We had a wonderful time. The cottage is beautiful and well equipped with all you need. We loved the private beach on the other side of the road. Paul and Tris are really amazing and nice people. We invited them to have a barbeque with us and we had a wonderful evening.

We will definitly come back on our next trip to the U.S.

My two girlfriends and I LOVE this cottage! We have stayed many places in our 30+ years of taking bi-yearly getaway trips but this has become our favorite! It's SO peaceful and relaxing in this home. We have rented from Paul before and knew we would be walking into a well-equipped and pristine home. The rental process is completely hassle-free! Paul was so attentive to making sure our stay was enjoyable by recommending local wineries and letting us know we were welcome to use the gas logs as the weather was expected to turn chilly. We can't wait to stay here again next year!

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing weekend at this cottage. We couldn't have had a better time. Paul and Tris are so gracious and accommodating. The cottage is beautiful and very well appointed. They have everything you could need for you, just bring your clothes! Board games and movies are a nice touch also. The private beach on the other side of the road is a dream. My kids couldn't have had a better time running in the lawn and we really enjoyed the beauty and serenity of the private beach area. When the weather didn't cooperate there are so many amazing historic places to check out as well as a lot of fun kid's activity centers. This is just an absolute gem that I would recommend to anyone. We are so excited to have found this wonderful place with such amazing hosts! The kids have already started planning our trip back! Couldn't have been more pleased; thank you!

Another great visit!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just concluded another great stay at Paul and Tris' beautiful cottage on Lake Erie. We've lost count but believe this is our 6 or 7th year to stay in this wonderful house. The setting is relaxed, the house is beautiful and fully equipped - we only need to bring clothes and food, and the weather was fantastic as it generally is when we visit. Paul and Tris are wonderful hosts - very friendly and discrete but available if we need them. Coming here for our week in July is a highlight of our year - we're already looking forward to next year!

Best Vacation Rental EVER!

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I wanted a little getaway vacation so we found this charming cottage right across the road from Lake Erie. We were thrilled with the accommodations as all of the comforts and provisions you would possibly want to enjoy your stay are right there! All you need to bring is your clothes and toothbrush and food! The weather wasn't very cooperative while we were there but rain or shine, there is plenty to do right there on the property! CD player, Flat Screen TV's, DVD Player and movies as well as board games are there to enjoy. The beds were cozy, the place was very clean and the owners were warm and friendly and while we felt that they were there if there was anything we could possibly need, we enjoyed total privacy. They even suggested restaurants, places to visit and helped with locations and driving distances. We did dine at Joey's Italian Restaurant and the food was excellent!

The lake was beautiful and being able to enjoy the sunsets and sunrises from the private beach area was great! Just to hear the waves hitting the beach was totally intoxicating.

The location is perfect as there are major grocery and shopping nearby and dozens of dining choices. We highly recommend this great cottage on the lake to anyone who seeks beauty, pleasure and unequaled comfort! We'll be back!!

Relaxing Family visit with gorgeous views.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and baby boy arrived to enjoy a week with family who live in the Cleveland area. We were able to go out and enjoy time with family and return to the cottage and relax on our own. Whether washing dishes at the kitchen window, or sitting on the front patio, or lounging at the picnic/beach area, the views were deliciously mesmerizing and relaxing. The kitchen was very well stocked as were the bedrooms and entertainment options. Couldn't ask for anything more in experiencing needed time away without giving up the comforts of home. We will be booking again for our annual family gatherings.
