While not in the tony village of Skaneatles, this Victorian decorated home is a mere 4 miles down East Lake Rd. A short drive or Uber and you are in the quaint lakeside village with its numerous shops and restaurants. A real value in a pricy town.

Louise and Dale, the proprietors, are extremely nice people and the place is very pretty and quaint. We would definitely stay with them again.

Beautiful area and quaint town. Hosts were very gracious and helpful. Steep stairs to second floor bedrooms. Treetops room: creaky floors; spaces around door let in a lot of light; TV did not work properly; both of us hit our heads on slanted ceiling several times. Unfortunately, not our best night's rest. Left early next morning, did not want to wait until 9am for Continental breakfast.

Being an older home we knew what to expect - low slanted ceiling in our upstairs bedroom and one had to be careful not to bump their head. The stairs weren't mentioned - quite steep and narrow, no handrail - for elderly people who may have mobility issues it should be known. My hubby had a recent knee replacement and had to be very cautious. I was sneezing a fair bit while there, wasn't until we left and checked the room that I noted under the bed hadn't been vacuumed and wiped in a very long while. Having said the above, the grounds were impeccable, ample parking, delicious breakfast with lots of variety and home recipes, gracious, informative and kind hosts, comfortable beds, lots of hot water for showers. Suggestion: have a Keurig available in the sitting room, would have been nice to have a hot coffee or tea in the common room after a long day sightseeing. Extra comforter in the bedroom for cool nights. Put a slim handrail on the stairs.
Thank you for commenting on your stay with us. We feel badly for your misunderstanding regarding the stairs. The stairs are mentioned in our website and have been for our 16 years as innkeepers. The stairs are the original stairs to the 1837 home and typical for a post and beam home of that era. They do have a railing as required by insurance carriers. As always, each of our bedrooms have a blanket or comforter in the closet. Thank you for the suggestion regarding a Keurig coffee maker. Guests now have access to the Keurig 24 hours a day. We apologize for any inconvenience or discomfort you had during your stay with us.

We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very welcoming B&B with very nice lounge and outdoor spaces available for guests. House is lovely old onel, well furnished, but is not Lakeside - rather across the road from the lake but with lake views. Breakfast was very good, and Louise provided extremely good advice on things to do and see. We had Sunrise room with external bathroom (no shampoo but I could try a true Victorian experience and washed my hair with soap-modern shampoos are better!). Need to use car as no where really to walk to.
Thank you for your kind words. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us.

The B&B was a beautiful old home (built in 1837), white with black shutters. The grounds displayed several meticulously kept and beautiful landscaped gardens. Each room within was tastefully decorated, all with a plethora of amazing antique pieces of all sizes and purposes. Dale and Louise Zabel were wonderful "innkeepers". We had a wonderful 3 course breakfast our first morning there. First they brought us delicious poppy seed bread with marmalade, choice of juices & coffee or tea. Then we had fresh fruit cup, plus refills as wanted. Last but definitely not at all least, we each enjoy 2 fantastic coddled eggs, plus 4 pieces of bacon, and choice of English muffins, toast or bagels, again with any wanted refills. We felt very pampered and 'coddled' by meals' end. We would have loved to eat there the next morning, also, but had previously made plans for breakfast with a large group of friends. We enjoyed chatting with Dale and Louise, and still marvel at their ability to take such good care of the B&B, and us as well. They were wonderful hosts.
Thank you for being so complimentary. We are delighted that you enjoyed your visit.

In spite of the unexpected rain and sleet on the evening we arrived at Aunt Louise's B & B, we had a most enjoyable stay in the Tree Tops room The view of the lake the next morning was lovely, bright and inspiring. Our gourmet breakfast of coddled eggs, bacon, fruit, special juices, coffee, and homemade sweet breads was wonderful! Dale and Louise were outstanding hosts and made us feel like family with their warm hospitality. Our room was tastefully decorated, comfortable and peaceful. We highly recommend this historic B & B and look forward to a longer stay next time we are in Skaneateles.
5 on June 01, 2016
Our very first B&B experience turned out to be amazing!! Louise and Dale go out of their way to make you feel so very welcome in their home. The interior is beautifully decorated, and the soft background music creates a very relaxing atmosphere. Our "Lake View" room was roomy, clean, and very inviting. The bottle of wine left for us was a wonderful extra bonus, as we were on our Honeymoon. Our stay allowed us to enjoy 3 homemade breakfasts, which were beyond incredible!! Not only did Louise and Dale present our meals so wonderfully, they gave a brief explanation of each of their creations as they were served. Words can not say enough regarding the hospitality we enjoyed, the friendliness we received, and the atmosphere we loved. Again, in a word, AMAZING!!

