Skaneateles Condo Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 4 1/2 Bathrooms

This newly constructed building is one of the oldest, most historic building in all of Skaneateles. The former Skaneateles Village municipal building, now known as Knabb Hall, is one of the most unique and beautiful lakefront properties in all of Skaneateles. If you ever imagined vacationing on your own private lakefront oasis right in downtown Skaneateles, this property is the one for you!

This luxurious lakefront property is newly built and offers over 4000 square feet over three levels, four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, over 1000 square feet of deck space, an elevator, and most importantly, 25 feet of private lakefront in the heart of downtown Skaneateles. This property occupies the top three floors in one of the most historic buildings in all of Skaneateles. The second floor, which is considered the main level, has a large living room with fireplace, four seasons porch, and deck all with expansive lake views. There is a spacious chef's kitchen with granite counter tops, island with seating for four, six burner Wolf stove and other high end appliances. There is a formal dining room directly off of the kitchen with seating for up to 10-12 people. The elevator is accessible from the vestibule directly off of the main living room and there is also half bathroom directly across from the elevator.

The third floor has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The first guest bedroom has an en suite bathroom, queen bed, spacious deck and incredible views of the lake. The second guest bedroom has a queen bed and a second guest bathroom that is in the main hallway right outside the second bedroom. The third guest bedroom has a queen bed and double bed with en suite bathroom and has beautiful views of downtown Skaneateles. The elevator does go to the third floor and opens up into the gallery directly off of the lakeside bedroom suite. There is also a spacious deck with lake views accessible from the gallery.

The fourth floor master bedroom suite is absolutely amazing. There are the most unbelievable lake views with a private deck for relaxing. It has a beautifully appointed and spacious en suite master bathroom with large double vanity, tub and separate shower. On the lake level our guests will enjoy an expansive dock and mooring buoy to moor your boat. We are now taking reservations so please give us a call to book your vacation!

Based on the recent amendments to the village of Skaneateles zoning law, we can no longer rent this home for less than 30 consecutive days.

Luxuriously Appointed 4000sf Lakefront Penthouse - 30 Day Rentals Only
average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews

Very nice. We had a great month.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and well decorated. The kitchen was well supplied with dishes and cooking equipment. Lovely views of Skaneateles Lake. The on call maintenance man was very responsive when I called and either explained how to fix something or came himself when it was necessary. I would highly recommend this rental.

Amazing property and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this apartment as a surprise for my dad's birthday. What a great choice! The apartment is beautiful, spacious, and quiet. The location is perfect as well. It was really convenient being in the middle of the village because everything was within walking distance. I would definitely stay here again.

This place is absolutely amazing. It has everything you would ever want or need. The beds are comfortable and the view is breathtaking. The only tricky part is parking.

First class and exceptional!

  • 5 of 5

If you appreciate the finer things in life then this is the place to stay. Beautifully done, and well appointed, we enjoyed every moment of charming Skaneateles in no small part because of our lovely penthouse! The ONE AND ONLY VRBO rental (and there have been many), with a comfortable bed! Priceless! This is no ordinary rental so please make sure to treat as if it is your own home. The care and attention to detail is considered throughout. The view of the lake is incredible. We loved walking right out the front door to great local restaurants and shopping of all kinds. We were planning our return before we even left. Thank you Rick, Debbie, and Amy!

Awesome Penthouse!!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the penthouse and the loft to accommodate my family for my son's wedding that was held at Skaneateles Country Club. It was spacious, modern, clean and had every convenience (and then some)! I would consider renting from Rick and Debbie again. They were professional and accommodating!

The penthouse on Lake Skaneateles was fabulous! Spacious, beautifully furnished, conveniently located and comfortable for the whole family. ( kids parents and grandparents) Kitchen and dining was roomy enough for all of us. It was well stocked w dishes, pots/ pans , small appliances and tools. Bedrooms were comfy w nice bedding and pillows. Bathrooms clean and luxurious. Even the towels were plush! You can't beat the location of this home. The views from the decks are stunning.

Overall, a fantastic vacation at the BEST rental home EVER !

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. This condo is on 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 Fingerlakes wine trail. Anyela's is the first winery on Skaneateles Lake and it's only a short drive away!
