I wanted to like this inn. The village of skaneateles is fabulous and we received a great rate on our stay for a Saturday in February. We stayed in the french country room, and the room was nice and comfortable. I'd recommend taking breakfast at the Sherwood, even in the dead of winter - it is a lovely setting. Here is the problem. We stayed during a snowy night. The village is plowed such that the snow from the whole village is pushed into an intersection right behind the inn. The plows with the scraping noises and "back-up" beeping, kept us up ALL night. The Sherwood (management for the Village Inn) should switch all guests with reservations at the Village Inn to rooms in the Sherwood or Packwood on snowy nights (if available) so as to provide a good night sleep. The alternative was just miserable.
