It was very pretty there and I went on a beautiful day with a friend. We had our lunch and relaxed. This lake is a nice short trip from Syracuse.

I have been to Skaneateles many times. Family have lived there for years. I love the lake, the shops, The Sherwood Inn is great for dinner, the town comes alive in winter for the Charles Dickens weekends, it's just good clean fun. There are bakeries that will make you want more. Great deals at the liquor store, bed and breakfasts galore. Summer time the town swells and town can get a bit crowded. Try the winter experience, I think you will like it.

Skaneateles is a beautiful little village, with alot of history. The lake is the clearest I have ever seen and it is worth a visit if you are traveling through the Syracuse area.

Skaneateles Lake is crystal clear and beautiful. I've only been in the town during the late fall/very early spring times so have not been swimming or paddleboarding but plan that for one of my next trips. Kayaking is a nice way to tour the coast when the water is still too chilly.
Beautiful lake!

Quiet, quaint village, wonderful restaurants nearby. We loved reading about the history of the Finger Lake Region. The people were so friendly & welcoming.
