Our store is located in the quaint, charming village of Skaneateles, New York. Founded in 1830, the village sits at the north end of pristine Skaneateles Lake and is acclaimed for its picturesque views and natural beauty. The name Skaneateles, pronounced "skan-ee-atlas," is an Iroquois word meaning "long lake." The 16-mile stretch forms the pinky finger of the Finger Lakes region of Central New York State and is said to be one of the cleanest lakes in the world.
In the historic downtown district, restored buildings that date back to the mid-1790s now house the village's distinct shops and galleries. Skaneateles offers a variety of excellent foods, distinctive fashions, local art, home accessories, antiques, and Mirbeau—the area's only four-star spa.
The village is host to thousands of vacationers each year and welcomes visitors with special events such as the world-famous summer music festival, antique boat shows, summer concerts in the park, Charles Dickens' Old-Fashioned Christmas (featuring caroling and horse drawn carriage rides), nearby Finger Lake winery tours, and much more.
