About Eli Williams

I'm an actor/ musician living in New York City. I have been in NYC for the past 5 years. I grew up in the Portage Lakes area and always loved being there. I do get home to see my family and stay at the house every few months.

Eli Williams purchased this house in 1993

Why Eli Williams chose Ohio

In 2000 I decided to upgrade the bathroom upstairs in the hallway by the bedrooms. I ended up re-modeling the entire house. I ripped down walls and the ceiling, put in 7 skylights and all new appliances.

What makes this house unique

It's beautiful in ALL-SEASONS. During boating months it's a perfect location as you can dock a boat (owned or rented) at the private dock located on the property.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The view and setting is blissful. I've concluded I have the best spot in Ohio to sit and enoy a glass of sauvignon blanc!

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful week of vacation at Portage Lake. We were looking for a place where we could relax while spending some time boating and biking. This was a great place for us since the house has its own dock on the lake. Actually, when we arrived there had been an accident that damaged the dock the week before. After informing the owner of the problem, he very promptly sent someone to repair it and we appreciated it very much. Eli was very helpful and accommodating. Coffee each morning on the patio by the lake was a great way to start the day. Then being able to walk across the lawn to hop in the boat for an afternoon on the water was very enjoyable. We are hopeful to return next year for our vacation and we would certainly recommend this house to others.

Fit our need perfectly!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a family funeral and needed a place to host family and friends. Your lakeside home was perfect for us. It is close to everything, food, shopping and activities. It is a home that we would consider using again.

Nice lakefront home!

  • 4 of 5

The best part of this home is that it is by a beautiful lake! We loved to have breakfast at the home and watch the mist rising from the lake, the fall colors, boats floating past and the abundant wildlife. The lake was also magical at night with various night lights along the shore shimmering on the water. Bedrooms upstairs are comfortable and there are several choices of where to sleep downstairs. I guess the issues are that the water from the faucets have an odor. Eli has remedied this problem by installing a reverse osmosis faucet for drinking/cooking. Then the cleanup expected before leaving is a bit more than normal. We had a good time at this house!
