Louise and Dale were lovely hosts and easy to talk to. The breakfast each morning was delicious. Our room (Treetops) was clean and full of antique character! A wonderful stay, and close to all kinds of fun things to do in Auburn and Skaneateles.

We stayed at Aunt Louise's Lake House (a B & B) this past week-end, (Saturday & Sunday evenings.) Louise and Dale were very gracious hosts, friendly and accommodating. The service was great; Louise hustled to provide me with bottled water when we arrived and I was about to go buy some. Breakfasts were absolutely delicious and served with elegance. (Another...

I wish our schedule would have allowed us to spend more time at this very attractive B&B, built circa 1837 and overlooking one of the most beautiful lakes anywhere. We were on a whirlwind trip that entailed driving over 1700 miles in a week and had only one night to spend at Aunt Louise's. That said, we greatly appreciated Dale...

This is a great traditional B & B. The fire was in the hearth upon our arrival & remained so for the entire 2 days we enjoyed our visit. Marvelous sitting room for visiting & relaxing.

Just spent two delightful days with Dale & Lucille at 'Aunt Lucille's Lakehouse B & B' in Skaneateles, New York. Charming, updated, almost two hundred year old home overlooking Skaneateles Lake. Breakfasts were varied, plentiful and wonderful. Our hosts made us feel like family in their home. So happy to have found 'Aunt Lucille's.'

Louise and Dale are the most charming people. This was my first experience at a B&B and I could not have been more delighted. The décor is outstanding, our room "The Treetop" was gorgeous and our breakfasts! We had a couple in our group that had dietary restrictions and they could not have been more accommodating. Highly recommend a visit...
