Skaneateles is the Eastern Gateway to the Finger Lakes.
The name is derived from the Iroquois term for the adjacent Skaneateles Lake, which means "long lake." Skaneateles is just a short drive southwest of Syracuse and southeast of Rochester. and once you arrive, you may just want to stay!
White Birch Vineyards
We must recommend our favorite local winery, tip-top amongst some of the Finger Lakes' best! White Birch Vineyards is a very short trip from Hobbit Hollow House and boasts a welcoming tasting room, amazing quality wines, and a welcoming atmosphere. Tell them we sent you!
