- We expect that the home is left in the same condition it was when you arrived
I really enjoyed the beauty and peacefulness of the finger lakes area. This house had everything, including a sublime water view.
We enjoyed our time on Cayuga Lake. The house was perfect and the owners were friendly and available for anything. We would love to return.
Very pleased with our stay and the property. Will come back again. A minor issue with the heat was very promptly resolved.
Great rooms, plenty of space for a friends weekend close to home but not (too) close. Hot tub a HUGE plus on the cold nights! Property owners were very sweet and quick to answer questions! 10/10 would visit again!
We had a blast staying here. Awesome accommodations and great owners!
Beautiful view will be staying again next time in town hot tub was nice at the end of the day
Thank you so very much for a wonderful weekend. My sisters & I enjoyed ourselves very much. The house was cozy & comfortable & the view was spectacular! Everything was perfect. All the little touches made it so much more inviting. Also thank you very much for the bottle of wine. My sisters really enjoyed that. The hot tub was very enjoyable also! Thanks again for a great weekend! Theresa & Family
We spent a long weekend here and had a great time. The location is beautiful, right on the lake, with a gorgeous view of the sunset. We visited several wineries over the time we were here, and our favorite was Long Point, which is less than 5 minutes away.
We spent 3 nights on a getaway to the lake and couldn’t have been happier with the rental. The kids enjoyed fishing and the hot tub as well as their own space and bathroom upstairs. Everything was just as advertised I just wish we could have spent more time there. Would definitely recommend this listing!
3 families merged with a hodgepodge of ages, something for everyone. Well stocked Kitchen supplies. Already booked it for next year :)
The property is perfect for a family get away. In nice condition, clean and right on the lake! My nephew loved the kayaking! Us adults loved the views from the deck. Highly recommend it!
Owners were lovely, cottage seems older than pics appear
Had a great week of vacation staying at Sunset Paradise! The sunsets were amazing every night, house had plenty of room for our group of 6. We loved swimming, snorkeling, floating in the crystal clear waters of Cayuga lake. Loved fishing off the dock and off our boat. The boat lift was a big plus. Hot tub and hammock were very relaxing. The owners are very nice and helpful.
Everything about this vacation home is PERFECT; location, amenities, views, communication with owners.
Well kept with many convenient features and amenities - exactly as described in profile. The dock is in great condition, and the area is nice to swim (rocky bottom, not sandy). Fishing from the dock was fun for kids. Kayaks are provided, which is very nice, and the cottage was well-stocked and meticulously maintained. Responsive property owner. The access road is a little awkward to get down. Parking was easy.
This was our first time renting through vrbo and our first time at the Finger Lakes. We had an EXCELLENT experience with the owners. Any and all questions we had were answered and they were extremely nice! They went out of their way to make sure we had a great stay. I want to explore other areas, but I would stay here to rent from them because they were that great! Most of the wineries are on the opposite side of the lake, but there are a few that are right down the road from the house! We did go to the wineries on the opposite side of the lake and it took about 45 minutes to get to the farthest one, but it was worth it! Also be sure to check out the wineries that have an area for boats to dock if you are boating. The dock at the house was very spacious and left plenty of room for everyone to lay around the dock and swim in the lake. The water was shallow enough for adults to touch around the dock. The house was clean and the expectations or any questions about what was available/how to work things in the house were clear. The hot tub was an amazing addition and very clean. The sunsets were BREATHTAKING and the layout of the dock made for great pictures! My boyfriend took a large truck and boat to the house and there was plenty of room for him to park. The house is located in a very nice and quiet dead end road. The cupboards were stocked with kitchen utensils and amenities which made it convenient having to not pack bulky kitchen things or something small like salt or pepper. You are on a lake so be sure to pack some bug spray for the night time! Overall, we were all very happy with our stay and couldn't say more great things about the owners!
The owners were wonderful to work with. The house was cozy and well-stocked with essentials. We loved that it was right on the lake - a beautiful location, and very peaceful. The quietest lake we've ever been on. We were very impressed!
This is our second stay at this property. The owners are fantastic the property is fantastic and the views are amazing. Can’t wait to go back again
This house was exactly as described and so much more. We stayed over Christmas and the owners were so considerate as to put a small tree and beautiful poinsettia arrangement along with several other festive decorations in the house. We had a Wonderful relaxing holiday.
