5 Star Rating

We reserved CLC’s bus to do a brewery tour of Seneca Lake. Cheryl and Jim could not have been more gracious or enjoyable to work with. Cheryl was excited to set up the trip and made it easy to do so; she even called the day before to confirm. Jim drove and was easygoing, happy, and offered great tips throughout the entire trip. They even stored snacks for us in case we got hungry. And the trip was a bargain! The bus was immaculate. If we ever do something like this again, there is no question we would go with CLC tours.

A Perfect Getaway Weekend

“5 Stars”

My Husband and I stayed here for 2 nights to celebrate my birthday and have a kid-free getaway…it was perfect!!! Jim and Cheryl are the nicest people and greeted us with such a warm welcome when we arrived. This was our first time to Cayuga Lake and Cheryl was super helpful in recommending things to do and places to eat prior to our arrival.

The cabin is amazing, they have built a beautiful little piece of heaven!! It is very comfortable and well appointed with anything you could need. The Kitchen is well stocked with cook wear, bakeware, grilling supplies, serving wear and utensils. Our favorite part of the cabin was the outdoor fire pit, which we sat around every night having a nice time with our cabin neighbors. It’s a great set-up with lots of chairs and they provide firewood.

Cheryl and Jim also have a transportation company called CLC Tours and the highlight of our trip was a winery tour led by Jim. He put together an itinerary that was fantastic!! We went to 5 wineries, stopped off at Busy Bee for Lunch and even got to see the waterfall at Taughannock Falls State Park, which was breathtaking. They also offer light snacks and water on the van which is a nice touch!

On our last morning we finally got to take advantage of the lake and took the Kayaks out for a spin. It is a steep walk down to the lake but I didn’t find it to be an issue, it helped me to burn off the S’mores from the night before 🙂 The area they have down by the lake is really nice with a covered pavilion that had tables and chairs and a nice dock that goes out to the water. It truly is such a beautiful view!

We had such a wonderful time at Cayuga Lake Cabins and my only complaint is that we didn’t have more time to stay! We look forward to coming back to enjoy this little piece of heaven. Many thanks again Jim and Cheryl, we look forward to seeing you soon!!

I am so happy we decided to go with your touring van.

Jim and Cheryl,

I just want to express my thanks for the GREAT service that you provided my friends and family when we went on a Wine Trail Tour with you! Everything in the van was clean and neat.  Jim was our driver and Cheryl was our navigator! Both of you are such wonderful, polite, articulate and responsible owners!  I am so happy we decided to go with your touring van.  It was just a wonderful experience. Everything was timely, well organized and run so efficiently.  We were so pleased with our trip that we will probably book another trip in the near future! Again, my thanks for doing such a great job with our tour.  Sincerely,
Rebecca (Tour Date 2/18/17)

Thank you so much for a wonderful day.

I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed the tour. I wanted to give my dear old friends a great experience, and they certainly had one! Jim is so friendly and knowledgeable that we felt as if we had a friend driving us around, not a stranger. And the lunch recommendation was perfect! Thank you so much for a wonderful day.

Kathi (Tour date 5/8/17).

Beautiful cabin great location

The accommodations here are outstanding with everything you may need for your stay. Fully equipped kitchen and every amenity needed is supplied. It is private, clean and inviting. I can’t say enough about Jim and Cheryl, they are truly caring and loving people that made us feel like family. We wish that we didn’t have to leave but we definitely will be returning with our dogs as they are very pet friendly.
Thank you Jim and Cheryl

We love walking in this peaceful preserve, located just ½ mile north of Cayuga Lake cabins and our home. Our cabin guests love it too, and it’s a great place for dog walking too. Dogs go crazy with discovering all the new sights and smells!

VanRiper Conservation Area

On the west side of Cayuga Lake, in the town of Romulus, lie these magnificent natural areas that together comprise approximately 1,900 feet of peaceful lakeshore, woods, and gullies.  A parking area on Route 89, located just ½ mile north of Cayuga Lake Cabins, connects to a footpath providing easy access to the lake, especially nice for people wanting to launch a canoe or kayak.  A lovely trail through the woods provides an opportunity for an easy loop hike.  Stand along the water’s edge at this wide part of Cayuga Lake, and you are likely to see interesting water birds, boats, and the quaint hamlet of Aurora on the far shore.

Escape, Enjoy, Relax, Unwind ….Log Cabins are the key to a treasure chest of meaningful memories.

trees-viewThe log cabin is a unique American dwelling – it claims appeal as a basic form of shelter and also a creator of memories, good times, laughter shared among friends and family. Intimate and simple, the Log Cabin is a trusted American icon. Cayuga Lake Cabins invites you to enjoy our unique form of retreat – whether for a romantic couple’s getaway, a family reunion, a birthday celebration for friends, a writers’ retreat, or any occasion, elaborate or simple.

geese-over-lakeIn 2014 Jim and Cheryl Santos envisioned a place for quiet respite and celebration of this beautiful area of the country, and we began the construction of cabins that we ourselves wanted to retreat to. Our goal that we carried out was to develop wonderful inviting cabins that provide all the amenities and comforts of home, spaciousness, coziness, and the feeling of really getting away from it all.
