Directions to Our Bed and Breakfast Near Skaneateles, NY

When planning your Upstate New York getaway to A Wicher Garden Bed & Breakfast, there are a variety of scenic routes and interesting sites you might enjoy in the Auburn area.

Route 5 and 20 passes along the northern end of the Finger Lakes through many distinct villages and cities with shopping and antiquing.  State Routes 90 and 89 encircling Cayuga Lake just to our west is a designated scenic byway with nearly twenty wineries, Amish shopping and the exciting City of Ithaca at its southern end.

From the East, State Route 20 is a relaxing drive of rolling hills through the quaint village of Cazenovia, apple valley near Lafayette, cozy small towns, and the beautiful historic Village of Skaneateles.  The eastern side of Skaneateles Lake, Route 41 from Cortland into Skaneateles, has gorgeous scenic views overlooking the lake as well as a scenic photo stop along the way.

If coming from our southwest (Western or Central PA for instance) and you have time, a stop in Corning to visit the Corning Glass Museum is a must-see, and Keuka Lake with its rolling hillsides of grapevines is breathtaking.  Make sure to take "the roads less traveled" in the Finger Lakes for discoveries galore!
