About Bernie Cooper

My husband and I have been summering or residing in Fair Haven all of our lives. This property was my family's cottage until 1998 when my husband and I built a year round home here. We have lived here for the past 15 years with our 4 children.

Bernie Cooper purchased this house in 1998

Why Bernie Cooper chose Fair Haven

This property has been in my family for 33 years. My husbands family's cottage is just 2 doors down and is how we met. My husband's family has been rooted in Fair Haven since it was established. My family has vacationed here for over 40 years and lived here for 31 years. We have enjoyed all Fair Haven has to offer and would now like to share those experiences with you.

What makes this house unique

This property was one of 10 parcels originally established in 1895 as The Imperial Club. The original founders created a unique place for members to enjoy their summers. That is why today our property is one of the only deep lots with gradual access to the bay. You will find the best views and some of the deepest water in all of Little Sodus Bay. Too many benefits to mention !

Couples Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a couples weekend (8 couples) at the Imperial. There are no words for how impressed each couple was with the accommodations. The weather was perfect for being outside for playing cornhole during the day, having breakfast and lunch on the deck and a perfect fire around the firepit at night. We also enjoyed hanging out at the boat house with cocktails before dinner each night. We all agreed that we needed at least a week or so to enjoy all the Imperial had to offer. We will be back again next year. Thanks to Bradley and Bernie for being such gracious hosts. (We had several people who enjoyed watching college football on the big screen on Saturday.)

We had a family reunion of 21 ages 2-85 and what a wonderful week we had. The house was perfect and the owners very nice to work with. A well equipment kitchen and the second area worked out well for us as the kids drinks were in that fridge and kept the traffic out of the cooking area yet supervised. High water was not a problem as the owner made a new - higher dock. Wonderful time had by all.

Perfect New Year's Celebration Location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 14 (3 families with adult children) rented this home for a New Year's weekend get-away. The house was the perfect size for our group and never felt crowded. The kitchen was great and everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were. Even with the cold and snow we were able to get out and enjoy the hot tub and walk to the winery down the road as well as the lake. Seeing the sunrise over the bay in the morning was priceless. We hope to be able to rent this place again.

This past weekend we rented this home for our yearly family get together. Our family consists of 20 people ranging in ages from 6 to 80 years old and we absolutely loved it. The gazebo by the water is awesome, and the home theater and game room provided something for everyone to do. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the bathrooms well placed throughout the home. I look forward to returning next year.

Best family reunion rental ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our large group (ages 5-75) stayed here for our family reunion. This is the first vacation rental that everyone agreed we would want to return to for our next reunion. We have rented vacation homes all over New England and this was the best by far. The home was in excellent shape, the owners were very pleasant and responsive to all questions, and the location on the bay was fabulous. The owners take great pride in this home and it shows. The double dish washers and refrigerators were great to have. The beds and linens seemed almost brand new. On the waterfront our group fished, swam, and kayaked We rented a boat with skis and a tube for part of the week which added to the fun. We walked to the state park a few evenings to watch the gorgeous sunset over Lake Ontario. This home was better than advertised!

The Letchworth crew

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a long weekend there in the fall in late October, the pictures do not do this place justice. With the group of people that we had it was the perfect place. The owners were outstanding and we plan on coming back
