    The place is beautiful and it's like you walked into a small town of friendly people. The lake was very clear and looked very clean and people were walking down the pier and sitting around the park.
    Great place to visit

    A lovely walk through the woods, complete with the sight and sound of running water from the stream next to the trail. Not too long to walk, straight path, and easy to traverse. An easy walk for someone who wants to enjoy the beauty of nature.

    The farm is so beautiful and relaxing. Especially when the lavender is in bloom. Their products are extremely high quality and the couple that owns the farm are very friendly, very knowledgeable.

    The parking area is very small. Not well maintained and it can be slippery. We went after rain and the ground was wet. A but dangerous if you are not used to nature trails. Definitely not for families with younger kids. Great fall and it's well worth the visit.

    Great time at the distillery and brewery. Music was fun and the drinks from both places were fabulous. If you haven't been you need to go. The atmosphere is relaxing and with the weather getting nicer their outside is set up.

    I asked our group of 8 adults to give their thoughts so we could adequately review our wonderful September 28, 2021 Mid-Lakes Navigation cruise on Skaneateles Lake. Their comments were many and included – the cliff scenery along the lake was spectacular; I enjoyed listening to the history of the lake and town, particularly since Captain Ben grew up and lived his life on the lake and in the area; he had lots of fun personal anecdotes and stories to share; the algae bloom issue in the lake caused quite a good discussion since we had a retired farmer with us who made sure we all knew that chemicals leaching into the lake come from many different sources, not just farm runoff (take note Captain Ben!); the history of gravity-fed piping that supplies water to Syracuse was very informative; our two retired postal workers enjoyed the explanation and demonstration of how the mailboat delivers US mail on the lake during the summer months; Emily (our crew for the trip) was so personable and kept us “hydrated” during the cruise; and I can’t say enough good things about the wonderful office staff – Christine and Margaret – who helped set up the cruise for our group! Don’t miss this wonderful cruise on Skaneateles Lake through Mid-Lakes Navigation! Be sure to ask Captain Ben to point out where “Bare-Ass Beach” is, and share some of his personal stories connected to it . . . .
