Overview

Lansing Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

This sweet little house has an open floor plan with a sleeping loft and beautiful views looking southwest over Cayuga Lake. Decks on two sides of the house lead to a “flight” of four decks below the house. The kitchen has a small refrigerator, induction burners, small oven, microwave, toaster, blender, coffee maker, and lots of cooking utensils and dishware. The bathroom has a claw-foot tub. On the decks, a gas grill and plenty of chairs and picnic tables for relaxing and entertaining.

Ideal for two, but can sleep four to six: queen mattress in loft, fold-out sofa bed, couch, and camping out in tents on the decks under large shade trees or on the double mattress in the boat house.

Not handicapped accessible: 28 gentle stone steps from the road down to the house, 3 to 6 steps between the decks, steep stairs down to the dock, boat house, and pebble beach, and in the house, a library ladder up to the sleeping loft.

Wifi. No smoking or incense. Pets considered.

About Nancy Lazarus

Rick and Nancy Lazarus live south of Ithaca and love Cayuga Lake and the sunsets from its east shore. This is our summer lake house, a quiet retreat.

Why Nancy Lazarus chose Cayuga Lake

The lake access and views are great, plus Bill George Road is a quiet and wooded road great for walking and bike riding. There are some houses on the lake side and a couple of small gorges. Great blue herons fly up and down the lake every day. Owls hoot at night. Rick is a timber frame barn restorer and he built this charming little house about 10 years ago.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We truly loved our stay and it reminded me so much of a family cabin we

used to enjoy. We have already thought about a return stay so don't be

suprised! Thanks again for sharing your little retreat.

This is my happy place...

  • 5 of 5

For the second year in a row we treated ourselves to a week in this cabin. I love how simple things are and how relaxing it is. Nancy makes us feel like long-time family friends. The lake is beautiful, and it is great to have kayaks right there so we don't have to haul our own. We like to use the grill and enjoy easy dinners on the deck. Ithaca is a short drive away, as are plenty of hiking opportunities and wine and cider tastings. This is the place to enjoy a rustic get away!

This was a sweet, quiet retreat. Everything you could wish for in a lakeside cabin and more!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked this cabin for a long weekend romantic getaway, and we were not disappointed! It is a beautiful, immaculate, well-appointed space to get away from it all and enjoy the lake and spectacular sunsets in peace and quiet. Every detail was perfect and Nancy (and Rick) go out their way to make you feel welcome in their slice of heaven on Cayuga Lake.

We will DEFINITELY be coming back. One of the best vacations I can remember. So incredibly relaxing!!

Perfection! Ideal cabin right on the lake

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I rented this property for a birthday celebration and Nancy was all too happy to make our stay extremely worthwhile. It was very thoughtful of her to prepare a cheesecake just for the occasion. Her cabin is very well equipped with a very homely feel that she has taken a lot of pride in maintaining and improving. The space is ideal for a couple and the loft bed gives a lot of character to the place. The outside area provides a very spacious porch and lower dining area for those warm summer nights, as well as a boat shed with plenty of swimming and kayaking equipment. We had a fantastic time there and even made us want to own a property around the area in the future. I highly recommend his cabin and Nancy's excellent hospitality.

Rustic Cabin in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for a rustic getaway or to visit local colleges. The lake was beautiful and peaceful, and the cabin had all the amenities. Cabin was clean and well maintained. The owner was very helpful and accessible. Would not recommend for people with limited mobility/agility because the loft bed is reached by a fairly steep ladder, and there are many steps down from the road and then again down to the lakefront, but was fine for our family. Good WiFi.

Amazing place for some R&R!

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for a quiet getaway. It is right on the lake and the owners were great at communicating days leading up to the trip. The views are breathtaking and the cabin is beautiful.
