This cottage is hands down the best weekly rental my husband and I have ever experienced, and we've done quite a few over the years. The house is just as charming as it looks in the photos, both on the outside and the inside. The owners are extremely nice and take pride in the upkeep of the property. It is immaculate and well supplied. They called us halfway through the week to ask if we needed an additional air conditioner because it was warmer than expected. We didn't need it but appreciated their attentiveness.
All the extras--kitchen supplies, linens, kayak and fishing poles, W/D, dishwasher, TVs and DVD players, WiFi--are the best we have ever experienced with a weekly rental. We stayed for a week, and I could have stayed much longer if I had the time.
This would be an excellent option for people with kids, as the downstairs offers its own separate sleeping area, TV/DVD, etc. We have family in the area, which is why we chose Akron, but even if you don't, this would be a great place for anyone to stay for a week or longer. The Portage Lakes area is beautiful, and this cottage shows it off to full advantage. Akron (e.g., Zoo, Stan Hywet museum), Cleveland (e.g. Zoo, R&R Hall of Fame), and Amish country offer many interesting and enjoyable sight-seeing opportunities. Cedar Point Amusement Park is also not too far.
I will definitely stay here again if given the opportunity and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great getaway.
