Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Fred and Kelly, Our group of eight women thoroughly enjoyed staying at your wonderful family home "Madison on the Lake". We were so excited to be together in such a pleasant, welcoming environment. We adored our Sunday evening meal at the new restaurant up the street, Allure, and appreciate your recommendation. Thank you very much for making this memorable opportunity available for our group. We hope someday to return to this lovely part of Ohio. Sincere Thanks from Patty (MI), Pam (NC), Marsha (OH), Chris (WI), Nancy (OH), Sharon (KY), Beverly (CO), and Vicki (OH) - graduates of USHS

Wonderful sister's weekend

  • 5 of 5

We held our annual sister's weekend in May at this lovely lake house. All of us were impressed with the cleanliness of the house. The house provided ample space to socialize as well as have quiet time. We especially enjoyed sitting along the beach and chatting. Fred and Kelly were very easy to work with. We particularly enjoyed learning of their family history by the many photographs displayed throughout the house. Overall, everyone enjoyed this visit and plan to visit again next year.

Family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a week at this house bringing together Five adults and 6 children from 3 families. The house provided plenty of room and we may return next year with two more adults and another child. There are two large living rooms and a large sun room with plenty of room to spread out with kids watching one of the two televisions, games being played and some of us reading or talking. The kitchen is well supplied and we cooked in every meal. There is a super Walmart about 2 miles away as well as a Giant grocery store. The kids had a great time on the sandy beach and we used the kayak and paddle board provided by rental. There is also a large yard in the back that worked great for outside games. The property is on a quiet street and the property extends to the lake.

Wonderful Family Reunion Location

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from our week stay with our family for a reunion vacation. We so enjoyed this home and location, it felt very right for family. I can still hear the sound of Lake Erie when I wake up every morning. Tons of day trips to take. We ran out of time to do it all; Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Geneva-on-the-Lake boardwalk and Cleveland zoo, to name a few. The family is already talking about next year which has not been decided on yet. But this location is number one on the list if we have another reunion next year. The sunsets are stunning, I have been to the Caribean several times and the sunsets here are much better. Thank you for making memories for our family.
