About Richard Moscarito

We reside in Chittenango, N.Y. and have a beautiful 9 year old son. We love to vacation as much as our schedules allow. We enjoy sitting by the lake and reading a good book, swimming, fishing and dining in all of the wonderful restaurants in Skaneateles and Auburn.

Richard Moscarito purchased this house in 2010

Why Richard Moscarito chose New York

My wife and I own several vacation homes in the area. This home is our favorite because it feels like we are in the absolute perfect location to enjoy everything the beautiful village of Skaneateles has to offer. We can walk everywhere and not have to worry at all about even getting in our car at all. The village has everything you need, fantastic shopping, dining and one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.

What makes this house unique

Having the village at our fingertips. We are able to walk everywhere and that's what we enjoy. We have lake views from our home and we can literally walk right out our door and be at the lake in two minutes! It's a perfect location!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful time here for our son's Syracuse University graduation. Even the weather was beautiful.

Our family, upon arrival remarked that they want to move into this beautiful, comfortable home.

Thanks for everything. We look forward to staying here again sometime in the future.

Grandma's 80th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

The house had plenty of space, more than enough amenities, and was in the perfect location to tour the town. The female members of my family thoroughly enjoyed our stay and my Grandma absolutely loved it (it was, after all, for her birthday). Was absolutely a perfect weekend.

Comfortable and Clean

  • 4 of 5

We had a group of 4 families, 2 families with small children and we all enjoyed the accommodations here. here was a bathroom for each family to use and a powder room. We also enjoyed using the fireplace as it was a bit cold during the evenings. The kitchen was well appointed and we could do a family style meal with the 13 people in our party one night! We thought parking would be an issue, but the owners had many parking options which we really appreciated. We would def stay again!

Skaneateles Downtown Home - 6 Fennel

  • 5 of 5

Do yourself a favor and rent a vacation home from Finger Lakes Luxury Rentals. Skaneateles is a quaint town with lots of shops and restaurants. The lake is pristine. Be sure to visit the Beak and Skiff Orchard and Anyela's Winery, both on this lake, as well as the Mirbeau Spa. The owner's, Ric and Amy, were very concerned for our comfort, and also provided discount coupons for spa services. We are a group of 7 girlfriends who have vacationed in the fall for 9 consecutive years. The decor and comfort of this home met up to our expectations and then some. There is plenty of room to either spread out or all come together. There are 2 full kitchens, open to living rooms with flat screen tv's, spacious closets, beautiful bathrooms and comfortable bedrooms. We spent time enjoying the front porch with a peak of the lake. The home was a perfect starting place for our day trips in the Finger Lakes region. But be sure to stay at home at least one day to enjoy all the village has to offer.

This house was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a house for 5 couples to spend a reunion weekend together and this was the ideal setting. The house far exceeded our expectations! The furnishings are comfortable and well maintained. The open concept allowed for good conversation while preparing meals. Bedrooms and bathrooms provided space and privacy. Location allowed us to walk everywhere in the village except to the winery! Outdoors we used both the front porch and back patio to sit and chat during happy hour!

Perfect House in the Village of Skaneateles!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter was married at the Mandana Barn in Skaneateles We rented this house the week before the wedding so we could be nearby for last minute preparations and to relax a little before the big day. There were 12 family members (4 different families) at the house, ranging in ages from 4-85. This house is great for every generation and perfect if you have multiple families. Each family could have their own space - For my sister's family, there was a nice 2-bedroom apartment on the basement level with multiple windows so the light shines in. The first floor master suite was for my elderly mother who needed assistance. There was more than enough space in her room for people to come and go to help her. My other sister's family had 2 bedrooms and a bathroom to themselves. My daughter, the bride, and her sister took the second floor master suite and were just thrilled to have the large, beautiful space!

I want to make it clear to everyone that this house is huge! (Don't let the outside deceive you.) We also loved the amazing closets in every room, especially the walk-in closets in the master bedrooms. It's easy to be organized when you have all that space! The communal living space was never cluttered with everyone's things.

The furniture and decorating in each room was extremely tasteful! We loved the big open space on the first floor. The kitchen was a dream! It was equipped with anything we needed. It was also nice to have the outside spaces -the front porch, with lots of space to sit under the ceiling fan and the backyard with a large table and a gas grill on the patio.

All of the family loved the location of the house on Fennell St. It is a very short walk (just steps, really) to the unique shops, wonderful restaurants and, of course, beautiful Skaneateles Lake. It is only 7 miles from Auburn's historical sites.There are many Finger Lake wineries you can tour in the area. If you rent this house, make sure you take the boat tour around the lake - it's so relaxing and beautiful!

The owners of the house, Richard and Debbie, couldn't have been nicer.They were immediately available by phone for questions we had about the house. Thank you both for making your home available to us. It really contributed to my family's special week!

The wonderful finger lakes region is second to none in offering vacationers a wide variety of activities. Skaneateles Lake is one of the cleanest lakes in the world. The home is located just a 1/2 block away from the lake for swimming, fishing or just to sit and read a book. You can also literally just walk across the street for all the shopping and dining in Skaneateles that you can handle. It's also only 4 miles away from the Merry-Go-Round Theater and Emerson Park in Auburn. There is also rich history in Auburn like the Harriet Tubman House and the Seward House. Let's not forget the Finger Lakes wine trail. Anyela's is the first winery on Skaneateles Lake and it's only a short drive away.
