Why Jeanne Crofford/Property Manager chose Ohio

Owner grew up in the Akron area and loves the Portage Lakes area.

What makes this house unique

The Great Room has beautiful hardwood floors, wood beams and a big stone fireplace, that makes for a cozy feeling. On either side of the fireplace are huge windows that look out onto the lake and golf course. The house is on a quiet area of the lake with no through traffic. Herons can be seen in the early evening, as well as other birds and wildlife through the day. It is utterly charming!

Beautiful, clean, and lives up to its name

  • 5 of 5

This little cottage is adorable, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen is nicely stocked, towels were laid out in each room. It's like being a guest in the home of a very good hostess. The view out the living room windows is lovely and the gas fireplace ups the cozy-quotient big time. Can't recommend enough.

Beautiful, charming, tranquil!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to The Cottage. Our first stay was over Thanksgiving and this visit was to surprise our daughter at the University of Akron. Each stay was fabulous. The Cottage was well stocked, very convenient to UA, and the view of the lake was fabulous. it might sound silly, but since we are from California, we were extremely grateful for the garage. Snow is not our thing, and being able to get into a dry vehicle that didn't sit out in the snow overnight was wonderful. We loved coming "home" each night, turning on the fire and relaxing. It was so much better than a hotel room. We are looking forward to many return trips.

Relaxing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I love this cabin. I love everything about it. It has so much character, it's warm and inviting. The views of the lake and the golf course are awesome. We have stayed here twice, both visits in the fall, and it is very quiet and peaceful. Hope to have another opportunity to stay again soon!

Peaceful and wonderfully located on Lake.

  • 5 of 5

If anyone is in the Akron, Ohio area for family, long business stay OR lives in Ohio and needs to get away this is the place for you. Don't sleep on Aunt Martha's couch, or cram in with relatives, rent this wonderfully located home on a lake! End up with a destination after your visit with relatives, or business and feel cares melt away as you gaze upon the peaceful lake, enjoying a quite glass of wine by the water. If you live in the state, I can't think of a more affordable get a way location to feel like your on a lovely lake side vacation! Boating rentals, good restaurants and grocery close by.

This fit our need as out of state visitors here to attend a large family gathering and wanting more then a room at a hotel. This was exactly what we needed to offset traveling a long ways and not feeling uncomfortable . We will come back in a heartbeat, to visit our daughter whom will be here permiately! How nice I could even cook for her!

Woke up early each morning to watch sun rise on lake! Gorgeous !
