The cold, dark days and nights of winter don’t have to be miserable if you stay in one of our Skaneateles luxury vacation rentals. We offer cozy comfort in luxurious surroundings that can turn the winter doldrums into an adventure you’ll cherish. This winter, take a trip to the Finger Lakes and discover a winter wonderland that is miles away from the every day and filled with ways to stay warm and savor some downtime.
1. Use the Fireplaces
There’s nothing like a roaring fire to warm up the atmosphere and make things cozy. Many of our vacation rentals in Skaneateles feature working fireplaces. Invite a few friends over and relax with your loved ones in front of a crackling blaze while you sip some warm drinks you’ve made in the gourmet kitchen of your home-away-from-home. With lots of comfortable furniture, you can relax and chat or set up a board game to challenge your mind while the warmth of the fire soothes away your winter woes.
2. Snuggle With Your Pet
We know your dog is a member of the family. That’s why many of our Finger Lakes vacation rentals are pet-friendly, check our property listings for details. Nothing makes a home cozier than being able to snuggle up on the couch and watch television or view the scenery with your furry best friend by your side. Take a walk through Skaneateles with Fido or throw a few tennis balls in the yard. Whatever you like to do in the winter is better with your best friend by your side, so be sure to rent a pet-friendly home and bring along your snuggle buddy to keep you warm and cozy.
