Built as a stagecoach stop in 1807, the Sherwood Inn has always been a favorite resting place for travelers. Our Skaneateles, New York bed and breakfast has a handsome lobby with fireplace, gift shop, antiques, and oriental rugs. Each room has been restored to the beauty of a bygone era to create a relaxing harmony away from everyday cares and many of our guest rooms overlook the beautiful Skaneateles Lake.

Fine dining and the Sherwood are synonymous, and we have been recognized by the New York Times, Bon Appetit, Country Living, Harper's Bazaar and New York magazines. Our extensive menu offers American cooking with a continental touch, accompanied by an impressive wine list.
