Get off the NY thruway & meander down to this old gem. It is worth getting side-tracked. Sit at one of the coziest bars on Skaneateles Lake & ask Martha, barkeep extraordinaire, to pull you a tall, cold "Skinny Atlas" (a local beer) to accompany...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
The manager of The Sherwood Inn states that this review is not of their establishment and from my years of experience with it, I agree with her. Several of the points you make do not connect with fact. So what's the story? Are you a competitor looking to trash the Sherwood Inn or were you actually reviewing the Sherwood Inn in Greene, NY?
