Bill Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States, his wife, former senator, United States Secretary of State, and first lady, Hillary Rodham Clinton, who was the Democratic nominee for President of the United States in 2016, have vacationed at a home that is now being put on the market at an auction on October 25.
The couple, along with their daughter Chelsea Clinton, vacationed at the lake house estate, located in Skaneateles, New York, several times in the late 1990s and early 2000s. It has served as a vacation hotspot for other famous families, too, such as the Baldwin family.

While the estate includes three structures, the main house, a separate guest or caretaker’s quarters, and a waterside boathouse, the total square feet of the living space measure 15,600 and features a whopping ten bedrooms, eleven bathrooms, and several fireplaces.
The lakeside home is made of natural stone and features gorgeous views of the lake, and beautiful views of Skaneateles Lake. Drive-in boat lifts, a paved boat launch, plenty of decking, and paved entertainment makes this estate very inviting. The luxury of it being situated right on the water with a gorgeous swimming pool and relaxing Jacuzzi is the icing on the cake.
Nestled among trees on lush, green land, the home was constructed by real estate developer Tom McDonald and his wife, Cathy McDonald, in 1987. Tom also worked in asset management and non-profit capacity building, primarily for affordable housing developments, and raised their children at the estate that was used as their main home.
Now empty-nesters, the couple is splitting their time between their homes in Manhattan and Florida, and no longer need the large property that is situated on 4.5 acres of beautiful and with 370 feet of shoreline.
This gorgeous home and the surrounding buildings, pool, and property can be used as the main home for year-round living or as a prime vacation hot-spot for fun in the sun or just simply relaxation. The area of Skaneateles Lake and the village of Skaneateles offers many fun activities for individuals and families, including boating, fishing, swimming, sailing, jet-skiing, and even parasailing.
Avid hunters can even head over to Bear Swamp Creek and if you are a cyclist or runner, there is 32-mile biking or jogging path around the lake. Quaint little shops and eateries line the streets of the village that is host to an annual summer boat show and several festivals from Thanksgiving through Christmas.
