A Perfect Day in Skaneateles, New York

By Katie Hess, Innkeeper of 10 Fitch


Upon Your Arrival

Pleasantly greeted by the 10 Fitch staff, you can relax and enjoy gourmet hors d’oeuvres and a glass of regional wine by the fireplace while your bags are carried to your room. No worries for dinner, your reservations have already been made, dining ranges from the world class 5-course dinner at Mirbeau Dining Room, to the homegrown produce of Elderberry Pond, or the friendly local pub Parker’s.

Your Perfectly Romantic Day Awaits

Comfy in your lush bedding, you will rise to the newspaper and fresh coffee awaiting you either in your room or on the terrace overlooking the gardens. Gourmet breakfast of Eggs Benedict, Gran Marnier French Toast, or more basic fare if you so desire gets you on track for your Perfect Day.

A picnic basket, complete with a checkered blanket awaits as you head out the door. Hop on our moutain bikes for a short ride to the lake, where you can take off in our kayak and seek out a quiet spot to set up for lunch. Or choose to have a car and driver chauffeur you to the many Finger Lakes wineries and shopping at Mackenzie-Childs all  while taking in the breathtaking countryside of the Finger Lakes Region.

Arrive back at the inn for a massage in our tranquil spa room, or perhaps a brief nap. Spruce up and head over to the beautiful village of Skaneateles, where President and Mrs. Clinton vacation. Walk through the quaint village taking in the unique shops, then head to the local dock and step aboard the Judge Ben Wiles for a first hand look at Skaneateles Lake, one of the cleanest lakes in the world! The Judge offers a dinner cruise narrated throughout highlighting the gorgeous homes that line the waterfront.

At the End of Your Perfect Day

Upon returning to 10 Fitch Bed and Breakfast, wind down with a surprise candlelit Jacuzzi champagne and chocolates. A bed of rose petals awaits you when you return to your room…
