About Aurora or Fred:
Our family includes Cooper and Gus, our standard poodles who didn't make it into the photo but are very much part of the family. Aurora owns a day spa, Fred is the CEO for a behavioral health company, and son Cody lives in Canton, Baltimore.
Living on the Chesapeake Bay for the past 26 years we thrive on the unique beauty of America's waterways and waterfront living.
Considering retirement we knew wanted a place that feels like home. Not only is it a stunning area but the within a days drive you can visit any of the Finger Lakes, the Thousand Islands, Niagara Falls, Vermont & Montreal, Toronto !
Come share our dream !! It will be a memory to treasure.
Aurora or Fred purchased this House in 2007
Why Aurora or Fred chose North Rose, NY:
We have been coming to Sodus Bay for over 20 years. Reuniting with family and bringing in-laws and friends, we get to share our love for the perfect place to go back in time. The towns, the beach, the neighbors and even the weather seem to be the way I remember it from childhood. That is, a slower pace where the person behind the cash register stops to chat; real peace and quiet with thousands of stars; no need to lock the doors; warm sunny days with low humidity; wildflowers bursting with color by the side of the road...Of course, there's endless water from the Bay to Lake Ontario to the Finger Lakes and the Erie Canal.
What makes this House unique
Having a spectacular view of Sodus Bay from sunrise to moonrise is unbelievably joyful. You know you're in the right place and it's always the right time. Of course, our company often likes to fish off our dock which means dinner is super fresh. Just a short way around the Bay we find the best homemade fruit pies we've ever eaten. My cousins can be found at the Sodus Golf Club-gorgeous rolling green acres, while my son joins the poker games there twice a week. The younger set is happy at the miniature golf course and we're all up for one of the local ice cream spots. Superlatives abound!
It was okay. I would have rather been able to contact the owner before I rented as I used to be able to with VRBO. That us why I would use it rather than other rental services.

Guests and owners have one another's contact info as soon as you request a booking. That goes directly to the host without any payment from the guest. We've hosted through VRBO for 11 years and the 2 parties only get contact info after booking with payment through the VRBO website is made. (This has changed in the last few years) They also charge the guests a processing fee that averages $200/wk rental. Since the host has paid as well, the guest is much better off with NYRBO.
If you have specific recommendations to make our home more comfortable for travelers such as yourself, we would
appreciate your response! We may not be able to please everyone but we sure try!
Thanks for your feedback.

We can not say enough good things about this property. Last minute vacation plans and so thankful the owners are dog friendly. The house was very accommodating with loads of amenities. Beautiful view and great location. We did a day trip to Niagara Falls, hiking at Chimney Bluffs State Park (beautiful), wineries, Sodus Bay Beach and the list goes on. Great restaurants in the waterfront town too! The owners were very responsive to our needs and any questions were answered immediately. They went the extra mile to make sure our stay was as wonderful as possible.

Thank you for sharing your fun outdoor adventures. Yes, there's ice cream around every corner and we over indulge when we're there too! So happy you appreciated our home and location as we do.
So, see you next year!!!
All the Best,
My family had a wonderful time and plan to rent this cottage again in 2019, but for a longer time frame to better enjoy the accommodations.
Stayed July, 2018
We look forward to you spending another vacation in our home.
Since we received a 4/5 review from you we always appreciate knowing why.
If there's was anything lacking that we could improve upon we welcome your recommendations.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Sodus Bay property. It was very private and the location ideal for us to walk to Alasa, Third Creek and the old summer cottage. Can't wait to return next summer!
To answer your question, we have not received our security deposit as of yet. Will confirm receiving it when we do.

Thank you for your thoughtful observations. It's so kind to share your experience with others. We look forward to your coming stay.

This was our family's 4th year at the cottage. The new rugs were nice. It didn't disappoint. The cottage was private, open and spacious, relaxing, clean and allowed us all to have a great week at the lake. Even with all the rain the dock was useable- thank you!!! We will be back!!
Stayed July, 2017
Oh there is nothing that compares to hearing that you appreciate what we love about our home. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others. It's always taken seriously coming from a repeat guest. We'll be delighted to have your family again soon.
All the best
This was our third year renting this beautiful house. We love the open floor plan and kitchen that allows us to cook amazing dinners while being together as a family. The deck is large and private and the views of the lake are great. There's nothing like a cup of coffee on the deck in the morning looking at the lake that looks like glass. This year we saw a bald eagle fly by almost everyday. Our children love the open space in the house and on the deck. And having the dock to rent a boat is key. Thank you again for a great vacation!!! We will be back!
Stayed July, 2016
It is so gracious of you to share your enjoyment of our home with others. Everyone reads reviews these days and you are expressing precisely what we tell anyone about our experience of being there. A little bit of heaven.
You are welcome-and it makes us very happy to know that it's worthwhile to provide the best vacation we can.
Thank you thank you thank you
