A visitor from Hong Hong found us by searching Yahoo for Skantaeles. Apparently they found what they were looking for because they spent quite a bit of time perusing our Skaneateles Suites Dockside Vaction Rentals.

We don’t know how to say it in Cantonese, but around here we are Skan E at (eh) less. And welcome to the StorBook Village.

Skaneateles, not Skaeneatlis 

Skaneateles, NY. StoryBook Village in the Fingerlakes Region of Central New York. Hard to pronounce and even harder to spell.

That said, someone found us using a Dogpile search for Skaeneatlis.

The Village and it’s history throw back to the Iroquois Indian Nation. Westward travelers on the Old Seneca Turnpike (another Indian name) first found us because we are the most Eastern of the Finger Lakes. (more…)

Skinnyatlas, Rock Band or Skaneateles StoryBook Village?

A late night web searcher found us, and booked a room, [thank-you-very-much] by googling ‘skinnyatlas’. I did the same and found an East Coast Rock n Roll Band.

Conclusion: If you want music click here. If you want a great place to stay in Skaneateles, NY, you have already found it.

skeaneateles lake, Skaneateles Lake, either way

An MSN seacher was looking for a Vacation Rental on SkEAneateles Lake lat night and found us, SkANeateles Suites. We welcome you, Mr. MSN Searcher. But be prepared, at population 5,000, you probably have that many living on your block.

Here is an interesting article for those of you who care about toilet testing.

Cornell Cooperative Extention says: 

Residential development accounts for only 5-6% of the land use in the watershed. Many homes on the southern end of the lake hug the base of steep cliffs. (more…)

skanatales, maybe Skaneateles, NY in 1799 

A web surfer in Arizona found us after searching Yahoo for ‘skanatales’ and looked around for about 15 minutes. We hope they found what they wanted.

Meanwhile, a long time ago a young girl was born in Skanateles, NY. She moved to Ohio and lived a long life.
