About Shawn Skeele
The land this house resides was my grandfather's 100 acre lot bought in the late 1930's and put in a family trust for future generations. With God's hand of provision, I moved my family back to the lake to raise buying 6 acres overlooking the lake. My older brother and I built this log home in 2002 with our own sweat, blood, care, pride and a sore thumb at times.
My wife and I homeschool our kids. I'm part owner of the family insurance agency established by my grandfather in 1957 being a 3rd generation owner desiring to carry on his multi-generational vision.
Shawn Skeele purchased this house in 2002
Why Shawn Skeele chose Cazenovia
This Post & Beam Cedar Log Home speaks for itself. It's private, isolated, custom made with a layout that is open and spacious being ideal for family reunions or retreats. For me, it's like coming home to a vacation property everyday. The view of God's creation and animals standing anywhere in the house is breath taking. Deer, foxes, rabbits, turkeys, ducks, eagles, hawks or chickens, you never know what you're going to wake up to. We have awesome sunsets as we relax from the day's events giving thanks reflecting at the wonder and beauty around us.
You have a great variety of activities with family and friends. Enjoy the lakefront swimming, fishing, kayaking, canoeing and enjoying the lake scenery. Up at the house, have a big bonfire, grill some steak, rest in the hammock, play horseshoes, roast some smores, tell stories and jokes or just enjoy the scenery.
Inside, play some pool, while watching a game, use the exercise equipment, nap, enjoy the open spacious rooms and deck. Oh, and enjoy the scenery overlooking the lake.
We have a beautiful playroom for the kids, barbie house, penned up ducks-chickens-rabbits-geese to view, play swing set, sandbox, games galore and wifi.
All this is just at the house. Syracuse, Cortland and Oneida are just 1/2 hour away. Ski resorts, golf courses, state forests with trails for hiking, biking and skiing, elegant restaurants 12 minutes away, true Italian pizza in 5 minutes and freshly made bread every day at the bottom of the hill by our neighbors.
If the moon is almost full with no clouds, you can turn off the house lights and watch the show outside with glowing bugs and insects being scooped up by a couple bats feasting at the evenings smorgasbord of delights.
During the winter, our 800 ft driveway is the best sledding path in all central NY!
All four seasons provide refreshing perspectives about this creation made just for us. We look forward to sharing it with you for a spell.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The owner was very accomodating and gracious. Everything advertised on the homeaway.com website was true. He even had roasting sticks, marshmellows, chocolate and graham crackers for us with a fire in the fireplace when arriving. The cedar log home is just breath taking along with the view no matter where you are in the home looking out over the lake.
This is a wonderful family who uses the rental funds to pay for homeschooling their kids. We're glad to support them in their overwhelming endeavor.
We have an event every year locally and will certainly be returning next year.
