My wife and I visited in May of 2013, and it was the perfect getaway. We stayed for three nights, and the hosts (Maura and Skip) were extremely accommodating. They provided great local tips, delicious breakfasts, and the fridge was always fully stocked with libations! As parents of a 2-year-old, this was our first real vacation by ourselves. As such, we wanted something that was close enough to our NJ home (it was 4-5 hours), but far enough to serve as an escape. We stayed in Room #2, which I would highly recommend. Its balcony/veranda overlooks Cayuga Lake, and my favorite moments at Silver Strand were spent drinking coffee/wine on the veranda at sunset. 2nd favorite was doing the same on their private (and huge!) dock. It's a great location, too...just a couple miles from a number of wineries, and right down the street from another. Silver Strand at Sheldrake comes highly recommended by us, and thank you Maura & Skip for a great experience!
