While you are considering places to stay in the Finger Lakes during your visit here, you probably assume that a hotel is your only option as far as room accommodations. It’s a fact that hotels spend a lot of money luring visitors to their doors, touting how “luxurious” the rooms are while charging you for every little extra.
Maybe you’ve already looked at a few hotels and made tentative plans to stay at one. Before you pick up that phone to call hotel reservations, consider a totally different rooming option. What if you could rent a luxury home in the Finger Lakes for a few days that included spacious bedrooms, in addition to a living room, dining area and kitchen?
Would that be nicer than a hotel room?
You bet it is. That’s why many visitors coming to the Finger Lakes area on vacation are turning to Skaneateles luxury rentals instead of settling for the same old hotel accommodations. You know what it’s like staying in a hotel room. There are one or two beds, a dresser, maybe a tiny closet, and a bit of space for moving around. Sure, you may be on the go a lot during your stay, but you still have to come back to that dinky hotel room for relaxation and rest.
And, it’s going to cost you extra if you want a larger room, especially one with a nice view – if one is even available. Tack on room service extras and your luxury hotel room isn’t much of a bargain. To truly get the most “bang for your buck” it’s a better idea to spring for a real luxury place that feels just like home. As a matter of fact, luxury rentals are considered by many to be a home away from home. That’s because when you arrive, there’s no check in desk or rows of rooms filled with strangers.
When you rent out a Finger Lakes luxury home for your vacation you get to have the whole place to yourself for the duration of your stay. These comfortable accommodations give you the ultimate in privacy, which is a luxury in itself. Arrive at your rental home, close the door and kick back and do whatever you feel like. Skaneateles rentals include perks such as picturesque views, beautiful wood floors, plush furniture, fireplace and big screen TV.
You also have the option of cooking your own meals inside a modern kitchen, dining at home when the mood strikes. For people who love cooking this is ideal. Or, order take out and bring it back home. Some homes have wooden decks where you can sit outdoors and relax while gazing at the nearby lake.
A luxury home is just that – a place where you’ll feel cozy, warm and well rested. Best of all, you’re able to enjoy small town living, while still being relatively close to local cities and lots of fun events. So, get your vacation started out on the right foot and book a beautiful Finger Lakes vacation rental home today.Posted in Finger Lakes, Skaneateles Vacation Rentals | Tagged Finger Lakes Luxury Rentals, finger Lakes vacation rentals, Skaneateles Lake Luxury Rentals | Comments Off February 4, 2015

Spending your winter vacation in the Finger Lakes is one of the best decisions you can make, if you’re looking for old-fashioned outdoor fun. The main attraction is the beautiful parks, streams, lakes and forests that abound in this region. If you love the idea of skiing, hiking or simply walking in snow country, you’ll get a kick out of spending time here.
While you’re planning your escape from the usually stresses of everyday life, consider checking out Finger Lakes vacation rentals. We have some awesome luxury places to stay in the Finger Lakes during the winter months that are just as cozy and inviting as home.
Build a Glorious Snowman or Snow Woman
At the very top of our list of fun things to do is a time-honored favorite of young and old – building a snowman. When the white, fluffy stuff comes down and blankets the ground it’s hard to resist the giddy desire to go outdoors and feel it with your hands. There are plenty of areas that are prime snowman building territory. Start out with a small ball of snow and gradually roll it until it grows large enough to form body parts. After you’ve constructed the main body frame, the next fun part is finding creative ways to create his face and arms. Be sure to take a snapshot of your creation and post it on social media so family and friends can see your snowman.
Hey, there’s no rule that says you have to stop at just one snowperson. Build a snow woman, or a group of snow people, each having a unique character trait. Snowman building is one of those activities that make you feel like a kid again – and, that’s not a bad thing at all.
Hit the Ski Slopes
The Finger Lakes has some mighty fine skiing and you can spend lots of time on the powder white slopes when you visit Bristol Mountain. You’ll find plenty of thrills on one of its many slopes and enjoy breathtaking views of the surrounding wilderness. Bristol Mountain has the highest vertical rise between the Adirondacks and Rocky Mountains. Best of all, you can ski during the day and evening thanks to night lighting and then warm up in front of a cozy fire at one of our luxury Skaneateles vacation rentals.
Go On a Snowshoe or Walking Hike
If you prefer to walk along a snowy trail and take your time enjoying local wildlife and the forests, visit the Cummings Nature Center. Go on guided snowshoe hikes that provide hikers with plenty of fun exercise and interesting facts about the area. Alternatively, take a winter woods hike and explore areas teeming with deer, woodland animals and native plants.
Take Stunning Photographs of Natural Wonders
There is no beauty like natural beauty and you can capture some amazing snapshots of nature at its most alluring during the winter. Visit local parks that are open during this time of year and you’ll be drawn in by unique ice formations sitting amongst the stark stillness of bare trees. The slow moving waters of a gurgling brook or unfrozen waterfall occasionally break solemn quiet.
Another way to enjoy your stay here is to reserve a warm and cozy condo that is a home away from home. Warm up next to a crackling fire while sipping wine or hot chocolate.