Wonderful location on Cayuga Lake, great eats, winery and brewery nearby.
I stayed at this property about 4 years ago. I actually rented it this time not realizing it was the same. I love the house and the amenities it offers. The owner was very responsive when we had an issue. We felt as tho some areas could’ve been cleaner. That being said - it is possible the owners are not close and are paying someone to maintain this for them.
From the moment deciding on this property until walking in the door it was smooth sailing. Paul and Debbie were always quick with answers and were very accommodating. The house has a very warm and comforting feeling, as if you were going to your own Lake Front house for a visit. The sunset views are incredible, be sure to bring your camera. I went with sisters and my daughter for a little get away and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Already looking to maybe return again. Just wish the temperature had not plummeted and we had been able to enjoy the Hot Tub more.
I would recommend this lovely cottage to anyone who may be planning a stay at Lake Cayuga. The owners, Paul and Debbie Caforio were communicative from the time of booking and always quick to respond to any questions that we had about the property. Our stay started on Oct. 17 and we were a group of four college friends taking our annual long weekend trip. We always try and pick a new destination. Lake Cayuga was the pick this year and this was the perfect cottage for us! The sunsets in the evening were magnificent from the decks, as well as the living room. All four bedrooms were comfortable and there was plenty of space throughout the house to relax and enjoy. We cooked dinner each night and the kitchen was cozy and had all that we needed. It is a great spot and has lots of character. You will feel very comfortable at Sunset Paradise.
The perfect house for us. Had everything we needed—including filtered water , paper plates and a lot of towels (things we had packed for the trip but could have left at home!). Clear communication with hosts who were incredibly helpful as I planned a girls weekend away. They had great recommendations and answered promptly. We are hoping to return next year!
We are four college friends finishing our annual reunion. House for us is perfect, space the same...what stands out for me though is the responsiveness of the owners. This was our second stay with Debbie and Paul. We will be back.
We loved our four-day stay at Sunset Paradise! The house had just enough space for six adults and a rambunctious three-year-old. It was great to be so close to the water, and the house was very comfortable.
Was a nice cottage with a great deck and a big dock to fish from.
We were a group of six adults and the house gave us plenty of room to spread out but still be together. The highlight is the decks and docks for us! The owner allowed us to use the kayaks at their other cottage three doors down. The family really enjoyed the lake activities and then the hot tub!We had several fires in the owners fire ring. The sunsets are truly spectacular. We had everything we needed in the kitchen for family meals. There are also several wineries near by if you don’t want to do a full day of wine tours. We went into the small historic town of Aurora for Fathers Day diner and then again for lunch. We would highly recommend Fargo Bar and Grill. The food was great and had vegan offerings! The fact that we could bring our daughters dog was the icing on the cake. Thanks to the owners for letting him come. We would highly recommend this cottage for any group but especially a family vacation!
Super convenient location, fully equipped rental. Not the typical rental, very, very nice, like home!
My friends and I stayed here for Wells reunion and had a blast. Amazing view of the lake, fantastic hot tub and dock. We loved it so much we will be staying here again.
The house and location were perfect. The house was not only clean, but very cute, homey and comfortable. The area is beautiful - a perfect place to get away and still have fun and interesting places to visit and explore nearby.
Lovely Lakehouse perfect for any type of getaway. This weekend was a girls getaway of 8 women. We ate in for all meals thanks to the kitchen that has everything you need. All had a wonderful time and want to make this an annual Girls Weekend. Owners are wonderful to work with and are very accommodating.
The cottage is simply, Wonderful! This was my Christmas gift to my Mom and 2 Aunts. They were all impressed with the cottage, the views and hot tub! Even in winter, this is the place to stay! The local winery and brewery is 1 mile away and both are great! Easy to get to Ithica and easy to get the West side of the lake. We will certainly be back when we come to this lake.
Even in March, the view and sunset is unbelievable.
Great house, nice owners.
Everything went way past what was expected. The owners are very attentive to every want and need. When you open the door you feel right at home. I cannot wait for my next stay here.
Clean and cozy. Had a wonderful week. Thanks for making sure we were comfortable!
