Finger Lakes Vacation: Day 4
A little after 10:00 am on Saturday (May 27) we left our Airbnb to make a drive around Skaneateles Lake, the next Finger Lake to the east of Owasco Lake. It was raining, when we left. The rain stayed with us all the way around the lake. I didn’t take any photographs, during this ride around the lake.
We ate lunch at Prison City Pub & Brewery on State Street in Auburn. Bob ordered a Salmon BLT (Seared salmon fillet, lettuce, bacon, tomato, caper dill mayo, NY bakery roll) with a side salad. I ordered a Pub Burger (local grass-fed beef, caramelized onions, cheddar, house pickles, chipotle mayo, brioche roll) with a side salad.
It stopped raining, while we were eating lunch, so we decided to take another drive around Skaneateles Lake. The rain did not return, and the sky cleared up.
We stopped briefly in the Town of Skaneateles at the north end of Skaneateles Lake.
From Skaneateles we drove south along the eastern side of Skaneateles Lake.
We turned around at the overlook and took Vincent Hill Road to the southern end of Skaneateles Lake via E. Lake Road and Glen Haven Road.
We continued our drive north along the western side of Skaneateles Lake.
We stopped briefly at the ruins of New Hope Mills, located near the intersection of Glen Haven Road and Route 41a.
I will say more about New Hope Mills in a later post.
On our way back to our Airbnb we stopped at Tom Thumb Drive Inn for dessert. We enjoyed ice cream, with a view of Owasco Lake.

What a lovely area. Thayer Park looks very picturesque with its pier and path along the lake. It sounds like a very enjoyable day – in spite of some rain. Looking forward to your next post about New Hope Mills.
Pretty views of the lake, pier and the park I am glad the rain stopped for your outing. Take care, enjoy your day!
A beautiful area Linda, great photos!
