Every detail is thought through making for a very comfortable and relaxed stay. Owner leaves you to do your own thing while discreetly making sure everything is in place for the guests. Very beautiful antique furniture and special pieces.

This is by far the most BEAUTIFUL and CLASSY B&B in the Skaneateles area that I found. The Bed is so lofty and comfortable. The shower is awesome and well as all the other top notch amenities.

My husband and I stayed at 34 State for my birthday weekend. We loved everything about the Barrow Suite - tastefully decorated with personal touches; luxurious bed linens, towels, and toiletries; and spacious in size. The location is perfect - 5 minute walk to downtown, shops, restaurants and the lake. Our host gave us our privacy but was always available which we appreciated. We definitely plan on coming back the next time we visit Skaneateles.

Lovely B&B!

Wonderful place to stay and very welcoming people. Would recommend staying at this location. Very short walk to the shops and lake but far enough away that it was quiet at night. Beautifully decorated rooms with great charm. Very comfortable bed.

On a quitter side street with two suites, 34 State is the a wonderful find in Skaneateles. A short, picturesque walk to the water and downtown. Katie and her staff are marvelous and the rooms, finishes, and linens are some of the finest we have ever seen. We can't recommend this property any higher, it's just spectacular.

Wonderful Finger Lakes overnight

My wife and I enjoyed a delightful overnight stay at Lake Skaneateles. Our hosts at 34 State provided wonderful accommodations and fantastic recommendations for local dining. Our room was beautifully appointed and the house overall couldn't be more perfect. If you are planning any time in the area, don't miss staying at this wonderful place.

The perfect stay

The house is beautifully decorated and the rooms are comfortable and very clean. The bathroom was so spa-like & spaceous, the sitting room was so welcoming & cozy and the bed was comfortable. My husband told Katie he never slept so well and asked where we could purchase the pillows. Katie did everything possible to make our stay perfect & even offer to help us get the pillows my husband fell in love with. She planned our wine tour, answered all our questions & made suggestions to help us have a great mini vacation. The service she used for our wine tour was very informative, courteous and helpful. We were able to sit back and enjoyed the wine tour. I would recommend the 34 State Suite to everyone and we are looking forward to another stay
