THE MAIN HOUSE
The main house is a traditional log cabin with 4 bedrooms. In the great room, you'll be greeted by Wally the Moose who keeps watch from his perch above the fireplace (he's always a hit with kids). The main floor has 2 bedrooms - the master suite (fully renovated in 2013) and a guest room with a queen bed. The kitchen (renovated in 2014) is built for a crowd with ample cupboard and prep space, a large refrigerator, and a 48 inch Viking range with double ovens. Upstairs you'll find a cozy sleeping space with 2 twin beds. The basement is split into 2 rooms - one holds 2 more twin beds with an attached full bath, and the other is the Big Red Room, our Cornell-themed game room with a pool table and dartboard.
THE GUEST HOUSE
The guest house is perfect for kids or a family unit. Bedroom 1 holds 3 twin beds (1 bunk, 1 single), and bedroom 2 holds a queen bed. The den has seating for the crew, plus a full bathroom.
AROUND THE PROPERTY
You'll have lots of space for your outdoor enjoyment. We have a Weber barbecue grill on the back porch of the main house, plus outdoor picnic tables. In the yard you'll find a beautiful firepit with outdoor seating. The yard is large and gives you plenty of room for playing catch, kicking a soccer ball, or practicing some chip shots.
To get down to the waterfront, you'll cross the railroad tracks that go along the east side of the lake. This is an active railroad, however, seeing trains is quite rare, and when you do, they are very slow and very loud. The few guests we've had who have seen them thought it added even more charm to their vacation.
From there you'll head down a set of steps to the landing, our large deck atop the boat house with lots of seats and a gazebo for shade. One more level of stairs takes you to the beach, where you'll find 4 kayaks for your enjoyment, a dock with boat hoist, and a perfect swimming cove that gently slopes into the water.
IN THE AREA
Lansing is in the heart of the Finger Lakes. We are approximately 20 minutes from Ithaca, 1 hour from Syracuse, and 4 hours from NYC. In our area you'll find restaurants, shopping, golf, wineries, hiking, state parks, and more.

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!

Great for large groups!
We stayed there for a long weekend with 3 fams that included 7 kids...the cabins are excellent and everyone had a comfy bed and a great time, Steve is a great and very accommodating host. Highly recommend.
We came to the cabin in early July 2017 to celebrate our fathers 70th birthday. Everyone loved it. 17 of us ranging 3 to 70. The accommodations were just right. Whether it was cooking breakfast, lounging on the deck, enjoying several family dinners, marshmallows by the fire pit, or canoeing on the lake. Everyone felt like it was just right. Steve the owner is an awesome host was very insightful and was quick to help answer any questions we had. Frank the property manager was awesome too working around our schedules to perform maintenance around the property.
Definitely we would come back.
Thank you for a great stay.
Thank you so much! It was great to have you and we look forward to your return visit!
What a beautiful home and amazing views. The property is perfect! Sitting on the pavilion by the water was breathtaking. We enjoyed everything about this house. It was very well kept and very clean. Not a single complaint. They have everything you could need for an amazing getaway!
Thank you Kelly! Come back and enjoy the cabins again soon!
Great Family Reunion
Our family recently spent a week at the Cayuga Cabins and had a great experience. We are a large family group and with a wide range of ages -from 7 to 87! The property was perfect for our needs, plenty of outdoor spaces and room to spread out. We loved all of the outdoor porch and deck space for sitting and gazing at the beautiful lake. The interiors are nicely decorated and well kept up. Steve was wonderfully accomodating and responded quickly to all of my questions in the planning stages. I highly recommend this property, thanks for a memorable experience!
Thank you for your kind words, and looking forward to having you back! - Steve
Had a great family reunion at the lake. Unfortunately it rained most of the week. When the sun came out I think we enjoyed the dock, kayaks ,fire pit and sunsets even more.
We had a small leak one day and it was taken care of promptly, and we were given some local beer and wine for our inconvenience.
The kitchen was very well equipped to cook for a crowd.
Would recommend this property to any big group.
Thanks Heidi! Glad you enjoyed the property, and we look forward to welcoming you back!
Heaven on the lake!
What a great house! Our family has used vacation rentals for several years...but none can compare with this log cabin! Steve was so considerate and checking to see if we needed anything. Beds are comfortable, kitchen is amazing, nice size for our group of 13! Nice beach area for the little ones to play, fishermen were happy, and the kayaks were great for all ages! Don't miss this log cabin experience!!!
Thank you, we are flattered and absolutely thrilled you enjoyed your visit so much!