Excellent - can't wait to go back? Love, love, love it!

A true get-away! Wine and chocolate in front of a roaring fire with best friends in a warm, homey setting. The rooms were exceptionally clean and Dale and Louise couldn,t have been nicer or more accommodating. Their knowledge of local restaurants and history was spot on! We have been there for two years in a row and plan annual return visits! Love, love, love

Looking forward to staying again for the 4rth time, dale and Luis are such great people can't imagine staying anywhere else when we stay in Skaneateles New York

Our party consisted of an 80 year old grandmother, 52 year old daughter and 19 year old college senior granddaughter. Aunt Louise and Dale made each of us feel so comfortable in their charming beautifully appointed period "Lake House" filled with family antiques that seemed to come alive with their storied history ....especially the "headless bride!" The warmth of their fireplace, delicious breakfast with its "secret ingredient," beautifully served and their colorful grounds covered with leaves each added to our reluctance to leave being a part of their family if only for a little while. The Kennedy family South Bristol, NY

Lovely place, good views. Very comfortable welcoming innkeepers. The only slight difficulty was getting a suitcase up very steep stairs.

We enjoyed the area and the lovely overnight stay. Dale and Laura were wonderful host and hostess. We would go back again as we enjoyed the accommodations, the lovely breakfast and warm hospitality.

The breakfasts were fantastic. Warm friendly hosts. Very comfortable.
5 on August 04, 2014
Dale and Louise are such delightful people. They are perfect innkeepers, and you should stay here just to meet them. However, there are lots of other reasons to visit Aunt Louise's. Breakfast is delicious. We really enjoyed the other guests. The rooms are immaculate. Most of all, there is easy access to the lovely village of Skaneateles without all of the noise and traffic.
4.8 on July 25, 2014
Inn keepers were very friendly and prepared delicious breakfasts. Very comfortable accommodations and close to town but far enough away to be quiet.
4.6 on July 18, 2014
Built in the mid-1800's, the B&B exemplified the service and comfort one would expect from staying at an authentic old house. We enjoyed our host and hostess, and our three night stay was a comfortable retreat after a long day of actvities. Our only disappointment was that the B&B was not right on the lake, but our room did have views of the lake, and you could see the lake from their strategically placed outdoor seating. It was one of the better B&B's we have stayed at over the years.
4.8 on July 01, 2014
A great way to start exploring the Finger Lakes region - clean, cozy, and comfortable. Lovely gardens and view of the lake; each bedroom has its own bathroom. Easily accessible from town, with very warm, friendly, low-key hosts. Homemade breakfast was absolutely delicious (sample: lemon poppy seed bread, strawberries and bananas with mint, artichoke quiche, sausage, croissants, fresh juices and good, strong coffee) served at a communal table with genial conversation and pretty china. A romantic and intimate setting to create new memories.
4.2 on June 24, 2014

