merlot Room and it was beautifully decorated, quiet and clean. The room had a fireplace and two person Whirlpool tub which added to the romance for us. The Inn is conveniently located to the main business area and walking to shops and restaurants is quite easy. Breakfast was well prepared each morning and the owner Wayne was very welcoming and available to assist with any need. We definitely would stay here again!

My husband surprised me with an overnight getaway for our 15th wedding anniversary, and he booked the Arbor House Inn. The owner, Wayne, could not have been nicer, and was extremely warm and welcoming. We stayed in the original old house, and enjoyed the beautiful kitchen and the spacious public areas. Our room (Glenora) was large and well-appointed with a view of Fennell Street. The ensuite bathroom was generously proportioned and included a two-person soaking tub with water jets - very romantic! The room has a gas stove which added to the romantic charm. The inn was full with guests visiting for a local wedding, but our room was quiet and cozy. We had brought a special bottle of wine with us, and Wayne had plenty of wine and champagne glasses to lend.

The breakfast was served from 8am - 10am, and Wayne prepared delicious French toast and sausages. The coffee was fresh, hot, and plentiful. All in all - a great romantic getaway!
