Why Steve & Gina chose Akron

This Lake is The Only Non-Man Made Lake in The Portage Lakes. Its As Natural As it Gets.There Are 5 Lakes to Portage But...Long Lake is Natures Way Of Saying Good Morning ! Portage Lakes lies at one of the highest points of the state and on a major watershed divide in Ohio. Some water from the lakes reaches Lake Erie and some flows to the Ohio River.The area became an important trading post for settlers and Indians. It was a recognized landmark during the War of 1812, serving as a rendezvous point of American troops. The old Indian portage path was part of the ancient boundary between the Six Nations and the Western Indians The Portage Lakes have many species swimming in their

waters. Largemouth Bass, Walleye, Black and White

Crappie, Muskellunge, Eastern Chain Pickerel, Bluegill,

Redear Sunfish, Pumpkinseed, Rainbow Trout, Warmouth

Bass, Yellow Perch, Channel Catfish, Bullhead, Sucker,

and Carp are all found here. Muskellunge are generally

found in North Reservoir, while the Pickerel are located

in Long Lake. Saugeye are stocked in all lakes.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

As You Wake Up in The Morning & The Sun is Rising Over the Lake Facing You. The Colors, The Smell Of Fresh Air, (Remember That)... Since There is No Heavy Traffic Near By, Swans & Ducks Are Gonna Be the Only Sounds While Blue Heron Fly By. While You Do Have a Couple Of Neighbors Near By...It Still Remains Private & Secluded.

A real gem!

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights and two days at Steve and Gina's Lake House and we couldn't have been more happy with the stay.

The house: It's clean, net and has plenty of space and all the kitchen stuff needed, just bring your own food and beverages. We grilled on their grill, built a fire in their huge lakeside backyard and enjoyed the private outdoor deck.

The location: Great! I mean, what a spot!!! It's nestled on this secluded hidden drive that is so close to Akron and Cuyahoga, Canton and Cleveland. It's on a GREAT LAKE! Can't say enough good things.

Hosts: Gina and Steve were excellent hosts. We hung out by the fire our first night, great time.

Highly Recommended

Lots to do!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very clean and updated. Everything you needed was at your fingertips. Steve and Gina did a great job of making sure we were comfortable. Beautiful parks and vineyards within easy driving distance. Cleveland is just a short drive if you like the city scene. Great experience.

Terrible SCAM!

  • 1 of 5

SCAM! We left the property within 15 minutes upon arrival. Toilet was in a very bad condition and it was overflowing with sewage water. When I called the owner to inform the situation, he told me to clean it by myself. He is very unprofessional and rude. He also took our deposit money by claiming the damage on us after couple days. This property spoiled our vacation. We also notified the owner to stop texting us but he was keep texting us nonstop. In conclusion we had to block his number.

Owner's Response: This person was never in my home. It seems he tried to re rent it to some one else as a 3rd party and it is not permitted. So this is I guess is his way of getting his money back and reversing the charges. So the terrible scam is by this person. Sad people resort to doing this... Please refer to the dozens of families that enjoyed our home.
