About Property Manager
Being the middle child of 5 kids of Ray & Bonnie Scheerer, Mike grew up in Lakeside during the summer months of his youth. His mom and dad owned a house on Third Street and they would always go to Lakeside every summer. As a kid, he always enjoyed swimming and fishing on the pier, putt putt golf and playing basketball with other kids on the playground. It was at Lakeside the he first learned how to play shuffle board. As Mike's childhood years slipped into his teens, and his summers were filled with sports camps, jobs to pay for gas for his car, he always found one week each summer to go back to Lakeside with his parents to enjoy the fun. When Mike went to college to play football at Baldwin Wallace college, we met our sophomore year. We got married in 1980 and I was introduced to this special community called "The Little Chautauqua, Lakeside." His parents sold the house on Third and bought our cottage at 317 Central. It was a wonderful upgrade for them as they had both worked so hard all their lives as a school teacher and a principal. As adult kids, we were so happy that Mom and Dad enjoyed their retired time together at Lakeside where Dad loved to sit on the front porch in a rocking chair and watch the many people walk by Hoover Auditorium on their way to the lake or Lakeside town center. While Dad was reading (or sleeping) on the front porch, Mom would love to bake pies, cookies and make homemade meals every day and night for her, Dad and any of the children and their friends who would join them. Mike began to help his parents take care of the Lakeside cottage here on Central. To Mike, it was not a chore, but a chance to pay back his Mom and Dad for all they had done for him and to continue to be involved in Lakeside. Mike soon found himself as the caretaker and maintenance guy. Eventually we became the owners of this special cottage and continue the legacy of making sure our 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren get the same experience as Mike.

Our cottage is centrally located across from Hoover Auditorium, which has entertainment every night during the summer. We are just 2 short blocks away from the shuffle board courts, center of town with the shops, Sloopy's pizza, ice cream, movie theatre, shopping, the pier, activites and the beautiful paved walking path along Lake Erie. It truly is the perfect location for family members of all ages.

With air conditioning and a remodeled upstairs half-bath and four bedrooms, and a remodeled downstairs full bath and bedroom, this is an ideal cottage for a group. Cute, clean and designed for respite in rockers on the front porch across from Hoover. I refuse to say more great things about the owners or this place, however true, because it is already getting too hard to find open week(s) here! Thanks!
Perfectly Located Lakeside Cottage
317 Central was a great cottage that helped enhance a wonderful week at Lakeside. Having friends staying at Lakeside, in other cottages, we were definitely the envy of the group, being so close to downtown, across from Hoover Auditorium, and having the perfect porch to always have someone sitting on. And although the kitchen and a few upstairs room were small, they were just as the pictures showed they would be, and contained everything you would need to have a good week. I was impressed at what the stove could hold, even though it looks pretty tiny! We would definitely choose to stay here again in the future!
So glad to hear you had a great week with family and friends Katie. You are not alone with everyone loving our front porch. It truly is a perfect location. With our photos we post, I try to make sure future renters know what they are getting and no surprises. We too have cooked many great meals with that tiny stove and oven.
We look forward to having you anytime in the future!

Great Lakeside house! Offered plenty of cooking supplies, large backyard and front porch. The location was very close to all that Lakeside has to offer. My family really enjoyed our stay.
This was my first time renting a cottage in Lakeside, and this cottage couldn't have been more perfect! Beautifully decorated, we had everything we needed from kitchen utensils to a dining table large enough to seat 8 people, to air conditioning that kept us cool in very hot weather. The bedrooms were comfortable with plenty of dresser and hanging space. The front porch with the awning and rocking chairs were perfect for sitting out in the evenings, listening to the entertainment coming from Hoover Auditorium across the street. It was nice to also be able to eat at the table on the back patio. The location is excellent, just 1.5 blocks away from the downtown Lakeside area, playgrounds, and shuffleboard courts. It's just a few steps more to the lake!
Spending a week in Lakeside was a wonderful experience for my family, and being able to stay in such a beautiful home was part of what made it so great!
What a wonderful, heartfelt review. We work very hard to make our Lakeside cottage comfortable for our renters with amenities that we require as renters also! When we stay in our cottage, we also want to feel like it's another home for us, our kids and grandchildren. We are so happy "Camp Scheerer" brought your entire family joy, love and togetherness for the week. You are welcome any time.

The property was in a great location – so close to the park and right across the street from Hoover. The beds were quite comfortable. The table on the back patio was great for all of our meals. We also enjoyed the firepit. The front porch was great for people watching. The kitchen is small, but well equipped. Overall the set up worked quite well for our family of 5 adults and 4 small children.
Thank you for taking the time to write the review and we are glad you enjoyed our cottage. We try to give our renters a comfortable setting because we know what we like as a family. We too love rocking on the front porch and listening to the music at Hoover! Hope you can stay with us again in the future!
Great family cottage
The cottage was very comfortable-including the mattresses! It was great having the five bedrooms and the one and one-half bathes. Big family dining table for meals together. Great location!
We are so glad you enjoyed staying in our cottage. We just got the new mattresses last year so that makes me feel good that our renters notice too! With the remodeled bathroom downstairs and half up, it makes a difference for families. And you cannot beat the location. Thanks for the review and you are welcome to stay with us anytime!
