Summertime evokes images in each of us of a special time of the year when our usual cares are set aside and we can take off our shoes to run in the grass, go swimming in the lake, or perhaps listen to the local band play a little music while we sit on the lawn and listen. It’s a time of the year to reconnect with family and friends before school start.
There’s no better place to experience the summer of your dreams than in Skaneateles, NY. This quiet little village comes alive with visitors who want to really enjoy summertime in the Finger Lakes. One has to pinch yourself twice to make sure that what you are seeing and experiencing is real and not just some dream that has been stored up in your mind from years past.

The children can go swimming in what is the clearest and purest water of any of the Finger Lakes. No need for air-conditioning – just a quick dip in the lake and one is instantly cooled and refreshed. Or just sit in the park and enjoy watching the boating on Skaneateles Lake. Or take a cruise on the Judge Ben Wiles, an antique touring boat, and imagine what it would be like to live in one of the estate homes which ring the Lake.
Perhaps taking a stroll is on your mind. There are only two traffic lights which makes it really hard to get lost in such a small town. Visit the shops. Pick up a present for someone special. Have lunch at the Sherwood and remember.
