I grew up in the Finger Lakes, and graduated from Cornell University in 2001. This is one of the most beautiful areas in the country, and I purchased this property so that I could have a wonderful second home for my family and an exciting side business providing a fun and luxurious retreat for visitors to the region.

Steve Engelbrecht purchased this cabin in 2011

We looked at many houses in the area when we decided to buy a vacation home. This property stood head and shoulders above the rest - even before we got inside! The views, and the rare combination of privacy and accessibility is simply unmatched in this price range. We had a vision for how to update and decorate the houses, and we saw that vision through completion in 2012.

This property is full of fun places to explore and relax, whether alone or with your group. Join your party at the outdoor firepit or on the landing, overlooking the beach. Or, cuddle up in the great room with a great book, or take a nap on the hammock. The lake is a wonderfully serene setting for total relaxation!

Incredibly charming vacation rental

We had a fantastic time at the Cayuga Cabins over the Thanksgiving weekend. As a group of Australians who don't know the area, this was the perfect place to escape from New York and spend 4 nights. The cabins had everything you needed, it was clean and tidy and the owner Steve was at hand if we had any questions. After a night of snow it was absolutely perfect to lounge by the fire place under the big moose head! We had the best Thanksgiving! We hope to be back again in the future. Thanks again!

I Just spent three days at Cayuga Cabin celebrating my Sisters Birthday. What an incredibly beautiful piece of property. My sister actually picked the property because of the rustic charm. Words cannot express how beautiful this weekend was. There was plenty of space to accommodate our party of 16. All of the bedrooms were spacious, and the Master Bedroom is absolutely beautiful. The guest house was great as well. We took advantage of the deck below for evening happy hours and morning boot camp. We took the kayaks on the lake and had bon fires in the evening. This property has everything you need and more. Steve (The owner of the property) promptly returned all of my phone calls and even check on us to make sure every thing was ok. We had an opportunity to visit a couple of wineries and went to Maxies Dinner Club for oysters (located in Ithaca). Thank you Steve for sharing your property with us. I would highly recommend your property to other friends, and plan on returning in the future.

Family Getaway to Cayuga Cabins

What a wonderful place. We had 16 adults and 5 dogs. Plenty of room and great scenery. There was something for everyone, games, water, yard. Booking was easy and convenient. The owner was always helpful and we didn't need a thing. Local wine tasting was great and Ithaca Falls was beautiful. Great place for large groups. The cottages were very well maintained and clean. Thanks for a great stay.

Both the main house and guest house were well appointed with everything we could possible need. We had a large group (14) in for a wedding, so with lodging in the area being limited this place was ideal. Right on the lake, with gorgeous views; the dock was a great place to spend an afternoon, especially after some kayaking on the lake. Steve was great, and incredibly responsive when I had questions. Truly an awesome place.

What a jewel! We combined 2 families, and enjoyed the company of Cousins from Canada. In all, the cabins accommodated 14 of us comfortably. Tucked away in a secluded section of Cayuga Lake. We enjoyed swimming, and sun bathing in the lake, tubing, and Kayaking. Camp fires at night as we all sang songs, and roasted s’mores. Pool and dart tournaments anytime. The Cabins have lots of game boards, and videos to keep everyone busy. Plenty of space to cook for our party, and the sweetest (local) corn we have ever tasted, roasted on the grill. The area is charming with lots to do if you get tired of laying in the hammock or on the dock. We did the vineyard tour until we have more wine than we could drink. Lots of shopping nearby with the Ithaca Mall maybe ½ hr away. Robert H. Treman State Park is about a 40 min drive, with hiking trails, and beautiful waterfalls galore. If you prefer to dine out, there are many dining spots, we treated ourselves to a classic steakhouse dinner at John Thomas in Ithaca. Steve is a great host, he checked in with us periodically to make sure we were comfortable, and asked Frank to stop by with a fresh set of darts for our enjoyment. We would highly recommend Cayuga Cabins to any family looking to get away…..Oh, and the Moose is amazing!
