Lake Aurora Vacation
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!

5/5 Excellent

Great family fun

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful lake location
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.
