Welcome to Skaneateles, known as the "Eastern Gateway to the Finger Lakes". The historic Village of Skaneateles (settled in 1790's) is located on the north shore of Skaneateles Lake, one of the cleanest and most beautiful bodies of water in the world. A community of rare charms with lovely old homes, quaint shops and galleries, Skaneateles has been a vacation spot for the former First Family of the United States as well as many other families over the years.

Skaneateles is the perfect year round destination where you can enjoy everything from holiday celebrations, boat shows, or a leisurely autumn sail.

Skaneateles is also only a short drive from Syracuse, Rochester, and the Finger Lakes- all filled with unique attractions for you to enjoy.
