Owner Clark Maher is a firm believer that change is progress and progress is good. Having spent the past 35 years living in NYC and designing in the fashion industry, his journey has now landed him in Skaneateles, where he’s launching the next chapter of his life as owner/ operator of 2W Lake B&B (formerly Lady of the Lake).
Originally from Ticonderoga, NY, Clark grew up in a “guests welcomed” environment with a similar small family business in the hotel lodging industry. As a child, he worked alongside his family learning the importance of providing guests with a memorable experience of quality and high standards. His mom, Mary Jane, always stressed, “make sure the customers leave happy, and they’ll return again.”
In November of 2019, Clark took ownership of “Lady of the Lake,” and the rebranding into “2W Lake” began. Many layers of wallpaper have been removed to reveal the natural, architectural beauty of the home, making the focus the fantastic windows and stunning lake views. The rooms have been refurbished with comfortable club-style chairs while keeping some turn-of-the-century period pieces that pay homage to the home’s past.
