Fall just as Nice as Summer!

  • 5 of 5

Despite the dreary forecast, we had a 2nd wonderful stay. The lake and trees were beautiful. The house just as clean and inviting as our summer 2015 stay. Thankfully we had nice weather Sat and Sun during the day so we could use the fire pit and sit outside. Highly recommend a stay at Sunset Willow, the house has good space inside and out, the kitchen has ample pots, pans, dishes etc. Both of our stays were enjoyable and would not hesitate to book again or give a favorable review.

If you're looking for a beautifully appointed lake house vacation, look no further! This home lacks for nothing. As soon as we walked in the door, we knew it was the right choice. Clean, new, gorgeously decorated on the inside with a picture perfect yard and phenomenal lake access. The lake was so fun to play in when you wanted sun, the porch offered many rockers to seek shade and underneath the willow tree, sitting on the bench is where you could find me at sunset, with a cool drink in my hand! We decided to rent a pontoon boat for an afternoon, which allowed us to take our kids and 81 year old mother for a little ride around the lake as well as some fun jumping into the water from the boat in the middle of the lake! A perfect week in a perfect lake home!

Thank you, Nancy and Bob!

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.