It was an amazing and relaxing weekend. We came here for my wife’s birthday to do and wine tour and couldn’t have been happier! The place was clean and at an excellent location. The owners were amazing and quickly responded to any and all questions we asked. They even went out of their way to find us restaurants and recommend tour services and wineries. The best part was opening the door and finding a personalized note with a bottle of wine and a happy birthday wish to my wife. We loved it and the owners and would highly recommend anyone to stay with them you won’t be disappointed at all!
This lakefront was exactly what we needed for a home base to attend a family wedding in Aurora. The young folks loved the hot tub. The kitchen was well stocked to cook up Saturday morning breakfast for everyone. The couch was comfy for an afternoon snooze. The location was just close enough to activities in town but provided a place to take in more of what the area has to offer. Would definitely recommend it to friends and just might return in warmer weather.
First time in the finger lakes, we had a wonderful experience staying at this property! Only complaint was the oven did not heat evenly and our meals took longer to bake. Overall, we had a great time and would recommend this house!
Overall, the trip was a lot of fun. Didn't appreciate being charged for cleaning and then follow instructions to clean and vacuum upon leaving. Tried to clean the stove and oven unsuccessful. Beds not comfortable and had to walk through another bedroom to get out. Not very private.
The house was perfect for what we needed it for and the owners were super responsive to questions and helped us out tremendously.
This was my second stay at Sunset Paradise. I can't say enough about this lake house!. There are 4 roomy bedrooms, 2 nice full baths. A hot tub, sunsets, and so much more. I stayed with 5 teenagers who had so much fun! They kayaked, swam and made up there own water games! I highly recommend this lake house to anyone who wants to experience lake life. Owners Debbie and Paul are available and so helpful. Whether you want to visit the area and tour the wineries or just read a book on the deck this is the place to be!! Looking forward to next summer!
We really enjoyed our stay. Great location to get away from it all! The house is well-appointed and has everything you need.
Spent 4 nights with 3 old college friends. This cottage is exactly what we were looking for. Well equipped kitchen was a must for us, and this home did not disappoint. Home name fits perfectly. We would only suggest a ladder for getting out of the lake at the dock. The stone lake bottom makes walking in and out difficult. Otherwise, we highly recommend this cottage. Owners Debbie and Paul were always quick to answer email questions which we greatly appreciated.
Overall this place has everything you need and want for a vacation. You will be on the water, you will have 4 bedrooms, and you will have a hot tub. Everything is clean and the house is well furnished. I love the fact that you are close to the wineries and town is just a stone throw away. The owners are decent to work with. I have to be honest. Initially I was disappointed in the outside of this property. It looks a bit run down. But the property is on a dirt road so the owners can't help that. The deck could of used paint but I did walk barefoot and nothing cut into my feet.. we had a nice time!
Absolutely the most relaxing enjoyable vacation we could ask for. Paul and Debbie are amazing hosts that make the booking process seamless. Everything you need is available at the location. Meal preparation is made seamless by provided appliances, and cookware. We experienced very warm and relatively chilly weather during our stay and the house provides all the accommodations to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout each room of the house. Hot days were spent enjoying the lake, and chilly evenings allowed us the opportunity to take advantage of the hot tub. We have rented numerous properties on this lake over the years and this one is by far the best! The lakefront location is easily accessible from the road and the property has spacious parking available unlike most others. The property is VERY well maintained, it is clear that Paul and Debbie want to provide the absolute best experience for their guests. Sunset paradise is appropriately named as every evening had incredible views! Thank you Paul and Debbie for being available and such considerate hosts! We hope to return again!
I had no idea it was going to be this gorgeous when we came by on a late winter weekend. It was too cold to take a dip in the water but absolutely did not deter us from enjoying everything else in the house . the hot tub is awesome !!! Hammock is very relaxing and I can imagine what great hits they would be during summer! The house itself is well appointed , there is not a thing you would miss; from kitchen to bedroom to the baths , they have covered everything.. The views from every room is just beyond words ! Paul and Debbie were so easy to talk to and were always readily available for any questions I had. I very much look forward to a summer trip here :)
Our group stayed for a long weekend and had a great time. Host and hostess were readily available if needed. Hot tub was a wonderful feature. Close to Aurora and wineries as advertised. Thank you.
