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.
We had a family reunion in Lakeside and really enjoyed our stay. The location was great and your cottage was perfect. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful home!
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!
Lovely Lakeside Cottage
The owner is so responsive and wonderful to work with! This was the best cottage in Lakeside we have rented. Well appointed kitchen, very clean and the renovated cottage is overall wonderful! We will definitely be booking for next year! Thank you!
Half Way Between Everything!
We found ourselves in a lovely home that fit the 10 of us perfectly! And we were the same distance (about quarter of a mile) to every place we thought important: swimming and boating in Lake Erie; the kiddie splash park; ICE CREAM; mini golf; three wonderful vacation restaurants; Pickle Ball; the swimming pool; Hoover Auditorium; and a beautiful walking path along the water. Half Way Between Everything! PLUS we had seven days of perfect sunny weather! Thank you, Michelle, for making your hide-away Lakeside home available to us.

Lovely Lakeside home
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house ahas been beautifully and intelligently renovated. It’s a very easy place to stay, every thing you need is located in a place that makes intuitive sense. The home manual is clear. The golf cart is a fantastic feature. One thing to bear in mind- there are no window treatments on the ground floor, so if you want privacy at night while reading in your pjs, you’ll need to be upstairs.
The homeowner is so gracious. I contacted her far more times than I’m sure she would have liked, and she was very patient with me.
We have stayed many places in Lakeside, and this is one I can recommend with enthusiasm.
Thank you for a lovely stay!