If you’re looking for places to stay in the Finger Lakes that are peaceful and filled with rich history, Fingerlakes Luxury Rentals reminds you to look no further than Skaneateles. This quaint village takes its name from the Native American expression for “long lake,” because the town is nestled next to a pleasantly long Skaneateles Lake. On crisp, clear days visitors can stroll along the lake and enjoy its scenic beauty, as countless others have done since before there was a town. The lake isn’t the only spot in town to see, you can easily take a casual walking tour around the village for a bit of relaxation and historical enlightenment.
During the early days of the village, people were drawn to its idyllic surroundings, just as many people are today. After its first incorporation as a village in 1833, Skaneateles attracted a number of prominent people who created factories and shops, and built fine homes for their families. Many of these homes are still around and you can gaze at them while walking downtown and neighborhood streets. There are also a good number of stately vintage homes dotting the lakeside areas.
As the village grew in size, vacationers with financial means flocked here to indulge in a water cure established by one Dr. Jackson. During this era, Skaneateles was a popular summer resort spot. Finger Lakes Vacationers stayed in cottages or at a spacious hotel. The special water that provided supposed health cures came from a local mineral spring. While the exact location of some of these old tourists locations are lost to time, you can still enjoy discovering hidden streams and waterfalls in some areas.
The village has put in a lot of effort to restore old homes and buildings to their former state, and you’ll see this up close during your walk. Like many communities in New York State, local residents have a strong commitment to historical preservation of older buildings. This is why the village feels culturally vibrant, even though many structures are over 100 years old. Stop and admire the various architectural styles and details. You’ll appreciate structural details that are no longer a feature of modern architecture.
In Skaneateles, the past meshes beautifully with the present. Village historical accounts note that many colorful and interesting people once graced these village streets, homes, shops, churches and city buildings. We’re happy to say that not too much has changed, except there are many more people living here, and a lot more good people coming here for their relaxation cure. Oh, and you can drive here instead of traveling by horse and buggy – thank goodness.

If you’re in the mood to really enjoy the splendor of fall, come to the Finger Lakes and feast your eyes upon the magnificent cornucopia of colors offered by our beautiful trees. It’s difficult to put into mere words what it feels like to stand here gazing up at the tree leaves while trying to count as many fall colors as possible. Traditional fall colors on each tree branch mingle in perfect harmony like a silent symphony. And, truthfully, the best way to experience this amazing autumn display is to come here in person and plan a weekend stay at a Finger Lakes vacation rental then stroll along the streets of a local village like Skaneateles. Only in person can you truly appreciate this annual event.
What makes the Finger Lakes so special during the fall season is the amount of trees and leaves that live within and around towns, cities and villages. There are still plenty of pristine natural areas here where trees have been flourishing for hundreds of years. When you come here and gaze at these magnificent specimens, just remember that they’ve been sitting here for many generations, going through their continuous seasonal transitions.
While many small towns like Skaneateles have disappeared with the passage of time, this cozy village looks much the same as it did 100 years ago. Sure, shops, homes and people have modernized, but the essence of the village remains the same. This means that locals and visitors alike can walk around enjoying the natural beauty of the fall season. We suggest you take some time to block out a whole weekend stay at a Skaneateles luxury rental home to indulge in some nature watching. You can leisurely lock arms with your partner and have a romantic stroll around the lake. Or, you can tour the village and surrounding areas, visiting historical places and serene parks.
We suggest that you consider staying at one of our gorgeous Skaneateles vacation rentals. It’s absolutely the best way to take a break and relax in an unhurried atmosphere. A vacation rental is like a home away from home. Instead of settling for a cramped hotel room, you’ll be in the lap of luxury as you lounge in the living room, eat a meal in the dining room or nap in your comfortable bedroom. Between enjoying the beautiful leaves, gazing at the lake, eating and shopping, you can hang out inside a contemporary condo or home that makes you feel right at home.
