There is no shortage of beautiful places to stay in the Finger Lakes. One place you should definitely put on your must see list is the Village of Skaneateles, a picturesque town that sits next to shimmering Skaneateles Lake, one of the notable lakes that is still used for drinking water by many nearby residents.
During the summer there are few better places to spend time than in a charming small town surrounded by a bounty of lush greenery, and just beyond the land there is a beautiful lake to gaze at day and night. For local residents of Skaneateles this gorgeous view is one they’ve loved for many years. However, most people are unable to live in such an idyllic place due to life commitments and obligations.
Fortunately, Skaneateles has a long tradition of being a vacation destination, and locals are very welcoming to out of town visitors. That’s a big reason why you’ll be able to find outstanding living accommodations that let you experience the village and lake just as if you lived here year-round. All you have to do is browse through current listings for Skaneateles luxury rentals and find a home that best suits your needs and desires.
Unlike hotel rooms, renting a luxury vacation home in Skaneateles means that you and your traveling companions have a real home to stay in that has plenty of room for you to kick back and relax. These homes are often very close to the lake. Some homes are within easy walking distance, while others offer you a close up view. There’s certainly a reason why people who enjoy scenic beauty flock to places that have luxury homes in the summer – it’s a wonderful time of year to escape the normal stresses of life for a while to hang out with friends or family in a relaxing atmosphere.
When browsing for your ideal luxury home away from home you’ll be able to see photos of the properties and get a feel for what its like to live there. The process is a lot like searching for any home. You check out the exterior and interior spaces and some will immediately grab you, while others don’t. We recommend picking out three properties. Choosing more than one allows you to have more flexibility for booking arrangements. Your top choice may not be available for the dates that you want, so it’s always good to have second and third choices to turn to that you can snap up.
Keep in mind that summertime is the hottest time of year to reserve a luxury vacation rental in Skaneateles. The lake is teeming with fish and people are able to go boating on the lake, and enjoy other water activities. Since most people want to live as close as possible to the lake shore, the nicest homes are going to be booked up first during popular summer months. However, even if you aren’t able to secure the most popular places, there are really no bad choices, because all homes offer cozy comfort that you’ll be hard pressed to find elsewhere.
Don’t hesitate another moment. Book your Skaneateles Lake vacation rental today.Posted in Finger Lakes, Skaneateles Lake | Tagged Vacation in Skaneateles, Vacation Rentals in Skaneateles | Comments Off on Summer is the Perfect Time to Enjoy Skaneateles Lake ← Older posts
