"MILLARD'S NOOK" - 1BR/1BA COZY HISTORIC HIDEAWAY NEAR FINGER LAKES

Skaneateles Lake, Skaneateles Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Upstate New York! Finger Lakes Region vacation apartment, pet-friendly rental A lovely drive in the country, along to the west side of Skaneateles Lake will lead you to the quaint hamlet of New Hope, New York.

Please note - rental prices vary by season and availability. Prices may be discounted for last minute reservations and low or mid season dates. Prices will be higher for holidays and special events. Please email manager for an accurate quote and instructions for online booking.

Known for its 180-year old water-powered mill, and wonderful pancake flour, this historic, mid-lake location is the home to a most unique vacation property. Atop a former well-loved, area antique shop is “Millard’s Nook,” a comfy one bedroom apartment. Named for Millard Fillmore, our 13th US President, who once attended and taught school in the original 1820’s farm house, the apartment was developed as part of an extensive renovation of the building in early 2000.

With all the amenities available for a most enjoyable stay, the apartment is comfortable, well-appointed, and appealing; AND it is right in the middle of everything the area has to offer. You could not find a better place to unwind and soak up the picturesque Finger Lakes region of Central New York State.

Enjoy nature's beauty bicycling or driving along miles of rolling rural roads, past farms & mature forests, and around gorges, streams, & waterfalls

You are also less than 2 miles from Skaneateles Lake, “the Jewel of the Finger Lakes Region,” known for its water’s pureness, clarity and beauty. Water sports abound and there is easy access to the lake from many public access locations in the area. In addition, you are only 12 miles from the charming Village of Skaneateles, at the top of the lake, with many unique shops, boutiques and world class restaurants.

Historic sightseeing and wineries are nearby, as well as sportsmen opportunities and entertainment venues too numerous to mention.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I stayed at Millard's Nook for our annual retreat. We selected this place because we wanted to visit Skaneateles during the Dickens Christmas Festival. Skaneateles is the perfect place to find unique "treasures" for family and friends.



Both of us loved the apartment. It was charming and had all the amenities of home including internet. We wanted a quiet place in the country and this was perfect. The views between the apartment and Skaneateles were stunning.



The unique decor added to the warmth of this apartment. It was a perfect place to relax and recharge as a couple.



We were also impressed that the parking area had been shoveled prior to our arrival and that salt had been put on the walkway and steps. The guest guide had detailed information for dining and shopping as well as instructions for equipment.



The off season price was very reasonable and we would definitely consider staying there again.

Reviewer Comments:
This is a comfy and clean home away from home. The decor is featured on Google's images of Skaneateles' historic buildings. Absolutely everything you might need is provided except briquettes for the bar-b. Rather than it being a detriment that it is 12 minutes from town, it is quiet and central to places worth visiting eg. Ithaca and its Falls and vineyards. Also enjoyed the town of Skaneateles. Be sure to visit the old mill across the street.

Reviewer Comments:
My husband and I had a family wedding to attend in Skaneateles.
We have been very happy with Airbnb and, once again, were not disappointed.
The apartment is located a lovely 15 minute drive from Skaneateles.
The apartment is cozy and quiet and just as depicted in the photos.
The kitchen is well equipped with a supply of coffees and teas.
There is also a nice selection of books, DVDs and CDs for that rainy day.
Our only negative comment is that the refrigerator is noisy.
This is a charming apartment and we would definitely stay here again when in the area.

Reviewer Comments:
Has a very nice stay in this rental. The apartment was beautifully decorated, and very cozy. The place was ideally located 11 miles from the town of skaneateles: close enough to enjoy everything the town has to offer, but far enough away to not have the negative impacts of traffic. Nice hiking paths nearby, less than 2 miles away, with a beautiful waterfall. However, the path is not maintained, so be prepared for muddy & steep conditions. Nice winery nearby as well.

Because we came with pets, the rental was absolutely perfect. It offered a large fenced yard in which the dogs ran & played.

The only negatives to the rental was a noisy refrigerator that seemed to run constantly & the high sulfur content in the water.

We would definitely stay again, and actually plan to do so in the Fall to take advantage of apple picking.

We rented the apartment for a week and attended our granddaughters graduation in Ithaca. The apartment was very accessible to Ithaca, Skaneateles and Syracuse. It was well furnished. We would stay again. .

Great experience, would stay there again.

  • 5 of 5
As the review title says, we would stay there again. My wife and I made a last minute decision to visit friends and family in the finger lakes region, and we found our stay at Millard's Nook made our vacation much more enjoyable over a hotel . It was very easy to book online and communicate with the proprietor about availability and rates. We stayed for five nights and the rate was reasonable and well worth it. By staying at the property we were able to cook all of our meals and save probably $40-$60 a day on eating out.

Pros:
-Easy to find, it is at the main intersection of New Hope and it was both easy for us and our friends who visited us at the property to find.
-Right off the street, since it is right on the road we didn't have to worry about shoveling a driveway or waiting for one to be shoveled out.
-Kitchen, there was a great assortment of coffee, tea, and cocoa (a Keurig machine), enough pots, pans, and other kitchen hardware to make a decent meal. As well as a simple pantry of salts, pepper, sugar, etc.
-Laundry, it was great having laundry because it meant we could bring less clothes and also wash our infant son's clothes.
-Television/Entertainment/Internet, we didn't watch much TV but there was a good channel selection, an assortment of DVDs, tons of books, and respectable internet speeds for the area
-It was nice having the gas fireplace, but it seemed like there wan't alot of yellow flames to it.

Cons:
- There isn't much of an entry way, and it can get crowded if you have three or four people coming in at once. During the winter when everybody is coming in with big jackets, hats, and needs to also take shoes off, it can be a small traffic jam. Also the rug coming in is flimsy and gets dirty pretty quickly. Would be nice to enclose the entry porch to make some sort of a mud-room.
- The refrigerator seemed to run an awful lot, probably because we didn't have fully stocked. We got used to it makes it a little loud in the kitchen.
- Phone reception, we are on AT&T and the phone reception was shotty, of course this is outside of the proprietor's control.

Bottom line, is we highly recommend staying at Millard's Nook. It allowed us to see family and friends without having to drive all over the region.
