Relax and unwind in this beautiful setting and gorgeous house!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this particular property based on its many positive reviews on the VRBO website, and we were by no means disappointed, as the reviews that describe the house and property and their hosts were very accurate.

Not ever having spent time in the state of New York, we decided that we wanted to check out its beauty and vacation in rural surroundings. The BF Bungalow was the perfect setting for doing so. Situated on 50+ lovingly maintained private acres full of woods and fields of wild flowers with many paths meandering through, this spacious historic house is a perfect place to get away from it all, while also being a perfect base from which to go on many different adventures which aren't too far away. The attractively decorated and very clean house has much charm and character, many nooks and crannies in which to relax, plenty of comfortable furniture, and is fully supplied with whatever one can think of needing. The setting is serene and gorgeous - so much beauty for the the senses to soak up. Our stay in the midst of summer was a great success despite the absence of A/C and pretty warm weather (low to mid 80s): several fans and open windows at night provided cool air, and the spring-fed pond provided swimming refreshment. Not having TV or Internet (though cell phones work beautifully - AT&T and Verizon) was a huge plus for us. The historic character of the house and many of its antique furnishings lend themselves to feeling as though one has slipped back in time a bit, sighing a breath of relief, freed from all the busyness that too often accompanies our modern electronic era. We made several outings - Niagara Falls State Park (plus Canada), beautiful Letchworth State Park, Lake Ontario and Rochester, and several of the Finger Lakes. We thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of western New York and are thankful to owners Julie and Bob for making their home available and for being kind and helpful hosts! They obviously put a lot of love and labor into this gem. We warmly recommended it!

A fantastic place to unwind and relax!

  • 5 of 5

I used the bungalow as a home base while reconnecting with family in the area. It was located in the perfect location; far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquility of the country, but close to amenities and local attractions. The house was spacious enough for family to stop by and visit while maintaining a cozy charm. Bob does an impeccable job manicuring the grounds and Julie was friendly and attentive. I've already recommended the bungalow to friends and family alike. My only regret was that my family obligations pulled us away from the bungalow more than I wanted.

Great Stay All Around

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful find! We all loved Bob and Julie and their entire family (plus Yukon)! This place was so unique and quaint. The kids especially loved playing in the pond and fishing on the hot July days. They had fun playing croquet, horse shoes, volley ball, and bocci ball too! It has a remote feel, but in a short drive you can be to a famous drive in and putt putt course, and Letchworth State Park is close as well. Letchworth is so beautiful and you can easily spend an entire day there hiking around and seeing the waterfalls. We also visited Niagara Falls for a day trip and that was less than an hour and 1/2 away. All around this rental was so much more than "a rental" it felt like home away from home and the hospitality of our hosts made it even more perfect!

Staying in the Bungalow was a great experience. It is like stepping back in time. We are a foursome of two retired couples who travel together a few times a year. The accommodations were clean, homey & had great character. The property was wonderful to explore. Bob & Julie were so caring in guiding our tours, attention to detail and making us feel so welcomed. We came to see the Niagra Falls and their beauty but were so delighted to be in such a central location to visit so many great destinations. It definitely exceeded our expectations.

love this place!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I took a glass class in Batavia for 7 days and stay in this sweet little bungalow. We really enjoyed it! Here is what they did well:

The owners were very nice and easy to work with

The home was very clean

loved the old record player and the records (we played old music every night)

The two bedrooms were very large

one of the bathrooms is very large and the other is very small

the grounds were amazing with trails, pond and privacy

the kitchen was fully equipped and we used it every night to make dinner

huge dining room

nice fireplace that could be handy in the winter

loved the fresh bread when we arrived

Here is what they could add to make it even better (I would rebook this location even if they did not add the following minor items)

a sharp kitchen knife

a full size mirror in the first bedroom

curtains in the lower bedroom

loved the games in the family room

WE really enjoyed this house and the owners.