5 on September 11, 2013
We weren't out of the driveway before we were brainstorming about how to get back to Aunt Louisa's. Wonderful homey feeling and delicious creative food. Treetops room was great. Louise and Dale were gracious and entertaining hosts. I'm sure that the other two couples we shared breakfast with will surely agree. All were sad to end the stay even though they had full interesting days planned.
5 on September 08, 2013
Our host and hostess are wonderful people. They share their home in every respect. The breakfast is an experience, including a juice quiz. We have a lot of great memories to share with friends.
5 on September 06, 2013
This was our first stay at Aunt Louise's B &B, although we have known the innkeepers for many years. They take great pride in their home and make you feel very welcome and comfortable. The breakfasts were wonderful and we especially were delighted to learn about "coddled eggs.". Hope to visit there again and continue to enjoy the finger lakes area.
4.6 on September 06, 2013
Aunt Louise's B&B was wonderful. Beautiful setting, lovely innkeepers and the food was fabulous.
4.6 on September 04, 2013
My daughters and I were traveling thru upstate New York and found this lovely B&B. When we arrived early evening, they helped us get reservations at a great Italian restaurant. Breakfast the next morning was wonderful. The room for the 3 of us was perfect. Highly recommend.
5 on August 30, 2013
Louise and Dale are great inn keepers. Our stay was restful and relaxing Dale and Louise were very knowledgable with a wealth of information on the local attractions, eateries, and places to see locally. Waking each morning to a fantastic breakfast and relaxing in the yard after a day of site seeing made for a great stay!
4.4 on August 26, 2013
Louise (who is truly an aunt) and her husband, Dale, are excellent hosts who make you feel instantly welcome. The main part of the house is charming and the gardens are extraordinary. Views of the lake from the property are wonderful. The room in which we stayed (Tree Top) met all of our needs. Breakfast was tasty and filling and the service was fantastic. My wife and I would certainly stay at Aunt Louise's B&B again.
4.4 on August 26, 2013
Stayed with my husband only one night unfortunately ... we would have loved to enjoy Louise and Dale's warm welcome, charming house and outstanding breakfast for a couple of days
5 on August 21, 2013
I stayed at Aunt Louise's Lake House in Skaneateles 8/16/13 - 8/18/13. My stay there was wonderful. Louise and Dale are wonderful inn-keepers: friendly, informative, and helpful. The common areas and my room were clean and comfortable. The inn was remarkably quiet despite the fact that it was full. Breakfast was delicious and quite filling. The inn is located about 4 miles south of Skaneateles, across the road from the lake. This means that it is in a quiet location with easy access to the attractions in town. I fully intend to stay here the next time I am in Skaneateles.
5 on August 21, 2013
My daughter and I came for one night and I wish so much it could have been longer! The house and grounds were charming and our hosts, Louise and Dale were more so! Breakfast was delicious! There was even complimentary cream sherry in the evening! I highly recommend this B&B

Aunt Louise's made my wife and I feel very comfortable. We had a beautiful room and enjoyed a very smooth cream sherry night cap. The breakfast was extraordinary. We had to leave early one morning and missed the breakfast. Fresh fruit and coffee cake along with coffee was waiting for us in the kitchen before we left. A very nice treat before we started on our journey.

Our 2nd visit to the finger lakes (Skaneatlas/Auburn area) was a lovely weekend in July of 2013. Louise and Dale were wonderful hosts, very personable. The house is lovely and quiet with a hill overlooking the lake. Breakfast was delicious each day. You could tell that our hosts took great pride in their facility and were interested in creating a memorable stay and dining experience.

Wonderful location, with a splendid view of the lake, surrounded by woods. Our hosts were warm and pleasant and made us feel very comfortable. Highly recommended.
4.8 on June 06, 2013
We stayed at Aunt Louise's in April 2013 and found it to be just perfect for us! The owners, Dale and Louise were most gracious and friendly. We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine while overlooking the lake across the street, and drove into town for dinner, which was only about 5 minutes from the B&B. Our room was well appointed and cozy, the bed was sooooo comfy, and we had a private bathroom. Louise and Dale served up a wonderful breakfast consisting of waffles, homemade breads, bacon, fruit, yogurt, granola-the works! We drove off well-rested, and well-fed! :-) We would definitely stay here again! Jeanine and Doug

Enjoyed very much. Right in the Finger Lakes area. Great shops and restaurants.
3.6 on December 12, 2012
This was our first stay at Aunt Louise's and our second overnighter in Skaneatelas. We have visted on previous occasions and are familiar with the area. Aunt Louise's is a very quaint and charming Inn and although our stay was short, Louise and Dale were very friendly and made us feel at home. We arrived Friday evening and due to family committments had to leave well before breakfast on Sunday (Dale made sure that the coffee was ready for us). Our breakfast with the other guests on Saturday was enjoyable. The Inn is a few miles outside of town and the grounds are lovely. There was a great view of the lake from our room ("Treetops") across the road. The bathroom was large, but as with most B&B's we've stayed at could use some additional counterspace for toiletries. Would like to stay here in the warmer months in order to enjoy all it has to offer.
5 on December 11, 2012
Louise and Dale were excellent hosts. They made us feel right at home and were very accommodating. Liked all the holiday decorations. Breakfast-Loved the coddled eggs! Everything was clean and comfortable.

