Awesome lakefront getaway on Skaneateles Lake

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our weekend stay at this waterfront oasis on the quiet southwest side of the lake, an easy drive or boat ride from the charming town of Skaneateles. We sailed, paddle boarded, biked and swam in the lake and can't imagine a better location. The "cottage" was spacious, spotlessly clean and well equipped with a modern kitchen and flat screen TV. A perfect place for a family reunion or a quiet week of vacation . The owners are charming and very helpful in ensuring we had a wonderful stay.

Vacation Lake Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this beautiful location on Skaneateles Lake. The location was very private yet close enough to town. We found the house had enough room for all our travelers. The kitchen was well equipped and enjoyed cooking while watching the great scenery out the windows. The awesome deck on top of the boat house was a favorite hang out spot for us. We were lucky enough to enjoy the lake while it was rather refreshing it was very nice to be located directly on the lake to jump in whenever we wanted to do so. The home was comfortable and had two different family rooms if needed. The owners were great and communicated very well with us. They always answered emails and phone calls promptly. This was a bit of a family reunion for us so we enjoyed many parts of the village. The dinner cruise was great and glad we decided to give it a try. All the history behind the homes was a nice touch. We were very happy we decided to rent this cottage and recommend it! Thanks! Tina

Wow...Great Deck space!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home last summer 2009 with another family-4 adults and 4 children. Plenty of space for both families, great counter space & supplies in the kitchen, nice to have 2 seperate living areas (up & down) but the best was the boat house deck...great for relaxing while kids swam & fished. Spent every night at fire pit while kids fished by the well lite dock! Stairs were plentiful but well worth the trip to the boat house.

About Maureen and Brian Harkins

Brian fell in love with Skaneateles while a student at LeMoyne College in Syracuse, NY. He introduced his family to the area during a college reunion and we all agreed it was a wonderful place to relax and reconnect.

Maureen and Brian Harkins purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Maureen and Brian Harkins chose Moravia

We love the quiet of the southern end of the lake! if we see 10 boats pass by on a summer day that is a lot and the peacefulness of the area can not be beat. Watching the sun come up across the lake is always beautiful!

What makes this cottage unique

Being located off the Glen Haven Rd allows for long quiet walks or runs passing farms and horses and very few cars.
