We stayed one night in the Lakeview room and we really loved our stay. Gale and Louise were so nice and helpful, they told us tons of information about the area and were extremely accommodating. When we went into our room, there was a rose laid on the bed for us, and sherry in the hall to taste. The breakfast...

Louise is also a great cook, Breakfast every morning was different from the last, and fantastic. The home is comfortable, and very clean. They keep a roaring fire going during your entire visit,...

This comfortably restored and furnished19th century farmhouse sits on a nicely landscaped, treed and grassy slope with a lovely view of the lake out over attractive waterfront homes lying across the road below it. The owners, Louise and Dale Zabel, were the kindest and most helpful of hosts and prepared fabulous breakfasts. We spent 4 nights in the Tree Top...

Dale and Louise have been in this business for 11 years and have mastered their craft. Both are very hospitable and gracious. The home is spotless and welcoming. Stayed in the Sunrise Room with the adjacent bathroom. Room was on the small side especially due to the sloping ceiling but most of our time while in the house was spent...

This is a very relaxing B&B...very homey. Dale and Louise are the sweetest. The common room is very comfortable, complete with a fireplace. We felt very at-home in the evening, playing games there. All three bedrooms are on the second floor...stairs very steep so this will be a draw back for anyone having trouble with stairs. We stayed in the...

We just needed a quick night away. Aunt Louise's was just that ! Relaxing, quiet, charming. Breakfast was truly amazing. We loved our tree tops room, enjoyed the bath, magazines, robes, and cream sherry. Attention to detail was much appreciated. An older home, made to feel very comfortable.

We stayed at Aunt Louise's B&B a couple of nights ago. We had never been to Skaneateles before or heard of it but apparently some very wealthy people have. It is a charming town with lots of stores, restaurants and activity. The town is directly on the lake and has been able to keep it's charm, so has "Aunt" Louise....

Hosts Dale and Louise Zabel are the consummate hosts. Upon arrival, they not only showed us around, but they also offered welcome drinks and made dinner reservations for us. Then, next morning, we were treated to a beautiful breakfast. The food was so good and the table so pretty that we wished for a longer stay. We were told that...

It was our first time in Skaneateles and at Aunt Louise's Lake House. Dale and Louise were wonderful hosts and breakfast was lovely. I especially loved the broiled grapefruit and Dale's famous juice, Skaneateles Sunrise (a mixture of orange juice and cranberry juice) perfectly layered together making it a great start to a wonderful day of shopping. Dale was kind...
