Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

Lovely restful lake cottage, home for many sun-freckled summers to the woman who when a young girl inspired J.D. Salinger’s character, Esme. Every room with a view, and with 125 feet of swimming and boating same-level frontage, the views are spectacular. Gorgeous stone and wood throughout. High ceilings, lots of light. Large porch for lakeside dining and relaxing along private grassy beach. Sleeps nine blissful souls. So quiet and peaceful in here, this must be what paradise is like.

Great location to the water and private yard to the the water. The house was spacious and airy, plent of room for all of us. We had a great time.

This location is amazing! Quiet and peaceful for relaxing by the beautiful lake, but also not too secluded (a short drive to town for more activity). The house is cleverly designed so that you can see the lake from every room. The backyard is spacious, and having campfires lakesi…

Great space for a family or group to be together. We were there before the Summer season began and it was very quiet and cool. Remote location requires driving if you want restaurants and stores.

This was our second visit to Robert's house on Skaneateles Lake. We certainly hope it won't be our last. The house is beautiful, comfortable, and well-equipped; the lake is peaceful (the water is cold in June!); the garden is incredibly private. What a perfect spot.

Plenty of room, great location on lake for family. The view is great, lawn space is huge. We brought an inflatable kayak with us and enjoyed exploring the lake. All essential kitchenware is provided, which was nice. It'd be better if the air ducts were cleaned because when we vis…

Response from Robert:
The cell reception is spotty. Sometimes it works in the house, but I can almost always get through out on the dock. The problem is that the lake is in a deep valley and the tower is on top of the hill, so the signal passes over us. I will get this info into the listing ... small oversight on my part. As far as the art is concerned, in my opinion that is what it is supposed to do ... disturb, provoke and upset our usual perspectives on things ):.

Wonderful space and location. Tons of room with a great lakefront yard. Would absolutely recommend to anyone whether you're looking for a quiet family spot or a weekend with friends. The layout of the house made it very private and cozy.

I live in Ithaca, NY and spend the summers on Skaneateles Lake where I sail, windboard, hike, birdwatch and work on our cottages.
