About Phyllis for FAQ and other INFO

Phil and Phyllis purchased the property from a family member. Phil's dream was to build his own home on the lake in 1993. We worked together on the home while working for corporations in Rochester, NY. We've met many interesting families and enjoy sharing our lake home.

Home Away encourages reviews and we've been pleased with this option. However, we had a couple stay who submitted a review 10 months after their stay. The review was totally

INACCURATE.

It is our opinion that the persons submitting this review suffer from mental issues. If you read this negative review PLEASE CHECK PHIL's RESPONSE at the end of the review. THANK YOU.

Phyllis for FAQ and other INFO purchased this house in 1993

Why Phyllis for FAQ and other INFO chose Aurora

The property belonged to Phil's Uncle and he wanted to keep the property in the family. We are so delighted to have been able to build Sunset House for the family. We hope you enjoy your stay!

What makes this house unique

Sunset House deck is over the lake and all the rooms have views of the lake. There is a Chiminea for fires on a cool day and comfy outdoor furniture. Our lake home is tastefully decorated and family antiques add to the charm of the home..

We all had a wonderful time here! We especially loved the time we spent on the deck overlooking the lake. The lake home was cozy and inviting. Thanks again!

Great Location, Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
Home is as beautiful if not more so than pictured. Very comfortable. Located in a quiet and peaceful area. Very relaxing, yet close to many activites. Beautiful state parks, great restaurants (Pumpkin Hill Bistro was excellent) & wineries. Sunsets over the lake are spectacular. Had a lot of fun feeding the ducks who swam up to the deck. We had a great vacation!!!!

A PIECE OF HEAVEN ON THE LAKE!

This is our 3rd stay at this very cozy home with amazing views! Even when you are inside the outside comes in because of all the windows. Phyllis and Phil are so nice to deal with booking the home and if any problems arise are very attentive. We loved "Pumpkin Hill" restaurant and the farmers market in Ithaca. Can't wait til our next visit!!!

Overall, this lake house was very pleasant. The deck is beautiful and the location was convenient for us during a Wells College graduation weekend. The home was clean, well stocked and well taken care of. It has a nice kitchen and living room area. The lake views are gorgeous. The downstairs master bedroom did have a bit of a musty, dampish odor, but it wasn't too bad. It's helpful to know that this house is on a road where the homes are cheek-by-jowl close. Also, as is obvious from the photos, there is no beach. This wasn't a concern for us, but if you have little kids, it might be a problem that there isn't much outdoor play space other than swimming off the dock. I, my family and friends enjoyed the home and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to others.

Beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5
Lovely surroundings and we had a very relaxing time. We are nature lovers and especially enjoyed the nesting swallows, mergansers and even saw a couple of eagles fly by. Out on our kayak, we saw an eagle close by in a tree as well as Caspian terns on the water and a fawn on the river bank. The house is attractive and spacious and the deck is amazing! Because of it's proximity to the lake,the house does need to have marine style toilets, but they were clean and posed no problem. We did also have to use the bottled water supplied for drinking and cooking and that was not a problem either. We enjoyed kayaking and swimming right off the dock, went to wineries, Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge and other attractions and had a great time.

Charming lake house with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5
We (two couples) vacationed at Sunset House for a week in the fall. The house is both spacious and inviting. Everything was exactly as described in the listing (you are required to bring a few things, like linens, so read carefully). The house was clean and ready for our arrival, and Phil was a wonderful host. The views from inside the house and from the deck were amazing. It was even rainy a few days during our stay, and we still loved the views!

We visited several of the wineries on Cayuga and Seneca Lakes, spent some time in Ithaca, and visited an antique shop in Aurora. We especially enjoyed our mornings and evenings on the deck. It is the perfect spot for bird watching and breathtaking sunsets! Pumpkin Hill Bistro is a must visit (we enjoyed a delightful lunch there), and Fargo Bar in Aurora is a great place for burgers.

All in all, we loved our week at Sunset House. It was a great place to relax, recharge, and spend time with friends. We all hope we get the chance to return very soon!
