I first stayed in the stunningly beautiful town of Skaneateles a little over two years ago (at the urging of my guy & partner in crime) when my daughter & I were on her college-visit-trip at Syracuse University. Ya know those feelings of "love-at-first-site" and "immediately feeling at home"??? Yep, felt them both. Fast forward a short 18 months and I was a mom with two kids in New York (one in NYC and one at Syracuse). No way was I going to live in California - an entire coast away. Coincidentally I was also looking for that next career. You can see where this is going... In January 2018 I purchased an 1835 home operating successfully as a bed & breakfast. The minute I walked in the door I could see the possibilities! With years of hotel background and even more of meeting & events management experience, this was a natural next chapter. After getting the keys in late April, we jumped into the huge task of renovating every inch of this historical home. The vision was to keep the charm and update the out-dated. We removed old carpet, finding original floors, scraped wallpaper and found amazing old beams.... Our guests will now have air conditioning and heat with their own controls, electrical has been replaced and each of our five bedrooms now have an ensuite bathrooms. Small details like reclaimed brick floors & shiplap in our breakfast room, all new tile in each bathroom, and a new pergola to lounge under outside will hopefully make your stay a little more beautiful. Next, we are dedicated to partnering with our Skaneateles community. We use local organic produce & dairy, breads from the best bakery in town, and decor from our favorite in-town shops. With all this said.... what are we really in this for? The guests - meeting all of you and offering a superior place to stay. If you have an requests, any little thing at all, please let us know. Nothing makes us happier than a happy guest.