Louise and Dale are absolutely wonderful hosts and treated both my wife and I as honored house guests. Their home is very comfortable and the accommodations the same. Breakfast was delightful...Louise takes great pride in her cuisine and quite frankly, we enjoyed our single night stay immensely. Would highly recommend.
3.8 on September 17, 2012
As the title say this is just what my girlfriend and I wanted. A small quaint B&B with wonderful hosts. Louise and Dale were extremely friendly and made us feel at home as soon as we arrived. Chatting with the other guests on the back patio was a great treat as well as sitting on the front porch rocking chairs looking at Skaneateles Lake right across the street,
3.8 on September 10, 2012
Aunt Louise's was very enjoyable for us. The room was very accomodating and clean. We also had a private bathroom with both a shower and bathtub. The view was great overlooking Skaneateles Lake! The hosts were pleasantly gracious and service met our needs. They even explained the history of the house.

We were warmly greeted by Louise and Dave in their home overlooking the lake. Skaneateles is a nice little town with many neat and unique shops. The B&B is a short drive down the east side of the lake, so it is convenient. Breakfast was delicious, and special dietary needs were considered. Great folks, good value.
4.8 on August 19, 2012
Louise & Dale made us very comfortable in the Sunrise Room. We stayed two nights and had a great time checking out the local area. Louise & Dale had a superb knowledge of the town and what it had to offer; including directing us to sumptuous meals at Rosalie's Cuicina & The Sherwood Inn, a sight seeing cruise on the lake and the local winery. Breakfast was served with fineze in old English style, beautifully laid table with the finest of crockery & cutlery. Thank you for a great stay Louise & Dale. Lyn & Bryan, Melbourne, Australia

This was our first visit to a B&B. We loved it. The owners are friendly, helpful and professional. Breakfast was unique and very good. We enjoyed breadfast conversation with interesting people. We would have never encountered such interesting people if we stayed at a hotel. Thank You, Aunt Louise!!!
5 on June 23, 2012
What a delightful way to have a get away. We had a wonderful time scouting out the village. Took a 50 min boat tour around the lake which was also very enjoyable. The highlight would have to be the special attention Louise, Dale(and Allie) showed us. Breakfast both mornings was outstanding...and we especially enjoyed the special "mamosa" toast Louise and Dale made to acknowledge our 30th anniversary....we came away with the feeling that we had made new friends, with the hopes that our paths will cross again in the fall...Thanks again Louise and Dale
3.8 on June 20, 2012
Aunt Louise's was very charming. Louise couldn't do enough for you and was very attentive especially when it came to meal restrictions. We stayed in the larger room with it's own bath (Lake View). However, the view was across the street and minimal. The room was very comfortable but didn't have enough places for you to put your own things. I would have liked to see a shelf or table in the bathroom for our cosmetics instead of the small chair in the corner. The grounds were beautiful with lots of cozy places to sit and look at the lake across the street. It was about a 10 minute ride into the town.
4.6 on June 12, 2012
Aunt Louise's Lake House B&B is in a perfect location with a beautiful view of the Skaneateles River. The yard is gorgeous with blooming flowers and the home warm and inviting. Dale and Louise are wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home. We very much enjoyed our conversations with them. The breakfast was terrific. The broiled grapefruit was "to die for", plus delicious waffles and yummy cranberry bread.

4.6 on May 30, 2012
We recently stayed at Aunt Louise's bed and breakfast in Skaneateles. The property is very quaint and charming, the hosts Louise and Dale are wonderful people and the area is extremely picturesque. They not only made us feel welcome, but did everything possible to make the trip an extremely enjoyable experience. We had 3 young kids in the group, and not once did we feel that they were not welcome. Each morning Louise, Dale and Ally took a lot of trouble to cater to all our individual needs and put out a new treat for the kids. Thank you for taking such good care of us, we would highly recommend this property, for people with or without kids in the group. We shall definitely be back soon.
5 on May 13, 2012
We stayed here the first time because we were in the area. Ever since, we purposely drive the 6 hours just to stay here! The personal and professional caliber of our innkeepers is consistently excellent. "Aunt" Louise and dale will be seeing more of the Clearys.

You definitely won't walk away hungry. The innkeepers served very generous portions, and quality of the breakfast was top-notch. They were very accommodating to special dietary needs. Although the rooms weren't particularly memorable, they were comfortable. Make sure to bring your own toiletries. Only soap was provided for guests. We liked the location. The views of the lake were magnificent, and the drive into town was scenic.

