Just Right For a Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 loved spending time here! Tennis courts, a beautiful beach, a large formal rose garden, fountain and more were right outside the door.

The house is unique, cozy, and peaceful. You can tell much work has been put into it. Beds were comfy, kitchen was well supplied, bathrooms clean. It wasn't overly fancy...but neither are we! We felt very much at home, and we plan to return next year.

Cute house. Turned out to be a great place to stay for Oberlin Parents Weekend.

  • 4 of 5

If this house listed itself as 3-4 bedrooms I would give it 5 stars. It worked great for 3 couples sharing, but depending on your mix of folks counting on 5 bedrooms might not work. As mentioned by others, the attic bedroom only has access via stairs from another bedroom. Would work great as a kids “secret bedroom” but not for another couple. The stairs are narrow but not dangerous. The basement bedroom is through the laundry room nice and quiet and a comfy bed, but the stairs down would be hard to navigate for someone elderly or obese. It also wasn’t clear to me there was any second exit out of the basement so if you were traveling with a fire-safety-conscious person, no one would be allowed to sleep down there.

It’s a cute old house, immaculately clean with nice little homey details. It is clear this house is lived and cared for and that counts for tons. Even though we were primarily in town to visit our son at Oberlin, the house is in an awesome location across from a park and half a block to the lake. I can see having a lovely multi-family time here when the weather is nice.

It's a nice house

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house initially but Kelly upgraded us by moving us in to her other house which was right beside this one, much bigger and spacious, and had lake view from the patio which was the best part. We didnt explore much except walking to the beach which was completely hijacked by sea eagles which was a bummer. We instead played in the tennis court which was right across the street. Its a nice house that needs to be updated and I believe Kelly is already working on it :) But it was totally worth the amount that we spent. Would totally recommend this place.

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

The Beacon B & B was perfect for our Girls trip of 6 High School long time friends! Kelly went above & beyond to make sure all was well & she was easily accessible. The big front porch only enhanced our memorable, fun visit!

Clean, good location and great host

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean and was a great location for the Cabela's National Walleye Tournament out of Lorain, Ohio. The layout of the house is a little awkward but once you get used to things it is fine. Kelly was a great host and even gave us ideas of things to do in the area. Joe, the neighbor next door was a wealth of knowledge of things to do and see in the area.
