“34 state is like staying at a luxury boutique hotel. The décor is fabulous and the house has a rich and interesting history.  It’s also in the village, so no need to drive to dinner.  We can’t recommend it enough!”

Loved it! Would definitely go back!


It was serendipitous to come across 34 State! I was going to stay at the only place I knew, the Sherwood Inn, but they didn't have the rooms and nights I needed. I had booked at one Sherwood's other properties, but when I read their reviews about being outdated so-so, I knew I had to keep looking because I would be disappointed. That's when I came across 34 State on other reviews. The room was beautiful, up to date with it's charming décor, and great attention to detail. Katie was very responsive and thorough with all my questions, including booking massage and dinner recommendations, both which were right on! We had a great time, and will definitely book there the next time we are in town. First class, great value, very accommodating, and they made it so easy. Everything I was looking for, plus it was a short walk into town. Perfect. Thank you to Katie and Jack for making our stay so memorable! And, I never write reviews!


Proposal Night


34 State was a wonderful place to stay after proposing to my girlfriend. Everything was perfect, thanks for making this night so very special for us!! Great location right in the village, easy to get to all shops & restaurants.


Just what I needed and ready to go back!


I had to make a last minute trip to the area. Lucky for me...all hotels were booked and I got to stay in the Staghorn suite. Everything about it was top of the line and it felt very private (not like other bed and breakfasts I've stayed at). The suite is unique and I enjoyed having this extra space for relaxing and working. The location in Skaneateles is great for walking to the village as well. I highly recommend staying here versus getting "another hotel room". I hope to make it back to the area with family one day and know exactly where we'll be staying!


Outstanding experience at 34 State!!!


34 State is one of the best places we've ever stayed in. The accommodations and suites are just outstanding!!! The home is just spotless and so well decorated. We've stayed at a number of other places in Skaneateles but from here on, when we go back, we'll be staying at 34 State. Our thanks to Katie  for making our stay so enjoyable. Our experience was nothing but outstanding all around!


Great find in Skaneateles!


First off, 34 State is in a great location in Skaneateles. It's on a charming street and half a block to shops and restaurants. We have shied away from B&Bs in the past - lack of privacy, overly frilly decor. 34 State is not that! We booked the Staghorn Suite for a quick anniversary getaway. The suite was spacious and tastefully decorated with the amenities of a high end hotel (pressed linens, robes, chocolates). If we'd had a longer stay, the sitting room in the suite would have been a great spot to enjoy a glass of wine.

Breakfast, coffee and tea are available on your own schedule in the morning. We opted to sleep in, have coffee downstairs, and then stop for breakfast in town as we explored some of the shops...she obviously put a great deal of care into ensuring their guests have a comfortable stay. We were thrilled to have found this gem in Skaneateles and hope to return soon!


Excellent stay


I booked the room for one night even though it said it was a two night minimum stay. The owner was gracious enough due to that fact it was my birthday. My girlfriend and I absolutely loved the room and it's ambience. We would love to make it a regular stay for us when she comes in from Florida. We now consider it our place away from home.


Fantastic Experience!


My husband and I recently enjoyed a fantastic stay at the 34 State “Historic Luxury Suites”!  Our room was beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. The location was perfect, with a 5 minute walk into the village where there were many boutiques and restaurants to choose from. I would greatly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in Skaneateles!


Perfect Stay in Historical Home


From the minute you arrive you know are you are in for a wonderful stay. The home is elegant and comfortable at the same time. Katie has done a wonderful job of anticipating your needs and providing as much help as you want. We are from the south and they made sure we were never cold and gave us great tips for the town.  But the best part has to be the location and the suites. You are a block from the center of town, so unless you are venturing out you never need to use your car. Our bed was incredibly comfortable and my husband noticed the bedside fresh flowers and the lavender scented linens. We enjoyed a relaxing evening on the sofa with the TV and the view out the windows to entertain us. If you are traveling with friends you will enjoy the parlor, with fireplace, and the dining room, but our suite was spacious enough that we did not use them much. I did spend a few hours one afternoon reading in the covered porch and that was great, comfortable seating and plenty of it. Katie is a former B&B owner and manager and she has incorporated all the best practices here, not to mention she is a very talented decorator. We typically stay in B&B's or small places like this and I highly recommend 34 State for your trip to the area.


Unique attention to detail in the village center of Skaneateles!


This B and B is like no other we have ever stayed in! (actually I don't even think that the owner calls it or refers to it as a B and B) Private, luxurious, walk to all, elegant yet comfortable are just a few words to describe what a stay at 34 State is like. You not only have a private entrance for the 2 suites but you have your own sitting room and bathroom in addition to your bedroom! The suites are so spacious and richly appointed that you will not want to leave. The home combines new and old with such an eclectic feel and designer touches it is as if you are in a high end boutique hotel in a city, yet you step outside and are in a charming village of historic homes and unique shops.

34 State is ideally located only one block to all the shops and restaurants so you can park your car in the driveway and walk to everything during your stay. (which makes it especially nice to go out and enjoy a few beverages!) Upon Katie's recommendation we ate at The Krebs and had the most outstanding meal and dining experience, a must do on a visit to town. You will not be disappointed with your stay at 34 State!
