Stayed overnight July 31, 2013 to celebrate our 32nd anniversary. I can't say enough about how special the owner made us feel. Wayne was informative, funny, accommodating, & a great cook! Breakfast was awesome & his special scone recipe was to die for. Our room was gorgeous, spotlessly clean and very comfortable - nothing was lacking. I would definitely stay there again, and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Skaneateles area- you won't be sorry!

Great Place

We stayed for a night in spring 2012, stayed in the back house. Everything was excellent at ArborHouse. Room was beautiful, very clean, had a fridge available outside of room. Did not have dinner there but breakfast was excellent. Close walk to town. Will definitely stay again.

Our room was beautifully appointed, clean and neat...more than we expected. Wayne was a very courteous and friendly. He showed us few other rooms and we were VERY impressed with the colors and the furnishings. The breakfast was very good and the dining room was set up very attractively. Very homey. Arbor House was in walking distance of all the restaurants and shops. Can't imagine staying anywhere else and will tell all my friends and family, if they want a little getaway, go to Skaneateles and DEFINITELY stay at Arbor House. I checked all the reviews and everyone had wonderful things to say. The one that wasn't good, sounded like this person is very hard to please and seems like a very negative person. So, don't go by that review, but by all the GOOD reviews, because I totallyagree with them.

A delightful stay in July.

I compared reviews for a number of Inns to stay at for my mother-in-laws funeral, and the place her son wanted to go to was generally trashed, so I told him to check out the Arbor House Inn. Since he was booking all 4 rooms for all of us, he got a 35% discount, and everything was just as nice as we could have hoped for. David was an exemplary host, and Connie & Danielle kept things in good order. I heartily recommend: when visiting Skaneateles, stay at David's house!

We stayed in June of 2010 in the Concord room in the brick house. We were very impressed with the friendliness of the owner and the breakfasts were excellent. He was most helpful in telling us about the area---where to go and what to do. We will stay again in june this year in the Bella Rosa which is a superb area of the complex,
