Why Steve & Gina chose Ohio

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.

Could have been better

  • 3 of 5

While we did enjoy the home, we didn't enjoy Steve's attitude. I was in town with my sister to visit what is left of our family. When some of our cousins came over, hadn't seen them in decades, Steve got a bit upset that unfortunately they each came in separate cars. Rather than working with me to take advantage of the "ample" parking, he pretty but threatened to ask us to leave. Not wanting to have to find alternate lodging, sent everyone home. Might have been a different outcome had Gina been there as he stated she usually deals with the rental but she was dealing with a family issue. We wouldn't think of putting Steve out again so wont be back.

A Great Place for a Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is charming. The kitchen was well stocked and spacious. The deck overlooking the lake was a perfect place to sit. The house was clean and everything was functional. We rented this house due to it's proximity to local wineries. There are plenty of restaurants close by if you don't feel like cooking. Steve was great to work with.

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

Peaceful & Comfortable Nice Home

  • 5 of 5

We are pleasantly surprised and very happy with this home. Beautiful view of the lake with Dock access. Gorgeous landscaping! Beds are comfortable and the houses rather large. Kitchen has all the utensils that you would need. We definitely recommend staying here. Close to everything stores, kayaking, the lakes and restaurants. The owners have jet skis right here on the property for you to rent any time. Steve & Gina are good hosts!

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

The views from the house and deck were beautiful at any time of day. It was quiet, peaceful, and relaxing - just what we were looking for (but close to anything you might want). I enjoyed watching a flock of 13 ducks using the dock as a playground one morning at sunrise. The climbed onto the dock, jumped into the water (with splats), and repeated again and again! The house itselt was extremely clean and well maintained. Steve and Gina are very nice, and availble for whateve you might need. This was so much better than a hotel.

Nice Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Older house, but very clean and well cared for. Owners very nice and thoughtful. Lake was perfect for our fishing boat. Quiet and peaceful. We took our dog, Daisy with no problems. She also loved the lake! We had a very relaxing short stay! The only thing I found in fault is the kitchen could stand to have a few more things stocked in it. There was only 1 knife and it was a paring knife, so hard to cut bread. No mixing bowls either but we made do and had a nice time! Thanks again!