Our hosts out did themselves when following a storm that knocked out the power in the surrounding area they proceeded to cook our breakfast on their BBQ. It was a wonderful breakfast non-the-less coddled eggs and all. We plan to return and highly recommend this little B.B gem. Adrian & Vivian Kyte Burlington, Ontario.

The innkeepers were very, very nice and accommodating. Lake View room was large, but the bathroom was very small. Tiny TV, noisy air conditioner, no amenities to speak of. Pictures on the web are a little deceiving. Grounds are lovely, but nowhere to go without a car.

Recently stayed at Aunt Louise's Bed & Breakfast in Skaneateles, NY. It is 4 miles out of town and sits directly on a very heavy, high traffic road. 3 rooms in the Inn, only one is rentable. Our room was small, dormer ceilings, small, inadequate bathroom. Breakfast was ok, but heavy on sugar and calories. People nice however don't seem to be experienced B&B owners. On a scale of 1 to 5 I would give this a 2.....very pricey. You can see the lake from front of house however it is across the highway...this is not a lake front property, picture is very deceiving.

We stayed in the LakeView Suite. The room was very nice, and had a great view of the lake. Louise and Dale were extremely friendly, and helpful, and prepared an elegant breakfast. Overall, for the price, hospitality, and location this BB is a winner, and future spot for us again.

Our first visit to Aunt Louise's Lake House B&B was a great experience on a warm September weekend in 2009, that we decided to visit again in March,2011. We stayed at the B&B with another couple and found the hospitality, comfort and charm just wonderful. The house offers a choice of spending time together with others by the fire or enjoying some R&R comfortably in the rooms. Great suggestions for places to visit and restaurants to eat at, were given the first time, that we booked some of them again on the next visit. Delicious breakfasts with other guests were so much fun, especially with the great service and sense of humor from our hosts Louise and Dale. See you again, soon !

The house is beautiful and the breakfast great. Overall, I would recommend this hotel. The cons: It is a little strange having the bathroom outside of the room (for the room we stayed in). Luckily we had no one else staying in the house but they wouldn't let us upgrade to a better room (with a bathroom) without paying the difference. I found that a bit annoying since no one else was there anyways.

While on a whirl wind trip through the region, a friend recommended we stay at Aunt Louise's Lake House. We couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised. The house has a wonderful history overlooking one of the most beautiful lakes we've ever seen. The topper was their breakfast. It was outstanding! Not only a gourmet meal filled with unbelievable flavors and aromas, but the dining room setting was so very nice. We ate in a family setting with other guests and we all had a most pleasant experience. Like I said from the beginning, we wish we could have stayed longer!

"There is no place like home" however when you arrive you and are greeted by Dale and Louise, you are home. They are two wonderful people that are generous in their home. My wife and I spent 3 nights and enjoyed every moment. Breakfast was a first class treat. Every morning was a special time and very comfortable in the dining room. The location is a nice spot and the backyard is zen. We will return in the future.

Everything about this trip was peaceful and calm. From the way we were treated to the time we left. Beautiful veiw of the lake, and flower gardens at the inn. Definitely going to plan a return trip. Beacause of the most gracious host. Aunt Louise and Dale who made this trip.

The inn was so comfortable and centrally located. The rural lakefront atmosphere was tranquil, the innkeepers were so kind and friendly, and the food was outstanding! I definitely recommend it to anyone!

This was my first B&B and I was treated with pure hospitality. There was always a roaring fire to sit in front of. An old time crawfoot bath tub awaited me at night. The breakfast was the most unique one I have ever had; from baked apples and grapefruit, to imported juices and coddled eggs. The views from the house were breathtaking.

This is the finest B&B this side of Heaven. The hand of friendship accompanied the gift of truly wonderful hospitality.

We highly recommend Aunt Louise's Bed and Breakfast. The house is on a hill overlooking the lake, with beautiful grounds and gardens. The house is charming and the breakfasts delicious with infinite variety. This is our second visit and we look forward to coming again.

Clean and pretty comfortable. Did not care for the sunrise room ... one small window, mostly filled up by a window air conditioner. I've stayed in a number of bed and breakfasts, and this one feels more like staying with relatives. Gardens are quite pretty ... the lake is viewed across the road and between the houses. The hosts are very nice and had great dining suggestions. Skaneateles is a pretty little town ... the downtown is not in walking distance of the B&B.

Welcoming innkeepers, immaculate guest room decor, ample common areas with room to relax. Lovely view down the sweeping lawns to the lake beyond.
