Beautiful, country-like setting, five to ten minutes from everything: Downtown Rochester, Lake Ontario, nightlife, parks, malls, RGH health complex, public transportation. Amazing quiet, nighttime sky and wildlife visitors invite you to spend some down-time in a peaceful, secluded, city-side space. Singles to small groups welcome, including well-behaved pets (additional deposit/cleaning fee). Fully furnished. Ideal for business travel or interim housing for those new to the area. You'll love it!

The space

My place is "faux" isolated. It is located at the dead end of a suburban street where a few acres of undeveloped land remain; the property sits on one acre in the middle of West Irondequoit, NY. It's peaceful, quiet, and the local deer love to wander through in the morning and early evening for a snack.
The home is a remodeled farmhouse. Walls were removed to make a 'great room,' huge 'picture windows' from a 1960s addition overlook the yard, and the downstairs bedrooms, one with exterior door leading to a small patio, sit next to a bath to die for (see photos). Perfect for a good soak followed by a glass of wine while you watch the deer wander about outside.
Wifi and a great work/study area provide a relaxed and efficient work environment. Ample parking and the spacious 'great room' invite client meetings, business conferences and professional development retreats.

Guest access

Guests will have the entire place to themselves. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a patio and a picnic table in the yard.

Interaction with guests

I live minutes away and I am available via cell-phone. Feel free to call me for fresh towels, advice about the area, or any other needs/questions that you have; or invite me to come sit a spell in your new home away from home and chat about your trip and other mutual interests. If I am out of town, my sister Dale will be your host.

Other things to note

Irondequoit, NY, is one of Rochester's oldest suburbs. It sits between Lake Ontario and the city proper -- the city line is literally three minutes from the house, and it offers an amazing array of things to do: harbor, river, boat rides, amusement park, zoo, library, county park (picnic areas, golf course and challenging hiking trails), bars, restaurants, coffee shops, malls, and the wonderful new I-Square complex, complete with roof garden, (URL HIDDEN)

Nice quiet place in a calm northern suburb, with shops fairly nearby. That doesn't mean you can walk to them, though: the layout of the neighbourhood is annoyingly designed to make you walk half a mile to get to the other side of the hedge. You need a car, or perhaps better a bicycle. One of us tried Sunday morning at the Ukrainian church down the road (9:30 in English, 11:30 in Ukrainian) and found it a peculiar but satisfactory experience.

Cleanliness is next to godliness. This was one of best up-kept homes I've been to. Bonnie was also a fantastic and accommodating host. The area is peaceful and private, even though it's not too far away from the city. I really enjoyed my stay.

We had a great one at Bonnie’s. I had a beautiful run up to the lake, and she was super responsive to all my questions. Check-in was simple and everything was as described! Great place to stay in Rochester if you’re a large group.
