Rustic Elegance!

Imagine a vacation in the wilderness on one of America's most exclusive lakes -- the resting spots for Presidents, movie stars and professional athletes.

Enjoy a stay in a brand new log home elegantly appointed in the midst of nature on 200 feet of private lake frontage.

Relax on the covered porches among the deer and turkey while waiting to go fishing, boating or swimming on one of the world's most pristine waters.

Escape from the hot, humid summer air while refreshing yourself with the shaded lake breezes or choose to enjoy the sunshine on the lakefront.

Pamper yourself with the luxuries of a home theater, fitness gym and internet service or catch up on some reading in front of the stone fireplace -- not your 'typical' cottage rental.

Explore the Village of Skaneateles' unique shops, boutiques and world class restaurants.

Take the 5/20 drive while exploring the wine country, rolling hills and the Finger Lakes Region of beautiful Upstate New York.

Rejuvenate Your Soul ... during your stay at Paul's Cabin on Skaneateles Lake, NY.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a wonderful experience! My husband booked this for our 2nd wedding anniversary. What a trreat!

We loved how this cabin brought luxury to the woods with the outdoor TV and hot tub. This was a trip to remember! We hope to come back and stay again one day, maybe in the summer so we can enjoy swimming in the lake. Thanks again for a wonderful stay.

Luxury Log Cabin in the Woods on Skaneateles Lake

My husband and I came to Skanteatles for his cousins October wedding at the Mandana Barn. We came in a few days early to celebrate our 5 year anniversary kid free - IT WAS INCREDIBLE. We loved every second, detail and can't wait to come back. The cabin was very roomy and clean. The views were gorgeous. Great place to visit with a large group. An SUV / 4 wheel drive is definitely needed. We loved walking and driving on the road. We kayaked on the lake - which was crystal clear! Enjoyed the hot tub in the crisp cool air. I highly recommend a fall trip to the cabin - to enjoy the beautiful leaves. We visited a winery on the lake and the town was very cute! Highly recommend! We cannot wait to come back.

Three classmates of architecture graduates of 1957 with spouses had a magnificent and memorable holiday in the beautifully designed and furnished log house cabin with serene view of the lake.

Fun, Relaxing, and Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

If you have never vacationed somewhere and felt that you were at your home away from home, then you need to come to Paul's Cabin! Paul's Cabin deliveries on so many levels. Right as you walk in the door you are greeted with a tray of goodies that include playing cards, the ingredients to make smores, and a book that includes tons of ideas for fun activities and restaurants. All of the exposed wood beams look amazing, truly a log cabin! The Three tiered deck on the cabin is stunning, the top deck is lined with rocking chairs and the lower deck has a campfire. With no TV you and your family can bond around the campfire that is built into the lower deck. You genuinely feel like you are out in the woods camping, but with all the amenities and great views!

Car: necessary

Experience nature's solitude thru miles of seasonal roads around gorges, streams and oak forests.

Boat, swim, fish, water ski or jet ski on Skaneateles spring fed glacier etched lake. Limestone floor means no mud or gunk -- one of the most beautiful lakes in the world.

Bicycle along East Lake road past farms, elegant estates and vineyards.

Take a 20 minute boat ride from our cabin to downtown Skaneateles, buy some ice cream and eat it in the Village Gazebo. Life is good.

We love the outdoors, but we're really not the 'camping' types. In the summer of 2003, we found this beautiful piece of property and decided to build an elegant cabin where we could enjoy nature graciously. Our image was to put a quality place in the midst of nature where privacy, beauty and serenity could be appreciated.

We like to call it ... Rustic Elegance.
