About The Packwood House

The Packwood House is located in the center of the quaint historic village of Skaneateles on the north shore of Skaneateles Lake, the easternmost of the Finger Lakes. Built in 2003 on the site of the old Skaneateles Post Office, Packwood House was named after John Packwood (1824-1890). John Packwood was a highly successful carriage maker in Skaneateles and one of the early owners of the Sherwood Inn – which he had renamed Packwood House in the late 1800's.

Today's Packwood House (located a half block away from the Sherwood Inn) is a contemporary lakeside retreat which offers 19 comfortable guest suites, many of which provide picturesque views of the lake and the village. Each guest suite has a kitchenette with a microwave and refrigerator as well as a comfortable sitting area and work space; several feature oversized balconies where guests may sit back and enjoy the view from a unique perspective. The hotel is a perfect combination of contemporary design, modern convenience, and old-fashioned hospitality.
