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 Cayuga Lake

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!

our family had an exceptional celebration of Canadian Thanksgiving at Cayuga Cabins.

  • 5 of 5

The accomodations were perfect for gathering as a group (there were 12 of us)as well as for enjoying private moments with spouses, children, or grandchildren. The location allowed for quiet time in a kayak or on one of the many decks, or enjoying the wineries and the endless activities in the nearby town of Ithaca. We highly recommend these extraordinary cabins for an exceptional family vacation

Incredible cabins for a Finger Lakes getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is an incredible property. It is situated right on the lake, with an amazing dock, and a wraparound porch with beautiful views. The house has tons of great little amenities, including a fire pit, a grill, a game room featuring a pool table and dartboard, a spacious kitchen with modern appliances, and several large televisions. The location is perfect - close to the gorgeous Watkins Glen State Park, several great wineries, and the city of Ithaca. 5 star experience and amazing for groups.

Absolutely amazing place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented this property two years in a row for our annual family trip!!!! The kitchen is huge and perfect for cooking for large groups. The amazing dinning room table fits everyone! The guest house is perfect if you need a quieter place for younger kids. A fire pit, huge front porch, pool table, darts and kayaks provided entertainment and gathering spots for everyone! It's a perfect location if you like to ride bikes and its convenient to get to Aurora and Ithaca! We've made it our home away from home for one week every year! The owner, Steve is great!!!! He responds quickly to any questions. We never had any issues but I imagine he'd rectify those just as quick!!! Our family definitely gives this rental five stars!!!!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

A mom, 4 sons, 4 daughters in law, 5 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren celebrated our mom's 90th birthday at Cayuga Cabins. My mom's comments says it all: "I wish I could stay here for a year."

The cabins were everything we wanted and more. Thanks to Steve and his staff for making our mom's birthday on Cayuga Lake a memory we will never forget!

A peaceful oasis

  • 5 of 5

Cayuga Cabins was a wonderful place for a peaceful vacation in the Finger Lakes. We immensely enjoyed the property and the well-stocked homes. There is lots of room for company. The yard and the view are great! There is so much to enjoy around Cayuga lake. We used the kayaks and rented a boat which we were able to dock at the cabins. We also went paddle boarding at a nearby state park. The owner and property manager were very attentive and responsive to any requests. The kitchen was very easy to work in and the dining table was great for family dinners. It was especially nice to be able to bring our dogs on the trip, who really enjoyed the yard. All in all, a great vacation!

Excellent stay...perfect setup for large families

  • 5 of 5

Everything was very easy to handle, from the initial reservation to the last day of the stay. In today's busy world we wanted a great place to stay while not having to put a lot of effort in preparing for the stay. And our stay was effortless done, when we showed up it was extremely clean, well stocked with the essentials, and ready for real living and enjoyment for the week.

Steve (the owner) was very welcoming and very easy to work with. Although we have never met Steve, but my brothers and I felt like we have known him for years.

We did find the place very relaxing, from the nightly bonfires, to the very comfortable deck down by the waterfront, overlooking the lake frontage/beach and dock area.

The inside of the two cottages was great too, plenty of space for our sizeable group.

The kayaks came in real handy also, there are a number of them, along with life jackets and paddles - we had a blast using those items.

The large dinning room table was also great for a group our size, a lot of meals were prepared in the large adjoining well equipped kitchen and eaten at that table, a great gathering place.

And we held cookouts outside, using the gas grill and eating at the multiple number of tables on the large wrap around deck.

All and all, a super week at this property......we would definitely recommend this property to others, and are planning a revisit ourselves for either next year or the following year....
