The Sherwood Inn is situated in the heart of the historic village of Skaneateles, New York, which is known as the "Eastern Gateway to the Finger Lakes." The Inn is located on the north shore of Skaneateles Lake, one of the most beautiful and cleanest bodies of water in the world. Skaneateles is a community of rare charm with lovely old homes, quaint shops and galleries. The many dining establishments in the area have a reputation for superb quality and variety. Skaneateles has been a vacation spot for the former First Family of the United States as well as many other families for generations. Many return each year for vacations, local events, anniversaries and reunions at The Sherwood, their "home away from home."
There are many things to see and do in and around Skaneateles, including a scenic boat cruise around the lake, a chamber music concert hosted by the Skaneateles Festival or a visit to the historic Creamery building to view Skaneateles artifacts. Also, rent a boat to see the lake on your own, enjoy lakeside concerts in Shotwell Park just across from the Sherwood Inn and polo games on summer weekends. Experience the Fall Fest, Dickens' Christmas, WinterFest, hockey and skating at Allyn Arena, and downhill or cross country skiing at nearby trails during the Fall and Winter months. There is no shortage of activity for guests looking for adventure, and no better place to just sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery.
