Skaneateles Lake is the Eastern-most of the Finger Lakes.

One of the cleanest, clearest lakes in the world.

Your host,  Dr. John J. Maurillo, enjoying the lake.  The Boathouse has been in the Maurillo family for nearly 60 years.  It has been upgraded and remodelled to keep up with the times.  This property is only rented out a few weeks a year so that our family can enjoy it the rest of the season.  We take alot of pride and pleasure in "our little slice of paradise", and hope that you will too!
