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
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.
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.
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!
My siblings and I grew up a 'stones throw' away from this property. Growing up...the Portage Lakes were literally our backyard. We came back to Ohio to 'reconnect' with family and friends. This home was perfect for our needs. It is a very comfortable, clean house for a family get-together, or vacation. The home is located on a beautiful lakefront lot with its own dock. It is a very quiet property, but with easy access to every local activity. The back patio was a great place to view local wildlife while enjoying a morning cup of coffee. If you can't 'decompress' here, you can't anywhere. The owner (Eli) was very helpful, and easy to work with before/during our stay. I would come back to this property in a 'New York Minute.'
All things considered; price, availability, amenities, location, communication from owner, this was a great get away. The fishing wasn't as good as we had hoped but that was on us. The house was clean and kitchen was fully equipped. We left a note that we were not able to use the oven because it needed to be cleaned. Make sure you buy water for drinking and there is an additional faucet in the kitchen for water to cook with. The house as a tremendous sound system the view of the lake is great. Would be glad to go back if we had better luck fishing. Thanks Eli for opening up you home.
This home was great for gathering our family for a weekend visit. Even though it was winter time there were activities to keep us busy. The home was spacious, comfortable and accommodating. And an added point of interest was learning about the owner's professional accomplishments. We cannot wait to go back in warmer weather to better enjoy the lakes.
This was our first trip to the Portage Lakes area and we found it to be absolutely beautiful. The house was very comfortable, well equipped, nicely decorated and the view of the lake was awesome! While the weather was not cooperative, we were still able to enjoy being outside on the covered patio. We had a wonderful time!
We stayed at this home while we were in Manchester for my sister's funeral. It was very nice to have a home to meet in after the services. My thanks to Eli for accommodating our family during a difficult time.
