This lake is the cleanest lake I've ever been in. The water was a surprisingly comfortable 80 degrees. We rented a pontoon boat and tube from Skaneateles Marina on a Monday. Since were new boaters, it was good that the pontoon boat was easy to operate and the lake wasn't crowded. The scenery was beautiful as were all the lakeside homes.

Absolutely lovely Lakeside town. We enjoyed the nightly walks, and the parks a splendid for sitting and enjoying the lake breezes, but wished that the shops and eateries were open a little later. We were there Mon through Sun. and it appears that most places only open early in the day and some just later in the week.

Skaneateles Lake is a beautiful spot. It is the subject of many artists and photographers. Driving along the shores will bring you to many well kept homes, restaurants, and attractions.

My husband surprised me with this cruise, with 4 kids we never have quiet time. I had the prime rib, he had the chicken, by far the best dinner ever! Then the desserts came, we were stuffed beyond stuffed. To walk around the upper deck, and enjoy the scenery, was beautiful! The staff was very nice. Def getting my whole family this for x-mas gift, and making it a yearly anniversary tradition!

I have never seen a lake so clear, peaceful and inviting. Worth the the long drive from NYC for a quick weekend getaway with friends
