    Great Family Labor Day Celebration!

    This property was a perfect location for our Labor Day celebration. The house is very well equipped, with great amenities. Our grandchildren loved the “bunk room” and all the bikes, scooters and sports gear in the storage shed! AND having use of a golf cart was enjoyed by all. The house was even better than pictures - would thoroughly recommend this house, we would definitely book this house again! Thanks Michelle for your gracious hospitality!

    Everything you need at Lakeside

    The cottage was spacious and updated. Offered everything you needed, including golf cart! Easy check in. Leave time in the morning to complete all required check out items. It was a great stay!


    Nice place, VERY expensive parking fees

    The property was very clean, accessible to the community due to the golf cart provided by manager, close to the lake, pool and shops. The laundry process at the end of the stay was hurried and excessive. We had to have all bed sheets, pillow cases and towels washed, dried and put back in place; which was difficulty with 7 adults and a child and having to be out by 10am. The community is very religious and “dry,” so if you are looking to be out past 8 or have a few drinks this is not your cup of tea. Go to Put-in-Bay for that. The restaurants in the community were nothing to write home about, but if you like ice cream there are lots of options. The pool opens late (12 on weekends, 11 on weekdays) and closes very early (5:45pm) and no snack bar! There is adult swim however. Number one reason I would not go back has nothing to do with manager or rental property, but the car/ parking fee was unacceptable, I have never experienced anything like it. I can’t put price here or I would, go to the website for pricing. They charged per person, not car. For the price of parking for 3 days we could have booked a flight to Paris, a Vegas vacation, etc. This should be factored into the price or written in bold in the description everywhere, instead of “look up summer rates, not included.” I never in my wildest dreams would have expected to pay that kind of money to park a car in Ohio.

    The house was fabulous!

    Hi Michelle, we had a great week and the house was loved by all of us. It has so many wonderful amenities we appreciated from the updates to the number of people it sleeps and eats, location, fun outside toys in the shed, golf cart, screened-in porch, etc., etc. The grandkids had a blast playing outside and riding their bikes and scooters. They also LOVED the bunk room! Everything was in great working order and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your lovely home. If you have any questions for me don’t hesitate to ask. Thank you so much! Sincerely, Beth
