Skaneateles Lake

Skaneateles Lake is the only Finger Lake not connected to the Erie Canal System. The water quality is so pure it passes unfiltered into homes in Syracuse and other municipalities. You can drive around the entire lake in 60 minutes.

Dickens Christmas on Skaneateles Lake

Visit during Dickens Christmas and explore the town with jovial costumed “Christmas Carol” characters.

Stop and smell the lavender at Lockwood Lavender Farm

Eat at Doug’s Fish Fry, Skaneateles Bakery, the historic Sherwood Inn, Blue Water Grill or Rosalie’s Cucina. Really, Skaneateles seems to specialize in great food, you can’t go wrong!

Every lake has boat cruise, but a Mail Boat Cruise is a unique experience! Mail has been delivered by boat on Skaneateles Lake for 120 years, except during the two world wars. Many of the summer cottages are not accessible by road (sounds lovely!)
