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!

The month was extremely relaxing. Loved our stay at this beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We plan to come back next year. Our stay was phenomenal. The provisions were perfect. Thank you. We told all our friends here at the lakes about how great it is and they are passing along to their family and friends. We couldn't have asked for a better place.

Some observations. The lawn was only mowed once during our stay, and when it was yesterday, they didn't clean up after themselves. Also, the beautiful landscaping is being overcome with weeds. Also, I noticed that the air conditioner could use some cleaning. If it's not getting the air you may be looking at replacing in the near future.

I also noticed a couple of ceiling spots in the dining kitchen area. They didn't appear to be wet.

Anyhow, just wanted to share. None of these items took away from the exceptional stay that we had. Thanks again.

Plan to Return in 2017

  • 5 of 5

Great spot at Portage Lakes. We only live about 45 minutes from the Lakes, but love to go down and spend the day there. We have been looking for a place to stay and this spot was perfect. Very close to the golf course in which we used, wife enjoyed watching the squirrels play, and we had a dock to put our kayak on. The beds were comfortable, clean, and cottage temperature was perfect on our 3 day stay of over 80 degrees. There is a campfire pit on the dock by the water for use, we did not use, but it is an awesome set up. We used the gas grill on the deck which worked out perfect. Perfect getaway for anyone, our first time using VBRO and it was a great experience.

Great quiet get away while still close to civilization

  • 5 of 5

Very beautiful home, large bay windows overlooking the lake fill the house with light. House is only 20 yards from the water. The area has a very small town feel while being only 15-20 minutes from downtown Akron. Loved it. Would definitely recommend and stay again.
