Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sunset Willow on the beautiful Skaneateles Lake for a week in June. The house was very clean, well stocked and the owners are very easy to work with. The house is located just steps from the water, has a dock, raft, mooring ball and kayaks. The sunsets are beautiful, then enjoy a fire in the fire-pit as you hear the water lapping against the seawall. The house is lovely, with plenty of room. We would definitely stay there again. Five mile point is just that, five miles from the nice village of Skaneateles. Plenty of restaurants, shopping and beautiful scenery. If you have never visited the lake before, take a ride on The Judge dinner boat (pictured on the house cover pic). You get to see a lot of the lake and learn about its history. There is pizza closer than 5 miles, but the 5 miles to the village is very enjoyable and you won't mind at all! Also, be sure to visit Beak and Skiff Apple Orchard in Lafayette! Such a great place for wine tasting, light meals and if you are there in the fall - Beak and Skiff Apple Hill! Lots to do and enjoy in Skaneateles, Sunset Willow is THE place to stay while there! Loved it!

Perfect for our Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sunset Willow. Both the indoors and the outdoors were great. We all spent time in the canoe and kayaks on the beautiful lake. The indoors was gorgeous and spacious. This place is definitely one we would come back to again!

Very nice lake house

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable for the 8 of us. Well equipped kitchen. Love the gas "wood stove". Great views of the lake. Easy transaction. Short drive from the cute little town.

Better in Person!

  • 5 of 5

This house was magnificent! It really is much nicer in person than in the pictures (and the pictures look great!). There is definitely everything you could ever need in the kitchen. The views to the lake and the fire pit were both amazing - the sunsets were a cherry on top! I would defintiely come back and rent this place again. We were a group of 30s/40s- I got high props for my rental choice from all! There were 8 of us (a few had to drop out due to family emergencies) and there was definitely adequete room for us and would not be crowded with more (although with only 2 bathrooms, you may not be able to get anywhere in a hurry- if you need to leave for any reason!)

We rented this house to go to a football game at Syracuse (Geaux LSU!). After the game was over, instead of hanging in Syracuse, we all wanted to get back to the house to hang here. We all wished we had more time to spend there (and we could have swam/kayaked in the lake - it is clear as can be!).

The only negative is that you must provide a check vs using a credit card- clearly this isnt' a deal breaker. That being said, the deposit was mailed back promptly.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your lovely review. Were elated that you enjoyed your stay!! Please come again soon. Nancy and Bob P.S. I'm sorry about not taking credit cards. Our guests had fraud and identity theft issues and we decided to go back to the old fashioned way.

The Best!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home twice. The house is perfect. The lake is perfect. The village of Skaneateles is perfect. We would go there every year but the problem I have is that this place is so great that it's hard to get an open week during the summer. They book up more than a year in advance. For that reason I was thinking of writing a negative review so I could get a week next year! But I wouldn't do that to the wonderful owners. The lake is so great that I started to look there for a second home. The only thing that has stopped me is the five plus hour drive from where I live.

Owner's Response: Hi Ernie, Thanks so much for the awesome review!! Please book now for 2017 so you can get the week you'd like. Please know if anything opens up, you have the right of first refusal. Take care and talk soon, Nancy and Bob too

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The house was extremely comfortable for our family reunion. We all had plenty of room and never felt on top of each other. The fire pit was a nightly success. Beautiful sunsets, and just as nice in the Am's. The kitchen was well equipped for all our cooking needs. Everything in the house was immaculate. We enjoyed the kayaks immensely. We would recommend this home to anyone looking to rent on the lake...you are mere steps from the water. Nancy was easy to deal with and made sure our stay was a success.
