We had a wonderful stay at Suzanne's. She is such a lovely lady and made us feel right at home! She emailed and texted me often during our stay just to see if everything was good or if we needed anything!
The house is just lovely! Immaculately clean and very nicely decorated. All the commodities you can imagine and Suzanne was so kind as to leave breakfast in the fridge for our first morning there. One night we all sat outside and enjoyed the fire pit!
Was pleasantly surprised to find out how close we really were to all the family we were visiting! All in all a great stay and would not hesitate at all to return.. Thanks so much
Suzanne is a really nice host, and her place is great for family. She prepare us the breakfast and send us fruits afternoon. She is such a warm and hospitable host! If you are in East Aurora or you are heading to Niagara Fall, her place is a very good option for you to consider about.
Suzanne was away when we were there, but she made us feel really welcomed and comfortable. We kept a very smooth communication. The house is spotlessly clean, everything is so perfect.
Such a nice and comfortable house! Thanks Suzanne for making us feel like home
A group of four of us stayed at Suzanne's place in East Aurora, and everything was great. The rooms and beds were clean and comfortable, and the back yard was lovely to sit around in and enjoy the outdoors. We were in town for a wedding and didn't spend a ton of time at the house, and for our needs the place was perfect.
Fourth visit. People will talk. Suzanne has improved the residence by upgrading the two bedrooms. Lockable doors mean that the space is configurable for all kinds of guests. Also new is a pleasant garden area with seating, a fire pit and picnic table. Happy times watching the fireflies.

About the Host, Suzanne
Active lifestyle: running, hiking, biking, kayaking, camping.
Recently launched my second career as a small business owner running a Kayak Tour, Lesson and Rental business called Wild Buffalo Tours.
Love living in Western New York but MUST escape every spring to get away from the dreary grey skies and bleak landscape!
I have had the great opportunity to share others vacation homes as a renter for the past 30 years and am a very considerate respectful guest.
I am happy to be able to share my home with those like minded people who want to experience a community as a local as opposed to as a tourist.
