Known for its 180-year old water-powered mill, and wonderful pancake flour, this historic, mid-lake location is the home to a most unique vacation property. Atop a former well-loved, area antique shop is “Millard’s Nook,” a comfy one bedroom apartment. Named for Millard Fillmore, our 13th US President, who once attended and taught school in the original 1820’s farm house, the apartment was developed as part of an extensive renovation of the building in early 2000.

With all the amenities available for a most enjoyable stay, the apartment is comfortable, well-appointed, and appealing; AND it is right in the middle of everything the area has to offer. You could not find a better place to unwind and soak up the picturesque Finger Lakes region of Central New York State.

Enjoy nature's beauty bicycling or driving along miles of rolling rural roads, past farms & mature forests, and around gorges, streams, & waterfalls

You are also less than 2 miles from Skaneateles Lake, “the Jewel of the Finger Lakes Region,” known for its water’s pureness, clarity and beauty. Water sports abound and there is easy access to the lake from many public access locations in the area. In addition, you are only 12 miles from the charming Village of Skaneateles, at the top of the lake, with many unique shops, boutiques and world class restaurants.

Historic sightseeing and wineries are nearby, as well as sportsmen opportunities and entertainment venues too numerous to mention.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My husband and I stayed at Millard's Nook for our annual retreat. We selected this place because we wanted to visit Skaneateles during the Dickens Christmas Festival. Skaneateles is the perfect place to find unique "treasures" for family and friends.



Both of us loved the apartment. It was charming and had all the amenities of home including internet. We wanted a quiet place in the country and this was perfect. The views between the apartment and Skaneateles were stunning.



The unique decor added to the warmth of this apartment. It was a perfect place to relax and recharge as a couple.



We were also impressed that the parking area had been shoveled prior to our arrival and that salt had been put on the walkway and steps. The guest guide had detailed information for dining and shopping as well as instructions for equipment.



The off season price was very reasonable and we would definitely consider staying there again.

Reviewer Comments:

This was a great place to stay- easy to find, far enough out of the city that it felt like a real escape, but still a quick drive to many adorable Finger Lakes attractions- and the Carpenter Falls hike is almost right across the street. The home was clean, well equipped, and exactly as you would expect from the listing. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our weekend there and breakfast on the deck each morning.

Reviewer Comments:

The apartment was adorable, but not as clean as we would have expected. We stayed there a couple of years ago, had a wonderful time, and then booked it for 2 weeks this year. However, there were ants around the house and cobwebs behind some of the furniture. I don't think we'll be coming back.

The place is as described and excellent, we really enjoyed the location and stay. The icing on the cake is the owners, they were very accommodating when we had to add a guest to our group and they even mailed school papers that we forgot. Absolutely awesome!
