Beautiful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for the long Columbus Day weekend and we were absolutely thrilled with the accommodations! The house and surroundings were amazing! Everything was immaculate! The house is large and the furnishings are top notch. This was by far the best place my family has ever stayed! Thank you George for sharing your wonderful vacation home.

Great location, great property.... like home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a "Girls Getaway" in Fair Haven/Sterling, fortunate enough to find George's listing on VRBO. We had a wonderful time & look forward to visiting again, possibly in the Fall.

Highly recommend the property & George's hospitality ~

Thanks George!

Wonderul home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, three kids (ages 9, 8, 6), and I spent part of our spring break at West Bay Escape and we loved every minute of it. George's home is beautiful and spacious. We loved playing games and watching movies in the upper room with its great views and beautiful lighting. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to use. All of the beds were very comfortable and the bedrooms were spacious. We loved that he even provided towels for us to use. He saw us out for a walk one day and stopped to chat for a bit. Our kids had a great time playing tag outside while my husband barbecued each night. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! I would bring a couple extra hot pads for cooking and the hot water pressure was a little low. Neither of which would prevent us from recommending George's home to anyone or returning again ourselves. Thank you George for your hospitality and for going the extra mile for us after our kids left a few treasures behind!

Happily Married Here

  • 5 of 5

This was the ideal location for our wedding. The house was very clean. comfortable and accommodated our guests from the UK and USA. We loved the layout of the house with it being on two levels.. The fireplace offered both warmth and gave a soothing atmosphere. The kitchen area was a delight to use and the spacious lounge ideal for relaxing and watching TV and chatting. We were married in the Lounge on Christmas Eve 2015 and couldn't have asked for a better location. The weather was mild was mild enough for us to have photos on the beach overlooking the fabulous Lake Ontario.

George the owner was superb and made himself readily available to answer any questions during our stay.

We thoroughly recommend this property to anyone.

A wonderful vacation home, lots of great features!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation here. We had several families together, all with young kids and it was a great location. The house was really clean, everything worked and there were a ton of bonus features. We loved the pool and the poolside porch. The front patio with the grill was a really nice place to eat. The firepit was great for hanging out and making smores, there was even firewood provided. The large living room was a perfect place for everything to relax. We used the waterfront to canoe around the bay a little. Fair Haven state park was a great find, it is easy to get to and has some awesome beaches and parks. We also found a couple really neat little restaurants nearby.

Overall we had a great week. We are glad we found this place and wouldn't hesitate to visit again. Thanks George for the hospitality and service!
