Owner info

Year Purchased: 1993

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner 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!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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..