The house is well appointed and nicely decorated. If you forget something don’t worry, they have it! From staples in the kitchen paper products cleaning products coffee tea spices and every toiletrie you would want in the bathroom! We met the owners at arrival who care deeply about their newly acquired lake front home. They came to check on internet and shovel the snow. Great couple I wish them well. The road you come in on is at a slight incline and a dead end single lane road. Four wheel drive will definitely help your travels in the winter! There are pullovers if another car meets but we had no trouble. I think we were the only visitors and a few residents in the quaint area of the lake. Summer may be challenging with homes filled with sprawling families. But nonetheless a beautiful area to explore with an excellent view of the lake.
We enjoyed a winter getaway at sunset paradise. The view and location is fantastic and worth staying for it alone. Lots of room and comfortable furnishings. Hot tub gets nice and hot and is covered so we enjoyed it even during a cold winter rain. Paul and Debbie are attentive host and were very quick to respond to any of our questions.
Excellent house! Loved the location. House was spotless, very clean, well stocked for a great weekend! Would def stay there again!
This was amazing and exactly what we were looking for to get away for a weekend. The property itself was great and the views of the lake were stunning! Everything was up kept and clean. It was wonderful.
Our stay at Sunset Paradise was even more than we could ever imagine. Having a house right on the lake with all the amenities of home made our weekend a memorable one. When I reached out to Paul with some questions about the area he was more than glad to answer all of them. He even gave us a few names of local restaurants and places to be sure to visit during our stay. The house itself was clean, quaint and cozy. It was a pleasure staying at the sunset Paradise and we can't wait to get back together for another girl's weekend. Thanks again, Beverly (PA)
The house is very charming and a great place to come back to after a day of shopping and visiting wineries. Our only regret was that we didn't plan the trip when it was warmer so we could have enjoyed the deck!
This property is clean, up-to-date, and located beautifully on the lake. We were so blessed to be able to spend a weekend there and get some down time. The weather was quite warm for November and we had clear skies for most of our time there. A storm rolled in on the day that we were leaving and it was just beautiful to watch the lake churn and hear the waves crash against the shore. The owners were very easy to work with and made sure that we had everything that we needed. We would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away for some fun and relaxation!
We spent a fair amount of time sorting through properties before selecting Sunset Paradise, and we were not disappointed. In fact, it turned out to be even better than we hoped for! First, owners were great to work with from start to finish, and were very quick to respond. Second, the property was in great shape, clean and fully stocked. It turned out to be more comfortable than we had even anticipated. We had four adults and there was room for more. During the summer the property could handle the 8 it has beds for. The hot tub, firepit, gas grill, fishing dock, and kayak all got put to good use. We rented a boat one day and had a blast on the lake. Tons of wineries and breweries in the area, plus many waterfalls to hike to. We were impressed and may drag the boat next time to really pack in the fun. And we'd definitely return to Sunset Paradise. Thanks for everything--- we had a great time!!!
Very nice place to stay if you like a lake! Double kayak there and did my first kayaking and absolutely loved it. Took sunset pictures that were made for National Geographic. Paul was helpful when I had problem (my bad) with Wi-Fi. Would not recommend in warm weather as no AC, but we really enjoyed the home and the area, including Aurora and Ithaca . Not that far from Niagara Falls for a day trip. Home well stocked, especially the kitchen. Home on gravel road with little around it but other homes. We enjoyed.
Stayed here for a long weekend, house was immaculate, comfortable beds, amazing views and a hot tub- can't go wrong! Lake is rocky, so a little difficult to wade in (I wish there was a ladder off the end of the dock). Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay!
Great few days. The house had everything we needed and the owners were very accomodating.
Spent 5 nights 6 days at this lake home. I highly recommend for anyone. Family, or friends will love this home. Four comfortable bedrooms, two bathrooms. Two decks, a hammock to nap or read in. A kayak to enjoy on the lake and a hot tub to watch the lightening in the clouds at night. The owners are wonderful and want nothing but for you to enjoy your time at their home!
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely lakefront home. Our lab also enjoyed the water and nature. Will definitely consider renting again in the future.
Lake + jacuzzi = fun!!! Nice cute house. Super nice owner. Lake front. Beautiful sunset. Beautiful stars.
Our stay was very pleasant we liked it
