About Steve Engelbrecht

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

Why Steve Engelbrecht chose Lansing

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of family and friends couldn't have asked for a better place to gather. The cabins had plenty of space and were well equipped and comfortable. We had loads of things to do right on the property and spent much of our time on the dock, fishing, kayaking, swimming, and reading. Steve is a fine host and makes sure his guests are happy. And happy we were!

Perfect vacation.

  • 5 of 5
Main log cabin is beautifully decorated like a log cabin should be, moose head, lanterns, rustic furniture but sooo comfortable. Enormous table fit all 12 of us. Kitchen well stocked, coffee pot and kcup! Lots of outdoor seating, fire pit and grill. Guest house simpler but comfortable for our grown daughters, 17-20 (4). Owner is terrific and quick to respond. If have elderly or real young, the water is many steps down, across railroad tracks (a train came by) and, therefore, the return trip back to the house can be a bit strenuous. Nice canopied landing to sit under that overlooks the lake. We hiked many gorges, ate and laughed all together as a family being so close in proximity on one property. Private. Lovely, spacious and comfortable.Many Thanks. Great vacation.

WOW!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this lovely cabin to attend graduation week at Cornell University. We were thrilled when we arrived. The property is lovely. The cabin is a perfect mix of rustic and luxury. The property manager was very attentive and we had everything we needed. Although we were in and out all week attending college events, we could have stayed all week and never left - everything you need for a great family vacation is there - water, dock, fishing, kayaks, fire pit, pool table, cable tv, comfortable furnishings and heating and cooling that works wonderfully. A perfect place for extended family to gather or a group of friends - room & fun for all! Thanks you Steve!!!

This is a lovely spot.We were a family group of 15 and both houses held us nicely. The lake views and sunsets were just beautiful and the house comfortable and well maintained. Would definitely return and recommend to others!

Incredibly charming vacation rental

  • 5 of 5
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!
