Every Room is unique and our room was very spacious and had a gas fireplace. When we arrived on Friday evening the Inn was very crowded but it cleared out after about... More

Several visits here, never disappointed. Grilled salmon salad hooked me several years ago, along with the French onion soup. Next the crab cakes which are always a favorite to my palate. Yesterday the hot turkey sandwich and hot cider. Dickens Festival characters in song in the lobby, along with a log fire and decorations of tester year. It was amazing.

While enroute northward, my partner received an email with a special rate for the Sherwood Inn. After a bit of discussion, we decided to take advantage. We were able to reserve the smallest room in the Inn, room 26. Comfortable, cozy, close, it was. We enjoyed our brief sojourn. More about meals elsewhere.

This is one of the best hotels to stay in if you're planning a trip , the front desk staff was always happy and very helpful. The rooms are nice . It's located right in the heart of the town and within walking distance to everything.

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Sherwood Inn in Skaneateles, NY and my wife and I had a terrific time. We ate dinner there as well and the meal was fantastic. Every person with whom we had contact at the Inn couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating........great experience overall in a beautiful town and setting.

The Sherwood Inn has the perfect ambience located next to Skaneateles Lake. The Inn is historic, well attended to, furniture and decor all period pieces, along with a tavern on the ground floor which served excellent food. Our Saturday night stay, however, took a turn when the wedding party on the ground floor started its reception and the booming, bass... More

Our daughters hosted our 40th wedding anniversary party at the Sherwood. In 2013, our daughter and son in law had their wedding reception there. The staff treats us as honored guests.
