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!
This is a special property in the Finger Lakes, a short drive from Ithaca. The description is accurate but a little to modest. While this cabin and guest house have rustic charm, they are beautifully decorated, nicely furnished and built for a get-away. We had a large extended family group and their was plenty of room for all. Even when the rain came, folks settled in to rockers on the covered porch.
Whether you want to kayak on the lake, sit on the deck overlooking the lake, gather round the fire pit, grill on the porch or play pool in the lower level of the main cottage, you can do it all at Cayuga Cabins. And it is all just a short drive from Cornell/Ithaca.
The owners are terrific to deal with -- they have the rental process down to a science and provided useful and helpful information as our rental time approached. My only reluctance at leaving this (well-deserved) positive review is that this property may be more difficult to book in the future!
We stayed at the cabin with our family for our marriage at the Aurora Inn. The stay could not have been more perfect. From the moose head in the living room to the carefully stacked wood near the fire pit to the lakeside view that is breathtaking, it is an all around private gem of an escape that is hard to find these days. Steve was such a wonderful host and made sure our stay was perfect from day one. The rooms are very comfortable and it was very clean. Great for large families wanting an escape that is filled with nature, gathering by the fire and making memories for a lifetime. 5 stars from start to finish!
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!
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.
What a perfect place to bring our family of 16 together! We relaxed, played, swam, fished, watched some incredible fireworks.....so many great memories! Lots of space to gather! The dining room table was awesome in that all of us could be together! We would all love to go back!
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!!!
