Skaneateles, NY is a charming very walkable small town, right on one of the finger lakes. Since our room at the Packwood House was so nice and the town so interesting, we extended our stay for a couple more days. (Skaneateles is pronounced approx. Skinny-atlas if we believe the local beer label) Packwood House is part of the neighboring fine...

This is not the first time we have stayed at The Packwood House, and it always is clean, comfortable and charming. Continental breakfact served at The SHerwood Inn is part of the package this is good too. Great location right in town and you can park your car and just enjoy the Village life.

We stayed there for two nights last weekend for the annual Skaneateles Antique Boat show. The Packwood house is an offshoot to the Sherwood Inn a few buildings away. It could be confusing for people who don't know that they need to check in at the Sherwood Inn and going on such a busy weekend, parking is difficult. I wish...

Its been quite a few years since I stayed here. Very clean and comfortable. The rooms are a nice size and we had a lovely view of the lake. Complimentary breakfast at The Sherwood the next morning was great.

I reviewed this hotel 10 years ago when my husband and I stayed there multiple times. I loved it then and still do. The good news is that not much has changed though there is evidence of upgrades. We were vaguely in the area traveling for business and detoured from the highway despite the snowy weather. We were so happy...

The Packwood House is a small hotel associated with the Sherwood Inn. Well decorated and comfortable rooms with a nice little balcony facing the lake (non lakeview rooms available too). The lobby is not staffed and there is no on-site restaurant. For services and amenities beyond the room, you go to the Sherwood Inn which is a very short walk...
