Be sure to roam Genesee, Jordan, and Fennell Streets to browse all of the delicious possibilities before settling in for a bite to eat.  Charming coffee shops, cafes, bakeries, and book shops are tucked throughout the village, offering warm temptations for chilly visitors.  Save room for a taste of what the village restaurants have to offer.

Skaneateles’ rich history, gorgeous old homes, shops, boutiques, restaurants, and picturesque location at the northern tip of stunning Skaneateles Lake, inspire visitors year-round and offer a delightful backdrop to Dickens’ vision of Christmas.

Don’t miss it!
